    10. Bob Dylan - Lay Lady Lay
    9. Simon & Garfunkle - The Boxer
    8. CS&N - Suite: Judy Blue Eyes
    7. Cream - Crossroads
    6. Who - Pinball Wizard
    5. Zombies - Time of the Season
    4. Youngbloods - Get Together (THE song of the Hippie Era)
    3. Stones - Gimme Shelter

    1.&2. (can't separate them)

    Brahms's A German Requiem and Wagner's Das Rheingold both premiered in 1869.

    When it comes to '69 music, to paraphrase Keats, that is all I know on earth and all I need to know. :-)

    Didn't Pearl Jam and Lou Reed do covers of Vaillant's double-texted ballade for 3 voices?

    I don't believe I've ever heard of three of Atticus's 1969 list and three of his oldies list (including Valliant).

    In 1969 I was 12. The Jets won the Super Bowl (I was a Jets fan at the time), The Mets won the World Series, we went to the Moon and Woodstock happened.

    I think when a boy is 12 it may be the perfect age. The songs listed above, excepting the BB King tune, all bring back stirring and vivid memories of that summer and year.

    I think I am out of place here. In 1969 I was 38, an oil company executive living in Canada and I do not remember that I even knew Woodstock was happening.

    Great list! I was 15, and as with all of us, I will always be drawn to the music of my youth. Dad had just retired from 20 years in the Navy, and we moved that summer from CA to NY (Long Island). We stopped for a couple of weeks to see Grandma and Grandpa in Walton, NY. Dad had back surgery (I think in Oneonta), and his roomie during recovery was a young man who had injured himself at Woodstock. He had lots of stories!
