Getting my driver's license license in 1967 was quite exciting. Driving around in the family car was also exciting. It was a powder blue 1964 Mustang. Falling in love for the first time only happens once. That happened to me, wait for it, in 1967.
That was also the first time I was that sure of anything. The last line of the song says, "How can I be sure? I'll be sure with you." Well, I was sure but she was not. As it turns out, she gave me my one and only "Dear John" letter.
Happily, I have found the love of my life and we have been together for many decades. Still, hearing this song on the radio brings back a flood of memories of my youth, how naive I was, and the "decade of change" that many of us grew up in.
