I'm just trying to think of any good music that came out in the 80s ...
Hmmmm I'm having some difficulty. I quite like Franky goes to Hollywood. Pink Floyd the wall. The Prodigy? Was that right at the end of the 80s? I'm starting to struggle a little now. I suppose there's quite a lot of good hip hop in there.
Whereas the 70s produced my favourite album Yes - Close to the Edge Oh yes, the progressive rock concept album.
I really enjoyed the 90s - The Orb, the whole ambient thing. More progressive electronic music, techno, house, acid etc.
If we are going for 10-year spans, 1965-1975 and 1985-1995. And, of course, the entire expanse of human history before 1900 is a goldmine. It's hard to argue with 5,000 years of civilization. I dig classical and baroque stuff.
Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"
