Remembering The Chart Topping Songs Of The 1960's At Yamaha MusicSoft!

The 60's was a time of radical change and discovery in pop music in the United States. Pop music from this era broke boundaries in place from the 50's and saw the rise of rock music. Singer Songwriters that wrote and performed their own songs became much more common. Rock music evolved to include sub-genres such as folk rock, progressive rock, and pyschedelic rock.
