I'm very eclectic in my taste. I had a huge record collection from 1965-1990 that I sold to a young man a few years ago who promised to take care of the vinyl I loved so much. I wasn't going to have several hundred albums taking up room in my house anymore. Now I ask Alexa to play something.

I listen to everything from Bach to Eminem. Whatever I'm in the mood to hear.

Depends on what I'm doing.

if I'm sitting around waiting for dinner to be done, it's Bob Dylan.
if I'm just bored, it's Bob Dylan. lol

if I'm cleaning the house, it's Straus waltzes. They are so energetic! I dance while vacuuming and dusting!

Miles Davis and Coltrane are great for mood...when I'm feeling rebellious for no reason.

if I can't fall asleep, it's Gregorian Chant.

80s and light jazz. 80s is my favorite. I was waiting by the TV when MTV first went on the air. I think it was 1981. Nonstop 80s music videos.

I love Bossa Nova (Girl from Ipanema etc), Native American Flute (R.Carlos Nakai), oldies, Texas red dirt country. That about covers it.

Lately all I can listen to is Chris Cornell, the Soundgarden singer who died in April by his own hand. The voice and songwriting of an angel, a terrible loss. I don't care for the full-on band sound (too much fuzz and noise for these ears) but oh, that singing and lyrics. A warrior poet.

I like a good voice. Some alt-country women are just wonderful.

Very weary of classic rock.

At night, jazz.

There's always Bach.

80's is my favorite but I listen to all genres, except rap. Definitely classical, it never goes out of style. I am one of the few who listens to music released after I turned 40. I also attend about a dozen concerts a year.

I attended at least two dozen concerts a year until recently. Contemporary artists, except country music artists, have turned their concert into an anti-Trump lecture. I now go to about six concerts a year and most are classical. I miss hearing artists live, but I'm not paying them to lecture me on politics.
