13 Heart Full of Soul - The Yardbirds Heart Full of Soul - The Yardbirds

Check the YT video from their Shindig! T.V. show appearance; in 1965, with the Beatles, Stones, Dylan and more headlining everywhere, the Yardbirds were absolutely the coolest guys on the planet.

14 The Letter - The Boxtops The Letter - The Boxtops
15 Badge - Cream Badge - Cream

This could easily have been a Beatles song, since it had writing input from George Harrison and even a little bit from Ringo!
