What do you believe are the two best decades for music? (Because just choosing one would be much too difficult for some music enthusiasts). For this thread, we're only counting the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and 2010s. You can either rank them all to your personal preference or just simply state your two favourite decades.

I have noticed that the grand majority of my favourite releases were recorded and released in either the 1980s or the 1990s. So those are the two decades that I select as being the greatest (I can't decide which one I like better though, so it's a tie for now). Below are my complete rankings:

1st: 1980s or 1990s
2nd: 1990s or 1980s
3rd: 1970s or 2000s
4th: 2000s or 1970s
5th: 1960s
6th: 2010s
7th: 1950s


They say people's favorite music is what happens to be popular when they are teenagers. This is true in my case, as I was a teenager in the 1980s.

However, I once bought a bunch of CDs from a man who was eighties year old. He had thousands of CDs and had bought just about every song that had been a top Billboard hit ever. He told me he believed the 1980s was the best decade for music ever. 🤘
