Acclaimed Music Top 20 Songs of 1964

They really got the #1 in 1964

In Italy we have the phrase: "A volte anche i migliori sbagliano". It means something like "Sometimes even the best ones make a mistake". More often, though, mistakes happen to the worst ones. Like it was two weeks ago, when I published a post called Acclaimed Music Top 20 Songs of 1964. Well, it was a really great playlist. But, actually, it featured the best songs of... 1965. Like Bryan Adams used to say: please forgive me. Now I changed the name of that post (and of the relative playlist) and today I publish the *real* "Acclaimed Music Top 20 Songs of 1964" tape. Ruled by The Kinks' You Really Got Me and filled with some evergreen tunes like House of the Rising Sun, A Change Is Gonna Come, Pretty Woman, Gloria and the brazilian-flavoured The Girl From Ipanema. Enjoy!

(This is a kind of "history of music" project, based on aggregated charts found on Acclaimed Music. It features Top 20 playlists for decades 1920s, 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, and yearly Top 20 playlists (both songs and albums) for each year from 1960 to 2010. In a perfect world, it should be a weekly project...)
