Maybe it's because it was the last decade before I was born, so I'll always feel like I missed out.
But is it just me, or were the 70s all kinds of awesome?
Lots of my all-time favorite movies came out in the 70s. A bunch more are just movies that I love because they're a throwback to that 70s vibe (Hello, Zodiac, nice to see you again). Check this list:
Dawn of the Dead
All The President's Men
Aguirre, the Wrath of God
Holy crap, I'll just stop there. Is that a list of the best movies ever made or just a list of the best from that decade? I can't even tell.
Then there's the music. Serious question: with Pink Floyd and Joni Mitchell, do you actually need anything else to be considered the best decade ever?
I mean listen to some of this stuff, and if it doesn't speak to you in some way then I can't help you:
Luckily they weren't the only artists making music in that decade, cause I guess there might be one or two people somewhere who don't care for them. There was still Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, ABBA, Joy Division, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, the solo Beatles (before they turned crappy), Neil Young, James Brown, Sly & The Family Stone, The Clash, Black Sabbath, I don't feel like listing anymore.
I guess some other important stuff happened that decade too. Like my parents getting married, which paved the way for me to exist. Or a president having to resign, which I'm still undecided whether that was a good or bad thing. The point is, if I could pick one decade to live in forever, I'd go with this one. Easily. Even if I had to deal with Ashton Kutcher being my wacky friend, it'd be worth it.
What's your favorite decade and why?
