    Popmusic wise the 1960s were 5,6 years of Beat, (Motown)Soul and Crooners (Engelbert Humperdinck, Tom Jones). Around 1968, 1967 Beat/Rock (N'Roll) mutated into Psychedelic. Soul had an offspring mutating into Funk , and Folk got into the focus. Also, first prototypes of Glam and soon-to-be Metal have been launched. Additionally, there were the first Ska records to be found in the uk charts in the second half of the sixties.

    In the early 1960s you had interesting but rather local phenomena like Surf or the Garage Punks, only to become popularized decades later via the Back from the Grave or Nuggets samplers.

    IMO, the late 1960s had way more in common with the 1970s (up to the emergence of Punk and Disco) than with the early-to-mid 1960s.

    The 1960s also were the last decade assassinations of politicians (at least in the West) were successful: The Kennedy Brothers, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X
