"On July 1, 1969 Denmark became the first country worldwide to legalize pornography for adults. This was called the "Danish experiment" for a while." --Sholem Stein


"I did have a good time at Wild in the Streets, which is more than I can say for Petulia or 2001 or a lot of other highly praised pictures. Wild in the Streets is not a work of art, but then I don’t think Petulia or 2001 is either, though Petulia has that kaleidoscopic hip look and 2001 that new-techniques look which combined with “swinging” or “serious” ideas often pass for modern picture art."--"Trash, Art, and the Movies" (1969) by Pauline Kael

Music

  • Versions in reggae
    • Around 1969 Kingston-based reggae producers started to issue singles with instrumental "versions" on the flipside of vocal releases, which were actually the basic riddim tracks. To these "versions" one could add further instrumentation or deejay accompaniment. Within a year the inclusion of instrumental versions on the flipside was common practice among the majority of Jamaica's producers.
  • Kool & The Gang
    • In 1969, on the basis of their tight live act, they were signed by Gene Redd's then-new De-Lite Records, and their first record, a funky instrumental called "Kool and The Gang," became a substantial hit.
  • Debuts: The Stooges
    • Everything the peace and love vibe of the '60s wasn't the Stooges 1969 debut record was: dangerous, violent, chaotic, mean-spirited, and sex crazed. Iggy Pop's monotone birthday lament, "1969" ("War across the U.S.A. / Another year for me and you / Another year with nothing to do"), pretty much sums up the band's coldly disaffected outlook. --Percy Keegan
