I love this song. From 1970 here is Brook Benton.
Gas was 36 cents a gallon but the median household income was about $9,000. Unemployment was 3.5%, and The Beatles break up. The big movies were Love Story and Mash. On this date in 1970, The Long and Winding Road by the Beatles was number one on the charts. Vietnam, Nixon, Apollo 13, Woodstock, and Kent State were all a part of 1970.

I was living in my parent's home, in Michigan, working and trying to figure out where and how I fit in all of that. It took a few more years, in the 70s but I finally did.
Where were you? What were you doing?
