what music really moves you?

thought I would start a thread here to see what kind of music the members here are really into and/or moved by..

I myself am a very big reggae fan. I do not like much after 75 from the industry. mainly into old roots, old dub, old ska.

Augustus Pablo, King Tubby, Horace Andy, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Wailers, Skatelites just to name a few.

I'm into UK Garage right now (Artful Dodger, Sunship). American R&B needs a shot of new funk. It's just a million and one ways to say, I like your butt and want to have sex with you.

I love classical music, especially the early Romantic stuff, such as Schumann, Chopin, and the like.

As for more pop-style music goes, my "A" list is Mark Schultz and Caedmon's Call... too awesome.

I also love classical music. It falls into so many genre, such as popular, movies, and religious. Music with regards to the military moves me to great pride.

Pink Floyd I spose would be high on my list, along with Otis Redding and the voice of Captain Beefheart.

It really all depends on my mood, but those three tend to take me to another place.

Carlos Santana gets the hairs on my arms standing on end when he gets going on his jams. And John Lee Hooker is a moody soul too.

To get my booty boppin' and all synapsis firing, I usually go for Trance. It's what usually helps me keep my mind going when I am doing math homework.

Trip-Hop

Trip Hop is the one for me, specially groups such as Massive Attack, Portishead and Hooverphonic (don't know if the latter classifies 100% as trip-hop, but I love their music as well).

Unifinished Sympathy anyone?

I like some trip hop also. mainly massive attack. the one guy I mention in my original post (Horace Andy) has done a lot of singing for massive attack. horace has been in music since the 60's. in the old reggae scene he was huge.

Good stuff. Horace Andy in particular...I'm a Massive Attack fan.

For me, there's a variety of it all...and it comes down mostly to downtempo/triphop & jazz.

My fav artists range from:
• Depeche Mode • Thievery Corporation • Hooverphonic • Massive Attack • Frank Sinatra • Herbie Hancock • John Coltrane

just to name a few...

ditto all of the above

did i mention i spent the day with the guy who mastered kid a and ok computer?? Not quite as impressive as the day I slept with Kylie Minogue tho...

Back on topic, the icelandic scene is so cool, sigur ros are awesome, björk is also a real favourite of mine

All time emotive song has to be jeff buckley's cover of "hallelujah" - I have no idea what the song's actually about, and the lyrics are a little off the wall, but man that guy can sing. Also, the tone on that guitar is something else, beautiful beautiful song.

As far as words, country music and bluegrass moves me pretty well, and has driven me to tears before. But I also like metal, rap, electronica, classical, and religious music (particulary that in Latin).

I appreciate it ALL and Listen to MOST. Music is a great gift.

I'm all over the place. Within a day I'll go from Jazz(old/comtemp) to Acid Jazz/Trip Hop to R&B to HipHop/Rap to Deep House to Various Acoustic sets to Classic Rock to Alternative Rock. I just go with my mood. Gotta love music. Thank GOD for my 40gig iPod. It's my Harp.
