Re: Albums and Songs of 1989 Poll

Another option would be to do a pre-1950 poll...but I am guessing there is less interest from most of the forum in those years. There's actually quite a bit of interest in the pre-50's era. However, we traditionally do the decades in reverse order, so 70's would be next, followed by '60's in 2021, ...

Personally, I'd rather do 70's then '60's then pre-'60's and wait until 2023 to do 2010s but I realize I'm more patient in my old age than many here. Doing the 2010's in 2020 would put us in line to do the same decade again 4 years later. Just a notion I wanted to throw in the ring to see if anyone ...
