14. Wow! I'm surprised that I remember all but one.

Especially because I reported for Army induction in March '67, and I don't remember having the chance to listen to music much at that time.

The Association's 'Windy' wasn't one of my favorites of theirs, but I'd been a charter member of their fan club, saw them perform a bunch of times, and interviewed them several times for my HS newspaper. When I was editor-in-chief, I even wrote an editorial that cited their lyrics (from their song, 'Enter the Young'). And when I learned from friends on Student Council that the act for a school concert fell through at the last minute, I was able to whip out the card of the Association's business manager...so they ended up performing at my HS.

I didn't get to Vietnam until '69, but #2--'The Letter' by the Box Tops--was still a huge favorite with the troops there (naturally).

The only one on the list I don't remember: 10. Love’s Gone Bad – Underdogs.
