I like the old stuff, can't stand much of the new stuff.
Most of the music I listen to goes from the mid 1990s-back to the 1950s. I like Elvis, Pink Floyd, Genesis (and their solo artists), Fleetwood Mac, etc. It's all in my profile actually.
I like music that makes you think, and really feel. Something that involves you. Modern stuff just seems so thin, lacking true depth. And anger. I enjoy some angry music but stuff like heavy metal, rap never appealed to me at all. "In" music doesn't either...hip-hop, techno, club music...not my thing.
Floyd, Genesis, and most of the good stuff of the 1980s and to a lesser degree the 70s. Progressive rock being the best of the 70s stuff. If you don't mind me sharing...around my computer desk, to the left I have a rack of Peter Gabriel CDs, and below that a collection of vinyl with Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Elvis (some original 45s too), Steve Hackett, Phil Collins, etc. Above the computer the entire Genesis catalog in CDs, and on the rack to the right, almost the entire Pink Floyd catalog, the full Phil Collins catalog, with a side rack of singles from all of the above mentioned artists, and below that a rack of concert bootlegs, video footage, VCDs..and below that, OOP videos from the 80s of said artists in concert. (no Phil Collins jokes please, he's one hell of a drummer and musician/vocalist all-around)
So I'm pretty serious about the old music. To me the music is as important as aviation..a part of my life that I'm very proud of.
Just my opinion but I think the music you listen to is a very personal thing...music seems to bypass the filters of the mind and go straight to the heart.
