What OTHER types of music do you like?

Postby WeirdOne » Wed Jul 02, 2008 2:44 am

Recently I engaged in a little e-mail dialogue (whose quick replies will always make her the QUEEN OF INTERNET RADIO) with Nicole Marie. The topic involved my own recent explorations into the musical sub-genre of Pyscho-billy and Punk. I have discovered, through my daughter in the former, and Nicole Marie (due to an ancient host bio wherein I discovered she liked Wendy O. Williams) for the latter.

Normally (and that term is most definitely a tenuous one, given my online name) I would disdain these types of music, but I found certain artists within both genres to be extremely compelling.

Prior to this recent conversion (and near worship of Wendy O at this juncture), I had broadened my horizons to include Latin Jazz, with Tito Puentes being the obvious front runner (I even have a cat named Tito Purrentes), Blues, and 50's jazz (Charlie Parker, Coltrane, and Coleman Hawkins). Of course, given the fact that I came of musical age in the late 60's and 70's, I still like rock...from that era.

Having digressed to the point of absurdity, which is, overall, my most defining trait, what OTHER types of music are we all into (and I use "we" in a vain, and somewhat desperate atttempt to validate my online identity)?

I still enjoy some rock, and some Jazz. Big band music is cool. I have albums by Dizzie Gillespie, Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, and others.

I like what I like to call café music, which is kind of silly term, since all types of music are played in cafés. To me, this includes many types of small-ensemble or solo music: Dance tunes, International music, Belly-dancing music, folk music, etc.

When I first met my wife, she was a big fan of country music, and I listened to it with her, attending concerts, etc. I still enjoy some of the music, but not much. I remain a fan of Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot. I suppose both would fit into my loose definition of café music.

Stuck in the sixties and seventies, I'm afraid. Within that period, of course, reside a lot of hard rock, pop, soft rock, surf, country, acid rock, disco, and heavy metal, all of which I posess considerable quantities.

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

70's rock, recently became fond of doo wop, chorale music of many types.
Country & western, especially the hard core stuff, and older stuff.
Almost anything Dolly Parton - I love that quirky voice of hers.
Musicals, light opera (Gilbert & Sullivan esp). Slowly gaining appreciation for opera - I prefer the chorale music to the arias still.
Altoid - curiously strong.

This past year I have seen in concert:

Gordon Lightfoot
KD Lang
Leonard Cohen
Taj Mahal

So that would be folk and blues.... oh and I saw a band called Run with the kittens... thrash to me... so heavy metal. AND I also saw George Carlin... that was music to my ears.
