    My favorite artists are David Crowder, Leeland Mooring, Jesus Culture, Little Wayne, Eminem, and Blueprint. And Dashboard Confessional is cool.

    • It is a powerful song with good lyrics. I don't care if people think he is too mainstream. Eminem is very gifted and actually can sing well when he wants to.

  • Had to go with alternative just because I like lots of obscure music. 'Dark/Punk Cabaret' is probably my favorite genre at the moment. Also a big fan of Baltic Folk, Anti-folk and anything with a 'ragtime' feel.

    Dance/Trance is probably my least but I also dislike most RnB/Country/Rap

    • Naw,i don't really care for R/B...unless its Keith Sweat.No one can beg like keith sweat! hehe

  • I adore various subgenres of Rock, Metal (Classic, Power, Doom, Speed, 80's Glam/Hair, etc.), Classical, Opera, BigBand Jazz, Folk, and true Country (I hate the contemporary pop-hybrid junk.)

    My least favorites are probably Rap, Hip Hop, Pop-Country, and Smooth Jazz (among others of that genre.)

  • Pop, R&B, Country, and Classical like Mozart. I hate dub-step and heavy metal because it just really makes me cringe and gets on my nerves but I guess everybody is entitled to a favorite so I'm fine with it as long as you don't play it anywhere near me.

  • too many music types to have one favorite. That would be like favorite type of food. but depending on what I am doing or how I feel some work best. Before I need to be...well me at work on a tough assignment... certain hip hop is the choice. If I am on my way to surf... classic rock works best. If traveling. Spanish flamenco is great. mountain biking needs some techno, alternative, and even US bluegrass. running.. here is an odd one. opera. really. go on a 10k run and try out Rigoletto. Then just working on a tech report, classical. light stuff. Mozart usually. that is a start.

  • Different genres?

    It's interesting to compare this version of Mozart - Rondo Alla Turca ( by an orchestra) http://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=se_Swf7-68M&feature=related

    with Dave brubeck's " Blue rondo a la turk" link jazz versionv=rH2aeRzO9xk&feature=related

    wih a classical guitar version http://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=b1gz0P-Pjis (4 hands guitar! )

    then now with a metal version of the same http://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=5l5NFssmHrk

    Here Rachmaninoff plays it in his brilliant way: http://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=JbiLcV7RBgA

    Enjoy! (you'll easily find many other versions of this master piece Mozart loved)

    • link here is some classical guitar also thnx man for more great music

    • That guy has been to music school, he's great! :)

      Meet a great artist: Narciso Yepes - Estudio 11 de Villa-Lobos link

      But Villa Lobas has written better than that piece (I already posted it, I think : Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 link I love that

      The one I posted was sung by Vittoria de Los Angeles , to compare wih Joan baez, wasn't it?

    • Wow man Yepes has an amazing touch. Villa-Lobos Bachianas Brasileiras is AMAZING-sends chills down my spine. Yes and I like Vittoria de la Angeles. The high parts were so pretty

  • I listen to almost any kind of music but I guess the one genre that pops out from the rest is metal. I usually have different seasons for different kind of music. But my favorite genre right now is electro house. Least favorite is all that pop/dance stuff that is played 24/7 in radio and clubs and everywhere.

    • My favorite song.. it kind of changes, sometimes even many times a day. Right now I'd say it's this link It's my friends' band and to me it's kind of hard to believe that they still don't have a record deal.

    • I like it. It is unique and he has great vocals

  • Out of those? I'll pick 'Pop Rock' assuming you mean 'Rock and Pop', and Pop is tied favourite, I love pop from Beach Boys era- to Bowie through to like, Katy Perry and Kesha, can't get enough, and I love rock-stemmed music like Psychedelia and Doorsy stuff, and punk and prog and everything, but my real kick is Jazz. Charles Mingus, John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk, Albert Ayler, Sun Ra, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, and I'm just beginning to get into it. I love Free Jazz and Hard Bop the best.

  • I enjoy music with heavy, chugging breakdowns and men growling about destruction and mayhem. I dislike music with twangy chords and men whining about how their wives left and took their house, truck, kids and dog with them.

    Though any sort of music is enjoyable in the proper time and place.

  • Trance

    House

    Liquid DnB

    Liquid dubstep (not the regular sh*tty dubstep)

    Film Scores (movie soundtracks)

    Anything with a strong melody, beautiful vocals, and progression and breakdown of intensity. If it gives me goosebumps, it's good. I don't listen to music for the lyrics much, but the sound and what emotions that sound gives me.

    I actually started listening to hiphop and alternative rock when I was young, but moved into electronic. So I also like some rock, hiphop, rap, reggae, folk, pop, a bit of almost everything. Can't say I've haven't heard at least some good sounding songs in every genre. There are a few genres that I don't understand how people could possibly like them but that doesn't matter.

  • Tough call because music is my passion and escape that varies depending on my mood. What can I say music is the universal language. I believe in giving anything a fair chance though because like I said in your other question I find myself very cultural. That said here's some middle eastern music that ends on one of favorite movies. http://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=wrEw4f5RGGc

    Both my CD and mp3 collection are a variety of genres but there's mostly alternative and heavy metal just because that captures my emotion best.

  • i love most music, from alternative stuff to pretty mainstream pop rock. the only music I don't really like is heavy metal style screamo stuff (I don't want to listen to depressed people scream to a background of loud drums) and rap, extreme hip-hop stuff (again, I don't want to listen to a damaged guy talk about the crime on his estate to a bass line).

    I hate commercialized music. Armin van Buren used the name " Trance" as a brand which ruined the meaning of the genre. Progressive House is next, all thanks to $$$.
