Based on something Ultra said in another thread, what are your favourite years for music? Why so? Is it a select few songs, or maybe some really solid albums? Maybe the chart was interesting to follow at this time? Let us know!

One of my favourites is 2004 - I only just started following the charts (vaguely) at this point and it opened me up to a lot of new music and artists that I was previously unaware of. Loads of good songs from then too, including one of my all-time favourites, Left Outside Alone by Anastacia heart.gif and Lucie Silvas' debut album which remains my second favourite of all-time. 2007 was also an excellent year for me, with songs like Umbrella, Beautiful Liar and About You Now, plus Girls Aloud's best album Tangled Up, and Kate Nash's first album, which is my #1 favourite heart.gif

I've loved recent years a lot too because I've discovered so much new music. 2015 less so but 2012-2014 were solid for me and so many good songs have cropped up, sometimes out of nowhere which makes it all the more exciting I think.

On the contrast, 2009-2010 is my least favourite period of recent years, I feel like there was lots of good stuff but looking back at my playlists, there's very little I can say I adore.

Of recent years I think 2012 was a big one for me. Nearly my top 40 favourites from that year were like 10/10 (I really need to compile my top 100 or so songs of 2012 as well this year)

I think somewhere around 2007-2009 was pretty big too, where I first got into chart music and where there were some great beats around music.gif

Last year (2015) was pretty big too. Especially after entering BJSC and finding several new tracks on Youtube channels. There's a lot of tunes out that that don't go big in the charts!

My favourite song ever ('Another Chance') is from 2001 so I'd be inclined to start there. The accompanying Now album it was from was excellent (as were the ones before and after it) also so 2001 would be one.

I started getting into music properly in about 2004-2005 when I started buying Now albums. Songs like 'Toxic', 'Biology', 'Fix You', 'Dakota', 'Feel Good Inc' etc. coming out over that period really got me into chart hits. I also remember 2007 and 2008 being quite strong for music at the time as well, there was a lot on my 'favourite songs ever' list from these years and I loved a lot of Now compilations from this time.

So yes from the years I was alive ~ 2001, 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008! 2002 and 2003 both have a lot of gems too lmao. Basically I loved the noughties for chart hits. I could probably find a lot of individual years in the 60s and 90s that I loved the output from as well.

2007 in terms of quality - it seemed as if 10/10 tunes were charting every week. But 2004 did have everything a 7 year old interested in pop music wanted, so probably that.

I instinctively answered this with 1997.

Definitely something between 95 and 98 anyway. I recall 2005 being rather great too.

Late 2008 and all of 2009 has an incredibly strong nostalgic value for me in terms of music, like literally every chart song from that time takes me back. I don't really know why but I suppose it could be because I was in Year 7/8 and that's probably the happiest time of my life. Plus a lot of my pop favourites were either at the top of their game or made big comebacks.

For me it was 1996-2004, 2006 and 2011-2014.

1996-2004 was just the golden age of pop music, 2006 was just a brilliant year full of pop gems, same goes for 2011-2014.
I think the worst time in music for me was 2008-2009.

I feel like I truly got into music around 2007 - the quality was all around amazing and there were so many new songs from the big shots. Stuff like "Girlfriend", "Stronger" and Paula DeAnda's "Walk Away" remain among my favorites of all-time.

2011-2012 was also an amazing time period as that was around the time I was starting to get into EDM.

As I've mentioned about 100 times before, definitely 2008 and 2009 for me kink.gif

2008: Duffy, Alphabeat, Sara Bareilles, Jordin Sparks, All 4 Girlbands: Suga, Sats, GA, Pussycat, the Beyonce/Britney/Alesha/Xtina/Leona week, Run smashing, Alexandra becoming the 1st contestant to win X-Factor that I've supported from the start, Ting Tings, RiRi slayage, so much fantastic music!
2009: Again adored so many artists and songs! Jordin Sparks & Little Boots sleighed me so much! Also that Jan-Mar period with Lady Gaga's massive worldwide slayage everywhere, Lily Allen's fantastic comeback, Taylor Swift breaking out UK, Kelly Clarkson finally getting a #1 here and so much more heart.gif

Definitely these for me too I think wub.gif Looking at my faves lists, 2005 is brilliant too and actually then to 2009 is the golden era of my lifetime musically imo.

2005-7 I think, the time I really got into music around this time and generally liked a lot of music in the charts (the days of landfill indie </3). 2013 I think was also was one of the great recent years for music, lots of artists I now love I first came to notice then.

2010/2011 was the worst I think. Have very few all time favourites coming from those years and was when I started to realise that mainstream music wasn't always for me.

Most of the 00s if I'm honest, particularly 2004 onwards.
1998 has always been a favourite of mine as well.

2005 is where so many of my mid-00s favourites come from. So that, so many fantastic songs in the charts then, and to a lesser extent the next two years also. And 2009/2010, I look back on lots of what was there with a bit more than rose-tinted spectacles but even discounting that there was a load of good music in there that I still enjoy today. It also felt like there was so much more.

From times where I can actually really take account of my own music tastes, 2012 most probably, it produced many stunners and again, while some from that era have tired, others from that year, often stuff I passed over because the charts passed over, have come to the fore, I have loads of good music from that year.

2005 for strongest overall I suppose.

2008 and 2012.

2008 was the year I started following the charts and discovering music at a much faster pace, so a lot of my faves were songs I first heard that year. So many songs from that year sound like classics to me, and I loved the diversity of songs that got to #1. The #1s in 2012 were also diverse and incredible, and there were very few songs I disliked in either year. I also associate both years with me being very happy in life, which helps make them my favorites.

1999, 2004/5 & 2008/9.

1999 - it's the earliest year I remember actively following chart music as opposed to just bands like Spice Girls etc... my dad used to make me music compilations on video for me and I would literally not watch anything else. He would add all sorts, Party In The Park, TOTP performances and various music videos. Plus, the music itself was a lot better and I think it's mostly responsible to be the year that my music tastes started to develop.

2004/5 - Key points of my life and 3 of my top 5 favourite songs were from this time, as well as career highs for my 3 fave artists - Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson and The Killers. 2005 was a key year too as it was my final year at school so a LOT of memories.

2008/9 - simple enough. It was the time I joined this wonderful place. So I was following music/the charts closer than ever. Discovering various other types of music that I don't think I ever would have before.

Out of all those though, if I had to pick out one particular year, I'd go with 2009!

1998, 1999, 2006 and 2009 for singles. The latter third of 1998 is actually perfection in my eyes, everything was incredible to my ears, the string laden pop sound heavy at the time was gorgeous. 2006 seemed so happy, bright and bubbly musically. And 2009 was just quality from start to finish in every way, including Eurovision, which had its best quality for many years.

2004 and 2014 for albums - Borrowed Heaven (Corrs), Mistaken Identity (Delta), Afterglow (Sarah McLachlan), Unwritten (Natasha Bedingfield) and so many more <3 and then Common Linnets', Sheppard's Bombs Away and Ed Sheeran's X in 2014.
