Default Best song of the 60's (IMHO)

Soo many to chose from but I give the Kinks the edge here. If you don't know the back story, Ray Davies said it's the first song he wrote that he felt he used real lyrics on.

Disagree? post your favorite.

Actually the best song of the 60's is this: Sam Cooke - Bring it on Home to Me. Sorry LKizzle but you got the wrong Sam Cooke song.

I recently bought an "Abbey Road" copy from the 70s. I never gave the album any chance, but due to the LP I listened to it consciously and site 2 starting from "You never give me your money" is basically a meddley that has some of the best stuff made in the 60s on it.
Never heart something like that from the Kinks, Stones, Yardbirds or any other 60s band. Aside from the coda in "The end" they left the realms of (rhythm and) blues totally, which almost all rock & soul bands still used, even the upstarting heavier and funk acts.

This is my favourite part of the meddley.

The only other guy that creative in songwriting was Bob Dylan.

HM: My Generation by The Who, the ox was a beast on the bass.

Bring on Home to Me is just pure brillance.
I love the covers of it too.

by The Animals
by Wilson Pickett
by Van Morrison

by John Lennon

Speaking of Van Morrison, here's some blue-eyed soul from Northern Ireland.

Gloria - Them

The B-side of that was pretty good too. Baby Please don't go.

I don't listen to much from the 60s, but I dig this song.
