    Well this is pretty simple for me. depending on what mood I'm in, there are two songs vying for the No. 1 spot.
    Castells -I Do (Brian Wilson produced and wrote it)
    Beach Boys- Wouldn't it be nice

    I love iconic 60's songs like "Wild Thing", "Summer In The City" and "Pushin' Too Hard" but the number one 60's song to me is... "Purple Haze". Because when you hear that song, you think of Jimi, but you also think of the summer of love, the San Francisco bands, and 60's music in general. Sort of like "Stairway To Heaven" was (and may still be) the 70's perennial #1 song. Songs like that represent an era.

    The 60's music is something very special and means a lot to me in all it's glory. It was a bit easier to dig the latest new and popular stuff despite it was hard to get them as soon as they was released because we had to wait for the flaming bananaboat to come in. The 60's music reminds me of good looking girls, milkshake bars, some weird flower power clothing:oyea: and in a age of 15 sneaking in at the backdoor to the local discothèque and have a a beer or two and this and that. Well, before I'm writing a whole flaming novel, a tiny list of some corny hits:

    Hey Jude/The Beatles
    All My Loving/The Beatles
    Twist And Shout/The Beatles
    Tell Me (You'r comming Back) /The Rolling Stones
    She's A Rainbow/The Rolling Stones
    (I Can't Get No)Satisfaction/The Rolling Stones
    As Tears Go By/The Rolling Stones
    Hey Joe/Jimi Hendrix
    Purple Haze/Jimi Hendrix
    Fortunate Son/Credence Clearwater Revival
    Bad Moon Rising/Credence Clearwater Revival
    World/Bee Gees
    Spicks And Specks/Bee Gees
    Massachusetts/Bee Gees
    Here Comes The Night/Them
    How Long Baby/Them
    You'll Never Walk Alone/Gerry and The Pacemakers
    Ferry Cross The Mersey/Gerry and The Pacemakers
    One Night Of Sin/Elvis Presley (1957)
    Love Me Tender/Elvis Presley
    Last Night In Soho/Dave,Dee,Dozy,Mick & Tich
    Don Juan/Dave,Dee,Dozy,Mick & Tich
    No Milk Today/Herman's Hermits
    Atlantis/Donovan
    Baby Come Back/The Equals

    Love this tune. The "Little Green Bag" that many of us thought of as a "weed bag" was actually written as greenback (as in money). They changed the title because the misinterpretation was better... or at least more "cool" for the period.

    I'd have to go with songs that capture the spirit of the times.

    For What It's Worth--Buffalo Springfield.
    Ohio-CSNY
    We Can Be Together - Jefferson Airplane. I love the part that says "We are forces of chaos and anarchy. Everything they say we are we are. And we are very Proud of ourselves".

    The golden age of terrorism - CNN.com

    People forget that people were seriously thinking of Revolution. For real.
    It was no offhand thing that the Beatles did Revolution. The number of revolutionary groups that were active is forgotten. Bombings and stuff. For real. The level of terrorism in the US hit an all time high in the 70's. And it was launched in the 60's.
