One Hit Wonders of the 60s

The 1960s is probably the most phenomenal decade when it comes to music — there’s the British Invasion, folk and protest songs movement, the psychedelia and the large-scale festivals that promoted peace and love. But before 1964, American music was still reminiscent of the styles and sounds of the previous decade — rock and roll, rockabilly, doo-wop, and traditional pop, among others. And here in this gallery, we get to know the one-hit wonders of the early 1960s, and the songs whose fame would later eclipse the artists.
