30 Days of Songs, Day 14

Day 14: A song from the year you were born.

How am I supposed to know the songs of the year of my birth? I couldn't even contain my bodily fluids, let alone recognize melody and songwriting and lyrics. Hahahaha!

The fact is I was born in one of the greatest times ever in music history - the summer of love, the summer of Woodstock (just a forty-minute-or-so drive from the hospital, in fact), the summer man walked on the moon (my mother was in labor with me watching the moon landing).

But I don't know exactly which songs came from that year, or were popular then. I know many of them as oldies and great songs. So I Googled "songs from 1969" and found this list. (Btw, I'm very glad "Googled" still sets off my spell-checker, even if I use it.) Some great stuff, many of which I could justify posting here as a favorite.

However, I'm almost halfway through this meme and have yet to post a Beatles song, which is just not right. So from that list I pick #25. And the video comes from their last performance, which was early in 1969, the year of my birth.
