The Top 100 Songs of 1965--#10-1

We have arrived at the moment of truth, although if you have a personal copy of The Top 500 Songs of the Rock Era*, you already know these 10 songs and their order.  But for the rest of you in suspense, enjoy these 10 classics as we wrap up our look at 1965:


  California Girls
Beach Boys

Starting us off in the Top 10, another great Beach Boys song from 1965.


  Get Off Of My Cloud
Rolling Stones

When the task is to find a suitable follow-up to "Satisfaction", the job is not easy.  Yet the Stones managed to continue the momentum with this #1 song later in the year.


Eight Days A Week

As busy as this Liverpool group was, especially in the early days, it only seemed like they worked eight days each week.


Turn!  Turn!  Turn!

Taken from Pete Seeger's adaptation of the Book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible, here is the Byrds' biggest career hit.


Ticket To Ride

The Beatles owned the Top 10 of the year, just as they had in '64.  The Fab Four place five songs in the Top 10 for 1965.



At #5, the title song from the Beatles' 1965 movie.

I Feel Fine
Beatles (no video available)


  You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling
Rigteous Brothers

Although some songs have caught it since, at the turn of the millennium, this was the most-played song of the 20th century.



This is still among the most recorded songs in history.  At last count, there were over 1,200 versions of this classic.


Rolling Stones

The #1 song of 1965, and one of the biggest of the last 60 years, is this gem from the Stones.
