      no particular genre.  my tastes are eclectic.  I like:

      70’s/80’s rock – hundreds of songs/bands

      a good bit of country

      new age – Yanni, George Winston, Michael Manring, Scott Cossu, anything on Windham Hill label, Shadowfax, and many more

      classical – beethoven, Dvorak (actually romantic music), etc.

      jazz – Pat Metheny, Images, Indra Lesmana, Skywalk, Cabo Frio, Dave Koz, Allan Onaje Gumbs, and many more

      Gospel

      and some bands that don’t fit in these categories but I like them anyway – David Mallett, Larry Knechtel,  and others.

      and let’s not forget Ray Lynch!  been listening to that since the 90’s.

      this is just a tiny sampling of my musical tastes.  I wanted to be a professional musician when I grew up.  but alas, I never grew up…..

      This thread is a blast from the past! I am a very gentle and mellow person, I love music that exudes peace and harmony. My favorite artists will tell you what I like. Enya, Kitaro, Yani, Brian Crain, and the greatest guitarist in my humble opinion, Mark Knopfler.

      Hugs girls, lots of hugs,

      My fave is R&B and Soul from the 1960s right up to today’s artists.

      If the music doesn’t have a beat and I can’t dance to it, I’m out!

      Great question Vanessa! 📸💄

      My favorite would be salsa music followed up by classical.  When working out I listen to EDM type music like Armin and Tiesto usually with minimal vocals. It gets me going.

      Take care

      It depends on my mood. How I’m dressed. Most importantly, am feeling sexy, fun or rowdy. Being a city girl most likely my biggest influence. The majority of my library is ‘80-’90s some 2000s rap (Public Enemy, Digital Underground, Geto Boys). Mixed in is selective alternative, (The Cure, REM, Limp Bizket). Rounding it out are some random classic rock bands (The Who, Rolling Stones).

      Oh that is so hard for me to answer. I guess if I had to choose only one, it would be the great jazz vocalists, Sinatra, Ella and I recently discovered Eva Cassidy who I adore! She unfortunately passed at only 33, but what she left is otherworldly!

        Miss Eva Cassidy was an exceptionally good artist.  I have been listening to her for years.  it never gets old.

        angelic voice, would have loved to hear what else she would have made had she lived.

      #1 favorite : Industrial

      The usual go-to, make-me-feel-good music, in no particular order:

      Slayer, Deadmau5, Mr. Bungle, Orphx, Front Line Assembly, Cannibal Corpse (first 4 albums), Nitzer Ebb, AC/DC (Bon Scott era), Helalyn Flowers, Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM, Pantera, Depeche Mode, NWA, Rancid, Beastie Boys, Pink Floyd (up to and including The Final Cut), Snoop Dogg, Anthrax, Rihanna … This is a never ending list.

      My music choice usually reflects my current mood, and I love discovering new music on Bandcamp.

      I can listen to mostly any genre. However I have a soft spot for European Heavy Metal. You’d be surprised how much inspiration comes from classical music (which I also love!).

      Natalie likes to listen to modern pop (specifically female singers).

      Chloe is a huge Skillet fan, but also likes a little KPop mixed in with her rock music. And some 80s. Can’t go wrong with 80s rock.

      This great thread does seem to live forever and it is a fun trip down memory lane.  I listen to all types of music but my heart is really in 60’s and 70’s rock.  My wife and I used to dance 5 straight hours at big road houses with live rock bands every weekend (and drink some beer too).  It was absolutely that greatest fun for us but then finally it ended…. (we had children).   So to keep the rock hall memories alive I bought a jukebox and filled it up with 200 of the greatest 45 hits ever from that time.  I added a few pinball and video machines along with beer signs and topped it off with a flood of surplus pink neon tubes formerly used in the UW Rathskeller. Ah, the basement bistro and we didn’t have to worry about babysitters or driving home.  So, Rock and Roll never did die at our farmhouse and it also made a great alarm clock for kids oversleeping (She Caught The Katy by the Blues Brothers or Bad To The Bone by George Thorogood played at full volume).   So we had fun and all the kids got a valuable music appreciation course (oh, and they all learned to drive stick shift too!).  But then, they all grew up, moved out, got their own music tastes and bought cars with automatic transmissions.  Strangely now they all seem to have built their own version of the basement bistro in their homes.  What’s old is new?  Thanks for this fun topic and party on!  Marg

      I have always been heavier rock.

      I am now into female Japanese heavy metal.

      Try Lovebites, Band Maid, Aldious, etc.  Even kawaii metal with Baby Metal, though now no longer playing.

      So many talented girls out there.

        I was going to say the same, dating myself.  Country/western, Pop, Rock from those early years.  I listen to Celtic Thunder and found I like it as well, movie scores from the Star Wars, Close Encounter of the third kind to name a couple.  Overall just a general area, what ever I feel like listening to these days.  I been listening to more C&W, specially when out and about with my daughter Dee, she loves to listen to this one station when we are shopping.

      Oh I – LOVE – classical. I’m a trained classical violinist. I like the way music is going though. For people to say, “There’s nothing good anymore” only means you’re limiting your exposure to self-expression, there’s incredible stuff out there. I’ve always liked pioneering stuff, since the Dutch Dj’s back in the day! I’m very partial to the stuff that’s out there now, It’s very intuitive, utilizing bass notes to resonate in such a way that you ‘feel’ the music? Amayyyzing. I can get very caught up in expression, so I find that really moving. I prefer to see the ‘oldies’ remain there, they’re a bit played-out now, (Not to say that they’re ‘terrible’) and it IS 2022… Let’s “evolve”..?? It’s a shame to miss out on ‘new’ feelings and emotions that can be evoked from new sounds, I hunger for it. …Music is a source. Each to their own, though. I understand respect and appreciate that. It’s as individual as we all are.

      Have a great weekend.

      I originally loved the whole Goth, Punk and New Romantic thing. A great excuse to dress up and get away from stereotypes.

      These days I’ll listen to most things. These past few years I’ve been getting back into vinyl (records in the context of this conversation 😉 ) and that reflects a broad range. I still buy copies of the records I used to listen to the 1980s but I also buy material from new bands, particularly European Dark Wave.

      Jen particularly likes some of the fun disco sound. Currently enjoying the work of US band Night Club. But my most recent guilty pleasure has been Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s double LP ‘Songs from the Kitchen Disco.’

      So uplifting. You just gotta dance!

      I like most types of music,

      APART from rap and all this headbanging music, in the 1990’s when i used to go to the night clubs with people from work they used to play that all the time and you couldn’t work out where one record finished and the next one started,

      I’ve ever only heard about 6 cover versions that were better than the originals,

      1,Joe Cocker, with a little help from my friends is the best cover version I’ve heard well that’s my opinion,

      2, the sound of silence by Disturb is another great song, it comes a close second,

      There’s a few more but I’ll leave you to make up your own minds x

      I grew up on British heavy rock, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple etc etc.

      Mellowed a little now and one of my current favourite artists at the moment the country/blues artist Samantha Fish. She is not only a very decent guitar player but a fantastic vocalist I think she it so damned hot. I love her OTT makeup and 50s dress style. Maybe im drawn to her because Im a CD? Just wondered if other girls here find her attractive too???? If you’ve not heard of her have a look on youtube.

      I don’t think I have preferred genre per se, but if I had to say so, it’s more towards heavy metal and alternative rock.

      The top 3 musical acts that are personal to me would be Neurosis, 回路-kairo-, and the pillows, just to give an idea of how mixed they are lol. Others that I can think of at the top of my head: Iron Maiden, Nirvana, eastern youth, System of a Down, Gojira, Nevermore, Radiohead, Bjork etc… It’s a mish mash of styles yea

      I will listen to anything but Opera and Rap. As for a fav? I couldn’t tell you as it changes from day to day. or even hour to hour. Classic Rock (Eagles, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd, The Doors) when I am driving long distances. Country when it is short trips. Electronic/Dub around the house, in the shower.

      I tend to like softer stuff. Lots of old stuff most of you haven’t heard like Jim Croche or Edward Bear. But I enjoy most music with the exception of most rap and I can not stand classical opera type stuff. I get pretty sick of Christmas music by the time the holiday is past. Sorry about Christmas!

      I like all genres, with the possible exception of Classical. Right now I’m listening to Rumer, but earlier today I was listening to Rockpile and Ian Gomm.

      • My collection ranges from the 40’s to present.  Heavy to classic rock of the 60’S & 70’s, blues, blue grass, motown and a bit of classical thrown in.  I love great guitarists from all styles- Roy Buchanan, Poppa Chubby, Danny Gatton, Mark Knofler, Eric Johnston, Hendrix, Chet Atkins, BB King, Al Demola,et al,  I’m amazed at what they can do.  I wish that I could  make guitars sound half as good.

        Eric Johnson is unbelievably awesome.  His Cliffs of Dover is exceptional. I had a friend claim he(my friend) was an excellent guitarist, but when I asked him to play the song he gave up after a couple of days trying.  I did see a YouTube video of a HS kid that had it down perfectly.

      Really any kind of rock music. Punk and metal used to be my favorites but in the last decade or so I’m more into alt.  Lately I’m obsessed with death cab for cutie. Also Muse, the Shins, arcade fire etc. A little calmer than the punk and metal from younger days besides  I’m getting a little too old to mix it up in the pit .

      I’m open to most music, but nowadays usually 10 – 20 years behind the curve. (Did I tell you about this great new artist called Pink?)

      But my roots are in the 60’s. early 70’s.  Soul, The ‘British Invasion’, the San Francisco sound, psychedelia, folk music, folk rock. Oh, …and just maybe I should single out the Grateful Dead

      Curious to hear mine is classical

      Pop punk. Not necessarily the most musically technical or complex genre in terms of instruments or vocals, and some topics are repetitive (relationships, growing up and being different) but has plenty of youthful energy and a real sense of fun coming from the people making it, with little jokes in videos, or lyrics, and is music that always gets me going!

      That’s a hard one for me. I love a wide range of music. From Classical to 1930s-1940s-1950s-1960s-1970s all the rest. That even includes death metal, rock and roll, and country western music

      Well, I’m a boomer, so mostly late 50’s to early 70’s top40 music.  After that I had a family to raise so I didn’t listen as much though there are songs and groups that I hear and want to hear again, likePentatonix, FiveForFighting, others.  Jeff Lynne (who is my age which I just found out), the more I listen the more I like his songs. Jerry Garcia in his later years. Same for Arlo Guthrie. I love how Judith Durham has been able to sound so good as she has aged, absolutely remarkable. I also will go back and listen to big band music of the 30’s and 40’s  as well as ‘the standards’. Oh, and Jimmie Rodgers (Honeycomb) who just passed away last week, sad to say. My tastes are all over the place.

      I am happy I found such a cool topic to include my response within.

      As a DJ for many years, it seems hard to like one genre over another…but I do! 🙂

      I will enjoy contemporary jazz when I am working as I like hearing the music without any words that get my attention as I love to sing with those kind of songs.  LOL  My most favorite song ever of this kind of jazz is LATIN QUARTER by Marc Antione. The Spanish guitar in it just takes me awayyyyyyy…..

      Otherwise, I am a lover of what is now called classic rock, mainly of the 70s-80s with some 90s sprinkled in. Here’s a few of my most favorite groups/artists for those decades (impossible to list them all):

      70s-Doobie Brothers; Foreigner; Led Zeppelin; Elton John

      80s-AC/DC; Def Leppard; Bon Jovi; Van Halen; Tom Petty

      90s-Nickelback; Five Finger Death Punch

       

      ROCK ON, Y’ALL!  🙂

      Stephanie

          Nicole asked earlier in these posts about me. I was not a DJ on radio for long. I was a radio DJ once when I was really young and I was fired after about six months.

          I went on to become a mobile DJ who also worked for a small DJ company. I have no idea of the exact number of different events for which I was DJ over the years.

          COVID restrictions and client cancellations have stopped my business completely now. I am not sure if I will return to that career.

      My music collection is very large and varied.  My nieces tried for a long time to nail down just what kind of music I liked, it sort of became a kind of game with us for them to figure out, but they finally had that light bulb moment.

      I have jazz, blues, classic rock, Spanish music, folk music from around the world, even a little country, and other music that would be a genre unto themselves.  But the one thing that ties the vast majority of my music together is the guitars.  Even a lot of Kitaro’s new age music.  From something as soft as a John Denver waltz, to Greg Allman and Dickie Betts, to Bonny Raitt and her blues slide, to Jesse Cook and his awesome instrumentals.

      The guitar drives almost all music with a few exceptions.  And good solid guitar work, that makes sense in your head when you hear it, is truly something to see and hear.  And remember what they said in the early 70’s:  “Clapton is God.”<<<—(wearing a huge smile when I typed that)

        I listen to a lot of music while driving at night. Definitely Billy joe Shaver (rip) not forgetting his son Eddy (rip) they did a brilliant gig many years ago in Newark uk. Other than that I listen to rock, blues, gothic, it depends on my mood. The Blues Brothers had a hammering the last few days also Jim Stienman

      The best answer I can  give is whatever makes me feel the way I need to feel at any particular time. Atm I’m listening to a real classic, Terrence Trent D’Arby – Introducing the Hardline… just about a perfect album imo.

      Classical – have you ever heard of the Russian pianist Valentina Lisitsa?  You can find her easily on YouTube

      I listen to a lot of different styles of music, but I’ve always been especially drawn to really strong, unique female performers, from Ella Fitzgerald to Siouxsie Sioux. Lately a lot of Holly Golightly and April March. You’re probably familiar with April’s song “Chick Habit” if you’ve seen the movies ‘But I’ve Always Wanted to Be a Cheerleader’ or ‘Death Proof’, but check out her album called “Triggers’ (sigh). Also listening to Heartless Bastards, Detroit Cobras, and The Gentle waves. All strong bands with great chick singers. Revisiting 70’s Heart. I had a schoolgirl crush on Nancy way back then.

        It baffles me that there are people who don’t. It has a reputation as being stuffy and aristocratic, which isn’t always unwarranted, but I’d like you to take a moment to look up Jaques Offenbach. Just look at that picture, and TRY to tell yourself you wouldn’t want to go out drinking with that guy. Then look up his best-known composition, the Infernal Galop, from Orpheus in the Underworld (it’s a song you already know, but not under that name). Now reflect on the fact that if he knew that was how he’d be remembered, and what would be done with that song, and TO that song, he’d be happy about it.

        There’s more to the Classical genre than the creative mathematics of Mozart or the incarnated awesomeness of Beethoven; would that we had the sense to teach our children that.

            There is a cool website and app for EDM music. It does a great job of categorizing all the different sub genres of EDM. It is at di.fm. So far I like Progressive and Retrowave. The two ends of the spectrum.

      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

      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.

      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.

      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.

        Big Bad Voodo Daddy I saw them in person, great band.

        For Classical I like the work of Jaques Offenbach and George Gershwin along many of the others you spoke of.

        I also think the music from the old spaghetti westerns should be in the same category as classical.

        For example just look up the theme music pieces of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and Fistful Of Dollars. Them two alone, but there are many others to add to that list.

        Hippiw

      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!

      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.

      Just love music in general! I can listen to folk, classical, jazz, blues, New Wave, Punk, country, bluegrass, and doo wop come to mind. I can have the Beatles, Johnny Cash, Sex Pistols play back to back with Lorena McKennit, First Aid Kit, & the Wood’s Tea Co.

      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

      My personal favorite is heavy metal and sub genres of metal core, doom metal, melodic metal, goth metal, classic heavy metal, nwobm (new wave of British metal as in Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Saxon, To name a few. 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
