Your favorite musical decade  

I started thinking about this last night at a party, where we listened to a lot of eighties' and nineties' hits. I realized that even though my taste in music has refined and even changed during the past years, especially after getting into Bowie, there is still some mainstream music that gets me into party mood, even though I might not otherwise ever listen to it.

For me, generally, it's anything from the eighties. It's usually silly and ridiculous, but it still easily gets me dancing and singing along. Even the stupidest stuff like Final Countdown. Which is kind of funny, considering that being born in the end of the seventies, I was a teenager in the nineties. And only in the nineties I actually became aware of things like the Music TV. In the eighties I don't think I listened to popular music that much. At least I didn't know any bands, or anything.

The nineties music on the other hand gets me kind of nostalgic. I remember when at school we detested the “techno” music like 2 Unlimited and other bands like that. I still can't say I like it, but now that we can all laugh about it, it's actually the perfect kind of party music. Everyone has some memory of most of the songs. Someone tells, embarrassed, that they actually bought a record then, with a certain stupid song on it.

But still. The nineties' music seems to be so much more boring than the eighties'. At least to me.

What's your favorite musical decade? What music gets you in the party mood?

70s. Bubblegum, Glam, prog, disco, soul, punk, post punk, New Wave, funk, reggae. No other decade has had the same diversity.

For me it has to be the 1960's, simply because I was only 3 years old when it ended, therefore my curiosity stays in the decade that lead the way.

The wonderful stereo productions of that decade are beautiful, making the best of two speakers, the clumsy yet magical quality of that period.

Just look at the guy who brought us the wonderful back to mono phrase.

He looks like a cross between Gary Glitter and Rod Steward

He has the most frighteningly haunting eyes, I've ever seen! but the guy is musical/soundworld genius.

I can't select any decade, in every decade you can find good music.

Re: Your favorite musical decade new [re: Claude]  

I'll take a guess...and say a cross between 60's and 70's

I have loads of recordings like you, but I tend to listen to the 60's decade more.
