Wayne's Music 28/29 March 2009. 1960s.
Wayne Mowat with more songs that made the 60s "swing".
The decade has been idealized, romanticized, and heralded for the youthful optimism of its first half, the confusion, anger and disillusionment of the second.
Wild One Bobby Rydell. The highest ranking single for the one time teen idol.
Crazy Patsy Cline. Willie Nelson was a struggling writer when he wrote this song which Patsy Cline did not like at first, but because it became the most played song on American jukeboxes, and that fact that it has been recorded by just about everybody, it's now one of Nelson's most enduring numbers.
All Along The watch Tower. Jimi Hendrix.
Twist And Shout The Isley Brothers.
Ain't No Mountain High Enough Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.
South Street The Orlons. Before they became the Orlons, they were an all-girl quintet called Audrey and the Teenettes.
Mustang Sally Wilson Pickett. Mustang Sally nearly finished up on the studio floor, literally. After Pickett's final take, the tape flew off the reel and broke into pieces.
Fun Fun Fun The Beach Boys. Brian Wilson said he just wanted to write a song about a girl who borrows her Dad's car.
and many,many more ...
