21st century modernist & sixties underground music culture

Imagine you are 18 years old and you live in London in 1959. You've just heard 'What'd I say' by Ray Charles. Your cool friend somehow managed to buy it off a GI last week for an extortionate fee. Is this the first MOD anthem? 

If not then what is? 

If you could tell the story of the original Mod scene from Ray Charles in 1959 to the Who releasing 'My Generation' in 1965, what twelve tracks would you choose?

Would you even include the Who? Would you stop at the High Numbers?

Or would you go further?
