Music - Whats your flavor?

Recommended Posts

My favorites are: Evanesence, Lacuna Coil, H.I.M., My Chemical Romance, Nox Arcana, Seether, Disturbed, Linkin Park, No Doubt, Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson, Green Day, U2, Duran Duran...I Listen to a variety of music but I am getting towhere I cannot stand country...it all sounds the same anymore and the funny thing about that is that we go to a 'country' bar every Friday night(the drinks are cheap!)...If they play the older stuff from the early 90's like Garth Brooks, Brooks and Dunn...etc...I am fine but anything else drives me nuts. So no, I don't 2-step and the thought makes me gag. But when the DJ throws out the dance music you bet your ass I am out there shaking my soon-to-be small ass! :) I like alot of dark, vampiric music too...call me weird but there is something so calming, soothing and romantic about the music. :)www.noxarcana.com If I listen to this music with my eyes closed it is so hypnotic and makes you picture yourself in a castle with a long flowing gown, candlelight and a cool breeze blowing through your hair. It makes my heart race to picture it. I think I should have been alive back then!! :) And I love the fact that my husband feels the same way. Light the candles, turn on the cd, turn off the lights and let the romance flow. :kiss2:

MyKydsDad...:wow2: Never been to a concert...hmmm, ya gotta' try it just once!


My husband and I also have another circuit "activity" we do...every year we go the the National's Drag Races to see John Force run his funny car. The sound and vibration of the cars drag racing pretty much knocks your socks off!!! Do ya' think we're possibly going to be deaf by 60? I would say probably yah! But boy do we have fun!!! :)

I dance country and like alot of country, however, I don't buy it much.. I also own a little Bocelli and some Mario Frangoulis.

Any music as long as there is a meaning and a melody... no banging, no absurd screaming violent tantrums or obscenities.. YUK.

I'm a country girl for the most part. I enjoy the classic country music and some of the new. Trace Adkins makes me weak in the knees! :dance: I also enjoy some of the older rock stuff that I grew up on like the Eagles, Heart, & Van Halen. Isn't it funny how you can go back in time just listening to music? Shows what a huge influence it has on our lives even though we don't realize it at the time.

70's/80's rock - 40% of the time

Fleetwood Mac

Steve Miller



The Guess Who


The Eagles

Pink Floyd





Van Halen

oldies - 40% of the time

this is my mom's music - but I know all of the songs and all of the words and find myself listening to it more and more the older I get - calms me down and great for cleaning.

some of the stuff my kids listen to (but definitely not all) - 20% of the time

I couldn't even tell you the band names - used to be Creed, Default, 3 Doors Down, American Rejects, Green Day, etc. but has now moved to harder stuff that I can hardly stand to listen to - bunch of yelling and sounding really mad about something. I don't get it.

My husband has been singing in bands since I met him. His current band (with my brother and two other friends) plays around the DFW area on occasion. I like most of the stuff they do - Cheap Trick (Surrender), Tesla (Signs - remake), Sammy Hagar (love this one - Heavy Metal), U2 (Vertigo), etc., etc. It's lots of fun to go see them play - I'm still a groupie after all these years :-).

I like anything rock, new, old, the harder the better. Mettallica, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Led Zep, Audioslave, the list goes on & on...

Hey Randy! Where in the hell is coal in central Texas? Fairfield has coal???? And its about time you went to at least a concert or 2. My first concert was Paul Revere & the Raiders so you know I've been around a bit. Married a guitar player so I have to like music. Plenty of concerts to go to even if you don't like it as hard rock as I do. Come on Randy, take Joy out every now & then!!

Yessir. I did know that. Silly man, he is.

He also moved down here because he hunts here alot.

The reason I have seen him so many times is because he would throw concerts on the ranches of friends who he was down hunting with in west Texas - specifically, Lytle Ranch near Abilene.

He also bought a memorial stone at the White Buffalo sculpture in Snyder, Texas, which is my hometown.

I just think he is a very talented, down to earth, neat guy.

My daughter's first concert was the Damn Yankees when she was 10 and we got to go backstage with him, Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades. I thought my daughter would melt when Jack Blades came over and talked to her. Great memories! :)

Leatha, did you know that he lives over in Crawford now? I think he's trying to get closer to George Dubya....LOL

It has to have layers of sound for me. That seems to always catch me. Many layers within the music.

SO I pretty much run Soup to nuts if it has that. My tastes are very

eclectic. It ranges from from New Age, Darkwave and Industrial,Ambient, Goth, classic rock, classical, blues.

Except for country and 80's metal bands, I never really got into that. Like Dawg I like Prodigy and Delirium too. and then a host of independent bands usually from Europe.

All time forever favs are Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Gary Numan, U2, Duran Duran, Loreena Mckinnett, Vilvaldi, Debussy, Albinioni.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
