When I am cleaning house I like to listen to 50's and 60's Rock and Roll. When I am down I like Easy Jazz. When I am reading a smoochy romance novel then of course I have to listen to romantic crooners (Humperdink[spelling??], Nat King Cole, Pat Boone (!), Tom Jones, etc. ) I love old fashioned Country, Foot Stomping Blue Grass, Original Long Haired Classical - Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Tchaikovsky *sigh*, Vivaldi *mmm yes*, and Blues. I listen to those when I am working in the garden and when I am on the computer.
When I can't sleep, I put on my religious music. It soothes me, and I sleep deeper and am more refreshed.
AGene you are so eclectic! Wow!
I listen to a lot of different music. Lately at work, it's been a station locally that does a "mix" of different types of music. It's much more difficult for me to play music at home now, because the house is filled with TV's!! eeeeek! I don't have a really private, quiet place that I can call my own anymore. That's kind of hard. But I do like rock 'n roll when doing housework, hymns and religious songs when I'm studying.
sort of, but, hey tena! I say Van Halen with the "Monsters of Rock" tour (back in the early 90s? late 80's?) -- very cool :)
On the weekends, whenever I am in my truck, I listen to LDS Children's Primary Songs (Primary is Sunday School for 3 -12 year olds). My grandson loves them and we sing along to the music together. It is so much fun to be able to do this with him that I don't even mind listening to the same 10 songs over and over. :)
I basically listen to what I like. I love classic Rock, and there are a few radio stations that play a lot of it around the Detroit area (I can't imagine why :) )
I am listening to Led Zeppelin right now. I have taught my sons to enjoy the same type of thing. We all listen to a lot of Zeppelin, Lynard Skynard, Bob Seger, Styx, Boston, Kansas, ....
At the same time, I love to listen to classical and jazz. Bach's Brandenberg Concertos and Toccatta and Fuge in D minor, Mussorsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik....
Jazz is very good, but I get tired of modern jazz, real fast. It all sounds the same. Now some good old blues, dixieland, or speakeasy music is really worth listening to.
I avoid heavy metal, as most of it is depressing to me (other than Zeppelin).
I dont really listen to music that much, other than what is on the radio, and most of the times I am listening to talk radio instead. I did however purchase the Evanescence CD because of their last 2 songs I heard, and have been listening to their CD regularly. As a teenager I was a heavy metal and hard rock freak, mostly because of teenage anger issues :furious3: But I have since mellowed out, thank goodness. ;)
