Must be feeling a bit nostalgic

Got looking at the playlist I set up today...hmmm. I don't live in the past, but sometimes I get in strange music moods. Some days it's a mixture, other days it's all classical, or country, or blues. Sometimes its rock from a certain period, other times a mishmash. Today seems to be an oldies-rock day.
This is the top ten on it:

"Tequila" by The Champs
"It's Only Make Believe" by Conway Twitty
"Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In" by Fifth Dimension
"Jupiter's Child" by Steppenwolf
"Pretty Ballerina" by The Left Banke
"Let's Live for Today" by The Grass Roots
"Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" by The Animals
"Good Morning Starshine" by Oliver
"Kind of a Drag" by The Buckinhams
"Let Me Be" by The Turtles

Anybody else out there old enough to remember these? Any comments on them?

I am not old enough to remember "It's Only Make Believe," but I do know the song well, and I also remember the duet of it Conway did later with Ronnie McDowell in the late '80s.

Great choices, I would have left off the fifth dimension but the rest of the stuff is great. Most the music on my IPOD is oldies.

Oh, and an addendum to the above: I like Conway Twitty's later country stuff better.

This was from back when he did rock and roll; about 1958, if I remember correctly.

I like "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and "Aquarius". I'm an oldies but goodies gal.

Nyx said...

Well, I remember hearing them... does that count? I've heard most of them, anyway. And I definitely count them as good songs.

That's from the time when they knew how to make good music, yeah ... I remember.
(I don't want to say that I'm old enough ... I remember, Okay??)

I love all those great songs. They just don't make them like that anymore.

The best of Steppenwolf is one of my all time favorites.

I Love Steppenwolf Hammer. You have a good list of songs and I have to agree with everyone they don't make music like they use too.
