Re: Your kind of music

Most music I like has some psychedelic or hypnotic elements, loosely defined. Those can be found across a wide variety of music styles.

Re: Your kind of music

I listen to all kinds, except country. But my favorites that I gravitate towards are progressive rock and a ton of '80s music.

Love old school '80s:

Re: Your kind of music

Nice to see someone picking "regional music". By far the most broad of entries when you're aware it covers thousands of music genres in the world.

a few gates opening to hundred others:

African Music
Ancient Music
Arabic Music
Balkan Music
Brazilian Music
Caribbean Music
Caucasian Music
Chanson
Christian Liturgical Music
East Asian Music
Greek Music
Hispanic Music
Islamic Modal Music
Jewish Music
Philippine Music
Polynesian Music
Polyphonic Chant
Portuguese Music
Prehistoric Music
Romanian Music
Russian Music
Seychelles & Mascarene Islands Music
South Asian Music
Southeast Asian Music
Tibetan Traditional Music
Turkic-Mongolic Traditional Music
West Asian Music

And yes, people, there is such thing as Prehistoric Music. It's music played with instruments known to have been used in those times. Some people record that. And some people listen! Curiosity is a wonderful thing!

Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?

I noticed progressive rock had a lot of fans in the world. It's a deep niche that goes mostly back to the sixties and seventies (when it feels like millions of elaborated LPs were released). Lots of Italian stuff too from a similar niche, symphonic prog.

As for old school 80's, it's mostly synthpop, right? I like it too. Well, not everything, but the synth sound is interesting when used with taste. Gary Numan and David Sylvian being fine examples. I can enjoy the lighter stuff too, but they went far in the light stuff in the 80s

The band Yes, early Genesis, Supertramp, Rush, Styx, etc.

There's just so much from the '80s I like. Prince, Duran Duran, Van Halen, New Order, a-ha, Billy Squier, The Fixx, The Jets, Journey, Living Colour, The Smiths, early Sinead O'Connor, Big Country, Talk Talk, The The, on and on.

Like many 50 year olds, 90% of what I listen to is from the '70s and '80s.

Unlike me.

Curiously I didn't know Rush until very recently. It must have been an American thing. I listened to Moving Pictures on the net and it's indeed excellent!

Re: Your kind of music

I listen to all kind of music, except hippie, folkish crap, and any kind of "nerdy" music. Also I believe 90% of music made in 90s was shit, regardles of genre, it just doesn't sounds good to me.

Also love reading musicians biographies. Well, Im a hobbyst music historician

Although I believe in pretty every genre you might find a gems (there are some exceptions), the most "relatable" genre for me would be punk.

I have special affection for New York punk music from 70s (ignorant people think punk was born in UK- well, never heard New York Dolls, or Dead Boys, I guess.).

I watched parts of the Woodstock film/documentary two days ago (it was on TV - 50 years anniversary). Attendance of one million and a half, over three days, in the night, under the rain. Hendrix final performance remains unreal. Nobody ever sounded like him, and nobody ever will.

Didn't mean Hendrix as "hippie folkish crap", although Im not fan of him as well. Though many of Woodstock, and Woodstock-era acts were in this category.

It's pretty coherent to dislike hippies when you're into punk

I like punk too... especially when it sounds unique or original.

Re: Your kind of music

Nice thread

Here in Central Europe (Germany, Czechia, Austria) classical music will probably always be the pinnacle of all genres, as it's a part of our culture and DNA and a majority of the greatest composers have come from this region.

During summer and throughout the year, there's always so many classical music festivals here that it's impossible to follow them all. Needless to say, they're often set on beautiful locations like chateaux, Renaissance or Baroque palaces, gardens, courtyards, monasteries or picturesque towns, which adds to the overall experience.

NY punk music is very special yes. I grew in NYC in the late 70s and CBGBs was like heaven to me. Yeah, it was really a grimy, dirty hole in the wall, but I loved it then and I still love the memory of it.





(must admit I do like some hippyish folkish music too and there's loads of quite nerdish stuff I'm attracted to as well. )

Rush is a Canadian band numb nuts and has a massive global following. Neil Peart is generally regarded as one of the best drummers in the world, if not the best.

.

Dayana Yastremska, Félix Auger-Aliassime, Fedex, The Stanimal, Naomi Osaka, The Dog Dolgopolov, Petr Korda, The Borg, Ana Ivanovic
