1971

Che and I were playing some nice music tonite.

When I realised something and ran with it.

1971.

The greatest year in rock music?

If it was New Years Eve, 1971, and I was playing an 8 track mix of the best tunes from the year, I'd have possibly the greatest 1 year mix tape(s) ever.

Check it out:

David Bowie: Changes
Marvin Gaye: What's Going On
The Faces: Stay With Me
T.Rex: Bang A Gong
The Who: Won't Get Fooled Again
Harry Nilsson: Coconut
Badfinger: Day After Day
MC5: Baby Won't Ya
Carley Simon: Anticipation
The Rolling Stones: Brown Sugar
Led Zeppelin: Rock and Roll
John Lennon: Oh Yoko!
Badfinger: Baby Blue
Rod Stewart: Maggie May
Harry Nilsson: Without You
David Bowie: Life On Mars
MC5: Sister Anne
John Lennon: Imagine
Don McLean: American Pie
The Rolling Stones: Wild Horses
The Doors: LA Woman
Elton John: Tiny Dancer
Funkadelic:You And Your Folks, Me And My Folks
Pink Floyd: Fearless
T.Rex: Jeepster
Joni Mitchell: Carey
Led Zeppelin: Black Dog
The Who: Baba O'Riley
Elton John: Levon
Janis Joplin:Levon Me and Bobby McGee
Black Sabbath: Sweet Leaf
Marvin Gaye: Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)

For fucks sake. I'm probably missing a ton of shit as well. Did Dylan release in 71? I know I left off "Stairway To Heaven". That's a list of great tunes. Imagine that, hearing all those songs while they were less than a year old?

Someone name a better year.

Perhaps 1968, Brau. Probably more from the events of that year than the tunes but still.

Though you can't go wrong with 1971.
The Yes Album and Meddle. Pure prog rock.

Or 1987.

Sadly, there is no R&B to match Marvin Gaye.

It's an art form that's gone to complete shit.

No, Rap/Hip Hop doesn't count.

Great R&B: RIP.

I missed that Yes record.

Another notch for '71

Thinking about, Nursery Cryme by Genesis came out in 1971. King Crimson and Gentle Giant also had releases that year, I think. Damn, that year was like prog rock heaven.

1971

Give me timeless songs.

What came out in 1991 that matches or beats "What's Going On" or "Imagine" or "Tiny Dancer" or "Rock N Roll."

This will be hard.

I actually don't think it can be done.

1999.

Porcupine Tree - Stupid Dream
Anathema - Judgement
Agalloch - Pale Folklore
Opeth - Still Life
Dream Theater - Metropolis Part II: Scenes From A Memory
Spiral Architect - A Sceptic's Universe
Jakob - Jakob

That's what I call a spectacular year in music. The first three are in my top six albums of all time.

1969 was great too.

But 1971 is the best for the exact same reasons Brau mentioned.

1984 was great for pop music.

1991 was amazing.

2006 was my favorite year of this decade for music, and it looks like 2007 will be even better.
