I struggle with this. I feel that I sound too much like a cunt when I say "loads of stuff".
Country AND Western.
drum and bass
My musical taste is entirely correct.
What I like is good; what I do not like is not good.
It's a simplistic Venn diagram but it suits.
When pressed, "I like stuff which makes me think / suits the mood I am in / doesn't offend me / does offend me / is produced by cunts / is made by nice people"... Such is the duality of man (Sir).
Future of the left
That's it, that's all there is.
(There is no music, only Slayer)**
i like a lot of stuff but mostly nerds with guitars trying to be clever and then a lot of pop music and a bit of motown
^i like this
which is normally enough to scare idiots away from pressing further.
the reply I was "Oh really? I really love Norah Jones"
fyi I like Norah Jones
But I fucking love a few artists in almost every genre.
The cheapest way to get to my heart is with a massive breakbeat.
i.e. Throbbing (Prince to post-Dubstep). Miserable (Weezer to Tim Hecker).
For the record I loved the idea of 'sigh-fi'. I can see why you cling to it so.
although I suppose it's only as clever as trip-hop.
I like a bit of everything.
someone at work started going on about Pebbles compilations after I said 'loads of stuff' the other week and I got vaguely excited cos I have one of those comps. But then he revealed himself to be a racist and started going on about Mein Kampf so that ruined it a bit.
should've flagged that up really.
white and weak
Oh you know, eighties music and noisy things.
of indie and indie.
Gonna use that from now on.
I'm a knob.
I've found the whole "what music do you listen to" question kinda obsolete, cos everyone keeps saying "everything". I'd describe mine probably as "primarily Indie, Rock, Metal and Dance, but only the good stuff"
The three amigos.
metal and punk pop, now im old and listen to everything i don't know what to say. once i showed my last.fm account on my phone
Was how an old girlfriend described mine. Nowadays I just say "anything with a weird noise in it somewhere."
but I just refuse to answer the question. I turn the tables and ask them what they're into and riff from there. Obviously it's a short conversation if they are similarly non-commital but I mean, where do you start?
or fun sounds from Sweden
I live in a country where almost any discussion in music follows this line:
They : "I like pop, R&B, hip-hop and punk"
Me: "oh really? Like who"
They : Well, I like punk like Avril.
They: "Avril Lavigne"
I have discovered that it is nearly impossible to have a discussion with any of my Chinese students or friends about music. And what passes as mainstream pop music here is diet copies of Western sounds with tonnes more saccharin included.
I hate saying a bit of everything coz that makes it sound like I only ever listen to Radio 1. My mate says that I love shit, so I just tell people that.
