    I listen to all the old school music. Remixed of course.

    Kinda surprised when my new flat mate nicked a load off me and is thinking about using them in some sets.

    I kind of like Evanescence.

    I like some Lost Prophets songs.

    I think Marilyn Manson rocks.

    I like Avril Lavigne.

    Michael Jackson was a well good singer.

    I liked the latest Christina Aguilera album too! The backings remind me somewhat of Bristol dub circa early 90's...and she is a very good singer.

    Oh, and early prodigy stuff, cheesy as it is, does it for me.

    But there's nothing wrong with liking what you like.

    I'm usually a techno/industrial head but i'll listen to anything if it's decent...including reggae and dub (lots of), classical, jazz, funk, rock, d'n'b, cheesy hard trance, ragga jungle...

    I've got plenty that I should probably be embarrassed about, mostly because I like everything, ever, with very few exceptions (not a fan of most country music and I usually don't like new pop stuff other than the catchy ones that get stuck in my head for days)

    Looking through the CDs, a few that I probably should be embarrassed about (but I'm not, because they rule :D )

    Alan Parsons Project
    Barry White
    Christina Aguilera (Its my other halfs, but I don't dislike it :p)
    Chicago
    Dido
    Elvis (he's the king, ok?)
    Eurythmics
    Madonna (But I do despise her newer music)
    Maroon 5
    Natasha Bedingfield
    Steely Dan
    TLC

    Thats a small selection, then theres a few opera CDs that nobody will have ever heard of (but everyone hates opera, right?) and some like "Greatest Hits of <insert number between 88 and 96 here> ", on which every track on them is genuinely terrible, but I was yound and stupid

    Ah, "Men without Hats - Safety Dance" :D Top Stuff!

    My preference is for music that entertains me, makes me happy.

    So I listen to stuff like Prog Rock, Motown, Soul, Metal, almost anything from 1920s to present,
    and of course "Weird Al" Yankovic for laughs. :hip:

    "Guilty Pleasures"?
    I suppose that would be what I call "Genre shift" music - Cover versions & tributes in a different musical style.
    eg the works of Hayseed Dixie
    Assorted bluegrass tributes to Metallica/Pink Floyd/Moody Blues, etc
    & a Metal tribute to ABBA! :rock: (Google for "Heavy ABBA" :thumb: )


    <Rant>
    None of those whiny, plaintive, nearly suicidal ballads that you get from Radiohead, Coldplay, etc. (Had enough of that from The Smiths!)
    RnB/hippity hop DOES NOT qualify as music in my book - someone who uses a turntable is a DJ not a musician! :wallbash:
    </Rant>

    Steely Dan is nothing to be ashamed of (i have all the albums on LP) and Elvis!! his early early stuff was fantastic. If you have a deck, look out for an LP (not to hand so can't remember the name ATM) which is him in a studio before he had a contract and a couple of musicians jamming pretty much. Truly amazing stuff.

    Oh, I'm not ashamed of any of the music I've got. Though I suspect many people around here would cringe at a great deal of it ;)

    Why do you say that?

    Listen to the work of Portishead. Some of the scratching in that is simply amazing. I have even better examples but I can't remember them right now.

    Decks are an instrument. Some people use them to play other people's music, and some make their own. Mixing with dubplates is no different to using a sampler. It's still creating music, just in a different way.

    I've got some J-pop that might get some strange looks from most people (and by might, I mean without a doubt). But I like it, so I honestly don't give a crap what other people think.

    I've been (willingly) to see Britney Spears play live. For reasons akin to dom's...obviously :p

    Recently, Regina Spektor has earned a place in my heart.

    Not that I really care what people think of that... :hip:
