    '70s: Oh god I don't know if I can decide. So much of what I listen to is from this decade. Maybe "Thick as a Brick" by Jethro Tull or "Supper's Ready" by Genesis.

    '80s: I don't know either. "Rainbow in the Dark" by Dio is pretty high up there.

    I was born in 1960. The decades in question were my teens and twenties, and as such there are too many to list them all. Besides, the 70s, especially, were insanely diverse with everything from stadium rock to punk and classic soul to high Disco.

    Here are a few from the 70s that have never grown stale for me:

    George McRae Rock Your Baby

    ELO Strange Magic

    Steely Dan Deacon Blues

    Rod Stewart/Faces Maggie May

    Joni Mitchell Amelia

    Donna Summer Rumor Has It/I Love You/Happily Ever After

    Flying Lizards Money

    Grace Jones I Need A Man
    (Maybe the gayest song ever)

    Doctor Buzzard's Original Savanna Band I'll Play The Fool

    From the 80s, just a few of so very many:

    Psychedelic Furs We Love You

    Siouxsie & The Banshees Fireworks

    Madonna Dress You Up
    (Note arm dancing)

    GoGos Lust To Love

    Depeche Mode Photographic

    U2 11 O'Clock Tick Tock
    (My crush on The Edge endures)

    Sisters Of Mercy Marian
    (Among so very many others)

    New Order True Faith

    Nina Hagen Dread Love

    Pretenders Kid

    Les Rita Mitsouko Marcia Baila

    November Group We Dance
    (Boston synth band)

    Slow Children Spring In Fialta

    Womack & Womack Teardrops

    Expose Come Go With Me

    Samantha Fox Touch Me

    Smithereens Only A Memory

    Wow. I have several favorites from those decades. But at this moment i'll go with American Pie by Don McLain and We didn't start the Fire by Billy Joel.
