Which decade?

If you could live in any decade (and you can include ones you've actually lived in) which would it be?

For me it'd be the 70's. Musically alone it was amazing. Here are just some of the names (and forgive me if I miss some that other people are fans of, just tack them on the thread).

Aerosmith
AC/DC
Black Sabbath
Deep Purple
Eric Clapton
Jethro Tull
KISS
Led Zeppelin
Pink Floyd
Queen
Styx
The Eagles
The Buzzcocks
The Clash
The Jam
The Rolling Stones
The Sex Pistols
The Who
Van Halen

Which decade would you pick? You can pick for any reason, fashion, music, film, anything.

I have many, but if I had to choose it'll be the 60s. The Golden Age of innocence.

Fashion
Simply amazing. Flooded pants and suede shoes. Cardigans and crew cuts. Like the 50s, this era had the best fashion. The guys were so plain, and the women had the best hairstyles, now... mohawks and streaks.

Music
To die for, really. If you think otherwise, you can die too.

Films
The movies during this era are surprisingly good. I now have favorites.

Runners: 40s, 50s, and the 70s (mainly due to Dazed & Confused).

Yeah... you'd never survive anyway, no Halo and all.

1870's. It would be so awesome to live back then. I guess I just like the idea of being able to raise a family on a farm somewhere and not have to worry about all these annoyances of modern times.

Or without the Lord of the Rings in picture form, as well as no surround sound.

But, if I had no choice, I'd choose the middle ages(screw the 1900's).

How old are we assuming we are to be for the years we want to live in? I don't mind present day, though a bit into the future wouldn't do any harm

60's
the music is the best that ever will be, theres no disputing that, and the spirit of the era is intoxicatingly free, even with the government being so conservative
id move to london and chill out in the early 60's with The Stones, Eric Clapton, Graham Bond Org., Alexis Korner and The Who etc etc etc before anyone ever heard of them, see what Brian Jones was like before he went funny, drop alot of LSD, have alot of sex and enjoy life
i have long hair now so all i'd need would be a paisley shirt and skin tight jeans and i'd fit right in
AHHHH IF ONLY!!!

60's would've been my second choice but for the punk era the 70s took it for me. The Stones were pretty dull in the 60s, they became the Stones we know in the 70s.

Anyway, Deviljett8 I never really thought about how old you'd be in the decade. I suppose, off the top of my head, a young adult, old enough to enjoy the full pleasures of the decade but not too old. Say mid 20s?

I'd be in a time and place where I wouldn't have to worry about the Black Death. You have to think positive.

Agreed on that one. What you don't know you don't miss. So much more relaxed I would think. Although every decade has their problems.

Berkeley in the sixties. I would totally be a hippy. Or I would want to live in London or Paris in the early 1900s or late 1800s.
