My musical tastes keep growing. Since my rock and roll upbringing, I've come to appreciate classical, jazz, blues, swing, world music especially music from ghana, and sitar ragas, trance and house music. But this week I've been listening to Jethro Tull, and Yes, old school.

No, my interest has always been current Rock. Not unusual for me to go to concerts, mainly indy bands with my daughters. I listen to everything from the 70's to current.

Yeah, I've gotten to appreciate classical more than I ever did in the past. Especially like Mozart; lots of neat stuff in his music, and the pieces he did for different instruments as 'leads'. The only genre I've never been able to digest is straight-up jazz, especially improvisational jazz - it just sounds like a bunch of guys playing out of sync with each other.

Check out the Ken Burns documentary on Jazz. It's excellent and understanding where it came from will help you hear what's going on.

This. But, my musical tastes have been expanding continuously, and are not considerably broader than in my days as a metal snob (is that a thing?).

I still like the music I liked when I was a kid, but there's a lot of things I hated back then that I really like these days.

I've been a classical music and British rock fan since I was in junior high school. Not much has changed until now.

Late 60's and early 70's blues and psychedelic rock was better than disco in the seventies, better than MTV junk in the 80's, better than whatever crap came after that, with very few exceptions.

The shizzle people forgot from '66-'73ish is better than the stuff they remember that came after.

I was born too late to claim it as my generation's music, but that's what I like.

Brian I know you like some great older music I've seen you post, but don't give up on modern music ! It's as good as music ever was. Like "jdon" above, it helped that my daughters are into music. I've been taking them to the Warp Tour & concerts all through their younger years and really miss that now that they're old enough to drive themselves.

We have days devoted to 60's, 70's & 80's I'm going to start a Modern Music Monday thread to show you guys that R & R is still alive & as good as ever As far as other genres of music, I developed a real appreciation of jazz from my college roommate who was a jazz head. It's great music, but I see it as more "background" music. Country is great but lyrics are so literal. Rock music lyrics are more like abstract art, you can usually make your own interpretation of what the songs is saying.

Of course it has. I've expanded my horizons in music constantly from my teens on. But often towards the older music than I am rather than much of the newer. I do pick through the newer some but don't really peruse through the '80s metal or post punk much like the folks only a decade behind me.

I still like the best of what I used to like though.

When I was growing up, there was always country music on the radios in our house and car. As a teenager, like most, I was into rock and found myself drifting more to the southern/country rock side of it. Now that I'm older, I've come back full circle and listen more to country music. Still enjoy some classic rock too.

I can no longer stand to listen to the "Classic Rock" stations that replay popular stuff over and over and over and over. There is a local station that plays a mix of pretty much everything and I listen to them.
Yes. My tastes have changed.

I find that the happier and more settled I am in my life/career, the more I tend to listen to really heavy metal when lifting or riding. It's an interesting paradox.

As I got older, I started hearing Metallica riffs in Brahms and Bach and Beethoven. My musical taste, though, has always been very Catholic in nature, ranging from the Sex Pistols to Vivaldi.

Mostly grew up on mid 70s rock, but between my Dad's music and playing concert music in school my tastes varied pretty widely even as a youngster. Now I think just about any music that had a genre in the late 60s to early 70s is my favorite now. Whether country, jazz, or rock that music just seemed so raw and experimental. A lot of times a studio recording wasn't that far off from a live recording which gave the music more personality. I also love 70s funk music like Sly and the Family Stone and Funkadelic. Just about anything with horns. I like the way a lot of those groups had multiple vocalists that would come in and out on different verses and layer over each.

The cabinet door under our kitchen sink sounds like a Stevie Wonder beat when it slams shut. It kind of bounces and makes a BAM, bam, bama, bam sound.
My stocking feet sound like Donovan's "Mellow Yellow" when I walk across a tile floor.
For real.

I was 15 when a friend of mine told me to "sit here in front of the speakers and listen to this!" He played Comfortably Numb. From that day forward I have been a major Floyd freak. I have every album on CD. I started collecting them on Gold CD when that was going on. My dream was to play the Comfortably Numb solo on guitar. I never had a guitar until my wife bought me one for my 38th birthday.

I don't know how to actually play the guitar. I do though play just about every Pink Floyd song except for Comfortably Numb. I won't learn that one. If I did, I'd reach my goal and I'd be done.

9 times out of 10 I am putting on some Floyd at least once whether in the car or at home. I have most of their concerts on DVD or recorded on the DVR. My phone is filled up with Pink Floyd and the Darkside album cover prism is usually the avatar I use in forums.

So, I don't think my genre of music has changed. Heck, the particular band hasn't changed at all.

Oh, love me some Led too. And for summer time, nothing beats some 5150 or OU812. My 3 go to bands all right there.

Acapella from the 50's anyone?

Grew up in the Phila area in the 50's/60's and loved street music. Still do. Groups like the Nutmegs, Zircons, and most recently, Cool Change from the movie Bronx Tale were and still are my favorites. By the way, a few years ago I would infrequently hear a song with the lyrics, "I thought that you would understand, I'm not a one women man, baby come back to me.....I've made mistakes yes that is true but the biggest one I made with you....." I was only able to catch snippets and never able to determine the title or group name but from what I heard it was an acapella sound that might have made a minor inroad into the charts. Anyone able to identify or help me find a copy/website with this song? Other than that, my taste ranges from swing, rock, soul, some of the old country music and even classical at times. Have always appreciated that talent that creates and performs a song no matter what the genre.
