'60s Soft Hits

Artist Song
Frankie Valli  Can't Take My Eyes Off You  
The 5th Dimension  Up-Up and Away  
Dionne Warwick  Do You Know the Way to San Jose  
Skeeter Davis  The End of the World  
Percy Faith and His Orchestra  Theme from "A Summer Place"  
Harry Nilsson  Everybody's Talkin' (From "Midnight Cowboy")  


When rock 'n' roll arrived in the '50s, it hit like a hurricane, but the entrenched forces of lounge and easy listening weren't ready to give up the ghost . . . so by the time the '60s happened, a high tide of soft hits flooded the airwaves: this was a perfect middle ground where the rebels mellowed, the chillers chilled, and the popsters popped. Here we celebrate the gorgeous twang of the Shadows and the utopian melody of "Wonderful Land," the dreamy brilliance of the Queensland-raised Brothers Gibb ("Massachusetts"), the Phil Spector-orchestrated majesty of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" by the Righteous Brothers, and the Fifth Dimension's timeless ode to weightlessness, "Up-Up and Away." Mix your cocktail to the rhythm of the Tijuana Brass, in Next Steps.
