    Do Any Of You Remember The 60s?

    Yep....I was there. Spent a good portion of it in the Army so I missed a lot of the bullshit dope culture but I still move to those old sounds. Got married in 69 and still together. Never did drugs and when I went for my background in 70, the captain who was doing them didn't believe me. After all, I was a vet, wasn't I? High school sucked, never got to dance with the girl I had a huge crush on and missed all of my reunions due to somebody getting killed at the wrong time. I remember it ALL!!!

    Thanks for the great post!!!

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    The 60s?!

    Yeah! I read about them in a book once, or maybe saw the display at the museum ...

    Listen to the music a lot though. Maybe because it still sounds like English, and isn't about hoes, axing questions, rolling blunts, or shooting people all the time. It also doesn't seem as emo as rock music now either.

    Thanks

    I was born in the 60's. Does that count? I remember the Apollo moon landing. Watched it on TV. I was a baby during the Watts riots, and living in Los Angeles. Inglewood to be exact. My dad had to drive through it all to go to work. They never bothered him, but others weren't so lucky.

    I still remember a lot from that site though.

    Interesting clips. I wasn't alive in the 1960s, but I've read in history books that it was a time of violence, war, assassinations, protests, and civil and political turmoil in the US and in many other countries. So it's amazing that these clips present the 60s as a "simpler time"! I guess history is in the eye of the beholder.

    I remember the 60's and it wasn't always a good time. I remember my brother being in the Army and me being terrified that he was going to go to Vietnam and get killed. I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis, and going to sleep afraid that the world was going to be destroyed. I remember the Kennedy assasinations, MLK assassination, the anti-war riots, and the first man on the moon. I also remember it as a time when Mom and Dad were alive, my Grandparents were alive, and all of my aunts and uncles were alive. It was the time of my youth, and a time of innocence for me.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Gee,I like to remember hippies,and free love,being able to have a partner for a night and not worrying that you were going to die.Beach Boy songs at the beach,with girls in bikinis that at least left a little to the immagination,buying beer with a fake i.d. and when you got caught the cop kicked you in the ass took your beer and tried to figure out where you would be the next night,cause he needed more for his party.

    Cruising the "strip" in your "rod" even if it was a 1963 Ford Falcon,going from Hoppers drive in,down the main drag a coupla miles to the Frostop drive in and back again all night on Saturday (at .30cents a gallon),AND if you were lucky getting a parking spot in one and backing your rod in and "holding court" all night for the cost of a .25 soft drink that you would spice up,usually with something from dads' liquor cabinet.

    When you were broke ,you could go to the local hi school or rec center to a sock hop and be kissing somebody within the hour,usual cost about 50 cents,to help pay for the live band.

    A drive by was when you passed your exs' house to see if she(he) went out that night,a "hit" was when someone handed you a "left handed" cigarette(that was being shared by a dozen people,and more often than not was home grown),and you felt stoned.

    Sitting around listening to Sgt.Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band,with a black light on the poster on the wall was risque.Especially with that stereo that you had to open up and seperate the other speaker ,that doubled as the lid,and move it 6' away for that stereo sound.

    Believe me,I could go on and on ,and I am sure some feel I have.
    WAR,yes,we have all had our wars,EVERY generation,whether it be WWII,Korea,Viet Nam,etc.I personally would love to forget the beginnings of the 70s'(that was my military time),but instead of dwelling on that negative aspect,I prefer thinking about the time that brought me to that point.

    Merry Christmas all,and tonight,while you wait for Santa,and lay snug in your bed,say a prayer for our troops,I KNOW,what they are doing,they are remembering THEIR fun times,and not dwelling

    I wasn't born until 62 but I remember the late 60s. I had an older sister at home and I remember her music, big hair, "hippy" looking friends. I also remember believing that when you got old enough you had to go to Vietnam. I still remember the news stories on TV from there.
