Greatest Songs of the '60s

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Bad Moon Rising - CCR
22You Really Got Me - The Kinks

AWESOME! It's heavy guitar sound was revolutionary, infulencing heavy metal bands of the 70's like Black Sabbath. The Kinks along with The Beatles, Rolling Stones and The Who were the most infulence British bands of the 1960's. Ray Davies Rules!

23Wouldn't it Be Nice - The Beach Boys

Mother of George Martin, this is the second Beach Boys song on the list and still no God Only Knows!

24Can't Get No (Satisfaction) - The Rolling Stones
25Theme From "A Summer Place" - Percy Faith
26While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles
27River Deep, Mountain High - Ike & Tina Turner
28White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane

Love Grace Slick's voice and the song is so haunting. It used to scare me when I was a little girl. It's the best song about drugs - Lizzthaashizz

defined what the decade was all about, DRUGS! - tupacman42

It's not about LSD it's about Alice in wonderland
By the way I'm 12 and think it is strange to be scerd of it

29Mr. Tambourine Man - The Byrds
30Happy Together - The Turtles

This song deserves to be in the top 10! Really guys?

31Tossin' And Turnin' - Bobby Lewis
32The Sounds of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

THE best harmonies humanity has ever produced.

I love to listen to Simon & Garfunkel I think they are great

33House of the Rising Sun - The Animals

A classic blues rock anthem. Eric Burdon & Chas Chandler at their best!

This should be in the top 20. It's creative, well paced, and never fails to get people moving along. The Animals are underrated... - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

34Piece of My Heart - Janis Joplin
35Fun Fun Fun - Beach Boys
36Somebody to Love - Jefferson Airplane
37Can't Help Falling In Love - Elvis Presley

The A-Teens covered it. - playstationfan66

38I Heard It Through the Grapevine - Marvin Gaye
39Baba O'Riley - The Who

One of the best R&R songs and from the best album ever. The song itself as well as the album uses instruments in a great combination of sound. Satisfaction in this record is very high. This is my opinion only which of course will vary.

40Substitute - The Who
