    Default Share your favorite Music

    What music do you enjoy? From folk metal to country to baroque and back again, what songs, symphonies, or artists do you enjoy?

    The ultierior motive here is that I received a bunch of iTunes gift cards over the holidays, and I'm looking to spend them. Alas, I find myself at a loss, and I am looking for suggestions. My collection pretty much has most of the genres represented so far (except for rap and hip-hop which I can't really appreciate on account of having almost no rhythm).

    If anyone has any good recommendation for some good string-quartets, or other Baroque/Classical music, that would be great.

    I'm also looking for some good folk music, alternative, or techno. (I need some good ambient music to listen to while coding).

    To start things off, here is a list that I usually post on other profile sites:

    John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Mozart, Vivaldi, World-beat, Twelve Girls band, Bach, 311, Green Day, DC Talk, Newsboys, Led Zepellin, Queen, Enya, Loreena McKennitt, Legend of Zelda (I have a collection), and a plethora of other eclectic selections

    I'm a little hazy on genres, but here goes...I'm gonna go for artists, not specific songs....

    Folk-esque (?) music: Gordon Lightfoot, Burton Cummings, Joni Mitchell, Great Big Sea

    Sometimes classical-sounding prog rock: Genesis (huge range though), Le Orme, Martin Orford (hard to find), ELP, the Strawbs, IQ (probably my favourite band)

    Random favourites, mostly rock-ish, mostly well-known, I think: Metallica, Andy McKee (neat pure guitar stuff), Beatles, Billy Joel, CCR, Deep Purple, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, RHCP, Santana, Steve Hackett, Sublime, Rush, Yes, Anathema

    I led zeppelin, too.

    hmmm... you're music tastes are kinna different from mine! I guess I could point out some stuff that you'd never thought of listening to though!

    you may enjoy the soundtrack to Everything Is Illuminated- it has quite a few bands that I'm quite fond of on it!

    You may like Leningrad (can't type in in the cyrillic alphabet here )
    The Gypsy Kings
    Gogol Bordello
    Seu Jorge
    Manu Chao

    And being deeply in love with Irish music I wouldn't be myself if not advocating
    The Pogues
    The Dubliners
    Stiff Little Fingers
    Flogging Molly
    Dropkick Murphys (American Boston Irish)

    ummm... yeah... I guess I'll stop there!

    I just used my Christmas iTunes! Here's what I bought:

    The new Radiohead SUCK IT FMWARNER
    Manu Chao, La Radiolina (nice, but I like his older stuff better I think)
    Dire Straights self-titled (pre-Money for Nothing, nice bluesy feel)
    Spoon, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
    Mastodon, Leviathan
    LCD Sound System, Sound of Silver
    Modest Mouse, We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank

    do you already know of electronica artists you like? What is your definition of ambient?

    My INTJ roommate likes Gabriel & Dresden:
    MySpace.com - Gabriel & Dresden - SAN FRANCISCO, US - Electronica / Pop / Progrsv House - www.myspace.com/gabrielanddresden
    He also likes deadmau5 (listen to Faxing Berlin):
    MySpace.com - deadmau5 - Toronto, CA - Other / Electronica - www.myspace.com/deadmau5

    Hernan Cattaneo seems sort of ambient:
    MySpace.com - Hernan Cattaneo - Buenos Aires - House - www.myspace.com/hernancattaneo

    For the above two DJ's, I'd recommend downloading their sets (probably not available on iTunes) rather then their individual tracks.

    I would consider the older Aphex Twin or Authechre (Amber) albums ambient.

    I like the modern classical composer Ernest Bloch (and others but can't remember offhand).

    I am too lazy to list my favorite music, but this should show you what I have been listening to - most in the last year or so - on my PC.

    I listen to way too many bands to list, but my current favorite band is Sixx:A.M. Listen to "Van Nuys" or "Life is Beautiful." I think they have some great lyrics and a cool sound.
    I'm mostly a hard rock/alternative junkie though, so check out my last.fm profile for that.
    I bet they'll put something in the air tonight, just to light your face.

    I like music from all sorts of different genres, (goth rock, darkwave, deathrock, EBM, future pop, dream pop, shoegaze, ethereal, industrial, electro, alternative, agrotech, powernoise, even some visual kei, metal and rock - though only a little)
    I have far too many "favourite" bands to list, but the one band that is, and always will be, on my favorites is the Cruxshadows.

    Very good taste (from "relatively old school" and down, as I do not know of the bands up top much).
