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 Most Iconic 60s Songs
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. - truckturner
