Music Tastes

[align=center]So I figured we could share some music tastes…yeah. Everyone here seems to have a different idea of what they think good music is (an observation based off of the “rate the song above you” thread) and I thought it would be cool to just list our favorite bands and songs and whatever. Don’t worry about a Top Ten list or anything, just write what you feel you want to write about the music you love. I, however, love lists. So that’s what I’m going to stick with. :slight_smile:

I also like Ludovico Eudinadi, who is an Italian composer and does a lot of piano work that I love. I <3 classical/orchestrated music. And of course I love video game music.

I play bass guitar, sing, am in a band, and I mostly l like to play punk/rock/alternative/synth kind of stuff. I can also play some stuff on the piano and know a lot about music theory. Aaand yeah, I guess that’s a decent enough type of first post…[/align]

I listen to hip hop all day errday that’s all you need to know. Dont feel like making a list.

Umm this is why Last.fm was created…so…

… also it’s Faunts not The Faunts… and WTF how can you not love their entire discography!!! :neutral_face: :neutral_face: :neutral_face: :neutral_face:

Granted I know alot of people swoon over M4 Part 2 b/c it’s Mass Effect’s ending theme song and the rest of their songs stray from that style but they are all so special in their own way.

smacks with High Expectations/Low Results LP

Top bands are

Boards of Canada
If These Trees could Talk
Faunts

Lately I’ve been enjoying alot of instrumental only rock from pg.lost and Long Distance Calling.

Fav album would be You can play these songs with chords-Death Cab for Cuite. B/c it helps me deal with rampant depression and I love how that whole album is Ben…everything from the guitar, Bass, drums, vocals it’s all him. It’s one man’s vision and I love that.

It’s only because I sorta kinda think your alright. :wink:

I don’t like picking favorite bands because I pay more attention to the song rather than who is playing it.

Genres that I listen to a lot include Rock, Alternative, Metal, Rap, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Electronic, Trance, Techno, Acoustic, and whenever I’m in the mood, some Japanese and Spanish music as well as remixes of stuff like videogames and tv shows.

Waitaminute Tab… did I introduce you to Maritime?

Perhaps…

Don’t flatter yourself though, with my friends it was really only a matter of time.

:wink:

Where do they come up with these original names?

I don’t listen to bands because they have cool names, I listen to bands because they make good music.

As if you really think that was what I was implying…

:cool;

I wonder if VHS will be next. Eh? Eh? :thinking:
