Any big music fans here?

on Friday, February, 21, 2003 4:11 AM
I admit, when I'm not watching TV, I'm on the computer, and I often listen to music. I'm very passionate about it. I mostly listen to female artists like Celine Dion, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Faith Hill, Shania Twain, and Dixie Chicks. Occasionally, I find something I like that isn't pop, country, or R&B. I love old Motown music, 60's and 70's singer-songwriter music like James Taylor and Carole King, and a lot of other stuff. The internet has made me VERY diverse in my musical tastes because I can discover music I haven't heard without buying a CD where I may not like anything.





I am nobody.

Yeah...I listen to almost anything, from Prince to KISS to Britney Spears to Parliment-Funkadelic. My friends are amused by my CD collection. I've found some stuff on the net, but I still buy most all of my CD's at the record store.

I love to play and make music, i've played guitar for 3 years and i'm studying music. I like to play jazz and a bit of blues, but unfortunatly i listen to punk. My guiatr comes 1st on my prized possestion list, my flynn doll comes 2nd [even though there's a £600 difference between the two]
Any who I agree with you false, that the internet helps in finding a wide range of tastes, If it wasn't for the net i probably wouldn't have got into tron.

I listen to stuff ranging from the 1920's to present day. My personal favorites are The Who, The Kinks, Prince and The Call. However, I listen to anything good.

One of my staff this morning came in early and caught me listening to Kelly Clarkson's "since U Been gone" followed by Ace Of Base's "The Sign". He claims to have lost some respect for me now.

I can't help it, they are fun songs. Think I need to whip out some ABBA and lay it on him. I am open to just about anything musically as long as it's good.

Cartman Land, I have to say I think Insane Clown Posse are joke though. How you feel about Britney Spears is how I feel about ICP. Glad you like 'em, somebody other than their mother should, but they do nothing for me.

I like all kinds of music. Film Score, 80's pop (Oingo Boingo),Dance and Trance type electronic music (Kraftwerk, Sasha, Armin Van Buuren). Classic Rock (Pink Floyd and Zeppelin, Rush, Bowie), and also some older alternative stuff (Big Audio Dynamite, They Might Be Giants, The Ocean Blue... etc)

I will not listen to Rap.
I will not listen to Country-Western.

I dont overly hate the new music coming out these days, but I am going to let my age show. I think it all sounds the same, to be honest. Originality is gone and died in the early 90's.

when it comes to music, i'm a bit of an outcast. i mean that in a good way since 80%of modern music is crap IMO. i have a soft spot for techno. as i type this, i can feel the desk vibrating under the beat of "Da Funk" by Daft Punk [i think i'll turn it down a bit], but i have quite a diverse music collection, ranging from Daft Punk to Yoko Kanno. my favourites though are:

1)Daft Punk [techno/bass]2)Subatomicglue
http://www.subatomicglue.com/ [techno/bass]<--they have their music for free download on their site
3)Franz Ferdinand [Rock]4)Blur [rock/"brit pop"]5)Gorillaz [see above]
i also quite like some of the 60s-80s music. these include the Beatles, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Bryan adams[i've only heard the song on gta:vice city, but i likes it]
so, yeah. i'm pretty diverse in my music. just don't expose me to R&B, Grunge,Rap, Boy Bands, Girl Bands, or any manufactured pop icons otherwise i might become homicidal

Prankster,

There are some great groups in each of those categories you say you don't like. If you are truly a fan of great music, I challenge you to go find something in each of those categories you do like. Look into some of the 60's and 70's R&B and Soul artists and I think you will find some stuff that fits into your world very nicely.

Under every pile of crap is often a diamond. I am always surprised by what I like in the modern musical scene.

ok, let me rephrase that last paragraph:

i am diverse in my music, but i'm not too keen on modern R&B, Grunge, [well, i hate the stuff. i really, really do. i'm suprised it can be classed as music rather than noise] i was generalising a bit with the rap, there are a few eg: eminem that i like [to an extent], Boy and girl bands; it's not that i don't like them, it's the fact that all the different bands produce exactly the same kind of music. the manufactured pop icons are the same as the boy/girl bands.

Here I go...

White Zombie, Rob Zombie, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, The Ramones, Concrete Blonde, Huey Lewis and the News, Green Jello, Sam & Dave, Billy Joel, Deee-Lite, Meatloaf, Johnny Cash, David Bowie, The Cars, The Cult, Blondie, Violent Femmes, AC-DC, Van Halen (Dave and Sammy), Sammy Hagar, David Lee Roth, The Beastie Boys, The Bangles, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, Primus, Space, and even more that I can't remember right now.

This isn't counting music I don't have on CD or MP3. I also like classical music, jazz, blues, big band, rock 'n' roll, motown, surf rock, country (up until the late 1980's; after that I don't like most of it), and other stuff.

I guess I have a very eclectic taste in music.

"If money is the root of all evil, I'd like to be a bad, bad man." - Huey Lewis & the News

I'll listen to almost anything that has a good beat to it. But one kind of genre that I love a lot over here personally is acap[ell music over here. Like from The group The Nylons or Rockapella for example. Just something about acapella that I lile so much about it. Force M.D.'s is another froupd that I like from the 80's as well.

VROOOOOOOOOMMMM!!!

To compute or not to compute that is the question at hand. Tis nobler to compile in C++ or in TASM.

Tori... can I make a few suggestions of albums you might like?

1) Big Audio Dynamite : Megatop Phoenix
2) Sasha : Involver
3) Orbital : Middle Of Nowhere
4 Peter Murphy: Deep.

Based on your list I think you might like them.

Have you heard of a group called "Inside Out"? If not give them a listen to.
