What music do you enjoy listening to? Are you into that R&B? Classic Blues? Classic Classical? That good time Rock and Roll? That hip hop that those youngin's are always talkin' bout?

I enjoy listening to Techno and such while coding (Who knows why), which mostly involves music from ocremix.org; along with a whole bunch of random song I have gotten from my SO. So, that basically means I like alot of 80's music. Do like classical too, and basically any music I just happen to enjoy. I do not discriminate against the genres! I just come in with pre-conceptions of what they are.

What exactly is "Classic Classical"?


I don't know 'bout the rest of these people, but I enjoy good old American Blues. This includes people like Taj Mahal, BB King, Canned Heat, Lucinda Williams, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, ZZ Top, Robert Cray, and Sonny Boy Williamson.
Of course we can't forget about the many Brits who took their inspiration from these men, and men like them. Worthy of note are: Eric Clapton, Cream, Procol Harum, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and the Yardbirds.

Of course, I also enjoy several (but not all) forms of Rock and Roll. I've been known to listen to Classical, some swing/big band, and Jazz, as well.

I'm mostly about industrial music, powernoize, and post-punk. Stuff like Imminent Starvation, Merzbow, and TSOL, generally.

(I'm seeing WHITEHOUSE, the noize band, tonight, actually.)

I listen to classical when I study, leaning heavilly toward Mozart.

I listen to jazz (modern and traditional and sometimes even the foofy "smooth" jazz) in the car and around the house. I like traditional Americian Blues. I listen to Classic Rock (Led Zepplin, The Doors, Pink Floyd). I listen to Classic 60's Rock (Arlo Gutherie, Canned Heat, Buffalo Springfield). I listen to 80's Rock (Van Halen, Phil Collins/Genesis). I listen to a bit of selected 90's music, mostly The Barenaked Ladies. I listen to Hawaiian music (Israel Kamakawiwo`ole, Hapa). I listen to Bluegrass (The Del McCoury Band, David Grisman, Alison Kraus). I listen to Phish, I listen to Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. I listen to some Country Music. The scary part is that I thoroghly enjoy each of the styles and bands that I listed, each for their own reasons.

I've been visiting the Piano Society to download (legally) various folks' versions of everything from JS Bach to Rachmaninov piano bits. Gotta dig ol' Sergei's preludes. JSB's chorales are still bitchin'. Otherwise I have the last movement of Mahler's 4th constantly blaring on me 'puter. Oh, and that loevly Kylie video - the one with those gold hotpants. [Smile]

I enjoy many kinds of music. Some of my favorite artists are P.J. Harvey, U2, David Bowie, Rasputina, Johnny Cash, the Clash and the Postal Service.

I also like musicals, barber shop and classical music.

Sometimes listening to my mp3 collection on shuffle is a mind-boggling experience [Smile]

Jeez - where to start? First off a big shout to MMKK for namechecking Arlo Guthrie "I don't want a tickle, I just want to ride on my motorcycle"
Can't beat the Blues, especially, BB King & Muddy Waters. I couldn't get by without old rock such as Hawkwind, Led Zep, Bon Scott era AC/DC, SAHB etc. And then there's Prog Rock - Caravan, Camel, Soft machine, marillion etc.
Also Miles Davis, Bob Marley, Heather Nova, Moxy Fruvous, Frank Zappa, etc... and more or less anything with fiddles & banjos or bagpipes. Clare Teal, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and of course Pink Floyd, always Pink Floyd.

As for easy-listening , I don't find much around that's better than the acapella group Navan.
(I prefer their first CD, but couldn't provide and MP3 clip from their site.)

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

As it would seem, I also fit in the Classic Rock category. (I have problems remembering what actual "genres" I tend to listen to).

And I just felt like saying Classic Classical. It really just means Classical. I am just strange that way.

Pink Floyd? Very kind of you but err... no thanks. How about Southern Soul, and in particular Aretha. I remember hearing her singing "I Ain't Never Loved A Man (The Way I Loved You)" on a sampler album of Atlantic soul called "This is Soul" when I was at school. Now almost 40 years later I have never heard anything so electrifying. Another thing that is not as widely appreciated as it should be is that she also plays a damn fine blues piano.

Southern Soul, like the blues, is also a genre that contains a lot of excellent artists, e.g. James Carr "Dark End Of the Street", that never had the success they deserved, but whose work is now reissued, so there's much to discover.

I listen to quite a bit of Dance/Trance/Electronic such as ATB, ATC, DJ Encore, Fragma, DJ Sammy, etc.

I also enjoy some New age/ambient, preferably with a nice beat, almost crossing over into the aforementioned genres.

Classical music from a wide variety of composers...Rachmaninoff at the top, then Chopin, Liszt, Satie, and maybe a bit of Beethoven (the Moonlight Sonata, 3rd movement especially (not the slow, relaxing one))

I stay away from most other music...that other stuff will rot the brain. [Wink]

Currently at work I have Trancemania bookmarked. Too bad I can't listen to streaming music here, or else I'd be streaming techno/trance/electronica on an almost daily basis. I also have SLAY radio bookmarked. They do podcasts of remixes of C64 and Atari music. Trés cool! [Smile]

I also like ApologetiX, TSO, Nightwish, Tristania, and Folk Alley Radio. My fave individual artists include Ashley MacIsaac, Eileen Ivers, and Eleanor McEvoy.

/me raises hand for the Floyd

and to answer the question:
Yes.

I'm an old school sax player, and I love to jazz and swing. I love to funk and slur. Its all about the bop and the drop. I love to dance and I love anthing thta I can dance to. I just like anybody who actually takes their music serious and puts their heart into it.

The love for music gets me going as long as the artist has a passion for it.

Some of my favorites are:
Pennywise, Green Day, Outkast, System of a down, Maroon 5, ACDC, Rob Zombie, Ozzy, and a few others.

Well, I'm a bit of a metalhead. If you don't believe me, check out here

I do listen to other stuff occasionally, and am happy enough with any genre other than country, but metal is my drug of choice.

Wow. Where to start. I listen to nearly anything in the rock and roll genre. Pink Floyd is by far my favorite, along with all other classic rock like Zep, The Who, the Doors, Bob Dylan to some more late 70s and 80s like Boston and BOC, and Bad Company. I listen to Journey and Styx and some of the hair bands. Metallica is great. I also listen to some more modern bands. Bush is good, as is Jimmy Eat World and Greenday, along with Creed. I could not possibly list all of the bands I listen to right here. I also listen to many forms of techno, including but not limited to trance, industrial, straight up techno, just to name a few. Its actually easier to tell you what I don't listen to. I despise rap and R&B and what ever falls in between. Country is out of the question. Pop is gone. Well, this is taking to long. I listen to way too much.

Give me liberty, or give me death (metal.)  - Current favorites include Opeth, Katatonia, Behemoth, Children of Bodom, Dark Tranquillity, etc - you get the idea...

Possibly because I really like them both? Or it's been what I've been listening to a lot since signing up with audioscrobbler/last.fm? Korn's Greatest Hits album in particular is nice, and I like all the Disturbed albums (although Believe is definitely weaker than the other two).

I like most genres of metal, though I prefer the melodic styles. You'll also notice that most of my top listens are good dance floor songs, too.

Edit: Actually, the amusing part is the transitions in the "top artists overall" section of my list. Things like "Mudvayne, MC Chris, Slayer", or "DevilDriver, Tom Jones, Dimmu Borgir". One of these things is not like the other...

Music is a constant for me. Though I really have no favorite genres.

This morning half of my commute was spent listening to Bad Religion. The second half to the Derailers.

And on the way home I was listening to the Good Ol' Persons.

So give bluegrass, jazz, folk, metal, rock, and even the occasional rap or dance song(?). And if I am in the mood I will listen to and enjoy it.

You're right of course, Grummy. But Navan is the kind of music I like to have in the background when I relax and think or meditate. Their first CD is just awesome.

When I have a lot of filing and repetitve tasks to catch up on in the office, I tend to put on some lively Mozart or Bach. For fun I like the old time rock and roll, such as Bob Seger's version that the Newf quoted above.
