A 50-Year Memory: Video for May

My last month of high school. May 1966.

From the truly ridiculous:

  • It's a Small World opens at Disneyland.
To the wonderfully sublime:
  • The legendary album Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys is released.
  • Bob Dylan's seminal album, Blonde on Blonde is released in the U.S.
And omens of things to come:
  • Tens of thousands of anti-war demonstrators again picket the White House, then rally at the Washington Monument.

The Mamas and Papas spent three weeks of May at the top of the Billboard Top 100. A wonderful song by a group  of talented individuals.

Monday, Monday

John Phillips (1935–2001),
Denny Doherty (1940–2007),
Mama Cass Elliot (1941–1974),
Michelle Phillips née Gilliam (b. 1944)
