When I'm not programing: rock, instrumental (classical, romantic, modern, post modern, even sound tracks), heavy metal, some rap (just the good stuff), even new country (the stuff without the twanny sound in it)
I discovered that I have very little tolerance for pop music (I think). You know most of the stuff "kids listen to these days" (am I really that old? I haven't even had kids yet!)... which I think tends to fall into "pop/pop-rap". It's too formulated, overly produced, uninspiring, emotionless music and it is running ramped over the radio waves. I tried watching the American Music awards and watched as a performer from some silly pop band threw his guitar up for stage person to catch...they timed the action to occur when the "climax" of the song was reached (if you can call it that: there aren't any climaxes in formulated music). The thing is that the "throwing" of the guitar was overly-thought-out and completely unnatural because the song and the singer lacked the emotion that would have matched the throwing action.
I'm happy that there are bands out there that still perform with raw emotion and passion...
These silly pop-stars lack so much.
(Just went to a TOOL concert the night before last and it was AWESOME!)
