Ah, the 1960s. A time of tremendous social, political, and musical change! This decade was a turning point for art and music – new sounds were born, and iconic bands were formed that we still remember today. The ’60s produced so many hits that have become classics in their own right, while other acts may have only had one moment of glory before fading into obscurity. So why not take a trip back in time to revisit some of the greatest songs from this era? Let’s find out which tracks are timeless gems that will never go out of style!

“Dirty Water” – The Standells

In 1966, The Standells’ “Dirty Waters” almost made it to the Top 10. It became a huge hit in Boston due to its many references to the city and events there; even being used as an anthem for some local sports teams.

Despite this success, their other three songs released during the 60s – “Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White,” “Can’t Help But Love You,” and “Why Pick On Me” – failed to crack into the Top 40.
