What’s your favorite summer song from the ’60s, ’70s or ’80s?
A random telephone poll of 1,000 adults by VH1 Classic had more men picking the Rolling Stones’ 1965 ode to sexual frustration, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” than any other tune.
Women went for “I Got You Babe,” Sonny & Cher’s portrait of domestic bliss — at least until their divorce. That was also from 1965.
Others in the top five were The Police’s song about an obsessive boyfriend, “Every Breath You Take,” from 1983; the Doors’ “Light My Fire” from 1967; and, from the Commodores in 1978, “Three Times a Lady.”
VH1 Classic presents music videos, concerts and music specials featuring rock, soul and pop artists from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s.
