I was a Jr. in High School–we loved it, learned all the words and sang it often–I can still hear it in my head!

I was in Grade Six and listening to Canadian Forces Network radio on a base in North Eastern France.

Uh, I don’t remember where I was when I first heard it. But when it first came out, I think I was in my mother’s womb. :)

Early 1966 would mean 1st grade. I don’t know if I ever heard it at the time. I remember it from college many years later when a roommate sang it all the time – particularly when thinking about one boy she had a serious problem with.

I don’t recall ever hearing the original – but what I do recall the wonderful, incredible re-recording of the song that Jessica Simpson did for the Dukes Of Hazzard movie.

I was in 1st grade. I remember my two older sisters singing it. I think we may have had the 45. What’s interesting is her boots are back in style.

Probably riding my bicycle in my hometown of Davis CA. Or else watching Nancy on the Ed Sullivan show. Later I would go away to college and my roommate would be the son of the Nancy’s producer – a very flaky fellow who can be seen here –
Apparently still about as flaky as then.

Kris and I were in 6th grade … at different grade schools. But we knew one another by then.

I was thinking that Austin Powers was going to get in a lot of trouble with his new girlfriend, Vanessa, when she found him with all those fembots. However, it turned out he was able to explain himself and she forgave him.

I was in 6th grade and some of the girls were wearing white go-go boots to school.

There clearly have been serious deficiencies in your cultural education. :-)

In my parents’ living room as a kindergartener, dancing around listening to it on WEEU radio in Reading, Pa.

I was 8, so I was in 2nd grade, living in the little burg of Mount Shasta, in Northern California. And no, I didn’t ask my mom for a pair of the boots.

I was popping Jiffy Pop popcorn on the stovetop in my pajamas.
