Dave Brubeck and his jazz group, playing in a small jazz club in Greenwich Village, says to his guys to "Take Five". 

As this is happening, Neil Young is moving in with his "Cinnamon Girl" in a second floor flat over the jazz club.

Walking down the street, Norma Tangea is "Walking Her Cat Named Dog" cause her landlord doesn't want dogs in the building. Cats are ok.

James Brown and his troop are boarding a train in Miami. They are taking the "Night Train" up the east coast to NYC with many stops along the way.

John Sebastian is at a diner on University Place near NYU watching a coed put five spoonfuls of sugar in her coffee. He walks over towards her and asked, " "Do You Believe In Magic?" from the loving spoonful of sugar?

Phil Ochs writing "Draft Dodger Rag" on several napkins at the same diner. Did he have a premonition about a future president in the 21st century?

Simon and Garfunkel watching the Yankees lose another game. They are not the same without Joe DiMaggio. Where have you gone "Mrs. Robinson"? Our lonely eyes turn to you.

Bob Dylan went electric at Newport Rhode Island. They nearly killed him for such blasphemy. It would be another ten years before he was "Tangled Up In Blue".
