    Re: decade

    It means the 1920s gets its name from whatever "it" stands for. For example, if "it" stands for "gold", then the 1920s were called the golden years.

    Re: decade

    That means that the song St. Louis Blues was so significant (popular, important) that in the world of music the decade (10 years between 1920 and 1930) was called the St. Louis Blues decade.
