OPINION: How to Find the Best 60's Songs

By Martin Sejas

If you are looking to find and download 60s songs straight to your computer, then you are going to need some assistance. And if you don't know the best songs from this era, then such a task is only made more difficult. This article hopes to present some tips as to how you can locate the best 60s songs to download and listen to.

I remember when I began my own journey of self-discovery of this classic yet bygone era and the one thing I can recall was not knowing where to start. I hope to use my experience to assist you so that you don't have to go through the same difficulties I went through.

The best indication of a good song is its commercial success. This refers to songs that were popular enough to reach high positions on music charts. So, the best starting point is to find out all the number 1 songs from each year in the 1960s. The best source for this information is by far Wikipedia. Just type in "Billboard charts" to go to the article on the US music charts and then click on the relevant link to go to the list of number 1 songs from the 1960s. More often than not, those songs that reached number 1 are very good and worth listening to.

Another way to find the best songs is by finding which ones were one-hit wonders during that period. A lot of these were hits without reaching number 1 and are worth having a listen. Once again, the best resource for this information is Wikipedia. Just type in "one-hit wonders" and find the article relevant to the one-hit wonders in the USA during the 1960s.

Keep in mind that you are not restricted to the US charts and can always choose to access other countries' charts such as the UK or Japan. If you want to download 60s songs that sound great, then following the tips above can make it so much easier for you.
