Just a couple more from 1966:

Walkin' My Cat named Dog -- Norma Tanega
Cool Jerk -- the Capitols
Elusive Butterfly -- Bob Lind
The Cheater -- Bob Kuban and the In-Men
Oh How Happy -- Shades of Blue

and who could ever forget:

THEY'RE COMING TO TAKE ME AWAY HA HA -- NAPOLEAN XIV

the flip side of the 45 (single to you kiddies) was:

AH AH YAWA EM EKAT OT GNIMOC ER'YEHT -- VIX NAELOPAN

and, yes, it was backward -- all by itself.

No apologies -- I just love this thread.

I missed a few from 1963:

Pipeline -- the Chantays
Rhythm of the Rain -- the Cascades
Wipeout -- the Surfaris (flip side: Surfer Joe)
Mr. Bass Man -- Johnny Cymbal
Midnight Mary -- Joe Powers
Dominique -- the Singing Nun

and

Sukiyaki -- Kya Sakamoto (entirely in Japanese, and we tried to sing along!)

By 1967, things were definitely changing. It was the year of the Monterey Pop Festival. So, of course, there was "San Francisco (Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair)" by Scott Mckenzie. And GMC already called "Judy in Disguise (with Glasses)" by John Fred and His Playboy Band.

And:

Different Drum -- the Stone Ponys
(Of course, Linda Ronstadt became a huge star)
We Ain't Got Nothin' yet -- the Blues Magoos
I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night -- the Electric Prunes
both bands had a number of good records, but these were their only "hits."

Let It All Hang Out -- the Hombres
Come On Down to My Boat Baby -- Every Mother's Son
Incense & Peppermints -- the Strawberry Alarm Clock
Expressway to Your Heart -- the Soul Survivors
Little Bit O' soul -- Music Explosion
To Sir, With Love -- Lulu (she also starred in the movie)
Green Tambourine -- the Lemon Pipers
Baby, Now That I've Found You -- the Foundations

I remember all of these songs, and danced to most of them, especially let it all hang out...that was a cult favorite
