Music... What is your favorite?

My taste in music is extremely varied. What are your favourites, be it song, album, band, genre, live performance or other.

My favorites are...
Band - ABBA
Song - Days of Nothing - The Foreshadowing
Album - The Doors (Movie Soundtrack)
Genre - Doom Metal
Live Show - Eurovision Song Contest
Music Podcast - KEXP Song of the Day

I'm hoping to find something New to listen to.

Re: Music... What is your favorite?

I like Brotherhood of Man. The song that got me interested in Eurovision was Lordi - Hard Rock Hallelujah. My favorite year was 2011.

The BROTHERHOOD OF MAN had enormous success from 1975 to 1979 because of thePROLIFIC songwriting team of HILLER/SHERIDEN/LEE (Tony Hiller famous producer ).
Martin Lee (Moustache) is the handsome singer married to Sandra Stevens Heart ( Beautiful blonde) in the group.
When Lordi the metal band were on Eurovision I had some Old ladies in Sainsburys next day tell me that they left the room thinking it was NOT Eurovision Smiley Surprised but I explained that it WAS Eurovision but a slightly "different" entry from Finland Smiley Surprised.
 By the way I left the room alsoSmiley LOLSmiley Wink ( I had to get a cup of coffee)

Re: Music... What is your favorite?

This might sound very strange but I seem to lean towards the blues, mostly the old versions a lot of the most popular artists but I also like the not so well known ones.

Having said that I also don’t mind listening to R&R R&B and Northern Soul as well as Soul.

Artists I like are too many to list.Smiley Wink

Hey Boston you don't sound strange any one who does not listen to Soul music is strange.   All popular music came out of the blues at some point.  

 

The sad fact is there aint many bands to see live these days playing good RnB and soul. But I happened to meet band a few months ago who are from Denver Colorado they have new album out they are gigging in the UK in October and February 2016.

 

You have to check out 'Nathaniel Rateliff and The Nightsweats"  I saw their gig a few months back  it was the most amazing soulful, bluesy RnB sound I have heard in years.  I was emotionally exhausted after the gig it was heart wrenching music.

Re: Music... What is your favorite?

I first got interested in the blues in the mid 90's when I started getting 'The Blues Collection' magazine and realised that most of my favorite bands were influenced by these musicians. I still have the CD's but the magazines are long gone.

Re: Music... What is your favorite?

Rammstein & Deathstars are good. Dimmu Borgir are excellent. I've not heard of the others. I'll have to YouTube them when I get the chance.
