What kind of MUSIC do you listen to?
« on: February 15, 2009, 05:25:39 AM »

I listen to variety of music actually but the kind of music that makes me to be "carried away" most is LIGHT ROCK LOVE SONG like Thank You for Loving Me of Bon Jovi, Count on You by Tommy Shaw, I Love You by Climax Blues Band, etc.

Also if you are listening to Contemporary Christian Music, whose work do you listen to?

Thanks for sharing.

Mike,

I am a big fan of all kinds of music. My favorite pop artist of all time is Cliff Richard, my favorite 'Contemporary Christian' artists are Iona, Larry Norman and Kerry Livgren (formerly of the band Kansas). My favorite Christian metal band is Bride (who have also been dragged out of the traditional church and are now preaching the salvation of all - quite powerfully, I might add).

I am a big fan of classic rock bands - Chicago, Styx, ELO, Toto, Foreigner, Kansas, Beatles.. I could go on.

I enjoy a lot of jazz (not the 'screechy' jazz) - Pat Metheny, Candy Dulfer, Duke Ellington, Count Basie,
etc.

I'm not big into country but I like Asleep At The Wheel, Johnny Cash, Nickel Creek, Alison Krauss and probably a few others.

And of course: classic R&B / Funk (James Brown, Earth Wind & Fire, Heatwave, Isley Brothers.. I could go on.

I enjoy classical when I am in the mood, particularly Bach. I also thoroughly enjoy just about everything Christopher Hogwood does. And, I've been known to enjoy some of the more progressive classical music such as the music by Arvo Pärt.

Pop music is nice too.. and I enjoy a lot of the artists.

Music is a wonderful gift from God!

It used to be a huge idol to me, and for years I gave it up almost completely as I did not want it to take prominence in my life over the Lord. Now I enjoy it in moderation, and now it is a blessing again. :)

I listen to a wide variety of music. Christian is my main thing at the moment. Some of my favorites are Lincoln Brewster, Kutless, Thousand Foot Krutch, Disciple, Natalie Grant, and Mercyme to name a few. Rock on dudes!! :) ;) :D ;D

Hi Mike,

            I prefer mostly Rock type music, not too much of the current variety. The exception
            being the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

            Listen to some samples below:

                                           http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgzo8O1trSE

                                           http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73_SY6dAeT4

                                             
                                            Enjoy the music, Samson.

There's nothing I don't enjoy --at least in small doses.  I'm more of a 'song' guy than a 'genre' guy, and I still prefer the musics I grew up on.  I pretty much quit following 'new' music about the time of Nirvana and REM, both of which I liked, but I still hear current songs on the radio that I enjoy--just not enough to go buy a CD.   :D 

If it has soul, I like it.  My favorite band has always been (and remains) Jethro Tull.  Nothing has knocked them off for power, interest, and variety.

But most of what I listen to these days is 'silence'.  I enjoy music more when I'm not inundated with it.  Since I also try to make it, it helps me to be a little washed out and hungry.

I listen to alot of different styles, from Comtemporary to Rock, Celestial to New Age, Pop to Country,
Opera to Jazz, R&B to Dance, Latin to celtic, 60's to today.

It  prolly easier to tell what i don't like. Such as the Osmonds, rap, covers, anything Disney related, anthing diva related, anything american fido related, hevy metal related, kiss, copy cat artisit, Nikcalodian related, anything Mtv of present related, TBN related, bee bop, hip hop, madonna and her scrouge of nit wits, comercial related and anythig the radio stations push.

:)

basically if the siinger does not play an instrument i am suspect to what contribution the singer is making to the music they peddle.

Music, what a great topic. My wife says I am stuck in the 70s early 80s when it comes to music. My favorite kind of music is ROCK. Everything from Styx to journey. Rush,van hallen,Boston Judas priest, motley cure, y'all get the pitcure. speaking of van hallen, my brother and I went to see them last yr. I remember I seen them in the 80s and they kicked butt. Everyone was in their teens or early 20s. Last yr. when I saw them, they had 2 generations of people. This time it was moms and dads taking their kids to see Van Hallen. Talking about a trip. It would have been a great concert if David Lee Roth could sing. Seems like He lost his voice over the yrs. He sounded really bad. Yes, I am stuck in the 70s. This yr. my mom my wife and I are going to see the Eagles, and Meatloaf. Two of my moms favorits. She also loves Journey,and Styx along with queen and a few others. My mom jams when it comes to rocking at concerts.

"Granny" is by far my favorite song,
I can listen to most of Dave Mathews music.

I think  "You`re so vain" by Carly Simon is delightful,
 and Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac) has a beautiful voice;
 but Jimi Hendrix can play.

This little light of mine,
 ;D
 I`m gonna let it shine.

Wow! It amazes me how music really influences all, if not, most people!

I'm in my mid-30s but I kind of also stucked in 70s and 80s music (although I can still ride along with the 90s music).  Why 70s?  Well, ask that to my uncles and Dad, hehe.  They influenced my taste in music.  Who wouldn't?  During my school days, I often heard them playing The Cars, Eagles, Scorpions, and such.  Although I literally swallowed everything I heard from what they were playing, when I began to understand the difference of good music to not (that is, not only the beat, etc. but actually reading and understanding the lyrics) I started to 'dispose' them from my mind.

QUESTION!

I live in Philippines.  I really really want to purchase music from internet.  But most legitimate companies like rhapsody, yahoo, itunes, do not accept purchases from Philippines.  I was attempted to buy to some 'russian' sites that sell mp3 super duper cheap!  But I hold because of 'legal issues'.  What do you recommend?  Or is any other way to buy from rhapsody, etc.?

I love Jazz music, I have since I was in middle school. I don't like all this contemporary stuff, just anything between 1920-1960.
Before then I was a victim to hip hop and gangsta rap!
I don't really listen to anything anymore unless I hear it off chance and like it.
I love a good love song though.
here's a couple of my favorite songs:
Dave Brubeck Quartet
(Featuring the best alto player I've ever heard Paul Desmond)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kc34Uj8wlmE&feature=related
Amy Winehouse
Moodys Mood for love
I like the way she sings this version!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHho1IxcjbE&feature=related

hope you enjoy!

Hello all
Dave ,i think like you,just want to add my take on music,lately the song has to sound good
and also the lyric for me even to listen too,for me if the lyric don't sound right its trashed even
if the music sounds good,needless to say i am very selective what i listen too.
music from the 50s 60s 70s,classic rock,classical,musicals, jazz ,are mostly my chooses.

Always love the "what music.." topic.......

Like many I tend to revert back to my youth.  Then and now love(ed) the Eagles, Styx, Foreigner, Journey, Def Leppard.  Have seen all in concert recently and they can still bring it.  Never purchased any Heart stuff but saw them this summer and they are incredible. 

My ipod actually includes a little Elvis and the soundtrack to the Lord of the Rings!

If it is of the "Christian" variety......seen Petra too many times to count.  Enjoy the Hillsongs stuff.     

My 15 year old son is in to groups like the Devil Wears Prada, Underoath, etc.  I can't undertand the words but I am guessing my folks felt the same way about some of my stuff!

Thanks for letting me play along.   :)

Hi Dave in Tenn:
 Folk metal is 'heavy metal' with traditional folk melodies infused into it; in addtion to the standard 'rock' instruments, they use recorders, bagpipes, violins, accordians, and other folk instruments. Here is a Celtic folk metal band called Eluveitie (music only!):

Daywalker, do you like any old In Flames?
