    The 80's were probably my favourite music Era but it had nothing to do with all the New Romantic and SAW output in the slightest!

    I started the 80's being into NWOBHM and Punk, then got into the Thrash Metal scene as it was breaking, started buying records with pocket & paper round money, was buying Metallica's 'Ride The Lightning', Slayer's 'Show No Mercy', Anthrax 'Spreading the Disease' as they came out, was into all the Teutonic Thrash bands, with a smattering of Venom and Bathory chucked in for good measure. First gig was Iron Maiden at Hammersmith Odeon in Oct 86, then was seeing bands in London pretty much every week up to 1990/91 when Grunge effectively started killing off Metal!

    And quite a few of those bands that emerged in MY 80's, are still going, which is great!

    I have been thinking about this and although the 80s was not my favourite era, there was a lot of stuff I really liked from back then, Ska, Reggae and the early rap and Electronic music too.

    Just recently I have been having debates about Vinyl, a lot of my mates are DJs or love their decks, whereas I have never really liked it, I was glad to see it phased out somewhat, it as always too bulky and too easily damaged for my liking.
    The only good thing I liked about it was the art that was sometimes on the sleeves, but even still that was not enough to make me a fan, this new age of digital music is right up my alley, I like being able to fit so much music on such a small device.

    As some have mentioned- there have been contributions throughout the years and there is always a few memorable ones even in the lean years such as the 80's and currently.

    A few artists/groups always breaks the trend and creates something sensational that makes it into the classics from that era. Til this day I still have vinyls as well as CD's and memory sticks or external HD's and l love almost every type of genre and listen to most and genuinely believe taht a day without music is like a day without laughter....not worth it!

    If music be the food of the soul....then please play on!!

    Also very good. Although ...r&b and rock n roll influences still there from Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry. Listen to Chuck Berry's Sweet Little 16 and then the Beach Boys Surfin USA. Not saying the period wasn't good, it was amazing for music too. Like my feelings for the years 1975 - 1985. But Muddy and Chuck ... their influence goes right through to the present day.

    I would say that every era has something unique! It would be impossible to say that only one is the best. Music itself is amazing!
    To want to, is to be able to.

    And from the first page...

    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.
    Couldn't have said it better myself, I totally agree with you lucybusy.

    Incidentally, welcome to the Forum!

    Yes indeed.

    My first influential era was..
    Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis, Eddie Cochran, Ray Charles, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Duane Eddy, Gene Vincent, Everly Brothers, Fats Domino, Four Seasons, Chet Atkins, Joe Pass, The Shadows.

    When all the above came along and started kicking open the doors of popular music, we said goodbye to the likes of Doris Day, Dickie Valentine, Dorothy Squires, Alma Colgan and the rest.... and the novelty songs like 'How Much Is That Doggy In the Window'.... goodbye to Max Bygraves and 'I'm a Blue Toothbrush, You're a Pink Toothbrush,' all all the other silly stuff.

    The really significant thing about the period was - even though much of it can sound a bit 'old hat' to today's youngsters - we were first to hear it. It was different, it was raw, and it was new and exciting. I remember being round at my cousin's place, and she'd just bought a new single and put it on the record player (was it a Dansette, I wonder?).
    I jumped up. 'What's that?'
    'Elvis Presley,' she said. 'All Shook Up.'

    And then we had...
    Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Small Faces, The Who, Byrds, Beach Boys, Sam Cooke, Arethra Franklin, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, The Animals, Cream, Creedence Clearwater Revival, David Bowie, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix,
    All new.. inventive... stuff we'd never heard before, and we loved it.

    And then hard on their heels... more and more and more
    10cc, Devo, Steely Dan, Led Zeppelin, Ian Dury, Madness, XTC....

    You really should stop now, before you start frothing at the mouth and falling over sideways.
