Second place went to the 90s with 25 percent of the vote, then the 70s with 23 percent, the poll said. Only 19 percent chose the Beatles-led 60s as their favourite decade and a mere 2 percent said it was the 2000s. Digital channel Music Choice carried out the poll. Music Choice"s head of music Kevin Spector said: “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."
“In comparison to 30 years ago – when the only access people had to music was via cassette tapes, records, radio or television – we can now find our favourite golden tracks any time, at the touch of a button."
