Top Radio Hits From the Summer of '69

The summer of 1969 was the last summer of one of the greatest decades for music. And in during that summer, the last episode of "Star Trek" aired on television, Nixon pledged to pull troops from Vietnam, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon (while Michael Collins waited in the Command Module), pregnant actress Sharon Tate was murdered along with seven others by Charles Manson and his "Family," and the first-ever Woodstock occurred. In fact, the summer of '69 was so memorable that Bryan Adams wrote a song all about it 16 years later.

Here are the songs that graced the top of the charts during the summer of '69.

Get Back - The Beatles with Billy Preston

Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet - Henry Mancini and his Orchestra

In the Year 2525 - Zager and Evans

Honky Tonk Women - The Rolling Stones
