I Picked Pop, just because I consider all other pop music sub genres "e.g. Pop-Rock J-Pop"

This may seem cliché, but this is only IF I had to pick a favorite! Really, I Love and appreciate all types of music! I love the oldies from 50's-80's! I find them fascinating, and you can really put you self in somebody shoes when you listen to that generations music, and you can really just imagine your self having a blast listening too that type music if you were living in that time! I think this is a good time to use the word 'hate' but I hate limitations! I Gauss that why I love The Beatles so much!

I like a lot of Alternative Rock, Electronica (trance and stuff), and Classical. But depending on my mood I can listen to any amount of hard rock or metal or anything else, for that matter.

I have a varied musical taste. Though I think I gravitate towards instrumental and soundtracks more. I can appreciate other styles, though I struggle with genre's like country. I am not sure why, but I find country to be unbearable. I think the second musical genre I focus on is trance/progressive. With J-pop and C-pop/folk following close behind.

Classic rock and most styles of Japanese music. From time to time I also love indulging myself in classical, jazz, blues, swing, funk and other forms of truly inspirational instrumental genres.

Edit: Didn't realize we were also posting genres we dislike. There are exceptions to this rule, but I hate anything that sounds repetitive and uninspired. I can respect some forms of rap but most of it sounds noisy and the lyrics sound distasteful. I also dislike country because most of it is the same thing. Hip-hop is just generally painful to my ears, along with heavy metal and screamo. Punk music for some reason makes me feel uneasy and anything with auto-tune is an absolute nightmare. That haunting sound of a human's voice taken over by a machine is simply unbearable.


An example of an exception to the rule- Eagles definitely have strong elements of country in their music, but it's just so inspired that I love it. "Take it Easy" is a great example.

I really agree with you on country. I can't stand its style or content at all, ever.

I appreciate Country! More so old style Country (From 1940-1970) (e.g Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly) Country is basically one of the roots of rock & roll. I'm not soo fond of Modern day Country. My friend, and his family are straight up country. I remember going too his house, and all they would play is Modern Country music! Man some of those lyrics are depressing

I can respect that there were some heavily country-inspired songs from those two artists, but I'd place those two artists under the swing/rock genres.
It's actually interesting what people consider country, which is quite a wider range than everyone thinks.


I've had people think this famous Dire Straits song was country, but it's actually closer to rock.

I agree, but again both contributed in creating Rockabilly, which is a mix of Country, Rhythm, Blues, ect. They took major influence from Country music stars, like Hank Williams which is why they sound so country.

A great example would be these two albums





-----


Also that is Such a Good song! It does sounds like country, but it does lean closer to Rock.

------------

Paul McCartney - Heart of the Country
This song sounds Country, but is classified as Rock, and alot of the Songs in this album 'Ram' Sounds Country, but is classified as Rock.

I remember those two albums, and the McCartney song as well. Rockabilly was a really cool genre as well.

Hmm, I suppose I can say I am a fragment similar, but then I don't actively seek anything. Since at Xmas my foster family used to play Xmas music by country music stars from the time periods you mentioned. Regardless, I can't find myself exploring the genre though I am always willing to learn of something if it matters enough. On my own though I can't seem to have a desire to seek or learn about it.

I'm more of a classical fan, mostly baroque. Can't live without my Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, Pachelbel, Beethoven, and many others... Whenever people see my ipod they always look confused. Also, I do love when classical is remixed into something like techno or trance. I won't lie either, I pretty much listen to anything from Jpop to ambiance to Alternative rock, and a lot of game/anime OSTs.

I think I might've posted here before but I think it's safe to say that my tastes probably changed a lot since then. My favourite genres would be J-pop (NOT that idol stuff >.<), J-rock, Heavy Metal and more specifically, Power Metal. I like melodic metal music a lot, which I discovered through bands like Iron Maiden and Kamelot I'd say my tastes are pretty odd for a Korean/Canadian teenager (for whom it's mostly K-pop and more K-pop)

My tastes are roughly similar to Haladflire's.

I mainly prefer rock and metal, most often symphonic,industrial,electronica,gothic, neo shock and punk. (Nightwish,Marilyn Manson, Xandria, Dope, Emilie Autumn,Rob Zombie, Powerman 5000,Nox Arcana etc...)Anything with an electroinic beat or a dark ominous tone will catch my attention
As far as Japanese music goes, I often listen to scandal, sNoW and Miwa, in addition to some of the Vocaloid creations (namely Gakupo, Luka and GUMI).

I'm a Classical fan, but J-Pop is right below it.
