When Music Was Best
by Bob Boilen
There's a certain point of maturity -- or maybe it's immaturity -- when music is most likely to make an indelible mark. If you were that ripe age when you first heard and fell in love with Pavement, then Pavement will not only remain near and dear to your heart, but will also shape what you come to love about music in the future. Maybe it's the humor, the guitar tone or the singing style. At least that's my theory.
So here's a short survey, just three questions.
Basically, I'm asking you to tell me what year was the best year for music. I've put the years in pairs so the list isn't quite so long. Then I want to know how old you were when that music was being made. Maybe it was before you were born, or maybe 1977 is your favorite year and you were 16.
Anyway, we can take all those answers -- you'll see the results as the votes come in -- and we can come to some conclusion about it all. In the meantime, feel free to comment on your favorite years for music making.
