With the recent topic concerning Contemporary Christian Music, I thought it would be fun to discuss what each of us enjoy listening to.

Of course, I love Orthodox sacred music and am attempting to build a collection, but I'll discuss that in another topic. As a former orchestral trombonist I very much enjoy all forms of classical music from concerti to operas and everything in between. Here are a few pieces that I am very fond of:

Barber - Adagio for Strings (reminds me of a sort of instrumental Cherubic Hymn, I cannot listen to this without thinking of the suffering of Christ being replaced by the empty tomb.)
Beethoven - Symphony #9(freude!), Egmont Overture(complex)
Debussy - Clair de Lune (to me this is a piece that evokes children dreaming of the wide world before them, as innocent as they are at a tender young age)
Dvorak - Symphony #9 (I love the entire thing, very much for me the "Song of America")
Guilmant - Morceau Symphonique (My favorite trombone piece, sorrowful and happy and full of soul)
Holsinger - On a Hymsong of Phillip Bliss (a beautiful beautiful concert band piece composed of snippets of evangelical hymns. Wonderful)
Holst - Jupiter (utterly majestic)
Lizst - Hungarian Rhapsody #2
Mahler - Symphony #1 (3rd movement in particular, a wonderful elegy constructed from the children's song Frere Jacques)
Messiaen - Quartet for the End of Time
Mozart - Symphony #25, Requiem, The Abduction from the Seraglio
Reed - A Festival Prelude (Excellent concert band piece)
Rimsky-Korsakov - Russian Easter Overture, Capprichio Espagnol, Trombone Concerto
Satie - Trois Gymnopedies (very pastoral piano/chamber orchestra piece. incredibly soothing)
Shastakovich - Waltz #2 from Jazz Suite
Smetana - The Moldau (I can almost see the people who live along the Moldau when I hear this)
Vaughn Williams - English Folk Song Suite (makes me smile)

Taking a break now, will post other favorites later tonight.

1) Celtic music, especially bagpipe music

2) great popular singers like Elton John, Michael Burghess (a Canadian), Whitney
Houston. Some oldies, too

3) I like very much but rarely listen to opera and other Classical etc music. I
particularly like Mozart, Verdi and Rossini.

1. folk music, particularly from the more celtic influenced south.
2. Classical
3. Starting to have an affinity for bluegrass and old time country
4. I also listen to more modern country, but primarily only when I am driving somewhere for something.

1. Chant (including Byzantine) and classical (especially church music). David, I noticed you listed Holst's Jupiter; have you ever heard his A Short Te Deum? Opera also, if I'm watching it. (Just listening is a lot like just reading Shakespeare.)

2. Traditional folk forms, including psalmody and hymnody, Celtic and Gaelic, bluegrass (instrumental)

3. Jazz (sometimes) and some '70's pop (mostly artists such as James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkel, and so on).

I listen to many types of music. I love Broadway show tunes (I got that from my mom), country, classic rock, classical, jazz and blues (I prefer blues to jazz). I love Irish and Scottish music (I love the bagpipes).

Anastasios, I agree with you about Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn. Patsy Cline rules. She had such a distinctive voice and style--nobody has come very close IMHO to sounding like her.

Hmmm lots of stuff, I am the band "Contradiction". ;D

Sacred:
I rather enjoy Russian and Serbian chant.
Secular:
Punk, ska, emo,electronica, lo fi indie rock, jazz (as long as it's not Kenny G elevator jazz), Weird Pop music, (Japanse club pop, Serbian folk pop, Greek Rock) Rockabilly, Country I can tolerate as long as it's Johnny Cash, Hank Sr. Loretta Lynn or Patsy Cline. That's a general overview of my collection. I have lots of other stuff that doesn't fit these catagories either.

Oh well, in general I like music and will give anything a listen.

Thansk for the compliment! ;D

Of course, if I wasn't a hick, I'd have a hard time explaining the gun rack I put in the back of a Pontiac GrandAm. :-[

Well now.... At the moment it's Slavonic Chant, & nothing but Slavonic chant until Pascha. However, on any week but Holy Week...
Jazz, bluegrass & anything with a scotts-irish feel (especially if its live), opera (Le Nozze de Figaro, my fav), anything Italian, baroque, classical guitar, country, metal, pop, r&b (not often, but every once in a while the urge is there), Russian, Turkish, Serbian pop (Goran Bregovich is particularly cool), trance (especially Russian trance, in particular PPK), classical (particularly Rahmaninov, Mozart, Beethoveen, & Dvorak), Salsa, pretty much anything with a latin beat without the rap, and even that sometimes, Russian '80s (Kino, Talkov), oldies.... need I go on... probably not...

I forgot to mention my some favorite bands:

Unreconstructed
Confederate Railroad
Rebelaires (I particularly like their rendition of Dixie which happens to be my favorite secular song)
All of these songs can be heard on Dixie Beacon Network, the only station where you'll hear dixie played every hour on the hour (www.dixiebeacon.com)

I complement you on your taste, David. Now I won't have to list these on my post (since I listen to all of them) There's plenty more Vaughn-Williams to listen to. Have you tried Hovanness?

Did you know that the "Jupiter" theme is also the hymn "I Vow to Thee My Country"?

I like all kinds of church music (Gregorian chant, Byzantine, etc.), but I'm most partial to Carpatho Rusyn Chant and the various kinds of Russian music.

Classical

My 5 favorite composers are Bach, Vivaldi, Haydn, Mozart and Handel. One of my favorite CDs is Handel's Watermusic and Music for the Royal Fireworks. Baroque music is my favorite period.

I also like Dvorak (Mor, MsGuided, my brother and I saw a performance of his 6th symphony), Wagner, Holst, and newer stuff like Howard Shore (LOTR) and the guy who composed the Braveheart soundtrack.

Other bands/peformers I like are:

ELO
Chicago
CCR
Celso Pina
Shakira (her older stuff)
Thalia (ditto)
Juanes
Eros Ramazotti
Yo-Yo Ma (Silkroad Journey, Obrigado Brasil, Simply Baroque)
U2
Celia Cruz
Buena Vista Social Club
Manu Chao

Native American flute
Electronic music and small amount of techno

South American (Chilean, Peruvian, etc)
Filk (no that's not a typo. It's the songs that grew out of the Science Fiction Convention/Historical Recreation set)
American Folk music
Organ music both older and newer. (Turn up the sound, but not so much bass that the windows land on the lawn)
Harp (Folk, Welsh, Turlogh O'Carolan...)
60's Rock (well, I *am* nearly 48)
Big Band
Musicals
Russian (the Mighty Five and Rachmaninov)

A little later if I have time tonight I think I may name my favorite two or three songs for each of the artists above. That way, if anyone is interested, they can buy the song at iTunes. Anyone else feel free to do the same. I may wait until Bright Week though as this may not be the best activity for Holy Week.

I really don't listen to music much unless I am in my pickup truck. Then I flip back and forth between the Country and Classic Rock stations.

Here are some of the bands/artists I like, not necessarily in order of preference:

  • Van Halen
  • Moody Blues
  • Grateful Dead
  • The Allman Brothers Band
  • Toby Keith
  • Martina McBride
  • Rascal Flats
  • Alan Jackson
  • Ozzy Osborne (yes, it's true)
  • Lone Star
  • Shania Twain
  • Terry Clark

That's enough, I guess, although there are many more.

I listen to all types of music, and it all depends on the situation:

When I go Clubbing I like House Music, Techno (Detroit Flavoured Techno though), Drum and Bass, Break Beats and some Trance

When I am in a mood to think: Anastasia (Macedonian Band.....mixes old stuff with new stuff), Sarah McLachlan, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Gypsy Kings (anything relaxing more or less)

When I am pissed off: Pearl Jam, Tool, Nirvana, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Ying Yang Twins, etc etc


When I am happy: Anything and everything with a good beat....from hip hop to gangster rap to rock to electronic music.

I'm just now getting into Arabic Pop (cut me some slack, though, .....I live in the rural midwest, so I don't have much exposure to culture....so I have to go on the internet or read to pick it up....sad situation indeed).....in fact, even as we speak I'm listening to Abdel Ali Slimani.

The following is a list of bands/singers/musicians that I like:

U2
Radiohead
Ravi Shankar
Aphex Twin (probably my favourite)
Mouse on Mars
Squarepusher
Miles Davis
Wire
Moby
The Clash
The Minutemen
David Bowie (another one of my favourites)
Bob Dylan (ditto)

my favourite albums are the following (in no particular order):

Miles Davis: Bitches Brew
Miles Davis: In a Silent Way
Aphex Twin: Ambient 1
Aphex Twin: Ambient 2
Ravi Shankar: Royal Albert Hall Concert for Peace
Bob Dylan: Blonde on Blonde
U2: Achtung Baby

I probably like techno the most....but not mainstream techno...I like what goes by the nauseatingly pretentious term "intelligent dance music" (IDM)

There are some great ones listed:  Morphine, Capercaillie, Clannad, Hank Williams . . .

I have to toss in my hat for renaissance polyphony.  I know I've mentioned Josquin Desprez a lot, so I'll add Dufay.

I don't see a lot of Jazz here, though, so I'll add Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Woody Herman, etc.


As for my ear candy tastes,

I was a folky in high school and there are long lists of musicians like Jackie Daly, Kevin Burke, Andy Irvine, etc.

As for punk stuff, I haven't seen The Toasters listed.  Yes, they are third-wave ska, but skaboom was a great album and a lot of fun.

I also enjoy Brave Combo (Polkas), Fred Eaglesmith, Bill Chambers and Audrey Auld, Man or Astroman?, etc.

Here we go...:
*Eric Clapton
*BB King
*Albert King
*Stevie Ray Vaughan (I'd have to argue, he could play Hendrix's stuff better than Hendrix)
*Allman Brothers (when Duane was still alive)
*Derek Trucks Band
*Muddy Waters
*Robert Johnson
*Los Lonely Boys (not to bad, not to bad at all)
*Gary Moore (though, his blues are to "monster ballet" at times)
*Journey (hey, don't laugh, Steve Perry has a rocking voice)
*Ravi Shankar
*Bob Marley
*Jimi Hendrix (man, that man could play the blues, so much better than rock)
*Albert Collins
*Mandarin soundtracks ("Hero" "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" etc.), as well as non-Mandarin ("Pashion of the Christ" "Braveheart" etc.)
*Chen Jun
*Last, and certainly not least, 12 Girls Band (really, give these gals a chance, they are the best)

*Eric Clapton

Remember how during the Clinton Administration, Joycelyn Elders, Clinton's Surgeon General of blessed memory, said during an interview that she loved listening to the music of "Eric Clappner."  I think of her remark every time I see his name. LOL

Oh man, how could I forget BB King, Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson.  I saw BB King at the Old Lady Brady when I was fifteen.  That man and his entire band are incredible musicians.

. . . and Stevie Ray . . . man, I need to get back into my CD collection and pull some stuff out.

A really wonderful cd with SRV is "Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan in Studio" (or something like that).  It's a wonderful cd, get it ("Pride and Joy" on that cd is the best I've ever heard it).

yeah....my verbal attack on Moby, notwithstanding, I still love his music......and I like Johnny Cash....although if i delved into country more, I would also probably enjoy Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson......none of that "new" country crap, with its shallow cliched "good ole boy" lyrics and its flowery sentimentalism.....old counrty sang about REAL issues like smoking weed and murder and going to prison

I like:

Renaissance and Baroque, some Folk, Folk/Jazz fusion, Gregorian chant, Clannad, trad Celtic, and Russian Church music, ie Rachmananov's (probably spelt it wrongly) composition of the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. I want to get hold of some Coptic music too.
