Far, far too many in that decade makes it impossible to narrow down, but here's a few favourites.

 

Keith West - Excerpt from a Teenage Opera

Pet Clark - A Sign of the Times

Richard Harris - MacArthur Park

Dusty - Some of Your Lovin

Bob Lind - Elusive Butterfly

Jefferson Airplane - Wooden Ships

Temps - Ball of Confusion

Bob Dylan - Positively 4th Street

Fire - Crazy World of Arthur Brown

Pink Floyd - See Emily Play

 

Sorry, but couldn't pick a single Beatles song! For the Stones probably I'd go for Gimme Shelter.

I think Tony did this about 6 months ago. He asked for each decade with 1 song per band if memory serves me right. 

 

My list may have changed to be fair but I'll go with that one.

Ball of Confusion is a superb choice but released in 1970.

There are an irritatingly, for the purposes of this thread, large number of great songs released in 1970 and 1971.

 

Best music decade ever is probably about 65-75, so it makes sense.
