The 1960’s were a turning point in the history of the United States of America – and the world. Post World War Two, pre-Vietnam, in the throes of the Cold War, the world was unified in strife. And out of that strife came the best music of the 20th century. The momentous musical achievements of the 60s still live on in infamy. Counter culture was becoming the mainstream, and everyone was ready for a chance. These songs ushered in the very change everyone was waiting for, and for that they are commendable. Get ready for some serious flashbacks.

Conclusion

The start of the most amazing five decades in musical history, the 1960s laid the foundation for all the changes to come. These five songs were the first foundations laid, not only for music, but also for greater American (or Western, or worldwide now-a-days) culture. There was a shift, and it there was no going back. Whether it was Dylan or the Voodoo Child, these five songs of the 1960s were remarkable and pioneering. Music would never be the same after these five acts came (and went), and we are all the better for it. So in this case, flashbacks aren’t a bad thing – in fact, they could do us some good.
