The seventies for me. I left school in'72 to one of the best music scenes ever... or is it the nostalgia of lost youth speaking?

I always say though, whatever is in the charts when you leave school, that is your era forever. I don't know anyone that prefers a different era to the one they left school... all the best memories are associated with the early years!

I really don't like the kind of music that was around when I left school, and didn't at the time, either.

I can't possibly pick a favourite decade, though.

the 50s for me, left school in 57, so I agree with Quickbeam

Left school in 77 though the 80's music was the best for me.So close but no cigar.

Glam rock rules OK?
No Led Zep, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath.
All the same era

but I do like the New Romantics.

Oh and 67 was the best year ever.

Moody Blues, Hollies, ELO, Fleetwood Mac,
Mozart (what decade was that and does it count?)

The Beatles and the "Stones"

My hard drive contains music written in the 1500s through to present day.

How to make a choice?

I used to be indecisive ... now I'm not so sure.

"Oh and 67 was the best year ever"

Of course it is.

That's when Cream were at their peak and released 'Disraeli Gears'.

Left school in 82 not really tied to a particular era or music genre i like lots of music spanning from the 50s to the present day and prior to that.

If i was tied down and had to choose i would say the 70s with some of the huge rock bands about (and no im not talking bay city rollers or slade ) were talking the big hitters like pink floyd led zepplin deep purple to name a few.

How did we guess you would be a Cream fan?

1940's and 1950's for me. That's when all the great singers were understandable, (every word was as clear as a bell). It all went downhill in the 1960's when everything became a shouting match.

That's a very inaccurate generalisation from you there, Bingalau.
