If every one hanging on this forum put only one link to some music, this thread will really become huge, and most important, we will get good music from all around the world.

At first, I was thinking to ask you "What are your 2 favorites songs, one from your country and one from anywhere. But, when searching for music from my country, the best I was able to find are songs like Swiss Music! (Schwyzerörgeli - Swiss diatonic accordion) or Eliana Burki and her alphorn. And I really prefer the music when it is some text with it.

I could not find better (Stephan Eisher, the well know swiss singer, made me to become trist) than stuffs like Va prom'ner l'chien- Beau Lac de Bale or Switzerland Reggae - Bernie Constantin. So well. it is hard because I really prefer other French speaking artists like Les pauvres - Plume Latraverse or La complainte du progrès - Boris Vian. This is non exhaustive. I like a lot of other good French music.

Among the non French speaking, i like songs like Latinoamérica: Calle 13, Gustavo Dudamel y la Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar en los Grammys, Revolución - Raúl Paz, rock version of Hasta Siempre or Music is a weapon - Fela Kuti - Sverige TV - sound of the emission Fela Kuti and his 1st group, Africa 70 - filmed by Ginger Backer.

Hopefully, music is about all that made our life inclusive peace: Olga Tañon - Paz sin Fronteras Los Van Van y todos los catantes - Paz sin Fronteras

Something I like to do with music is to dance with my wife. Here is some dance music I like: Musica cubana.

I know only one person that is allergic to music. So, if every one hanging on this forum put only one link to some music, this thread will really become huge, and most important, we will get good music from all around the world.

I know some Swiss music I like. It's not typical of Switzerland, though, but I for one am quite fond of Samael.

What kind of music do I like? Short answer: Metal
I happen to like metal and don't really care which country it is from, although my favourite bands are from Scandinavia.
As for German music... well, I don't like traditional German music all that much. I like quite some German bands, mind.
For example Die Apokalyptischen Reiter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJ6cM6mOZkM
Some Swedish music - a huge fan of this band. The song is not representative, as it is very calm, which others are not. Moreover, between albums they often changed their style.
Therion, Ship of Luna: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sAMbSIwh7Q

Apart from metal in every shade I like various other songs and styles. Tori Amos is a favourite amongst these non-metal artists, but there are more.

First off, my musical tastes. I grew up in the 60's and 70's, so I am heavily influenced by the music of that era. I love Rock and Roll with a heavy Blues influence. I also love the works of Mozart and Beethoven, but I am not a fan of the Romantics, such as Tchaikovsky, or the majority of Italian Opera. Old Americana, old Country and Bluegrass are also good.

If I was to pick just one favorite song, it would be (at the time of this writing) Kashmir by Led Zeppelin; most notably the version from the Page and Plant album titled No Quarter.

Favorite group would be Pink Floyd, hands down.

Favorite American artist would be tougher, but right now I will say (and this is always subject to change) The Allman Brother's Band and/or The Doors.

- Country

That's.... it...

I'm currently listening to the Rolling Stones.

Basically the first rule of FGO is Wagner sucks.

That said, I'm listening to a lot of progressive metal, fusion metal(hate the term fusion but eh), and jazz.

The Classical Über Genre first. From early Baroque to 20th century... with Bach being god and Beethoven being his prophet.

Followed by Goa. Both Psychedelic Trance and Psybient

Then Progressive metal, such as this.

Some world music, with a specific love of Mongolian/Tuvan/Tibetan throat singing and Indian classical.

Some industrial, like Einstürzende Neubauten.

And finally, Jazz... but more specifically Intense fusion.


Classic rock is in there as well, but I'm extremely picky about the bands I enjoy (Pink Floyd, Rush, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, (late) Beatles).

I'll take country above that garbage known as "Rap"... and I can't stand country (aside from some bluegrass).

In Swedish music, I like Bob Hund. His music is some kind of a mix between punk, pop and ballade. With a very different style, Jan Hammarlund is a very good author and singer. One of its song is one of the best I know, the text is as good than magine from John Lennon: Dom som vi behöver ("The ones we need" or "Peoples we need"), a song calling for tolerance.

That's performance art, not music.

What I like isn't defined by genre; I like most genres. When I hear something, I either like it or I don't. I think that's based on whether it appeals to my particular musical aesthetics and whether it seems innovative and well-executed.

Sounds I tend to like include Acid Jazz (Jazz Fusion / New Age Jazz), Motown, Rock of all eras, and baroque harpsichord music. :lol:

I think I gravitate toward rock and jazz because both complexity of rhythm and precision of timing are important to my aesthetic sense, and guitars and pianos are exceptionally useful in providing this because, with them, a single artist can deliver melody, harmony, and rhythm that are precisely fused (because one artist is doing it).

By precise timing I don't simple, lock-step rhythms, the expressiveness of timing is often in being not precisely on-count (one sees plenty of this in jazz, just listen to something like Miles Davis' Bitch's Brew). But, it will either sound "neat" if that timing is "right", or it won't. And I want that hand-in-hand with innovative but musically appealing melody and harmony.

Mathematically, that probably means something, but it's beyond my ability to express it, and I'd rather not dissect it. I do know that when I've taken the time to listen to recent releases, I'm pretty good at picking new artists and particular songs that, months or years later, turn out to be hits.

But it's got little to do with genre. I think people who select music based on genre are missing out, or maybe they just don't have any taste or spirit of adventure.

Are you referring to modern pop country, or the real pre 1980's country?

Yeah, nowadays this qualifies as Country (by the way, suffer through the ad there and Shania will convince you she's really singing her love just to you).
