No one told me this was going to happen! It's really coming down.

I'd rather stay out of this particular discussion except to say that very few, if any, issues are black and white.

I respect your decision. And I don't think this issue is black and white either. I just think there are two bad and unfair extremes: savage capitalism and communism. In the former system freedom is privileged over equality; and the opposite happens in the latter system. I'd like a moderate capitalism where anyone can progress with his/her own effort but without trespassing an absurd limit. And I don't believe in giving the same to everyone, but I do believe in promoting the equality of opportunities, or at least reducing the disadvantages that many people suffer due to their unfortunate origin. A starting point would be considering that education and health are rights and not privileges.

Sorry I nicked Georgy Girl and Downtown but I loved them and I would have been short without them!

I'm going to take a nostalgic approach, too. The first 11 songs are from my collection of 45's. I was too young to buy records until about 1971 but I remember playing these on the little record player I got for my 5th birthday in 1968. Somehow these left the older kids' collections and took up residency with my Disneyland records. The rest are songs that I remember hearing on the radio at the time they were popular and that I liked.

In no particular order...

1. Let's Spend the Night Together/Ruby Tuesday-The Rolling Stones (I know, I know but it's a double A side.)

2. All Day and All of the Night - The Kinks (The first record my brother ever bought.)

3. Washington Square - The Village Stompers

4. Party Doll - The Hullaballoos

5. Born to be Wild - Steppenwolf

6. Blowin' in the Wind - Peter, Paul and Mary (When my sister bought this the guy that owned the record store called it "Baloney in the Wind". She was not amused.)

7. Thank the Lord for the Night Time - Neil Diamond

8. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly

9. Love is Blue - Paul Mauriat

10. Light My Fire - The Doors

11. True Love Ways - Peter and Gordon

12. Windy - The Association

13. Georgy Girl - The Seekers

14. Downtown - Petula Clark

15. Happy Together - The Turtles

16. Hanky Panky - Tommy James and the Shondells

17. Winchester Cathedral - The New Vaudeville Band

18. The House of the Rising Sun -  The Animals

19. Mr. Tambourine Man - The Byrds

20. Mr. Bassman - Johnny Cymbal (I don't remember it on the radio and I don't have the record but it gets an honorable mention. My brother used to play it just to hear me scream, until my dad broke it over his head. And I remember.)

I'd like to know your opinion whether I agree with you or not. In fact, I tend to learn from different opinions than mine. But if you don't feel comfortable doing that, I don't want you to feel forced.

Just to clarify Mr.M, are we just making a list of songs we like or a list that is somewhat more representative of the era and one that would be more acceptable to the listening public?  I guess what i'm saying is, are we trying to leave out the more obscure and going with a more radio friendly theme?

Entirely up to you tkitna.

I myself went down the "personal favourites" route. A "decade definitive/representative of the era" list would have been very different had I decided to take that option - I would have certainly included Dylan, Motown etc etc

Loving all the lists you guys are generating; some great stuff so far, keep it up! :)

I've taken a more nostalgic approach then trying to pick a 60s best of. I can now add to my initial 14. I''m also avoiding nicking from others lists so I've left off It's Gonna Be Alright by Gerry and the Pacemakers and Look Through Any Window by The Hollies. It's Gonna Be Alright was pretty much the only GatP song I liked to any great degree. Luckily there's a few Hollies ones I remember fondly

Funny How Love Can Be - The Ivy League
Arnold Layne - The Pink Floyd
Sorry Suzanne  - The Hollies

I have three more spots to use wisely!
