US Top 40 Singles: w/e July 29, 1967





The US hits from the original "summer of love" included a remarkable single from Janis Ian that she wrote when she was 13 years old, recorded when she was 14 and released in September 1966 when she was 15. It was nearly a year later, after it caught the ear of Leonard Bernstein who then raved about it on national TV, that "Society's Child" was reserviced to radio stations and given a heavier promotional push, sending it into the top 40. The song's topic of interracial romance prevented airplay in some markets due to controversy.
