This week in music: 1969

(KFVS) -

Let's take a trip down memory lane to the summer of 1969.
The big headline was the moon landing and Neil Armstrong stepping on the lunar surface.
The Amazing Mets were on their way to the National League pennant and their first World Series championship.
And the Woodstock music festival would take place in upstate New York.
Speaking of music--these were the songs playing on the radio that summer.

Billboard's Hot 100 had Three Dog Night at number five with their hit One.
Oliver held down the number four position with Good Morning Starshine.

Checking in at number three Bad Moon Rising, a classic by Creedence Clearwater Revival, a song written by John Fogerty after watching the movie "The Devil and Daniel Webster."

At number two was Blood, Sweat and Tears with Spinning Wheel.

And in the number one position was and instrumental by Henry Mancini and his Orchestra. Some radio stations refused to play The Love Them from Romeo and Juliet because the song was considered too soft.
