What song do you think is the ultimate 1960’s song?

Note. I just edited this because a comment really made me think. So I added one more song.
I am going to throw out a few because the 60s encompassed a lot of ground.
Born to be Wild – this is the 60s anthem. Youth, freedom, and heavy metal thunder.
My Generation- people always put us down. Nuff said.
Gimme Shelter – This song encapsulated the riots, the violence, the hard edge, and ended with its just a kiss away.. hope.
White Rabbit – the hypocrisy of drugs and our generations embracing them.
Revolution – the Beatles is odd but a spot-on commentary on the political unrest. It’s an odd juxtaposition with Gimme Shelter.
RESPECT – Aretha Franklin – queen of soul. This song represents so much of the rise in Motown, women singers and well. She is the diva.
All you need is love – while many Beatles songs might fit the bill, this little ditty sums up most of the 60s. All you need is love. Repeat until you believe it.
