As to my listening, I haven't listened to music for about ten years. But I did have a lot of medeaval stuff.

Corvus Corax, In extremo, Blackmores night etc. Also Cappercaille, and similar from Scandinavia/Finland.

Along with the obvious Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath etc.

My list doesn't sound nearly so cool

I love ani Difranco and Indigo girls as well as Melissa Ferrick (Hello my name is Willow and I like angry lesbian music)

But I also love political Rap/hiphop (I have always had a soft spot for public enemy and I love to dance), relaxed folky stuff (think Jack Johnson), classic rock, country, some metal and I listen to classical every day.

So you might describe my tastes as *ahem* eclectic? If its new I will try it at least three times. So hopefully I cafind some of these bands.

And for other people who like new music go to www.pandora.com, I am addicted, you type in your favourite artist and they play other music with similar qualities they think you will like, it really is an awesome site.

I admit it... Yes, I admit it. I love 80's one hit wonders. I love early 90's music, like Marky Mark's "Good Vibrations". I, a 26 year old woman, still listen to Disney music, and I don't have kids. I basically have a VERY eclectic taste when it comes to music. I listen, to whatever happened to catch my ear, and I'll listen to it forever. I do have a few favourites though.

Faye Wong's "Eyes on You"(I think it was called) from Final Fantasy VIII.
Sukiyaki's "4 P.M."
Jade from Sweetbox "1000 words"
Hikaru Utada's "Sancuary" & "Simple & Clean", and almost any other song of hers, in Japanese or English

A recently found again favourite is from the movie Anastaia "Viaje Tiempo Atras", which is a spanish song and translates roughly as Journey to the past, I believe.

Most of the music I listen to is either in japanese, or from a broadway show. Mostly from broadway shows though. Right now my favorite CDs are:

The Frogs
Hairspray
Sweeney Todd
Urinetown
Floyd Collins
Spamalot

If I ever get a chance to breathe, I'm going to go buy the Wicked soundtrack. As for Japanese music I listen to, most of the time it is:

Sera Myu
Puffy AmiYumi
Yoko Ishida
Utada Hikaru

There's also that japanese version of Hakuna Matata that I listen to when I'm in a weird mood. I guess it combines both genres......

Yes, I know that I'm completly strange. Oh well. What can you do? ;)
Hey look... I got a new icon....

So what if its Sailor Moon again? *shifty eyes*

I heard the neatest paper this week CHL, a scholar in the states was tracking the lyrical development of NIN and comparing it to the psalms in the Bible and they are very similar apparently.

Anyway, he almost got lynched in the southern US for this paper and is now trying to find a job in Canada because he plans to write more like this. It was pretty fascinating!

Lunaria, You're back.

Woo hoo, my fellow anime fan has returned.

What other Japanese stuff do you listen to? Is Puffy AmiYumi very much like Hikaru Utada? I've listened to some of their stuff from the TV show (a show I'm not all that impressed with to tell the truth), and I'm not fond of it. But I know the truth, that what they deem "suitable" for us from other languages is generally a far cry from what we like!

Let me know. Also, Koda Kumi, is I think her name (I'll double check when I get home), is another great star. As well as the boy band from about 2 years back. They had a hit "Every Flower" I think it translated to, about how every woman is like a flower, and you should treat each like they are the Only One. Now that I think of it, it could be called Only One.

It does not surprise me, but that's pretty neat! He has some pretty phenomenal stuff out there, along with drug-induced utter cr**, and I know that the bible has been a continual source of, let's say, "inspiration" for some of his work, more evident in his less-talented former "apprentice and die-hard fan" Marilyn Manson. (Apprentice not meant literally)

Willow, that's pretty interesting about the scholar drawing comparisons between NIN and the bible. Just saw them live a couple months ago and they were SOOOO good. Everyone must see them live at least once, it's an amazing experience. The only dissapointment was that he shaved his head so he doesn't look nearly as hot as he used to. :cry:
