Of these... What's your favorite decade for music? [View all]

This isn't a contest. There's no right or wrong answer. Everyone has a favorite... so this poll is just to get feel for the decade that people in this group prefer (or listen to most often). Which one is yours?

PS: DU-Rec this thread and maybe it will make it to the "Greatest" page where others will see it (ie: people who don't normally visit this group.)
