I listen to anything except Country. I think you'll find that's true for a lot of people.<P>But more often I listen to J-Pop, Popular rock (Like Limp Bizkit and Radiohead), some punk, Dave Matthews Band is a must, Beck is good, and some retro like Led Zepplin, Cream and Bob Marley.<P>I don't listen to too much Rap, R&B, or Hip-Hop, but they're still alright.

First time in as long as I can remember that I've posted in a thread that has nothing to do with "Souvenirs d'Avalon". Of course, it's still music-related....<P>Well, let's have a look at the CD collection, shall we?<P>Allman Brothers Band, J.S.Bach, Bart

Lessee, I'm listening to approximately 40000000000 entries of 1 and 0, translated by my Sound Blaster Live! to alternating patterns of compression and rarefaction, which produces pleasing sensations in a remote corner of my brain.<P>Oh, you mean who <I>originally</I> created those comp/rare patterns? Um, lessee, on my current list there's Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Rush, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Primus, Tool, Great Big Sea, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Sublime, Rob D, Moby, Beastie Boys, and Collective Soul. I think I might be considered eccentric by the main populace, due to the fact that pretty much none of what I listen to is derived from the current "popular" bull.

Traditionally I've listened to country (growing up in the Nashville, TN area). I also like most modern rock, almost all oldies, some pop, classical, but I can't stand rap or heavy metal.<P>(I also like the song on the Life of Riley strip today by Clan BOB)

My musical tastes are as varied as the stars are distant.
Here's a small sample off of what I've been listening to alot lately, Deltron 3030.
<A HREF="http://benswope.tripod.com/rapbattle.mp3" TARGET=_blank>http://benswope.tripod.com/rapbattle.mp3</A>
(its about 512k, just a funny little track added into the CD for flavor)

I've mostly been listening to classical on my CD player recently. I recently bought two CDs of Gesualdo (one of motets, one of madrigals), a double-CD of Hovhaness (containing the Prelude and Quadruple Fugue, Symphony No. 2 "Mysterious Mountain", Symphony No. 50 "Mount St. Helens", and "And God Created Great Whales"...good stuff), 2 discs of Ives (one of the 2nd and 4th symphonies, another of "Three Places in New England" and Orchestral Set No. 2, which also has Ruggles' "Men and Mountains" and "Sun-Treader"), and a CD of Dallapiccola (the opera "Il Prigioniero" and the Canti Di Prigionia).<P>I've also been listening to CDs from a suitcase full of the standard rep performed by some second-rate (but serviceable) orchestra, which I got for free (perks of working in the entertainment section of a newspaper: picking up all the free CDs and other junk that the critics receive but don't want). Because I feel I should familiarize myself with the usual suspects as well as the oddballs and moderns I'm usually drawn to. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"><P>I've just been in a classical mood lately. I also have quite a bit of rock and a decent collection of hip-hop (Deltron 3030, Solesides, Ninja Tune compilation, etc.) <P>As for MP3s, far too many and varied to list here. Everything from They Might Be Giants to Spike Jones to Kome Kome Club (wild and funky J-pop) to a <A HREF="http://www.mp3.com/cellosuperstar" TARGET=_blank>Slovenian cellist</A> playing Scott Joplin's "Original Rag".<P>------------------
"My work here is done...
I go now, to mess with the Watchmen..."<P> - Darryl a.k.a. the Kingdom Come Baby, "Age of Crisis on Infinite Clones Saga - Chapter One Million: Onslaught of the Secret Genesis Wars Agenda", <I>Plastic Man Special '99</I><p>[This message has been edited by gwalla (edited 11-05-2001).]

1,200 CDs?!

Johannespassion or whatever it's called is nice too)<P>Saint-Saens--always gives me a lovely cool feeling, like a nice breeze. Piano concertos, Requiem, tone poems.<P>And various others.<P>-Tae

That's it! I've just remembered *the* best piece of music, I'd been trying to remember all day *yes, really*<P>'The SAS And The Glam That Goes With It' by Earl Brutus, for their slightly more hard/punk take on a glam rock genre, soaring stamp-along beats with layers of sharp guitars buzzsawing over it, has a good energy to it, having a chronic asmatic for a singer gives a certain terminal urgancy to their stuff...<P>*looks for their last album, 'Tonite You Are The Special One' finds. plays* <P>Arab Strap for afterwards, demonstrated by their song 'Afterwards' (afterwards is best/you get up to get dressed/I think your pants are by the door/I know tomorow we'll be sore) innocence out of total honesty, often minimal musical accompanyment to almost spoken word accounts... <P>those two songs especially, but the albums that contain them added to the good old 'repeat' function are perfect sound tracks, although listening to the Earl Brutus album now, it seems a little nihilistic...<P>oh well.<P>------------------

Well, my music tastes are a little eclectic. I like nearly everything, except for country and some pop music. So basically if someone starts singing about how their truck broke down and thei wife left them and their dog died or about their own "unhappiness" over fame and sexual attractiveness I grimace and try to get as far away as possible...<P>Best way is to show my WinAmp playlist, which can be accessed <A HREF="http://www.sowned.com/bleh/jeremylist.html" TARGET=_blank>here</A>. Recent additions (since last update):
DragonHalf - Ending Theme
Ranma 1/2 - Baka Song<P>Hope that gives you some idea. Right now I really like Linkin Park and other stuff like them, but the list is the best show of my tastes. It is nowhere near a complete list, as this is my new comp at university and all the rest of my MP3s (about 300-some-odd) are at home...<p>[This message has been edited by Magus Blastarr (edited 11-06-2001).]

I'm too lazy to list all the artists in my collection, too. There are only a handful that are represented with more than one album. There is everything from Bachs Brandenburg Concertos and Orffs Carmina Burana, to the soundtracks from The Jackal, Heavy Metal and Command&Conquer.<P>Warning: I'm going OT here. CD, LP and MP3 (at 256kbps) is all very good, but you should go to concerts once in a while. I just found out myself . . . . <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>I have listened a lot to Great Big Sea since I got Road Rage two weeks ago. And Friday I woke up with a raw throat from singing along: GBS started their european tour in Copenhagen on Thursday! Major thanks to all you lovely characters for recommending GBS! That most especially includes Sir Josh!<P>After that, I was really in a concert-going mood, so Friday night me and a friend went to a concert with Walter Trout and The Radicals. I can recommend that. If you like blues, and you haven't experienced Walter, you've been missing out!<P>I'm going to see Wolfstone on the 10th. Before I go, I'm going to get a sackful of earplugs. I can recommend that too. You only get one set of ears . . .<P>[Edit]I didn't get a sackful of earplugs. Instead, I got a set of reusable musician's earplugs. They deliver 20dBs of attenuation and (should) have a (physiologically) linear response. Personally, I found the sound to be a bit dark, but taking the plugs out was no improvement either. With the plugs in, I could both carry out a normal conversation, and I could also go right up to the stage in perfect comfort.
