'Rockola Tempo' 1959 Jukebox
'Rockola Tempo' 1959 Jukebox

 
This weeks theme is...Festival Fever
 
Inspired by the mighty Glastonbury Festival!
 
 
1. San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair) by Scott McKenzie

If you're off to Glastonbury have fun, keep the peace and wear some flowers!
'San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair)' entered the chart on 12th July 1967 reaching Number 1


2. Woodstock by Matthews Southern Comfort

A cover of Joni Mitchell's classic song, the Matthews Southern Comfort version also became a hit in its own right
'Woodstock' entered the chart on 26th September 1970 reaching Number 1


3. Itchycoo Park by The Small Faces

Obviously I wouldn't advocate getting high on anything other than atmosphere and excitement!
'Itchycoo Park' entered the chart on 9th August 1967 reaching Number 3


Happy listening!
