does PVC pipe make your water taste funny?

I'm trying to decide whether to replace my 70 yr old galvanized pipes with plastic or copper. Will the plastic make my water (city) taste like the inside of a plastic canteen? So far, I think I'll go with plastic strictly because of cost. Rodents eating plastic isn't likely where I live, sagging isn't a big consideration because the house is so small, and if it lasts only 50 years instead of 100, that's fine. So am I being dumb for going with plastic instead of the "good stuff"?
