I’m not ashamed to say that The Zombies and The Kinks are two of my all-time favorite bands. They’re so often passed over in favor of “cooler” bands, but when you get down to it, they’ve got lasting power that some bands of that era just can’t sustain. I feel that soft ’60s rock often gets overlooked in favor of its flashier brethren. When people think of the 1960s, they think Elvis, Bob Dylan, the Beatles. But while I love Buddy Holly just as much as anyone else, for this week’s Throwback Thursday playlist, I wanted to highlight my favorite tracks of the ’60s — those from the later years, who were setting the stage for the ’70s psychedelic rock scene, which were just as good as any Beatles banger or Elvis bop. So check out this list of absolute classics from the favorites you always forget.
