Yes that's right--"they're all from the '60s" would've been on the right track but not quite it.  They're ALL.  FROM.  THE SAME.  YEAR.  1965 was apparently the most NUTS year for popular music ever--I mean, there's a few here I could lose without being too upset about it but even so that is _insane_.  I'm betting there at least a few songs here that _anybody_ from here would've at least heard of--if only as a cover version or from a Fallout game.  Or a commercial.  Or when Spongebob randomly started singing a parody of it or something, I dunno (I'm not a Spongebob watcher, but that's something I can easily imagine happening from what I've seen of the show).  I guarantee you've at least heard of the Beatles ones...

I'm now up to the beginning of 1967 in making this playlist, and I'd _like_ to say that #420 on the playlist was something...appropriate.  ;)   I mean, we ARE talking the '60s.  But no.  The Bob Dylan song with "Everybody must get stoned!" ("Rainy Day Women #s 12 and 35") JUST missed that number, at #418.  XD 


The songs are in chronological order by when they exactly hit their highest position (on the U.S. Billboard charts, because I'm an American and that's the one I have the most access to) IF I know when that was; by the month and year they hit the Top 40 for the first time if I don't know the exact peak date (I have a "Top 40" book that's way old, but it's from the '90s so it's still PLENTY good for the '60s), and failing both of _those_, by when they were released. 

This often leads to a song that'll say it's from the PREVIOUS year because of its copyright date being put in the _next_ year, because I'm going for "when the average ordinary person would probably have heard it on the radio the most", rather than "when the song first technically existed".
If more than one song that I know and have (this is based off of a collection I already made on my own computer) had their peak position in the exact same week, I do them in "countdown order" with the #1 for that week _last_.

  So...yeah this is definitely a "bookmark for later" playlist (and I've still got 3 more years' worth to go!) but then again so was the '50s one.  The idea is to put things in at least more or less order so you can hear the music--and along with it, the culture and trends of the era--change as you go along.  :)

You like Huey Lewis and the News? Their early work was a little too new wave for my taste. But when Sports came out in '83 I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consumate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor. In '87, Huey release this: Fore!, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip To Be Square". A song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should! Because It's not just about the pleasures of conformity and the importance of trends. It's also a personal statement about the band itself.


haha american psycho

Heartbeat, Heartbreak - Shihoko Hirata & Shōji Meguro



"Tell me why you did it, every dream falling apart
Tell me why you did it, after the promise
Still aching, still aching, oh baby I need your love
Looking so different, glaring street light...

Heartbeat, heartbeat, it keeps on pounding
Heartbreak, heartbreak, you tell me goodbye..."

A blind man tries to lead the blind. I'm not sure what they hope to find. The edge is coming closer. Promises and alibis. A different game is played behind the scene. And soon it's over. You better run, get away, We're gonna take you down, singing Viva la Victoria, so run, get away, you're gonna lose your crown, we're singing Viva la Victoria, Viva la Victoria. The puppeteers don't show their face. They pull the strings and leave no trace. Hey Ace! Now who's the joker?
You better run, get away, We're gonna take you down, singing Viva la Victoria, so run, get away, you're gonna lose your crown, we're singing Viva la Victoria.Viva la Victoria.

Working on one of my way-too-long chronological playlists; THIS

was literally the last song I left off on.  Everybody grab your small portable light source of choice and sway back and forth on the nearest hillside!  You kinda HAVE to, with this song.  (I'm in the mountains.  I'm technically already on a hillside.)

Fun fact:  I have in fact actually done exactly that.  It was a Beatles _tribute_ band, but they were really good and it was this awesome outdoor concert on a literal grassy hillside, in a park, with a nice atmosphere and _everybody_, including babies who could barely even stand up yet, rockin' out to the music.  They did this song near/at the end when it was getting dark, so everybody COULD pull out their cell phones and light them up with the correct effect.  It was frickin' awesome.  Little kids were trying to climb onto the stage and dance with the band, who were trying not to laugh, people were throwing a frisbee around...


(actually, considering that the original version of "wave a light on a hillside" involved people who might have been partaking of one or more of the...wonderful substances that were very popular in the late '60s, in the dark, waving LIVE FLAMES at each other (candles!)'s probably just as well we switched to flashlights and then cell phones.  XD)

Afterwards we met the band and talked to them a bit, and "Ringo" said he liked my shoes.  XD

Apparently The Smashing Pumpkins are still around? Just put out a new song 4 days ago and on Sumerian Records? I'm shocked by both of those facts. 

The Smashing Pumpkins - Cyr




I can't watch this video and not see a young Varys
