Most Popular Song Each Month in the 60s
- Publicado el 25 ago 2021
- In this video, you'll see the most popular songs throughout each month in the 60s. The tunes selected for this video are the ones that reached #1 or at least ranked higher in more countries than other hits in the same month, but it's not very accurate since many of them were number one for different periods, and I didn't want to repeat any song.
Mostly based on Wikipedia charts.
🎧 Playlist: open.spotify.com/playlist/4l7...
After reading hundreds of comments trying to guess the country, I must say: It's not about the US or the UK. It's a mix of many countries and none in particular.

This channel got demonetized two weeks ago. I could delete all my videos and start copying other channels to get monetized again, but you didn't subscribe to see that. From now on, I'll try to make videos nobody has done before, hoping to make a difference in your life. The only way to achieve that is to take it as a hobby and spend most of my time on something else.
Just found this. You did an amazing job putting this together.
So many memories great songs all.
You're lucky they left it up. Most are being blocked before they get shown.
You sure are a beatles fan..😃
It's awesome sauce 😎totally made me feel like a child in the 70's again. When I had ALL MY FAMILY playing such great music 🎶🎵 THANK you 💞🌎🕊🫂
That is sad because these bring back good memories❤
The Beatles truly changed it all. The first 3 years of the 60's sounded just like the 1950's. Truly amazing what they accomplished in such a short span of time.
@Teemo league and buddy holly and fats domino and the coasters and Frankie laine and all of west Texas rock
That song was actually Tony Sheridan singing lead on My Bonnie w/The Beatles as back up band in their first commercial recordings. Song came out as Tony Sheridan & The Beat Brothers. Then they were referred to as Tony Sheridan & The Beatles, then The Beatles featuring Tony Sheridan. I would say Ain’t She Sweet, lead sung by John Lennon himself, was a better representation of these early recording although not released intil 1964. In the USA, o remember buying the 46 on the yellow Atco label.
Beatle songs are still being covered by not by stars. I don’t think many are stars anymore but I’m not from this generation of music. Time marches on with that nasty electronica, gangsta rap & whatever else. The new R & B even has a different sound so things change. Depends on what a person is in to.
Opinions vary based on subjectiveness. There’s people who didn’t like The Beatles or The Rolling Stones at all.
@Rev Rotunda I mean they are from the uk
I'm 73 years now and I still get thrilled with these songs!!!They're part of my life!!!
me too Marilene ! Ear candy for sure !!!!!!!!
wish I could have been there to fell that time. I am now 40 and I miss in my generation exactly this love which I feel when I hear the music and see people dancing at that time.
@Michael Bobrik Was what it was but still enjoyed music of all kind
Yeah me too man! I loved Elvis,Holly, Fats domino, Chuck Berry etc. who changed music forever; then along came the Beatles, Stones, Kinks, the Who, the Animals et all, and changed it again. Actually when I think about it the British Bands were following an evolutionary path, first laid down by Buddy Holly.
I've born in 2008 but i'm in love with the 60's music! Specially with The Beatles, they are so incredible 😻
@Jeff di Giusto God bless you too
@Aleyna Mehmetoğlu You earned those words, God Bless.
Same does my daughter. I am always surprised in how much music she knows from those yrs. Idk if it because I listen some. But she still gets upset when I say that these yrs bo one makes MUSIC 😂😂😂😂😂🎉
@Jeff di Giusto thank you so much for your kind words 💖
@Aleyna Mehmetoğlu Bless your youthful heart; you are wise beyond your years! ❤
It's 2023 but in a way these early Beatles songs still feel like a breath of fresh air
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this fabulous compilation! I was born in 1950 and had 3 older sisters, so I love it all!!!! I am lucky to have been born to enjoy such a rich array of amazing music!
Hello, How are you doing, hope you are good and staying safe?
@Rebecca Gable Hello Rebecca how are things going with you?
And nary a satanic, disgusting song among them (the Grammys).
Happy New Year 🎈 I honestly love your posts and always enjoy reading them in my lonely spare time.

I graduated high school in 1970 so this is pretty much the the soundtrack of my youth. The Beatles were a watershed, although the pop music of the 50s still managed to hang on for years. Surprised me there weren't more 4 Seasons, Beach Boys, and Motown that made the list. they loom large in my memory.
I also was 70 grad. Sure brings back memories
check out the 2nd most popular in the 60s-lots of them there
I cannot get over how much things changed from 1960 to the end of 69. Totally different culture, not only the music but the fashion, themes, and moods.
@Tyrone Brown why do you behave like a kid ?
The culture in 68-69 continued until about 1973. The mid 70s brought in another culture that continued until about early 1981. The next culture (alternative era) stood from 1982-1990.
Culture changed fir the worst!
@afxaloha89 So many things were happening, Viet Nam, Civil Rights Movement just to mention a couple.
@Tom Holmes that must've been so wild to see. So intriguing!
Jamais o mundo verá músicas tão belas. Tenho 73 anos e vivi essa maravilhosa época. Um dos melhores vídeos sobre o assunto. Excelente! Parabéns!!
I'm 51 and as a kid I always dreamed of going to the past and live in the late 50s early 60s just because of the music.
We did'nt have 2 nickles to rub together and the Russians were threatening to " Bury Us "but the music was tremendous !!!!!!!!!!....looks like we have come full circle..........
I was born in 1961, I remember hearing most of the music from 67 onwards. The Beatles and the Rolling Stones had a big impact on the trend back then. I love all the music mainly from 64, not an Elvis fan. A lot of classics from the 60's and there was a lot going on in the world at the time too.
now this is what you call music you can't beat the old stuff from the 50s & 60s
It was horrible. Unless the bands had African Americans in them.
I love listening to older music in the 1950's
That's not an opinion,Phil.....It's a fact !!!!!! We just did'nt know it then !

@James Swindley When my father said, Hippy, he always used the word "dirty" as a prefix. What great days they were, though!
@Mapper Neither of those songs were on the actual album though. And Strawberry Fields wasn’t a B-side, it was a double A-side single, so if SFF had been the first song instead of Penny Lane it would be on the list instead.
@psy-kylo-gy Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields was the single from it charted here. I'm gonna assume Strawberry fields is counted along with Penny Lane because it was the B-Side of the single
As a few comments said- Just a one hit wonder
Somos uma geração privilegiada que assistiu uma avalanche de grandes músicas que ficaram eternizadas em nossas mentes. Pobre geração atual que nunca conhecerá o êxtase de uma boa música...
What an amazing decade. Fondly remember nearly all the songs featured here. I started it as a poor farm boy trying to find my way in life. Halfway through, I met the girl who would become (and still is) my wife. I also got myself some further education and ended up working in the mainframe computer business. Thanks for this great compilation.
Congrats, OD !!!!!
This is a very valuable video showing highlight excerpts of the best hits of each month of year starting from 1960. This work must be commended as it is not an easy task finding all these clips. Thank you for the video!
WHY ARE THEY NOT SHOWING SOUL POPULAR HITS 2 WHAT HAPPEN TO MOTOWN,
LOVE THE HITS BUT I SMELL RACISM BIG TIME
This was awesome! I was 13 when the Beatles burst into the music scene and took over; I loved it! I feel like the late '50's-mid 70's was the absolute best time to have been born! What an array of fabulous music!
Being able to look back objectively now,I have to agree with you ,Kathy !!! The Beatles disappointed me with their drug themed crap but at the time but compared to today's music,they were Golden !
Hello Kathy how are things going with you?
Esa era música y voces de verdad! Inolvidables
Elvis really dominated the pre-Beatles years. Then the Beatles changed everything. Big shoutout to the Stones, too.
I got 100 replie
Elvis didn't want to stick to one genre, he liked ballads, european melodies, etc. He tried different styles and didn't have much say on what became the single releases. He didn't care, either. He is criticized for a lack of Rock''N''Roll at this time, but he did some banging Rock/blues stuff, it just didn't get picked for singles. Little Sister was a B-side! WTF! Elvis always did what he wanted to do, until Hollywood took over. Thank God he escaped that - eventually.
I know how popular elvis was in the 50s early 60's, I was a youth then but the beatles took it to a whole new level. The staff at the carson tv show said they had never experienced anything like the beatles fans in numbers before for elvis or anybody. Elvis was a singer. The beatles introduced writing own songs among other things. Billy Joel, Bruce Sprinstein amongst others say the beatles were their role models.
It's not a competition between elvis and the beatles, elvis was a good singer but the beatles were innovators of music.
The Beatles were just on another planet. Their first live performances on TV must have been like me watching The Sex Pistols on "So it Goes" in '76. They made the other artists look like corporate puppets, and after '65 they could do whatever they wanted and still be popular. But what amazing music this decade produced - Do we even have one or two songs a decade now that get remembered?
No,we don't Martyn....has been my complaint for 40 years..I think you summed it up nicely !!
*_EXCELLENT!!!_* Thanks so much for putting in the effort to produce this. So nostalgic. I started playing guitar in 1965 just when the Beatles were coming onto the scene. Now I can play most of their songs. Subscribed! 🤗
Now, THIS is music! The bittersweet memories that go with those contentious days will live in my heart until the day I die.
This compilation really hit me hard. I started playing music professionally in the mid 60's. Thanks for the memories.
It's interesting how 90 % of that music was worth listening to .....can't say that about any eras since...heavy metal and rap are two examples that belong in the 1 % bracket,if THAT !
Also thank you so much from me. I was 13 in the Summer of 1960, so ALL these records mean a great deal to me.
Parabéns pelas excelentes recordações
Amazing to see what the Beatles accomplished within just 7 years from the first album in '63 to the last in '70. Some artists push out 2 albums in that time. The Beatles changed the world.
I agree with you about the Beatles. But just think what a young Texan, by the name of Charles Hardin Holley (Buddy Holly) achieved in less than two years since the release of 'that'll be the day' in early '57 until his untimely death just some 20 months later! Buddy Holly: GOAT.
@ITS JUST A BIT OF BANTER LADS Beatles broke up in 1970. In 1973 Elvis performed a concert that was broadcasted to 1.5 billion people.
@Steven Huntley No Elvis was rock and roll's biggest star.....till 1964 and the Boys took over and how many song did Elvis write again? Lennon and Macca changed music! after the army Elvis was finished all those crap movies and he never toured the world, The Beatles changed the world.PEACE OUT FRA SCOTLAND
@Skip And Slide Hey if you like Dean over the Beatles then that's up to you, I was born on Nov 21st 1963 The Beatles were playing the Carlisle ABC, next day JFK was shot and i think The Beatles helped a lot of young Americans get over that horrible day. peace and love fra Scotland
EL MEJOR AÑO DE MI VIDA ,CON ESTAS CANCIONES INMEJORABLES VIVA LOS 60S ,
A década de 60 não teve pra ninguém ELVIS foi e sempre será o primeiro e pronto viva Elvis sempre! 💋💓👏👏🤙🤙🤙🤙👍👍❤❤💖
I was born in 2002 however my grandparents raised me and I am so thankful they shared their music with me. The 60s and 70s are by far the best time for music ABBA, Elvis, carpenters, bee gees, Beatles I mean come on so much greatness in 20 years!!
Thanks for your effort in making this compilation..some people were alredy dead but it feels them alive because of this nostalgic music back from the past.
@Dorothy Martin I'm a bit more picky about who I like from the 50s but still a great musical era
@jscho8674 thank you!
Your grandparents have great taste in music, and so do you! ❤️
Thank you I was born in 1947 so these song mean a lot to me I have most on my phone and just put it in my hip pocket and listen. Spent some time with our Grandson 23 we went thru what songs he like and a lot is the 60's & 70's this was his mothers 53 doing as the all our children listened to our music.
I loved this compilation, thank you. It made me feel very sentimental, I was nine when the tracks started, up to fourteen and I loved all these songs. It made me think of living at home in the tall, cold, old house full of love and laughter in the East End of London. We had very little material possessions, compared to today
Life was much more simple and - yes-my Generation did believe in Love & Peace. We still do love our planet and 🌍hope for a kinder future.

I would imagine that this video was a tremendously big job to put together. For all your work, thank you.
@Graham Taylor yellow submarine. I am a walrus, theres 2 shit songs right there.
Yes, it’s so fascinating to watch how it has developed through the years!
I just hope it would be possible for you to do the same for the decades before as well. Then it would almost be a history class (in a positive way!)! Thanks for the work!
A trip down memory lane. Where's Janice Joplin??
@Antonio Lima "...the truth is that he sold more then them so...".
See my reply to Dan Hole.
@Dan Hole I think you'll find that Presley being the top selling artist might have been based on American sales, not worldwide sales, though I may be wrong.
With Elvis his record company RCA and manager sought to shamelessly cash in on his popularity, thus they churned out single after single - it was QUANTITY rather than quality they focused on. As a result many of Elvis' singles ( and albums ) didn't do well in the charts. Particularly in his latter years before he died.
The Beatles approached things differently. They concentrated on producing quality work on a consistent basis. Sometimes ( due to their considerable innate talent ) this came effortlessly, and other times ( as with Sgt. Pepper ) they dedicated the time and effort to make something special. ( George Martin, their producer has to take credit for his contribution too ).
In essence the Beatles were true ARTISTS. Elvis whilst also an "artist" was more of a manufactured phenomenon. A visual performer. He had no innate musical ability. He relied on others for his song material. Sure he had a good voice, but most of his success was formed from that and his sex appeal to women, rather than his music ability.
Wspanialy film dzieki niemu przypomnialem sobie stare piekne czasy jedynie co moge to dziekuje ta muzyka wykonawcy bhli prawdziwi naturalni i spiewali od serca
The music scene then was eclectic;big band,soul,folk.rock was just starting to expand.
Hello Susan how are things going with you?
THE '60 PRODUCED THE BEST MUSIC OF ALL TIMES......NO DISCUSSION.....AND IT'S NOT A QUESTION OF NOSTALGIA....PROUD TO BE GROWN UP WITH THIS INCREDIBLE ARTISTS
Yeah, but what about pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, America, radio head, the eagles...
No the FIFTIES even more !
75 yrs old and significant events in my life were marked by different 60's songs. Oh happy and sad memories.
music is a VERY powerful memory evoking media !!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing like it to tickle the old memory box.....
This is a really fascinating walk back through time! It must have take a great deal of effort to put this video together. Thanks for creating and sharing this!
I just showed this video to my mom and she was happy and delighted. She knows more than 90% of the songs that she hadn't listened to for a long time and it has brought back many memories. Even the tears have come out of her eyes. I say it again: Thank you very much for the video, I honestly think it is the best video on this channel and I really appreciate it very much.
I wasn’t born until 63, I knew 100% of these! Get your mother checked for altzhimers or let us know that she’s only 30!
@Diana M MSC tbh a LOT of these songs are absolute hits and it would be impossible not to here them one way or another
Holy Sh*t. I know more than the 90% and I'm only 45... I feel very old now.🤣🤣🤣
💙atta boy respect
Geez some of these songs I was 5 years old and I remember every one
I enjoyed this very much, and I appreciate the work and effort putting this together - cheers!
Still the best decade by far in my humble opinion, and this fantastic summary reaffirms that for me.
@jhis made me LMAO. (The 90s)
The nineties where much better.
curti todas essas musicas nos anos 60, saudades, hoje estou com 78 anos,
This video is a stark reminder of how much really changed in the 1960's -- in the world, but especially in music. It was literally when, as JFK said in his inaugural two weeks before my birthday, the "torch had been passed to a new generation of Americans." Music underwent a dramatic transformation, new political movements began and America began its journey to the moon. Amazingly, I still remember the words to almost every one of these songs, even the earliest in the video!
No habia nacido en esa época todavía, pero me parecen muchas canciones hermosas
I was born in 1949 so I grew up with all these songs. So many memories. The Beatles changed everything of course and living near Liverpool it was all so exciting. But it wasn’t just the Beatles, seemingly every week somebody would bring out a fantastic new hit - Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Supremes, ……………
Can't argue with that,D.....I was born in 51 and lived this period as well...Till the drug culture took over ,we had the best music......
Rafael González Reyes ......born in 1948,best music ever 60's and 70's decades ,ncluding my Viet Nam experience.....
@Walkinthecow My grandmother was the same and she grew up poor ,sharecropping in the deepsouth . Really Secluded . Even if there was the radio and the TV you couldnt afford it. So all she knew was the church, to this day she knows nothing but Gospel.
Have so much nostalgia for the 60s just from the movies.
You guys are so lucky to experience the 1960s at that age.. Often think if there was a 1 time, time machine.. dinosaurs? Ancient Greeks? Egyptians? Or drive a Dodge Charger across Route 66 in 1966.
Arguably 1960s America was the apex of civilization in terms of overall economic equality, happiness, prosperity, pride, hope, technological/artistic feats..
*Whoever put this together - FABULOUS! I was in HS in the early 60s and wish I could snap my fingers and go back for just one day. The music was happy. The lyrics were about teen love. They turned dark and rebellious as the decade progressed. By 1970 the magic and innocence were over.*
You are so right. I love 1964, 65, 66, the best. After that, with the exception of the Beatles, the music did go down.
I LOVE Percy Faith's "A Summer Place." It brings me back to the Summer of 1960. I was 15 years old! When I hear it, I'm 15 again. I don't age! 😉 1960, there's No Finer time in Music. Pure Innocence!
I heard it on my old radio on a summer evening when I was in High School & thought it was one of the most beautiful songs ever.
So much originality, so much variety, even the Sister (Nun) was given recognition for her heartfelt talent. Dominique by Soeur Sourire
ahora me doy cuenta de lo mravillosa que era la musica que teniamos en aquella epoca nada que ver con lo de ahora
Thank you. So wonderful to see how much of the music from this decade has stood the test of time.

What happened to NEIL SEDAKA and PAULA ANKA ? both made such
greatest hits iconic songs , like You are my Destiny, Puppy Love, Put your Head on my Shoulder. (im just a ) Lonely Boy NS: One way Ticket , Calendar Girl, Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen, Breakin up is hard to do , Oh Carol , My World is getting smaller everyday not in the video?? These are certified world known songs.
Also the same year the 45 single finally killed off the 78rpm single, but from this list 3 songs were also available on 78 is Jim Reeves. He'll have to go, Elvis Presley. Stuck on you, & The Everly Brothers. Cathy's clown
Mike Smith I didn't have time to do it
thank you for the track list ❤️
This is a wonderful and very nostalgic compilation of my favorite music. I spent my entire teens in the 60s. I just wish the songs were longer.
Hello Collette how are things going with you?
I grew up in the 1950s and part of the 1960s and I remember them well sheer nostalgia and memories
The last thing I expected to find in this compilation video was Dominique from Sister sourire. This pre-dates me but I've heard my mom sing that song before so this brought me back.
I really, really enjoy those each month in a decade video. SO cool to get an overview of the songs and see which ones have stood the test of time. Very enjoyable content!
@smileycindy Yes that's PB's major British hit although he had a few others in Europe (Sha-La-La-La-Lee made 39 in the UK). Jeanne Deckers (like PB) was a native of Brussels. The Singing Nun (the film with Debbie Reynolds) is a lot less based on Jeanne's life than Soeur Sourire (a Belgian film which came out in 2009).
@WDH59510 I didn't know she was Belgian, either. Was Plastic Bertrand's song reaching the charts Ça plane pour moi? (That's the only song of his I know off the top of my head. It still plays pretty regularly even to this day.)
She was the first Belgian singer to reach the British charts. The second was Plastic Bertrand !
Hello Cindy how are things going with you?
Im a bit older than 70, music,songs and performers were a different league back then , real talent. Great collection of music .
I Love all these songs, I really love them. They have all been a huge part of my life since I was 2 years old. I was born 1967, I am 55 now & a musician. I have a Anxiety disorder have since I was 16,also Panic Disorder & PTSD,THOSE songs are the beginning of the music that got me through those hard times . I still sing those songs. I am great full for them all. Ty for sharing this
Hello how are you doing?
The best decade ever , best musicians, best songs , best bands the 60s will never die :'3
That's what the fabulous rocking FIFTIES are !
60's had the best music, artist's such as Elvis, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Animals, Ray Charles, and plenty more incredible musicians.
To Top Culture, thank U for this upload, I was born in 1970 and it is nice to see and hear the evolution of music. All these songs, you can hear the changes in sound, like from 1964 where Britain's influance by the Beatles changed or over ruled the Rock 'N Roll sound and by halfway 1966 the American's started to bring there own new artists to the level of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. But to the end, God Bless Elvis Presley to still compete with that level of music.
What a trip down memory lane. My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed watching & listening. Thank You!
Muitas Músicas e Cantores Maravilhosos, Músicas Eternas!!!
my parents were babies having babies - these are the songs of their twenties but as a baby of summer of 1960 - this is the playlist of the first ten years of my life - learned to walk and dance to all those great tunes of 1960 - 62 😉🤭 glad YT recommended you 😃🤗
Certainly puts into perspective just how hard Beatlemania hit the world. As soon as it hits 1964 it's almost half a year of Beatles songs.
By the time the other bands caught up the Beatles had reached another level
Yeah yeah yeah love you
@desiguy55 it all started in the mid fifties with Bill Haley and Elvis 🙂
@jim Heitkemper or the start of something way better: peace, civil, women's, ecology movements yes??
My times were the 70's but the 60's for me was a magical decade for music, songs, talent and voices....!
Early 60s still had that classy and relaxed vibe of the 50s but since mid 60s it totally changed to more progressive and bold
Great job and you edits were perfectly done, thanks!
I'm born in 1987 but I still know most of these songs. I wish they would still be played in the radio. I will show these to my kids!
It's fitting that the Beatles had the last hit of the decade! They owned the 60's and no one came close to matching their stellar output of great music!
The 60’s truly belonged to the Beatles, yet I expected there to be more of their songs on here. There’s still a lot though, and it’s still incredible how impactful they were
The first time I heard “Goodbye” by Mary Hopkin (written for her by Paul McCartney) I cried because it was so beautiful. How was SO MUCH of the greatest music for an entire decade created by these cute young bratty horndog little boys from Liverpool of all places? I will never be over it. They were truly a gift to humanity-a gift we didn’t deserve but a gift we desperately needed ❤
The Beatles didn't get going till the end of 63 so from then on with 6 years left they played, wrote and/or produced 24 of the top monthly tracks. That is a full third of the possible total. That is simply astonishing.
@Joe Masse Elvis has a film deal due to his agent so he wasn’t making nearly as much music in the mid and late 60s, and oh look, it’s the Beatles! Elvis would of put them in their place like he did in the last of the 60s and the 70s.
The Beatles were so ridiculously good that it’s hard to articulate. They’re the greatest cultural gift of the 20th century. It wasn’t just their music, which was leaps and bounds better than anyone else’s - they were actual composers wrapped in rock star cloaks - it was the whole package. Those of us who lived through the times they were around, well, we know that every act that followed wasn’t as complete. Those boys were the only folks who were simultaneously the best and most popular at what they did. They were simply astonishing. Genius descended from above.
David Moore Absolutely . Shame they were overshadowed completely by the Beatles (whom I love, however.)
Mis años dorados. Cada canción es un electro-shock de emoción y de nostalgia en mi corazón. Aunque demasiado breves los fragmentos.
@Grant Bennett333 WHY ARE THEY NOT SHOWING SOUL POPULAR HITS 2 WHAT HAPPEN TO MOTOWN,
LOVE THE HITS BUT I SMELL RACISM BIG TIME
Such memorable 💖 songs 🎵 💖 brings me back to more tender years .....
Elvis dominated the top of the charts in the early 60s then was drowned out by the Beatles but bounced back to the top in late 1969. I hadn’t even heard of The Bee Gees until they changed style in the 70s and road the disco craze to fame. I love how some of the songs perfectly encapsulated the time: Age of Aquarius, and Paint It Black, come to mind.
@80teg Paul McCartney solo was far better than Elvis ever was …
Only because EP was making movies!
@leon parham Troll.
@leon parham …Lets bring in the old race card.
É eu estou aqui chorando de alegria de ter vivido esta época.eu era feliz e não sabia.
OMG!!! The memories!!! These songs revive every month. I was 13 in January 1960 and this video takes me from 8th grade through high school, through a 2 year marriage, and then through almost 2 years of debauchery ('68/'69) ending 1 month before meeting my 2nd wife and starting an adult family life. As we used to say "What a Trip!!!!" Hope my kids don't read this!!
Lol! I loved your comment!!
As an add-on to my previous comment, I’ve just watched again and had an even stronger sense of deja vu.
I was born in ‘58 and experienced the 60s as a child. Every tune here triggers intense, synaesthetic feelings of the decade. This is one heck of a piece of work!
It seems to me now, that my entire young life must have been proscribed almost entirely by pop songs. TV was powerful as well, but not to the same extent.
I couldn’t maintain any real interest in the pop scene as the 70’s progressed. This stuff had made such a profound impression, that it all seemed like an anti- climax. There were flashes of interest here and there, but never the force -of-nature, brilliance of the material presented here. Plus, adolescence wasn’t as magical a time, really.
I'm 70 years old now, so I grew up with all of these songs. They always said that old age is the golden years - Well I think they put the gold in the wrong place - From the 50s to the 90s is where you will truly find the gold. These songs bring back such beautiful memories, that it breaks my heart to know the kids of today will not experience the beautiful life we had back then. The way the world is today - all the specialty has sadly been stripped away.
Twenty-first Century "Jungle Music" is all it is! 🦍
Você disse tudo, realmente fomos privilegiados. Éramos Jovens no melhor tempo que existiu. 🙏
@houseman I do sure hope so. I’m glad I’m still able to experience the past, even if it has already been lived and experienced. As a quote from one of my favorite artists says, “Music is eternal.” I’ll try and live by that.
@SaibopCUR quite insightful for a 14 year old. But you will have some wonderful experiences listening to our generation of rock from Elvis to Led Zeppelin. You will relive the experience of hearing all these different bands for the first time as we did growing up. And 14 is the perfect age to explore all the genre of our generation and you can go way back to the 40s and listen to some of the greats of the big band Era. You will have some great adventures,and just maybe you'll buy a turntable and spin out your favorite songs. You are living in a fast pace world and you could be bright and make a change for the better
@847777 I wonder how the world got to where it is myself... One of the huge things I think is the world lost a lot of the love that we had back in... Many people cared and looked after each other back then.
What a brilliant compilation. It was my special era and all the memories came flooding back... what a wonderful glut of pop music it was. Feel very emotional listening to it.
We should bring back this style of music. Upbeat and full of energy.
I remember hearing most of the songs way back then and again over the years. So much fun and great times back then with all the new best sixties songs on the radio. and playing with friends outdoors.
The standard of pop music back then was insane. Although I was born in the 80s I know almost every one of these songs and many of them will live on as standards for decades to come. I really can't say the same for post-2000 chart music.
Don't get me wrong, I think there is loads of incredible music still getting made but, in terms of what you might hear on the radio, in public, or in bars or clubs I just don't see modern pop music having anything like this kind of longevity, with the exception of a handful of songs, of course.
And The Beatles, wow, whatever your opinion of them their impact can't ever be overstated.
I loved this! What great memories it brought back to me. Thank you.
I graduated High School in 1967 and the Beatles were everything to me. When they appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, I sat in the livingroom and screamed with the crowd. It was wonderful for a kid from a small town, in a small state. What memories.....
@Jeremy Hillary Boob thx 4 clarification
@PunchUp not LeftRight Its a ClassWar WakeUp ah shoot sorry! i meant 1967.
My mom was 10 in 1967! I am so interested in 60s music so I always ask her about it..
@Strike M I'm sorry
An incredible, memory-stirring and along with the smiles, melancholy inducing, compilation. It's perfection. Thank you for posting this!
Awesome video for an awesome decade of music they'll still be marveling at it a 1000 years from now
This was before I was born, but I grew up with most of these songs, and I think the overall standard of popular music has declined in the decades since because of increasing commercialisation and formulaic manufacturing of popular music. There has been plenty of quality music since the 60's, but it has tended to be less mainstream and more niche.
Love love love the 60s best years ever, awesome memories and wonderful times with friends, thank you ❤️💯👏👏👏👏
Wow! This is great…so many memories…just because he’s one of my favorites, I’d like to throw this in:
In August of 1964,"Everybody Loves Somebody" sung by Dean Martin knocked the Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night" off the No. 1 slot on Billboard, going straight up to the top of both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Pop-Standard Singles chart.
Thanks so much! This video allowed this 71 year old to re-live his childhood. There was NO better time to be young than the 1960!
@vee Still waiting to hear what they stole…? Oh and I don’t have Facebook. 😌 See kids, this is what happens when you argue with your emotions contrary to logical thought.
@Selah says the person who subscribed to fox news channel on youtube
@Unapologetic White Male I was going to say they stole your brain, but that would imply you once had such a thing... *See kids, this is what happens when you skip history classes to go get information on Facebook, please don't do that or you will be like this hysterical European man, unable to keep his colonizer unrealistic opinions to himself*
@Blanca Suave The 1960's provided the world with recordings by the greatest compositions that fit into the Motown sound, including, The Drifters, The Impressions, The Supremes, The Ronettes, Little Stevie Wonder, The Shirelles, Martha and The Vandellas. I grew up listening to recordings by these groups. Although I am a whitey, I consider myself to be more "black" than most African-Americans, in part, because of the following fact. While a teenager and in my twenties, I saw live performances by DEXTER GORDON, SONNY STITT, CECIL TAYLOR, MAX ROACH, MCCOY TYNER, DIZZY GILLESPIE, BILLY HARPER, ART BLAKEY, ROY HAYNES, BOBBY HUTCHERSON, SAM RIVERS, ANTHONY BRAXTON, and others. All of these musicians are "gods" of American jazz. In my humble opinion, the fact that I saw live performances by all these jazz musicians, conclusively proves that I am more "black" than most African-Americans.
@brians48now Exactly. As a European American I am sure if I was in China or anywhere in Africa or any non European nation it wouldn’t be the best experience for myself either. This is why multiculturalism is bad for societies.
I need this as a play list on spotify 😁😍
@Ellie Sand ❤️❤️❤️
Just made one :) look up "monthly popular 60s"
It's a little labor intensive, but look up the songs, "like" them, and then you have a playlist Spotify creates called Liked Songs. Of course, you probably already know that. :)
I was born in the mid 60's so a lot of these songs were still on the radio when I was very little. It's interesting to learn who sung some songs I can barely recall. Thanks for posting this treasure trove of memories.
It's also interesting to see some of these musicians age. Elvis went from handsome young man to turning into the man that wouldn't even survive the 70's. The Rolling Stones also go from looking fresh faced to looking much like they do now.
Na toj muzici sam odrastala!hvala im!🌺☘️⛱️
80 years of age next week Thank you so much for bringing back wonderful memories of my teenage years.Super music .
Happy belated birthday wishes 💐🥂🤗
I'm a 60s love child I was born in 66.🇬🇧✌
I love the era,fashion,the music🙂✌
For those who don't know, Kyu Sakamoto was on the ill fated 747 which crashed in Japan years ago killing everyone on board.They were out of control for hours and had to know they were doomed. So how did Kyu spend his last hours? Writing notes which survived the crash. The notes were to his children and relatives telling them to treat each other with love, to always help family members and others in need of help, and most of all, help their mother in her later years. If he never sang this song, that man had more class than we ever will. RIP Kyu.
what a magnificent story. Thanks
sobering & very touching at the same time 4 myself...thanks much
Wikipedia states Japan Air Lines Flight 123, a 747SR, crashed into Mount Takamagahara 12 minutes into the flight as a result of decompression. And that was caused by an improper repair to the plane dating back to 1978. A large portion of the tail was ripped off and hydraulics failed.
I was booked on the Air New Zealand DC10 that crashed on Erebus in Antartica. So was Ed Hillary. We both cancelled our flights.
It’s so sad that so many of these singers met tragic untimely deaths. Dal Shannon, Ricky Nelson, Kyu Sakamoto, Roy Orbison, John Lennon, Sonny Bono in a snow accident, and Marvin Gaye, who’s father shot him. Many others who are not mentioned.
I was born in 1960 and this brings back some amazing memories!!!
What a great life I've had, thank you God so much!!!
Great, fantastic and immortal Rolling Stones with the brilliant founder and leader Brian Jones!!! Respect forever!!! 👍👍👍
1964 was definitely the most cataclysmic year in the history of music!!
Wow. What a great video. I was three years old on January 1, 1960, and this video covered my childhood memories of music. Most of these songs were played fairly often in the 1970s and 1980s too, and are still played today.
Thank you for making and posting this.
Gave it a thumbs up straight away. . Just brought back so many GOOD memories. Thank you for all the work you have done to put this out.
This brought back so many intense memories. 25 minutes covering my life from age 8 to 18. Can anyone doubt that this decade literally changed everything?
should have called the 60s classic rock
and now we’ve gone totally backwards!! starting with the “Me” generation, which was appalling!!!!!” i’ve stayed true to the ‘60’s my whole life! thanks 🌷🌱🌼🌈
That depends on if you mean 'literally' or not.
Can someone please make a Spotify list for this please? :)
That was my life back then when music was music! Gosh I wish I could turn back the time!
What a great decade . Fresh, innovative, genius.
Hello Jenny how are you doing?
