What type (kind) of music you like ?
« on: August 01, 2019, 05:24:17 AM »
Hi all.
I like almost any kind of music except heavy metal rock (For me, that's noise, not music) country and rap.
Here is a list (with link when I found it on You Tube)
Of course, since I am 71 years old,
I'm from the Beatles era.

  I'm 68. Nowadays straight ahead Jazz, Classical, Blues, R&B from 60's and 70's and some rock now and then. No Hip Hop, Rap or todays R&B.

59 years old.

I like jazz pre 1970(roughly)

I like classical

I like blues

I like country pre 1980(roughly)

I like some prog rock(Genesis a particular fave)

I selectively like a bunch of things played by college stations on the left end of the dial. I guess it’s called ‘alternative rock’

I like reggae, Celtic, polka and classic soul in limited doses.

I like older rock in general, but here on Long Island a few radio stations play the same 30 songs over and over and over and over, so the phrase ‘classic rock’ makes my skin crawl.

I am always listening for something new that I like. I’ll make a beer analogy for no particular reason... Two years ago I thought all beer styles were out and perfected. Then along comes the New England IPA style. And I love it. There’s music out there... We just have to look.

Well, 55 here, and I enjoy Rock, Punk, Alternative, Grunge, Garage, Electronica, Acid Lounge, from the '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s. Lots of poorly recorded stuff in there, but some very good as well :wink:
But also Jazz/Blues(Baker, Brubeck, Parker, Ella, etc) and Classical (Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, etc)

At 67 I find my taste are 95% Classical and Jazz, with the occasional folk, rock, Lyle Lovett, occasional Windham Hill stuff, or musicals.  I've always liked classical, but have fallen hard for jazz of the 50's and 60's over the last decade.   The Led Zeppelin of my youth seldom gets played now days.
