If you could listen to music from any one decade, which decade would it be?

Asked by jca2 (16459points) October 1st, 2020

For me, I choose 70’s music. It’s the music I grew up with, from when I was a little kid.

How about you?

The 60’s. A lot of great music came out of those years.

Every decade has its gems and its turds.
The 60’s had great tunes, but they also had some of the worst I know.
The 70’s had some good rock, but they also had disco, and I’m not living through that torture again.
The 40’s bad music wasn’t as bad as the bad music from other decades. I’ll go with that.

You mean like for the rest of your life? For one year? For one day? For one hour?

I did most of my partying in the 80’s so that is the decade I will go with.

One decade only? How frightfully dull.

60s for pop and rock

20s/30s for jazz

I’d miss my old favorites from every past decade but I’ll choose whatever current decade I’m in — because I’ve already heard the old stuff thousands of times.

I want to be surprised by new music.

The ‘60’s. A lot of good folk rock from that time. I can’t get my head around rap music.

Rather than a specific decade, I could limit my listening to a ten year period rather easily: July 1 1965 to June 30, 1975.

That would start with:
I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) The Four Tops
Mr. Tambourine Man The Byrds
(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction The Rolling Stones

And end with How Long by Ace

1800–1810 approximately. When Beethoven wrote most of his symphonies and the violin concerto in D (1806).

I like @zenvelo‘s idea but if I had to choose a decade it would be the 60s. Motown, classic rock, folk, folk rock – the soundtrack of my life.

To sing along probably the 70’s. I hear 60’s and 70’s a lot where I live walking around in the shopping areas. The music plays like when you walk around Disney. You can listen to the station streaming here I highly recommend it for familiar music all day long 50’s thru 80’s if you don’t have a local oldies but goodies station where you live. There are some ads you have to live through.

70’s is from when I was a young girl, 80’s is when I was a teen, but by the 80’s I listened more to dance music, like runway music, and that is what I mostly listen to today from my era, but it doesn’t play much on the radio.

Probably the 1870’s or 1890’s. It’s a bit of a toss up really.

My music taste is scattered all over the place, from the 19th century to modern music. But if I had to choose one decade, I think I would pick the 1960s, because that period contains the most of my favorite music. The music then isn’t too sophisticated like the old time, but still manages to carry an air of classiness :)

60s and 70s for me. Hands down.
