Greatest Songs of the '60s
The Top Ten
#1 Hey Jude
#2 I Can't Get No Satisfaction
#3 House Of The Rising Sun
#4 Sound Of Silence
#5 Light My Fire
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!
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 SONG WITH FEELINGS
Absolute great rock & rhythm song
Good song great beat satisfies me
Britney Spears covered it
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 ] Bob originally made the song that was over 10 minutes, and then the producer(s) cut it down into around 7 minutes.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
I love this song! It has a good message
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
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.
One of my favorites from The Beatles!
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!
Innovative song for its time
It was one of the best!
Oh my gosh. The best. My life's heart-beat.
No one could do what Jimi Hendrix did with a guitar in the 1960s
Good cover of a Dylan song
Not only the best 60s song, the best song ever!
This define 60's classic rock music
Yes. This deserves to be in the top 10.
Best Stones song ever. Guitars are totally awesome and the music is absolutely right. Saw them do it live and it was even better than the record.
Love it so so so so much you must vote for this song or else because it's the best song of the 60s so vote for it please love it so much should be number 1 or else the best 60s song ever number 1 in the 60s
Best example of The Stones at their best. Opening guitar rift blows you away.
So good it's almost beyond human comprehension.
THE best harmonies humanity has ever produced.
I love to listen to Simon & Garfunkel I think they are great
Hello darkness my old friend...
It’s kinda weird to be honest, but I still like it.
Already covered by Play (which was off their 2004 album, Don't Stop the Music).
My favorite marvin gaye song
I love the music and lyrics of this song.
Fantastic Song, doesn't sound like a 60's song, a bit ahead of its time, and there are not enough popular songs with science fiction themes out there
Absolutely! Such a classic.
This is great music.
Probably my favorite Beatles song from "The Wall" album. Mick Jagger's vocals were great in this.
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.
This is it. Ultimate song of rebellion.
Truly a great song.
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.
Doesn't get any better than this.
By far, the best song of the 1960's
Great song, The Beatles did the best version.
The spirit of early 60s
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!
Brings tears to he eyes
To my wife of 50 years says everything
A classic blues rock anthem. Eric Burdon & Chas Chandler at their best!
#23, are you kidding me? One of the top five songs ever recorded...a true classic.
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 A-Teens covered it.
