And a million others

- The Beatles
-The Crow soundtrack- and any of those bands- esp. Jane Sibery:p
-Grateful Dead- American Beauty
Plus I recently got a Rat PAck CD of Frank, Dean and Sammy that's pretty good, I also listen to a 5-disc jazz set. An awesome cd I have is from an old local radio station in Philly, "WDREgional", which has a cool ska version of Black Sabbath's Paranoid.
and on and on...

Anything orchestral--I'm not picky. My radio is permanantly tuned to National Public Radio. I listen to film score, my favorite artists in that genre being John Williams, Angelo Badalamenti, Danny Elfman, and Hans Zimmer. I listen to classical, my favorite composer in that genre being Beethoven.
Also, I listen to classic rock--any classic rock except for hair metal bands. I find the occasional new rock band listenable, such as Seven Mary Three, Mike Errico, Everclear, Badly Drawn Boy, Pete Yorn, The Roots, Rusted Root, and Dave Matthews Band.
I'm not the cool kid in my high school, obviously. Ha.

My taste is some what hard to pend down. I can go from hard rock to soft and then to country then to classical. This can happen all in one sit down with the radio.:stupid: It all depends on how I feel at the time.
03-03-2002, 11:50 AM
Deja Vu here...oy... :p
They Might Be Giants
Film scores (favorite being the Dinosaur soundtrack)
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Soundtracks from movies, especially that O' Brother Where Art Thou? one :D
And any song that catches my ear (too many to list)

I listen to a wide variety of music so I'll try to include a few from each group.
New Found Glory
Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies
Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers
Dance Hall Crashers
R.E.M. (their older stuff)
They Might Be Giants
That's all I can think of for right now.
i'm about as eclectic as they come.
my "primary passion" (neat term, huh?) is probably instrumental film music - from the entire history of cinema, favourites being john williams, danny elfman, jerry goldsmith, elliot goldenthal, alan silvestri, james horner, hans zimmer, elmer bernstein, basil poledouris, david arnold, patrick doyle and others. have about 700 soundtrack CD's in total.
i enjoy musicals - from the rock opera type a la the who's "tommy" to regular lloyd webber material and the wonderful "chess".
i also like all kinds of classical music, which is a close relative to film music, obviously.
then there are various forms of electronica, particularly "pioneering" new age stuff like jean michel jarre, vangelis, tangerine dream, kraftwerk etc., but also more modern techno stuff (not really that "hillbilly" dance music of scooter, though).
i like a lot of jazz 'n funk, from the early cab calloway stuff to more modern things a la curtis mayfield and wynton marsalis.
there's a whole bunch of rock and pop that i fancy, mostly older stuff - like supertramp, alan parsons project, pink floyd, manfred mann's earthband, oingo boingo, santana, 10cc, electric light orchestra, emerson, lake and palmer, yes, king crimson and much more.
i think there's some excellent hard rock out there, particularly things like the delicious rammstein and metallica, of course.
it's probably easier to say what i DON'T like, which includes rap and hip-hop, some of the more extreme speed metal stuff, that modern r'n'b-thingie (i like old r'n'b, though - meaning rhythm and blues), boybands, extreme minimalism (kinda fancy vt-favs glass, nyman and sakamoto, though), cheesy country music and a few more.

Basically I like anything but country.
Here are some of my favorites:
-Dave Matthews Band
-Red Hot Chili Peppers
-Stone Temple Pilots (not the last 2 albums though)
-Rage Against the Machine
-Soundtracks (Favs are Star Wars, Lost Highway, and The 1st Crow)
-Weird Al Yankovic
There are others of course, but these are the main ones that I enjoy.

Kylie Minogue (all 8 of her albums)
Celine Dion (who I met... and she's nice)
Pet Shop Boys
Rob Zombie (met him... he's cool)
The Mamas & the Papas
Madonna (stop snickering)
Genesis (mostly the Pete Gabriel years)
I like a lot of new stuff, but I can't rightly put them into this list because most of them haven't put out more than one successful CD.

I haven't seen any billboards around here, but I'm guessing it's the one where she is laying down in that little strappy one piecer looking all tan and comely. :)
Sorry Huck, but Crazy Town isn't really me. I DON'T LIKE rap at all.
03-04-2002, 04:27 PM
Well actually Grif, Crazy Town isn't all rap. They're rap/metal.
03-04-2002, 08:02 PM

Badly Drawn Boy
Belle and Sebastian
To name but a few from my eclectic collection and tastes. I kept it short. :D
03-05-2002, 04:30 PM
I am all about the ROCK.
My favorite band is Guns N' Roses
Type O Negative
40 Below Summer
But I love the classics,
Hey Huck, I don't think that screaming in one song counts as rap/metal.:D :) ;) :p :evil: :happy: :greedy: :crazed:
03-06-2002, 03:15 PM
They yell in a bunch of songs on their cd Grif.

Hello. I haven't visited the forums for a while, so I thought I'd drop by and answer any of the threads that looked interesting.
- All Classical Music (Mozart is my favorite.)
- Oldies Music from the 50's-80's (But I Hate Do-Wop music)
- Lincoln Park
- Nelly Furtado
- And I also have a bad habit for listening to rap music like Outkast and Nellie. But I only like a few rap songs.
I dislike.....No. I HATE COUNTRY MUSIC !!!
- Heavy Metal
- Some of the 80's Rock and Roll
- Do-Wop music
- Some of the really annoying Rap
- N'Sync, Backstreet Boys, and anyone else who sounds like them.
- Brittney Spears,Christina Augeillera, and Madonna
Thats about all I can Think of. May The Force Be With You...
03-08-2002, 07:59 PM
:evil: I Hate any music with people, animals, Wookies, or whatever they are SCREAMING !!! That crap is really annoying and if anyone actually believes that it's music, they are :crazed: crazier :crazed: than I am. And that is pretty bad. May The Force Be With You...
P.S. John Williams' music is awesome. I can't wait to hear the new music for AOTC !!!
