The 1960s may very well be the best decade for music in the rock era. Music from the decade 1960-69 can bring back good memories for many who grew up in this era and holds a certain allure for those who were born later. It's tough to decide which. 60S Music The Top Pop Artists of the 1960s. Originally by Ranker Community. List of the best pop artists of the 60s, ranked.

C'est Chic! French Girl Singers of the 1960s. Released a year after Big Beat International re-introduced the world to the hip-shaking beats of 1960s Japan with Nippon Girls: Japanese Pop, Beat & Bossa Nova 1966-70, Ace's Big Beat imprint returned with the equally shag-tastic C'est Chic!

Following a relaxation of the rule that all music must adhere to strict socialist values, and with nearly 40% of Hungary’s population aged 20 or under, by the mid-60s the younger generation was looking to the West for entertainment.

Such a comparison cuts both ways, emphasizing the graceful economy of his lyrics and the Hill Country lonesomeness in his vocals, but also acknowledging the self-destructive tendencies that ultimately undermined his career. Some tracks echo their earlier songs and influences-girl groups, Motown, and even Tin Pan Alley-but by synthesizing these sounds, the Beatles wound up with a style that felt like the start of something new.
