I have so many songs to add to the list but here's my start for today: How sweet it is (to be loved by you)- 1965

Can I get a witness - 1963. Both songs by the incredible, incredibly missed Marvin Gaye. 🙏

@WebWiseWoman  - Great choices! In A Gadda Da Vida was one of my brother's favorites. I remember it blasting from the 8-track deck in his car. Hadn't thought about that song in a while. I was mostly into folk & folk-rock, but he got me listening to hard rock, including these from my playlist -

Magic Carpet Ride (1968)

It's Never Too Late (1969)

Jupiter's Child (1969)

Rock Me (1969)

Excellent topic, @MaVolta !!!!! tysvm for thinking of this!

 

So, # 1 for me is Iron Butterfly's "In A Gadda Da Vita" (1968)! Lots of people didn't like it due to length, but for me it's still a great "stuck in traffic" song, as I can rock out and everyone enjoys the old lady in the car next to them smiling while rocking out, instead of angry at traffic Smiley Wink

 

Note: I used to listen to Metallica on the drive then realized when I walked into the office and announced I knew why Lars was so angry and everyone gave me a hug while laughing that I needed to change that out...

 

# 2 on the 60's play list is Janis and her "Kosmic Blues"; so powerful and poignant.

 

# 3 is definitely John Lennon "Come Together" especially this version which he has so much fun with his original composition, not the earlier released version.

 

I shouldn't go on as it will make the post too long, but, again, thanks for this great topic! Can't wait to read others so I can add to my play list!

Excellent topic choice @MaVolta!  I have many favorites from the 60's but I will start off with Five O'Clock world by the Vogues. (1965) Great song. Also anything by the Dave Clark Five- Glad all over (1964) is my fav by them. Also anything by the Animals, especially It's my life. (1965) We should have fun with this! 😎

To lead off, I will first qualify that The Beatles have a playlist all to themselves. (Bet many of you do too!)

 

One of my favorite songs of the early 60's that I still love toplay:

 

The Lion Sleeps Tonight - The Tokens (1961)

What songs from the 1960's are still on your playlist?

The 1960's boasts a vast array of music styles and genres throughout the decade. Many genres crossed and blurred lines, and new sub-genres or were created.

 

Throughout the 60's, we had a variety of pop, rock, Motown / R&B and soul. There were all of those tragedy songs, muscle car songs, and surf songs playing on the radio. Then came The Beatles and the British invasion. Folk music evolved into folk-rock, and Bob Dylan became one of the most influential songwriters of the decade and beyond. Folk music became a popular genre for the counterculture and protest songs (anti-war, civil rights). Folk-rock segued into psychedelic rock and songs of the drug culture. Elvis made a comeback in '68. Later in the decade, progressive rock began to merge various genres and styles, including classical music. And by the end of the decade, blues rock was moving to hard rock and heavy rock territory.

 

So much happened? What did I miss?

 

Here's an article that I found for a memory refresher.

So, what songs from the 1960's are still on your playlist today?
