    So, we plan to meet our neighbors on Christmas and to listen to sixties music. I already have plenty of titles ready (including Polish songs that you have most likely never heard), there are plenty of lists on the web, but I wonder what are favorite sixties songs of other PFers.

    So much great music came out in the sixties so it's difficult to know where to begin but anything from the Beatles or Rolling Stones may be a good starting point.

    Velvet Underground--Anything, the fact that it wasn't "hit" music in the 60s shouldn't matter.
    Waiting for my man, Femme Fatale, Stephanie Says, Sweet Jane, and, of course
    Rock and Roll

    but probably not White Light/White Heat, not for a party

    Just for fun, how about a non-hit.

    Phil Spector made a great holiday album, "A Christmas Gift For You", featuring some great girl groups - The Crystals, The Ronettes, Darlene Love, plus Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans.

    I was too immersed in music in the 60's - both listening to it and performing it. Any detailed post would have to be a page long. Lots of good suggestions here, anyway.
