I do. It's before my time, but I like it.

I used to. Nowadays the Media has taken to using most of the music of my youth to advertise everything from fast food, cars and beer to adult diapers, laxatives and feminine hygiene products.

I was born around the end of 1982 but I like 70s music but that's probably the oldest music I really like & listen to.

I certainly do. Some of my favourite artists such as Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Pink Floyd and Rush released their best music in the 1970s.

Like music from any era it depends on what type of music.

I am the opposite of Fnord in that I now like certain music that I disliked during the actual 70s because the people that tended to like those genres were the people that excluded or bullied me. Now 40+ years latter I have gotten over it and can appreciate the music for what it is.

Yes, it's my favourite era for music. Some excellent stuff recorded in the 1960s as well, and the early 1980s up to about 1983, but after that it was downhill all the way for me, with only a handful of decent releases per year for the rest of the decade.

I like 60s and 80s music as well. But the bulk of what I like came out of the 70s. With some exceptions, from the 90s onward I wonder what happened.

I live and breath 70's music: classic rock, classic soul, funk, reggae, much of the country, even some disco.

I didn't like it when I was growing up, but I'm okay with it now.

I don't go for it by choice but will listen to it if it is on. Usually I enjoy records from the 1910s and 1920s far more than I like the bass-boosted sound of 1970s stuff.

The era of Rock from the mid 1960s, through the 1970s, and to the early 1980s was awesome - esp. in comparison to much of the junk nowadays.

Ironically, the prevalence of "junk" has boosted appreciation for the 1960s to 1980s era of Rock - esp. as we've become older and wiser e.g., the adage, "you don't know what you have until you've lost it!" can apply.

Just listening to these 35 to 55 year old music classics might be living proof that those of us on the Autism Spectrum can feel some deep emotions - similar to how NTs also feel when listening to the music of their youth.
