Music of 1964
I wasn’t 16 in 1964 I was 10, and there is a world of difference, the difference between a child and a (very) young woman. My first thought, Francoise Hardy not being my cup of tea, was “Thank heavens we had the Beatles and the Kinks and the Rolling Stones”.
However calling up a Hit Chart for 1964 reminded me that we also had Cilla Black. In her early career she worked in the Cavern Club and was considered part of the Merseybeat scene before her career moved into light entertainment and eventually Blind Date. I do have a soft spot for Cilla Black, a decent family woman.
But what I was listening to for my own pleasure as a 10 year old in 1964 was this,
the guitar riff that started heavy metal.
