    Hi.

    The 72bands post really got me thinking....

    What bands / genres get the people on this forum going?

    I'd love to find out.

    Cheers,
    Devin.

    P.S. I've even heard Tezza make mention of a guitar....

    Anything and everything... there is not much I don't like, actually can't think of anything really...oh, except ABBA. That is worst lot of TV jingles, I've ever heard.

    Someone said...can't remember who..Anything that is too stupid to say, usually ends up being sung. I think that must have been Led Zepellin's motto - but I like their sound. Just have to try not to listen to the words, or I run round all day saying, "What the...was Jimmy on about?"

    Love Sinead O'Connor's protests. And still pull Melanie out...

    I am lucky in that I have a kid who can play anything, and even luckier I don't mind listening to it. She pretty much makes sure the whole day is a cavalcade of music, whether she's singing or playing and we have instruments all over the farm, so she's always picking them up (when the rest of us are doing the work :wink: ). But I can't complain, it always sounds pretty good.

    Everything from Vera Lynn, Fats Domino to blues, opera, pop, metal, disco, all ballads, folk, C & W, NO JAZZ and not much Rap either. I am also a bit iffy about 70s band like Led Zepp and Pink Floyd that turn a 3 minute song into a 10 minute bang/clang thing that wont finish.

    I have a collection of about 4000 hit songs over 70 years if anyone wants a song I can email it. I am also looking for a 70s aussie hit called 'Captain Zero'[the one and only super-natural hero] if anyone has it.

    Particularly taken by a portugese style of music called Fado.

    Tully, by Melanie did you mean Melanie Safka?

    Tezza, dont try karaoke at your funeral you will upstage and piss the funeral director off.

    Cheers,............ PS, I have fixed my 'signature'... :D:D

    I like most music genres but I don't like much C&W. I do like Patsy Cline and George Jones. I love some classical music and some opera, particularly Madam Butterfly.

    I LOVE blue grass - the really hick foot shuffling stuff from up in the appalacians.

    I like Portishead, Radiohead, Bjork, Mercury Rev, some of the Killers newish CD, Eminem, Ray Charles, Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, the Vines, the Pixies, REM, Blossom Dearie, Leonard Cohen, the pre-electric Bob Dylan, Ani DiFranco, Deborah Conway, Beck, Captain Beefheart, The Who, but not after Keith, Foo Fighters, dandy warhols and much much more.

    yeah, I like aphex twin and my bloody valentine, tom waits too. He's a classic. Oh and the Pogues! Shane McGowan is one of my anti-establishment heroes.

    Turnsile, did you even get into Whitehouse?

    I'm a J's listener, and love it.... :D

    With a very diverse range of likes, depending on the situation, everything from Marina Prior and Enya, through to Tool and blink 182.

    some faves include :
    Archie Roach (have all his albums, brilliant )
    Jebadiah
    Jack Johnson
    Little Birdy
    Missy Higgins (shame she became so popular)
    Tiddas
    Waifs
    Eskimo Joe
    Sia
    Hilltop hoods
    Youth group
    End of fashion
    Strange, all except one of the above is AUSSIE .. :D
    I'll even admit to being a bit of a closet Kasey Chambers fan.

    Forest, you like some coool music... Ani Difranco is an amazing woman, I know Deborah Conways white roses off by heart (I sing it in the shower :oops: ), and do you have Nick Caves murder ballads? What a brilliant album, although it's rather dark the man has some great skills.

    Turnstile, I was sent a compliation CD from a friend in the UK. Whitehouse was on it. They are absolutely mind splitting, not sure that I liked them but their singer, William Bennet seems to be a complex pandora's box. Here's a link, beware naughty words for young eyes: https://www.neox.demon.co.uk/whitehouse/

    Joel, I don't have Murder Ballards but one of my sons does. Unfortately he took it to Canada with him. :( It's a fine album. Did you know Nick Cave wrote the script for the film, The Proposition. I'd love to see it but I can never be bothered going to the movies anymore. Crowds are a bit more than I can take.
