The "oldies" radio format which is now essentially dead in most markets was basically the era before "classic rock", ie 50s-early 60s.
So using that as my guide, I will go with:
Frenzy - Screamin Jay Hawkins
Love Me - The Phantom
Keep-a-Knockin (But You Can't Come In) - Little Richard
Lonely Teardrops - Jackie Wilson
Mercy - The Collins Kids
That's just off the top of my head and leaving off some of the more obvious artists.
Crimson and Clover - Tommy James and the Shondells
God Only Knows - Beach Boys
Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood - The Animals
Time of The Season - The Zombies
Young Girl - Gary Puckett and The Union Gap
OMG, that was hard.......I like so many.
Ein Volk! Ein Land! Ein Musikvideospiel! - Der_Lex
Ben E. King- Stand By Me
Awesome song but that's the only one I can think of off the top of my head. Been awhile since I last listened to music of that era.
