    Default Favorite Music

    So, I see all these usernames, but know nothing about you people, or what you are interested in. So, what's everyone's favorite music? Feel free to post a link to like a youtube video or something...

    I'll start off:
    I'm a dedicated fan of Electronic music (trance and techno in particular) and will listen to most of it (except maybe speedcore and some of the sillier subgenres). As an introduction to Electronic music, I really suggest this video:

    For those people who haven't heard:
    "Pushing the edges of the new world of music marketing, Trent Reznor's Nine Inch Nails is offering a free download of its latest album, The Slip."

    I don't know that I have a favorite genre. There's just music out there and I like some of it.

    These days I probably spend most of my time finding new melodic/operatic/viking metal. (in any combination)

    Andre Andersen, Nightwish, Dragonforce, Tır, Moonlyght, Lordi.

    One must include other rock bands like Green Day and Offspring.

    That being said I also have a lot of albums by:
    Mike Oldfield, Jean Michel Jarre, Yanni, Vangelis

    also:
    The Battlefield Band, The Chieftans, Enya, Lorenna McKennitt

    When possible, I like finding energetic, melodic dance music. I think my biggest musical taste is 'melodic' rather than some styles which are too repetitive for my taste. I'm thus very picky about the dance music I like.

    Yes, my musical taste is all over the map.

    My musical interest started up with Deep Purple's "Made in Japan" at age of 12.
    Followed by all the well known progressive oldtimers Black Sabbath, Led Zep, ELP, etc.
    And Pink Floyd of course! (preferably prior "Wall" area)

    Nowadays i'm more into what is called "World Music", Deep Forest, Air, Boozoo Bajou, Buddha Bar Samplers, Asian/Arabic Sounds...

    Lately Peter Green's "In the Skies" is running up and down again...


    Good taste all you fellow GEhackers!

    @Munden

    Mike Oldfield is awesome. Dragonforce is good too, but after a point they get so...repetitive. The others I've never heard..
