Music taste..

All through middle school I listened to country music only (Hank JR), through high school it was heavy metal (Metallica).

I evidently have a wide and varied taste in music. My Itunes is filled with a weird selection. I have stuff like Metallica, Pink, Mixalot, Doc Watson, Chuck Berry, Alizee (French), Elvira, Shakira, I even have bagpipe and fife music. All my friends think I've lost it.

Right this second I have Shakira's La Tortura playing.


You guys listen to any weird stuff?

Mostly classical, since that is my major.

Berlioz, Mahler, Beethoven, Schubert. All of it

But I also listen to a lot of Dave Matthews Band, Beatles and jazz like Kenny Garret, Miles, Chris Potter and so on

Banihex,
You didn't even have to mention Miles, with Kenny Garrett in there.... I actually like Amandla and Tutu, when I'm in the right mood.
And I saw Chris Potter once when he tour with the Dan one year, he is a great player, IIRC he played alto, and did some tenor work as well.
Tuba is your forte right? I would ask you, what got you into tuba, and symphonic music? Just question, as many younger people just DO NOT listen to any music other than todays Pop music, and its subgenres. I have been living with a minor fear that the audience for "traditional" music, Jazz, Symphony, Classical, etc, was literally dying, never to be replaced....

That music is so mellow...
I like the music that makes you yell and jump around....

But as my father once said, " Music that is intended for the muscles can't possibly be good for the mind"

So maybe I'll start taking some notes from you guys... or perhaps my mind is already lost...

rmr, I started playing tuba in 8th grade, and it wasnt even by choice...my band director just told me to play it (which is how 99% of tuba players start..not by choice!) wasnt a serious thing until I was a junior in high-school, then I realized I wanted to make music my life. Now I go to the New England Conservatory in Boston, another forum member here goes to school with me too, georgenickson.

I don't think "classical" or especially jazz music will ever die off, at least completely... There are more people into these genres than most realize

The only things on my MP3 player are recent Penn Jillette shows and Blowin' Smoke shows. But my some of my 200+ CD's include Willie Nelson, Alanis Morrisette (yeah its embarassing), Rammstein, Alkaline Trio (Actually a local morbid punk band), John Lennon, Bob Segar, and Yonder Mountain String Band. So I'm all over the place.

I tried to make a list, but there are way too many. So.... I exported my Itunes library into Excel and attatched it here if anyone want to see. There are currently 324 albums on the list. Thats probably about a third of what I own. Enjoy!!

I have a small collection of cds (around 60 + 20 or so burned disks), I get the music I want from the local Library, then rip it. I only have 15 gigs of music, 3500 songs

I'd say Hammon wins the award for most the most varied collection considering what is listed is a third of what he really has.

I have more than 75 days of continous music. 70% is "classical" 25% is Jazz, 5% is other, like rock and pop stuff of today.. Most of which I have still yet to listen to... My library is a bit biased...

Anybody have OurTunes?

Never heard or ourtunes before. I am looking at it now, and it looks interesting. Is it worth the DL?

Jason, it is tricky sometimes to use, especially with wireless. If you have two computers that are on the same network, i.e. i brought my mac and just plugged it into your network, we could "borrow/download" each others music and keep it.

A lot of people do this in coffee shops with wireless, just get on the same network and see what music you like you find on other peoples itunes and download it (never tried, but heard that works well)... I don't steal much music anymore, I used ourtunes recently to transfer all my music from an old comp to my new one.

Also, I think you can transfer music via IP address too, though I haven't that either, but would like to!

The music that I listen to is also all over from Aaron Copland, Aerosmith, Frank Sinatra, the Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Sting, U2, Mozart, and many others. I’m not going to list everything. There are a few I don’t want to admit that I like!!!

I have one of the widest ranges of music of people I know. On my iPod right now, you will find every single genre between Opera and Techno. I even have some techno re-mixed opera. I also like rock, jazz, -- almost anything but country or rap. I can take country and rap in small doses, but that's about it.

Allright, I admit it! So do I. But I've never listened to it so I don't know why I still have it.

Right now now I'm listening to GDRADIO.net... some great live stuff. I also frequent archive.org for the live shows of the dead and Yonder Mountain String Band.
