Re: Favorite 5 year stretches for music, post-1977?
Without putting too much thought into it I'd probably say 77-81. Most of the good early punk, Blondie, early Kate Bush, prime Fleetwood Mac, late ABBA, the first two dBs albums, the first Martha and the Muffins album, The Buggles, The Fall, Young Marble Giants, passable stuff from older artists like CSN, The Kinks, Sandy Denny, Richard Thompson...
My dark horse pick might be 89-93, for Guided By Voices, Boo Radleys, Liz Phair, Juliana Hatfield, Talk Talk, Kate Bush, The Fall, Pulp, Mariah Carey, Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, B-52s, Loud Family, Teenage Fanclub and Kirsty MacColl. It's not a period I know very well, so if there's a lot of other good stuff I could see it competing.
