I can't find anything by Googling, so I'm beginning to think I imagined it, but there was a brilliant short film on the telly (three years ago?) made by a near contemporary of mine, for which the soundtrack was the chart music of late 1966/early 1967 that he reckoned his mother had been listening to.
