Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair

Following on from my last post about the SF field trip; one of the first things people said to me was "be sure to wear some flowers in your hair". This Scott McKenzie song from 1967 continues to capture a certain mood and encapsulates a whole spirit of the 1960s for many.

If you're going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you're going to San Francisco
You're gonna meet some gentle people there

For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair

All across the nation such a strange vibration
People in motion
There's a whole generation with a new explanation
People in motion people in motion

For those who come to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there

If you come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there



Together with 'California Dreaming' they are a kind of soundtrack for the trip (download onto your Ipod for instant mood enhancement during the visit). OK, California Dreaming is about LA but it's still an amazing song.

Thanks Greg. Yes, feel free to add your suggestions. I'm hoping to join the 21st century with an iPhone for Christmas so I too can carry the portable soundtrack :-)

Who knows Chris- soon you may even be broadcasting illegal radio like our friend on our trip down to Sheffield! What a modern and high-tech individual he is!
