1965--It was meant to be.

I was looking back to see what Pop Culture permeated 1965. I may have discovered my love for corny sitcoms, goofy movies, and unrealistic musicals (and when any the two should meet) is actually rooted in the year of my birth.

Included in the list of top movies were: The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, and Mary Poppins

Top TV shows: The Dick Van Dyke Show(which I still watch in reruns online), I Dream of Jeanie, Green Acres, and Get Smart

Also debuting on TV that year: Rodger's and Hammerstein's Cinderella, and A Charlie Brown Christmas, and Barbra Streisand's My Name is Barbra

Top Albums: Mary Poppins soundtrack, Sound of Music Soundtrack, My Fair Lady Soundtrack, and Fiddler on the Roof Soundtrack.

This may circumstantial evidence, but it seems very compelling to me. I leave you with this piece of flair once sent to me by sister-in-law.


  1. these are great movies though, I love these musicals, the feel good factor...we need more of them in a world where film makers are obsessed with fitting as much blood and violence as they can into a 2 hour movie!

  2. I say it all the time things are so not how they used to be!!! (oh and I was singing that to you!!!)

  3. Love Get Smart! And of course A Charlie Brown Christmas was a classic . . . but it was much better when you had to wait for it to come on TV rather than being able to just plug in a DVD.

  4. We may be related is some strange way. I love all these shows too! Mary Poppins is the 1st movie I remember going to the theater and seeing!

  5. Really? We could have been separated at birth.
    Hope you had a great birthday!
