"The Greatest Songs of the Sixties" is Barry Manilow's sequel album for "The Greatest Songs of the Fifties". It was released on October 31, 2006. The album was another major hit for Manilow in the United States, debuting at #2 in the Billboard 200 and selling nearly 50% more than its predecessor in its opening week. As with its predecessor, this album was produced by legendary Clive Davis, along with Manilow and David Benson. The classics performed in this album includes Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", Elvis Presley's #1 hit "Can't Help Falling in Love", Beatles' "And I Love Her" and Frank Sinatra's "Strangers in the Night" (the latter was also recorded by Manilow in his Sinatra-tribute album Manilow Sings Sinatra, back in 1998).
