    i grew up in an era where the music industry contained artists such as sade, talk talk, rem, waterboys, inxs , police, jam, thompson twins, duran, spandau, jackson, prince, cyndi and many many more. there is no way in our life time we will see another era that will even come close to this.

    Personally i think the 50's 60's 70's and 90's are all far superior to the 80's, music wise.

    Nowhere near as influential as the 70's or the 60's. Some of the groups you mentioned were not really that great to be honest.

    Yes, indeed. Hard to compare it with the 50's as this is like another era music wise but definitely no up there with 90's, let alone with the 60s or 70's. Probably better than then 00's though.

    Haha!

    I was a child of the 80's and couldn't stand much of it at all. I preferred the less mainstream stuff in the 80s or it was just 60s and 70s music. It was a breath of fresh air when the 90s came along.

    I recall the 90's the best. I was a teen , so Oasis, The Stone Roses, Pulp etc were big for me. I wish I was around to experience a few era's hough. I would love to have experienced the big change of the 80's, to be in your pomp for that must have been something!!

    To me 40's to 70's real classic music moving into different styles at the beginning of the 70s, with genuine talent and hard work to get there

    Then 80' & 90's more brands of music a lot of fun, seem less talented musicians, near end 90s music industry changing

    00's manufactured TV reality bands, less talented musicians, less hard work, computerised voices to make the music sound better and other technology to make sound

    It pretty much depends on what era you grew up in really.
    My favourite music was between late 70s, to early to mid 80s coz that's when I was a teenager and going out and having a great time.
    The Jam, The Clash, The Undertones, Buzzcocks, Specials, The Smiths, The pogues etc, too many to mention.

    There was also a lot of rubbish music around, but I didn't listen to much of that.

    Yeah,I associate a lot of the eighties's stuff with happy memories.
    Glastonbury,going out with my friends four nights a week,almost getting trampled to death by two blokes who were having a 'don't call my girlfriend a ****' moment...........
    Good times.

    This site has it as mid 60s to mid 70s and I am inclined to go along with their assessment.

    http://thegreatestyearinmusic.xpn.org

    In terms of the 80s it was the decade of Stock Aitken and Waterman with hits like I should be so lucky by Rick Astley and am never gonna give you up by Kylie

    I can't even name a memorable song from the past decade.

    You used to know what was in the charts.

    I couldn't even tell you what was number 1, or if they even have a chart anymore.

    The kids have to go onto the net to get their tunes now.

    I think it's too close to call because every decade has brought us some classic music, it's often the case that you just have to know where to look for it.

    Despite the apparently horrendous nature of the current music industry, there are still pockets of absolute brilliance. For example, I discover many new artists via 'jools Holland' shows, which always offer a tremendous mix of styles and genres.

    Ultimately I honestly believe there is new music being created that is of potentially classic quality, and consequently I just celebrate each decade for the timeless contributions they have produced.

    I don't really have one. Good music in all eras.

    If I had to say my favorites probably late 60's early 70's, early mid 80's, and early mid 90's.

    My favorite album is Graceland and that was in the 80's but I'm alternating between Simon & Garfunkel, Bruce Springsteen, The National and folk-punk right now.
