Re: What's the best decade in music?

1. 1970s
2. 1980s
3. 2010s
4. 1990s
5. 2000s
6. 1960s
7. 1950s

A year ago, the 80s would have still be in the lead, but the 70s polls make me choose the 70s now.
The period 73-75 I always assumed to be weak compared to the rest of the decade, but realize now it is pretty good as well.

Is there a rule against covers of acclaimed songs? If not, I would like to nominate Lianne La Havas' version of Weird Fishes, which will be on her upcoming album.
Chilton, I was thinking the same way, because it is beautiful cover of Radiohead's song. If eligible, I second your nomination.
