AM demographics poll 2017 - age of the members

Second phase, as requested by Dexter. So, we'll go by decades, is that fine? Just comment if you have a different suggestion.

Wow, didn't realize how many of us were in the 90s. Of those of us born in that decade, I wonder how many were the first half vs the second half (I'm the second half).

For what it's worth, I'm in the first half!

I feel like an imposter; I was born in the 1950's by just three weeks. But someone has to keep Henry company.

Let's see if there is fourth from our decade brave enough to mix it up on the forum. I was born in 1956 - how about you Dave?

7/9/95, so almost the exact center!

But if you wanted to be technical, you could say second half.

Doing a bump already, as the forum is very active these days (which of course is a good thing)! Will the 80s and the 70s catch up with the 90s? Or will that decade stay ahead of the pack?

I was born in 1988, by the way.

Ah, so these demographics polls are confirmation that the young Americans are taking over the forum?

If I were born two months earlier, I would've had to select the 1970s option, but I was born in February 1980 so I'm a child of the 80s.

We've played the "what song was number one on your date of birth" game before, but I'm pleased that I actually really like a couple of the songs that was at the top of the charts on the first day of my life:

"Atomic" by Blondie (#1 in the UK)
"Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen (#1 in the US and Canada)
Let's make this a good year.

I quite like some of the songs on my birthday as well!
"I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys (#1 in the UK)
"No Scrubs" by TLC (#1 in Australia)
"Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer (#1 in Canada)
Unfortunately, in my home country of the USA, it was Ricky Martin and "Livin' la Vida Loca," which I don't despise but don't particularly enjoy either.

Great to have four of us in the forum. I wonder if any of the other folks from the 50's have a greater affection for Velvet Underground than myself :-)

Actually now that I think about it there is at least one more member of our club. Rdwdbob, who generally is only seen in the weekly chart thread, shares my birthday but is one year older than me; just an interesting coincidence I noted a couple of years ago.

I don't share your affection. I'm really a great fan of the V.U. & Nico, for me one of the best albums ever.

Let's bump this once more. So far, the results are stable: the kids from the 1990s are dominating!

However, we totally fail to cater to the real kids and adolescents demographics. Something will have to be done to push Hilary Duff on the website :P

Synchronicity was (supposedly) released on my birthday so I'm not surprised.

Playing the Billboard game

TLC - "Creep" was #1 Hot 100 on my birthday!
Garth Brooks - The Hits was #1 on the Top 200 :? and Green Day's Dookie at #2 :angry-banghead:
Green Day - "When I Come Around" #1 on the Alternative Chart.

So it's kinda cool, like I was born to love them haha.

Time to finish this one. Apparently, the final conclusion is that the forum's population is young, although there's probably not much crossover with the Disney radio demographics. I had a small hope in the last days that the 1980s would catch up, but we're still 3 members short!

And now for the last part of the demographics poll, the gender poll!
