We all love music of one genre or another.

Who likes what?

Do you have different kinds of music to play in different places: thumping rock for long car journeys & quiet classical for chill out time?
EDM for partying? Trance? (My pet hate) Dangdut?

What floats your boat?

In our house it tends to be rock music most of the time, but I am more a fan of blues.

My husband is a bassist with a Rolling Stones cover band, so you can imagine what the soundtrack to my days tends to be.

I also work as a booking manager for an International DJ, so I am exposed to the clubbing music scene too.

Reggae music has always been my favorite. It started when I was an early teen unnamed.jpg but remained even when I became a grown adult.

Now I am gonna believe that you are this chick on the avatar pic.

Hey... I forgot to add that I have been organizing pretty big rave parties in France in the early 90's with some famous DJ's such as Carl Cox, Jeff Mills and others.

I like all sorts of genres... lyrical and balladish stuff gets the most play time from me. Simon and Garfunkel, The Streets, Deep Purple, Rainbow, various other rock songs from the 70s and 80s that they play in Indonesia, Ray Lemontagne, Dylan, various country songs that were on the radio between 1991 and 1996, alternative rock from 1999 to 2006, Spanish guitar... by whoever youtube has in the playlist, the first few Slim Shady albums, selected songs about being angry and hating stuff.

If the lyrics are good then I don't mind about the music. Instrumental music is great for working. But, I can't abide boring lyrics with boring music. I'm looking at you, boy/girl bands.

Most of the music I like is from the 60's to 80's. Rock type, not Kiss, or heavy metal/hair bands. Older soul, RNB, funk. Having Amazon Prime music has let me check out hundreds of artists I'd never heard of before, so my horizons are expanding.

My top bands in no particular order. Paul Simon, Smashing Pumpkins, Prince, REM, The Who, Neil Young, The Doors, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel and Queen.

I grew up with the Rolling Stones and still enjoy their sound. That's good because I will likely die before they quit touring.

My tastes are pretty eclectic and of course I like gamelan music (I need to put something on this forum about that...I'll add it to my things to do list). But for just listening while cooking or sitting on the porch with a glass of wine, my tastes are a lot like JaimeC's. Some of the other artists that feature prominently on my favorites playlist are Bombadil, Bryan Ferry & Roxy Music, Dixie Chicks, Joy Kills Sorrow, Johnny Clegg/Juluka, Joe 90, Old 97's, and Randy Newman.

I am 33 years old and I feel the music industry these days is a complete mess, I would have loved to be around in the 60's / 70's.

My favourite music is all from that era. So all the Eric Clapton related stuff (especially Cream, then also Derek and the Dominoes and Blind Faith), Rolling Stones, Free (I feel Free are a really underrated band) and The Doors.

Then I also occasionally listen to Jefferson Airplane, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Who and of course Jimi Hendrix.

Only recent stuff I like is Pearl Jam and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

I also play guitar which I love - I have a Yamaha electro acoustic and a Les Paul. I also have plans to start playing piano again when I get the time.

I am quite fond of the 60s and early 70s since I was rather active in those days. From a long hair shaggy life to the jungles of Vietnam. What a trip. All along the way there was nothing as important as having music around me. That era molded my love of certain music and those that performed it. I like it hard and soft. Sensible to confusing. Songs of life and those of a lost love of any kind. Jethro Tull under the leadership of Ian Anderson is by far my go to music. The Who to get upbeat and lift the energy levels. The Turtles or Flo and Eddie as they were later known for that sit back and just enjoy the show music. Then there is my other side when I can't get too much guitar blues or the driving force of Janis Joplin who I always considered my sweetheart. Heavy would mean Zeppelin to me or the driving guitar of Rory Gallagher and comforting would mean Moody Blues. I shy away from very little 60s and early 70s music. The 13th Floor Elevators can give you a dose of psychedelic nostalgia if you wish.

When I came to this vast roch music void I knew there would be no room for the albums, cassettes, and cds in my luggage. Hours and hours of ripping and and placing music on hard drive gives me my music collection of primarily 60s and early 70s sounds. All together, I have over 10,000 songs at my finger tips. I do go there often.

Yep, all my music (about 200 gigs worth all fully tagged & categorised) is on the hard drive of my laptop these days along with an up to date copy on a portable hard drive to save me from jumping off a cliff should one or the other decide to pack it in.


I didn't know that about Rory Gallagher but I did know that E.C said Freddie King taught him how to make love to a guitar.


13[SUP]th[/SUP] Floor Elevators,Steam hammer, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club ... Never heard of em,where have I been, sound interesting, will check them out, keep em' coming.


Talking about psychedelic rock, a mate of mine had an Electric Prunes LP a long time ago & one day my girlfriend at the time was going to the local mall so as a different twist on the old left handed spanner or screwdriver I asked her if she could get some electric prunes. She came home & said there were none at the supermarket & the people at the health food store had looked at her as if she was crazy.

I apologize, it was Jimmy Hendrix who credited Rory Gallagher as the greatest guitar player. My apologies. Clapton credited him with getting him back into the Blues.

To back up Jimmy, and for that don't know Rory, try this if you like a fast hard pounding guitar solo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITB4VMG5dUs

wow, Rory ripping, I unfortunately missed him when he visited Sydney but I did get to see Johnny Winter who also got a big wrap from Hendrix

& that Disturbed clip is cool hey, as with most of those bands into the ultra heavy or whatever it's called, they really can do some good stuff. I've got a couple of Disturbed albums by default & one has got a similar veined version of U2's "I still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" which also does it for me.
