Hi Every one,

One thing in life I have always gained a lot of pleasure from is listening to music. Any evening I have the house to myself love to kick back and put on some of my favourite tunes. Seeing we are from all over the World it would be interesting to see what artists, bands and music types get you moving, Notice I ain,t said what I listen to yet. so you tell me your guilty pleasures and I will tell you mine

since you are being so coy about your music tastes , I will start the ball rolling even though I am on the same island as you , I love everything from the Beatles , the Clancy Brothers etc to modern music like Of Monsters and Men , to be honest I will listen to nearly every kind of music apart from our own version of country music (are you a Daniel fan ? ) .

On the crohns forum they have a thread which link videos to music that we like , I dont know if we can do this here as it might eat up bandwidth , any thoughts Eric ?

When I was a teen and into my early 20's I would listen to mostly 70's rock, alternative rock, heavy metal - bands like Rush, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Nirvana, Slayer, etc.

Lately, I just listen to whatever works - usually anything in the Top 40's (pop, hip-hop, dance). 

With that said, I just got a 90 day free trial to Google Play Music, so I'll be able to stream anything I want until 2018 =)

You can certainly link the videos, but I'd have to get a forum add-on to show it as an embedded video.

I have play music for the last few years , I love it , when I was young if you wanted to buy an album it took some serious thinking as they were really expensive and the album would be played over and over and then swapped with friends for other albums , when the cassette tape came out it was a revolution , you could copy your friends music and enhance your collection , 

now  with play music im like a kid in a candy shop , only with music instead of sweets , I have instant access to tens of thousands of albums new and old and it only costs 10 dollars(euro)a month .

 

just something to start with

To start with I have to agree with Tony on the Irish country music, As person Daniel O Donnell is a true gentleman and has never forgotten his roots. but other than water boarding having to listen to his music I can,t think of a worst torture!! In my teens I was a big Jam fan and liked the later stuff from Paul Weller as well.  Like you Eric Dance and hip hop and have been known to murder the odd power ballad at karaoke went on a night out. One sign that its time to take me home is when I start on the Kenny Rodgers!!!!!!

I miss that. I still like to buy music, but it's really not the same as unwrapping a cassette or CD, and you certainly don't cherish digital copies the same way that you would physical copies.

That is some thing the younger generation is missing out on, At high school we would head to the record store and spent lunch time tossing through LPs. Sitting in the locker room trying out my mates new Sony Walkman. Have a friend who has a loft converted to a music room and its all vinyl and I mean the sound quality is unreal.

I favor the older country Johnny Cash , Willie , Waylon older David Allen Coe , Loretta Lynn , Tammy Wynette that era but not the older twangy stuff  . In younger days used to listen to Led Zeppelin , Creedence  Clearwater Eric Clapton etc.  . I like the oldies and still listen to country although I don't care for the style its changing to . I can listen to just about anything except the head banging stuff . Oh ya Beatles , Rolling stones , Mamas and Papas There is a lot of good older music .

Hi Dona, when I see the list of artists you and Robert are naming it really makes a body realise that music now a days is like most things disposable. Over here its shows like the X Factor or Britains got Talent. A star for 24 hours until the next one arrives, yep we still have some great performers but its this prefab music that's being made. Hey listen to me the old guy in the corner giving off lol.. These young ones now a days! Help I think I am turning into my Dad

Hi John,

Well I think my preferences sort of date me ( 69 years old) but the music is ageless.

Also  Aretha Franklin... now there is a singer!

We also enjoy classic reggae and african pop music ( before hip hop got it! ... that really dates me. No disrespect to those of you who love hiphop).

A few years ago I when on a weekend break with the Lads, one of the guys got to hear about a Jazz club not far from our hotel. he loves that sort of music and so not to disappoint we all said we would go. it was a small bar where the house band played and various folk could turn up with their instruments and join in. That was one brilliant night I never will forget and was So wrong thinking it was going to be boring

My father travelled the big band circuit in the 30's. He was a drummer. So at home i was raised on big band music (the Dorseys, Glenn Miller etc...)  As a child of the 60's i was into protest folk music (Peter, Paul and Mary, Mama's and People's, Country Joe and the Fish etc.)  Also the Doors, Beatles, Paul Revere and the Raiders.  Now I have fallen into the same sea of Country Western as Robert.  One of my favorites is Kris Kristofferson.
