Here's another one of my favorites, Roger Miller's "King of the Road".
It's alway high on my list of favorite songs. In fact, side one of Yellow Submarine is all great stuff.
Aerozep3207, you're kind of a jerk for starting this thread. Just sayin'.
Please know that I kid....................or do I?
I don't even know where to start. This is like picking my favorite pepperoni from a pizza with double pepperoni! Of course, like pepperoni, some songs go better with shrooms. Especially songs from the 60s.
Stepcousin gave a great suggestion with Bulldog and Lord Grendel....damn him....had two more great examples with Good Vibrations and King of the Road (it makes me think of my dad...damn LG again), but I have some serious commitment issue when it comes to this topic! There's a whole bunch of dance floor, but there are too many people dancing on it!
I'm gonna have to get back with you.
I almost wrote "Only A Northern Song".
Ah, man, I dunno... The 60's... I guess I'll have to go with I Me Mine... Though it's probably gonna change in the next five minutes.

I'm not deeply familiar with the 60s, I listen to only few of bands from this period. Mostly the tracks are only those very popular. However I want to give the #1 spot to Hungarian band Omega, their song "Gyonghaju Lany" from 1969 is in my opinion an underrated masterpiece of the 60s.
impossible to pick just one!
Dear Prudence, In My Life, Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles
The Weight - The Band
Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix Experience
Dazed And Confused - Led Zeppelin
Heroin - The Velvet Underground
Don't Think Twice It's Alright, Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again - Bob Dylan
Suite: Judy Blue Eyes - Crosby, Stills & Nash
See Emily Play - Pink Floyd
Mrs Robinson - Simon & Garfunkel
For some reason, THE song I've always personally associated with the '60's was "Turn! Turn! Turn!" by The Byrds. "Purple Haze" would be the other. Picking one song would be an excercise in futility. So damn many...
