DJ Jazzy Jen has commanded that we travel back to the 60s for the next couple of weeks for Twisted Mixtape Tuesday. Is this a challenge for me to find music? Heck no. I have an Ipod with all of the music separated by both genre and decade. I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time making sure everything on there is correct. I’ve spent even more time finding pictures of the proper album covers for each song. Yes, it’s a sickness…
So come along and join me on my little voyage back to the 60s. Let’s pretend that my bathtub is a time machine. That’s right, a Bath Tub Time Machine! I’m totally ripping off the movie, but I don’t own a hot tub. I also don’t hang out with John Cusack, which is really a bummer to me. Now I can’t actually do this the easy way: the bathtub I’m referring to is up in the attic of our garage (yes our garage has an attic…). We’ll have to do a bit of Mission Impossible type acrobatics to get up there. No pain, no gain, right?
Now that we’ve made it, let’s go back the 60s…
First stop? 1965…
I Got You Babe-Sonny and Cher 1965
I used to have the Sonny and Cher dolls in my Barbie house. Cher had a key that you turned and it made her hair grow. That has absolutely nothing to do with this song, and yet I had to tell about it anyway…
California Dreamin-The Mamas and Papas 1966
I have loved this song as long as I can remember. I’m a sucker for anything with good harmony. The Mamas and the Papas are a favorite of ours in this family.
For What It’s Worth-Buffalo Springfield 1967
No 60s list would be complete without a nod to this controversial song.
Break on Through-The Doors 1967
Let’s take a break from the folksy stuff for a moment and listen to some ROCK! This is my favorite Doors song.
Mrs Robinson-Simon and Garfunkel 1968
Coo coo ca choo… I can’t resist singing along with this one! I’ve never seen The Graduate. I would love to find it in a video store someday so I can finally see what all the movies are making fun of.
I actually could have made a whole list of nothing but Simon and Garfunkel, but for variety’s sake I restrained myself.
Now that you’ve seen my list, click on the cool looking link at the top and go to Jen Kehl’s blog and see what other people have picked from the decade of peace and love. Coming next week on Twisted Mixtape Tuesday-it will be the 60s part II… What else will we find in the Bath Tub Time Machine????
