Greatest Songs of the '60s
The Top Ten
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?

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.

Absolute great rock & rhythm song

Has to be #1
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 ] Bob originally made the song that was over 10 minutes, and then the producer(s) cut it down into around 7 minutes.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
How does it feel
To be own your own
Like a rolling stone...
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.
Deserves #1. Honestly The Beatles could claim all 10 spots in this list but to keep it fair:
1. A Day In The Life - The Beatles
2. Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles
3. I Can't Get No (Satisfaction) - The Rolling Stones
4. Mr. Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan
5. Happy Together - The Turtles
6. California Dreaming - The Mamas and the Papas
7. Light My Fire - The Doors
8. Like A Rolling Stones - Bob Dylan
9. Time Of The Season - The Zombies
10. God Only Knows - The Beach Boys - lachiemc
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.
How is Hey Jude higher, this song is a better song and in my opinion it’s the greatest song of all timeV 1 Comment
Even if this song is before my time, its still a masterpiece.
The beatles said "all you need is love" morrison sai " come on baby light my fire" best songs of all time...love the doors..love you jim! Live long the lizard king!

I love the music and lyrics of this song.
My favorite marvin gaye song
Absolutely! Such a classic. - DaringXx
One of the best bands of the 60's
Easily the best song of 60's and perhaps the best pop song every recorded.
Jesus this song should be top 5 at least, not 19th.
. Recently I've been getting into the old stuf like from the 60's. I never realized I listened to 60's stuff wheni was a baby! This band was my favorite! - AnonymousChickV 3 Comments

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.
Great song, The Beatles did the best version.
The best song of all times!
The spirit of early 60s
Doesn't get any better than this.
By far, the best song of the 1960's
A classic blues rock anthem. Eric Burdon & Chas Chandler at their best!
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.
Amazing riff and very catchy vocals- there's a reason that the entire genre of heavy metal stemmed from in large part this song.
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!
Don't lie guys we all know how good the kinks are.
I Love This Song got so much power in it onlyhendrix can play guitar like that with so much heart and passion
The Best Hendrix Song - christangrant
Off the soundtrack to Now & Then (1995) - playstationfan66
Mother of George Martin, this is the second Beach Boys song on the list and still no God Only Knows!
The A-Teens covered it. - playstationfan66
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
This song deserves to be in the top 10! Really guys?
Its not the top ten. But it's a top hit!
The best Beatles song of them all
Jim Morrison at his finest
With Ray Manzareks' words: 'I played with God'
I cry almost every time I hear this. No joke. Really, I love this song (I swear on my life I'm not being sarcastic)
I want to kill you
I want to
the "superstar" song of the 1960's - MatrixGuy
Couldn't be a better guitar player!
Covered by Billy Ray Cyrus. - playstationfan66
Should be top ten. Also present day neatly refers to Trump with 3 key
funny points. 1) how Trump skipped the draft 2) how spoiled he is given millions by dad
3) when the tax man comes trump avoids it and pretends to be poor. Some other ones that are great anti Trump, anti politicians in general. A Great song in any era and upbeat energizing tune. It is on Forest Gump movie sound track with other good songs!
I love this SO much I can't believe it's number40!
Fuzzy guitar riff is sweet.
Cream was a great band!
