Song of San Francisco

Scott McKenzie

Today in 1967, the song San Francisco, performed by Scott McKenzie, started a four-week run at the number one spot on the UK singles chart. It’s also referred to as the unofficial anthem of the counter culture movement of the 60s.
The song starts out with these lyrics:
"If you’re going to San Francisco be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
If you’re going to San Francisco you’re going to meet some gentle people there."
