CANCON (Canadian Content) was established in 1970, so prior to that, a Canadian artist had to struggle to get their record heard on Canadian Radio.  There was alot of great artists that went ignored, but there were a fair number that were able to make it.  In August, and the 1st week of September, the #1 spot in Canada was dominated by 3 Canadian Artists, one after the other, in this order ...

Andy Kim - Baby, I Love You
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmzO6mPH74Q

Motherlode - When I Die
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhv2JUkOqJc

The Guess Who - Laughing
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVlWU6M8krY

Laughing was #1 the first week of September.  It was replaced the following week by Sugar Sugar by the Archies, which was written by Andy Kim

The last week of June, 1969, the #1 single in Canada was Good Morning Starshine by Oliver.  This song was co-written by a Canadian composer named Galt MacDermot.

The first week of July, 1969, Good Morning Starshine was replaced at the Top of the Canadian chart with Spinning Wheel by Blood, Sweat and Tears.  This was written by the group's lead singer, Canadian born David Clayton-Thomas

This could have only 'come' out in 1969...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3Fa4lOQfbA

So much legend surrounds this song, that it's unreal! Serge (who told Whitney Houston he wanted to 'do' something with her live on French TV), had originally recorded this with Brigitte Bardot who then balked at the idea of it being released. Jane B had no such worries and, duly recorded and released, it started to sell...

However, as its fame grew, the record company who originally released it decided to (ahem!) withdraw it, under pressure from disgruntled shareholders when the record stood proudly at #2 (can you imagine this happening today?) and a small, independent label in the UK picked it up and it 'climaxed' at the very top! The BBC had apoplexy and wouldn't even go near it! People often wondered if they were actually doing something more than just singing...

And that was it, nothing else from the pair - a true one-hit wonder, but magnificent in every sense!

And just for good measure, the record did indeed hit #69 during its US chart run - something that Serge thought was fantastic!

I'm old enough to actually remember this on the radio back in 1969, because it reminded me a little of "Whiter shade of pale"...at least the Hammond organ part. A great story, a great song, a true one-hit wonder, or one night stand..maybe both.

"Saved by the Bell" is a 1969 single written and recorded by Robin Gibb. It was released in June 1969 and has been certified gold. It was the lead single on Gibb's debut album Robin's Reign, released in early 1970. According to Vinyl Records, the song was co-produced by Kenny Clayton. Gibb also made a promotional video for this song. The song gained commercial success in Europe, but was a commercial failure in the US but reached #87 in their Record World charts.

"Boom Bang-a-Bang" was the United Kingdom entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 1969. It was sung by Lulu, and was co-written by Alan Moorhouse and Peter Warne (the latter also known as Michael Julien). It was the joint winner with three other entries. These entries were Salomé singing "Vivo cantando" for Spain, Lenny Kuhr singing "De troubadour" for the Netherlands and Frida Boccara singing "Un jour, un enfant" for France.

"The Ballad of John and Yoko" is a song written by John Lennon, attributed to Lennon–McCartney as was the custom, and released by The Beatles as a single in May 1969. The song, chronicling the events surrounding Lennon’s marriage to Yoko Ono, was the Beatles’ 17th and final UK number one single. The song was recorded without George Harrison (who was on holiday) and Ringo Starr (who was filming The Magic Christian).

Paul played on drums with Ringo away, and is considered by some to be the best drumming recorded by The Beatles.

"Space Oddity" is a song written and performed by David Bowie and released as a music single in July 1969, just nine days before Apollo 11 landed on the moon. It is about the launch of Major Tom, a fictional astronaut. Besides its title, which alludes to the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, the introduction to the song is a barely audible instrumental build-up that is analogous to the deep bass tone in Also sprach Zarathustra that is prominently used in the film. The lyrics have also been seen to lampoon the British space programme. The record had to be re-released before it became a hit, later in the year in the UK (but not until 1973 in the US).

"Octopus's Garden" is a song by The Beatles written and sung by Ringo Starr (credited to his real name Richard Starkey) from The Beatles' 1969 album Abbey Road. George Harrison, who assisted Starr with the song, commented: "'Octopus's Garden' is Ringo's song. It's only the second song Ringo has ever written, mind you, and it's lovely." He added that the song gets very deep into your consciousness "...because it's so peaceful. I suppose Ringo is writing cosmic songs these days without even realising it." It was the last song released by the Beatles featuring Starr on lead vocals. The Beatles Recorded in 32 takes of "Octopus's Garden" at Abbey Road on April 26th 1969.

"Get Back" is a song recorded by The Beatles and written by Paul McCartney (though credited to Lennon-McCartney), originally released as a single on 11 April 1969 and credited to "The Beatles with Billy Preston." A different mix of the song later became the closing track of Let It Be (1970), which was the Beatles' last album released just after the group split. The single version was later issued on the compilation albums 1967–1970, 20 Greatest Hits, Past Masters, and 1. The single reached number one in the United Kingdom, the United States, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, France, West Germany, and Mexico. It was the Beatles' only single that credited another artist at their request. "Get Back" was the Beatles' first single release in true stereo in the US. In the UK, the Beatles' singles remained monaural until the following release, "The Ballad of John and Yoko".

On May 5th 1969, The Beatles single 'Get Back' was released in the US. John Lennon claimed in 1980 that "there's some underlying thing about Yoko in there", claiming that Paul McCartney looked at Yoko Ono in the studio every time he sang "Get back to where you once belonged."
