That's right, a poll, not a tourney. I was responding to a thread over in the movies section about the 80s as a decade of film, and realized that decades mean a hell of a lot more to me for music than they do for movies. I could pick a favorite music decade far, far easier than selecting one for films. So, the question is this. If you were on a desert island and you could have a complete library of films and music, but the films all had to be from one decade, and the music all had to be from one decade (they two decades can be different), which one would you choose? Also, which one decade would you most easily do without. For music purposes, I'm limiting this to recorded music, and the year it came out. So, for instance, Carlos Kleiber's version of Beethoven's symphony 5 counts as the 70s. For films, anything predating 1930 counts as one decade As much as I love music from different decades, I would easily choose the 60s. I would most easily do without the current decade (music, IMO, has been getting steadily worse since 1980). Film is much, much harder for me, and I'm going to have to think about it.
