23 Let It Be - The Beatles
24 Sugar, Sugar - The Archies

25 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!

26 Bad Moon Rising - CCR
27 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!

28 Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows - Lesley Gore
29 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles
30 Theme from "A Summer Place" - Percy Faith
31 The House of the Rising Sun - The Animals

This should be in the top 20. It's creative, well paced, and never fails to get people moving along. The Animals are underrated... - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

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

32 White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane

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

33 River Deep, Mountain High - Ike & Tina Turner
34 Mr. Tambourine Man - The Byrds
35 Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison

37 Jailhouse Rock - Elvis Presley
38 Tossin' and Turnin' - Bobby Lewis
39 Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
