Showing my age I guess but I'm an 80's guy.
There's heaps of stuff from that decade that I love.

That was the end of a group called Split Enz, a brilliant Kiwi group.
Killing Joke
The Smiths
The Cure's early stuff (like Killing an Arab and 10:15 on a Saturday Night)
Simple Minds
The Stranglers
Joy Division/ New Order
Depeche Mode

Recently found a prog - WINMX, if you haven't tried it - GET IT!!!
I have downloaded so much great music, I'm listening to Simple Minds as I type this.

Cheers, Troy.

Now I'm a country gal! I listen to newer country, and I'm a fan various songs by:

Garth Brooks (most songs)
Reba MacEntire (I appreciate her raw vocal talent)
She-Daisy (some songs)
Dixie Chicks (some songs)
Faith Hill (most songs)
and others I can't think of at the moment!

I also appreciate a variety of other music types and groups. Being a singer and a musician myself, I can find talent in a lot of different music. My favorite artist of all time is:

Celine Dion (she's a wonderful person with remarkable vocal strength and skills)

I love hum. I don't listen to them much anymore but I was lucky to see them twice before they broke up. Other than hum I like mainly drum and bass. My current favorite drum and bass producers are Digital and Spirit, Sonic and Silver, Photek, Ice Minus, and Technical Itch.

I live in Chaffee County, Colorado, USA
I listen to a bit of everything. Classical such as Mozart, Brahms, etc.; Celtic: The Chieftains, The Irish Rovers; One tape with Andean flute music I like; Classic rock & earlier stuff: Roy Orbison, The Doors, The Beatles, and several others; Country: Garth Brooks, Charlie Pride, Dixie Chixs, George Strait; Silly songs: The Telephone Man, Mississippi Squirrel, Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer. I listen to it all and if I like it I listen to more

. I don't like listening to the same style of songs/music 'cause after while I've heard the songs so many times they become irratating so I tend to listen to one style for a while then go to another.

Well Schloaty,
Rush is my top band too! I even went from England to see them in New York in Dec 96 to see them specially. Got a back stage pass and met Geddy and Alex! Talk about opportunities!

What do you think of 'vapor trails'?

My music tastes vary although I would probably call myself a cheesy pop person!

I am a huuuuuuge fan of the Eurythmics and also Scandinavia's Ace Of Base. I have every Album and singles that these bands have produced. My rarest is My Eurythmics Picture disc of 'julia' from the the soundtrack for 1984. Took me just 4 years to get hold of!

. I know how to spEk and dalk - I don’t swear at all (honesth ;-]+). I like tons of it different rap (NWA, Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, Ice Cube, icp, kool moe dee, fat boys, too short, many more). The new stuff basically stinks.

George Clinton, Willie Nelson, John Lee hooker, Rob Zombie, Green Day, manowar, eurythimics, ac/dc, atomic fireballs, cheap trick, Queen, Rocky Horror Picture Show sound track, guns-n-roses, poison, Old metallica,quiet roit, tom petty, b-52, john cash, etc, etc...Basically I do not have a favorite.

Yeah Travis, there seesm to be a definite trend for CP people toward heavy metal and hard rock eh?

BigCarnivourKid I enjoy some classic if I'm in the mood.
I did a music scholarship in high school and was force fed classical music for 5 years. Even had to write my own (which I must admit I was terrible at&#33

, play in a band, blah, blah, blah.
I like heavy, darker stuff like Bach.
