Music of 1969
1968 saw several milestones in music. "Classical Gas"
written and performed by Mason Williams would become the bar to which composers and guitarists would
aspire. On the other end of the spectrum The Doors front man Jim Morrison became the first person to
actually be arrested on stage during a performance. It happened at a concert in New Haven, CT and
would be repeated at a 1969 concert in Miami, Fl. Morrison's continued public intoxication and
lewd on stage antics made him a fan favorite but not so much with authorities.
Do musical scores sell movies or do movies sell their scores, anyway the movie "The Graduate"
catapulted Simon & Garfunkel back into a #1 position on the chart for three weeks with "Mrs Robinson".
I hope you are enjoying your
remembrances of 1960's music.
