OT- What Music you Listen to?

Interesting thread.

I listen to Rap, R&B, rock, metal, and a tad of bossa nova. I guess I'll list some of my favorite artists for each genre. =)

Rap- Nas, Missy Elliott, Murs, Three 6 Mafia, Kanye West

R&B- Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Musiq

Rock- Alice in Chains, Queens of the Stone Age, Katatonia, Electric Six, Gorillaz, Jerry Cantrell's solo stuff

Metal- Megadeth, Coroner, Secrets of the Moon, Reverend Bizarre, Opeth, Enslaved, Ragnarok

Bossa Nova: Eliane Elias, Astrud Gilberto

I primarily listen to rock and metal. Oh, and I cannot stand reggae and J-Pop. ICK



AW! There's got to be another Rammstein fan on here! ^__^

I have a very specific taste in music. I tend to like bands that have a specific sound. Rammstein has been my favorite band since 7th grade when I first heard "Du Hast" on my teachers computer.

Rammstein is a German industrial-ish, metal-ish , orchestral-ish* sounding group of men (That apparently hate each other) Before that, I was listening to Tatiana Ali and Spice girls! eewww! I'm embarrassed just typing that.

*Technically they are "Tanzmetal" German for "Dance-Metal"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDAppCS6d8M
This song is based on the poem "Rosenrot" or "Rose Red", (lol like my name!) form the story/poem "Snow white and Rose Red". The lyrics are beautiful, if you understand German, and the video is lovely. *spoiler* The girl basically tricks him into killing her family for her and then sells him out! ^__^ As I type that....I realize it might not be everyone's cup of tea.... They have other songs which are more melodic and pleasing to the ear of a non metal fan. And they have a lot of harder, heavier stuff. This video is one of their tamer ones. One of their most recent videos...is one no one should ever see. Don't watch it.


I also love old school Marilyn Manson (Everything before Golden Age of Grotesque)
Oomph! (another German band),
some Linkin Park, (They are about as much "rap" as I can handle.)
Apocalyptica (Instrumental rock and metal using classical European instruments)
some Mindless Self Indulgence
System of a Down
Billy Talent
Old School Korn (before they ran out of good things to whine about)
Static X

Yeah, I mostly like heavy, meaningful music. Oh, I belly dance as a hobby, and sometimes like to dance to old jazzy, turn of the century, sounding music.
I listen to everything except house music pretty much. This is what's in my top 25 on my iPod (don't laugh):

Take Cover (Acceptance)
Looks Just Like the Sun (Broken Social Scene)
Weak (SWV)
Foolish Love (Rufus Waingwright)
How Does It Feel (D'Angelo)
I Don't Care (Alana Davis)
I'm Still Your F*g (Broken Social Scene)--this is a good song, the title sounds horrible though!
Don't Let Go (En Vogue)
My Lovin' (En Vogue)
Precious (Esperanza Spalding)
Half of My Heart (John Mayer)
What It Feels LIke for a Girl (Madonna)
The Freshmen (The Verve Pipe
Metal Detektor (Spoon)
Place to Be (Nick Drake)
Orange Glow (Amel Larrieux)
Tears Dry On Their Own (Amy Winehouse)
Street Fighting Man (The Rolling Stones)
Tightrope (Janelle Monae)
Say Hey (Michael Franti & Spearhead)
It's All Gonna Break (Broken Social Scene)
Cannonball (Damie Rice)
Pink Moon (Nick Drake)
Past In Present (Feist)
We Built This City (Starship)

Just about everything....I can be at a heavy metal or industrial show one weekend and a hip-hop or reggae show the next.

This time of year I tend to get really nostalgic and listen to 90's alternative rock, mostly Smashing Pumpkins and Stone Temple Pilots. But right now A Perfect Circle has been on heavy rotation, as well as PJ Harvey, Lykke Li and Nouvelle Vague.

Most of my fave artists come from overseas, like Massive Attack, Portishead, Bjork, Wumpscut, Project Pitchfork, the Knife, Cocteau Twins, Miss Kittin, IAMX, Ladytron...

Loves: EMB, QB, Shea Moisture Style Milk, AO cons, Evoo, honey, jojoba oil, castor oil, shea butter, acv

It is slightly shocking to see some of my favorite music listed. Yay!

"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."

Someone just sent me this, and I am seriously going to listen to this album again. I listened to it when it first came out and thought it was good to exercise too...not anything really listening, but this video made me finally get the point. I'm a dork I guess, but I think it's so cool.

YouTube - Andrea Lewis - "54321" [Directed by Court Dunn]

And if you watched Degrassi TNG back in the day, yes, it's Hazel. LOL
