This song just has a hippie vibe to it. It is all about love, rebelling, and giving in to your inner wants. With the hippie movement being so big during this year,I thought that this song was a good representation of 1969. Also, Rock and Roll was very popular in this time period. Almost all music had people singing almost like they would shout and crazy distorted guitar solos. Led Zeppelin is known as a rock and roll so I think that they are also a good example of what music was like in this year
"Whole Lotta Love”
You need coolin', baby, I'm not foolin',

Way down inside... woman... You need... Love.
Shake for me, girl. I wanna be your backdoor man.
Keep it coolin', baby.
The Godfather is a crime novel written by Mario Puzo and published by G. P. Putnam’s Sons in 1969. If you are one of the few people who don’t know the plot of this famous story, it is about the Sicilian Mafia in and around New York City, focusing on Don Vito Corleone. It is a classic novel and was made into a movie in 1972, with sequels made in 1974 and 1990.
Mario Puzo was born into a family from Campania, Italy in New York City on October 15, 1920. He served in World War II and after that, worked as a journalist in his hometown. As a journalist, he learned a lot about the Mafia from investigating stories from their crimes. That was how he got his inspiration for The Godfather. He died on July 2, 1999.
Super Bowl III
New York Jets
This game is considered one of the greatest underdog victories in the Super Bowl. The New York Jets were supposed to be crushed by the Baltimore Colts but managed to come out of nowhere and win the game. The Jets controlled the entire game and at one point in the fourth quarter, they were up sixteen to nothing.
Joe Namath, Super Bowl MVP
Joe Namath, the quarterback for the New York Jets, was awarded MVP of the Super Bowl. Even though he did not throw a touchdown or complete a pass in the whole fourth quarter, he still was considered the best performance in the game. Born in Pennsylvania in 1943, he was a very athletic kid. When he graduated, he didn’t just receive offers from NFL teams. He was also recruited by baseball teams but decided to go with football. He is also in the pro football hall of fame.

A popular show about a police group that stop crime all throughout Hawaii, this is one of my favorite shows of this time. Starring
Jack Lord, James MacArthur, and Kam Fong Chun, this show aired weekly for 12 seasons and had almost 300 episodes. One of the things I like about this show is that everything was shot on location. Almost the entire thing was actually filmed in Hawaii. Also, I never got tired of hearing McGarrett's catchphrase, “Book ‘em, Danno.” The show was great every season and never got repetitive or boring until the end. After the tenth season, several of the main actors left the show. After this, the show just wasn’t the same and only lasted for two more seasons. I give it four and a half out of five stars only because they drug out the show longer than they should have. Otherwise, it would have been a five out of five.
Richard Nixon was born January 9, 1913 in California. He was born into a Quaker family. He made his way up the political ladder and served as vice president from 1953 to 1960. He ran for president in 1960 but lost to John F. Kennedy. In 1968, he ran for president again, hoping that democrats being split on the Vietnam war would help him, a republican, win the race. After Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated, Nixon was almost guaranteed the presidency.
Nixon wanted to end the Vietnam war and help the economy, which was not in a good state. At this point, a lot of people liked him because he was trying to help the economy but later he became one of the least liked presidents in American history.
Life as a Teenager in 1969
The sixties was a time for American teens that I can’t describe in any other way than rebellious. Teenagers wanted to define themselves as their own person. I think this is one of the main
Thisgave them a common enemy to bring them together. The main thoughts were peace and love. This is also the year that Woodstock took place, which was a large hippie gathering. But not all teenagers were hippies. Others were kids like the Greasers and the Socs from The Outsiders. Some were normal kids like the Socs and others, like the Greasers, were just struggling to get by. With the economy being terrible and inflation the highest it has ever been since before these people were born, a lot of people had problems financially. It was probably one of the most influential moments that teenagers have had in the history of America and around the world.
reasons that the hippie movement lasted as long as it did. People did to do what they wanted, not what society wanted them to do. Also, teenagers could hate the government. The government was the reason that they were in a war that they shouldn’t even be a part of that was destroying the economy.
The Moon Landing
In 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon. Then a few months later, Pete Conrad and Alan Bean landed there. This marks one of the most significant scientific accomplishments of humanity. It was also the end of the Space Race, a race between the U.S. and the USSR to be the first country to put a man on the moon. This all started with a famous speech by John F. Kennedy where he said that America should put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. We just barely made it. With the USSR being thought of as the opposite and enemy of anything American, many people were happy that America was first. Others thought that it was a big waste of money. I think that this is something that America needed to do to prove once and for all that they were the country to beat. This was a way to show up the USSR and show that a country can still be powerful without communism. America could use another opportunity like this today to show other countries that they are still the America of 1969, the best and most powerful country in the world and not afraid of anything.
