Billboard remembers how the end of the Sixites sounded

"The 1969 editon of the Billboard Top Rock & Roll Hits is one of the best ones in the series, albeit within the inherent limitation that they always have 10 songs on each and every album. That being the case, Tommy James & The Shondells should not have been allowed two bites of the apple; "Crimson and Clover" is good enough. On the other hand, including two covers from the smash musical "Hair," The 5th Dimension's #1 medley "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In" and Oliver's "Good Morning Sunshine," is perfectly appropriate. So much for consistency on my part. This collection certainly represents the music spectrum since it offers the bubblegum pop of Tommy Roe and The Archies as well as the spooky sound of the Zombies and Steam's classic "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye," which is still the greatest of the pre-"Rock & Roll, Part II" sports anthem songs. Everybody should know the rule of thumb by now: If a greatest hits collection would add five or more new songs to your music collection that you would really like to have, then you should seriously consider the album. Otherwise, feel free to keep on looking."
The age of aquarius

"all great songs for the year, the big hits, just really well catchy and singable tunes.
Aquarius/let the sunshine- the big hit that year with a song to bring in the age of aquarius(which is this century now)check out the bass line to 'let the sunhine in' cool.
Dizzy, yeah if you ever see the film clip with the spinning top background you'll be dizzy too.
Sugar,Sugar the bubblegum pop song for this year,from the cartoon.
Crimson and Clover- this is a cool song, i remember when it came out i listened to it everyday after school with a friend of mine ,it has a neat effect in the middle of the song with a rapid echo (or flanging)and weird effects. hair long hair reviewer is wrong,this is the short version, the long version is over 5mins, you can get it at time life records, i know , i have looked for the long version for years...
Crystal blue persuasion-mellow pop,another tommy james hit.
Na Na Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye- total catchy pop tune used for a lot of rally's, and the band was from ct.
Take A Letter Maria-am pop radio song sounds happy but the lyrics are really a downer.
Build Me Up Buttercup-another am hit song
Time Of The Season,just a really cool,groovy tune and a great organ riff.all of the zombies songs are good.
Good Morning Starshine-as soon as you sing along,the song is over,too short but thats the way it is
1969 a real good year for songs and different styles,flower power,psychedelic,pop, rock,bubblegum..."
