I’m jumping around from the 1960s to the present, listing some of my favorite songs from these decades. The first post in the series was for ’00 decade, the second post was for the ’80s, and for this post we’ve jumped backwards to the 1960s and 1970s.
I don’t own every piece of music I’ve ever loved, so I may have missed a song or two. Some of these songs are what I call “guilty pleasures” but I’m being completely honest in these blog posts! Don’t make fun of me too much.
I’ve linked to the YouTube videos so you can hear the music, but just because these are some of my favorite songs, doesn’t meant these are my favorite music videos. You’ve been warned.
Please respond with your favorites from the 1960s and 70s. It may be a light bulb will go off and it’ll have been one of mine, too!
