I don't know many of the songs there by name but I'm guessing I'd know more when I get around to listening to them. I agree though, the period from 1989-1995 for me is the best period in music. Acts like U2, R.E.M., Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alanis Morrissette, Smashing Pumpkins, Templ Of The Dog, Soundgarden, Blind Melon, Cranberries, all around and at their best.

And I agree with the two choices you picked for R.E.M. Man on the Moon is the R.E.M. song I'd pick if I had to choose one song to define them(certainly to define early 90's R.E.M.) and Country Feedback is one of their best. Especially the live version you've chosen.

Do you want me to make a second thread for 1966-1976? I don't think the forum could handle it without crashing.

Already working on it. Will be a little different since there aren't music videos from that era.

Change it to 1967-1977 and I'd completely agree.

1977 had two of the best albums ever in my opinion.

Neither can be worth giving up Revolver and Pet Sounds among others from 66.

Plus, by 1977, prog rock was at its nadir, and punk rock was at its beginnings, which has never been one of my favorite genres. For me, it's definitely '66-'76.

Actually since I posted that I thought about the second half of the 70's through first half of the 80's and I think 1975-1985 is actually the best period of music. I'd give up the Beatles, Doors, Hollies, Beach Boys and others for a time that I'd consider the most creative and featuring the greatest period of mainstream and underground music.

1998-2008 had 2008, which is the best year in all of music ever. However, U2 sold out in 1998. Hmm...quite the conundrum.

Ridiculous.

The time period had some great music, no argument, but not worth giving up the Beatles, Zep, Doors, Who, Floyd, Beach Boys, Stones, Hendrix, etc. Not by a long shot.

And The Velvet Underground, early Springsteen, Dylan, Nick Drake, Marvin Gaye, Bowie, The Kinks, PARLIAMENT, etc...

Some of the Zeppelin's best songs came from 1975 and after. Floyd's best albums came 1975 and after (Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall and The Final Cut).

Damn straight.

Excepting the asses at Pitchfork who think that Brian Wilson was the only truly good thing to come out of the 60's, it's pretty much unanimous that the mid 60's to the mid 70's was the greatest period for popular music thus far.

Yeah but you get Springsteen's masterpeice in Born Of Run and with Bowie you get Station To Station plus the Berlin trilogy.
