Best songs of 1969: the Results Live

Dear AMers:
When doing the compiling of the results of the 50s and 60s poll I used to follow a (pleasant) routine using Spotify and YouTube. While I looked for the eligibility of every album and song inside your Top 20s I selected in Spotify or in YouTube (depending where available) the songs voted and the first song of the Side A and the side B of the albums voted. So while I was assigning your votes I was listening to the incredibly excellent music you were voting for (and of course keeping track on the ones I discovered then for my own lists). The experience was so f… good that I always though that the best part of the game was only lived by myself.
So I’ve decided to do the same for everyone, that’s what I call this thread the Results Live. Of course I’m aware that this kind of approach ruins mostly the surprise so I’ll only do it once, only for the songs of 1969. In order to not revealing the whole list I will post the first Top 100 and then I’ll only post the new incorporations to the list plus the changes in the Top 10 when we get to a Top 125, Top 150, Top 175 and so on. But, please, please, please, keep on voting the same way you did it before, vote for the song you really like and try not to do strategic voting. Just take this thread as a way of getting good suggestions for your own lists.
So without more ado, here you got the first songs that made the list, a Top 100 from only five lists so far. Hope you enjoy it, at least all of you will get a thread with a ton of YouTube links to great songs (the links go to the original studio versions when available).

Great initial Top 100, isn't it? With only 6 voters so far!! When we get to the Top 125 I will post the new incorporations and the changes on the Top 10.
So you got a lot of good music to listen for the weekend. Enjoy...

Re: Top 100 (10/07/10): 25-1

Wow, these posts surely deserve a response! Fantastic work, Honorio!

Re: Top 100 (10/07/10): 25-1

This list is amazing. I hope the final list will at least somewhat resemble it. Thanks for this, Honorio.

Re: Top 100 (10/07/10): 25-1

This is great Honorio!

This way the songs get the attention they deserve.
I've already discovered some great songs that I didn't know (very well) before.

Re: Top 100 (10/07/10): 25-1

Great Hon, Thanks a lot. Great idea to post these songs, especially those from the CSI experts (see my post in the 1969 thread if you're wondering who I am talking about)


Please next time don't post so many youtube videos on a single thread, because it takes forever to load and my computer almost froze. I couldn't open your thread !!

Has anybody had the same problem ?

Yeah, it would definitely be better if the links to the videos were posted instead of the videos themselves, but I'm not going to complain since this obviously took a lot of effort.

Re: Top 100 (10/07/10): 25-1

It's better on my computer at home !
