Oh, wow, it would probably be quicker to say what kind of music I don't like, rather than list the ones that I do!
By and large, I don't like rap. The language and the culture it promotes turn me off, big-time. Having said that, I know that there's several artists coming into prominence that are trying to change that, so there might come a time when I include rap in my rather large fold. Right now it seems infested with violent, bigoted, mysoginist homophobes and I can't be bothered. (Plus I find it hilarious that so many of these people declare how 'hard' they are and spend all their times living in fortresses and go around surrounded by bodyguards.)
Not too keen on hip-hop, for mostly the same reason, although I might have liked one or two without realising.
Apart from that I like stuff in classical, folk, New Age, rock, techno, house, easy listening, jazz, reggae, 'world' music, ethnic and anything else I've forgotten!
Favourite bands include Enigma, Blue Gillespie, Albannach, ELO, The Beatles, Bond, The Kinks, The Script, T-Rex, Moody Blues, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Rammstein, Inner Circle, Pink Floyd, Carpenters, Kodo, Blur, Fleetwood Mac, Evanescence, Snow Patrol, Pet Shop Boys, The Monkees.
Favourtite male artists include Courtney Pine, Gerry Rafferty, Santana, Darius, John Barrowman, Bryn Terfel, Gotye, Tom Jones, Mike Oldfield, Frank Sinatra,Tiesto.
Favourite female artists include Sade, Kate Bush, Kimbra, Kathryn Jenkins, Jesse J, Adele, Duffy, Nina Simone, Julie London, Sally Oldfield, Enya, Donna Summer, Tina Turner, Cyndi Lauper, Christina Aguilera, Annie Lennox, Sarah McLachlan.
I'm also crazy for Holst 'The Planets' and anything by Mozart. Plus bhangra and Japanese anime themes. I'll also pick up on individual tracks even if I never find anything else by the artist that I like.
So yes, my playlist is pretty varied!
