Good music and time have nothing to do with one another!
I'll buy that, but good music and good times have a strong bond. The music I'm fondest of is directly linked to the times I was happiest. Of course the opposite is true for Country music. LOL

Another good point but good music always makes me either happy. Not just in one decade or another. Like I said earlier, the trip hop scene has me happy now. That weekend players CD is just awesome. The girls voice is kinda familiar but I can't figure out who she sounds like. (http://www.ffrr.com/artists/weekendplayers/index.mgi2) Can anyone place it?

Well, the description gives her name as Rachel Foster, which of course means nothing to me.

I think that there's kind of an Annie Lenox quality to her voice. I wonder what it sounds like when it's not overproduced and hidden by all those effects.

I bought this the last time you were selling it, so you've done your job here. (And I appreciate it, thanks!)

I like her voice, except where it's run though one of those pitch correction devices. I'm allergic to those things.

I think what she shares with Annie Lennox is a womanly quality: mature-sounding and has depth.

That's true though. I only really said that to cover The Cure's 90's blunders (with the exception of "Wish", which is perfectly decent).

Depeche Mode continued to make good records, especially "Songs Of Faith & Devotion".

Googling says the first date is the Beatles' Ed Sullivan appearance and the last is the Stones at Altamont.
I am a huge British Invasion fan and an Anglophile in general. For me, if it's English then it's good (I ride a Triumph for goodness sakes!). I picked those dates because it seems to define an era, but ultimately the standout musicians are English in any era.

The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and the like loom larger in my life than The Beach Boys, for example. In the 70's, the decade in which I came of age, I was very much into the progressive rock stuff; Yes and Genesis, mostly. Boston and Aerosmith and Springsteen; not so much. The 80's were when I got rolling with music; The Cure, The Smiths, Elvis Costello, Squeeze, XTC, Crowded House (not English but close, I suppose), U2 (same).

There are musicians still working and still creating compelling music from the 70's and 80's that I still enjoy; Neil Finn, Peter Gabriel, Elvis C and XTC are still around and still making creatively vital music. U2 comes and goes but they hit a high point with thier last CD, I suppose.

So, to sum up, I agree that good music isn't really tied to a decade. For me it's connected to a time zone.

We're in the same zone here! There's something about the Brit sensibility.

It continues on into today, with Blur, Radiohead, Supergrass, Dido...

The Smiths, New Order, Depeche Mode, The Cure, .... Sure, some of these bands continued on into the 90's, but they weren't as essential.
In my opinion the 70s and earlier were BEST for music..... In the 80s digital started ruining the sound.....


Not much from the 80s I like............

I have an Amazon tap. At night when Amanda and I sit around playing Yahtzee and drinking beer, we pick music by year. Alexa, play music from 1970. So far we agree that the years of our birth, 1970 and 1978 respectively have the best music of that decade. 1976 is right out.

"Alexa, play music from 1978."

"Playing music from 1978."

nope.

the formula works:

half your age plus 7

I'm 46.
23+7 is 30. she's 39.
