Recently i've been enjoying the old school rap. But I'm usually a classic rock guy. What do you listen too.

I'd say mainly a metal/rock person but I love orchestral/symphonic/film scores on occasion. Lately it's been all about the '90's alternative rock and pop....for no real reason. But good.

Hey look, a bear!

Didn't you start a thread like this/wasn't there a thread like this months ago? But anyway, I like The Beatles.

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

My favorite styles are pseudo-indie rock (Radiohead, Neutral Milk Hotel), prog-rock (Pink Floyd, Yes, Emerson, Lake & Palmer), some classic rock (Led, Hendrix, Crosby Stills and Nash), and eletronica (Techno, Psytrance, Dance music in general, latest stuff by Madonna, Kraftwerk, Wendy Carlos), plus some stuff from Brazil (Chico Buarque)

Any Frank Zappa fans here? He is quite possibly my favorite musician. The man was a musical genius.

CLASSIC ROCK

I HATE THAT EMO SHIT

I can listen to just about anything if I enjoy it.

Just to rattle off a few names as they come to mind:
Queen, Mannheim Steamroller, Johnny Cash, Guns and Roses, Burl Ives, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Weird Al (White and Nerdy, BTW, is like a bloody themesong for me despite the fact that I've never done most of that stuff), Rossini, Schooner Fare.

I tend to shy away from newer stuff, but I recently dug out my old X-Files movie album, which includes Foo Fighters, Tonic, Filter, The Cure, Sting and more. Also, a coworker made up a disk for me to listen to which included Rasputina, Rammstein, Seraphim Shock and some other artists I can't think of at the moment.

Some kinds of music I just can't get into include modern classical (prepared pianos and composing with TV static...just not my stuff), heavy metal (I feel like the music is made to be loud so that the band can cover up that they stink) and excessively violent rap.

Anyone ever listened to Douglas Adams's "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" radio shows? I just recently discovered them, and they're hysterical!

Regarding old radio, I've been listening to some old Goon Show. It's funny but kinda slow paced...
