My Life's Soundtrack Part 16 - Mr Tambourine Man by The Byrds

When this song was topping the charts, a 5-year old girl rode her tricycle across Harvard Avenue, right in the path of a city bus. She was killed instantly, while I watched from my bedroom window. The song haunted me for years. It seemed that every time I heard it all the way through, something terrible would happen. Weird, eh?


  1. I remember that incident oh so well, and Yes it did seem that whenever that song played on the radio that something would happen on or near that same spot on Harvard Avenue. Very freaky Eh.

  2. But let me know if I'm wrong, I really thought it was Green Tambourine by the Lemon Pipers.

  3. Nope. It was this song. I get it confused sometimes with Turn Turn Turn.
