I was thinking about popular songs that I first remembered, roughly about the age of five or six. (Not counting songs like those from "Mary Poppins" say,which were geared to children.)
Back in the mid--60's, when Top 40 Radio was still on the AM freguency, listening to music on the car radio was my introduction to what the adult world was enjoying audio-wise.
My parents took me on trips in our Ford Mustang, which I fondly if dimly now recall. Our family vehicle now exists only in shadows on slightly grainy Kodak pictures, but the Mustang model itself (pictured above) remains a classic.
That brown and silver hardtop with the sporty look remains the best car I think my father and mom ever purchased.
These two songs leaped to mind as my introduction to pop music first, so here they are:
From Wikipedia: "Catch Us If You Can" is a 1965 song from The Dave Clark Five, written by group's drummer Dave Clark and guitarist Lenny Davidson. The song was one of DC5's top hits, reaching number 5 on the UK Singles Chart in the late summer of 1965 and number 4 on the U.S. pop singles chart later that fall.
This second song and its presentation nicely sums up (for better or worse) how young female sexuality was presented in the 60s as far as I am concerned.
