Well, my musical tastes are pretty diverse. Short of free-form Jazz and Rap, I don't think theres a genre I don't like.

Favorites tend towards the 1980's Euro Techno-pop and some show tunes from Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, and Sweeney Todd.

Whoa man. Let's go by category:
1. Classical - Tchaikovisky, Beethoven, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Wagner, some Bach (organ, mainly), Vivaldi, Ravel..
2. Classic rock - I love and adore Queen. Then Beatles, Eagles, America, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Rollin' Stones, The Carpenters (sort of), and... yeah. The list goes on.
3. New age/Celtic - Enya, ERA, Loreena McKennitt, Clannad... let's just say I can sing in gaelic.
4. Nowdays rock - Evanescence, Linkin' Park (sort of), Nickelback, The Corrs.

I prefer classical/classic rock, though.
Oh, and Filthy: gregorian chants! I've a double cd, imported from the States I don't like it that much, though.

Great thread. I know I will forget some music I love, but here goes (in no particular order): Jackson Browne, Aerosmith, Pachelbel, Billy Joel, Pink Floyd, Barenaked Ladies (yeah, I know but I like 'em!), B.B. King, Louie Armstrong, Jimmy Buffett, The Police, The Ennis Sisters (Celtic), Mandala (local Bluegrass), Neil Young, Bach, The Eagles, John Prine...

... and I agree with filthy about Gregorian chants, but not gospel.



Have you seen O Brother, Where Art Thou? There was some great gosple, done a'capela, in it.

I'm not wild about all of it, but what we hear around here is pretty good.

I also am a regular listener to Back Porch Music on NPR, Fri, Sat And Sunday evenings.

Edited to add that Blind Willie McTell was a street singer in the thirties and forties.

Hey Blindwillie, how about listing some of your favorites?

And yes, Blindwillie is my youngest son.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

I have, and you're right. I should've known better than to disagree with you.

Music is as music does, I think. I like classical -- there's some going on the radio even as I write -- but when it starts to sound like somebody died, I lose intrest very quickly. Also, I find a fair amount of the blues to be repetitious, although I like the music of many individual bluesmen.

Today's Country and Western sucks, but the old stuff, 'Hillbilly' is mostly excellent. Kitty Wells, Hank Snow, Roy Acuff, and so forth.

As mentioned before, Gregorian chants are great, but only when taken in small doses. But then, here's a series of chants that can go all night: Chants for the Feast of St. Ursula (11,000 virgine) done by Hildegard von Bingen. Gorgeous voice! Great stuff!

Also like the Red Clay Ramblers, Stan Rogers, The Irish Rovers, Most of the solo atrists from Appalachia. I like Blue Grass, but more and more, I find that it sounds a little, well, 'mass produced', for lack of a better word.

In short, I like a little of everything, but not a whole lot of anything, all at one time.

Edited to add that I also like Ladysmith Black Mambazo, but like the chants, It's best in moderation.

Ok, filthy has managed to make me reconsider Jazz and Gospel, but I think "show tunes" might be my absolute most hated form of music. (Sorry, Valiant) It's the only music that might drive me to violence if I were forced to listen to it for any prolonged length of time.

Yes, I'm sure there are some tolerable numbers you could name, but as a whole I detest it. I can't watch musicals of any kind, including the Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music, or Chicago.
