    Yeah, I can't deal with crap music. It makes me feel ill. It's like claustrophobia. Although I do like a wide range of music, so maybe that would give someone with an untrained ear () the impression that I like everything.

    Jazz, classical, Latin music of all kinds...I was a hip-hop fan in junior high and part of high school...Stopped listening to it after a while, but still enjoy listening to it every now and then...though it's more of a guilty pleasure than anything usually. I also like Motown/classic soul/R&B at times...I have even developed a taste for some rock songs, but only a couple. My personal favorite is "Get up Get On" by the Skies of America. For classical music I love Ravel ("Pavane for a Dead Princess" is awesome!)...Also like "Bolero" and "Alborada del Gracioso"...Beethoven, Mahler, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Berlioz...All great. For jazz I like of course Miles Davis (INFJ...Yes), John Coltrane, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Bill Evans, Count Basie, JJ Johnson and plenty more... Latin music I like Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Selena, Cubanisimo, Machito, Antonio Carlos Jobim, etc. Hip-hop I liked Tupac, Method Man & Redman, Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre, the Beatnuts, Tribe Called Quest, etc. For Motown and R&B, pretty much any popular hit was great, but I especially loved stuff like Marvin Gaye/Tami Terrell, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder...I love "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and Stevie's "Ribbon in the Sky", "Another Star", etc.

    Sorry, there's no way I could pick 5.

    The top fives of the two INFJs that I know:

    Numero uno:
    1. Lyle Lovett
    2. James Taylor
    3. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (or any variation of the four)
    4. Carole King
    5. Music for pipe organ/Liturgical music, e.g. J.S. Bach, John Rutter and Olivier Messiaen.

    Numero dos:
    1. Drum 'n Bass
    2. Techno
    3. Trance
    4. Dance
    5. Anything with a strong backbeat

    Only pattern I can sense there is that they've got their niches, and don't stray much from them. Whereas, e.g, the two ESFJs I know can enjoy listening to almost anything.

    Music tastes are socially constructed. The songs or type of songs that people are drawn to within the culturally accepted artists/genres would be more telling. Some rock musicians have very soft mellow songs with deep lyrics. Saying you like a rock group isn't as informative as saying you like a few of their more mellow hits.

    I like Opera music but that's because I grew up in classical music (which I naturally rejected as a teen so I do love most of late 90's grunge). My grandmother was a classical vocal instructor and I still have the "classical ear" when it comes to singing. I also love words, so anything with an interesting story or that demonstrates a very common situation/mood is good for me. I am notorious for getting into a fight with the other half and blaring whatever pop song on the radio fits the situation. Give me an opera (most of them are past 'done' but it's like vocal olympics really) with a buttery rich mans voice (not too deep, a baritone like my sweetie) and I'm melted. Not that I would turn down a John Mayer type either.

    examples
    Summer Breeze
    Lydia
    Almost anything by Amos Lee
    Pink (yes, it's pop but the words are soo close to home!)

    I think this is all the genres I listen to....in no real order, except that the first two I listen to make up a combined total of at least 500 bands....


    death metal
    black metal
    thrash/crossover
    doom
    drone
    grindcore
    gothic metal
    ambient/dark ambient
    progressive metal/rock
    folk metal
    industrial
    harsh noise
    neofolk
    classical/neo-classical
    martial
    jazz
    fusion
    post-rock
    depressive rock
    sludge metal
    some metalcore (none of the crap that relies on breakdowns, though)
    industrial metal
    various experimental/avant-garde stuff


    So yeah....nothing mainstream or poppy, and nothing really upbeat/happy sounding, cause it seriously irritates me and puts me in a bad mood.

    Here's mine: Ejt07s Music Profile Users at Last.fm

    I mostly enjoy laid-back, calm music like The Album Leaf, but I've been known to fire up some Andrew W.K. and Pixies.

    As you can tell from my avatar I love Lady GaGa =)

    I'm a sucker for the oldies. I love The Beatles, The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Andy Williams...

    I've always been into Regina Spektor. I love her lyrics. They're like riddles

    I actually find a lot of music boring, current stuff anyways. I'm more into my oldies

    My bank account wishes my tastes were a little narrower, because doing a radio show and jumping genres every chance I get has put me in the poorhouse on few occasions. My latest thing is "world" music. Not the actual world music genre, but Brazilian soul, Turkish psych-folk, North Korean propagandistic pop, etc.

    But at the core, my record collection mostly consists of:

    60's free jazz (the Coltranes, Sun Ra, Eric Dolphy, etc.)
    60's-80's film scores (Ennio Morricone, Bernard Herrmann, etc.)
    80's college rock (Cocteau Twins, Husker Du, Mary Margaret O'Hara)
    86-93 golden age hip-hop (Eric B. & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Lord Finesse)
    90's indie rock (Sebadoh, Pavement, Archers Of Loaf)
