Thoes arent centuries, thoes are decades.

Centuries are every 100 years, thus: 2000's, 1900's, 1800's. Decades are 10 years.

Basicall, you should've answered "20th and 21st centuries".

I know, i write complete the years to make explicit the question... however its not sane to ask what century... could i talk about XI century music by decades??????? ha ha

Maybe i forgot to put 1920 for charleston and 1900 for ragtime!!

60's...and then a jump to the 90's. The eighties sucked, and so did disco.

i know that people will disagree, but 90's has divercity. Alternative 90's music didnt seem to be caught down in any particular trend or movement.. no matter what style of music you are after, there are hundreds of amazing bands that fill.

While saying this, il admit i did have to think about it alot.. 60's was to insignificant. 00's dont count yet. 80's were fucking amazing, and prolly wil win the poll. 70's came very close.

All of my fave bands are from the 90's, and im into alot of music from all of these decades.

Definitely the 80's and 90's - 1780's and 90's that is. This was classic age of classical music- Mozart, and an emerging Schubert/ Beethoven.

Now is the time for all good Americans to come to the aid of their Country

1980-85
1991-92
1995-96
1999
2001-03

I'd love to elabourate, but there's this huge pile of work staring me out.

Well, 1989 was when the mainstream went pants, and alternative took over. I'd say 1991 was the best ever year for music, there was a band starting-up every week. Having said that, 1994 and 1997-2000 (half of the 90's) were dire. More style than substance.

2001-03 have picked-up sharply, but nothing that's any good makes it into the mainstream. Journals like NME are slow to catch on as well.

Harold Faltermeyer did the "Axl F. theme" while Bob Seger did "Shakedown" for the sequel.

You'll get a variety of answers to any favorite era due mainly to the fact that your experiences during any given era lend a great deal in the factor of like/hate.
For example, I love music from all decades although I had the most fun and best memories during/while listening to 80's rock.
I had the fantasy of going back so I could relive the music of that decade but then realized it was the times themselves that I loved.

@siddhartha_one : the 60's insignificant???????? Huh??????

There was great music from all those decades. I really can't choose one or two.

It's been said that I could start an arguement in an empty room.....I see no reason to disbelieve this.

well, when i say insignificant, i mean there was less to choose from, and less greatness about then in all the other decades. Simply because the music industry is a far bigger thing nowdays.

Quite. The beauty about 2003 is you have everything new and everything that's gone before at your disposal. Sometimes I don't know if that's good or bad though, the choice is bewildering.

I guess not everybody has that font.

Anway. I agree to Xerxes and and Cylob (good years, Cy).

Let's not forget the jazz era though. Hmmm. Autumn Leaves calls me this morning....

this one. because there's still the potential for music as good and original as in all the decades preceding it - and you won't have heard this stuff before.

Everything from the 70's to the present was influenced in some way by the music of the 50's and 60's. That's when rock and pop were born. That would make the 60's the most important decade in rock music. It was also the best in my opinion.

wait, wasn't the 60's the beatles, hendrix, santana, woodstock, etc? or was that the seventies? Yes I forget, yes I was born in the 80's and except for a few songs, I hate most of the music from the decade of my birth.

Quite so. But I assumed we were talking about contempory music here, given the decade choices presented by richardharris. I think the decades of the Baroque Era (1600 to 1750) were probably the best decades in music. And Baroque was a definite influence on the Beatles.

Specifically, the emergance of one man: Bach, whose musical ideas set the entire western world on a different course. (musically) Remember: the Baroque era ends on his death year for a reason.
