    The 80's genre because it's fun, funky and original. To think that the King and Queen of Pop Music started in this era. I also love New Waveand Brit Pop which was also popularized in this time. And I think most of the pop music and songs of today are revived from this genre.

    80s, 90s and part of early 2000. Music sang during this times were more original, informative and groovy, these days what you get is fake and by popular demand which of course reduces quality drastically.

    I'm a 70's  & 80's music junkie. My whole music collection is mostly based around those eras of musical talent.

    What I tend to listen to the most are my favorite bands I grew up with in the 90's. My favorite era for music though was the 60's. I love the motown sound of the Supremes, The Temptations, etc. Such an awesome time for quality hit singles, classic songs that still hold up strongly today.

    I would have to say the 60s and early 70s. The folk era, Dylan, Peter, Paul and Mary, Simon and Garfunkel, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Don McClain, etc, just cannot be beat.
    The 70s gave us Elton John, Carly Simon,Carol King and other greater singers-writers.

    Have to throw in two oldies:
    Nat King Cole--does not get any better
    Della Reese--she could really sell a song.

    The 60s, 70s, and 80s are my favorite oldies. I loved the early Beatles, the Monkees, Beach Boys, Partridge Family, Rolling Stones, Sonnie & Cher, the Carpenters, and Elvis. And this is only a few from the rock n roll selections, I also liked the early country music like Sonnie James, Jim Reeves, Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Charlie Pride, Dolly Pardon, Donna Fargo, Loretta Lynn, etc. etc. etc.

    The 80's for me. I loved hair metal! Even if Axl Rose is a jerk!

    I must agree the 70s-80s  r& b; but I enjoy the 90s gospel and the 2010-present praise and worship.

    With out a doubt the mid 60's and early 70's Rock n Roll.  I listen to 70's greatest hits daily. Todays music doesn't compare. Talented musicians today are  challenged by a higher level of difficulty because so many variations of chords have been used.

    Definitely the 90's.  Grunge, alternative, and the explosion of hip hop.
