My Favorite Songs of the 1960s

Posted: September 3, 2012 in Rankings

While the year-by-year rankings are not in a specific, numerical order, I decided to do the decade summary differently. Taking all songs rated “awesome” in the year-by-year, I then put them in order of the ones I enjoy the most. Naturally, how I feel right now is a lot different from how I feel lying in a hammock on the deck drinking a beer – I’m sure the order of songs would be quite different. But generally speaking, here are 50 good songs from the 1960s. I can’t wait to get back into this and go through the 70s. As a big music buff, time permitting, I can do this all the way through to the present.
