However, the term also refers to an era more often called The Sixties, which denotes the complexity of inter-related cultural and political trends in the west . "The Sixties" as they are known in popular culture in the western countries, is a term often used nostalgically to describe the culture and social revolution; and pejoratively to describe the era of the beautiful music by popular artists.  Also the decade has been labelled the Swinging Sixties because of the libertine attitudes that emerged during this decade. If you can remember anything about the sixties, that must be the heart touching music .

Slide2:

Now the 60s radio will remind you the musical journey of that period . There is no doubt the 1960s have become synonymous with all the new, exciting, radical and subversive events and trends of the period, which continued to develop in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and beyond. Also the period was an important one as considerable the music that was brought about . By some commentators it has been pointed out that this era was a classical cycle since a rigid culture, able to contain the demands for greater individual through extreme musical event. During this period in time rock music became the most popular way of defining the new hippie aesthetic, and the style that arose with the stark, swirling colours and hallucinogenic imagery was coined with the term psychedelic. Among others Bob Dylan demonstrated that expressive songs with surrealist imagery could be merged into popular music. Dylan though was one of few artists that did not jump on the psychedelic bandwagon. However, his efforts at the time inspired countless bands that did.

Nevertheless, it did not take long before the psychedelic aesthetic spread musically to other places such as New York, where band like The Fugs and the Velvet Underground, Sly and the Family Stone and the Chambers Brothers were inspired and in England bands like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, among others, began producing the same kind of music . During this period music entered and era of  "all hits", as an abundant number of artists released recordings beginning in the 1950s, as 45-rpm singles, and the 60s radio stations most of the time only played the most popular of the large number of records being made.  Also, bands most of the time only recorded the best of their songs to have a better shot at getting radio play. There is no doubt that the rise of the counterculture, particularly among the youth created a huge market for rock, soul, pop, reggae and blues music produced by drug-culture influenced bands like The Beatles, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Cream, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Bob Marley, Deep Purple, The Who, Sly and the Family Stone and Jimi Hendrix Experience also was helping to create folk rock.
