Music of the 1960's!=)
A.K.A The British are Coming!!
Fads n' Fashions
The fashions of the 1960's changed throughout the decade. In the beginning of the decade, there were crew cuts on men, and bouffant hairstyles on women. Bouffant means to be poofy. Men wore casual shirts that were often plaid and buttoned down the front. In most public places women were required to wear dresses that had to be knee-length. But later into the decade, everyone wore colorful, psychedelic clothes.

The Sensational Sixties!!=)

In the 1950's a lot of music was written for teenagers. Chuck Berry was the first song writer to write a song using the words teenagers used back then (which was slang).His music was about rebellion, school, romance, cars, and other things that interested teenagers of the era. Basically it was the earliest years of Rock&Roll. Other singing groups of the late 1950's were Bill Haley and The Comets, Buddy Holly, and Elvis Presley.
The Late 1950's
Everyone knew about the Beatles. They were a rage in the 60's. It consisted of 4 people. Guitarists George Harrison and John Lennon, bassist Paul McCartney, and drummer Ringo Starr. They had many hit songs. In their recordings, they had tried things no one had before. An example is their song "All You Need is Love" which was recorded in 1967.The song included parts of the French National Anthem. There were also parts from the classical composer, Johann Sebastian Bach. There were also parts from the Beatles' other songs. After recording many hit songs, the band broke up in 1970. each wanted their own separate career. Sadly, that did not work out. Lennon was shot and killed in his apartment in 1980. George Harrison died of cancer in September 2001. But, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are still alive today.
The Rolling Stones!!
The Rolling Stones were the Beatles' biggest rivals. Teenage girls loved them, but their parents thought that the Rolling Stones were a bad influence. They were 5 people, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards. The Beatles were well dressed on and off stage. Most parents thought the Rolling Stones were loud, rude, and untidy. In other words, the exact opposite of the Beatles.
The fads of the decade were mostly teenagers' interests. Boys took to skateboards. (Obviously).
Girls had collections of barbies, that were introduced by Mattel in 1959. Barbies became huge, so huge, that its rival, Hasbro, came up with G.I. Joe, which was the first action figure for boys.
