BIRTHDAY NUMBER ONES - AUGUST 1967
San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair)
Scott McKenzie
Fifty years ago, this song was Number One in the UK charts for 4 weeks until 5th September 1967 when it replaced another "Summer of Love" classic: All You Need is Love by The Beatles.

San Francisco was written by Californian hippie doyen John Phillips of The Mamas And The Papas, whose best known hits California Dreamin', Monday Monday and Dedicated to the One I Love have arguably aged far better but never made Number One in the UK at least.

Phillips organised the legendary Monterey Pop festival when tens of thousands of hippies gathered on the California coast in June 1967 to listen to Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding and the Who - and Scott McKenzie who closed the festival with this song.

We have this song and other Number Ones from 1967 in stock and available for framing for urgent orders.
