      For me the late 50's and early 60's had some great rock and roll music. I high lighted 1963 in a lens. This is a great lens.

      While it is subjective and everyone will have their own opinion, long live the music of the sixties.

      Much like your 70s lens this is a great playlist to listen through but at the same time I'm sure I'd come up with my own list that differed from this one.

      Janis Joplin.. can't believe she didn't make the list! I agree with most of the ones on the list. The 60s was an incredible decade in so many ways.
