When i listen to music, nothing else matters
when i listen to music, my mind's no longer scattered

when i play a tune, nothing evil could tempt me
when i play a tune, you couldn't make me feel empty

when a song is sung, you feel at one with your brain
when i sing a song, theres no need to refrain

music's my life, musics my wife
take it from meee, take it frommm the
you'll meet my knife

That's very nice and poetic, but your answer is not really helpful. Could you answer according to the outline described in the first post?

Favourite 3 Genres

Metal, Classic Rock and......okay, I have two favs, but I listen to everything but country.


What attracts me to music

The sound. I really like heavy music so the heavier, the better. Good riffs, good singing, cool music and vocals.





Are you attracted to the same musical qualities now as then?

Somewhat. I have always liked heavy music, no matter what, but, as a teenager, I also liked a lot of hip hop and rap and pop. Now, I still don't mind SOME rap and hip hop but most pop music makes me want to die.

Favourite 3 genres:
Damn that's quite hard to answer as I listen to everything. Probably Metal and its never ending genres Reggae and Electronic music. This way I can encompass lot's of areas of music.

What attracts me to music
Honesty and sincerity although that is really difficult to elaborate upon. Somehow I can just feel if music is forced and only made for the sole intention of making money. This is not to say that I don't like commercial music. Far from it but making albums and always trying something a little different each time appeals a lot to me. I think 95% of musicians could make chart friendly pap if they really wanted too but then I contradict my own opinion in that I like a small number of bands that rarely change their formula and are quite happy to stick with it. However the bands are not always radio friendly in the first place.

I could say the usual cliched waffle about how music calms me or takes me somewhere else but if you are a serious music fan then this is a given really and if it doesn't illicit emotions in you then music is just something to listen to as background noise or something to dance to at the weekend etc

I guess music is a window into how someone feels and thinks and we are all interested what goes on in other peoples minds.

I am beginning to dislike youtube vid posting unless it's for a promotional thread for a band I like and music is personal and what one person adores is not always easily put into words. What I will do is post songs that elements of what attracts me to music. Here goes though.

Melt Banana

I love the raw energy from this track and the production is not overdubbed to oblivion yet despite having a seemingly chaotic sound, it has structure and melody. It is original, intense and buoyant. You can just tell that the band love to play music and enjoy it at the same time.

John Martyn

There may as well be no one in the room so focused is John in the music. He isn't sat there bemoaning life. He is celebrating it yet he is so ensconced in his own world it becomes quietly powerful and utterly believable. There have been thousands of artist who sit there with an acoustic guitar and 95% of them are boring, banal bleeding poets and there is the 5% who would sit and play for hours not giving two craps whether you liked it or not. This is their own release and fulfilment. Honesty and sincerity.

Slayer

Virtually any Metal band in the world can be noisier or heavier than the rest but it takes something special to be so intense yet clear, concise and meticulous. Although it's a cliched choice, this is still probably the finest example of intense Metal recorded that doesn't sound dated in the slightest (it is now 25 years old).

Underworld

I love monotonous Electronic riffs especially if they are not actually a riff but just a device that pulls a song along. It's not intrusive. It's subtle yet hypnotic. It should just exist bubbling under the track but not become the whole track or none of the track. In that I mean that you shouldn't really even notice and instead revel in the whole ambience of the track. This is not a dance track, it's not a by the numbers ambient track. It's fully formed with many aspects that suggests that the artist has an ear for music and many genres. This song is all about mood and appeals to may different moods that I feel.




Are you attracted to the same musical qualities now as then?
I grew up with Reggae and classic British bands but I got 'into' music through Heavy Metal and for a number of years in the mid - late 90's I barely listened to the genre(s) but over the last 10 years I have gone full circle and celebrate the fact that the music that formed who I am still has a resonance for me today.

I still love Reggae as the basslines still grab me today as they did way back then when I didn't understand what they were but knew that they had an earthy, honest and sensual sound to them.

The emotion is sets on the inside...so you kind of feel it in your gut and shoulders and arms and back.

Favourite 3 Genres
Drone and folk resonate the most with me. Folk is a general term, but I refer to the homey feeling of music, as folk music does mean 'music of the people'. Virtually anything that sounds culturally significant and is sort of stripped-down in terms of instrumentation gets my vote. A third would likely be (as a HUGE HUGE blanket statement) classical music. That alone covers so much terrain on its own.

What attracts me to music
Loneliness. I like music that, at some point in its duration, sounds fragile and near empty. Using silence, incorporating solos/solis into the repetoire, playing 'nostalgically', etc. I like loud/heavy music and all, but even the loudest music can serve that same purpose.

Loneliness transcends virtually everything. Representing that emotion somehow, whether it be directly or just through some other angular medium, is basically a necessity to the music I listen to. Even upbeat & optimistic music contains some allusion to it most of the time.

Don't really think any 'links' will help prove these points.

There is change, yes, but I look down upon the me of one year ago more than the me of six years ago. I was so self-righteous and pretentious a year back, and it's much better to look back upon my early adolescence when I was just a nice kid who would listen to nothing but pop-punk and System of a Down on the side. I don't listen to the same styles, but I still get the same awesome feeling when I hear something interesting/that inspires me.

Usually the images it makes me think of, the emotional connection.

Wow!
If I didn't have my music on a daily basis, people would be getting hurt.
I can't imagine not being able to listen while working, driving, and every other moment in the day. Music is all I have left in this world, and that no one can mess with.

I just ... wow .. that was just so different ... I never expected that something like that could exist!!
