Websites For Music-Lovers

Updated on August 27, 2017

Everybody loves music. But some folks really love music. They are not casual listeners satisfied with pop radio on the way to work. They don't just sing in the shower or slide in a CD when guests arrive. They are not content with the concept of elevator music or muted background renderings. They see and hear music as the heart and soul of life, the story-telling, gut-wrenching, healing antidote to all the world's ills. No matter what genre of music has captured them, no matter whether they are musicians themselves, these aficionados take music seriously. They are not alone in their enthusiasm. Here are 10 music forums to share in and to sing about.

Music Discussion - This is an active forum with over 1400 members. They encourage quality discussions about music and discourage spam and trolls. They cover just about all the genres and have a sub-category specific to musicians. They also have a "Name That Tune" category which is a lot of fun. This is a friendly and member-oriented group.

Face The Music - This forum is light on discussion and heavy on music. They welcome member input and encourage videos. Though the membership is not large, it is vibrant and you can be sure people will be interested in your contribution. Besides the usual music genres, there is a category on historic music and Broadway. This is a great place to share your favorite music video.

Pulse Music Board - Pulse Music Board is one of the best of the forums. It has almost 700 members who are active enough to have generated over 73,000 topics and over 2 million posts. Here they not only discuss the music but the artist as well. They cover a broad range of topics and include polls, games, nostalgia and opinions. They cover global music as well.

Zero Gain - The folks at Zero Gain are not only interested in music but they are interested in what it takes to listen to it.
