You ever feel like you grew up in the wrong decade?

I grew up mostly in the late 80s (not my scene) and the 90s (kinda my scene), but I think I would have been better off in either the 50s, 60s or 70s. Shit just seems to have been ruled more by common sense back then. Less paranoia. Better music.

I totally should have hit my youth in the 60s. The music, the styles, and I could have supported Bobby Kennedy. Instead I was born in the 80s

I should've been born in the 60s, and been able to grow up in the 70s and 80s

Born in the 60s - though I think I would have liked to have seen what the Beatles craze was like, instead of being born in the year they came! (I voted no BTW)

I should have been 16 - 18 in the year I was born.....'66. I would have been a really good hippy/protester.

But, that would make me 57 now.

I was born in '82, but I feel like I really would have enjoyed being older in the 80's and able to fully appreciate it.

I agree with this. Not only for better music, but far, far better sport, and the world just seemed to be a little less uptight back then.

Plus no bloody computers

I'm actually still debating about this, a lot of people tell me I should've been my age in the 60s because I'd have been one of the greatest hippies the world has ever seen

I was so made for the 60's. I appreciate the 90's and all, but it's just not as cool. I'm just glad I wasn't born in the 80's.

I voted no...

I was born in 1951; I experienced Elvis, the Beatles, the 60's hippie-scene, Vietnam (this close to going) and then life as we know it now...I had one steady girlfriend/wife from 1967 to 1983...kissed a lot of frogs until I met BAW in 1988 and never looked back..we married in 1995... later, we'll look back at our Wonder Years and laugh at what we've accomplished or fucked up...its all good...

I should have been born sometime between 1,000 and 325 BC, in Greece. I'd have liked that, I think.

I don't think that I'd have been a good hippie, so the 60's might not have been the deacde for me, interesting as that period was, and, I was born in 1970 so I experienced that decade and it didn't do much for me.

The late 30's-40's interest me greatly.

I voted Yes........i should have been an 80's teenager instead i was a 90's girl, the fashion was crap, the hair was boring except of course the Jennifer Anniston, everyone sported that look. Remember cullottes (big baggy pants) *ewww*....the music,meh!Except of course POP ERA but i was alone in that scene, most of my buddies did not share my love of U2!
