So what kind of music are you guys into? I'm a Rock, Heavy, and Techno guy who likes a bit of Classical and Pop as well. I'd probably say Rock music is my favourite overall because it's the one I grew up with most bands in. In all truthness, I like all music though. What about you?

I was going to put video game as a genre, but I wasn't really sure where it would fit. I love 8 bit and 16 music best myself though, mostly the techno, fast paced ones.

I listen to basically all music except for modern American/UK pop, rap, and country.

 

I really like progressive rock/metal. I listen to mostly metal bands, but I enjoy rock and indie rock more.

 

My iTunes library holds almost 20 days worth of music.

Alternative, grunge, indie, power pop, punk (so rock), trance, and house (so techno, even though electronic would have been a better descriptor to put in the poll). You should be able to choose two options...

 

Video game music is cool too, namely, for me, Dance Dance Revolution, Sonic, and Jet Set Radio.

I voted other for VIDEO GAME music!!! It's usually my favorite, if you don't really like Mario Kart 7's Rainbow Road theme then you must have an extreme dislike for space or something. I also voted Techno just for Want You Gone, currently one of my favorites.

Rock, Jazz (especially Fusion and Be-bop), Classical (mostly Romantic and Impressionist), New Wave, Contemporary, Video Games. Didn't write Metal just to annoy people, even if I do like it.

Country music is my favorite music. I heard this kind of music on the first time, when I played GTA: San Andreas and I was hearing the songs from the radio. It was amazing, especially the Merle Haggard's song. :) I also like the classical music.

As far as I'm concerned, cheesy 80's British synth-pop is the most glorious sound ever created.

I was surprised to notice that rock was the most popular genre here. I'll listen to most varieties of metal, chiefly progressive such as Dream Theater, Redemption, Shadow Gallery and Zero Hour, but also including power, Christian, extreme and post-metal, as well as acoustic, gospel or otherwise Christian music, world music, classical, musical theater, jazz and electronica (all of which can routinely appear in progressive metal!) Music is a vast world of expression, a system which seems meticulously designed for our enjoyment in utterly intangible ways that seem rationally unexplainable otherwise. My whole outlook and worldview has been changed by music and what it has taught me about this state we call existence and the realities within it.

I usually can't choose favorites for anything, but I do enjoy jazz, classical, and electronic music. My music library is pretty varied though.

Right now and for the past few days, my favorite kind of music has seemed to be "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots" by The Flaming Lips, it's been on near repeat.

I have to say anything video games summarizes my week though.

 

Yeah, all I have on my IPod is music soundtracks. One of my favourites is Super Meat Boy's soundtrack. Awesome! (Y)

While we're on the subject of soundtracks, I have a few I really like. that stand out enough for whatever reason for me to link them.

 

Mostly games. Youtube links included.

 

 

Games:

 

Homeworld Turanic Raiders theme.

Homeworld -

that plays for the third mission when you arrive to discover Kharak has been destroyed.

 

Dwarf Fortress -

. - a tad sloppy, as it was done by the maker of the game and not a professional but it's an excellent piece regardless.

 

 

 

Movies:

 

Dante's peak (too bad the movie is average at best) - main theme. Volume warning 50 seconds in - the beginning is pretty quiet but the rest is not. It's also a little creepy.

 

from LOTR stands out, although the whole thing is good. Warning: It's creepy, but you'll already know that unless you've lived in a box the last decade.
is good too, but means little without context. Also, I cannot mention LOTR music without mentioning
.

I have a ton of soundtracks from video games, movies, animes, and a couple of musicals too. They're relatively small compared to my music library though.

The Flaming Lips! Wow. Takes me back.

 

Didn't they have a song about tangerines or something?

I don't think they have a song about peaches but I haven't listened to every song The Flaming Lips have made. Tangerines makes me think of the song Tangerine by Led Zeppelin, or maybe the song Peaches by The Presidents Of The United State of America, but neither of those songs bear much resemblance to The Flaming Lips.

Tastes in music change over the years, except that I always hated 'disco' (1980's). I like stuff from the 40's still, like the "ink spots". I have a CD of their best stuff. My favorite is still "Jave Jive". I like stuff I can sing along with, which is probably why I love the "silly songs with Larry" on the VeggieTales DVD's. I was part of an amateur quartet for a little while doing the bass part; gospel and barbershop.

Well, speaking of video game music. I've listened to quite a bit of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword music in the past few months. Besides that I do have plenty of video game soundtracks and video game remixes and reorchestrations, as well as "video game style" music (whatever that means) that isn't actually from video games.

I should get this USB device that you plug in your car, I could listen to my music pretty much anytime...

I've never heard of that, but I do know plenty of people that are able to plug their MP3 players into there car's system. The sound quality isn't always that impressive though.

Just to be annoying, I have to point out that Disco was in the 70s -- I grew up in that hell. One of the great parts of the 80s was the death of disco. Yay new wave. And yay Larry. "Three yummy cookies. They are for Santa, but you may have one."

I just remember Tangerines rhyming with Magazines and Vaseline -- maybe it wasn't the Lips after all.

I remember disco as continuing into the early 80's. But then I remember that when your memory goes, you can forget it.

Well, it was there but we all wished it was gone.

 

This is why Hall & Oates "Kiss on my List" was so seminal. It signaled a paradigm shift in popular music. Before it there was only Air Supply or, if you were watching, The Pretenders.

Not sure if disco needs to be "brought back," but it's enjoyable enough, in small doses. Now Britpop...that needs to come back!

What is popular now? I don't really follow what the cool (or uncool) kids are listening to. All I know is that I hate indie rock and anyone who thinks, based on what I like, that I should like it.

All I can say is that when comparing the lyrics of, say, Justin Bieber's "Baby" to a classic love song of old, there is no comparison. :)

Oh, yeah, like this is any better:

 

 

The night we met I knew I needed you so

And if I had the chance I'd never let you go

So won't you say you love me

I'll make you so proud of me

We'll make 'em turn their heads

Every place we go

So won't you please

 

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby

(I want it only say) Say you'll be my darling

(Be my be my baby) Be my baby now

(I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, oh

 

I'll make you happy, baby

Just wait and see

For every kiss you give me

I'll give you three

Oh, since the day I saw you

I have been waiting for you

You know I will adore you

Till eternity

So won't you please

 

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby

(I want it only say) Say you'll be my darling

(Be my be my baby) Be my baby now

(I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, ohh, oh

 

[iNSTRUMENTAL]

 

So come on and please

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby

(I want it only say) Say you'll be my darling

(Be my be my baby) Be my baby now

(I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, oh

 

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby

(I want it only say) Ooh-oh-oh-oh, ooh-oh-oh-oh

(Be my be my baby) Oh-oh-oh, oohh...

(I want it only say) Oh, oh, oh, oh, oooohh...

Bah, there are some amazing songwriters nowadays. I enjoy most of pop Quebec music, other than that I can totally listen to Jason Mraz and Bruno Mars. Mainstream stuff is still alright to me. One would have to explain me what isn't good to them in it, not to be called narrow-minded.

Bruno Mars.

I'm fond of the current "singer-songwriter" contigent...Ingrid Michaelson, Priscilla Ahn, Duffy, Tift Merritt, stuff like that. The past decade's been good if you're into female-sung, (generally) piano-based, highly personal music.

I wonder how Mozart, Chopin, and Rachmaninoff fared as pianists who played their own music. :) Were they considered "better" than other composers in their respective eras, I wonder?
