I love-love classical, especially Tchaikovsky. Everything else I listen to is a grab bag (Green Day, P!nk, Dwight Yoakam, Emnimen, etc.). I do REFUSE to listen to any current country music starting with Toby Keith though, and jazz isn't my thing.
"And now . . .off to violin-land, where all is sweetness and delicacy and harmony and there are no red-headed clients to vex us with their conundrums."
BritPop... Quality BritPop from the Beatles to Elbow! There's just something about music from Britain that I just love.
XTC is my all time fav, but also love Stone Roses, Catherine Wheel, Muse, etc. I think the two American bands that I give "Honorary BritPop" status to are Death Cab for Cutie and Sunny Day Real Estate.
Besides pretty much every Jimmy Buffett album ever recorded there also resides on my ipod Dean Martin, Tina Turner, Frank Sinatra, Willie Nelson, Wheezer, Panic! At the Disco, Cowboy Troy, Evernescence, Green Day, Patsy Cline, the Bangals, and some original recordings from various groups my son has worked with.
My radio stations are programmed to 70s/80s classic rock, hard rock, and Bob.
I also like some classical music, girly Scandinavian symphonic metal (Nightwish, Epica, Delain), classic singer-songwriters (Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, any other Canadians I've missed?) and random groups like The New Pornographers and Mumford and Sons.
"Why would anybody come here if they had a pony? Who leaves a country packed with ponies to come to a non-pony country? It doesn't make sense!"
Oh me oh my...holy ___ that Beth Hart has some pipes,thank you for sharing.I m a huge blues fan and a total BB fan.I saw him probably 8/9Times and always give him roses.He signed my guitar and sang to me on my birthday..also love buddy
Definitely taking notes here, going to check out these bands you guys have mentioned to add to my collection. I'm a music whore.
I don't mind country, but it's not my favorite, same goes for rock - I have a few sounds of both genres, but not huge into them. I find rock just very jarring in general.
I like the Blues too! I have just a few songs, so thanks for the names!
Love meditation/ yoga music as well - Have you ever listened to Sufi or Traditional Chinese music? LOVE.
I enjoy Celtic and Newfie/folk music as well Love Great Big Sea and Simani
Don't mind Dubstep either.
And Red Hot Chili Peppers are great. So is P!nk.. Metallica is good, but not my favorite.
Sorry, my internet is pretty much well down, (I'm using crappy linksys) so watching videos is painful. I will definitely watch/listen when it doesn't take videos an hour to load and then play for 30 seconds.
But I will add on one of my very favorite new singers, a 17 year old singer/songwriter from Ireland with an AMAZING voice: Orla Gartland http://youtu.be/AQazxip0aBM
