This book is a must for all lovers of sixties music.

They say that if you can remember the sixties you weren’t there. However, as a teenager at the time, the music made such an impression on me that it is still crystal clear in my mind today. I remember the excitement and anticipation of hearing new releases from a mix of both established and unknown artists.

Here is my Top 30 personal choice of singles that never reached a UK chart position higher than number 20, but which, in my opinion, deserved a far higher placing.
This book is filled with facts about the 30 records together with some personal observations.

How many of these records can you remember? Would they be your personal choice? Why not share your own list of mishits on my Facebook page? I would be interested to see your opinion on my selection and the different choices you would make.

Informazioni sull'autore

Born in 1952, Steve Pennykid grew up on a Leicester council estate built to accommodate new families after the war and the baby boom of the 50’s and 60’s. Steve was an only child and although he had plenty of friends with whom to play football on the green outside his home, he had time on his hands to develop his love of the written word, and as a child always had something to read whether it be a football annual at Christmas, a thrilling children’s story or a Look and Learn comic. Writing though did not come until much later.Steve took early retirement in 2005, which gave him a few years to achieve a number of goals he set himself to do before he was 60. One of these was to write a short story and try to get it published. This was a big ask as he had never written anything before. However, it was achieved in 2010 when a local story-writing competition gave him the opportunity. By then he had written one story – The News from Spain. He began to amend this story to suit the framework required for the competition but it soon became a completely different tale – Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.These are both gentle romances but Steve's writing has now become more eclectic with a number of other tales including two detective stories, from his Chief Inspector Robert Casey series, two children's short stories and a non-fiction title under his belt.Steve also loves music and you will undoubtedly notice a common theme in many of his stories of titles and chapters containing the names of songs, particularly those from the 60’s. His passion for music of this era encouraged him to write his own personal favourite, the non-fiction "MisHits of the Sixties".Steve lives in Loughborough and is married with two sons, a daughter-in-law and two delightful granddaughters.

About the Author

Other Titles


As it has for millions of people, music has formed the soundtrack of my life. My favourite era of music was the mid to late 60’s. If I had to select one year, then 1968 would be the one. As you will observe in my top 30 of minor 1960’s hits, all of which I believe should have achieved higher chart positions, 1967 and 1968 releases account for the vast majority.

1968 was the year that I left school and started work. I was now earning my own money and didn’t have to rely on pocket money to fund the purchase of records, clothes etc. My musical taste is eclectic but I always return to the music of the 60’s.
