Five best songs from the Summer of Love

4. The Hollies - "Carrie Anne"

Supposedly written about Mick Jagger's girlfriend and future art-punk icon Marianne Faithfull, this song embodies the link between Mod-cool and radio-friendly commercialism. Despite a somewhat misogynistic final verse by Graham Nash, "Carrie Anne" sits in a great tradition of young men writing quixotic odes to the women they long to touch -- yet ultimately must resign their desires to the more famous, better looking popstars.
