If you could have lived in one decade, and the year preceding it and the year following it, which decade would it have been?
If you could relive one decade of your life, which would it be?
I would choose the 1960s. I would start my tour in the year 1959 and enjoy the release of Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty. I would take advantage of Disneyland in its earliest days. I would see the election and assassination of President John F. Jennedy. I would see all the drama under that presidency unfold. I would enjoy great television like The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Lucy Show, Green Acres, The Addams Family, Bewitched, and Dark Shadows. I would watch the controversey of the Vietnam War unfold. I would live in the time where music was still undefined with Rock still growing in popularity with The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkle, and others. Some older artists would still be putting out classics like Frank Sinatra and Andy Williams. Folk would be coming to an end with Peter, Paul, and Mary. The Academy Awards would present Oscars to some of the greatest film songs of all time. The movie theater would offer such great films as The Haunting, the most controversial of the Hammer Horror Films, and classics like Romeo and Juliet, ending in December of 1970 with House of Dark Shadows. Walt Disney would die in 1966 and Peter Jennings would take the anchor chair in 1967. The news would continue to show pessimism, while the younger generations would believe in optimisim. 1965 would be the 10th anniversary of Disneyland. In 1967, Pirates of the Caribbean would open, and 1969 would host the opening of the Haunted Mansion.
That is the ultimate decade. With great and controversial people being written into the history books and the pages of pop culture. It is the ultimate pop culture adventure and would be the decade that I would most like to visit...
