The American public expanded it's tastes from the saxophone, folksinger and doo-wop of 1950s music to include folk rock, Motwon sound, and the British Invasion! The
hippie and counter-culture movements also brought the rise of rock, soul, pop, reggae and blues. Explore our collection of one hit wonders from the 60s below to experience a taste of this great era in music.
