We’re just two years away from the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ arrival in America, which marked the beginning of the British Invasion. It was a time when rock acts from England dominated the American charts. Along with the Beatles, British Invasion acts like the Rolling Stones and the Who remain massively popular today, while others, like Herman’s Hermits and Gerry and the Pacemakers, haven’t quite maintained the love. 

Now we have a question for you: What is your favorite song from the British Invasion? Keep in mind this is the first British Invasion we’re talking about here, so the song needs to have been released between 1964-’67. Even songs by British Invasion acts after that period won’t count. That may just allow for three years, but it was an insanely active period for these groups and there’s a ton of songs to pick from.
