A more general interpretation, but its the first song (second one in the video, but the first applies too) that came to mind.

Senior Year finals are over. Put your speakers in the window of your dorm room and crank it up!

Ahhhh, 1969, the year that I learned the freedom to question things. Here's that feeling in one song. And some awesome jazz musicians to boot.
