For those of us who were around in those days,

This is my vote above all others, for the most Iconic Song of the 1960s. I graduated High School in 1970.
From when it came out in 1964, right up thru 1970 when I graduated from High School this was played at ever school dance
and was ALWAYS the last dance of the night.

The band could be really good, but if they didn't do a good job on this song, they usually weren't asked to come back..
or the band could be not really that good, but if they did a darn good job on this song, they were ALWAYS asked back...

Enjoy the blast from our pass.

From 1964, Erick Burden and the Animals.:

I love the Animals though, a white boys take on classic blues

Ohio by CSNY. Recorded in May of 1970 so technically it missed the cut. But it played off of the anti war culture of the late 60's.

Remember why, specifically, the Bill of Rights was written...remember its purpose. It was written to limit the power of government over the individual.

There is no believing a liar, even when he speaks the truth.

1963 Louie Louie by the Kingsman. First R&R song to be investigated by the FBI as a threat to morality.

In the winter of 1963, a team of FBI agents spent their days hunched over portable record players, struggling to decode a message that threatened the morality of America’s youth.

It wasn’t from the Russians or Castro, but a band of Portland teenagers called The Kingsmen. And the song was Louie Louie.

“J. Edgar Hoover felt we were corrupting the moral fiber of America’s youth,” Mike Mitchell, guitarist and founding member of The Kingsmen, told me in 2016. “The FBI guys came to our shows, and they’d stand next to the speakers to see if we were singing anything off-colour. It was a different time.”

Don't be the darkness.

America will perish while those who should be standing guard are satisfying their lusts.
