Always a fun question. I have fairly eclectic musical tastes, but I tend to gravitate toward old school alternative (late 70's - mid 80's), goth, darkwave, industrial, and Celtic (trad and modern).

I would have to go with Frank Zappa 100%. I can listen to something of his and then the next day hear something completely new in the same song.

I'm probably the minority with this, but I love wrestling themes. Started in 1998 and continues today. I listen to rock, metal, a tiny bit of rap (like 1 or 2 songs actually), and basically anything that makes me want to move.

Hmmm. I do seem to be listening to an awful lot of Roy Zimmerman (political satirist) lately. A rare talent; the words "Tom Lehrer reincarnated" would come to mind if only Lehrer were actually dead (a distinction I'm sure Lehrer himself would appreciate), but unlike his predecessor, Zimmerman also writes seriously good serious stuff. His lustful and slightly kinky love song to Dick Cheney still has me in stitches.

There is very little music I won't listen to (and probably like) at least once in a while.  I love music, period.  I don't really have a favorite genre--my favorite band would probably be Over the Rhine, which is...  er...  kind of soft-indie-rockish, I guess?  But I also really get into a lot of heavier rock, trance, folk, pop, "world" music, the occasional classical piece (orchestral or vocal), some country and bluegrass here and there, a bit of a capella, a touch of electronica...  The list goes on.  I don't even know how to classify some of it.  My favorites tend to not really group together along any lines that I've determined yet.  Mostly it's about the emotional response that they inspire, but, hey, there are songs that I just like 'cause I like the way they sound, too.  Shrug.

I find very few people who have as an ecclectic taste as my best friend and I do. We listen to just about everything. There's a little R&B, rap, country, hard rock, soft rock, 70's, and the occasional broadway musical thrown in. I love celtic both new and old. It's such a beautiful sound; it helps me meditate or sleep.

I think I'm a little late to this, but oh well. I can't sleep so here I am.

Because of the city where I grew up I have a lot of love for classic(80's/90's) hip hop and R&B. Because of the kids I used to skate with I love old school punk and older rock(Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains, Gray Matter The Stooges ect.). Because of some other friends I grew up with I like some electronic (Tricky, Bjork, Portishead, Massive Attack, Daft Punk, Royksopp) and rock(Blur, Radiohead, The Strokes, Weezer, Beck). Because half my family is Puerto Rican, I love all the latin genres - Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Cumbia and my grandmother from the other side got me into Johnny Cash as a little kid. I love jazz too(sorry there's no 'because' for this one).

Probably over-answered the question huh?

Anyways, lately I've been listening to Beck - Modern Guilt and Weezer - Pinkerton.

Some good taste in music in these parts.

I like a lot of music; EBM, darkwave, industrial, drone, "steampunk". Really like beats and 80s electronic sounds together. Stuff like Front 242, Bigod 20, Laibach, X-Marks the Pedwalk, Leæther Strip, Skinny Puppy, Das Ich, Zdziz Beks, Oneiroid Psychosis, Velvet Acid Christ, Abney Park, among tons of others. I find that 80s and early 90s music is the best, with bands that originated in that time still being good. 70s electronic like Ash Ra Tempel/Ashra or Bruce Haack is great too, back when they used circuit bending to create sounds.

I have odd taste in music.  Love old 70's/80's punk, goth and new wave.  I could listen to Joy Division, Bauhaus and The Smiths every day.  But I also love classic rock, Celtic music, folk and even some modern rock.  Not much for death metal, rap, country or screemo (sp) but I don't hate it either.  I just went through a strange Our Lady Peace thing and for about a month I listened to them almost every day.  Things come and go for me.

Music must be one of the great gifts of the Gods.  My one Grandmother sang Opera on stage and as a small child was introduced to Classical Greats.  Her voice sang everything beautifully, though, from "Danny Boy" to all the childhood classics.  My Grandfather used to pick me as his Polka partner all of the time.  Mama loved the Big Bands, my Dad was pure country from the old school, with a taste for some r&b.  My kids listen to everything, for better or worse.   Grin  Yikes, I feel like I'm short changing them all, really.  Our world has always been filled with music and song.

I love it all and some.  Classic Rock is my personal catch all, but that includes so much, but two of my favorites bands happen to be The Moody Blues and Pink Floyd.  Or am I still Waylon Jenning's gal...or all that and more?

One of the great things about music and song is that even if my voice isn't so good, it still feels great to sing.  Listening to my kids singing along to the radio in the car never fails to bring me joy and hearing one of the kids out at the close line belting out a song, somehow, almost always brings tears to my eyes.  Music must, indeed, be a huge gift.

Pretty sure I answered something like this on here a long time ago, but it doesn't take much encouragement to get me to go on about music.

I like a little bit of everything and a lot of the blues.  Especially electric blues.  Especially electric blues guitar.  I heart Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert King, and Buddy Guy.  And, OMG, Jimi Hendrix!  (Relatively new convert to the Church of Hendrix - well, a few years now - my enthusiasm knows no bounds.)

Also this:
hu
Love old 70's/80's punk, goth and new wave.  I could listen to Joy Division, Bauhaus and The Smiths every day.
This is pretty much what I did listen to every day in high school and college.  Still have a BIG crush on Peter Murphy.

Then there's Classic Rock - Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Doors.  The Beatles - after they discovered drugs.  And did I mention Hendrix?

And old-school country - I'm suddenly obsessed with Johnny Cash.

Folk music - Particularly middle Eastern and anything with a lot of drums.  And of course Irish (something with a good fiddle in it though, I'm totally burnt out on "atmospheric" Irish stuff like Clannad and Enya.  Used to listen to them constantly.  My sweetie still does.)  Bluegrass.

Jazz - As long as it's hot.  Don't like light jazz AT ALL.  Gimme some Bird, or Monk, or Miles.  Some 'Trane though he can get too too mellow for me depending on my mood.  Older big band stuff like Glen Miller.  The first concert I ever saw was Dizzy Gillespie and I will always love him. 

Classical - (Using the term in the common sense, not referring a specific musical period) Don't like anything to "pretty" (Chopin gives me hives)  Love Stravinsky, Lizst, Bach, Wagner - anything with real power behind it.

Catch all ("alternative"? "New Wave?") rock-ish - The Cult, U2, Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, The Police, The Alarm

Don't like modern country at all, and I've yet to meet a rap song I liked but I remain somewhat open to the possiblity - at least in theory.  Kinda clueless on anything recorded after about 1990.  Don't really do "dance" music, though I have been known to whirl around madly to the Doors.

Classical- I'm a huge fan of Handel, Mozart, Chopin, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky

Classic Rock- Stevie Nicks, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Jefferson Airplane

New Metal- Disturbed, Amon Amarth, Dethklok (even though they're not a "real band" I love their music)

Bollywood! Bollywood! Bollywood! I love the music and can dance around to it all day. I'm a big Nancy Ajram fan as well and I love Baladi. Dead Can Dance gets pretty heavy rotation. Rupaul, don't really know how to classify her. Dance? Brazillian Samba is also good to me, perfect "house cleaning" music- mopping and swinging hips is great exercise.

I have very eclectic tastes, I love just about all music- rap will get some play if I'm in the mood as well. The only music I don't listen to is country.

Oh I'll jump in here too.  We all seem to have pretty ecclectic tastes...  I listen to just about anything depending on my mood.  Typically I'm happy listening to classic and new alternative.  I go through phases where I veto Country, but then will willingly listen to it other times. If I really need a country fix I will put in Dwight Yoakum and am good to go for a while.

A month ago I got done listening to Hoopy Frood over and over and over again.  They fall into the Psy-Ambience genre, depending on who you talk to.  Too many bands/artists that I like to list, and tomorrow the list would be completely different, I few that I think would always be near the top - (in no particular order) - Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, The White Stripes/The Raconteurs, U2, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Cure, Depeche Mode - ok that's enough.  Cheesy
