    Just wondering what the rest of the beings here listen to for music in different situations. I am listing a few, but feel free to add others if you feel so moved.

    Situations:
    Driving to work
    Driving home from work
    Heading to the folks place (parents or in-laws, specify) :eek:
    Relaxing after a long day
    Just hanging around
    Doing an indoor activity (specify ;))
    Being 'creative' (specify media)

    For me, to work: Disturbed or a Metallica cd; from work, System of a Down, Poe, Metallica. Going to family event or for a visit: varies with the event, but typically something with a good beat (Poe, Disturbed, Metallica, System of a Down...). Relaxing: Poe, Garbage and Enya. Just hanging, depends on the weather/mood, either metal, alternative, or a random selection. Being creative: depends on the media, painting (depending on the subject) is either Poe or Enya at present (I use oils on stretched canvas even though I am color blind).

    Next victim, I mean volunteer.. :D

    Country is cool befre around 1994, then it started to go downhill. Anyone who can listen to some old Hank, or Willie, or Emmy Lou, or the Band, (or the Stones on Begars Banquet,) and say that old country sucks, is foolin themselves.

    (PS. check out Flying Buritto Brothers or anything with Grahm Parsons name on it if you diagree.)

    Right on man! What about The Stones on Sticky Fingers. I mean come on, Dead Flowers is a honky tonk CLASSIC!!!

    Country, real country, is just as important and beautiful as well done hip-hop. It's the story of another American minority, the poor white family. More specifically, it evolved from the music that sharecroppers wrote and performed. Hence the percieved "someone shot my dog" aura of it all. In reality, it's some of the most honest music ever written.

    I can understand someone hating the tripe that gets play on CMT, but everyone should try Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and even some Merle Haggard. You might be shocked by what you hear. :)

    W- it seems across the board that we relate.
    on that hand though, we are from fairly similar places. I'd like to hear some other ideas on this topic. For instance, my friends from NJ seem to love the Who.

    I think every one should love their music.

    PS. I went to grade school with Emmy Lou's daughter, and I feel privilagrd to know her and think of her as a friend. Benifits of Nashvegas, I guess.:D

    Mike Oldfield's daughter is at this university. She is an unbelievably attractive young woman. Tried to find a picture of her from the 'Oxford Uncovered' Calendar in which she appeared in 2000 and 2001 but I couldn't find it online

    My normal life (not on vacation :D) on the computer would include listening to Disturbed, Korn, Linkin Park, Trust Company, some Static-X, one song from Eminem, or maybe a few others. I usually listen to some of the much more extreme songs that not even some profane parents can handle. [Actually, I got my mother hooked on Eminem! :eek:]

    For softer musics I listen to Box Car Racer, Incubus, SOAD, Puddle Of Mudd, or Moby. If I really want to listen to soft music I choose BS or Lynyrd Skynyrd.

    When I am not bull!!!!'n off the computer I usually have these songs rockin. When nobody is home in the same house as me I pump up the volume on the more modern rock songs!

    When I am trying to sleep on vacation I pump up my iPod with a variety of songs. :cool:

    you know Incubus's second album

    S. C. I. E. N. C. E.

    was actually pretty hard for them. It was thier hard album. That was before they got really popular....with the Make Yourself album. Before science they were basically very funky...like the peppers etc. Good stuff all round .. i like all thier albums. They have found thier style and nice.


    (editors note: hoobustank is thier cousin band.... on the science album on one jazz song...one of the members of hoobustank is playing the trumpet for them.)

    Incubus isn't too bad...I like the songs from the Morning View CD. In fact all the Incubus songs I hear on FM from those guys are Driven, Nice To Know You (It's quite catchy in the beginning w/surround sound), IWYWH, and Warning. I'm starting to catch on to Warning.

    Hoobustank isn't too bad. I like CITD and Running Away from their CD.

    PS: I have a few others I forgot to mention. I want to get the CD for Adema.

    you should check out the albums of incubus before they became popular. sounds like your listening only to thier mainstream stuff... which is good none the less... but isnt the WHOLE of them. they are a great band ...very versitile. they can be a jazz band also..which they expressed in the science album.


    apex theory ...sounds intresting... i need to get thier cd.

    Can't believe I missed

    Muse and Incubus off my list.

    Morning View and Origin of Symmetry are undoubtedly the best albums of last year! I can't believe I forgot them. Have been listening to Incubus in particular a lot recently. They have some very Faith No More moments, and they're willing to play with hardcore-ish time signature variation, which always scores points with me.

    BUY THE NEW HUNDRED REASONS ALBUM!!!!!!!

    Riding in my car: Moe., Dave Matthews, Jimmy Eat World, Starsailor

    Relaxing: Ellis Marsellis, Faithless, Enya, Dido ( any and all jazz)

    Never heard SCIENCE, but I may buy it soon. I was very impressed by how polished Morning View was - it made a very good album rather than just a collection of songs, something often neglected these days.

    OKComputer, are you in Punchline? I've never heard of them before
