Re: 60s music

Welcome! I know it's a holiday weekend, but it's been pretty slow here.

Now, lest my opening post should give the impression that the decade's music began with the Beatles...here's a fun look at what the reigning sovereign was up to around the Kennedy era:

Re: 60s music

This New Jersey band nailed the Beatles' sound to a tee, right down to the lead vocal sounding just like John Lennon!

Re: 60s music

One of the first songs I ever heard after getting an AM radio in 1962, an early hit for Ray Stevens.

Re: 60s music

Now this is the iconic Dylan video that I'd wanted to include in the original post...don't suppose there's a way to embed from that site...?

Too bad this clip isn't in color:



I was used to Superman being referenced in song in my lifetime...but when I first heard this song on an oldies station in the 80s, it blew my mind that Green Lantern was being referenced alongside him:



And just give me half an excuse to post this is these parts:

One of the greatest vocal interpreters of the decade:

Re: 60s music

I have a special connection to this fuzzy piece of cheese...it was the #1 song in the country the week that I was born:



My sister got a somewhat cooler birthday song--#401 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time:



Of course, if Mom had gone into labor as little as 5 days sooner, I could have had #91:
