My Top 100 Songs: 1960-1969

Over the next few months I am going to be rolling out my top 100 favorite songs by decade. Considering that I really don't like any music pre-1960, I'd probably have a difficult time listing more than 10 songs from the 50's, so this project begins with the 1960's. Look for the 1970-1979 list in the months to come.
