Cant sleep again because of a long nap today. Something amaze me while posting response in here. I found that tracks in my playlist are from 80's(10%), 90's(75%), 2000(10%), unknown (5%). I am so 90's I do listen to new tracks but only download some of them. I find myself still addicted to 80's to 90's music where they brought touching and meaningful lyrics along with nice and melodious music. I don't say that 2000' songs is not good, many of them are as good as 90', but for me 90' song is everlasting. Well it's my personal taste, what about you?

Hahaha I can say its similar to my playlist, most of the songs are the 90's song. Its because im influenced by my ex, lol because of the age gap between him and i so i get used to listen to 80's-90's music. I was a little girl when he was a highschool student, so when i dated him few years ago his playlist was full of 90's song and i enjoyed it, i still listening to the old playlist until now.

Whitney houston: when you believe, could i have this kiss forever. Mariah carey: my all, hero. Celine dion: my heart will go on, its hard to say goodbye. Tony braxton: unbreak my heart, spanish guitar. Bryan adam, phil collins, michael bolton, stings. And my favorite bands: nirvana, metalicca, scorpions, silverchair, dream theater, alice in chains (old formation with laney as the lead vocal).

If I am not wrong the singer name is K.K?

Hello mrswhitfield I think we have the same taste..:) It's true that music in 90's are more meaningful for me. It doesn't mean that I don't listen to 2000 music but I appreciate more the 90's music. I love listening melodious music while taking a nap or before going to bed. I also feel relax and very refreshing while listening to my favorite music. Thanks for sharing..:)

That's interesting! I'm quite "counter-cultural" (as my mother calls it) myself, although I go a bit further back, with most of the music you could attribute an actual decade to being either from the 1980's or long before (as an amateur musicologist, the evolution fascinates me). I am stuck in the 1990's, especially the early to mid 1990's and partly the late 1980's when it comes to country music because that is what I grew up listening to. I do not like the direction country music has gone since then and every time I hear the name of one of the current artists and the "country" label in the same sentence, I cringe. They say country music is changing, but I believe firmly that there are certain elements that must stay constant in order for the music to be true country. To be dumped into the genre because your music contains a fiddle way in the background that only the most intent of listeners will even acknowledge is not country! I hold pretty much every genre to the same standard. Generally, I do not like mainstream pop in the least unless it is no longer mainstream. I think all the hype surrounding it is an instant turn off (plus the fact that pop just seems to lack any kind of soul or dept these days) but I am really not all that naturally drawn to it. For pop, 80's seems to be the cut-off point. I love everything that was released in or before the 80's but not after, with a handful of exceptions. I am very big on dark/gothic stuff (gothic metal, gothic rock, etc.) and anything with a symphonic flair from Meat Loaf to Nightwish. I also love new age/world music, classic rock, patriotic music, classical, blues, R&B, folk, and because I am a New Orleans girl, jazz. Since my ancestry is German and my German ancestors were very musical people, I am open to anything considered "German music," and that is a big research interest for me as well. Any artist who is current but outside of the mainstream will probably find at least a few songs on my favorites list as well. To answer your question, though, which it seems was about decades, I am quite counter-cultural, like you said. I hardly even know the names of any of the current mainstream artists and the ones that I do know, I only know because you can hardly go anywhere without seeing their names and pictures; I could not name a single song by any of them.
