What Music Genre Best Suits You?

Music. It surrounds us every day of our lives, fills us with memories, changes our mood, lifts our spirits, brings out tears. We couldn't escape music if we tried. There are so many genres of music, from classical to metal, from typical 80's music to rock 'n' roll. So many different singers, bands and recordings. So many different things to sing about, so many images to see before us through the communication that music brings to us. Many of us like a range of different music, though if we had to choose, what would we say? What has the biggest fan base? So what music genre best suits you?

I LOVE rock! I don't mind metal, but it can be hard to feel the emotion within it, so I prefer artists like Queen, Bon Jovi, Guns n roses etc.

A person after my own heart! Rock is my all time favourite too!

I voted "Other," even though country is listed. I love country music, but I despise what is passing his "country music" today. I don't want anyone confused thinking I might like this modern stuff.

Of course, I also love rock, punk, oldies, pop singers like Sinatra, and jazz like Django Reinhardt. But NOTHING touches my soul like a good Louvin Brothers song.

I love all music. From heavy metal to folk to 40's even music from other countries. (I might not understand the words but I understand music.)

I really can't choose as I like a lot of different types of music I don't have a certain type really.

I listen to a lot of modern country and classic rock. A lot of what was called rock when I was a teen would now be considered country. I'm thinking most specifically of the Eagles and others like them.

Some of the current country music isn't bad, but as my sons tell me, there is a reason the abbreviation for Country-RAP is CRAP.

I love all kinds of music from pop to classical but I'm a rocker at heart.

It's not a discussion of whether the music is good. It is a discussion of whether it fits the definition of "country music." The Clash's "London Calling" is one of my all-time favorite albums, but it isn't country.

You got me there. My wife and I were discussing this yesterday. I referenced a scene in Amadeus where the Emperor tells Mozart his symphony had too many notes in it. That seems to be how a lot of the new country is. There's too much noise in the music. No fiddles, no steel guitars, too much electric mayhem. Thirty years ago they would have been classified as rock, a la The Eagles, who are these days being played on 'country' stations. When I was growing up, country was Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Conway Twitty, Whispering Bill Anderson, and the like.

I voted for Classic, but is seems that my vote did not add up, my second favorite is rock.

Ruby3881 wrote on January 12, 2015, 11:13 AM

I voted other because there's no way I could choose just one! I love everything from folk rock and rockabilly, to classic rock, to Celtic and Québécois music.

I might be sick but I'm not sick enough to vote .. I will always be a punk rocker, I wish you could tick more boxes because I would have ticked all of them .. I also like Irish folk music!

Elfbwillow wrote on January 12, 2015, 5:30 PM

I think that is the problem with a lot of genres. Even rock seems to have changed over the years, and although some so called rock songs of today are good, they are not the 'real' rock of yeasteryear

Elfbwillow wrote on January 12, 2015, 5:53 PM

Music certainly has its own language which, its true, even if you can not understand the words, you can still understand the music

Elfbwillow wrote on January 12, 2015, 6:01 PM

If I had to choose, it would be rock for me, though I do love lots of different genres and songs too

I love Korean OST ( Sound track ), I listen to korean songs most of the time although I do not understand a single word

Elfbwillow wrote on January 13, 2015, 5:34 AM

It is amazing how the stance of genres change in music. I also find a lot of so called rock these days is just not what I would class as rock

j2401 wrote on January 14, 2015, 5:56 AM

I voted dance music but really I like any music except country and western and ja

OOpps I meant to say jazz! I just cant get into those

While I voted for Country, I am just as comfortable with Sarah Brightman and the Irish Tenors. :)

Most of the time, groovy music with a strong rhythm, other time classical, folk, rock, you name it.

Anything as long as its has a great and meaningful lyrics in it. Almost every song that has a great lyrics that I heard has the same great music in it. Maybe because it is really coming from the heart of a dreamer or a very positive song writer that is full of love. Heheheh.

I like all kinds of music but I grew up listening to Classical first because my Mom listened to it. So, to this day it really suits me.
