Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
It's 1965, and the Beatles still rule the airwaves. Motown has another excellent year. Bob Dylan "goes electric."

(The Lovin' Spoonful), Downtown (Petula Clark), Eve of Destruction (Barry McGuire), For Your Love (The Yardbirds), How Sweet it Is (To Be Loved By You) (Marvin Gaye), I Can't Help Myself (The Four Tops), I Got You (I Feel Good) (James Brown), In the Midnight Hour (Wilson Pickett), Like a Rolling Stone (Bob Dylan), My Girl (The Temptations), Nowhere to Run (Martha and the Vandellas), Subterranean Homesick Blues (Bob Dylan), The Sound of Silence (Simon & Garfunkel), Stop!
