Poll: '80s voted best musical decade in last 50 years!



Duranduran It's only an online poll conducted in Europe, but the 11,000 who responded came to this conclusion: The '80s were the best decade in music from the '60s to the present.

Well, shock my monkey!

"This is largely thanks to events such as Live Aid and the recent resurgence of bands like Spandau Ballet and Duran Duran," says the Daily Star. The '90s came in second, followed by the '70s and '60s, with the 2000s pulling up the rear with just 2 percent of the vote.

“The fact the 80s has proven so influential to so many people is certainly an indication of how much we value the heritage of that music," Music Choice’s head of music Kevin Spector said.
