50 Years Of MyTunes: 1966

Ann Althouse and I agree that 1966 was the best year on record for pop music. Yay! Link

My truncated list for the best of '66:

Rain ~ The Beatles
For What It's Worth ~ The Buffalo Springfield
Eight Miles High ~ The Byrds
Psychotic Reaction ~ Count Five
Good Lovin' ~ Young Rascals
Hey Joe ~ The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Reach Out, I'll Be There ~ The Four Tops
Gimme Some Lovin' ~ The Spencer Davis Group
Ain't Too Proud To Beg ~ The Temptations
Paint It Black ~ The Rolling Stones
You Can't Hurry Love ~ The Supremes
Wild Thing ~ The Troggs
When A Man Loves A Woman ~ Percy Sledge
Summer In The City ~ The Lovin' Spoonful
Sunshine Superman ~ Donovan
Shapes Of Things ~ The Yardbirds

Should there even be a vote?

  1. Sorry to be AWOL but I'm catching up. Though I'm loathe to agree with the blogger lady, I'll agree that 1966 was quite a year for pop music. I'm surprised by how many of these songs still sound modern to my ears but maybe I'm just stuck in a time warp. I'd pick The Beatles' Rain as my favorite but then I'll always choose The Beatles over everyone else. Nice to see Donovan on the list. And some soul. Really, you can't go wrong with any of them, can you?
