My music taste has changed greatly since I was 16, although the scene at the time has a big impact on me today. I loved Duran Duran when I was 16. I now love Radiohead, The National and Joy Division. Who were your favourite band when you were 16?
Thought this would be interesting as there are lots of age ranges here!
In case anyone is wondering who "Love" is the link below will take you to a performance in 2000 of the 1967 tune "Alone Again or." The song is performed virtually identically to it's original live performance.
I am usually inspired by a song but not all the music by said artist, I often think the music I hear is one hit wonder stuff. Thinking about it a bit more I can think of a few artists that have produced a lot of good music of late actually. Collide has a sound that I find enthralling, I just wish they would do more! To get a good sample look for 'wings of steel'. I really love 'flight of the concords', the humans are dead! I guess the problem is that it takes more to impress me then it used to, I require consistently great music!
although they had long broken up- my favorite band when i was 16 was The Beatles...and still is (my daughters name is Abby ) But if we are speaking of a band that was still together...Probably Pearl Jam...
Pmsl omg Sufi my friend I would deff love that just for the scrumpy and the memories. The Wurzels and the Combine Harvester song reminds me of this country girl I was, well shall we say going out with, ohhhh arghhhhhhh
At 16...hmmmm....Metallica, Pantera, Motley Crue, Ozzy, Ted Nugent, Zepplin, and so many more. I listen to everything then and now. The only thing I don't like and never have is rap. I'll even listen to Bocefus, Shainia Twain, Johnny Cash....all of them. I just love music and always have. All kinds of music are great!
This is a question that I have been asked many times. I say the answer has a lot to do with the band itself. Like with a lot of things, every band is different. I would like to ask what are your viewpoints and answers...
