My taste in music is eclectic. I can listen to most genres of music, and my CD collection (I used to have a vinyl collection too, lol) ranges from classical to jazz, to cajun, to R&B, to swing, big band, indie 80s & 90s bands (Blotto or Doug & The Slugs anyone?) to country rap (#ALCAL, #CREEKSQUAD, #JELLYROLL, #STRUGGLE) to salsa, merengue, reggaeton, and as I mentioned once here, I am a Juggalette. For those who don’t know Juggalo/Juggalettes, we are part of the Insane Clown Posse family.
No clue what any of the Top 40 hits are though.
@sicc574 I thought so too, until I went to see them for the first time, at age 61. I was accompanying someone as my Xmas present to them. I was not a fan, they were.
It was eye opening, and hands down one of the most diverse, warm , friendly, and inviting group of people I have met.
There are fringe lunatics in every group, same with Juggalos, but ICP are now middle-aged family men, who are very self aware of their not so blemish free youth. Behind the facepaint and theatrics are astute businessmen, artists and genuinely nice guys. Im 65 now and a Patreon supporter of them.
@Fuzzalini BTW sorry to put in a plug but it’s a non-profit so I guess it’s OK: on the net anywhere in the world, try allclasical.org. Especially if you are in smaller markets that don’t have any classical music “radio stations” (remember those, heh heh…) left. Listen for free, donate if you want.
I do NOT know what category I would put it in. Probably better not to try.
My favorite music is Bond. They are a string quartet backed by rock band accompaniment and they play punchier versions of instrumental music, often based on classical music, but not always. For example one of their best is Bond on Bond where they do the James Bond Theme.
I am also fond of Clannad and Enya and Lorena Mckennitt and Jpop and … well all kinds of things really. It might be easier to list genre’s I don’t enjoy listening to, which can mostly be summed up as angry music, though even some of that I like if it has a good melody with it.
@RiotDemon Metal (fortunately) has a big tent, so I’d include all of your choices. I’m a big Jeff Scott Soto fan (Solo, Yngwie Malmsteen, Talisman, Sons Of Apollo, W.E.T. & about a million more projects). Current playlists include: LA Maybe, H.E.A.T., Black Sabbath, KISS, Dead Daisies, Black Country Communion, Iron Maiden, Restrayned, Sons Of Poseidon. Big 4+ thrash is always a good thing in my book as well. Like I said: BIG TENT!!
It’s easier for me to say what my least favorite genres are: blues (except Delta blues) and top 40 pop (except K-pop). I consider several genres my fave: punk rock, '80s post-punk, classic country, trad folk/Celtic, shoegaze/twee, most jazz except fusion…I could go on, but I won’t.
