Friday Night Videos

In 1965...
  • The first US troops arrived in Vietnam
  • Nearly 3,000 people, including Dr. King, were arrested in Selma
  • The Frankfurt Auschwitz Trials concluded with over 60 former Nazis receiving life sentences
  • Malcolm X was assassinated
  • India and Pakistan battled in Kashmir
  • The Watt Riots raged in Los Angeles
  • Hurricane Betsy killed 76 people in New Orleans
  • And this little ditty reached #13 on the pop charts! It's Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows from the movie Ski Party!
This peppy tune about finding happiness with a boy is sung by the affable Lesley Gore, closeted lesbian and secret Jew.

Which reminds me, nothing is what it seems.

Have a secret weekend!
