Like a timewarp happened or something. 1966 is argued by some as the greatest year for music. What would you choose as your favorite genre from that magnificent year?

I absolutely LOVE psychedelic rock so I chose that on the poll but surf rock is also one of my favourites and pretty popular throughout the 60s so it's a tie between those two.

that would be pretty awesome to wake up in that time period. I'd immediately start buying tickets for concerts
I'd be listening to rock but also would definitely be listening to funk/r&b/soul... folk... Jazz... country

awe I have feel like I would be a crazy rocker! hahaha! or a groupie!
I love songs from every single one of those genres, I couldn't choose. My taste for music knows no bounds!
None of the above, I dislike 60's music.
It's too hard to pick! The 60's had so many awesome artists and tunes!
i think it would be both rock and folk
Rock and Jazz, but living in the 60's would suck
All the above. The 60s is one of the best eras of music.
I really like The Who now. So I'd day rock
I would be well into Beatlemania; I'd seek out my Daddy and get to see them play at his 21st ^_^ (if I stayed until '68 I mean..)
Nothing would change, id listen to the same bands i listen to now. Rock would be my fave genre.

In that period of time, I wouldn't be listening music at all...
I love the Jazz from that era - Easy decision for me.
i'd invent so much of today's shit! also, i'd invent trap/house music and get rich as fuck!
Funkadelic!!! I was raised listening to it.
Bro, fuck all that, if it was 1966 when I woke up, I would start rapping and become the founder of rap music. Da end.
I'd listen to music from 40s and 50s. Music got really poopy in the 60s. Which isn't for me. Some good artists though like Hendrix, The Doors. Add the blues :)
I still perfer classical or opera
1980's rap 1990's grunge Regardless of the time I woke up in the music I loved would still be the music I love.
