i tried to think of a genre of music that i don't like, but each time i thought of one, i remembered a few songs from each that i liked.

i thought of country, but then a bunch of songs from johnny cash, patsy cline (as sung by elmer fudd), right up to "red solo cup" came to mind.

opera: orff's "o fortuna", wagner's ring, "pagliacci", and "la boheme".


gangsta rap: public enemy, ll cool j, coolio, and black sheep.

old school rsp: digital underground, sugar hill, run dmc.


ok, so i gave up. i like everything. even indian and japanese when i'm in the mood and setting.

ok, wait. i just thought of one. i hate phillipino love songs.

Bucky, I bet I could suggest a couple of genre of music that you wouldn't like. I make my hubby wear head phones when he listens to his pipe organ concerts, bag pipe music, or Mongolian throat singers. Agh!!!

bt, my youngest used to listen to Gregorian Chant when he was studying. Not bad if it is in harmony, but that is hard to find. I blame myself for his taste in music. He grew up listening to Gregorian Chant, opera, classical, etc. I can listen to some of the old country songs, songs of the 50's, and a few songs of later years. But I do prefer the music that were my childhood lullabies.

Made it barely a half-minute into the video before both the kitty and I were crying out in discomfort!

I despised bagpipe music. When we lived in our first apartment I was resting on the living room couch. The woman in the unit across the hall cranked up her stereo with that stuff! I thought I was going to have a heart attack from the sudden NOISE! Years later the mall I worked at hosted the area's Patrolmens' Tattoo in our large, domed center of the mall. We worked on the 2nd floor right by the dome. When they came marching in through the doors leading to the main entrance and paraded into the center and played I actually got goosebumps. WAY different than some scratchy record! When there was a solitary player walking the grassy top of the perimeter wall he was playing taps at sunset. Got all sniffly, then took my turn singing the National Anthem. Quietly. Only Himself was close enough to hear. Yeah, I'm a flag-waving citizen of my country.

I do have more than a couple of favorites but these 2 probably pretty much top my list....
Never was a fan of Cher's music personally, but she does have an outstanding set of pipes! And I couldn't get into Stevie because she would be one of the women on Himself's "list" - IF I would even let him start one! Once I got over my jealous wife phase I liked her.

Aunt Bea, the local Cleveland Friday night movie show would play "Is That All There Is..." as it went off the air. In that context, the song always makes me chuckle. Not exactly the mood the composer and artist aimed for.

That is a really cool video! Never saw it before, but now I want to see the movie - already added it to my "watch later" list at the library. Not sure Himself would sit through it, but we have a smaller TV (20") that plays DVDs. Take it into the sunroom, lay on the futon, kitty on my tummy...Oh Yeah!

OK guys, I'm out of videos to watch! Post more when you run across something good.

I didn't know it was a movie...I just like the song.
