    Yes, I couldn’t think of a better thread title.

    What are those songs that belong irrevocably to the sixties?! The ones with 60s slang, references, anything that reminds you of this decade.

    I was just listening to California Dreamin’ when Spotify recommended me “Somebody Groovy” - the song title says it all.

    "Surfin' Bird". I know that lyrically it belongs to the ages, but I can't imagine it being a hit in any other decade.

    “Get Together” by the Youngbloods. We could pretty much name the thread after this one.

    Definitely on the short list of quintessential 60's songs.

    Let's not forget Bacharach and David's timelessly early 60s Wives And Lovers as interpreted by Jack Jones.

    It's funny that these days we think of songs from the late sixties as defining the decade. There were a ton of fantastic songs pre-65, but they could have generally been seen as fifties songs to some degree

    Right, it took about three events and four years into the 60's for things to really take off musically.
