PostSubject: The Decade List   Tue Jan 03, 2012 1:34 pm

In a couple of the other threads there have been discussions on music from different decades, so I thought I would start a list of favorite songs by decade, from the 1950s to the 2010s. I'll start:

1950s - "Johnny B. Goode" - Chuck Berry (1958)

1960s - "Like a Rolling Stone" - Bob Dylan (1965)

1970s - "Born to Run" - Bruce Springsteen (1975)

1980s - "Boys of Summer" - Don Henley (1984)

1990s - "Mary Jane's Last Dance" - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (1993)

2000s - "Red At Night" - The Gaslight Anthem (2007)

2010s - "Bring It On" - The Gaslight Anthem (2010)

Great idea! This was difficult for me, but this is what I've got

1950s: Chuck Berry - Johnny B. Goode
(Apologies for copying you, but it doesn't get any better Chuck Berry for the 50s)

1960s: The Beatles - A Day in the Life

1970s: Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here

1980s: Guns N' Roses - Paradise City
(This was the hardest to choose because I'm not a huge fan of 80s music)

1990s: Jimmy Eat World - Goodbye Sky Harbor

2000s: The National - Fake Empire

2010s: Death Cab for Cutie - Doors Unlocked and Open

I expect that if I redid this list at some point then a few of these would change, but I think this is what it would currently be

Nice choices, Camus! Wish You Were Here is totally brilliant, and it breaks my heart every time I hear it.

Also, I love Paradise City! It's my favorite GNR song.

Very creative, Harbortown! The Platters surprised me. I think that's what is so great about these lists, there is always a variety. Very Happy

Cheers Very Happy

Wish You Were Here is by far my favourite Floyd album. I wish I'd been born 30 years earlier so I'd have had a chance to see them.

1950s - "Jailhouse Rock" - Elvis (1957)

1960s - "Volunteers" - Jefferson Airplane (1969)

1970s - "Sweet Virginia" - Rolling Stones (1972)

1980s - "The River" - Bruce Springsteen (1981)

1990s - "You Know You're Right" - Nirvana (Not Released until 2002, but recorded in 1994)

2000s - "Even Cowgirls Get The Blues" - The Gaslight Anthem (2008)

2010s - "Honolulu Blues" - Craig Finn (2011)

Almost tempted to put Mother of Earth by The Gun Club in as my 80's choice, and the 90's one probably deserves a lot more of a thought, but off the top of my head.

I don't think anyone's list is totally set in stone because music is so emotional. If your mood changes, your song choice could change too. Other than my choices for 60s and 2010s, my songs are subject to change too. Very Happy

Wooot. Cool I had to put Born To Run on there cause that song and album drew me to rock'n'roll in the first place. Johnny B. Goode because it's just such a classic.

I have loved Johnny B. Goode ever since I heard Michael J. Fox singing it in Back to the Future. Very Happy

This is way too hard. But I'm going to try it anyway.

1950's: Elvis Presley - Hound Dog (1956)

1960's: Bob Dylan - Don't Think Twice, It's All Right (1963)

1970's: Bruce Springsteen - Backstreets (1975)

1980's: The Smiths - There Is A Light That Never Goes Out (1986)

1990's: Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (1998)

2000's: Social Distortion - Reach For The Sky (2004)

2010:s Arcade Fire - Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) (2010)

This list will probably look entirely different tomorrow.
