Various styles for various reasons. The main reason though is because I "connect" with it, if that makes sense. I like music that puts me there.

I listen to so much different music that I don't really feel like I belong to any specific camp. I usually listen to various incarnations of rock and metal, but I might play country, jazz or blues, so ..

I think for this reason, I hate lists. I have trouble defining what my all-time favourites are, but I know what I like right now.

These days, it's mostly various prog bands for me. Gong, Caravan, King Crimson, Gentle Giant, Emerson, Lake & Palmer and so on ..


My favourite way of enjoying music is along with some beers and whisky. Getting drunk and listening to music is just awesome sometimes. If noone else is around, I'll sing along and play my imaginary instruments.

(Not that I get drunk on my own very often.)

Having a few beers and putting some music on is fantastic. I don't sing or anything but it's a huge stress reliever. As for what i listen to : my first love was Metal and I still listen to a lot but I like pretty much anything and everything from brutal grindcore to ibiza chillout.

I listen to music because I love to play it, I love to discover new music and experience new sounds. It just generally interests me.

I usually listen to a variety of everything, but most of it has alot of experimental influences. The simplest way to put it, take a genre and put the word 'experimental' or 'noise' in front of it, and its a genre I mostly likely listen to.

I love music for a few reasons really. As Jackhammer said, kicking back with some bevvies and blasting out a few albums is a very enjoyable thing to do. I love listening to the more lyrically meaty and/or gentle stuff like Leonard Cohen, Elvis Costello, Nick Cave, Neil Young etc with a cuppa coffee and a few cigarettes at hand. Escapism comes into the equation as well. Collecting it makes for a worthwhile hobby too. Inspiration as well, and probably a few more reasons I can't think of at the moment.

Basically the same as what the Unfan said. I like music that transports me in some way. I listen to a lot of different styles but tend to go through little cycles of what I'm currently listening to. This week I've been listening to a lot of hip-hop; last week it was a lot of slow, dirge-like metal; before that it was bebop.

I'm pretty picky about my music. If the music is good, I will listen and keep on listening. If it's bad, I stop listening for the rest of the night. Usually it consists of hip-hop, a little rap and country.

I generally like heavy music, as I find it more entertaining, but I listen to a lot of stuff.
