Oops. Just saw I could have 20. 

I might reserve the last six for more consideration

A friend recently challenged me to do this; I was allowed twenty tracks but every track had to be by a different group or artist.

Here is what I came up with:

Cathy's Clown (The Everly Brothers)
Needles & Pins (The Searchers)
Bits & Pieces (The Dave Clark 5)
You Really Got Me (The Kinks)
Oh Pretty Woman (Roy Orbison)
Down Town (Petula Clark)
All I Really Want To Do (The Byrds)
Look Through Any Window (The Hollies)
California Dreaming (The Mamas & The Papas)
Paint It Black (The Rolling Stones)
No Milk Today (Herman's Hermits)
Summer In The City (The Lovin' Spoonful)
God Only Knows (The Beach Boys)
Pleasant Valley Sunday (The Monkees)
Georgy Girl (The Seekers)
Ha! Ha! Said The Clown (Manfred Mann)
I Am A Rock (Simon & Garfunkel)
Aquarius (The Fifth Dimension)
Light Flight (Pentangle)
Leaving On A Jet Plane (Peter, Paul & Mary)

He was taken aback that there was no Dylan or Hendrix, nor even so much as a smattering of Tamla Motown. Led Zeppelin, The Who and Elvis all failed to appear. But I wasn't trying to assemble a decade defining list - just sixties songs which, from a mixture of nostalgia and pure pleasure I could happily listen to over and over again. I did apply some brakes to the tide of childhood sentimentality; so Ronnie Hilton's "Windmill In Old Amsterdam", despite its ingrained treasure trove of carefree singalong memories at my mother's knee, failed to make the cut.

Most of them were big hit singles - and with good reason.

What would have to feature on your version?

Always up there among my favourite Paul albums. Absolutely love "My Brave Face" with it's fresh, early Beatles vibe including spangly guitars and that descending "Take me to that place" so reminiscent of John and "There's A Place". The promo film even included early footage of the fabs of course.

Several little gems followed, personal favourites including "Put It There", "This One" and "We Got Married". A hallmark of the album was Paul's pleasing return to melody after the basically tuneless mantrap that was (can hardly bear to type it) "Press To Play".

Ending the 80s on a high.

Just finished `Incendies' (2010)

Wow!  :'(
This is must see for everyone!

Looks interesting.  I'll check it out.

My wife, daughter, and I went and saw The Shack.  Wife read the book and wanted to see it.  Guy takes his kids on a camping trip and the youngest daughter is kidnapped and murdered.  Guy gets a note in his mailbox some time later telling him to go to the Shack where the murder occurred.  He goes and ends up spending the weekend with God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit.  I cried like a little baby to the point that I was embarrassed.  Lol.

I do this all the time. Often someone will point out something in the song like an instrumental bit that I hadn't paid attention to. Or how the words fit with the music at a certain point.  So I relisten  and it changes the song for me.

Another thing is when you hear a song you sort of know in a movie soundtrack. It forces you to pay attention to it. That happened with Lennon's Bring on the Lucie at the end of Children of Men.

It also happened with Paul's New that popped up in a kids film I was watching with my children.
It had passed me by a bit but I quite liked it after hearing it in that context.

I bought Pete's book a few years ago. Like a lot of other books it made it upstairs to my book shelf where it was promptly forgotten. I think I did look at the pictures though.  roll:)

Pete's book is great. You should read it. He really knew Lennon.

This was well reported here in France.

It gives the impression that if you oppose Poutin and they can't kill you they put you in prison!
