Wednesday Tea Break -- December 1967

For your tea break today (yes, it's a day late), I'm offering the three songs at the very top of the charts in December 1967. That would be the December of my junior year at Bear Creek High School in Morrison Colorado.

If I recall, it was a great Christmas that year.

Who am I kidding? I don't remember a thing about it. Too much "incense and peppermints" in my cocoa. But let's not go there. Let's go instead to three groovy tea break songs. You dig, baby?

Number Three -- Incense and Peppermints by Strawberry Alarm Clock. (That's their photo at top left.)

Number Two -- The Rain, the Park and Other Things (The Flower Girl) by The Cowsills.

And Number One on this date in 1967 -- Daydream Believer by The Monkees.
