Default Which decade of the recent history would you like to live in?

For me it's the '80s.

2000s and 2010s feel too modern, '90s music sounds horrible, and '60s/'70s feel too hippie.

But the '80s feel like a cool decade. Music was great back then. Also it was a great decade of tennis, there was variety in playing styles but despite non-homogenized surfaces it was possible to succeed on all surfaces unlike in the 90s.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Aint no place like the present.

But if I have to choose based on popular culture and general grooviness, it has to be the Seventies.

I'm pretty happy that I live now (2010s) and not somewhere in the mid of the 20th c.
