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

Two classic songs from the 1960’s come to mind that make me smile every time I hear them.  The first one “Save the Last Dance for Me” makes me think of my husband who had absolutely no rhythm although he never hesitated to get out on the dance floor. I finally suggested that we take Ballroom Dancing. We had so much fun and he actually made some progress, but whenever we were at a venue where others were dancing, he’d resort to his usual stomping like a farmer trying to put out a grass fire. The other song that reminds me of him is ”Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” that we frequently sang as a duet, especially in the car, and to the top of our lungs. My sweet husband loved, loved, loved to sing, but he couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket. Sadly, he passed away prematurely at age 55. I miss my dancing partner and songbird, but I also know that he would say to me: "Don't cry because it's overSmile because it (we) happened."  -- Dr. Seuss

Like some the songs on your list but we didn't listen to much country, although we did love Roger Miller.  But big kudos to your shout out to Tom Lehrer!  He was a staple in our album-playing in the 60s.  Too bad not many people know him (or would appreciate him).

Both Sides Now: A very good choice: Judy Collins had (has) the perfect voice for that song.

Like some songs on your list (my family did not listen to country music but we loved Roger Miller) but great kudos go to your shout out of Tom Lehrer!  He was a staple in our album playing throughout the 60's and beyond. Too bad not may people know about him (or would appreciate him).

You're right MaVolta - the Beatles have their own playlist as do the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson.

I was and am a huge fan of Elvis.  My absolute favorite is "Welcome to My World.". Also on my daily list are

"Suspicious Minds" and "How Great Thou Art.". Unbelievably, his only Grammys were for gospel.  I believe Elvis was recognized for "Are You Lonesome Tonight" this year.  I feel he was and is the greatest singer of all time.  I watch the Hallmark movies made at Graceland, but they can't hold a candle to him even though Priscilla makes a cameo appearance.

 

I also listen daily to the Beatles, especially "Yesterday" and love the history as Paul McCartney tells it.

 

Also listen daily to Neil Diamond, Aretha Franklin as well as the Beach Boys.

 

What a great time to grow up.  The kids today should have been so blessed.

My four favorites - all from my college years are: Hey Jude (Beatles), Both Sides Now (Judy Collins), Sitting on the Dock of the Bay (Otis Redding), and Sweet Caroline (Neil Diamond). Terrific memories.
