Dusting. something calming (like Era)
Cleaning bathroom/kitchen. something "get up and go" (like Stevie Ray Vaughn - Love Struck Baby)
Hoovering. (AC/DC or Motorhead)
@Geek thats brilliant!
@Lighthouse have you never used fruity loops before - it's a sampler! you can make some pretty cool techno things on there, but yes, I guess they are pretty similar!
@Jack yes metal rocks :D
and for me:
Exercise: drum n bass
Tired/late night: Angels and airwaves, eagles etc (quiet stuff)
Most of the time: metal or heavy rock eg. Bullet for my Valentine, Lost Prophets, Still Remains, Metallica etc etc :)
Metal, Rock , Blues , Jazz ... I have a pretty open mind as long as it isn't Pop, Techno, Most RAP, POP Country sux too - old school western is still great though like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Willie ... bluegrass ...
I thought that was a thread about music. Have not seen much about music yet - just about noise. In any case: I like Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Tschaikowsky, Dvorak, Beethoven and all baroque music - especially organ music.
I take it you guys are into your classical as well!
Well I only really listen to classical when I play it myself on the piano or in an orchestra!
Anybody here like jazz? I play sax & piano so I can chop and change within jazz - is great fun to play!
Anybody else play a musical instrument?
@Jack (and anybody else who is interested)
here is the kind of stuff I listen to!
Then do I have a deal for you! Only $4.99 for this 13 disc set: Sounds of the Jet Engine, with special performance by lawnmower man. :-P
I can't listen to that death metal either... I do listen to some gothic music, but that's about as far as I'll go.
Isn't anybody here in their late 40's - a fan of 70's and 80's music?

And here's a good music website I'll bet many have never heard of - Imeem.com. Users upload songs and create and share playlists. So when you look up a song you like, then check out the "related songs" and that users' playlist. There's a good chance that if someone has two or three songs you really like, they might just have a song you like but have never heard. I've added a few new songs to my all time favorite list this way.
WARNING - Immem.com can suck away time like nothing else on the internet.
* The Clash - you heavy and speed metal lovers owe your genre to these guys, check them out.
"Swallow a music dictionary" - LOL. No, I just took a pencil and paper over to my pile of CD's, then I went upstairs and looked through my records. I'll bet there are people on this forum who have never played a record.
I'll go check out I.Q. and Pendragon.
@AppleTom. with IQ. start out with "Tales from the Lush Attic"
and with Pendragon. If you come across the original recording of "The Black Knight" done by the BBC for the "Friday Rock Show" please let me know.
Edit. And if you find the 3rd recorded version. Brilliant
Regardin jacks video again (job for a cowboy) the music is excellent, but it does kinda annoy me that he screams ALL the way through, not just parts of it (like Bullet do) which i prefer
some actual singing along with the screaming is good
How annoying is that?. I did a quick run through of those stations. Know it, know, it, know it, no, know it, no, OH that's interesting, get the name, google it, sites in a tab. Firefox crashes (what was the name of that band? Social something I think. Any ideas please?)
@Bartman. for really good folk/blues/rock check out Fairport Convention & (early) Fleetwood Mac
Camel, music inspired from the film "The Snow Goose"
& Tangerine Dreams "Firestarter"
Wow, you're bringing back some memories. I used to have a pretty extensive
vinyl collection, mostly replaced with CD's, but some lost in the shuffle
somehow ex., borrowed and never returned, Camel being one of them. Guess
I need to seek them out. Old recordings like that are tricky to find aren't they?
Oh ok. Let me go a little off off topic if I may.
In WMP when I try to play some radio stations from my stations
list, I get IE cannot display error. But if I go to the genre
list it works fine. Any idea why?
