    In another post someone suggested that most Tuggers were teenagers in the 1950's. The purpose of this poll is to determine when most Tuggers were teenagers.

    If you became a teenager at the end of a decade--such as someone who turned 13 in 1959--count the decade in which you had the most teenage years. So, a 13-year old in 1959 would have been a teenager for more years in the 1960's than the 1950's.

    Here are the decades:

    30's
    40's
    50's
    60's
    70's
    80's
    90's

    I'm about half in one and half in another but I indicated the one with the slightly more years.

    Started out my teen years in the late 40's and ended them in the early 50's. Graduated in '51....so you figure out where I fit in :shrug:

    Were you 18 when your graduated? If so you had three teenage years in the 50's and four teenage years in the 40's--so I'd say the 40's.

    If you were 17 when you graduated, you'd have four teenage years in the 50's and three in the 40's--so then I'd say the 50's.:)

    Part in late 50s and balance in early 60s. Why not just ask everyone their age? :)

    I told the boss to get the six and zero candle this last year. If she gets the sixty candles she probably won't need sixty one next year. :annoyed:

    She says I"m full of hot air, not in those terms (cleaned it up ) but I don't have enough air for sixty candles! :shrug:

    I was a teenager in the 80s - era of bad fashion, bad hairstyles, and bad music, and I partook in all three.

    I am genuinely sorry to have missed the 60s.

    Great post! Boy do we fit TS buyer demographics!!! Baby boomers for sure. I am crossover decades myself late 60's to 70's. I just starting buying all the CDs of that time to enjoy on the long very 21st century dreaded commute to work.

    The Beatles and The British Bands, Disco, Mamas and Papas, James Taylor,Leisure suits,clogs,Vietnam and all the protests, Hippie Movement Haight Ashbury,Hair,Woodstock,Black Panther movement, Civil rights, Kennedy & MLK Assasinations ,Women's Rights Movement,Men on the Moon,Star Wars and The Pill. Quite an experience indeed.

    And for those of you who have not seen this here is a walk down that memory lane. CapriciousC this is for you!

    I am a crossover of two decades - late 70's, early 80's, about half and half.

    I think I'll vote separately for both!

    The 60's the time you were free, saturday's morning at movie and you could understand words to music.
    My first love was basketball and football, I guess something was wrong with me.

    I was a teenager in the 80's, but my musical tastes were definitely formed in the 70's!

    Well, I guess I'm another decade spliter.
    3 years in the 60's - 4 years in the 70's.
    I voted 70's since I graduated H.S. in '72.

    The summer on '69 is forever etched in memory........;)
