best era for music

Am I getting old, but there has not been a song in the charts for a while that really got my moving or thinking.

Apart from what u waiting for by gwen stefanie

I prefer 1984-1990

is music since become worse,

Where has the the look of love -spandau ballet,
china in your hands tpau all gone.

Why-bronski beat,

Male stripper-man to man meets man parish

Always on my mind -pet shop boys

    It's an age thing definately. I hear myself saying things like "Is that what they call music nowadays?" and "There's not even a tune to it - just a lot of shouting" and I'm only 26.

    No I mean the blurs and coldplay and such r meant to produce fantastic songs,but to me they r weak songs, that u will forget.

    I think artists today have run out of ideas.

    Ps the sixties was crap, seventies cheesy, except for the electric light orchestra and the bee gees

    Well i'm an old tw@t and thought the eighties was good music but listening to DJ Tiesto and Armin Van Buren is much better though the days of throwing pills down me neck in The Hacienda has long gone!

    I guess if coldplay etc was the first kind of music you've ever got into i.e when a teenager it will always be sort of special to you, you kind of reminisce (sp?) about your lost youth awww so anything you hear later on just wouldn't match up. People seem to like what was around when they first got into music. Having said that, I liked some amount of sh1te when I was a teenager that I won't admit to now!

    Love 80s electro with a passion but IMO the best era for music is right now.

    But yes, you will generally only hear crap if you listen to chart music.

    Every decade, every YEAR had both it's timeless classics, and it's stinkers. That said, age DOES have some impact...the only stuff I like before the '60's is Classic/Jazz etc, possibly because it's the start of the era of mass-produced phonographs...

    I'm actually in shock that anyone outside the M25 actually remembers Man Parrish..!!!

    hey i have the 12 inch picture disk worht say £40 and got it played at a nightclub last month, a lot of folks remmeber it,

    it was sooooooooooo goooooooood

    Albeit a gay song
    Maybe some younger MT members have to hear it, I would say it is as good as "knock on wood" 12 inch version

    or "electrica salza sa" or maybe "born to be alive"

    Man Parrish is a classic. Mr Sozay is right. Still plenty of great music being made. I've aways been interested in "dance/electronic" music whatever that is. Kraftwerk, chicago house, hardcore/rave/jungle, hardhouse, trance drum and bass etc I like it all

    If you like drum and bass you should love 1xtra. Flight, Bailey, LDouble and Sappo play loads of great stuff imo. Still playing tunes that send a shiver down the spine.

    80's without a doubt...some great heavy stuff.....the start of prodigy and other big dancey type anthems as well as electro and some great vocal talent came from that era (some of the vocal talent was about at the end of the 70's but wasnt really big until early 80's...ie alison moyet/andy bell/duran duran/spandau ballet etc etc)
    At the end of the 80's there was some real dark stuff like NIN and some mental rock stuff like zodiac mindwarp.
    Loads of great music!

    Late 70s and early 1980s.

    Punk and Oi! and some classic heavy metal was in the charts. Bands such as Cockney Rejects, Motorhead, Think Lizzy, SHAM 69, Elvis Costello, The Jam, The Clash, Bad Manners, The Specials, Saxon, Iron Maiden.

    I am an old git by the way.

    there has always been a lot of good stuff and a lot of middle of the road pop cr*p. I would say the best era for music would be now, because we have access to all of the music of the past, the net has made it easier to get the music you want. There are more tv stations (with digital) and radio stations playing a range of music! There are more styles of music out there now. For example, rock music now ranges from the old-skool britpop beatles-esq fluffy type rock to the loud, heavy, energised screamings of System of a down. meanwhile there are still bands out there playing old skool rock'n'roll!


    In terms of the music in the top 40. I would say the mid-nineties, the INdie bands coming back into the forefront of mucis. Much coverage of Glastonbury, reading festival etc. Loads of real musicians playing REAL music rather than computers doing it all instead!

    I think music in general is improving all the time.

    I can see that as a really, really bad thing!

    The no1 reason my computers produce musc more than people do. I think it's taken the heart out of a lot of pop music.
