Re: Songs and Albums of 1965 Poll

Post by jamieW » Fri Jul 31, 2015 10:38 pm

For the second month in a row, I didn’t have time to re-listen to/rank all my favorite albums, but I’m pretty sure these would be the top 5. Since the first version of “I-Feel-Like-I’m Fixin’-To-Die” came out in 1965, I voted for it here, although I far prefer both subsequent versions (especially the live Woodstock performance). Also, I didn’t know how to handle parts 3 and 4 of “A Love Supreme.” I believe they were combined into one track on the original LP; but the CD I have has it divided in two, so that’s what I did…

Albums:

1. John Coltrane – A Love Supreme
2. Jacques Brel – Ces gens-là
3. Nina Simone – Pastel Blues
4. Bob Dylan – Bringing It All Back Home
5. Bob Dylan – Highway 61 Revisited

Songs:

1. The Mamas and the Papas – California Dreamin’
2. The Beatles – Yesterday
3. Jackson C. Frank – I Want To Be Alone (Dialogue)
4. Country Joe and the Fish – I-Feel-Like-I’m-Fixin’-To-Die Rag
5. Bob Dylan – Ballad of a Thin Man
6. Nina Simone – Sinnerman
7. Simon and Garfunkel – The Sound of Silence
8. György Ligeti – Requiem
9. Frank Sinatra – It Was a Very Good Year
10. The Rolling Stones – (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
11. Barbara Lewis – Baby I’m Yours
12. The Animals – Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood
13. Barry McGuire – Eve of Destruction
14. John Coltrane – A Love Supreme, Part 4: Psalm
15. The Righteous Brothers – Just Once In My Life

16. The Yardbirds – Heart Full of Soul
17. Nina Simone – Strange Fruit
18. James Brown – I Got You (I Feel Good)
19. John Coltrane – A Love Supreme, Part 1: Acknowledgement
20. The Supremes – My World Is Empty Without You
21. The Shangri-Las – I Can Never Go Home Anymore
22. The Rolling Stones – Play With Fire
23. The Statler Brothers – Flowers On the Wall
24. Bob Dylan – Like a Rolling Stone
25. The Beatles – Help!
26. The Beatles – We Can Work It Out
27. Nancy Sinatra – These Boots are Made For Walkin’
28. John Coltrane – A Love Supreme, Part 3: Pursuance
29. Jacques Brel – Fernand
30. The Sonics – Strychnine

Sorry for the absence, DaveC. After years of listing a certain fatigue has kicked in I'm afraid.

Mindrocker, hopefully, the fatigue won't last long (though I certainly understand). I love exploring every list on this forum, but my personal highlight has been exploring the lists of yours and sonofsamiam, since you both frequently list lesser-known songs and albums. I remember that you said once before that you don't get a lot of enjoyment out of listing similar lists to what you already have (which I again completely understand), but they certainly are a valuable resource to the rest of us. I'm just eternally grateful for the lists you've already provided and hope that you continue to participate on the forum, whether you make new lists or not. I think I can speak for everyone when I say that your contributions are invaluable...
