What's yo favourite kind of Music? Punk? Rock? Metal? Opera?
I enjoy listening most to Independent Music aka Alternative Music.
Recently, I stared to listen metal (cause of my boyfriend)..but anyway.. when I´m driving I prefer something soft..like Ska (e.i.) hehe ... well ...I love music !!
I like pop music mostly, like top 40's some rock is ok too!
I like songs that echo actual events and tell stories, but not 'i wanna hold your hand and love you til the end of time' or 'you left me, how could you' cr*p, so i like a lot of folk music because social history interests me.
Also, traditional Irish session music is the best drinking music ever. For some of the best, listen to 'Planxty' or 'The Pogues'.
I like loads of different music though (as does everyone i'd imagine) but The Stone Roses are the last brilliant band i've known.
The Prodigy and U2 put on the best concerts that i've seen....
....and theres a Blues Guitarist from Alabama called Carvin Jones who's the best musician i've ever seen.
I think i should stop right there, the whole answer would take far too long.
I've had Tom Waits in my discman for ages - the strangest lyrics, but so visual... "I've dangled from a rope of sand"... what a bizarre man.
My preference has always been The Beatles, though. After they got over their "yeah, yeah, yeah" phase. Plus all that 60s peace-and-love stuff - even if they were too stoned to get up and do what they were singing about.
I'm pretty flexiblem though. I'll listen to Louis Armstrong, Black Sabbath, Wilco (although that's a new one), the Pogues, the Smiths... Although I avoid the Britney-Spears-oh-baby-dance-music-repetitive-song-of-the-day stuff. I just... I just can't do it.
i must say tho britney is good clubby music! i do love my pop but also a lot of R&B-love it, oh and some dance music-espec-ultrabeat!!-pretty green eyes and feeling fine-they are great. anything you can have a good dance to-i'm there.
the pogues-great-a lil private joke at work-oh now i'm laughing!
I love a real mix of music. But the older I get, the more I'm getting into dance music; my Ministry of Sound collection of CDs gets bigger every month. I just find dance music upbeat and happy, and it keeps me sane in the traffic, and also gets the blood pumping when I'm navigating my way around 300MB spreadsheets at work (yes, 300mb).
Having said that, I'm also a big Fleetwood Mac fan, and I know you're gonna cringe, but I like the melodies of quite a few Roxette tunes. Plus, U2's Achtung Baby rocked in 1991 and still rocks today.
I like pretty much all sorts of music. And I really mean all. I listent to rock, hip hop, pop, jazz, classical, electronic, etc. etc. I'm just basically open to any type of music. I've downloaded some Cajun songs lately and I like them too!
Some favorites are Jamiroquai, Gotan Project, definitely the Beatles, Nelly Furtado, Nat King Cole, Metallica, George Michael, etc... too many to name! I've recently started listening to Damien Rice. He is totally amazing!
Damn! How could I have forgotten to name U2! I adore "Where the streets have no name"! It gives me shivers. They are amazing. (And Aerosmith!)
oh yeh damien rice-he is brill, something to really chill too!
Tway, i love that you like The Pogues, brilliant. I'm sure you'd like Christy Moore's 'Live at the Point' album as well.
One of my pals thats off travelling with me in Feb is a big Tom Waits fan, his lyrics read like poetry (Woody Guthrie's lyrics are great too, theyre like short stories), we're both Bob Dylan (Honourary mention)fans as well.
