This was Sooooo hard!!! I love almost all of the nominated songs and there are probably hundreds (no exaggeration) of other songs that were not nominated that would not have been out of place on this list.

1. Venus - Shocking Blue

2. California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas

3. Fortunate Son - C.C.R. (This isn't even my favourite song by this group, but I thought it was so representative of the political atmosphere of the late 1960's).

4. In My Life - The Beatles

5. Get Together - The Youngbloods

6. Mrs. Robinson - Simon & Garfunkel

7. Somebody To Love - Jefferson Airplane

8. Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys

9. Crimson & Clover - Tommy James & The Shondells

10. Yesterday - The Beatles
