RSN 1960s Top 1000
List created by Gabriel Thy

Groovy man weathers we're having Mister, a change is gonna come, hair is longer, beards are all the rage, the seeds from the 1950s bloomed into a free love while not entirely free was a quick toke away until the irresponsible beatnik rainbow race love turns to Black Panther race hatred as half the nation seethes at the horribly near shrieks, violence, and death tolls of war.

The Radio Scenewash Network's Top 1000 of the 1960s decade leaves few moss-covered or rolling stones unturned, a period of music which moves the sounds deeper into the mashing of older black rhythm & blues with the rising tide of young white performers. I was still just a green kid playing ball, telling campfire stories, and bamboozling my teachers for better grades than I deserved during all the tension of the 1960s, yet I began to build a psychological soundtrack.—December 27, 2013
