    why do you start a post asking us what we like and don't offer what you like?


    I like dance/pop, jazz, and movie soundtracks the best.

    I was gonna say what I like later, but since you asked, I love rock music first, Bon Jovi, Brian Adams, My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park, Green Day, Cold Play, Nightwish and System of a Down.

    But as a matter of fact i like everything, I listen to hip hop - Eminem, r&b Justin - Rihanna, and the list will never stop, thats the reason why i just wanned to make it clean on my first post, cause i like pretty much everything, but if i had to choose, i would say rock.

    My usual stuff is just generic alternative. Yellowcard, Graham Colton Band, Spill Canvas, and Dashboard Confessionals are among my favourites. Recently getting into Jacks Manniquin though.

    in general : anything but mainstream - can be crossover , lounge, jazz, industrial, progressive... At work I listen to downbeat, Tosca, Thievery Cooperation, Kid Loco.., just because it is soothing and music I can enjoy for a long time. In the car..mostly rock /alternative. Billy Talent comes to mind, great for a long drive icon_biggrin.gif

    Heavy Metal, mostly. Been into Iron Maiden since about forever, Metallica since the first album. Always liked rock and roll, my musical tastes started with soundtracks when I was in grade school (Star Wars and the like), went to the Beatles soon after, and then I discovered metal. I know it's not exactly the popular choice in a gay forum, but it's what I listen to. Bands I like include Maiden, Priest, Metallica, Slayer, Machine Head, Lamb of God, Arch Enemy, In Flames, Paradise Lost, Sepultura, Dark Tranquility, Children of Bodom, Black Sabbath and many, many more. On the rock and roll side of things, love the Stones, The Who, Skynard, Rush, U2, The Black Crowes, UFO, Thin Lizzy. I can also listen to classical and some opera. Dance music doesn't do a thing for me.

    Absolute favourites are classical and alternative pop/rock as well as post Beatles 60s pop/rock. To be honest there is not a music genre I don't like at all. I even like some hip/hop.

    Most everything EXCEPT Country (I have all my teeth thank you), that weird screaming death metal that just sounds like growling into a mic, and hard core gansta rap...

    I love me some hip hop, old school classic soul (Like Earth Wind and Fire), good remixes... Madonna, Prince etc.

    It also depends on the moment i think...

    if Im having a romantic dinner, i wouldnt be playing rock music as my backgorund sound lol, but something classic, something smooth.

    If I want to run a little or rollerblade, electronic or rock music is so much good for this.

    if Im working I would say that new age is perfect, i love instrumental music, mostly Yanni.

    For dancing...well you already know, salsa, reggae and im very into hip hop dancing as well.

    My favorite song ever "The Storm" - Yanni, I can listen to it thousand times, its like a piece of cake for my ears.

    I like a lot of different songs and artists from various genres at various points in time, but I am not going to pretend that I am not stereotypically gay when it comes to my taste in music. I primarily listen to the likes of Madonna, Kylie, Britney, etc. I also listen to a lot of music imported from the UK and the rest of Europe, like Girls Aloud, Sugababes, Freemasons, Sophie Ellis-Bextor...any British guys know what I am talking about? icon_razz.gif

    I like the haunting melody of banjos dueling in the distance.
