The 100 Most Influential Singles of the 1960s
I liked Pitchfork's list of the 100 best songs of the 1960s for creating a canon of great 1960s songs instead of keeping the focus solely on albums, but I wanted to create my own revisionist take on such a list with the constraint that I limit myself to songs that were actually released on 45rpm singles. In addition, to make the list more interesting, I decided to focus on records that I thought were the most influential rather than songs that I considered the coolest or the best or the most pleasurable.

I just stuck an annotated FPP of this up over on the main site.

A well deserved one. Fantastic site!

I've made a Spotify playlist of the songs I could find.
