Wow ! Those of us who did grow up in the 60s, myself included, we grew up with explosive stuff and change in the world.
I have to add, as I taught Keith Potger how to string a guitar with less winds, The Seekers actually nudged The Rolling Stones and The Beatles from no.1 in 1969 with " The Carnival is Over"- anyone remember that?
That was the year of Woodstock, Hendrix etc. Weren't we lucky to have had such a rich period of music?
Glad I'm a Boomer.

The 60's were great for music, that's for sure. But don't leave out "Lesley Gore". As my granddaughter
says," It's my Potty and I'll Cry if I Want To".......Nuf Ced....

Love the Grassroots, and Valleri was one of the Monkees best efforts.

I missed the decade by about ten months, but the music of my parents loomed large.

Beatles, Buck Owens, and Otis Redding were my primary influences and still the ones I still listen to most often from that decade. Usual suspects besides that. Far too many to list.

All the previous, plus a few more I did not see mentioned (sorry if I missed one):

In-a-gadda-da-vida (Iron Butterly)
The Look of Love (by Burt Bacharach, sung by Dusty Springfield)
Almost anything by Herb Alpert, but especially the Taste of Honey (anyone recall the album cover? :D) Good, TelleU already got this one - apologies.
Astrud Gilberto / Stan Getz (especially Girl from Ipanema and Summer Samba ['So Nice'])

And, honorable mentioned to John Barry for the James Bond theme(s).
Actually, thinking about movie soundtracks, there were a bunch of good ones which I probably can't remember them all.
