Comments:
The summer of 1967 #2 hit, "San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair)" was definitely a product of it's time. Sung by folk-rocker, Scott McKenzie and written and produced by "Papa" John Phillips. It was definitely about the summer of love in 1967. McKenzie, who was raised in North Carolina & Virginia, himself was originally a singer in the New York based folk group, the Journeyman, that would later revolve into The Mamas & The Papas. A year after The Mamas & The Papas went out to California (in 1965), McKenzie followed. Phillips wrote "San Francisco" for his friend McKenzie. McKenzie himself would later co-write the Beach Boys' 1988 #1 hit, "Kokomo" with Phillips, Mike Love & Terry Melcher. McKenzie continues to live in both California and Virginia.
