    What's your kind of music?

    Hi all,

    I want to start a thread with a theme, that's very interesting (I think).

    Whats your favorite kind of music, also meant over the years of your music experiancies.
    But pay attention........what you write, let's give some reflexions of your psyche

    For myself's taste it's very easy:

    I began in 1964 with my first (self) bought vinyl from the Rolling Stones. They follow my musical way till today.
    Later in the '60s I heard: Beach Boys, Beatles, Who, Cream, Traffic, Led Zeppelin. (no chewing gum music)
    The 70s began with Deep Purple, Pink Floyd....mid 70s with the Eagles, JJ Cale, also Soul ...James Brown, Wilson Picket, Otis Reading,
    The 80s with Michale Jackson, Disco all kind, etc.
    the 90s, my US travelling times: Garth Brooks and a lot of other stuff like this,
    2000: also Country Rock like Faith Hill........and more Blues....the real one ......John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Albert King, Steve Ray Vaughn, BB King, Clapton, and a lot more
    (Since 1980 on JBLs)

    Hey, Hanspeter...

    I was certain we'd another Thread on this, but I failed to locate it. Matters not. Always an interesting topic.

    Widget burned me onto Annie Lennox' "Medusa" - a stunner, even if over produced.

    I love anything by Lucy Kaplansky - particularly "Flesh and Bone" and "Ten Year Night", but that's 'cause I tend to wallow in Alt/Country... Her latest "The Red Thread" is outstanding. Check out her work as CryCryCry - we just started covering "Down by the River" to raging fan review at our New Mexico shows last week. Hmm-mm good...

    But, one of my favorite sources has become, and remains, "The Loft", XM Radio channel 50. Mike Marrone and company are doing a phenomenal job. Pete Fornatelle - ex of WNEW-FM, NYC - has just joined, and the teams programming is tasty. Best, because you can recline with a glass of fine wine, and just let them roll it for you, commercial free...

    A very, very close second, and only second due to brevity of the morning programming slot, is Dallas Dobro's morning show on KPIG in Santa Cruz, at (need RealOne due to RIAA royalties).

    some great stuff in there

    what a list
    but i didnt see the blues traveller in the list
    i especially like the album 4 if im not in a good mood
    it takes u through a whole range of emotion and by the end of it leaves you ready to face the day and not giving a crap about what was worring you
    cool sound but i suppose its not for everybody

    thats the recipe

    Anything except rap or hip-hop.
    There are two theories to arguing with women, but...neither has worked.

    I listen to so many different things in music. I recently picked up an album which is called Early Medieval Music up to 1300 and it is great. To me I cant even put together a top list because like in the movie Hi Fidelity I have to put it into top 5 lists for the situation.

    I do have to say though that Rage Against the Machine and A Perfect Circle are mind blowing on a pair of 4430's. But there is nothing like Skid Row at a volume too loud to be in the room

    - Roger Waters
    - Nick Cave and the bad seeds.
    - Portishead

    - Kari Bremnes (Norwegian)
    - Gotan Project
