What have we learned?
 
For those who took the time to craft top 20 lists for all the decades, did any revelations occur? Or truths that should have seemed self-evident but for whatever reason weren't until you did this?

For me, I learned that the four genres I've half-suspected are my four favorite genres are indeed, if the numbers tell the truth. I also learned that each of those four dominated a certain decade. Observe the pluralities and majorities.

14/20 of my 1970s list was progressive rock.
8/20 of my 1980s list was traditional heavy metal (with some on the fence ones as well: Queensryche, Gn'R, Helloween)
5/20 of my 1990s list was death metal (with Opeth on that fence)
8/20 of my 2000s list was progressive metal (Nevermore and Porcupine Tree on the fence)

I also learned that I don't really care for the 1960s all that much (not revelatory).

So, what have we learned?

Note: A perfectly reasonable answer is "nothing".

I learned that everyone but me has crappy taste in music.

Spin magazine would be so proud of you.


Also, I learned that my top 30 song list was so awful that nobody even responded to it.

I need more records from the 60's, and if I tried to make a truly representative list for any of the decades it would never get done :D

I've learned I need to take the time to try to actually get my lists down to 20 and rank them.

I learned that everyone but me and powerslave_85 has crappy taste in music.

I learned that making lists sucks and I'll probably never actually do it.

I have so far learned that I can't remember when a whole bunch of stuff came out...

I learned that trying to make my own list is damn difficult since I cannot realistically limit down to 20.

I learned (or rather had it confirmed) that tastes definitely vary from person to another as I've said many times.

Same here. Especially when you're talking about top 20 albums or top 30 songs of the 80s. Absolutely impossible for me to limmit that decade to such a small ammount.
