In this series, I pick a different theme each week and recommend five songs within it for you to give a listen. These tracks will include some of my favorites over the years, with many being ones I listen to on a regular basis. If you have any theme recommendations, post them in the comments, and your idea(s) may be featured in later editions. Let’s get started!
This week’s theme is The Sixties, the era of peace and love, and of course, great music. The sixties was a time where life was more free and relaxed. The music during this time was very diverse, and some of the most iconic bands of all time came into fruition. Thus, here is a playlist with some of my favorite songs from the decade.
