I'm looking for sixties party music.

So most of the sixties music I know isn't really appropriate for our sixties party coming up, i.e. Dylan, the later Beatles, The Band, The Byrds, and so on don't really get the party going.
Here's some specific song examples of what I'm going for:
Early Beatles - Twist and Shout, Roll Over Beethoven
Beach Boys - Do You Wanna Dance, Barbra-Ann
James Brown - Papa's Got A Brand New Bag
The Guess Who - American Woman
Dion - Runaround Sue
The Strangeloves - I Want Candy
Turtles - Happy Together
Monkees - I'm A Believer
People might want to dance, but not slow dance, so that negates a lot of the "My Girl" or "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" type stuff.
For my purposes, I'm expanding the 60s to include 59 and 70. I'm also especially interested in stuff where the 60s has fully grown its own sound. "Twist and Shout" and "Barbra-Ann" are great, but sound like they could have come right out of the fifties, while "Happy Together" and "I'm A Believer" are different - but still suggest both types.
