Same here. I grew up in the 60's - the golden age of pop music - when every song was either G, Em, C and D or A D and E. Simple 3-4 songs, although it must be said most of them changed key - not easy for a beginner guitarist to play along with unless you're anticipating the changes. Back in the 60's, you DID anticipate the changes once you'd heard a song once or twice!
Ah, the 60's.....the Shadows, The Beatles, The Kinks, The Beach Boys, The Stones, Manfred Mann, The Hollies, The Byrds, The Who......those bands (roughly in order of radio appearance!) shaped my musical listening from then to the present day. OK, later on in the 60's I got into other bands - The Small Faces and CCR spring immediately to mind, but the Troggs (Wild Thing) and Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Titch (Legend Of Xanadu) were always on the radio too. Then there was Motown - Supremes, Gladys & The Pips, Marvin Gaye, Martha and the Vandellas, The Temps - and Stax and Atlantic - Wilson Pickett, Booker T and the MG's, Otis Redding, Ray Charles, The Drifters, The Coasters....and then we had women who could actually sing and put some emotion into their recordings....apart from the aforementioned, there was the great Dusty Springfield, there was Lulu (who could REALLY belt a song out!) there was Sandie Shaw.....and of course, the finest one-hit wonder of all time, Lorraine Ellison with "Stay With Me Baby."
Then of course there was psychedelic rock, psychedelic soul, there was Dylan and the Band (although I really didn't get Dylan till I was much older!) - music just EXPLODED in the 60's, everything was fresh, new and vital....there will never be a more creative period, ever. And when you think most bands used to go into the studio and record live - no overdubs! - there was never a problem recreating exactly the same studio sound on stage.
There are time when I wish I'd been born earlier - 1947, instead of 1957 - then I could have actually watched some of that music live. Still waiting for that time machine to be invented....
