Everyone has their own taste, likes and dislikes, in music. I'm just curious to see what everyone likes. :)

I love almost anything, except country. I like rock, hip-hop, rap, techno, heavy metal. I'm always listening to the Hit List on my digital music channels on cable. I like classical when I'm trying to relax. I like dark stuff when I'm writing (think Queen of the Damned soundtrack).

I'm good with anything it seems. :biggrin:

I'm pretty eclectic. About the closest I come to a genre of music I dislike is C&W and teen pop. Even then I'll hear things that I like.

Until recently my favorite streaming radio station was Sing-Sing Radio from St. Malo, France. They were always surprising me with some techno, punk or reggae band I'd never heard of before but were very good.

Recently I've been listening to the CBC classical radio station. Mostly to get into the mood for the historical vampire romance I'm working on.

Your taste it the same as mine. I don't care for country much but I can pretty much find something I like in any category.

I'm a big rocker, especially Kansas, Bad Company, Guns N Roses, Aerosmith, Billy Squier, Bon Jovi, AC/DC... I LOVE David Cook (and for some reason, I find listening to his older pre-Idol stuff helps when I'm writing about vampires)
But I listen to a pretty big variety. Travis Tritt, Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey (loved her old stuff), Sugarland, John Mellencamp, Otis Redding...

Okay, I'm going to be the odd ball here. Country is great---very patriotic themes. Though some of the "lost love" songs can get depressing I can't stand hip-hop or rap. I'd rather hear nothing if that's the case! But I LOOOOVE Metallica and other deep gutteral songs. I also love Bach. At the same time, I love Neil Diamond. Classic rock, though, is probably what i listen to most. Words are important as well as melody. Probably from my upbringing playing the piano and then being in the percussion section in high school:-) Julie

I love any kind of music but I have my favourite bands - Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Green Day, The Killers, The Living End. There are others but the list would be very long if I continued. LOL

Hey Charmed Girl--
Green Day rocks! Love their Blvd. of Broken Dreams. And of course, Three Doors Down, Lifehouse, and, you're right, the list could go on and on and on. Julie

I am such an old hippie, classic rock is my absolute fav, but my kids have turned me onto rap and hip hop and other stuff. I am sort of like you Christie. I like a lot of different stuff especially when I am writing. I am a major Celtic music fan too!

My husband was a HUGE country fan when we met. Now, he still listens to it ocassionally, but he finds himself listening to the same music I do.

Now, our girls listen to anything and everything.

Oh gosh, I'd never wanna go back to my teens... or even early twenties. I'm soooo OVER all that these days. Even the hubby teasing about having a 4th baby just makes me shiver. LOL!

Sure, I'm only 31, but I've been married for 14 1/2 yrs and sooooo close to getting the 3rd off to school in only 2 yrs. I'm ready for some writing time that isn't interrupted by pleas for a juice cup. LOL

Catherine Bybee
October 19th, 2008, 11:37 PM
I hit 40 this year. Both my kids are in school and writing has taken over all my free time. It goes from juice cup to homework help.

ChristieSilvers
October 19th, 2008, 11:39 PM
Luckily my older two hardly ever need homework help. They brought home report cards last week and both made Star Honor Roll and straight A's. The oldest didn't have anything lower than a 96! I'm so proud of them.... And thrilled that they take after me and not daddy. LMAO!

Catherine Bybee

Catherine Bybee
October 19th, 2008, 11:52 PM
Sorry to say that the one that is 'Not so much' takes after me. I could care less when I was in Jr. High. Which is why I'm always in need of a grammar queen as a critique partner.

ChristieSilvers
October 19th, 2008, 11:57 PM
Aw, that's the way life goes. You never know what you'll be doing as an adult. Some people just hate school. My brother was the same way.

My sister hated it, but made great grades. She's so book smart, but terribly lacking in common sense. LOL Love her to death though.

My 9 year old spells like a champ. Rolls his eyes at his older brother all the time. During the homework hour... or 4 hours, he says to me. "I feel sorry for you mom." Refering to his brother who is pissing and moaning about the work.

ChristieSilvers
October 20th, 2008, 11:34 AM

October 20th, 2008, 04:22 PM
my boys can spell better than the older 2 mainly because the older ones have mobile phones and have learnt 'text talk' now their spelling terrible.

ChristieSilvers

Text talk is bad! LOL Half the time I can't even bring myself to use it.

hollie

I don't understand it and if the kids don't use english if they message me i don't answer it's getting bad but at least the schools are against it

I ban rap! I've brainwashed my oldest into loving my music. hehehe
Wicked mom, I know!

ChristieSilvers
October 20th, 2008, 06:03 PM
LOL! Nothing is really banned in my house. I'd prefer not to hear country, but I can always plug my ears with my mp3 player (which I tend to do very often). LOL

hollie
October 20th, 2008, 06:09 PM
I don't ban anything either if they want to listen to it and i don't i have a volume button and and once i've turned the volume down she knows not to turn it up again

I'm a pretty eclectic listener too. Really just depends on my mood. The only thing I don't like is rap.
Some of my favorites off the top of my head are Collective Soul, Evanescence, Nickeback, Hinder, Clannad, Enya, Lifehouse, Aerosmith and U2.

ChristieSilvers
October 21st, 2008, 11:59 AM
Great list! I enjoy almost all of those. Never heard of Clannad though.

querida
October 21st, 2008, 06:02 PM
If you've ever seen the Harrison Ford movie where he plays Jack Ryan (FBI guy, or maybe it's CIA?), you've heard Clannad. They did the theme music for it, called "Harry's Game", I believe. I wish I could remember the movie's title...maybe Dangerous Games? Clannad has really pretty, haunting, Celtic music.

ChristieSilvers
October 21st, 2008, 10:14 PM
I don't think I've seen that movie. I'll have to look up Clannad. :-)

I like a little bit of everything, though my fav. is 80's music. I wont get into details of how much I love it, but I'll name a few of my fav. artist (some 80's, some not)

1.Pat Benatar (love Love LOVE her, hehe. She was the first concert I went to, and I saw her again back in August) :notworthy:

2. Madonna (Duh, it's MADONNA, hehe)

3. Tori Amos (I just love her music, I love her piano playing)

4. Fall Out Boy (I love you Patrick Stump, hehe. What can I say, I swoon whenever I hear that boy sing.

5. Katy Perry (She kissed a girl, and everyone liked it :winkiss: lol)

6. (I was only going to do 5, but I have to give a quick shout out...) Journey and Genisis (Duh, STEVE PERRY, 'nuff said, and Phil Collins.)

I love that song too. Everytime I hear it I think of one of my best friends. She is BI and she made me a tag with two half-naked women and some of the words to the song on it. LOL She's a big flirt!

I would share, but I don't know just how naughty we can get here on CTR. Since there are boobies showing it might be a no-no. LOL

Tell me about it, it's been in my head for months! I still can't get rid of it. I had it on my myspace for a while, and I have the CD so I always listen to it at work, it's also my ringtone and my callertune. But I've had to cut back on it, my 5 year-old nephew is walking around singing it now. I'm getting dirty looks from my step-dad :whistilin: We all feel 5 year-olds shouldn't be thinking about kissing girls and liking it.

The same thing happened to me when the hairdresser re-did my streaks. I have lots of blonde streaks in my hair and when my hairdresser coloured all my hair a violet mixed with brown the streaks tinged purple. I was so disappointed when it washed out. I loved the purple colour. Next time she dyes it it's going to be full red with blonde and black streaks. I can't wait! LOL

One night I went out to Dinner with them and my fiance was working late, anyway there was this girl there with the shortest shorts on you'd ever seen. I swear her pants looked like a belt they were that tiny. They were totally speechless for the whole night and I couldn't turn their comments back on them. It was so unfair!

Hey Catherine, I'm with you on that one! I've just raised my 17-year old son listening to the type of music I like to listen to, so it's what he likes---country, classic and soft rock, some heavy metal---Metallica to be specific. Of course, he does like the modern versions of rock/alternative as well. As far as rap and hip-hop go, "Low" is about as low as I can go on that style (yes, I lump them together as one). Why would I want to hear it in my house when I can go to various sections in town and hear the same uneducated style of speaking out on the streets? Of course, I was raised on Simon & Garfunkel and Peter, Paul, & Mary. Guess I'm just an old fogey at heart!
