Twenty songs from 1965

Wherein More Details are available

Solid year, other than the Stones, nothing major on here. Anyone else think the Rolling Stones whining about censorship at the Superbowl was a tad hypocritical? They lost the right to make that argument when they sang "Let's spend SOME TIME together" on the Ed Sullivan show.

Again, another lame song by Elvis, but I’m feeling generous and won’t cross this one out.

Something interesting for me is that for three songs on the list, I prefer the later covers. For me, Devo owns Satisfaction; even though it’s a mostly straight cover, I prefer Bow Wow Wow singing I Want Candy; and, I’ll take Boy From New York City by Manhattan Transfer.

Now it's your turn - what do you find interesting about me?
