Summer is officially here. June 21st, 2017 marks the longest day of the year. Days begin to shorten and we're a month into summer break for the kiddos. Oh, to the point...Summer of Love. There was more to the Summer of Love than, well, love.

In 1967, both before and during this amazing period, the old guard upped the ante while new faces proved they had something to say. From pristine pop to magnificent, boundary-pushing recordings, the above gallery of top songs from the Summer of Love shows that anything and everything was fair game.
