listening to music does not make me want to dress up. listening to music brings back the good old days , the 70s 8os music rock and roll and county music. some of the 60s and 50s music brings me back memories, but i was born in the early 60s. but i did listen to the 50s music when i was a young boy my mom would listen to the 50s and 60s county music.

My music tastes don.t change when Julianne comes out much like my movie tastes its one of those things that I can feel all my emotions as to who I am inside no matter who is around my wife and kids all know my soft side as just who I am even though they don’t know that Julianne is there on my sleeve when I cry during a song or movie they accept that’s who I am and I love that freedom of emotions .

I think I tend to listen to more female vocalists such as Dar Williams, Christine Lavin Cheryl Wheeler Etc if you’ve never heard Muriel Anderson play The Harp guitar you should look her up on YouTube.

Having been a wedding DJ for 20 years I have played just about everything. After pounding out the hits for 4-8 hours I find nothing better to unwind to than classical. It truly soothes the savage beast. It’s also a lot better for the ears than THUMPA-THUMPA at 90 decibels. Before retiring I listened to 70’s and 80’s for personal enjoyment, interspersed with classical. Since retirement and going full time as Beth I have become a classical freak only. Makes me wonder how Beth will handle being a DJ if they ever needed me to come back. Heck, how would they handle Beth as a DJ? Women DJ’s are common, but a cd DJ?

I like what I like, and it doesn’t matter how I’m dressed. I’m a romantic and I listen to that kind of music, and what’s referred to as Late Classical Romantic, which is 19th and into the early 20th Century. Composers like Chopin, whose birthday it is today, and Debussy, and others from the 20th Century. I also play this on piano and violin.
Of course I like some more current pop as well, but in recent years I have been much more selective as to what I listen to.

Not for me, Tonya. My musical taste varies widely and depends on a mood I’m in at the time. I don’t think it’s different from a gender standpoint but more of what musical mood I’m in. I just ripped through a Pentatonix stage. But I love classical symphonies, old school jazz, some country, pop, R&B, a lot of old church hymns, 80s hair band rock. I’m all over the place! Lol.

My musical tastes don’t change but certain songs do make me think about dressing for sure. The other day a song came on the radio that I haven’t heard in years and really had me thinking. “Spread your wings” by queen, I felt like Freddy was talking to me. It is about changing your life and being who you want to be. We could have a whole topic on queen alone but the lyrics in that song really spoke to me.

Freddy Mercury was and should be everyone’s role model… he was just such a free spirit and the epitome of”I’m gonna be me, no matter what the world thinks” I haven’t listened to much Queen in a long time… might be time for a queen marathon… lol

My music is extremely eclectic from rock through jazz to opera, bach fugues, gospel, country, pop, but I seldom go long without “Their majesty: Queen!” as they were long introduced.
Freddie… he had the courage to be himself always. No greater role model for us.

The question got me thinking about my musical tastes. They haven’t changed over the years, only grown as I find new tunes or songs I like in different categories and I search them out. Way back in the 60’s as a teen, I’d switch radio stations from the local Top 40 to a jazz station and listen to that. Then on occasion as I would go to bed, I’d switch over to another station that was playing really funky what we now call ‘New Age’ music, but in the 60’s it had no name (look up Ken Nordine), then I’d often switch to a station that played 40-60’s elevator music, you know, the ‘standards’. Again, some tunes I loved, some…eh.
As I grew older, all those tastes would stay as I listened to different styles, some singles I’d like, other’s I wouldn’t care for. Soft rock, the beginnings of reggae, Broadway musical numbers. Never much cared for acid rock or heavy metal, but one or two numbers, yeah. (groups like Poison and KISS fascinated me, obviously)
What happened when I would dress would be that I’d think of them differently but still enjoy these wildly different genres, sort of, I guess, relating to them differently.

I’ve been hooked on jazz for over 60 years; in guy mode, I want to play along with the band. But Bettylou wants to wear her flapper clothes and dance, dance, dance! Alas, I find I can no longer do most of my Charleston routine. It’s heck to get old, but it does beat

I love 1920s music and the flapper girl look – saves wear and tear on forms!
I’m a bit hooked on Electro swing music – and there’s an absolutely gooorgeous cream flapper dress in a boutique shop in Brighton that I have tried on several items now… only sticking point is the price – last time I tried it, the tag had been reduced to £150 (from £300), which may be a good reduction, but still a high price for a dress I’ll wear once or twice…

I keep thinking about that dress you saw in Brighton; If you get a chance, could you please check out the size? I’m a 16 or 18 (UK), and I may want to get in touch with them.

It’s labelled a size 12.
It’s quite generous – I’ve tried it on a few times now… They do sell a number of dresses in that style, as the shop generally has a 1920s feel.
Next time I’m down, I’ll get some pictures, if I can persuade someone to take them!
Couldn’t see it on the website – but there are others: https://www.prettyeccentric.co.uk/

Thank you so much, Laura, for taking the time for me. If it were a US size 12, I would grab it; but that converts to a size 8 for me, so I dare not try. And you made it sound so pretty, too.

It has. As a musician myself, I can attest to that. When 90% of musicians use autotune regularly, you know it sucks. Back in the 80s, in its early days, it was used for special effects on certain pieces (looking at you Duran Duran and Journey). Now a days, practically every song has it throughout. Most of what I listen to is a few select rock groups, but it switches to mostly female groups en femme (Fireflight and The Letter Black mostly).

I’ve always enjoyed a lot of what some might consider “guilty pleasure” music, but yes, when I am out as Laura, the feelings the music awakens are much more of genuine, happy excitement and the taste of freedom, than the feelings of a deep yearning, tinged with melancholy that I feel in drab.
In fact, as Laura, I find it hard to listen to anything heavy – I just don’t relate to it.
In drab, heavy is my go-to – but is changing. I now find that in drab, both metal and disco are things I can openly enjoy – I feel no shame in listening to, for example, Barbra Streisand, Louis Prima, Mel & Kim, then Megadeth, Rammstein or Cradle of Filth.
I don’t really listen to Classical any more – I listened to absolutely loads until I was awarded my degree, then wrote like I was possessed for many years and stopped because a family and full time job doesn’t offer the luxury of time in which to compose.
There are few famous works that I am not deeply familiar with, and I’ve always preferred songs – musical snacks rather than banquets.
That said, I have never managed Wagner’s Ring in one sitting.
(Wonders what jokes Steph and Grace will come up with for that last comment…😁😍😘

I have those guilty pleasures myself although mine are newer than older mostly, Halsey,Selena Gomez, I love a beautiful voice.
A good tempo helps when doing kickboxing and other martial arts training I’ve found.
I’m not the best of musicians and have never written anything myself… I’m a bass player in the lowest of the terms lol I barely play… haven’t had a bass in years…
love to sit and listen to classical music occasionally though especially if I just want to sit close my eyes and clear my head

I’ve tried for many years to deny my vocation as bass player – I started out in bands on bass because there weren’t many about and it was thus easy to join a band, and I play guitar like I have 2 right hands.
I played piano as my main instrument for my degree – but felt such a fake, as I found reading music easy, and I could just hammer out the notes. I didn’t feel very musical doing it, and I could never play from memory or improvise.
Guitar is similar – I watch videos until I’m note perfect and it’s muscle memory, but improv beats me!
Bass is different – I just play what I feel, and it seems to work. I have no idea how I do it – I hear the chord progressions, and the bass lines write themselves in my head – and change as I play.
Music is a curious thing!

I grew up with music, started on reeds early, then taught myself guitar after going into the Navy. What I never learned properly was reading music well. I hear it and can play it. I use fake books to give me the cord changes and go from there. More or less same with guitar or sax, but I’m pretty straight playing clarinet. I’ve lost so much range that I don’t really like to sing much anymore outside of choir at church.
My wife played percussion at college (University of Tennessee), and marched with the band as we both did in high school together. Our kids on the other hand… not so well.
Bridgette… who can really get into Wagner still

Hi Tonya. I would not say it changes much. I love everything from classic rock to Classical. I do hear the voice of Stevie, Shania, or Carly in the air more when dressed tho.
And I will confess to my sisters – don’t hate me girls, I’m just being honest – I have listened to Barry Manilow when dressed 😟🤪….. I DO NOT do that when in drab…
