Intros Quiz: 1967 edition

January 2nd, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

1967 model prepares to drive her Camino to wherever the Summer of Love is happening.

Here we begin another new five-yearly cycle of intros quizzes, starting with 45 years ago: 1967 (and what a great year for music that was). Next month we’ll skip to 1972, then 1977 and so on.

1967 was the year the first edition of Rolling Stone was published, so-called “race riots” broke out in cities such as Detroit and Cleveland, Muhammad Ali is stripped of his heavyweight title for refusing induction into US Army, Dr Christiaan Barnard performs the first successful heart transplant in Cape Town, Biafra declares independence from Nigeria and a civil war begins, the first ATM is installed in England, The Beatles released Sgt Pepper’s and Elvis married Priscilla.

As always, twenty intros to hit songs from that year of 5-7 seconds in length. All were single releases and/or hits that year. The answers will be posted in the comments section by Thursday. If the pesky number 18 bugs you, go to the Contact Me tab above for the answers, or  better, message me on Facebook. If you’re not my FB friend, click here.
