If you could go back to any decade of the 20th century, which would you choose?

Asked by slipperyguitar (98points) June 2nd, 2010

Even though I was born way after them, I would want to experience the 60s because of my love of music in the era. Jimi Hendrix and The Doors, my favorites lol.

So what decade would you all choose?

The 1920s Paris, New York City, and Berlin. Literature, Art, and events of the period were incredible. I lived through the 60s and am glad that I did, but a lot of what we were about had to do with what went on in the 20s. Both periods were much more interesting than today, in my opinion.

I think the 1920s would be a lot of fun, as long as I was sufficiently wealthy. If I’m going to be poor I think I’ll stick with the present.

Honestly, I would probably choose the ‘20s as well. I’ve always been interested in the ‘20s. Everything about it is interesting to me: the music, the jazz, the movies, the prohibition, the gangsters, the flappers—it’s all cool. In 11th grade, we did a decades project and the decade my group chose was the 1920s. We ended up having the best project in the class (highest grade). That just made me like the ‘20s even more. :)

Mmm, i don’t like 1920s because think it is the time full of war and poor. I would choose 1990s.

I quite fancy the wild west era and being a madame of the night!

I would agree with the 20’s and 30’s. And I would have to be rich. No washing machines. NO ME!
I’m not doing laundry by hand and I’m certainly not cooking everything from scratch all the time.

The Roaring Twenties!

Hell to pay in the 30’s, tho.

I would definitely go back to the 60’s or 70’s…. great muscle cars!

I wouldn’t mind going back to the 90’s. There are some things in my life that I’d do differently. :-)

The 60s…...of course.

I’m torn between the 20’s and 60’s. Oh I can’t choose – agh, the 60’s. I love the music, ideals, fashion – everything :)

@DominicX I did the same thing in 11th grade lol. Except we had to make magazines about either the 20’s or the 30’s. We even had a Great Gatsby party where we dressed up in gaudy clothes and whatnot.

80’s or 90’s… yeah sure 90’s :D

slipperyguitar's avatar

@mYcHeMiCaLrOmAnCe why do you pick the 90’s? Music, society? I’m curious.

slipperyguitar's avatar

@mYcHeMiCaLrOmAnCe Bon Jovi lol. I love him. The song “Livin’ on a Prayer” is one of my favorites because of the talkbox in the beginning.

@slipperyguitar yeah it’s a really nice song I love it :p but “Blaze Of Glory” is my favorite <3
