1967, A Damn Good Year

If you need to watch a lighthearted movie after the ghosts and goblins of this past Halloween weekend, I highly recommend Pirate Radio. Not only is Phillip Seymour Hoffman, well, PSH, but the soundtrack is OUT of this world. Actually, it's not. It's just a flashback to a damn good year in music - 1967. Here are the tracks:

 1. Stay With Me Baby by Duffy (the first is ironically NOT from 1967)
 2. All Day and All of the Night by The Kinks
*3. Elenore by The Turtles
*4. Judy in Disguise (With Glasses) by John Fred & His Playboy Band
 5. Dancing in the Street by Marth Reeves & The Vandellas
 6. Wouldn't It Be Nice by The Beach Boys (takes you back to your youth lazing on a hot summer day poolside)
*7. Ooo Baby Baby by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles
*8. This Guy's In Love With You by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass (one hit Mexican wonders(
 9. Hi Ho Silver Lining by Jeff Beck
 10. I Can See For Miles by The Who
*11. With a Girl Like You by The Troggs (two hit wonders)
 12. I'm Alive by The Hollies
 13. Yesterday Man by Chris Andrews
 14. I've Been a Bad Bad Boy by Paul Jones
 15. Silence is Golden by The Tremeloes
 16. Friday on My Mind by Easybeats
 17. My Generation by The Who
*18. I Feel Free by Cream
 19. The Wind Cries Mary by Jimi Hendrix Experience
 20. A Whiter Shad of Pale by Procul Harum
 21. These Arms of Mine by Otis Redding
 22. The Happening by The Supremes
*23. Cleo's Mood by Jr. Walker & The All Stars
 24. She'd Rather Be With Me by The Turtles
 25. 98.6 by The Bystanders
*26. Sunny Afternoon by The Kinks
*27. Father and Son by Cat Stevens
*28. Nights in White Satin by The Moody Blues, Peter Knight & The Lo
 29. You Don't Have to Say You Love Me by Dusty Springfield
 30. Stay With Me (Baby) by Lorraine Ellison
*31. This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You) by The Isley Brothers
*32. Let's Dance by David Bowie (actually from 1983...oops!)
