It was called the first 'Rock 'n' Roll War' by many. Indeed, many classic songs were given birth during this turbulent era. List seven songs you feel were of importance, either to you personally or to the general public during this time frame.

It's tough, I know, because there are so many from that time.

The following picks of mine are in no particular order:


1 When I Was Young, Eric Burdon - 1967
2 For What It's Worth, Buffalo Springfield - 1967
3 Fortunate Son, Creedence Clearwater Revival - 1968
4 All Along The Watchtower, Jimi Hendrix - 1968
5 Paint It Black, Rolling Stones - 1966
6 Hurdy Gurdy Man, Donovan - 1968
7 Born To Be Wild, Steppenwolf - 1968

That ten year period was probably the best ever for popular music. Here is my list which is focused mostly on war and society:

1.) 2+2=?; Bob Seger - 1969

2.) Wooden Ships; Crosby, Stills & Nash -1969

3.) What's Going On?; Marvin Gaye - 1971

4.) For What It's Worth; Buffalo Springfield - 1967

5.) Fortunate Son; Creedence Clearwater Revival - 1968

6.) Eve of Destruction; Barry McGuire - 1965

7.) Compared to What; Les McCann, Eddie Harris & Benny Bailey - 1969

I first heard Compared to What back in '73 when my brother brought home the Swiss Movement album. This song opened my eyes and ears to jazz. I was 18 at the time and could not believe a jazz group could rock that hard.

Those were the days, my friend...

I've never been big on who recorded what, and I don't really know if these lyrics are from the same song or not, but "I gotta get outa this place" and "Leaving on a jet plane" were 2 biggies that I remember hearing almost daily over there.

1. Bridge Over Troubled Waters - Simon & Garfunkel
2. Just about any Beatles tune from the period named.
3-7. Just about any of the afore posted pieces...

;-)

Of interest to note. My nephews oldest daughter turned sweet 16 last week. All, I do mean all the music played at the party was pre 1980. Think about that for a moment. Incredible testimony to the staying power of the music we listened to as teens. And ABBA accounted for only two of the music pieces. So the movie had little or no impact.
