Vote – What Decade Had The Best Music? [Poll]

Comstock – ThinkStock

Last week, I wrote about the 5 albums that I feel had the strongest influence on my music taste. The list included acts from the 60s, 70s, 90s, and 00s. I also noticed a comment by my cousin the other day, that in the 70s, “music was actually music”, which lead me to think about this topic.

I was born in 1978, so I really grew up during the 80s. But as I was growing up, I always felt drawn to older music, mostly 60s (Beach Boys, The Doors, etc) and 70s (The Who, Led Zeppelin, etc) rather than the music that was new when I was growing up.

It’s pretty interesting when we think about music styles and how much they’ve changed over the decades. There’s a huge difference between the #1 song at the end of 1973 (“Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” by Tony Orlando and Dawn) and the #1 song at the end of 2013 (“Thrift Shop” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis).

Not that there isn’t good music from each decade, but let’s be honest, the 1980s weren’t exactly as creatively lush as the 1970s. As much as I hate to say it, the early 2010s aren’t blowing me away either.

So, if you had to pick one decade that you’d say had the best music, which would it be? Vote below!
