We bet you can finish this lyric line: “If you’re going to San Francisco…..
The song was written by John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas, and was made a hit by John’s childhood friend Philip Wallach Blondheim.
Philip had changed his name long before the song was a hit, so you will know him as Scott McKenzie.
If Scott was still with us, he would be celebrating his birthday today. Scott passed away on Aug. 18, 2012. He was 73 years old.
“If You’re Going To San Francisco ‘Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair” was one of those songs that inspired many members of a generation to move to San Francisco.
Scott had the perfect voice to sing it.
Happy Birthday Scott. RIP.
