Yes, great theme! I love 60s music, can't wait to listen to this game.

Only thing left is finding something good myself.

Glad you like the theme. There are loads of very good 60s songs so you shouldn't have any trouble finding something.

60s is nice, I usually make the final when I submit a 60s song. I also managed back when everyone did it (the 1st edition).

Gee. I don't know if I know any songs from the 60s. I guess I will have to do some research. But I will try to come up with something.

I seriously considered traditional country, it was still very much alive in the 60s .

Maybe I'll be taking part just because it's Mauriac's theme

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 299 - The Sixties - Nominate!!!!!!!

Oh, I didn't find Gimme Shelter (my fav Rolling Stones song) in the used songs list, so I thought I could send that one. But then I vaguely remember having said 'Best Rolling Stones song ever' somewhere in this game before, which means it has been sent

After some searching: @AdeyC , 'The Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter' song is in the list as 'Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter' (without The). It's also the only Rolling Stones song without The. I think it should be with The.

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 299 - The Sixties - Nominate!!!!!!!

I was close to sending a Bowie or Beatles (yes, really! ) song, but discovered something more interesting in the end Hopefully it won't flop majorly (no N.M., it's not your suggestion, although I was tempted big time )
