I need help finding the music genre I like!
« on: September 05, 2014, 11:43:26 pm »
I have no idea what genre I generally like, I have taken quizzes but the quiz usually has a question such as "What is your favorite music genre?" when the purpose of the quiz is to find your favorite music genre.

I like these songs (these are songs that actually made my spine tingle so yeah, I really like them lol):
(these are not arranged in any particular order)

Diggy Diggy Hole (new version):   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytWz0qVvBZ0
Headstrong, by Trapt:                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3J6CyeFUds
We Will Rock You, by Queen:        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGaOlfmX8rQ
Till I Collapse, by Eminem:           https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1xXYeNrW9k
Radioactive, by Imagine Dragons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iO_WxYC34eM

I guess I generally like unity (especially militaristic unity), Hardcore Determination, The aggressive will to go on, someone taking the chance and overcoming huge obstacles.

What I typically stay away from is screaming (death metal), complaining, "Ghetto" (like weed and "pimp n' hoes", "drugs and clothes", etc) Michael Jackson, punk rock, the majority of country, and I only really ever like 1 or 2 songs from an artist.

I like a lot of different music, I have loved music from orchestral, all the way to rap or hip-hop. Yet I can not find a general range of music I would enjoy.

Hmm I don't know if I can help, but I'll try! If you are looking for hip hop/soul you should look into Nujabes, Fashawn, or Kool High those are mostly deep lyrics more like poetry to a beat. If you want alternative you should look up Modest Mouse, Ok Go, or The Fratellis.  If you want chill music or soft beats look for Aus, Cokiyu, or Blazo. And if you want some really gritty rock look up The Growl. It's not everything I know but if you want to ask me about a specific genre feel free!

Faced with a library of LPs in a room dedicated to the collection of what must be thousands, I decided to start going through the family's collection starting at the 1960's and work my way through the various genres each decade. Doing this revealed an amazing amount of music and musicians I've never even heard of. As a guide I also used Wikipedia as it has come in very useful and informative. Example, Barclay James Harvest began their musical career in 1966 and Nirvana two years later in 1968.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUrkEWNYAVM&list=FLwScFoh96k3IRIV4pgEn63A&index=303


And then came King Crimson that same year, notably their best album ever - In the Court of the Crimson King, their splendid track remastered here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqYo-iGZ_gI  introducing McDonald's Mellotron and saxaphones and Robert Fripp's wonderful guitar work.

Or you might like David Bowie's Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust (full album) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Muh1pk7xc2k

Skip a decade to the mid-70's and you'll find The Sex Pistols: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bucVwI0RfEg  (God Save The Queen is deemed highly offensive to British people including myself), but Sid Vicious' pure hate flaring off the screen is something else.

You'll either love or hate Stevie Nicks, and American singer/songwriter joined Mick Fleetwood in 1975, but this which she sung in 1985 is memorable. Terrific vocal range. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJTrqTRSG28&index=309&list=FLwScFoh96k3IRIV4pgEn63A

There again, you might like George Harrison: Full album All Things Must Pass. Listen to it before Google removes it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj4eR_2wYr0  At 46:39 for some reason, Let It Roll makes me tearful.

Then there's Glam Rock, namely Europe. Don't get me going!  O___O
:lol: Big Hair there, hahahaaaa!


Me? Not decided yet, but it doesn't matter which genre right now, 'cos listening has been so exciting so far. Good luck with your adventure, too! :)

Alright here's what I got;
Try Blazblue Kokonoe's theme.
City Life by Redlight King.
Phoenix by Fallout Boy
Fate is in our hands by Lotus Juice.
Clones by Ash

This is probably somehing you won't like, but it's worth a shot.
Show me a sign, Modestep. It's Dubstep Metal.
Through the Fire and Flames by Dragon Force. It's really hardcore metal, like if you see it on Guitar Hero, you will freak out. Warning really long jnstrumental.
Home hy Coheed and Cambriah. It's also kind of hardcore metal.
Sonne by Ramstein, it's hardcore, and Russian.
Take a walk by Passion Pit.
Something tells me you like your rock with a taste of medevil (I probably butchered this word.). I hope you enjoy something from here. If you like what I presented you ask for more, and I'll try to find something from my playlist.

Just like a burn will linger, she crept between my fingers, and to my body she has now become a new disease. A fog to cloud vision, more like an apparition. She made a mess and now abandoned me.
