My last month of high school. May 1966.
From the truly ridiculous:
- It's a Small World opens at Disneyland.
- 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.
- 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.
