    ...yes, ANOTHER music thread!

    This is a conversation that Joe and I had on the drive to Boston a few weeks ago, and some of todays threads made me think of it.

    So...what songs do you remember most...what pops in your head first when you think 80's? 90's? What about the decade we're in now?


    Edit: I'm not putting mine up yet...I wanted to see if other people had the same things as I did. Funnily enough, for the 90's, both Joe and I said one song, and it was the same one! :lol:

    Edit again: This is NOT your FAVORITE songs from that decade....in fact, you could hate the song....this is what songs do you think will be the most remembered when you say "80's music" ect.

    tough one...10 years and so many bands with so many songs.

    90's - Nirvana...Teen Spirit

    Have no clue about the others, I lived in a musical black hole (midwest) of classic rock in the 80's with no internet.

    Music since the 70's is not all that memorable.

    Well, probably people will remember overplayed, overproduced pop songs, which are usually crap.

    "Groovy Kind of Love" by Phil Colins reminds me of Middle School Dances. I just think of that everytime I hear that song!

    Btw, I should mention that Gomer's pick for the 90's is exactly what came to my mind (and Joe's) too! :lol:

    I'm with the tree hugger on the 90's pick.

    70's - Barracuda - Heart
    80's - Relax - Frankie Goes to Hollywood
    90's - Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
    00's - no clue... I've been in the same black hole for a while. If I had to throw one out there it would be Mambo #5 by that guy that sings that song... ;)

    ...we both said the Nirvana song, too. :p I guess the 90's is fairly agreed upon. :)

    That is a brave statement. Personally I believe that like everything else music has progressed since the 70's. Looking at the current players in the field will certainly prove that.

    To answer the question; Devo and the Ramones pop into my head for the 80's. Sonic Youth embodies the 90's for me. Neil Young spans all generations. The decade we are in now rules! We are all about drum & bass and breaks. Love Pendulum on the D&B side and Aquasky on the Breaks side. Greatest band of 2006 is The Roots.
