Thread Name: Which has been the best decade for music
Subject: RE: Which has been the best decade for music
I have found things to love and loathe from every decade in which I've lived, as well as from decades before my time. The question begs such a personal and subjective answer that it presents a conundrum for more than two or three people.
I know that I tend to like identifiable melody lines, understandable and reasonably literate lyrics and performances that are thoughtful and passionate, if not polished. I love harmony and variety and music that makes me think as well as feel. I can find all of those qualities in some measure in each decade.
