"Norman"-Sue Thompson... I wanted to post this from the begining, but I thought it was regional. It was #3!!!
"What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted"-Jimmy Ruffin..."Who have loved and now departed"
"Pretty Ballerina"-Lefte Banke...Better than "Walk Away Rene"
"Pushin To Hard"-The Seeds..."Pushin too hard, pushin' too hard, pushin too hard on me (too harrrrd)"
"Ballad Of The Green Beret"-Sgt. Barry Sadler..."Fighting Soldiers from the sky, fearless men who jump and die"

Well Although lots of my favorite songs of the Sixites have already been mentioned here, so I won't duplicate them but here are a few lists of ones I really like that I have not seen mentioned yet...

Come On Down To My Boat - Every Mother's Son
To Love Somebody - The Bee Gees
8:05 - Moby Grape
Spirit In the Sky - Norman Greenbaum
Signs - The Five Man Electrical Band

...and rather than keep posting different lists another five would be:

Gloria - The Shadows of Night
Love Is All Around - The Troggs
Reach Out of the Darkness - Friend & Lover
Let's Live For Today - The Grass Roots
Get Together - The Youngbloods

...and then 5 more...

Neon Rainbow - The Box Tops
How Can I Be Sure - The Young Rascals
Baby's Calling Me Home - The Steve Miller Band
I Talk To the Wind - King Crimson
Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies - The Association

...and just for kicks 5 more...

She Comes In Colors - Love
Western Union - The Five Americans
I Love You - People
I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight - Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
Soul Experience - Iron Butterfly

There is an incredible amount of songs that could all be easily put here...I could keep making lists all night long

Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies... good inclusion.

The Dave Clark 5 did a good cover of 'Get Together', called 'Everybody Get Together', a UK hit in 1969.

Hmmm...I am doing this from memory and you are right. "Shout" is from 1959. At least I got the artist right.

Not necessarily my five favorites but the first to come to mind:

"Something in the Air" - Thunderclap Newman
"Walk Away Renee" - The Left Banke
"Nights in White Satin" - The Moody Blues
"Ferry Cross the Mersey" - Gerry and the Pacemakers
"Time of the Season" - The Zombies

The actual line is "Hi everybody. I'm Archie Bell with the Drells. We not only sing, but we dance just as good as we walk."

I said to myself,"If this is an incorrect Archie Bell quote, Dibbity will catch it". You posted that quote in a spoken word thread some time ago.
Like I said, I am doing this from memory and I am even spelling some of the artists name wrong. Is it "Left" or "Lefte Banke"? But yeah correct me where I need correcting.

Gosh Ed,
I'm sorry, I posted then looked at it, then regreted it, then thought I took back
off fast enough. But you are right 1959 is close enough and it is a killer song.
