    I listen to pretty much anything from classical to heavy metal (except for all country and about 95% of rap). I have been listening to Disturbed often (good to drive to), but I do favor Metallica and Rob Zombie. RHCP and Smashing Pumpkins are also up there on the listen list, as is Poe (Haunted cd).

    Re: music? favorite song?

    ok, i'll give you BIG points for choosing george gershwin--he was one of the true pioneers of jazz( what it was called then...) which is a distinctly american music. however, his is not considered classical music. don't get me wrong, you have excellent taste but there is a difference. if you like gershwin, you'll probably like bach and mozart-two equally melodic classical composers. if you can find them, the old recordings of gershwin played by oscar levant are amazing. he was also in the movie musical" an american in paris" which is all gershwin.

    as for a favorite song of mine, there are too many to list. so here's a quick list of composers: bach, mozart, morricone, telemann, hoagy carmicheal, irving berlin, gershwin, lennon/mccartney, elvis costello, phillip glass, elton john/taupin,miles davis, herbie hancock, monk, randy newman, count basie, scott joplin, aimee mann......and so on. :)

    I have a crazy eclectic iTunes library. Everything from U2 (I think I've mentioned in other threads that Bono is the only man in the world I would go hetero for) to Rancid to Dixie Chicks to Tibetan chants. Right now I'm really stuck on this song "Fine Day for Sailing" by Go Sailor. Google the lyrics and you'll get an idea of why I've been rather bitter lately... :)

    I don't have any one favorite song. Since we got an XM Satellite Radio, though, I've been listening to all sorts of stuff I didn't even know exsited. I highly recommend getting one if you get a chance, it will change the way you listen to music. And no, I don't get a commission. But on average I'll listen to just about everything except county, rap, and heavy metal.

    bono is indeed the man. his political power and awareness along with his stage presence and voice is amazing...

    stuff like u2, but nothing too popular other than that.

    as well as hardcore/punk stuff. indie rock i guess you could say. i don't listen to the radio.

    sense field is one of my favorite bands and they've recently started getting bigger, including some radio play. so that's cool. they've stayed true to themselves an their music whilst getting big. so that's it basically.

    I like a few bands with these songs:
    Here To Stay by Korn
    Control and Blurry by Puddle of Mudd
    Lots of songs by Linkin Park

    But my new favorite is Downfall by Trust Company.

    Basically, all this is Hard Rock. Some of it is profane, but being a semi-mp3 junkie and a profane teenager it suits me just right.

    Any time is a great time for iPod.

    I am a die hard rock fan, who also likes jazz, swing and electronica, oh yeah and indy.

    There is list of people I like here -

    I hate pop & dance (westlife, boyzone I think they need to be strung up and killed etc...) although I do have a Britney song on my comptuer :( I love Rock and Roll, I downloaded because I like the original

    I have attached a picture of my play lists (on my Powerbook)

    Oh, yeah. I forgot about Britney Spears, because I was more focused on the Hard Rock. I have all 45 of her songs on the iPod. I am questioning whether or not I should get her movie.

    Any time is a great time for iPod.

    Seems like we have similar tastes. I don't like country and most rap too. I'll listen to almost anything else.

    My favorite music is Classic Rock:
    Floyd, Zeppelin, Boston, America, CSNY, Hendrix, Cat Stevens, Alan Parsons Project, James Taylor, CCR, Journey, Doors, Elton John, Lynrd Skynrd, Steve Miller Band, Chicago, Moody Blues, etc.

    I'm partial to anything with a well-played guitar, acoustic, classical, or electric.

    I like metal music because it's something to get angry to— especially old Metallica. I LOVE my SW Trilogy Box set, John Williams is great.

    I have many other bands, but I thought I'd just name a few.

    As far as my tastes go, I like just about everything.

    What I do have most in my iTunes library though is Phish and Rush.

    Rush is touring again this summer, and I'm seeing them twice.

    Re: UK TwoStep Garage

    gotta love the diversity. have you ever heard the tape of buddy rich going ballistic on his tour bus? OMG, what a laugh....theres a funny joke about buddy that went around the jazz circles after he died...

    a guy calls buddy's house and asks to speak to buddy. his widow tells the caller " i'm sorry, buddy passed away". this repeats for several days until his widow finally asks the guy" why do you keep calling? i've told you over and over that buddy is DEAD". to which the guy replies" i know, i just like hearing it..."

    buddy wasn't well liked.....but he could PLAY. :)
