Those Were the Best Days of My Life
In the history of music videos, "Summer of '69" is an early one. MTV was in its infancy and this song looks longingly back to another time when Adams was turned on to his "first real 6 string" guitar and an awesome summer. It released in 1984, when I worked for XL102 in Richmond, VA, my all-time favorite radio station. We were a rocker and this was an instant classic. Now, 29 years later, I'm looking back nostalgically to the time of its release as well as the Summer of '69, the year I graduated high school.
