Top Tens by Decade - The 1960s

Recommended Posts

Finally we return with our voyage through the decades.

This time with the second part:

The 1960s

where British Invasion meets Motown

and Political Folk meets Psychadelic Rock

[spoilerq:1]You all know the rules, I'm sure[/spoilerq] :shades:

[spoilera:1]You mean you don't? :P

Well, okay, it's like this: you have to nominate 2 (two) songs from the specific decade (in this case the 1960s ;) )

after nominating closes, chose your Top Ten of all nominations

and let us worry about the rest ;)[/spoilera]

so, are you ready?

.

really?

..

are you sure?

...

alright:

NOMINATE AWAY NOW!!

:headphones:

since my nominations will have next to no chance anyway, might as well give them now:

Have Love, Will Travel ~ The Sonics (1965) listen

strangely this band wasn't even nominated yet in the normal TTs...

and (some of) you're worried we don't have anything left :rolleyes:;)

Pata Pata ~ Miriam Makeba (1967) listen

Sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata pat (pata pata)

Sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata pat (pata pata)

Sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata pat (pata pata)

Sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata (pata pata)

Hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pata (pata pata)

Hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pa (pata pata)

A-hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pata pat (pata pata)

A-hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pat (pata pata)

Crimson and Clover - Tommy James and the Shondells

Get Together - The Youngbloods

I've always been a fan of the late-60s, peace & love hippie music. Something about it is very spiritual.

"In My Life" - The Beatles (1965) IMO their finest song, beautiful, melodic and heartbreaking. It doesn't waste a single note, second or word. The first line Lennon sings always gets me: "There are places I'll remember all my life, though some have changed..."

"Like A Rolling Stone" - Bob Dylan (1965) Possibly Dylan's greatest lyrical accomplishment, a scathing indictment of a slumming rich girl matched with a great rhythm and excellent organ riffs.

This is going to be the hardrest task... :laughing: :laughing:

Mrs Robinson- Simon and Garfunkel

Somebody To Love - Jefferson Airplane

I am going to vote higher for other noms than mine.

This song will always be my #1...

Please, I need some youtubage... :cool:

Well, not really... I think everybody knows my noms...

It seems that if we want a true reading of "the best" songs of the decades, that thought shouldn't even enter your mind.

"In My LIfe", "Venus", "Homeward Bound", "Sitting on the dock of the bay", "Like a Rolling Stone", "California Dreamin'"... hard to top them... :shades:

I was going to nominate "She Loves You" - Beatles... which would have made things still harder... :cool:

Since this is a near impossible task, I will go with the two bands that started it for me. However, I'll move ahead to the psychedelic world:

And Your Bird Can Sing - The Beatles

Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys

(I'm having Youtube sound problems, please check to make sure these work..thanks)

Hard to top any of these songs. I don't care what anyone young or old says about the '60's, and many were before my time, but these are withuot a doubt some of the best songs ever written & recorded. If someone said I could only listen to '60's classics the rest of my life I'd be happy, the rest of my life.

* Your youtubes work just fine Ron. * :)
