Most Iconic 60s SongsA much tougher list to compile, I've found. I've left out a LOT of great songs you're welcome to add yourselves. For starters, I tried to limit things to one song per artist, or else this would be full of Beatles, Creedence, and Beach Boys songs.
The Top Ten
There's a reason why this 1969 classic features as the theme song to "The Wonder Years". It's THE song of the late 60s. The Beatles version just doesn't compare.
I will say you are one of the few people who prefer this version.
I personally prefer "Proud Mary", but this is by far the more iconic Creedence song of the late 60s.
My favourite Beatles song, I'll openly confess to bias here. Feel free to add others if you feel they're more iconic.
I love this song! It's probably my favorite from them, too!
Very awesome song.
It’s a very relaxing song with a great melody.
The film is set in 1959, the song was released in 1961-2, oddly enough.
This one takes me back to the 60s in an instant...and I was born in 1980.
This had to be here, even if it's not a personal favourite of mine particularly. Some might even rank it #1.
It's The Beach Boys. It's Pet Sounds. It's the late 60s. It's poetry set to music.
From the era that gave you The Beatles, The Kinks, The Byrds, etc. Beautiful song.
Stunningly beautiful, haunting song.
One of my favourite Beatles songs, underrated album too.
This song is PURE POP.
I struggled to find room for this on the list, so I'm glad someone added it even if it's probably my fourth or fifth favourite Doors song.
Any 60s Stones song probably deserves a mention, I settled on this one.
Oh yes, this is my fave Beatles song!
Glad someone added this, deserves to be a bit higher for sure.
Great, iconic rock song.
