Dear Sir Paul,
Thank you for writing “When I'm Sixty-Four”.
In 1972-1973 (47 years ago) we were song leaders at Santa Monica High School, SAMOHI. We have stayed close friends all these years. “When I'm Sixty-Four” was our Pep Rally Song, which we danced to each Friday in the SAMOHI Greek Theatre. We found the band music for “When I’m Sixty-Four” at a music store in downtown Los Angeles, went to the band director and he agreed to teach this song to the high school band.
Ever since then we have planned to do something big for our 64th birthdays, which happens this year, we all turn 64 in 2019! When we heard you were coming to Southern California with your Freshen Up Tour, we decided in honor of our 64th birthdays we would attend the Freshen Up Concert at Petco Park in San Diego on June 22. We were hoping you would play "When I'm Sixty-Four ". If not, we wanted to let you know how special you and this song have always been to us, thank you for writing such great music.
With Sincere Appreciation,
The SAMOHI 1972-1973 Songs
Jackie, Patty, Liane, Margie, Wendy and Sally
