Greatest Songs of the '60s

The Contenders: Page 2

21 I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beatles

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.

22 California Dreamin - The Mamas and the Papas

Doesn't get any better than this.

27 Wouldn'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!

28 Bad Moon Rising - CCR
29 You Really Got Me - The Kinks

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!

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

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
