1968 In Film And On TV

What music was playing on movie and TV screens in 1968?

As heard on S2E4 of Music 101

From The Graduate, Simon & Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson”.

Alex North’s version of Richard Strauss’ “Also Sprach Zarathustra” for 2001 A Space Odyssey.

In 1968, The Monkee’s not only signed off their TV show, they debuted their new movie, Head. At the time it was released, no-one was really sure what to make of it but as the years have passed, the music (and Frank Zappa’s cameo) hold up well.
