Your main music type and interests?.

Some time ago, I posted in Speakers Corner about female singers, and that posting brought quite a number of interesting responses.

So here's another. Do you follow a particular type of music or a particular artist.

I have a quite a large varied and most types of music cd collection, adding more every week. Over the past year or so, I have sourced more 'unknowns' or local and perhaps tribal music, from say North American Indian, Sami, Moken, Mongal or genuine 'roots' music and the like. In fact something or someone with perhaps a quirky overtone to its possible enjoyment or consideration?.

Do you follow this possible 'quirky' trend, or just stick with the chart toppers?.

If you follow the firmer, what can you suggest?.

I like listening to the theme tunes / songs of 'long ago' TV programmes that I used to watch back in the 60's & 70's; One of my favourites was the music that accompanied " The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe. "

Also, I used to tune into the late Charlie Gillett's World Music Programme on the BBC World Service [it was on about 4.am in the morning]. He played music which he liked from all over the world ... and was like a breathe of fresh air!

Gregorian chant to about 1850 will do nicely. Thank you.

HB - There is actually 'Real World' or 'Rough Guide' series, that you might find interesting regarding World music.

wiz-king, How about Clannad, Celtic or similar in later versions?.

Never look back is my music motto. I dislike radio stations playing 60's/70's/80's stuff, although my wife seems to listen to little else.

I suppose the rock end of folk-rock is my thing, say Mumford & Sons, Noah & The Whale. Currently playing The Staves more than anything else plus Nick Cave's new CD. He was also best live act at Glastonbury if you can tolerate his language.

Spotify (the £4.99 per month version) gives me all the new music that I need without the adverts.

Quizman, odd you should mention Nick Cave, I was looking for a link to post earlier but gave up on the basis that few would have heard of him.

Being nearly 60 my tastes are varied. From some classical through heavy metal and Motown but at the moment, or rather for the past few years I have been into Trance or latterly Hardstyle, which is what I predominantly have on my ipod.

I've always thought of myself as a rocker and prefer that sort of stuff with prominent bass. I left school to glam rock, moved into punk and new wave and liked the resurgence of rock from the '90s onwards.

However when I turned 50 I took it into my mind to learn a rock instrument and started taking bass lessons (mid life crisis and all that), I found that '70s funk that I wouldn't admit to liking at the time is right up my street!

Check out the funky cool '70s bass rhythms that this groovy rock chic is playing on bass. No apologies for the sexist '70s speak... if you watch to the end the smile will tell you why:)
