    I love the 50's and early 60's especially American Doo wop and Brits like Billy Fury, I have loved this even when I was a teenager in the 70's when everybody was into disco and soul. I dont mind being different.

    @woodbine...great taste woodbine, I love american rock n roll, uptempo doo wop....I was different too coz at age 12 I was really into Phil Spector productions...absolutely adore all the old music, tends to be more obscure stuff I listen to...when I first ever heard 'Be my baby' by the Ronettes at age 12 I knew this was the music for me....that drum intro...WOW!

    It depends on My mood.  I may say the 1980s because it was the first decade I really started listening to music.  I grew up in a household of eclectic music. Whether it was my parents listening to Show Music (Roger's and Hammerstein etc) or various others listening to Jazz, Blues or even Alvin Stardust.

    I grew up in the 80's and really love 80's power ballads and 80's rock music!

    I was a teenager in the 70's so no contest here, lol! I do like the 90's rave and hardcore a lot though. There isn't much music that I don't like except classical.

    00's are just all the cheesy songs, but I do love most music!
