Hey folks,

I wonder, is there anyone here who listens to the music of any other styles than synth-pop/electronic??

Cheers,
Adelka

I love all kinds. Very big Jazz fan, Sinatra, Dianna Krall
But synth-pop/ Electronic is just so much fun.

funny, i don't really like synth music. Yello is rather an exception. My favourites are some Russian punk groups, and also i collect songs from Soviet cartoons/films for children. Among foreign artists my favourites are Loreena Mackennitt, Jean-Marc Zelwer, Vangelis, The Korgis, Army of Lovers, and Robbie Williams.

I'm also a big fan of Jazz, Brazilian and Indian (classic or electronic).

I have a large collection of "classical" CDs, including (in no particular order) Vivaldi, Schubert, Bruckner, Shostakovich, Vaughan Williams, Nigel Westlake (an Australian composer, probably best known for his music for 'Babe' (the film with the pig in it)). I think that counts as non-synth-pop/electronic! :)

I know it's sad... My parents are classical musicians and I don't have much classical at all. Maybe the classical music made me rebel and that's why I'm so in to electronic music? Don't know... I still love classical but dont buy it much. Except some strange ones like Lasus. I generally like the Baroque styles.

rocking songs but a couple of slower corkers also.Their best for 20 years.

I listen to world music, that is anything from tibetan mouthmusic, to Reggae, the original full backup band with horns, and leslie speaker on the mighty whorlitzer (very little of the hip-hoprap-reggae), Steel drum, (there is some incredable recordings of "classical" music performed by Steel drum orchestras!, Blues,, folk-back to the world thing as it is mostly folk music to begin with, such as the Latvian woman's chior, Latin and Afro-cuban, Celtic, and the fusions of the styles as the global nusic community shrinks.Neat to see that a Canadian singer (Loreena McKennit) maid it onto the postings!, .....

I have to admit, that I am stuck in the 80's wave-music.
Depeche Mode, Art of Noise, DAF, Frankie goes, Sisters of Mercy,
and also Falco, to name some..

But I also like the trip-hop, trance, ambient, club side
(Tricky, Massive Attack, Pusinger, Kruder & Dormeister, Apollo 440. Propellerheads)

There are always some songs I like from other genres that stand above
any conventions. I think Loreena McKennitt's "The mummers dance"
or Johannes Brahms Requiem OP45 are outstanding works I do like too.

I am the keyboarder of a gothic-wave band, and I always try to put
the influences into our songs. But sometimes I am overruled, well thats business...

Ciao,

Georg

I played clarinet in band growing up, which introduced me to classical which I like - except harpsicord. And most operas I never learned to appreciate either. I also had subscribed to BBC Music Magazine for a couple of years which contained interactive music CDs illustrating whatever was the theme of that month's mag.
My Ex introduced me to reggae, south african, and world music in general. So obviously I couldn't stand it for a while, but am coming back around.
Lately I've been listening to hip hop.
I'm not too crazy about country, and I'm a horrible two-stepper, even tho I lived most of my life here in the Capitol of Texas. I used to hate Willie Nelson, but now I don't mind... I do like rockabilly. If you've seen Kill Bill volume I, the 5, 6, 7, 8's are very cool!
I am "stuck" in the 80's too - not the top 40's but stuff like Art of Noise.

Highly recommend it!

Always got my favorite artist No. 1 - "WEIRD AL" YANKOVIC!!!

He and YELLO folks has much in common, for example - weird and crazy videos! :D
-and I still think that YELLO videos are much of a comedy/absurd shticks.

Adelka, Army Of Lovers are one of my FAVORITES!!! I cannot believe that there's someone listening to the same!

Absolutely LOVE Kill Bill.

Hey, gotta listening to all sorts of music, here are few of my favorites: Annie Lennox, Art Of Noise, Enya, Rolling Stones, America's Polka King Frankie Yankovic, The Residents (yeah, THOSE guys!), Fifth Element Soundtrack by Eric Serra... well, lots of music, but comedy music always been my penchant. And Boris and Dieter perfectly fit that category, methinks.

SEVA.

I'm stuck in the electronic area my self. I never related to rock. I love Jazz though... Old school style. Brazilian and world music gets my senses flowing also.
