What are your favorite music genres?

Posted 15 January 2012 - 05:44 PM

Just curious to see if there are any trends in the type of music you guys listen to.

I myself listen to just about every genre of music. The ones I tend to avoid are heavy metal, punk/emo stuff, and most country. I don't mind some of the old Johnny Cash type country but that's about it. If I had to rank my top 3 genres they'd probably be
1.Acoustic rock/easy listening like Dave Matthews
2.General electronic stuff, bands like Pretty Lights, Mux Mool, Ratatat
3.Classic Rock, <3 my Zeppelin

So what about you?

Edit: "...you favorite music genres" -_-

Dance - Faithless (yes!)
Electronic - way too many to list…
DubStep(a bit) - Nero
Metal - Rammstein

I like pretty much everything, except for some country and most screamo.

But my favorites are usually in the Electronic genres. Stuff like House, Techno, Dubstep, Glitch Hop (great for programming!), and most recently: Electro-Swing.

I'm not sure why, but when I'm listen to stuff like techno, trance, glitch hop, and other really repetitive genres, programming becomes fairly easy and natural to me.

Light rock, folk rock, folk influenced rock; I really like the prominent use of piano too.

favorite current songs:
1) Amos lee - flower
2) Dawes - little bit of everything
tied for 3) Motopony - king of diamonds
tied for 3) Adele - someone like you


Someone once said I listen to the successors of James Taylor; which is funny becuase 1) my dads favorite artist is James Taylor and 2) I occasionally listen to James Taylor.

Depending on my mood, I might go for trance, electro, dubstep, heavy metal, death metal, thrash metal, melodic/power metal...

Anything that isn't some whiney she-male moaning at a microphone and crying about how his girlfriend left him.

EDIT: For programming, I don't listen to any music so I don't break my concentration, unless it's VERY gentle music without any vocals. For some reason, words distract me :<

Or how their daddy left them. (Good Charlotte, I'm looking at you)
