A lot of love for 1968 then…
So many great songs, what a creative period. Doesn’t it make you wonder what changed, what went wrong. Is it just me or do ‘they’ just not write ’em like that anymore?
We’ve had this conversation before. A playlist from 2014 self-evidently won’t contain so many classics. We probably won’t know half the songs other people nominate. Nor will it be the soundtrack to a period of such profound, youth-driven social change.
But it will still represent an amazing outpouring of creativity from vast numbers of people young and old from all over the world. I reckon we can make a damn fine playlist.
