BEST SONGS OF '61 AND '62
(8)
Was 1961-62 a lull in the history of rock, soul and pop? An intermission between the great late 50's and the Beatles era? Maybe so, here are some of my favorites from those years. Others?
1961

Crazy--Patsy Cline
Crying--Roy Orbison
Runaway--Del Shannon
Mama Said--Shirelles
Gypsy Woman--Impressions
Travelin Man--Rick Nelson
Blue Moon--Marcels
Cupid--Sam Cooke

1962

Locomotion--Little Eva
Big Girls Don't Cry--Four Seasons
You Beat Me to the Punch--Mary Wells
Baby It's You--Shirelles
Twist and Shout--Isley Bros.

BEST near misses at each end:

Will you Still Love Me Tomorrow (1960)
Up on the Roof (1963)
