Best Bands of the 60s


The Contenders: Page 5

81 The Searchers

Before the Byrds there were the Searchers. Needles and Pins, When You Walk into the Room, Don't Throw You're Love Away and What Have They Done to the Rain are some of the most beautifully underrated songs of the decade.

Early 60s English soft beat group from England but Doub't they had any influence on the Byrds phychedelic sound of the mid 60's..
