OT: The 66 Most '60s Things About 1966

Another click bait, for sure, but for a number of folks on this site it should bring back a few of those memories of youthfulness and groovin' on a Sunday afternoon (oh, wait, was this one later?).

Two things that immediately come to mind for me are England winning The World Cup for footy in the summer, and Ready Steady Go finished forever on TV, in December 1966.
One great memory with winning The World Cup, as we haven't won it since.

The other one is a sad memory, as we never did see again, a music programme as good as RSG for teenagers like me. It was the best, and still brings back great memories when I look at the youtube clips. smileys with beer

A year goes so fast, plus the 60s last year 1969 was in many ways a preparation for the 70s, while also having it`s own distinctive style. Watch the party scene at the beginning of the 1969 film "The April Fools". Never have I seen so many beautiful women:

Looking at the list, one thing that struck me was the pic of the LA Coliseum for the first Superbowl. Because the field is so long, the playing field for the NFL was placed closer to one end zone. The fans sitting in the opposite endzone were so far away from the field of play.
I'll take Aftermath over Revolver, Pet Sounds, etc.

Aftermath UK version is so good. It is my fave album by the original Stones beside Beggar's Banquet. Flight 505, It's Not Easy, Think, are such great songs, among the others, well worth listening to loudly through speakers or headphones, for many years for moi, not caring about potential hearing loss. Oh, right, that's partly why I am wearing hearing aids today and keep the volume around 3 generally, 4 if I wanna rock.

"Groovin'" was released in the summer of '67.

When they used it for baseball, a home run hit to left field only had to travel 250 feet.

Revolver by a landslide.

The U.K. Aftermath is a milestone release and is very good, but Revolver changed everything.

The U.S. editions of Revolver and Aftermath are a little redundant now, in my opinion. Unless, however, you're an American of a certain vintage who has the nostalgia pangs.

Wow, I never knew this. What a short field, must have had a lot of home runs before they moved into Dodger Stadium.

The left field wall at the LA Coliseum had a 40-foot high screen erected, making it more difficult to hit one out. I went to many ball games there with my dad.

Lovin' the responses and such here. Raises a question: Was 1969 the end of the 1960s? Basic math to me - you start with counting at 1, not zero, and end at 10 for a decade. So, wouldn't 1970 be the end of the 60s decade?

In the States, and especially in the Midwest, where I grew up, It was the ultimate Garage Rock year, but sadly, the end before psychedelia took over. Mitch Ryder and the Detroit had one of the greatest, toughest rock records ever: Devil With A Blue Dress. It was the end of the innocence. Widespread drug use was on the horizon.

1 BC, followed by 1 AD.

Counting therefore from 1 instead of 0, yes Dec. 31, 1970 is technically end of the 60s.

I think you could make a strong case that the 60s began on November 22, 1963 and ended on August 9, 1974. That's kinda the way I see it, anyway.
