The Stroll (or a version of it) was done at every prom I attended (5) in the 70’s. Always a favorite to dance the gauntlet.

I was walking past cars at a standstill during rush hour. Some guy rolled down his window and told me he'd pick me up if I was still walking and traffic cleared.

He not only picked me up he gave me a place to crash for a month. The 60's were a great time.

Of course I can't think of any more names to write...........

I remember when Marvin's "War... " came out and our country was stuck in Vietnam...... such an emotional time (for me). And I get that feeling every time I hear it.
That music, there is nothing like it.

My parents watched every Lawrence Welk program they showed on PBS. They also met him in person at his place in California and talked about that for years. I

There is nothing like the music of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Hearing a song from that period really takes me back. It was a golden era for music.

Oh my dad loved Welk and on one of my dad's trips to CA he had me take him to Welk's taping with audience and dancing from audience. My dad wanted me to dance with him but I felt embarrassed, what a fool I was...that dance would have made him so happy. It was at a ballroom in Hollywood I think. That was back in 60's, early 70's...

How could the Grateful Dead or The Byrds go without a mention?


Forgot about this one:

And anyone remember Humble Pie, Velvet Underground, Blood Sweat and Tears, or Laura Nyro?

Edited to add Jefferson Airplane and that's David Crosby there, too - if my dad had seen this, he would have thought the world was coming to an end:
