What Was Your Favourite Decade?

Mon Jan 30, 2006 2:19 am

Mine was the 1970's.
Started secondary school. Learned a lot (outside school  Wink )
I liked the music and the fashions

1210 - 1219 was a wild time. Of course, that was during my "serfer phase."

The 90's, I came of age at the start of grunge. Suddenly I had a closet full of flannel, torn jeans, and a pair of Doc Martens that I wouldn't take off. Plus I cut off my mullet and grew my hair out in front till it was almost covering my eyes (the rents loved that one)

70's for me. I left school in 1970, started work for BUA, joined the RAF in '73, went to Germany, got married (for the first time) and the fashions - yes, I quite enjoyed them Big grin

I seemed to spend much of the decade in an alcoholic stupor - maybe thats why I got married?

I'm not one to get upset much - but in this case I think the phrase "F**k off and die" is perfectly appropriate here, youth! Big grin

I've only completed 1 full decade - the 1990s - despite being 23. I was born in 1982, so I evidently didn't get all of the 1980s.

The 1990s was a time I really enjoyed. I liked the flow and the general feel of the decade. I also felt it was a particularly progressive time in politics (at least Australian and American). Also it seems now like the calm before the storm of the war on terrorism.

Sort of how my Prime Minister feels about the 1950s I suppose I feel about the 1990s.

For me, professionally and personally, the 90s. No doubt about it. Hit the pinnacle of my military career, and found I was happier when I wasn't married.

Definitely the 90s.

The 1980's, more specifically, the 1981-1991 period, as culturally it wasn't really "the eighties" until about '81-'82. Women looked the best, great hard rock music ( both from that period and of course earlier classic stuff obviously available, as it is today ) and pop-culture. Performance cars saw the beginning of a resurgence from the malaise of the mid-late 70's-very early 80's, and classic 60's-early 70's muscle was still prowling the streets ( instead of being "trailer queen" trophys for the investor crowd like too many today ).

Even though economically I was just getting by ( NYC-area was a very expensive place to live, especially starting out on your own ) , I still had a mostly great time and remember it being a relatively carefree part of my life.
