This song, “1965,” is a fond look back to my early years. I was 12 years old in 1965 and already a guitar player and fledgling songwriter.

This piece is full of hidden or codified nuggets taken from music I remember from that time, like Motown, Bacharach, and the Beatles mostly.

These “nuggets” may be hard to hear on first listen but they are there.

Take care and remember to wash your hands.

1965 when I was 12 years old was a big year for music in my opinion.
I already played guitar and was writing some very primitive music of my own.

The Beatles were big on my list as were Wes Montgomery and Burt Bacharach.

This song somehow summons up some of the moods that year invokes for me.

Especially harmonically.
