    @woodbine i usually put classical music on at night with classic fm, it's really relaxing. I do love 80s heavy rock too and ed Sheeran so a lot of different viarety.

    I usually like classical music and old music but I came across this orchestra that makes modern soundtrack type music called Two Steps From Hell. It’s like modern classical music. I don’t really know how to describe the genre but it’s almost like if someone was doing something really important or heroic in a film, the music that would be playing to accompany it. Here is a song I particularly like called “Victory”.

    My music taste is pretty "old school" to be honest, stuff dating as far back as the mid 60s, early 70s to early to mid 80s.. After about 1988 British Pop went a bit naff IMO, got slightly better circa 1992 but then they brough the flippin' Spice Girls in 4 years later lol.

  • woodbinewoodbine Community Co-Production Group Posts: 4,416 Disability Gamechanger
    I've always enjoyed music from the mid 50's to early 60's, and then again from the early 70's when I was a teenager.

    I have quite varied taste in music but I tend to listen to rock music. I like all sorts of rock music from 50's rock and roll onwards. As I am typing this I am listening to Freebird by Lynryd Skynyrd.

    My music tastes are really varied and go from classical right through to Death metal. I listen to various styles on a daily basis. Currently I play 'Sound of Silence' by Disturbed a lot. I actually think its better than the Simon and Garfunkel version and i love that. The only styles of music I don't really like are Jazz and Blues. I find them rather depressing to listen to
  • mikehughescqmikehughescq Member Posts: 6,552 Disability Gamechanger
    Jazz and blues are a difficult thing to find a way into but once you do you won’t regret it. 
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 1,651 Listener
    Earlier I was watching 70's "Glam Rock" on YouTube, bit of Slade, Three Degrees, Middle of the Road, The Sweet.. Like I said in a topic last week, that bloke out of Slade, Noddy Holder, should be made up to a Sir for services to British Rock IMO.

  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 11,108 Disability Gamechanger
    I like a bit of country as part of my weekend break had a lovely hot bath with connie Francis playing away 

    Forgot some of the classics she sang

    I still think Noddy should have made at least one solo album. One of the great rock voices.

  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 1,651 Listener
    I've kind of enherited a liking of some Country music from my Dad, I used to like some of the late Kenny Rogers' stuff (He died circa last October as I recall) and Alan Jackson, only song of his I don't like is that one he did for 9/11, I find it depressing lol.

    My teenager is listening to "2000 rock-pop" meaning I get very little opportunity to listen to anything and the flat is filled with Green Day, Sum 41, Papa Roach and similar artists. 

    Apparently it 'helps her work'.

    There's no guarantees but try Sketches of Spain by Miles Davis followed maybe by Kind of Blue. Blues is a tougher one in some ways. Chess compilations are pretty great though.

    I spent most of last night listening to Mary Chapin Carpenter on YouTube.. American Country singer, had a lot of hits in the early 90s.

    My best band is Linkin Park, but that's too intense right now.  So I'm listening to strong, empowering women.  Oh and Everybody Hurts REM

    I used to, and still do, love Madness.. I remember when I was about 5 being fascinated by the video to Baggy Trousers, the flying Sax guy.

    And almost 40 years later it's still one of the best Pop videos ever.

    Yep, and it's been murdered by single women on Karaoke for years.

    I'm listening to Ferndale Community Radio in Plymouth with my DJ friend Rick.  It's a mix of Rock music, trivia and comedy sketches.  You can find it online 7-10 on a Thursday.  He gave me another wonderful shout out, thanking my 'team' of friends, neighbours, family and professionals and he  played Madness by Muse.  Love that guy  <3

    Has anyone ever listened to a band called "Vengeance"? If you love rock & roll old style, then you will certainly like their album "Last of the fallen hero's" the hero's in question are the folks in the NHS!. I've also started listening to Rag & Bone man & Sigala, plus the sound track played by AC/DC used in the Iron man movie. Yes! I like science fiction. The 80's 90's is my kind of music, but I do try to keep up with what's in for 2021. I wish you all to stay well, because the misery of covid will be over sooner than you think!

    I saw them live at Plymouth Pavilions in about 2001.  Unfortunately the sound system was poor and I had a panic attack because of the crowds.  But it was still amazing.  My favourite tune is "It must be love" and the video is awesome!
  • coylygirlcoylygirl Member Posts: 275 Pioneering
    I can't concentrate on TV (manic) so I'm listening to a lot of music.  I'm going through an 80s phase, so UB40 and Depeche Mode are doing it for me at the moment
