    What are some of your favorite bands?

    I'm in love with music, so deciding things like this are hard for me.
    I do have to say that I love all old rock music, though. :p

    A small list:
    The Beatles [of course :sexywink:]
    Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
    Death Cab for Cutie
    The Killers
    Blind Melon
    Goo Goo Dolls
    The Byrds
    Oasis
    The Who
    Switchfoot


    :mrgreen: ...and everyone else?

    Hmm, I do mainly listen to music in the radio ... saves me all the hassle of collecting CDs or downloading ;) (yes, you got it right, I do not have a single mp3 on my computer and I do not have an mp3 player ... i just don't need it).

    however, if forced to name bands or directions .. it would be things like

    Beatles,
    Stones,
    Queen,
    Gary Moore,
    most kind of Britpop,
    and some of the good old 80ies ;),
    and classic like Gustav Mahler,
    piano music in General

    :stun:
    .....And you're talking to the person who has 438 CD's and is striving to get more for her collection. Haha. But wow, that's surprising. To me.

    You got that right. How I miss the 70's & 80's.... not that I ever knew them, but you get my drift.
    And piano music is beautiful, I can't believe I forgot to list that.

    ;) .. well, just counted mine ... 31 CDs ... mainly because some things are not non the radio often, or since it is convenient in the car sometimes.

    Also one reason I don not collect many things is that I would hate it if my places style was spoilt by many collectibles crowding the shelves. I guess this also holds for CDs ;)

    The 80ies were a very creative period, lots of today's music copies so much of it and many people do not realise :confused:

    OK, as just one example for many of the kind:

    The Complete Choral Works, by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy.

    My newest acquisition is
    Georg Friedrich Händel, Theodora, An Oratorio in Three Movements
    performed by (among others) Kantorei der St Lucas-Church in Scheeßel.

    ;)

    I live for music. It is … oxygen. If I want to change my mood, I put on music. It changes my cells on a biological level. I listen to it always. Right now I’m watching the 10 part Jazz series dvds by Ken Burns. I grew up on rock ‘n roll, with Elvis - Chuck Berry - Roy Orbison, then in high school it was The Who - Cream - Jethro Tull. Later I became interested in the blues and concentrated on that for 10 years or so. For the last several years it’s been mostly jazz, but I love all good music. Music drives me crazy and keeps me sane, too. Without it, I’d surely go ‘round the bend for good. When I look at images, for instance in an art gallery or photo gallery or here on the forum, I hear different music based on the images. When I hear the screetch of the subway arriving, while waiting on the platform, it sounds like music. Music is like water; it fills in all the empty spaces around daily life, makes it bearable.

    Here’s what’s on the turntable/cd player/ipod lately: John Coltrane – Charlie Parker – Wayne Shorter - Billie Holliday - Jackie MacLean – Sonny Rollins – McCoy Tyner – Lee Morgan – Dexter Gordon – Mark Murphy – Ray Baretto – Charles Mingus - Dinah Washington – Abbey Lincoln - Madeleine Peyroux – Rory Block – Paul Geremiah.

    (I'm sorry to say that I may be just a tad ... out of touch. I just scanned lostprophet's list, and have only ever heard of one name, Goo Goo Dolls, but I thought it was a candy bar. :er: Oh well. )

    So what, I have all the Mahler Symphonies here ;) and some other nice thingies ;)

    just because we enjoy the sound people beating up trashbins doesn't mean we do not like more classical music as well.
