What does everyone listen to?

What music does everyone here like to listen to? I figure that could be a good place to start some conversation that maybe will lead me to some new music to try out!

I listen to mostly 90s music as I grew up with it and just still love it, but trying to branch out sometimes. So bands I usually listen to are:

Pearl Jam
Better Than Ezra
Ben Folds
Soundgarden/Chris Cornell solo stuff
Wallflowers
Smashing Pumpkins

After that I have a weird mix of stuff... 90s, movie/tv soundtracks, etc.

Soon will be a TV thread and then we can really get into game theory. :lol:

I listen to a real eclectic mix of music types. A lot just depends on what I am doing.

Working out:
Loud, angry music. Five Finger Death Punch, Gansta Rap

Working and hanging out:
Classical, 80's, Show Tunes, a couple of foreign radio stations (Russian Language). Lots of Podcasts and Audiobooks.

This describes me perfectly with the exception of Russian radio and show tunes.

I'll add the Stand Up Comedy channels on Pandora.

I've found I cycle through different things according to my moods and figured out how to manage my over all mood by shifting my media content. If I'm down and blah, the comedy makes me laugh and improves my mood. If I'm angry and pissed off about something then the heavy metal and gangster rap fuel the fire. If I'm burned out and tired, classical music soothes my soul. Nostalgic? 80's and 90's music fits the bill. The key is to connect with my inner self and find what I like and need.

Yeah I should definitely add podcasts and comedy- those both get me through the day along with sports radio here sometimes.

Working at home lends itself to a lot of listening to music, podcasts, and binge watching TV shows when I'm on my feet packing boxes. Definitely change around by mood and all that good stuff as well.

Wow, Rubin's list is comprehensive!

When working - movie themes. Otherwise a lot of alternative rock, but I will listen to a bit of everything.

I think eclectic would probably describe my musical tastes too.

My musical device / playlist can include everything from The King's Singers to Godsmack, depending on mood. I'd say the only music I really never got into (can't stand) is rap (minus the Beastie Boys in their day.)

My kids are also thespians, so if someone isn't belting a show-tune in my house, there's usually one playing. (Or they're singing along to re-runs of The Office.)


How 'bout this related to music: What was the last concert / musical event you attended?

Last concert was Jimmy Buffett. Before that was Bruno Mars and Maroon 5.

Metal. 80s hair metal to black metal and every metal genre in between. Oh and Pink Floyd. I mean who doesn't recognize the genius minds that were Pink Floyd. If there is a heaven I am sure that David Gilmore playing "Marooned" is on a 24 hour loop.

This makes me feel old. :roll: (I am old) ;) I would list Beatles, Crosby-Stills-Nash-Young, Chicago- before they went easy listening, Earth-Wind-Fire, Santana, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, etc. I do like Michael Buble, Norah Jones, tierney Sutton, Harry Connick. Most of my listening is Classical and mainstream Jazz. Guys like Josh Redman, Yellow Jackets, Sonny Stitt, Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, and of course, Charlie Parker.

Lots of random R&B/pop (I need to stay relevant for my students)

Lots of 90's alternative

My favorite was probably Ryan Adams (just found out what I always suspected, he is really big jerk and creep- NY Times article this week).

I guess Wilco will be my new soundtrack for a while...

Pretty much everything, from ancient to modern. Well, OK, some rap isn’t music. It is just poor quality poetry set to a loud beat. But then some A. Hat was playing his loud at 11:30-2:00 am so today I may just be angry at rap.

But, I have CDs of everything from American First Nation, to Polynesian, to Celtic, to Gregorian chants, to classical (lots of classical) to movie soundtracks starting with the “movie soundtracks” called “opera,” up through Gilbert & Sullivan, Rogers & Hammerstein, Andrew Loyd Webber, Roger Williams. As well as some 70s, & 80s. Churchy stuff excluding MoTab.

I listen on the radio to classical or oldies or current hits, depending on mood and where we are. (There isn’t much by way of radio up where we live in Summer at Bear Lake but Western Cowboy music, so yeah I listen to that.)

My last concert..um..I will just name some that stand out as exceptional. Pavarotti when he was in San Antonio and sang with their orchestra. Fred Rodgers reading Peter & Wolf by T. Berlin Philharmonic. Boston Pops. Or, if you are talking about something besides symphony orchestras, um I have to go W—-a——y back to Simon & Garfunkel
