I'm stunned - 3 of us have mentioned Scott Walker. I thought I was alone on that one (in the US at least).

None of my original five choices predate the Beatles. Here are five more:
The Walker Bros. - "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore"
Otis Redding - "Try A Little Tenderness"
The Foundations - "Build Me Up (Buttercup)"
The Count Five - "Psychotic Reaction" (One of my all-time favorite songs ever in the history of music. I should really say how I feel.)
Yardbirds - "Shapes of Things"

"Some Velvet Morning" when I'm Straight
I'm gonna open up your gate"

Way to go 7&7 IS. You stole my post with Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood.
But you Forgot:
"Summer Wine"
"Jackson"
From the same LP.

"Some Velvet Morning" is one of the most atmospheric vocals and lyrics of any era.

Excellent choice on "Yeh-Yeh." Love the version by They Might Be Giants, although it certainly falls outside the parameters of this thread. Cheers.

Somebody beat you to the 'Love' song that is your name. When I saw that, I said to myself that "that is your song". We spoke about this like a half year ago.
