What are you favourite styles of music?

Postby Snape2255 on Wed Jan 11, 2012 7:34 pm

Just a general question, name you favourite styles of music overall and give some examples of some of your favourites from each - or your favourites overall. I'll get started!

1. Electro
2. House
3. Trance
4. Techno
5. Indie Rock
6. Rock

A bit contrasting, but they're my favourite types of music - my tastes sometimes change but it generally stays within them 6 categories, just with a bit of switching around - currently it's all about the Electro! Some really good ones being:

Dj Solovey and Dj Sklepa - Satisfaction 2008 (electro power remix)
Relanium - Leel Lost
Eminem-Superman (DJ Rick Costa Electro remix)

Just give everyone an idea of what your favourite categories of music are, and just a couple of examples as to what you're in to.

A warning: If you have headphones in....unless you can handle it, turn the volume down before you listen to any of them 3 tracks mentioned if you do.

Thanks, and lets get started! :D

Going through my iTunes and it seems to be

1 Rock
2 Pop
3 Alternative (this seems to cover punk, ska, and indie :? , well according to iTunes it does)
4 Folk
5 Jazz
6 Chill out Electronica
7 Reggae

Theres also a fair bit of metal in there but Ive become alot more chilled out in my music taste since uni, and my main listened to artists of the past couple of months are Jack Johnson, The Beatles, Madness, Spandau Ballet, The Police, and Red Hot Chili Peppers

1 (british) Punk (Sex pistols, Partisans, - even though that can be called Oi! aswel, The adicts, )
2 Experimental Rock (John frusciante, P)
3 Funk (Funkadelic, Parliament)
4 Funkrock (Red hot chili peppers, Urban dance squad)
5 UK Garage (Audiobullys)
6 Ska (Madness)
7 Trip-Hop (Tricky)
8 Dance Rock (Qemists, Prodigy, Pendulum)
9 Alternative Rock (Guano Apes)
10 Drum and base (Again Qemists and pendulum but from diffirent albums + Bad Company UK, Dieselboy)

(this seems to cover punk, ska, and indie :? , well according to iTunes it does)

That means itunes realy doesnt care about a category. Even in punk you got 2 main styles which are american and british (for example ramones vs sex pistols). And in rock you still got alot of styles hence my list has 4 of them in a row. Notice though that even though it mentions a country it doesnt allways mean the origin is from that country. Its just the general style.

And even the numbering on that list is mood dependant.

For this reason having such list often is a bit pointless. I could easily add 10 more styles to that list. And thats also why i mentioned example artists. just to ensure you know the style i mean. And if you havent noticed, my fav 2 artists arent on the #1 category (red hot chili peppers being #1 and john frusciante being #2).
Now on the workshop!

1) Alternative
2) Rock
3) Trance (very selective about this though)
4) Electronic

And anything else that tickles my fancy at the time that doesn't fall into that category, but most of the stuff does!

Metal fanatic here, including many metal sub-genres, my favourites being power, traditional, epic, doom, thrash, speed, prog and some death and black. I have nothing against other types of music, but metal covers everything I want from music :)

1) Electro (Ambient -> dubstep)
2) Hip-hop

I could probably mention subgenre's and the likes too but I can't be arsed with it. I see good in all kind of music and have gone from Daft Punk to John Frusciante to Children of Bodom etc. I love all kind of music generally but I prefer electro music like Daft Punk, Madeon, Justice, Ratatata but also ambient tracks like Secede - Leraine, which is my favorite all time song.

I guess I see now why there's basically no hip-hop on the in game radio. It's a shame, I think most genre's should be represented and a half more serious effort on weekdays to get a decent playlist and keep the "fun" tracks on weekends when people might be a bti drunk could be more suiting.

I've given this a fair amount of thought and the only thing I can say is nothing.

My musical taste seems, according ot my iTunes, to be so freaking varied it would take all day to write down the genres that currently reside within my folders.

1. Post-Hardcore - Alesana, Burden Of A Day, blessthefall, A Skylit Drive, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Greeley Estates.
Prefer the new "wave" of posthc, though I love classic ones like At the Drive In, From Autumn To Ashes, From First To Last, Thursday etc aswell.

3. Emo/pop-punk - A Thorn For Every Heart, Hidden In Plain View, Mae, Park, Jimmy Eat World, Hawthorne Heights, Dashboard Confessional, AFI.
I know, some bands here people rather stick under post-hc or something else and it can be debated forever. However, I put them where I think they fit best.

2. Screamo - Ampere, Daitro, Envy, Funeral Diner, Pg 99, Sed Non Satiata, Suis La Lune, Neil Perry.
Real screamo, not that shit everyone tags screamo on lastfm. French screamo > all.

4. Metal - As I Lay Dying, Heaven Shall Burn, Amorphis, Job For A Cowboy, Suicide Silence, Chelsea Grin, Before The Dawn, Deadlock, In This Moment, In Vain, Lamb Of God.
I listen to pretty much all kinds of metal. Though I have a few favorites. Metalcore, Deathcore, Melodeath, Death, Progressive.

5. Acoustic/Singer-Songwriter - Automatic Loveletter, Angus and Julia Stone, Jack Johnson, Meg and Dia, Scott Leger, Sufjan Stevens.
Love acoustic, especially with female singers :roll:

6. Melodic/Uplifgting Trance - Cosmic Gate, Rank 1, Ferry Corsten, Blank And Jones, Chicane, Delerium, Flutlicht, Gouryella, Kai Tracid, Push.
Before I went into metal,posthc and everything I used to only listen to EDM music. Best years trance ever had is 1998-2002. Now it's mostly just mainstream shit, same goes with hardstyle.

Awh, memories. Music <3

Edit: Forgot Alternative/rock and stuff like that. Cold, 30 Seconds To Mars, Chevelle, Seether, Staind to name a few.
