1. My favorite song from 1965 was "Strychnine"...by The Sonics.

I was really into the Garage Band sound.


another favorite:


I lived in the Pacific NorthWest so bands like:
Rockin' Robin Roberts and the Wailers, The Sonics,
The Kingsmen and Paul Revere and the Raiders
were my local influences.

By the end of the year there was: The Standells...

and Love:


I pretty much would listen to most music, though.

1965 was a good year for music.

2. Great fantastic songs...

They all came out in 1966. 1965, most garage bands were still in their garages.

4. Ashamed to say I've never heard Thee Midnighters Whittier Boulevard.

Love it. The youthful enthusiasm is infectious. And it's just a great example of the instrumentals that were so popular in the mid '60's.

I loved those instrumentals and can't believe I've never heard this. The Ventures did a cover of this and that I listened to and loved. But the original, while not always the best, certainly is in this case.

5. Really enjoyed reading your blog

I was 3 at the start of 1965, so only vaguely aware of music. Looking at the list of top singles from the year I think that (unsurprisingly) "Help!" and "Downtown" are the only two I'm sure I knew at the time.

I had no concept of recorded music - inexplicably (& despite my father being a very good pianist) we didn't have a record player. At the time, in South East England, the two big radio stations were Radio Caroline & Radio London. I believed that the music I heard on the radio was being played live, and that the groups sailed from ship to ship to do it.

For me, my musical go-to year is 1975. I fell in love for the first time that summer - just as "I'm not in Love" was at #1. Oof! It's still the track I play more than any other, and I can't hear it without wondering what happened to Jane, the pharmacist's daughter and object of my adolescent desire.

6. thank you for your kind words

1975 was a landmark year in music. Someday I will write about it. It was the year that Bruce Springsteen song "Born to Run" was released. the glitter scene was petering out. 2 years later it was punk.
