Usually oldies from the 60's-90's. Sometimes stuff like Enya. While I used to listen to music all the time, in my house & car, I rarely have music on anymore. I think we are so bombarded with noise all day that some of us want silence when we are home or driving.

I've been a lifelong music fan and these days I'm still looking for good stuff to listen to. Love the Blues, Caribbean Jazz, Cajun, Bluegrass, anything that has great rhythm and good guitar or organ playing. Started watching YouTube a few years back and really enjoy the fact of being able to pull up anything from the past, or current bands of any genre.

The thing I miss, is the days of spending an entire afternoon listening to Jazz or Blues, work got in the way of that and I never got back into that particular groove of music appreciation.

In Pop music, love the 70's (CSN&Y, Dave Mason, Jeff Beck, Joe Cocker, Emerson, Lake & Palmer) and the 80's: the British RE-Invasion (The Police, INXS - ok, they were Aussie -, U2, the Alarm, Big Country, Ultravox, Robert Palmer)

In Hymns, I love what are considered the "oldies": Amazing Grace, His Eye is on The Sparrow, How Great Thou Art and my FAVORITE: "It is Well With My Soul," which I want sung at my funeral.

I listen to classic rock mostly, the blues, some R&B, some modern country, some pop, some smooth jazz. I enjoy music from the 60's to the present.

Classical music is a favorite of mine, but the local classical music station closed down. Recently, most of the music I really enjoy is from the 60s, 70s and 80s, and one of my very favorite groups is Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). After all these years, their music still sounds original and fantastic!

I listen to a variety of stuff on the radio-I go from Dave Brubeck to Otis Redding to Loreena McKennitt to Bill Monroe to Henry Mancini to Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. Listening to a little classical in the morning helps! My favorite music? The Moody Blues!

ELO's 1979 song "Don't Bring Me Down" is #7 on my list of favorite songs of all time

As for myself, in general my favorite kind of music is 80s rock (though none of those sappy ballads, please!) My Rate Your Music profile is here for more information
