Tune in Tuesday {4}: San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Ginger at GReads that showcases music. It  helps bring attention to new and/or old songs or artists.

This Tuesday’s Tune: “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)  by Scott McKenzie

Just listening to San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)’ calms me down. It has such a feeling of inherent serenity to it!  Scott McKenzie’s soothing vocals fit the song to a T . 

The song was written by John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas in 1967 to promote the Monterey Pop Festival.

To me San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair) serves as a reminder of a much freer time, a time when the world was changing and nothing seemed impossible.

    1. Welcome!

      Yup music is music. I can listen to Maroon 5 and still appreciate The Four Aces. I don’t think that there should be any boundaries when it comes to books, music, movies and TV – in other words the things that keep me alive!

  1. Aw, I loved this from the moment it started. You’re right, it has that happy calming factor. Strangely, I never was a fan of a lot of ‘old’ music but lately I seem to be looking back and enjoying this kind of music a lot more then I used to.
    Thanks so much for sharing this one!

    1. You’re welcome! I, on the other hand, love ‘old’ music! Sometimes I feel like an older person stuck in a 20-something body! 😉

      As a 90’s baby, I grew up listening to a lot of ‘crap’. Not that the 90’s didn’t have some superb tunes but there were a lot of crap like teen pop princesses and boy bands. My mom and dad’s tastes shaped my early years but then I ventured out on my own and found that I loved music from the 50’s and 60’s. If I believed in rebirth, I would have figured that I was a reincarnation of someone who was young during that era!
