Immerwieder höre ich diesen Song gerne , denn er drückt mit jeder Zeile das Gefühl der Jugend dieser Zeit aus .
Wenn der Song heute im Radio gespielt wird , dann ist er stets ein willkommener Song bei dem man träumen kann von Zeiten als wir noch andere Dinge im Kopf hatten als heute .
Er ist und bleibt für mich einer der zehn Top-Songs der Musikgeschichte und wird mich auch in der Zukunft stets an tolle Zeiten der Menschheit erinnern !

Dear Scott,

what a great musician, what a great music. The song of SAN FRANCISCO has
always accompanied me in my life and will be in my heart when I visit S.F. in August 2015.

Thanks a lot!

Tja, ich sah vor ca. 2 Jahren einen Bericht über eine deutsche Lufthansa-Pilotin während des Fluges nach San Franzisco,wo sie einen riesen Jumbo zum ersten Mal über den Teich flog und ihn butterzart auf dem Flughafen in SF landete. Dann sah man die Crew am nächsten Tag über die SanFrancisco Bridge mit Fahrrädern fahren und im Hintergrund lief der Song "if you come to San Francisco". Ich mußte weinen, weil dieser Song mich so an meine Jugend erinnerte und ich ihn so lange nicht mehr gehört hatte. Ich googlete und fand eine Video - Aufnahme von Scott McKenzie auf dem Festival in Monterey und hörte den Song immer wieder.Eigentlich kannte ich Scott garnicht, nur seinen Song.
Kurze Zeit später las ich die Todesanzeige im deutschen Magazin DER SPIEGEL, und ich war unendlich traurig, daß Scott gestorben war. Nicht zu glauben!! Aber sein Song lebt weiter. Du lebst auch weiter Scott - irgendwo und ganz sicher in den Herzen Deiner Fans.

"San francisco" ist neben " a whiter shade of pale" der Soundtrack dieses wunderbaren Sommers von 1967, der unsterblich bleiben wird. Scott und viele andere sind gegangen; ihre Lieder und dieser Spirit werden nie vergehen.

"Es gibt im Leben für alles eine Zeit,
eine Zeit der Freude,
der Stille, der Trauer
und eine Zeit der dankbaren Erinnerung".

Scott, du bist und bleibst für immer in meinem Herzen und ich hoffe, es geht dir gut, dort oben in deinem Blumenhimmel.
Love you...
Gitti aus Germany

I will always remember San Francisco as whenever I listened to this song it took all the worries of life, especially in 1967, out of my mind. I was just 14 years old then and this song made me feel like San Francisco was special

Dieser Song lässt dich einfach innehalten, es ist, als wärst du elektrisiert und als würde die Zeit angehalten...

Erinnerungen, Gefühle, Inspirationen - Tiefsinnige Gedanken an dieses einzigartige Lied und an diesen unvergessenen Sänger, Scott McKenzie !

Danke Scott & mach´s gut, wo du auch gerade bist...

For the first time ever I searched for the song "San Francisco" as our sailing fleet from NZ is over there and that brought the song which I have always liked to mind. It's a beautiful song and heartfelt thanks to Scott who I know now is no longer with us but I am so grateful for what he did.

I am from Southern England, near Portsmouth. I was so inspired by San Francisco as a 12 year old that it has driven my whole life. Everything about the song is perfect. The voice, the slight echo, the melody, the instrumentals .... wonderful... it has focused my life. Now, aged 58 I live for the day and try to treat every one with care and respect. Scott Mackenzie was clearly a very special individual who moved the whole world at a time of great change.

I am from Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, USA. Even though I was only 10 years old when "San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair)" was released in May/June of 1967, I still remember hearing it at that time, although I do not remember how I first heard it (such as record, radio, etc.). I am 56, and still feel, as I did when I first heard this masterful paen of hippie history, that it is the best example of its genre.

"San Francisco" was the inspiration for me to take my youngest daughter to San Francisco. The song always struck some hidden chord in my heart. I was in a bad abusive marriage, and all of my four grown children had terrible physical and emotional problems as a result, one of whom died from suicide due to Schizophrenia. My family was broken and, at one time, my youngest daughter was the only one with me. Unfortunately, she is succumbing to an eating disorder. Christine had never been on an airplane, and I had been once. I was determined to take her on one. Where should we go? "San Francisco" had touched our hearts in a way that only those who have endured much pain could truly understand. We went, and to this day, we are constantly hearing something about San Francisco in the news. We laugh and talk about returning some day. That day will probably never come, as she is very ill. But that song, "San Francisco" and the beautiful voice of Scott McKenzie, is a like a balm to my pain. Somewhere in those lyrics and notes, I hear God telling me everything will be alright in the end. I will smile then, and I will remember my beautiful daughter with flowers in her hair.

if you going to San Fransisco, einer der schönsten
Songs die ich im Leben gehört habe.

Wir denken an Dich, Scott

Hello Scott,

I was a big fan in the 60's as a teenager and you left a lasting impression. I recently met a man in my age group called Alan Beasley who claims to have been a member of a Liverpool Group who you managed and would love to hear the story of this.
Keep up the good work.

Never underestimate the effect of a one-hit-wonder. - It brings focus to an artist, a song, a message in a scale that other performers can only dream of. This is what makes Scott (and thank you equally John Philips) a legend. - When a song like San Francisco pops up time after time in your memory ... your inner voice ... and you see before you Scott quietly, thougtfully, brilliantly performing this evergreen (in the word's most positive sense) ... you're paralyzed. You're calm. You're satisfied. You BELIEVE it's possible. Peace, love and harmony. - Thank you guys. Let's keep the dream alive!
