Somebody opined that in virtually all genres, the best music was recorded in THE SEVENTIES...

Rock
Pop
Disco
Punk
New wave
Fusion

The answer is the ' 60s, with the year 1965 as the absolute highlight.

1969-1979

Consider the bookends of the decade: Let It Bleed in 1969, and London Calling in 1979.

More classics were released in the few years between 1970 and 1973 than ever before or since. The Rolling Stones, The Who, David Bowie, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple (to name a few) – all released their greatest albums in those years. Hard to compete with this list IMO:

Sticky Fingers
Exile on Main Street
Who´s Next
Quadrophenia
Dark Side of the Moon
After the Gold Rush
Harvest
Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
Aladdin Sane
Aqualung
Thick as a Brick
Led Zeppelin IV
In Rock
Machine Head
Paranoid
Master of Reality
Tres Hombres

The early 60s let the 60s down. Things didn't really get exciting till around 64/65.

The mid 70s sucked big time.

You can forget the 80s although there were a few interesting things that came out of the original Ibiza and Chicago house music scene.

90s here in the UK were interesting because of Brit Pop.

00s onwards - the end of music as we know it.

So I'd have to say 64-74.

Both the 60s and the 70s had ups and downs. I would say as some of you, 1965-1975 would be the best "decade".

Most people refer to a decade as 50's, 60's, 70's, etc.

Not 1965 to 1975----Just saying!

Agreed! And the Eighties was the worst decade musically.

Well, if it's for any 10 year period, I'd go with 1963-1972.

Otherwise, it's clearly the 60s. Beatles, Stones, Dylan, Hendrix, Doors, The Who, The Kinks, even Led Zeppelin...that's just scratching the surface.

A decade is a period of 10 years. The word is derived (via French and Latin) from the Ancient Greek dekas which means ten. Other words for spans of years also come from Latin: biennium, triennium, quadrennium (4 years), lustrum (5 years), century (100 years), millennium (1000 years).
1965-1975 is eleven years.
Just saying!

OK, but 1965-1975 may just be the best Elevenade anyone comes up with.

Depends where you live, Olly. In the UK, London Calling was released in December 1979, in the US, 1980.

The 60s, although there were some pathetic releases here and there, like Neil Sedaka and the tame "As Is" album by Manfred Mann. The 70s were more galvanized and less charming, and introduced by the tame Gilbert O` Sullivan in 1972.

1968-1978. OK so that's 11 years but whatever...
