I was just a little shit during the 1960s but have listened to mostly music from that era since I can remember.
The Doors
had been popular almost 10 years when I discovered them in what would have been 1975ish have loved the band ever since. Then there is Jimi Hendrix,
I’ve been listening to both Hendrix and The Doors for over forty years and I’m still not tired of it. Whenever one of their tunes comes on a radio station, I always CRANK IT and am astonished that in a fifty years+ and countless technological advances in music making equipment, few have figured out a way to do it as well and none better.

If I lived to be 100 and this tune
comes on the radio I’d pull aside my O2 mask and scream at the unfortunate soul tasked with changing my bed pan to TURN IT UP!!!!

Fogarty and Creedence kicked butt with many songs. Their take of Heard it Through the Grapevine was classic.

I dunno...when I pull up the list of the songs of the summer of 1966, I have to say there are some that I still play today..Supremes, Johnny River, Lovin Spoonful, the Beatles and the Rollin Stones, Association, Rightous Brothers, Four Tops and on and on..

The We Five...You Were on my Mind was another 45 I wore out..

Some of these are early 70's..but all the same era

Lots of good stuff from my teens for sure...
And we listened to them on a crappy AM radio.

Most of these are before my time. My time had Boston, Skynyrd, Seger, AC/DC, Styx.

Some of the old song videos are funny to watch now.

I was just a few years old late 60s but grew up listening to a ton of Beatles and the Brit invasion rock via my father....must say so many many awesome tunes mentioned so far but one of my all time favorites is this. Just a great decade for music and still listen to just about everything mentioned in this post, awesome stuff. I love pulling up youtube for 70s stuff as well, just great footage.

Wow great memories. My fav's...any Beach Boys. My first album I bought was Little Deuce Coupe, first concert, Beach Boys Music Hall in Boston. Second, House of the Rising Sun. Best "slow dance" song. When you finally get the nerve to ask HER to dance!
