Melanie was it for me circa 1970 till now...I listened to this song stoned to the eyeballs in a place long ago and far away before our daughters were even a twinkle in our eyes... ahhh... 'twas a lovely time...it was an innocent time really.... made us the wicked bastards we ended up becomming.... but not so wicked as those who have lost their way and see no longer the dream of better things but of self....

Melanie is all... enjoy!

Sorry, for someone brought up in the 60's, matured in the 70's, I believe that is when the world went to pop! Its a bit like the roman empire time and it time we grew up.

Grumpy me! sitting here with sweat dripping down my face from hormones!

Team Gherkin... but she didn't appear on the Woodstock I saw at the movies...
tarbabyjim - hello and thanks
Jacqui, having been a parent of two now in their thirties - I know what went wrong with the 60's and the promise...drugs and too many people never grew up. I was 18 when Melanie became my favourite. By 19 I stopped having our weekly smoke, and went clean...got pregnant and have been pretty responsible since... but I still remember how I felt at 18 which helped a lot when the kids hit their mid teens...
Melanie's songs are still beautiful listened to - straight as a dye...but that little bit of time was our little honeymoon time short as it was...and I can say I am glad summer is over and I can deal with Menpoause again in the chilly months...poor you.
