Without question, the sixties was my favorite era in music. Bob Dylan , Simon and Gurfunkel, Moody Blues, Joan Baez. This was music that had words that really meant something. Can any piece match Dylan's Blowing in the Wind, or The Times They are a Changing? Or, Simon and Garfunkel's The Sounds of Silence, and The Boxer. I still play sixties music and it hasn't lost it's magic.
I was teenager in the late 60's, but I have to say I think a lot of the pop music in the 80's and early 90's was pretty good. It was couple of "notches" before my time, but I think there was something very nice about the Doo Wop (sp?) era.
As a little kid, when I heard "Jailhouse Rock" I was fascinated! It sure was real music! Then onwards to Cliff Richards, Billy Vaughn, Mario Lanza ... Flash forward ... Rolling Stones, Jethro Tull, Led Zep, Deep Purple, Bob Dylan, Bee Gees, Chicago, Three Dog Nite ... flash forward ... Madonna. Period.
All music is wonderful in itself, don't you think? Even some of the 40's had their day in movies and now on cd's. I prefer 50's and 60's...basically soft rock, smooth jazz and a little of country and classical...but in reality, I think it all has a place in our lives at some point.
I have a real soft spot for the 80s. ::sigh:: But basically anything before 2000. I don't know what happened, but about 2000 it seems like they dropped a "dumb bomb" on the music industry. I blame MTV. Or rather what it became.
BTW, on a similar note, remember when music videos were like mini movies? They actually told stories?
For me it would have to be the 60's and the 70's. A lot of music genre's were born in that time, it was a time of birth and creation in the artist movement, that has given us the music we now enjoy today.
Seeing as how I've been only alive 22 years didn't get to experienced first had half of the music generations. My favourite music eras though are prolly 70's punk rock movement becuase it was the first stepping stone away from mainstream. Which then leads me to my love of the passive nihilist way of grunge in the early 90's. I hate the word "indie" rock becuase to me honestly it doesn't really matter if you are on an independent or major record label. I do love the whole alternative/ "indie" rock sound in general ranging from early 90's to current date. Then closley relating punk I enjoy 80's new wave music and sound. I like anything pretty much raw to sh*t musically... don't care if it is "bad" or "good". I like the mod crappe.
oh boy, sabreblade hit the nail on the head, what happened? i grew up in the 60's and listen to music from the 1920's to new and must say that every musical form has its greatness and a whole lot of stinkers.
With all the good rocknroll threads popping up on the forums recently, I figured a few people must be into (or were at one time) punk rock. So, I included my personal top5's for the genre for the 70's and 80's and hoped...
Okay, I'm sure everyone has probably seen both versions by now, so which is the better movie between the original and the remake?Here's the criteria to judge by:Who's the better Ren MacCormack? Kevin Bacon or...
Just out of curiosity, who is your favorite band or person? It must be a musical professional.I absolutely love music, and I have several favorites. But, I'm interested in what my fellow hubbers enjoy.
