I like some newer music, I do, but I don't ever listen to it unless we can't get our cd player to work in the car. When I'm at home I listen to older music, like cds from 5 years ago and a lot of oldies. My favorite bands from back then are collective soul, adema, limp bizkit, smile empty soul, and of course Kurt Cobain. Sometimes Jewel and Alanis Morsette(sp?)And papa roach back before he was cute.lol Does anyone else prefer to listen to this order music? Who do you still listen to?

the music from the70's was the best ever. Not only is that all I listen to...but I have been noticing that the 70's music is what is played publicly most often! Like in resturants, shopping malls, stores etc.

I know. Ever notice how most of the music in movies comes from the 70s too? Especially queen. Their songs are played in tons of movies. They're one of my favorite older bands, along with foreigner.

I listen to a huge variety of music. The best investment I ever got was an ipod. I don't like to listen to a solid cd of one band. Especially if it's a band where a lot of their songs sound the same. With my ipod I was able to take all my old cd's and put my favorite songs onto my ipod plus any new songs that I like. I could separate them on the ipod into different play lists if I wanted so I could listen to all the older stuff or all the newer stuff. I like to just have them all on one playlist and then it shuffles between all my songs. So one minute I might be jamming to an 80's song and the next one that just came out a few months ago.

That's pretty much the same thing I do, except without an ipod. I have all my music on my playstation and I make different playlists. I have some for exerciseing, some for dancing, and so forth. But that's usually how I listen to my music.

I still listen to those songs. That is the time when boy band still rules the music industry. I love listening to Backstreet boys songs and Nsync music. Even Britney Spears music when she was still young.

My favorite is alternative rock but like everything from old 60's rock, latin, folk, classic rock from th 70's, definetely 80's, and current music now. I like a lot of variety as you can tell

Yes, I do. I very much like listening to the oldies. Very enchanting, bringing back all the beautiful memories if the time. I have a collection of CDs of my favorite songs and orchestras. Tennessee Waltz ! That is one of my favorites. Always and any time. The lyric is beautiful and the music is very sweet.

I joke that my favorite genre of music is "good". If I like the way a song sounds, I listen to it. It doesn't matter if it's old or new, if it's a band or artist my friends hate... So, definitely, I still listen to the music I listened to in high school. For me it was Live, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day... Sixpence None the Richer, Five Iron Frenzy, Matchbox 20, Third Eye Blind...Natalie Imbruglia, Meredith Brooks, Alanis Morrisette...Morrissey, The Cure A little bit of everything.

I listen to all kinds of music except country and heavy metal. But as far as I'm concerned with new music, I can't stand hip-hop and modern R&B. I believe that Of Montreal and the Raveonettes are amongst the coolest bands you can hear today. Being a teen of the 80s, I still listen to some of the music of that decade, especially U2 and New Wave bands like Duran Duran and Simple Minds, and I'm still stomping my feet to Rick Astley's sound. That said, Elvis, the Beatles, 50s and 60s music and alternative music are stil my cup of tea.

when i get loney or even work around the house or when im not feeling well i turn on my mucic and it feels great. its nice to listen to the odies because it brings back memories. the oldies will show the memories but it sooths the sole.i was told one day that music gets into yr blood. u know i watched lots of people with and with out music and i find that people who listened to their music their happier than people who doesnt listened to it. itdoesnt matter what type of music u listened to its to eaze the tention or stress that u have in yr life.when u travel in the car ull turn on what u want to listen to. the people who sings or on radio play these to make yr mind a little easier to deal with. alot of people can relate to their music and alot of us old people relate to the oldies and some are good memories and others are not but the best memories are when u can share with lovers,friends ,family or even just yrself to get with the flow.for me the oldies will let me open my true feelings and u can sing as loud and comfortable without people critize that u cant sing.who cares if u cant at least yr having fun and u can get things done.i think everyone in the world at one time or another listens to mudic just to satified yrself and thats the most important thing to do is to please yrself.its every where and prople will always listen to music of all kinds.

I love listening to older music too, since they are much more meaningful and I prefer slow mellow music which is soothing to the ears. I play some of my cds before, and i have some old songs in my music layer too.

Yes, I do. I still listen to music from my teen years. Beside that, I listen to more kind of others too. Sometimes, listen the music from our teen years raises several great memories of our teen age (and bad memories too).

Yes. I still listen to these bands you have mentioned above and sometimes more older than them. It's quite a pleasure that these bands had preserved the original sound of the 90's. I don't have anything against newer music though, but these older types of music has always been a part of your life history and is difficult to just be replaced by some new songs. Nirvana's songs are still hitting the market every now and then even the Beatles. That just means that their music lives forever.

I still today, do listen to the music that I enjoyed when I was a teens some years back. I do not buy and stock them but the radio station in Nigeria do play this music. I dance and shake my body to the music. They make me remember my teen years and they make me feel happy. But when I buy music I do go for the modern records. This is because the modern music has better musical instruments and sound than the old music of the yesteryears. I like old music of bob marley, peter touch, dolly parton, kenny rogers,tina turner,whytney houston, Abba, UB40 etc

The music that you grew up listening to is still the best in my opinion. Although, I still like to listen to really old stuff like Air Supply, Queen, Europe et al. Also I like guitar stuff so listening to Carlos Santana really feels great.

Sorta. A little bit of Linkin Park, not eminem anymore, No more cold play. Really anything. I listen to the radio a lot but nothing too much anymore cause it gets boring. Moderation is great I think. Maybe some breaking benjamin here and there, some slipknot, disturbed, the killers for sure.

I listen to all types of music from various styles and years. I have found really interesting is that a good song will live forever with the use of music mixes older songs are being covered and spliced together. So older songs have a new audience or even with enough of a change the songs get a new life. An excellent example is Over the Rainbow was Judy Garland's signature song but Israel Kamakawiwo?ole created a whole new variation of the song giving it a new life, then it has been covered again and again. So songs never die, they change, the return, so in every generation the song will have a version, and in this way it is possible to listen to the same music over and over without having to listen to music of our youth.

I love all types of music. Don't get me wrong some of the newer singers are just as good as those "back in the day". However, I love listening to older music. Some of acctally most of my favorite songs were popular long before I was born. But, I also enjoy music that came out when I was a kid/teen. If I would sit down and type out every song I've listened to or liked, I'd be sitting here for hours typing away. And, quite frankly I just simply don't have that kind of time. As I hear an oldie from my younger days it reminds me of more singers/artists and the list goes on and on. I don't even atempt to list every song, or artist I've liked anymore. The list is too long.
