A period of tumultuous change, the decade of the 60s was marked with events that shaped the nation, including:
the Vietnam War and anti-war movement
the assassination of key public figures (e.g., the President, a Presidential candidate, and several civil rights leaders), plus
the struggle for minority, women's, and gay civil rights.
Music typically reflects the changing era, and rock and roll, R&B, and classic country music saw the addition of different sounds, genres, and subgenres: soul, the Motown Sound, folk rock, the California Sound, and psychedelic rock. One unifying subject across all 1960s music, however, was the theme of love.
