The '60s...


Jeffrey and I recently have been flashing-back to the '60s. We've found ourselves loving the poppy rhythms of Lesley Gore, Dusty Springfield, to The Chiffons...

The music makes me feel so happy... pure bliss. The intentions with the songs are so naive, and are usually about a boy, a kiss, or heart-break... it's so sweet.


Tracks I've been enjoying include:
  1. You Don’t Own Me
    : Lesley Gore
  2. Please Mr. Postman
    : The Marvelettes (The dance moves kill me on this one.)
  3. Leader of the Pack
    : The Shangri-Las (Check out that hair!)
  4. Is It True?: Brenda Lee
  5. Crying in the Rain: Carole King
  6. Keep Your Hands Off My Baby: Little Eva
  7. Baby It's You: The Shirelles
  8. Maybe: The Shantells
  9. Popsicles and Icicles
    : The Murmaids

As for the picture, you may remember this sweater from the Salt Flat Shoot, but it's actually a vintage sweater I bought at Savers in high school. It's still one of my favorites. I thought this specific picture (me playing with my camera yesterday) was appropriate, because I could swear this sweater used to belong to someone who listened to this same music I've recently discovered. I swear it.

I like a lot of 60s girl-group stuff as well. The songwriting and production are really great. It's kind of interesting to think that a lot of the performers of that era were kind of the Britney Spearses (minus all the public meltdowns) of their day: singers with pretty faces who performed music that was written and produced by professionals who were trying to score a chart hit and sell a lot of records. It's funny how perceptions have changed.

(BTW, I've been enjoying that Perro Del Mar album of late. Thanks for that.)

Thanks for the comments! Glad there's some '60's love out there... Spencer, glad you're finally enjoying Perro Del Mar- I had a feeling it would grow on you.!

I like your photo. The list is nice too, but one time we had "60s Dance Party" stuck in the cassette player in our car for three months straight and that kind of ruined the 60s tunes for me for a while. Like 15 years.
