Thursday Thirteen
Thirteen things about music from the Sixties

~ It was very danceable and infectious
~ It's very upbeat, even when singing about unrequited love
~ I can understand the lyrics
~ Hell, I can Relate to them
~ The groups, whether male or female, had great harmony
~ I can't help smiling and feeling good while I listen
~ I love the percussion and orchestration that accompanied many songs (especially those Motown hits!)
~ Any song with snapping and clapping is going to get you moving!
~ I love a catchy name for a song and many songs had great names
~ It's a shame so many of the songs fall under the < than 3 minute rule
~ The sixties had some of the most memorable and fun dances to grace American Bandstand, Shindig and Gazzari's!
~ Of course, short songs mean I can fit 23 - 27 songs on one 80 minute CD!
~ Most music was bought on a 45 rpm vinyl record that had an 'A' and 'B' side. So even when the 45 sold for $1.25, you received two songs for the price of one. Sometimes you ended up liking the 'B' side just as much, if not more than, the 'A' side. Now we're expected to pay $ .99 for one song.

It does seem the songs were shorter. I wasnt around in the 60s but listening to the music always puts me in a good mood
