TOPIC: The Best Year(s) for Music
Created by: vabeachcouple33
Original Starting post for this thread:
In your opinion, what year(s) (5 year time frame maximum) produced the very best music?

I'm just curious - no reason required.

Me: 1991-1995.

"I was 6 in 1965... "

Well I'm sure it's not the same for everyone. Besides, if I had to pick one year to "assign" to you, I'd pick 1968 (the middle of your range). If I had to pick a year for me, it would be 1993 or 1994 (when I was 20-21).

Maybe I can't really use this for people born before about 1960. The change in music from 1963-1967 was so dramatic that any rules I have for those born later probably does not apply.

Mrs VA definitely does not follow this rule. She's more of a 1979-1984 girl.

I'd have to say 81-85. So I guess VA has pigeonholed me.

Although, if you asked me for my top 10 list, it would span music from the current day back hundreds of years (as some classical pieces would be in there).

tbr, you'd be the exception. The Beatles must have caught you up, I'm guessing. Perhaps you had older siblings? Hearing the Beatles for the first time, I not only realized the greatest music ever was happening, I also realized my parents were capable of being completely wrong. I was 11.

1980 - 1985

Most of the tunes I partied to back then have been redone because of rappers. I told my son the best music recorded was back then. That's the why the they still use it.

"Everyone seems to prefer whatever was playing in their teenage years. "

You're on to me.

My theory is that people currently under about 43 or so like whatever was playing when they were about 20-22. People older than that, when they were about 15-18.

That time period also included Zeppelin, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, and many more that couldn't even get close.

I could easily name a dozen groups that will be listened to a hundred years from now...

Meatloaf? Loved him in Rocky, but a top 10 album? Please...

Definitely the 70's but hard to pick a 5 year window what with Zeppelin and Pink Floyd and well, too many to count so I'll agree with AFT and say mid seventies.
