Each of these Spotify playlists contains music that was popular in the summer of each year of the 1960s – songs that hit the Top 40 charts between Memorial Day and Labor Day of that year. Here you’ll find everything from doo-wop, crooners, and Motown girl groups to surf music, British Invasion, and psychedelic tracks. There are over 600 tracks in total.

I hope you enjoy listening to these Summer Of playlists as much as I enjoyed putting them together. The tools I used for these playlists include charts from The Ultimate Music Database, playlist conversion tools from Soundiiz, and Paul Lamere’s Sort Your Music tool for Spotify.
