Rewind: Top Songs of 1967

The plan, in advance of a December post on the top 100 of 2012, was to publish the top 10 songs of every five year increment from 1962 to the present . That implies ten lists. Since it is currently late August, I should be posting about Radiohead and Dr Dre. by now with seven posts behind me. Instead I've got 1962 behind me and that's it.

So let's get on with it...

Top 10 Songs of 1967
  1. "I'm Waiting For My Man" / Velvet Underground / Velvet Underground and Nico
    "Hey white boy / what you doing uptown?"

  3. "Daydream Believer" / The Monkees / The Birds, The Bees and The Monkees
