Sixties Sojourn is an initiative of Connection Matters Radio

The Top 60 Songs from the 1965 UK Singles Charts

Sunday 24 May 2020 at 3pm on 3KND – 1503AM – or the I Heart Radio App

The 1965 end of year singles chart in the UK is, in my opinion, one of the best charts of the sixties; and on today’s show we count down from number 60 to number one. It’s a countdown that features some of the highlights of the entire sixties music scene (as you’ll see below).

Shown below are just some of the artists featuring in the show. 

The Yardbirds

Marianne Faithfull

Herman’s Hermits

The Seekers

Jackie Trent

The Moody Blues

The Kinks

Sonny and Cher

Charles’ Pick

King of the Road – Roger Miller

Written and performed by Roger Miller – and a classic example of cross-over beetween country and pop – King of the Road inevitably has me singing along. A lazy yet engaging melody. Lyrics that paint real pictures in your mind, and  a voice that’s just effortless in its delivery. 

The Show’s Playlist

Here’s the complete playlist that went to air during the show. If you missed out, then don’t forget – whatever you do – to tune in to the next Sixties Sojourn program!
