Hmmm...the music i love...good lord. Probably at the deepest reaches of my soul the musical roots are in Celtic knots. The Chieftains, Battlefield Band, The Dubliners, etc. and as the ancestors made the migration across...so my musical palette migrates like an alluvial river plain. I'm sitting here trying to find a place to start...a name to drop, a band, something...but like the alluvial plain mentioned above, that is exactly how i feel about the music i listen to. If its fueled by the Celts, no matter how disseminated or heterogenous it's become, if there's a whisper of a bodhran in it, you can bet i'll find something about it i like. Gee Beav, is it that difficult? Well, yeah Wally, it is... There are very few forms of Celtic i don't like (by the way- saying you like "Celtic" [that's KELT-IK] is like saying "I like American music") so i suppose you could say that i lean heavily towards the folk and rock sides of said genre. And if i say i DON'T like Gospel, you'll take it completely wrong, although i don't. I don't like anything that even hints at Southern Gospel. Yet, ironically, i LOVE bluegrass. yeah, i like country, although its really taken a nosedive, save a few artists. Let's see where do we start with rock? If its from the Dirty South its good. I like the 50's, 70's, 90's (see a pattern there?). Hip Hop and rap is not music. Blues is music. Classical (Vivaldi being my favorite) is music. Opera is not pleasant. Although some musicals are. Zydeco is. Death Metal is not. Alternative can be. Anything glitter,goth, or punk can't. Urban is weak, Pop is hospitalized. Jazz is H-bomb, Big Band and New Orleans jazz is thermonuclear. Latin needs to stay there. Although Caribbean can move in and kickback. New Age has its moments, Muzak doesn't. Thats about it...i know i didn't cover Motown...sorry, i didn't cover alot, deal with it. If i made you mad cuz i didn't like your music...listen to something else, your wasting your time.
