Man, I must be the only one who doesn't really like music. I mean I do like some stuff, but it's hard to find.
I like AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Hellbillies, Clutch, Sentenced, Poisonblack, and ofc some Zeppelin, Hendrix etc.

Pretty much, all music - from a Gershwin tune (i.e. Rhapsody in blue) to (some) opera; but my fave is...

Classic Rock (Stones, Doors, etc.).

Yup, that's my preference too.

Oh yeah, I like '30s & '40s big band too.

And Django Reinhardt.

I'm like Claire, in that I don't much care for today's artists. Some of the music is okay, but nothing that makes me want to have a copy of it.

I don't really follow any artists, I may love one of their albums and hate the next. Whatever music clicks with me at the moment, I like, can be any genre.

If I had to break it down, country would be the older stuff, can't really get into modern country. Rap, not really my thing. I run slacker and Pandora from my phone via blutooth in the car, so I have a wide range to choose from, I match music to my mood.

You Tube seems to be broken today, I can't get anything to load. I was going to show The Muppets doing Bohemian Rhapsody or C is for Cookie by Cookie Monster. Yes, I am easily entertained.

Back in my university days, a good friend of mine and I could recite (off key but we new all the words) Bohemian Rhapsody by heart, word for word and all the changes in tempo, etc. If we had a few drinks we would break into it....whether or not the rest of the crowd wanted to listen or not! Freddy Mercury, who was alive then, had nothing to worry about!

I am like others regarding new music, but its not that I don't like it, I just don't know it. I have to say I do like Alicia Keyes and love her "New York".

I also forgot to mention that I use light classical music to do my relaxation exercises and classic rock for my walks.

And as many who know me will attest ANYTHING by Neil Diamond is tops on my list.

I love Queen, I am also a fan of some of the newer music, just don't know the names of the artists or songs. I hear them on the radio and am lucky if I can remember a phrase long enough to Google it.
