1966 Hits Archive

Mom and I finished listening to the 1966 Hits Archive on the45prof's YouTube channel. I listened alphabetically by song title. I felt this was very very much a hit or miss year. I tended to have strong positive or strong negative opinions on most songs. And it felt like whole letters of the alphabet would go by where I just disliked just about everything. And then there'd be a string of songs in a row that I liked. So I can't say it was "bad" overall. I wonder if listening by artist would help??? 

The songs were definitely reflective of the many many cultures and subcultures of the 60s.
