  • a warm san francisco nite is as rare as hens teeth...even in summer. "The coldest winter i ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." - Mark Twain .................. but, what does he know.......... i still like the song
  • cool
  • troubador Eric notating the era in song!
  • @silversurfer250 Good post. I vaguely remember the era and boy was it a period of change: Beatles, Motown, Flower Power, Free Love, Drugs, Twiggy, Groovy London, Pirate Radio, Radio One, etc., but most of all . . . there was a feeling of change. Youth was taking over.
  • The song starts with a spoken intro urging European listeners to fly to San Francisco so they could understand the song. Asked by the NME in 1967 about The Animals losing traction in England, Burdon said: "Britain is not as aware of what we are trying to communicate as the Americans. The whole world still needs a kick up the pants - the Americans are one move ahead. The record company was afraid I would offend England if I released 'San Franciscan Nights'. They thought I had offered enough insults to England."
  • Strange Intro...almost as though they were 2 different songs...
  • i like the acoustioc in this song
