I couldn’t figure out whether to feature Donny Osmond or Johnny Winter today. Yes, my musical taste is as eclectic as my reading taste. So many genres, so little time, both in music and in books. Anyway, I digress. I was looking for a Donny Osmond song today because of a post a friend of mine wrote. I was so blown away by watching older Donny Osmond sing along with his younger self. It gave me chills. So I’m sharing it with you.

This post addresses something I’ve wondered about. What is the favorite music decades among my fellow authors? Is it different depending on your age?

I have satellite radio in my car, which means I can listen to 40’s, 50’s, 60,’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. There are numerous stations with more current music, but we’re not going to count that in this post. I’ve been channel surfing, and I’ve come to the conclusion that my LEAST favorite decade is the 50’s. I really, really don’t like all that doo wap stuff with it’s nonsensical shang a langs, and sha na nas that my parents grew up with. I know a lot of you seem to like the 80’s era. Not really my favorite either, but some of it isn’t bad. I prefer the hair band music of the 80’s over some of the other stuff. Unfortunately, the radio station plays mostly the other stuff. Most of the time I find myself going between the 60’s and the 70’s. I love a lot of the 60’s music, especially the Beatles. That is my absolute favorite band. And when a song I dislike comes up, I flip to the 70’s. I don’t really like the disco part of the 70’s, but then there’s the Three Dog Night, Bread, Aerosmith, Kiss, The Bee Gees (pre-disco), Nilsson, Bill Withers, Eagles, Bad Company, Badfinger, Alice Cooper, and the members of the Beatles going solo. Whew, that’s quite a list and doesn’t come close to everyone I like. Just a sampling of what I could think of. I guess one of the reasons I’m fond of the 70’s is because my high school years were the mid-seventies. Yep, I finally gave away my age. (Not that I feel that old, LOL.)

Btw, I’ve been listening to a little of the 40’s music (waaaaay before I was born) and I kind of like it.

What about the rest of you? In what decade did you attend high school? What is your favorite decade of music? Do you still feel as young at heart as I do, especially when you hear that special music?
