Discussion in 'Oceania Discussion Boards' started by Pris, Jun 5, 2002.
And eleborate ... I kinda wanted to start a music discussion thread type-thingy. So WHY do you like it? What specific bands do you like? Are there exceptions (ie: I like most Classical, but mostly soundtracks - some of the stuff played on ABC radio I simply can't stand. I prefer older, heavier music).
You missed two whole categories, country AND western.
ah, thank someone for the Blues Brothers.
I said *music* ...
Besides, there's a maximum of 10 options in a poll ...
but in particular, 80's rock/metal
Some of the "Alternative" music, such as Powderfinger, Rage Against the Machine, Moby, stuff like that, I really enjoy. However, I've voted for classical, mainly due to my love of the Star Wars soundtracks (I listen to them more then most when I get the chance) and most other movie soundtracks. In fact, there are two soundtracks that I've yet to find which has some great stuff, X-Men and the Matrix. That's the classical Matrix soundtrack (which is out in the US from what I know), not the collection of rock stuff (which I have). Both movies had some great scores, I just can't find the CD's anywhere to listen to them more. Anyone by any chance know where I could find them?
Personally, I do't consider soundtracks to be classical. To me, the term itself implies that it's been regarded as fine music for a very long time. I don't mind soundtracks but my idea of good classical music is more along the lines of Beethoven, Strauss etc.
Anyway, I didn't vote on the poll since there's more than one category that I'd pick.
Most of what I listen to is dance music That's most styles (trance, house, rap etc. Even the mainstream stuff). I don't really differentiate between the various styles since when I got in to club music (as a breakdancer about 20 years ago) it was all the one style. For about the past 15 years I've been playing all those styles as a DJ. As a professional for a while but more recently as a hobbyist.
As I mentioned above, I listen to the odd bit of classical too and I have a fair bit.
I don't mind other styles of music but there isn't anything else that I'd go out of my way to listen to.
you forgot RAP!!!!!! how couild you forget RAP, i mean come on. i know i have proberly started an argument here, but rap kicks a$$.
and that my two cents
She said *music*
Not hate mongering chanting...
I'm mainly listen to metal. All time favorite band is Fear Factory. Rammenstein, Metallica, Sepultura, White/Rob Zombie plus heaps more. I also tone it down a little when I'm in the car and listen to Rock (all forms) things like Creed, Kid Rock, Nickleback. If I'm at clubs Id prefer dance/techno or a live band. If I had a favorite perth band Id pick WAX without a doubt. Paramount goes off on Saturday's. Otherwise there not really alot I don't like. Can't stand slow songs either.
Wouldn't rap go under 'other'?
Anyway, I have a decent combination of alternative, Metal, 'normal' rock, classic rock and I dabble in classical.
You have to like rap. rap is the foundation of all music. Rap everybody, even the name sounds cool. anyway, ive said wat ive needed to say, and one more thing, SEE SPIDERMAN. great movie.
Hmm, I dunno what area the music I listen to fits into..
I like Alternative Rock and Classical. Rap is Crap in my books.
I have wide and varied tastes in music. I grew up predominately with classical and blues music( I loves the blues brothers).
I'm a fan of rock, classical,metal, some punk, blues, celtic, pipe, fiddle, and singing of course
I don't like pop usually but there is the occasional rare song that strikes me as really good
Meesa like gungan yodelling.
You would silly gungan person
Could be worse. He could have demonstrated.
His been ther, done that. Please don't let him again.
Man, I have way too many things to put in here...... but I suppose they kind of fall into three main catagories..
1) British 80's/Alternative (Depeche Mode, The Smiths, Adam and the Ants etc)
2) Industrial Techno/Trance (William Orbit, Chicane, Cesium 137)
3) Celtic/Tribal (Enya, Enigma, Deep Forest)
MMMMMMM.... gooood music!!
Enya has pretty voice
my fave bands are deftones, koRn, smashing pumpkins, tool, weezer and System of a Down(I went to Melbourne in Januarary to see em((twice)))
