I have a Music Log Blog athttp://nao1music.blogspot.com/where I list what I do listen to. I also run the Kinks internet mailing list http://kinks.it.rit.edu/maillist/and am on Moody Blues, ELO and the Move mailing lists. In addition to them I probably most listen toSqueezeKeaneThe KillersBruce SpringsteenThe SmithereensElvis CostelloThe Beach BoysThe Beatles (together and solo)They Might Be GiantsVan MorrisonCheap TrickREMU2Simon and Garfunkel (together and solo)Tom PettyColdplayFountains of Wayne
To be honest I rarely listen to contemporary music at all, unless driving with my wife or at home. At those times she chooses the music, generally Streisand, Celene Dion or Josh Groban.While driving alone I will most often simply turn to either a Classical Music station or one of the local college stations which play jazz. At work I will go online to Beethoven.com, which I discovered while working in Connecticut.I do have a half dozen CDs my car which I will sometimes pop in.In Season: The Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons AnthologyThe Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 1Endless Summer: The Beach BoysThe Beatles: 1962-1966Jazz: an anthology from Columbia I picked up several years ago at a yard sale.South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (the movie soundtrack)Yeah, it doesn't make sense to me either.
Looking at my iTunes, I can see that the songs I've played most frequently are by:AirAlison GoldfrappCakeCalexicoClannadThe Cowboy JunkiesThe Dandy WarholsDead Can DanceThe DecemberistsDiana KrallDie Toten HosenKayahThe KillersKylie MinogueMaroon 5New OrderNick Cave and the Bad SeedsThe PixiesRufus WainwrightTravisI thought that would be the most interesting way to check what I listen to, because I often think people subconsciously self-edit when they try to come up with their list of favorite artists off the top of their head. I certainly wouldn't have thought Calexico or Maroon 5 were among the top played artists on my hard drive, and I probably wouldn't have thought of Kylie either.What made you think of the question, Alex?
I think music often reveals much of our soul, so when I thought I wonder what Bob or Derek or anyone here plays, it is a desire to know them better.
Well said! Musical taste is a reflection of personality, certainly. It would be interesting to work out where the overlaps lie. I also like Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel, but I don't have any of their music here - it's on cassette back in Poland. Cat Stevens was such a part of my childhood - I have a hankering to listen to him now that I've been reminded of him thanks to your comment!
J-pop and soundtracks
Customer: Hi, do you have the song "I Just Called To Say I Love You?" It's for my daughter's birthday. Barry: Yea we have it. Customer: Great great... Well, can I have it? Barry: No, you can't. Customer: Why not?! Barry: Because it's sentimental tacky crap that's why. Do we look like a store that sells "I Just Called to Say I Love You"? Go to the mall! Customer: What's your problem?! Barry: Do you even know your daughter? There's no way she likes that song! Oh oh oh wait! Is she in a coma?
I found Korn's very best for 7 bucks new. So I bought it. I am really amazed when new music is cheap. It almost seems like downloading has made music for non downloaders available for cheap.I could be wrong though.
