British 60s Pop Music Invasion & Influence


Without doubt, there was a large invasion of British pop music to Singapore and the US during the 60s but personally, only a number of these songs were appealing. The singers, groups and one particular melody that still keeps spinning in the head today, include:
1. Gerry & The Pacemakers - How Do You Do It - 1963
2. The Animals - House Of The Rising Sun - 1964
3. Petula Clark - Downtown - 1964
4. Dusty Springfield - Wishin' and Hopin' - 1964
5. Freddie & The Dreams - I Understand - 1964
6. Peter & Gordon - World Without Love - 1964
7. Swinging Blue Jeans - Hippy, Hippy, Shake - 1964
8. The Rolling Stones - I Can't Get No Satisfaction - 1965
9. Dave Clark Five - Catch Me If You Can - 1965
10. The Hollies - Bus Stop - 1966
11. Lulu - To Sir, With Love - 1967
12. Herman's Hermit - There's A Kind Of Hush - 1967
Many of the above songs have been performed by our own groups during the 60s.
