Popular Songs Of 1967, Vol. 2

The year was 1967. A year in which such future music stars as Dave Matthews, Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), John Popper (Blues Traveler), Harry Connick, Jr., Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, and Faith Hill would come into existence. Also the year that these great songs first came onto the scene. Part 2 of 4 of the Popular Songs of 1967 starts...NOW!  ~  JH
