"Summertime will be a love-in there"

Scott McKenzie had a good life, & thank heavens he had only one "hit."

"San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)" was not only one of the worst pop songs ever to climb into the upper reaches of the charts (1967), it was also phony & deceitful beyond belief. But many thousands of teenagers believed it, to their everlasting regret if it enticed them from their small towns to Haight-Ashbury. If they chose to go to L.A., the song's composer, John Phillips & his bag of coke were waiting in Laurel Canyon for the under-aged girls.
