Greatest Songs of the '60s
The Top TenXW
The Best Theme Song of the perennial James Bond Series. A famous veteran who actually recorded a James Bond Theme herself said that no one can top Shirley when it comes to a Bond song. Bassey is the only vocalists who has recorded more than one. (Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, and Moonraker)
The Best James Bond Theme of them all! Besides being such a unique song that has interested people of all generations for all these years, it's Shirley Bassey's powerful vocal ability that still brings the song to life! Others have attempted this song, but Bassey's renditions, both studio and LIVE, are still the best! - Scot90230
The Very Best of the James Bond Songs, ever! Tina Turner once said that you can't top Shirley when it comes to a Bond song.

A landmark Beatles song, and since it is the best song by the best band it should be no. 1. Satisfaction, Like a rolling stone, Good Vibrations and Respect are all-time classics of the highest quality, but they still can't compare with this song.
My version of this list is The same of my top 10 Beatles songs with Pinball Wizard and Good Times Bad Times- which I'm not sure if it was in sixties but I was born in 2001 so cut slack. Hey Jude, Something and Across The Universe should top the list.
You got to be kidding me. How come this is not the number one?
1 Beatles song in the top ten? the stones 3?
your scoring sucks
Bob Dylan was and is a great poet and one of the best singer/songwriters to ever live. "Like a Rolling Stone" was on the top of the charts when it came out, and it should be at the top of this list, honestly. [In my opinion. ] Bob originally made the song that was over 10 minutes, and then the producer(s) cut it down into around 7 minutes. When you can write a song that ISN'T repetitive, over 10 minutes... That's when you know you're a great poet and song writer. Bob should be at the top of this list with no doubt.
YES! There is a list on this site that gives dylan some respect. This song changed the world not just music any music that came after this was affected by this.
Greatest recording of the 60's
Lyrics and influence are beyond imagination.
Dylan is the master of the new wave in the 60's before Beatles

Best example of The Stones at their best. Opening guitar rift blows you away.
Already covered by Play (which was off their 2004 album, Don't Stop the Music). - playstationfan66V1 Comment
The demo version is amazing
I love country music and that song is one of my top favorites! I performed it on my school and everyone said it was very nice.
A Day in the Life tells a story. A one with Deeper meaning. The John Lennon parts are a dream while Paul's part is the waked state. Or the other way around? Its up to you that's what is so great about A Day In the Life, the song that defined the 60's from the band that defined the 60's.
Not actually the best song of the sixties, but I'm fairly certain I enjoy it more than any other song I've seen on this list. I'm glad it seems the Beatles are well represented.
I'm a little surprised that this is above "God Only Knows."
Jesus this song should be top 5 at least, not 19th.V2 Comments
This is it. Ultimate song of rebellion.
Doesn't get any better than this.
By far, the best song of the 1960's
It's the song that started the British Invasion as far as I'm concerned. I was laying in bed listening to KNOX back before. I'm in NC and it was the only station I could pick up late at night. I thought it was the greatest sound I had ever heard.
The best song ever, I gues one of my favorite songs of the beatles.. Who cares the lyrics its amazing and wonderful to describe how lovely is this song.
Maybe my favorite all time Beatles song!
The genius John Lennon wrote this beautiful song, transmiting the messege that of all the people, place and things he had loved, nothing compares to you.V1 Comment
