    I cannot comprehend why Bob Dylan gets on a lists like this. Or maybe I do. ;) He could not sing, could not play and composed painfully stupid stuff.

    Steve Wilson is the modern day Bach IMO. An oldie...

    I quite liked his early stuff; very folksy. But later? Total drug stuffed crap.

    As much as Disco is despised and rightfully so, it did bring back dancing

    With the introduction of the Twist in the early 60s and stoner Rock Music shortly after, couples dancing disappeared. Just look at swing during the 40 s and compare it to what substituted for dancing in the late 60s

    Disco thrived because women wanted to dance again

    To me, some of the best country music was made in both the 1980s and 1990s.

    God bless you always!!!

    I'm going to likely upset everyone! I believe the best overall decade was the 1950's. I believe this because I was a small child then and well remember the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. The reason I feel the 50's was the best decade was because of the end of World War II a lot of technical advances appeared and sound recording was no exception. HiFidelity and Stereo both appeared as did 33 1/3 rpm and 45's.

    As a result there was a reawakening of classical music. Unfortunately much of the music of the 40's, 30's, 20's etc., was stored away or lost; however, people were then listening to EVERYTHING and the radio programs included a combination or easy listening, rock-a-billy, movie themes, pop, rock'n roll, jazz, funny and band music...

    There was seemingly and endless variety of music found even during one program. Debbie Reynolds, Doris Day, Johnny Mathis, Elvis, Bill Haley, Nat King Cole, and even David Rose and his Orchestra might be played on the very same network. It all depended on what listeners requested or what might be considered the neatest and latest sound.

    The music was happy, sad, lovely, patriotic, wild and neatto --- real cool man... There were bands, groups, trios, duets, choral, orchestrated, and crooners. The 50's had it all and in good measure. As an example, here is how 1950 started out.
