I have always thought that you can tell a lot about a persons inner self  based on what kind of music they listen to.

What do you listen to? If there is a why then explain that to?

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

Cool topic my answer is fairly easy to explain,i listen to some of everything but my favorites date back to the 60's,70's,and some 80's.Why?Because musicians still had talent!I can throw in classical,and some from 30's,40's,and even 50's and give reasons why but lets see how this topic unfolds first lol

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

Predominantly 1970's music, and some random dated stuff.. Oh, and love Pink Floyd..

Why??? Dunno? I guess the 1970's was more alive for me. It was a groovy era.. and I'm still stuck there..

Edited: Come to think of it, it's because the lyrics were more up-beat.. feel good.. meaningfull.

Anything. I like my music to be somewhat mellow and a bit sad at times, like Snow Patrol for instance.

Oasis would be my favorite band.

When young, I loved to dance, probably because I was very small, I was not that good at sports.  Had to think too much so was lousy at it.  Dancing took no thought, so I tend to like music that I can ride, or allow it to get into my blood and carry me.  It is like flying I guess.

I have always like bass, so heavy metal is still something that I like to listen to from time to time.  It seems to relax my brain and allows some of my angry emotions to have expession.  I like club music because it is made for dancing.  So today at 64 I don't go out dancing, but when I listen to the music my soul does zoom up and away and circles back again LOL.

I like country western from time to time, it deals with life and the human struggle.  I like Christian music, world music, sitar in a special way.  However, I am a reader, so I don't buy much music, and only listen when in certain mood.

I like some high brow music but I am a low brow by nature LOL.

peace
mark

Are you going to tell us what our choices mean? :w00t:
I think it's a hard question. I could not put it into one catagory. My playlist looks like it is a combination of several very different people. Depends largely on my mood or activity. I have old country like Patsy Cline, Russian rock- Slot, contemperary christain like Flyleaf, other stuff like Seether, Evanescence, Adele, Celtic, bagpipes, Roberta Flack, Pink Floyd.
I'm open to lots of stuff, except rap and almost all the current crap. :su

I love Gorecki's Sorrowful Songs, Mozart's Clarinet Concerto (went to a symphony performance and half the audience wept), Keith Jarrett's Koln Concert, Kitaro's Silk Road, Prince's 1999, Thievery Corporation, Talking Heads Stop Making Sense, Adele, Iris Dement, John Prine, Steely Dan, Mark O'Connor's Appalachian Waltz, the old 60's group Love (Arthur Lee was genius), Enigma, Tori Amos. I stream KPLU at work, middle of the road jazz. This is my short list!

Ramsteinn, Metallica, Apocalyptica, classical music, guitar, piano, percussion, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Dead Can Dance, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Johnny Hollow, Nat King Cole, Fleetwood Mac (the old band from the 60/70's), Jethro Tull, Tom Waits, Alan Parson's Project, Disturbed, Nirvana, Neon Egypt, James Brown, Skunk Anansie, Talking Heads, Tvangeste, Buena Vista Social Club, Kimmo Pohjonen, Chopin (nocturnes), Claire Brown & The Banging Rackettes, and...and...and...

Why?

I love music.

And this one I listen to often, lol, and when I do, I jump around my room:



Oh, and Celtic-ish music, like "Paddy's Leather Breeches" by Angus Mohr:

I have a play-list that contains several thousand items (many compositions with several different performers) that plays at random pretty much everything from 1300 to some modern serious composers.  This includes all the schmaltz of the late nineteenth century, so it is not entirely highbrow.

My first introduction to classical music (growing up in a Vietnamese farming village) was Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet, and I couldn't believe something so wonderful actually existed.  Now of course it strikes me as an old war-horse.

Maybe an extension to what Seeker posted:

-1- Why do people love music a lot, and why do others not care much for it at all (yes, they do exist, lol)?
-2- Why do some people prefer to listen to only one kind music (jazz OR blues, OR classic OR folk OR rock OR love songs, and so on), and why do others love many kinds of music?
-3- Does the kind of music you listen to depend on the mood you are in, and/or is music able to change your mood?
-4- What other effects does music have on you? Does it help you to concentrate, to forget, to remember, to want do physical exercises, what?

I think music is a very interesting phenomenon because it is able to touch something deep down in us. It is able to resonate with (some deeper layer of) your psyche,

Only oders are able to touch an even deeper level.

+++

EDIT:

I'd like to add another point:

-5- Is the kind of music someone prefers related to someone's IQ?

I know this is non politically correct question, but let's be fair: people who prefer classical music above all other types of music are often considered to be intelligent.

I know from experience that that is not always true, btw. And I have had my thoughts about people prefering country-and western style music, but I have met very creative and smart people who loved it.
