List of the best pop artists of the 60s, ranked. The 1960s may very well be the best decade for music in the rock era. Music from the decade 1960-69 can bring back good memories for many who grew up in this era and holds a certain allure for those who were born later. It's tough to decide which. List of the best pop artists of the 60s, ranked. It's tough to decide which artists were truly the best of the 60s - perhaps the easiest way to judge these 1960s bands is by their staying power.
Prior to Joan Jett, Patti Smith, Courtney Love and other era-defining women in rock, there were the girls in the garage. Like their male counterparts discovered, being in a band was not only cool and alluring, it was sexual and ultimately political, but without the statement. The garage band was a medium that enabled their voices to be heard, and these girls weren't gonna be kept in the kitchen! Like pebbles did for the boys, Girls In The Garage captures the raw essence of those juvenile dreams played out through guitars, drums, mics and amplifiers.
It was one of the first crossover hits by a group of women of color, introducing mass pop audiences to what these chipper young girl groups could really do (with a pre-fame Marvin Gaye on drums, no less). A cover of it showed up on The Beatles’ Second Album in 1964, and the track even enjoyed another week at the top of the charts a decade and a half later, thanks to a version by the Carpenters.
There had been girl groups in previous decades, dating to The Andrew Sisters of the 1930s and 1940s, The McGuire Sisters of the 1940s and 1950s, and similar acts. But what distinguished the 1960s girl group phenomenon was its distinctive sound and the huge Baby Boomer market that sent the music to the top of the charts. Still, a number of the girl groups – especially those younger ladies in their teens and early twenties . was fifteen years old. What do I know about conflict of interest and making a recording deal?

50, 60S Girl Groups Audio CD. VARIOUS ARTISTS. Girl groups have enchanted humankind since the era of the ancient Greeks, when legend has it the Sirens attempted to lure wayfarers Odysseus and Jason to their fates; Persephone's chanteuses would eventually even lose a battle of the bands to the Muses. I highly recommend it if you want to live or relive 60s girl pop in all its glory, from the first notes of its childhood to the last chords of its maturity.
