Any song released in any country during the 1960s is eligible. It can't be a later cover of a 1960s song.
I think the edit shouldn't be eligible, it's clearly not from the 60s. The whole point was to have 60s sounding songs, not modern retakes on old classics

@AdeyC @Mauriac any thoughts?

Zowie. I love when songs get replaced and the result is such a splendid upgrade. 2nd time this game that's happened. The standard of this game was high to start with but with both replacements it got a little higher.

Not devastated to see Love Child go if I'm honest.

Leavers for SF1:

The Supremes - Baby Love
Carole King - It Might as Well Rain Until September
Can - Mary, Mary So Contrary
Ennio Morricone ft. Nora Orlandi - Metti Sera Una Cena
Katty Line - Ne Fais Pas La Tκte

Didn't really hate any of these, but it is a 60s theme after all .

i really don't have era-specific taste i don't think. but i do find this game a little underwhelming.

btw/ i had originally sent a kinks song, but changed it because somebody nominated another kinks song for game 297.

In my view I see no reason there shouldn't be at least one Kinks song featured pretty much every week.

Sixties were awesome, and this game is pretty damn good. Easily the best since my return to the game.

Additionally, I am sure almost all the musicians you most admire would take my side when making their own assessments on the quality of 1960s music.

I hope I can actually write a set of triggering reviews for this game

You're probably correct but 'A likes B' is not a transitive relation No, seriously, it's not that I deliberately want to hate 60s music. It's just my experience that I do not really like most of the music made in that era.
