  12. Music first produced before the 20th century

  1. I wanted to break down listening habits this time by decades. I'm referring to music that was initially written, produced and released within that 10 year span; not covered or released. I clumped everything before the 20th century together for a few reasons, but mostly laziness. Sorry. Please select all that apply.

    I chose 1979-1970 although I do listen to a lot from the '60's too.

    A 20-year stretch (1970-1989) would be more accurate but with a gun to my head, I gotta go 1970-1979. Incidentally, 1970-1989 would basically cover my birth trough high school.

  6. Unless I set this up wrong you should be able to select multiple decades.

    It threw me a little with the years going backwards . . .

    I definitely had to go with 1979-70. It seems several genres (rock, country, fusion) hit their primes in the 70's with an unprecedented level of freedom and innovation that has not been seen since. Artists were no longer afraid to record songs longer than 3 minutes, and they were no longer afraid to blur the distinction between genres, or at least to borrow from other genres, which they did in very complimentary and musical ways.

    The 80's, instead of building on the new heights reached in the 70's, seemed like a huge counter-reaction to everything that was done in the 70's. And a large chunk of music since the 80's seems like a misguided effort to reach back and grab something from the 70's.

    To me dates are irrelavent, good music is eternal, made today, tomorrow and at the beginning of time. Maybe one falls in and out of genres in ones life but I would never say a favorite period. Good bands stretch many generations. Look at Death recorded in 1971, but only mass released recently. To me it's as new as anything else one discovers.
