Growing up, my dad would play the hits of The Beatles, The Monkees, and other 60s artists. I was surrounded by music from the 60s and I did not even know it. It was not until a few years ago, that these songs started popping up in my playlists and I fell in love. Not only was I recognizing songs from my childhood, but I was falling in love with the music simply because it was and is perfect. I will take this so-called 'oldies' music over anything being produced today. So now, I share with you, 60 songs of the 60s that will truly make you want to twist and shout.
