I honestly can’t decide which decade I’d want to live in, if I could only pick one. If I had only 5 seconds to answer, I’d say the 1960s because I love the furniture, music, and cars from that time. On the surface, I’m fine with that answer. But then I have all these thoughts about the things I’d miss if I picked that decade.
Sure the music would be awesome. But as I sit here in 2022 I didn’t realize I wouldn’t know any music from the 70s through the 2020s, and even though I like older music better, a lot of my favorite songs come from the 90s and 2000s. In the 60s, I wouldn’t know any of the music that comes after. Wouldn’t that be so sad?
In 2022, whether you like current music or not, you still have access to every decade that has come before. I don’t know if I could give all that up to go back to the 60s.
And even as I type, I have this thought: what if someone in the 2060s is asking themselves the same question and picks the 2020s. But then they struggle because they wouldn’t know music from the 2030s, 2040s, etc. That makes me wonder what music could be coming that we have no idea about. Will there be an artist that rises to the top and becomes a legend, and today, April 1st, they’re not even born yet.
It’s just a crazy thought and a choice I’m glad I don’t have to make today. How about you? If you could pick a decade for music alone, which would you pick and is that decade worth sacrificing all the music that comes after? Chime in below!
Thanks for dropping in…
