Everyday I start out with a "cd djour", the problem being-I have too many cd"s! When I am asked what my favorite song is-I have to say ALL of them!-Does anyone else have this problem? Have you settled on just one song, or genre? Do you listen to the music, or do you hear the words?
no i'm all over the map, depending on my mood or what is going on in my life at the moment. when i am all reflective and introspective i go for the lyrics.
sometimes you just want to listen to music (voice and instruments) that can only be described as EXQUISITE.
Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman Time to Say Goodbye
I do both..I listen to the music..I pick out each instrument to hear, and I listen and absorb the words
I have an Ipod that I put on shuffle every day. I don't have one particular favorite song, there are way too many! It depends on what kind of mood I'm in what music I'm listening to and whether the lyrics are important or the beat is more important.
I feel the same way. I listen to everything from 60's surf to Static-X. It all depends on what mood I'm in. The only thing I am of my favorite song is not country....
Not to sound shovenistick, but I've found that most women are absorbed by the beats and half the time don't even know what the song is about.
It irritates me because I listen to a lot of socially concious music, and most women want the 'pop' beats that basically talk about the same junk plauging the airwaves.
So yeaaa, if it has no message...something with some substance for a change (depending on the mood), it gets trashed!
Sorry, you already sound shovenistick!
I like to listen to the rythm first. If the rythm moves me then I listen to the words. If the words are not making sense then I go for the musical track of that version of music.
Yea I only said that for effect, not an ounce of shovenism in my body, but I damn sure have a ton of women friends...and no, not on those lines. But we all are huge musical advocates in one shape or another. It's just something I've noticed from the majority of women I've met and became friends with. They always turn off the really deep substance filled tracks in favor for the more 'entertaining,' or whatever's 'hot' at the time....not all of them, but definately most of the ones I know.
I'm not sure what "socially concious music" is, but I'm pretty sure I don't have any of that...
...probably not, but you'd be surprised.
Burning Spear-Jah a guh raid
Eak a Mouse-Noah's Ark
...almost anything from Common, Talib Kweli and Mos Def
Culture-Iron sharpens Iron
....."rebel musik," an espace from the temporary, or "herb tunes" if you're a 420 child.
Anything that doesn't sound like T-Pain or lady ga-ga (if that's her name).
I always loves listening to poetic lyrics from artists but rythm of course counts too.
the music i listen to differs on mood i am in.
sometimes i can jam to metallica all day, or queen, guns n roses, styx, killers, maybe even some my chemical romance,
other days i want to hear some soul by
billy holiday, adel,etta james. amy winehouse, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings
or just older music by luis armstrong, nap king cole, paggy lee, etc
I'm with you on that one. Somedays I'm into G Love, other days I'm looking for some Mazzy Star and other days I'm into Zombie or Rage Against the Machine....Wait! I think that is "socially concious music"! I knew I had some of that!
I gotta admit, some Lynard Skinner and Bob Marley 'mellow musik' puts me in that zone.
Korn, Evenessance and Linkin Park can definately fit that category too.
Who is Paggy Lee though? Not sure if I've heard of her?
Carol King era?
check outS haron Jones & the Dap Kings - 100 days 100 nights - such a funky song love it
I'm checking it out right now, it's pretty slick..
Makes ya want to shake your tail feather lol. for soemthing extremely smooth, i also like this chick named: priscilla ahn - dream. lol but maybe too peaceful for your taste
'nap' king cole...that's funny, LOL.
Def Billie Holliday, Etta and that Whinehouse is sick! Love that woman.
A lot of Big Band era classics as well...pure vintage sometimes.
Is it true she pulled out her own teeth or something?
i have to agree with you! I tend to let my emotions be the dj!
i rarely find music that mixes lyrical depth with musical excellence. my favorite band for years was Phish - a line to show you their lyrical depth "your hands and feet are mangoes, you're going to be a genius anyway". but they can play their instruments better than anyone.
of course i grew up on CSN and Jackson Browne and Dan Fogelberg and they all got it going on. it's usually a rare mix to find an artist that actually has something good to say and can actually create good music.
Who's down for some Buck Owens or A little Buck Satan and the 666 Shooters
I sit at my PC most of the day, with Media Player randomly serving me music from a large and varied musical collection.
Could be Jazz (Pat Metheny, Jan Gabarek), Classical, Rock, Opera, World, Folk, Pop, New-Age, hip-hop occasionally.
Never listen to the words, as mostly there aren't any.
Listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Tuesday's Gone,' aaahhhh, breathe it in!
I tend to pretty much listen to anything that sounds good. Most of the times when I first hear a song I hardly listen to any of the words and often time just enjoy a good beat or something that sounds good to my ears. But yeah my fav. song always changes but I always love listening to Creed lol
I quit listening someone was very critical about my music and I listened for pleasure so it just wasn't worth it. So threw my schuffle in a drawer and packed up records and cds. I do miss it sometimes but I'm usually too busy anyway.
yea that's pretty deep man. You're a strong individual to listen to the loud sound of silence on a daily basis...certainly would drive me crazy!
How do you live without music!?!?!
I couldn't imagine. Its a part of my life every day.
So why did you stop?
I couldn't stop even if I wanted to (even though I never never would) .
I loved Heavy Metal and it's just not appropriate when you're my age. Some people felt it was important to tell me to tone it down and it happened more than once so I said screw it and quit.
Who says its not appropriate? Its appropriate to do what makes you happy. My dad is 47 and goes to concerts with me, but no one we know would have a problem with that. Why do you care so much what other people think? Tell them to screw it and mind their own business.
Don't let that be the determining factor in throwing away one of your passions (if it was that for you). If it makes you happy turn that shyt up! Skrew it, buy some headphones or something and tell people you're listening to CNN or something. Just try not to nod back and forth too hard, it's a little obvious!!! lol.
I always hear the music first and mostly. I guess being a piano player is the reason for that. Like someone else mentioned, there are songs that have just the music soundtrack to them that I will listen to at times. This can be very soothing and relaxing.
I do both. Anyway I've also decided that heavy metal can have some of the most intelligent lyrics, but it can also have some of the stupidest lyrics of all time as well.
I have my mp3 player on, I listen to music all the time, but I could never tell you what my favorite song is.
99% Music, words mean nothing most of time to me. That's why i prefer trance.
Sometimes the vocals prove to be an instrument in and of themselves. The best example I can think of is Pan.Thy.Monium's "Dawn of Dreams". Seven songs; all "Untitled", and the guy just sings meaningless gibberish.
But it's one of the best records I've ever listened to.
I have so many songs and music I love, however i don't follow a band or singer, I like a bit of everything. I listen to the music and make up my own words-I get told off for doing this by my children-LOL
I usually need to listen to the song over 10 times to hear the words.. So I listen to the music, I guess.

Pretty simple really - I listed my top 10 songs that I would listen to over and over again on a road trip. I received some pretty nice comments, and one was "I wonder what other peoples top 10 would be?" Would you care to share your top 10 road trip songs? I would like...
