  3. Well I can't vote because I listen to music from nearly all of those era's. Nothing really pre 60's though. There is to much great music out there to limit yourself to one decade :)
  4. 80's for me. As corny as the 80's were, they -- along with the early 90's -- were when Metal was in its prime. No, not Van Halen or Motley Crue, I mean REAL metal, like Slayer, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, etc.

    I also have some stuff from the 70's, like Judas Priest and Sabbath, all of Queen, and then I also listen to Wagner, Holst, Pink Floyd, John Coltrane.

    So I listen to more than Metal, but it's still my favorite genre.

    I had to click all of them. Everything from Strauss waltzes to Red Hot Chili Peppers gets me going. I have a particular fondness for Green Day and Weird Al. Also 10cc, Elton John, and of course Black Sabbath. MoTown is probably my overall favourite sound, though.
  8. I selected the 70's and 90's off the top of my head but really, I listen to every era because they all have great music.

    It's hard to choose. I grew up listening to country, blues and Mo-town, and by the time I was playing in bands (1960's) I was often playing covers of songs that had been blues songs that had become popular by being covered by British bands.

    I bought the CD based on my opinion of this one song. Highly recommended.

  12. I thought late 90s were gold. But if I had really choose then all time faviourates would be 50s, 60s and 70s.

    I've found that the more I listen to new music, the less I like the old stuff. There's so many fantastic new bands!

    Guess that's one advantage of having a teenager. She's always feeding me new music.

    But I have a great love for bluegrass, too.

    lisab, if you don't have Allison Krause & Union Station's live double CD, run out and buy it now! It is possibly the best live recording in years, comparable to Dire Straits "On the Night" in virtuosity and recording quality.
  15. today's music come with a video and I'm concerned that they're trying to attract listerners more to the soft porn they show rather than the music. The music as a result reflects it and is becoming more porn music. Though I haven't listened to a lot of recent music but just an observation I picked up during random views at music channels.

    I was a teen when MTV made its debut, and I thought it was the stupidest idea ever conceived! I couldn't sit still long enough to watch videos...I figured it was a fad that wouldn't last.

    I haven't seen an music video in probably 25 years!

    There's a lot of good new music. I can't speak to the quality of the videos, though.
  17. Used to play in a 'garage' band when I was a kid, so had to go with 60s and 70s.

    I love AK & US! I don't have that CD, so thanks. I'll definately check it out.

    Lately I've been listening to old stuff, from the Carter Family. Much of it was recorded back in the 1920s and 30s, and a lot of the recordings are really bad quality - very scratchy. Great music, though, at least to my ears.

    BTW, June Carter was from the Carter Family - she married Johnny Cash.

    When I listen to the radio, I listen to an Indie/Alternative music station. I like the new stuff, although I have some odd old favorites (on my list).

    Yeah, that's the kind of new music that really appeals to me, too.

    I had an AM radio as a kid, and I listened to it every night when I went to bed. After sunset, my cheesy little radio could pick up megastations in Wheeling, WV (country), Albany, NY (lots of rock, esp British invasion), and Buffalo, NY (Motown, all the way!). The stations in central Maine were OK during the day, but big AM stations ruled at night.
