      I still love New Wave, but will say I am just as comfortable to listen to Blues or Folk.

      When I’m not bopping to 30’s and 40’s big band/swing, I’ll lose myself in all manner of Trance and Techno (and all the sub genres)

      Definitely classic rock, 80’s rock, metal.  Zeppelin, AC/DC, ZZTop, Foreigner, Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Ozzy, etc.  I also picked up playing Bass Guitar a year and a half ago, so Rush, Deep Purple, Dream Theater. Could go on and on.

      Born and raised in Detroit so of course Motown sound.

      How funny though that very much like @Bethany Delaney , I discovered Symphonic Metal looking for other groups like Trans Siberian Orchestra.  So Nightwish, Within Temptation, Kamelot, Serenity, Xandria, Beyond the Black, Avantasia.

      I even recently posted Ghost Love Score in the music group.

      European Metal is way better than so much here.  The talent is amazing.

      Cant do rap or hip-hop

      I like classical, but I listen to other things. Recently, I have been listening to different brands of metal. Also like JRock.

      My favorite genre of music is – yes!.

      My 1st real job was in a record store – yes, actual records – and i was exposed to all different genres of music.  So in my world the greatest rock n roll song ever is Beethoven’ s Fifth followed closely by Benny Goodman’s version of ‘Sing, Sing, Sing’. But I’m also friends with the monster that’s under my bed and the doughnut in granny’s greenhouse, all while the Hoosier Hotshots go from the Indies to the Andes in his undies.

      I could go on but i think you get the picture. For me good music is good music no matter what genre it gets arbitrarily pigeonholed in.

      So, turn it up, turn it up, little bit high, radio.  Turn it up, turn it up, so you know, ‘s got soul.

      Thanks for listening.

      I am very eclectic when it comes to music, depending on my mood I listen to everything from oldies, pop & rock, country, gospel, big band, classical, folk, blues. I don’t care for the screeching in heavy metal and I don’t care at all for rap or hip-hop.

      That’s funny Emily I did college radio also.  I also worked at a small FM radio station in Southern California.  It could have been the model for WKRP.

      Every genre of music has its great songs just as each genre has its crap. I enjoy most genres of music except not into rap nor hip hop (though there are a couple of rap songs I like).  Tend to listen mostly to classic rock.  I’m 66 and have just started to learn how to play the piano (I already play guitar, drums and accordion).  There are some great tunes like Hallelujah, the Impossible Dream, Let It Be, and Danube Waves (a.k.a. the Anniversary Song) that I’m currently learning to play on the piano.  Stay safe, stay healthy, All the Best, Hugs, Krista

      Just wanted to add to Emily’s post about independent music/radio (I was active in radio in college with WECB and the more commercial-styled WERS in Boston) with WXNA in Nashville. One of the few things I really love about living there is that station. My favourite show is Psych-Out.

      I worked at several non-commercial/student-run radio stations thru high school and college. During that time I was exposed to a very diverse range of genres and artists. Most of that music never got any airplay on commercial radio. But so much of it was simply excellent and deserving of a wider audience.

      For me to pick a few genres or artists feels insufficient. I prefer to say independent music is what resonates. It’s the other 90% most of us aren’t hearing. Most of it is eminently listenable.

      Curious? Go here:
      KEXP – Seattle
      KCRW – Santa Monica
      WFMU – New York
      KCMP – Minneapolis
      BBC 6 – United Kingdom

      I’d grown up with R&B and Classic Rock, but eventually moved more towards metal. It was in high school when I discovered Dir en Grey and the J-Rock sub-genre Visual Kei quickly became my favorite. I still love it to this day and enjoy discovering new bands!

      Some greats are Dir en Grey, The Gazette, An Cafe, Kamijo, and Nightmare.

      I can listen to anything but rap and hip hop.

      My preference is Classic Rock. I love Heart, Pat Benetar, Joan Jett, Stevie Nicks.

      I also love Clapton, Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Grand Funk RR, Bob Seger, Bruce Hornsby and anything from the early 70s to late 80s.

      I also love early rock. Chuck Berry was a God IMHO. Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis and others also are on my playlists.

      Country is ok. I just hate the really down home stuff and the newer stuff sounds more Southern Rock than Country.

       

      I’m not a big classical music fan but enjoy it in small doses.

      I’ll listen to almost anything except hip hop.  Still a rocker at heart and like Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and The Who.  Also of course Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks, Bowie, Beatles,  Gordon Lightfoot, Springsteen, it’s a long list.

      Also love classical music, it’s so relaxing.

       

      Favorite musicians:  Stevie, Jimmy Page, Roger Waters.

      I’ve went thru an evolution in my music tastes; in my younger years it was whatever was playing on the radio.

      Then in my early 20s, it was dance (high bpm).  Tried to get into rap but really couldn’t.

      I didn’t get into music too much in my 30s due to medical issues.

      Now, it is pop, my playlist in youtube/spotify is pure pop, and 99.9% female artists.

      Wow, it looks like everyone wanted to answer this one! I try to stay contemporary with a lot of new rock bands (no pop, rap or country please), but my head and my heart will love you forever if you play me some live Rolling Stones or the Doors.

      Hi Lilley,

       

      Now here is an eclectic answer.

      I grew up through the glam rock era of the 70’s and liked David Bowie, T Rex and The NewYork Dolls, moved into punk with the Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Buzzcocks. In the 80’s bands like Squeeze, Elvis Costello and the Attractions as well as electronic band like Ultravox and early Human League.  Not forgetting Joy Division and Half Man Half Biscuit.

      Last few years I have really liked Springsteen, Green Day, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, Slipknot and Muse. For a bit of variety there is also Eminem, Akala and Gary Clark jnr.

      My music streaming covers all of the above and also lots of Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, The Beatles and Elton John.  Oh and also Dvorak, Vivaldi and Wagner.

      Jessica x.

      I’m a classical performer, a cellist, so performing 19th and 20th century works is my jam. The physical and mental demands of this music provides a focus akin to meditation as well as a euphoric release.

      As a listener, my choices tend to be more specific. A bit of Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, Arvo Part, Phil Glass, Sallinen, the Walton Cello Concerto, John Williams, Bach (Chaconne, second cello suite, St Matthew Passion)…I should add my pandora mix is swing, Squirrel Nut Zippers and BB Voodoo Daddy.

      I’m a metal girl through and through grew up with classic rock discovered Metallica and Iron Maiden (my favorite band to this day) and was hooked. Grew up in the 80s which I feel the best decade for music of all kinds. Lived with my grandfather for several years and with him it was early 90s and earlier country which I like too. The last few years I’ve been into female fronted metal especially symphonic metal. Love Within Temptation Nightwish Epica Xandria Sirenia Evanescence and also bands like Unleash the archers In this moment Kobra and the Lotus the Pretty Reckless Huntress Angelical Tears Battle beast and a whole lot more. I’m in the US so many aren’t as popular here as in Europe. Also absolutely love Adele

      My favourite decade is the 80’s. Perhaps I was a new romantic in another life or just born too late.

      My musical taste is wide and varied, although Samantha now has her own playlist which goes on when I start my makeup.

      Thanks for the great question! x x

      JAZZ! New Orleans Dixieland first, then Chicago style like Bix used to play.
      I’ve always though of myself as a “Jazz Baby”, and wished I could live in the 20’s. Now, I’m about to do just that – but I can’t do the Charleston, now, darn it!

      Good topic. I like all kinds of music. My current go to is reggaeton. The beats are great and I love dancing. Heavy metal, classic rock, hard rock are my other favs.

      Do I have to pick just one. Hahaha

      When go to my stacks of wax I usually pull something from the rock genre, which is vast in it’s subgenres. But I do listen to everything from Alternative to Zydeco but I do have an affinity for Blues, Jazz, Funk/R &B, and Modern Classic (now isn’t that a weird pairing of words?) like Philip Glass, Steve Reich and Varese.

      I’ll listen to just about anything but opera. For the past few years I’ve been hooked on Mash-ups. Don’t know if this is considers a ‘genre’ but some of these DJ’s/Mixers are really clever.

      Music is a very big part of my life; always has been. Where I like most types of music, I DO NOT LIKE Rap. Unfortunately for the most part, much of the music over the last 20 years sucks. To truly answer the question though, Classic Rock, Smooth Jazz, Contemporary Christian, and much of the 80s music are my headphones go to.

      I mainly listen to metal, though at times I might listen to rap (the older stuff at least), older country, edm, and classical.

      Ah! I love classical as well! My #1 is Beethoven. All the other ones like Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, and whomever, they’re obviously well-liked. They’re big names for a reason! I love listening to Symphony Hall on Sirius XM!

        Hi, Olivia, thanks for reviving this old thread, which originated months before I even joined CDH. I share your enthusiasm for music from the Classic period, but also Baroque and Early Romantic. I remember in the early Sixties, around Christmas time, my mother bought me a “record” (what do they call it these days, “vinyl”?) of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. I listened to it over and over. To this day, I still listen to it every year during the Holiday season (not that exact record, of course, but a disk).

        I discovered Beethoven in the mid-sixties and became addicted to the Choral movement of the ninth symphony. A more powerful and stirring piece of music there never was. Time-Life publishing at about the same time offered a “subscription” of the entire works of Beethoven (on vinyl of course), symphonies, concertos, quartets, etc., and I bought almost every one. I carried them thru my adult life, but lost them all to Hurricane Katrina which clobbered New Orleans in 2005.

        In college, in the seventies, I discovered Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos, which opened a whole new genre to be explored. To this day, I still have an email address based on the BWV number of the 2nd Brandenburg Concerto. I still listen to the 2nd when the mood strikes, as it often does. I had all six, on vinyl, but lost those in the flood as well.

        Unfortunately, I never cultivated a liking for Mozart. I have no idea why not. But I agree with you on Dvorak and then there’s Smetana. Oh, and not to forget Handel — his “For unto us a child is born” wrenches tears from my eyes every time I hear it.

        So, thanks again for commenting. It’s nice to know I’m not the odd gurl out when it comes to “Classical” music.

      I am a heavy metal / hard rock fan who listens to a lot of other styles, but country leaves my cold, (Sorry to all lovers out there.  It sounds strange but to crank up some old Hendrix, Deep Purple, Led Zepplin etc relaxes me. So listening whilst dressed is heaven.

      If you want something heavy but weird try Baby Metal, Japanese heavy metal with Kawaii girls singing.

        Prog rock for me as well – Rush and Yes mostly. Also a Mike Oldfield tragic. But for a change of pace I like post rock – Sigur Ros and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, for example.

      Music has genres?! mindblown

      Kidding, kidding… I do appreciate them all, to an extent, though I tend to define music based on quality and not arbitrary classifications.  To me there’s three genres: good, bad, and mediocre.

      A brief personal sampling of my beloved go-tos: Bach, Billy Cobham, Vigilantes of Love, Ben Folds, Muse, the Anniversary, TV on the Radio, Midnight Oil, Glitch Mob, the Rentals, Daft Punk, Miles Davis, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Lindsey Stirling, Tori Amos

      Hi girls.

      As a child of the 60’s it’s perhaps no surprise that I’m a bit of a rock chick – head banged my way through my teens, twenties and into my thirties lol. These days I have developed a very eclectic taste to music – just can’t get rap though. It is no doubt very cleaver but is it really music? What about the melody? What about rhythm etc etc? When broken down, nothing that makes rap, musical (IMHO).

      Used to be massively (still am) into ‘prog-rock” especially the likes of Genesis, Santana, Fleetwood Mac, Doobie Bro’s, CSNY, Pink Floyd and Yes. Times passed and tastes change and I developed a taste for some clasical stuff and a particular penchant for Jazz not only the likes of Ella Fitzgerals and the Duke but some of (methinks) the newer artisists like Cassandra Wilson, Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Eliane Elias, Lee Gibson, Madeleine Peyroux and Melody Gardot.

      Also like some of the newish stuff e.g. I like Adelle, Gaga, Emeli Sande and some Katy Perry.

      Also enjoy some country from the likes of the Dixie Chicks, Reba McEntire, Faith Hill (and her hubbie Tim), LeAnn Rimes and John Denver. Could ramble on but that would get dull and boaring for you all.

      My absolute #1 regret is that I have zero musical talent. I’ve tried piano, claranete and the guitar but pretty rubbish at em all. Keep thinking about setting up an internet radio station, nobody would probably listen as there are sooooo many of them available but it would still be kinda fun to be out there – though it would be expensive, still fun though.

      All this has got me thinking about a topic to post……..

      Take good care girls

      I’m pretty much across the board when it comes to music; rock, bluegrass, blues, classical, country, R& B, Hawaiian, etc!

      Being a child of the 60s, classic rock is where I go first: Beatles, Beach Boys Greatful Dead, Hendrix, Yardbirds, the Who, Jefferson Airplane, Frank Zappa.

      During the early to mid 7os, I was a bouncer at concerts. Since then I like my music not so loud!

      Wow! Not often does someone add Frank Zappa as a go-to! Miranda, you are a girl after my heart! 😍🎶

      I listen to pretty much everything but gospel. My iTunes file is as varied as it is massive. On the daily, I typically listen to 80s pop and alternative, classic rock, and punk. But when I’m creating a playlist, it’s ‘anything goes’, as long as it suits the mood!

      Metal and hard rock – but very open to other styles.

      Music from 2000 on hasn’t done much for me, but everything up til then.

      My first concert was AC/DC on the Back in Black tour, 1980. Was gutted not to see Bon, but I think most people recognise how great an album BiB is, even if they’re not a fan.

      When I was 10, I saw Top of the Pops for the first time at a friend’s house – my parents wouldn’t allow it, being very religious.

      Wow!!! ABBA, The Glitter Band, Slade, Mud, Showaddywaddy, and best of all, the Sweet.

      Loved the glittery clothes and star-shaped guitars – and the music!!!

      I spent my preteens listening to ’80’s pop, and when I turned 14, evolved into heavy metal, thrash and some punk rock. Joined the Army and started listening and dancing to country music and rediscovering the tunes from the late 60’s and 70’s. As a civilian in the late 90’s, my brother got me into some gangsta rap and the latest nu metal and alternative metal. The last 10-15 years, I haven’t been really interested in the new stuff except when a new Megadeth or Slayer album are released. These day(past couple years), I’m YouTubing all the old 1980’s pop and metal videos.

      hi girls! I think I must be a bit weirder with my choices of music. i’m heavily into drum and bass, uk garage, speed garage, 2-step, some dubstep, upfront house, 4×4 bassline, jungle, reggae, acid house, rave etc. I am addicted to bass and fast beats. I have done live mixes doing this and I really enjoy music. on the far end of the music spectrum I also enjoy 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s pop music too. 🙂

      I’m into pretty much anything I outgrew my punk style from high school (ripped skinny jeans, tight band t maybe a cute denim vest and funky hair/spiked jewelry anyone?). Doesn’t mean I outgrew the music though. Still a HUGE Sum41 fan. Other than that my radio is usually dialed into Pop2K or KIIS FM. I’ve gotten more into the pop stuff again and Sirius is my best friend lol

      I gravitate toward old rock, such as the likes of Led Zepplin and AC/DC, and alternative rock, such as the likes of Skillet, Pillar, Daughtry, and Evanescence. I also enjoy Within Temptation and Xandria as well as pop artists like Jennifer Lopez and Aloe Blacc. Whatever catches my ear.

      In short tense folk rock/post-punk. New Jersey/New Zealand stuff. Kind of a specific genre of its own – the Bats, the Feelies, Yo La Tengo, Real Estate, The Clean, etc. also outside of those places so long as there is pastoral green and grey colours – Cleaners from Venus, Guided by Voices. That and lots of krautrock and postpunk, i.e. Can, NEU!, Wire, Spacemen 3.

      I’m a “dyed in the wool” Beatles girl!  When I saw them on Ed Sullivan (I was four years old!), I knew then, that I wanted to be a musician.  I had such a crush on George!
      I cried like a baby when he died.  🙁

      I have been playing their music (& writing my own, in their style), for 45 years!

      I like most music: rock, pop classical, folk, jazz, experimental.  My usual go-to music though is either female singer-songwriters (Kate Bush, Jane Siberry, Chantal Kreviazuk, Tori Amos, Fiona Apple etc.) or something within the prog/post/punk/experimental/electronic rock area (Julian Cope, Swans, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Nurse With Wound, Radiohead, Klaus Schulze etc.)

      That said I am currently listening to “Little Sparrow” by Dolly Parton (folk/bluegrass).  Fabulous!

      Metal and hard rock all the way! With some emo styles. From slipknot, avenged sevenfold, bullet for my valentine, system of a down, to the used, taking back Sunday, pierce the veil, AFI, the list goes on, but draw the line solely at those styles of music

I also listen to progressive rock – Dream Theatre, Avenged Sevenfold, classical music, 60 & 70s rock, Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood, and just a few other country artists. I have even been known to listen to some blue grass from time to time (West Virginia and Kentucky roots). But, yes, my absolute fave is metal and Christian metal! TTFN

      Oldies Rock & Roll and Classic Country are what I listen to the most, but there is very little I can’t appreciate in other genres—I am, however, finicky in what I call good!

      I am fortunate to have a good choice of AM-FM radio stations, and online streaming services.

      I’m a 60’s, 70’s child, rock and roll. If it’s too loud, you’re to old.

        I’m a true blue ” bluegrass ” lover. Sweet sounds of a banjo, mandolin and fiddle  . I can never get enough!
