Believe it or not, mine was Batman. According to my family, I would stand in front of the tv and sing when the Batman tv show theme came on. It premiered in 1966, shortly before my first birthday.
Here I am on Christmas morning in 1966. Notice my sister Mary in the background with curlers in her hair. In the 1960s, my sisters would sleep all night in soup-can-sized curlers with their heads hanging off the bed so they could go to school with a flip hairdo.
Here's Mary's 11th grade school picture from 1967 with a pretty snazzy flip. In case you want to sing along with the Batman theme, here are the lyrics:
My friend Glenn and I recently returned from a trip to Amsterdam, Paris
and Venice. I first went to Amsterdam and Paris on a school trip when I
was 14. The trip cost $750 and I paid for it myself with my summer-job
money. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made and I'll never
forget it. Is there a place you've always wanted to visit? Go there!
There's nothing like traveling. It's the best gift you can give yourself
and the memories will last forever.
Supposedly, the music that you listened to when you were 13 is music you always have a fondness for throughout your life. I turned 13 in 1978 when disco was still huge. The songs from Saturday Night Fever were played on the radio A LOT. My junior high Saturday Night Fever-themed dance was cancelled due to the blizzard of '78. My sister Janet and I never missed Dance Fever. This scene epitomizes that era for me.
What music did you listen to when you were 13? Boogie on!
Society's Child was a hauntingly beautiful and poignant song about the taboo subject of interracial relationships. Janis Ian hit the charts with this song as a 16-year-old in 1967. Many radio stations banned it. Ugh.
