our top 5
Pitchfork wrapped up their latest (and in our opinion their greatest) feature this morning, and it sparked much debate around gorilla vs. bear headquarters. We love lists (and we know you do too, despite your rude comments, anonymous guy) so we decided to share our Top 5 Songs of the 1960s, with the Pitchfork ranking in parentheses. Narrowing it down to 5 was super tough, and a lot of stuff just missed, so before you leave an angry comment asking "How could you possibly leave out (insert song here)?", please note that your song was Number 6 on our list. And for the record, we finished arranging our list last night, so as not to be swayed by Pitchfork's Top 20.
5. (tie) The Rolling Stones Street Fighting Man (#62)/The Crystals Then He Kissed Me (#18)
4. Van Morrison Sweet Thing (#72)
3. The Beatles A Day in the Life (#5)
2. The Beach Boys God Only Knows (#1)
And our number one song, which we feel was criminally underrated by Pitchfork staffers, from The Zombies' classic Odessy & Oracle:
1. The Zombies Care of Cell 44 mp3 (#98)
