Acclaimed Music Top 20 Songs of 1966

When you search "Good Vibrations" on Google, 
it can happen you to find this nice thing 

A playlist with Good Vibrations, God Only Knows, Paint It Black and Hey Joe cannot be wrong. Especially if it features some great soul goodies, too, by Ike & Tina Tuner, Four Tops, Percy Sledge, Otis Redding, James Brown, The Supremes... along with a couple of those gigantic tunes that we all have in our deepest memory, even if we don't remember who wrote them (Buffalo Springfield's For What It's Worth, Lovin' Spoonful's Summer in the City). Just four songs missing from Spotify: surprisingly, by The Beatles. 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...)
