Five Faves - the Swinging Sixties

Pip from Meet Me At Mikes is doing a musical Five Faves so I thought I'd sing along. Over the past year I've been working on an online Australian music timeline so I've spent lots of time listening to music from the 1950s onwards (pretty sweet job I know). Here are five of my all-time favourite 60s songs (not Australian I know - except the Easybeats - but my research takes me far and wide)!

God Only Knows - The Beachboys
Friday On My Mind - The Easybeats
No Milk Today - Herman's Hermits
Sunny Afternoon - The Kinks I Call Your Name - Mamas and the Papas


  1. What an awesome project!! It would be a great way to discover or re-discover some fantastic music ... I must admit I probably don't know half of the great Australian artists from that era.

    I love your musical selections ... I ALWAYS get 'Friday On My Mind' stuck in my head ... there must be some level of irony in that? ;)

  2. Thanks Tracey. I'm thinking of putting up some clips now and then featuring great (but sadly neglected) Auusie singers and bands - what so you think?
