Editor’s Note: I feel like I may say this everytime, but this one was tougher than I thought it would be. I forget how much the music of the 60’s shaped me as a young girl, and just how much I lived in my mother’s record collection. I could have gone to 100 songs, but in respect to space and my reader’s time, I narrowed it down to 40.
