My brother jokes that I'm a schizophrenic music lover because I listen to so many types of music. How about you?

Hello freedomg, I really love smooth jazz! It's just so calming and helps me to really relax and just enjoy life! I also listen to different types of contemporary gospel. Really I like a lot of different type of music though - I like the really old school R & B - like Whitney Houston back in the day... you know the music where it was not explicit and all nasty verbage - but just truly romantic love songs.

Yeah I love a lot of the older ones that got their point across with out having to use all of the nasty words. I love Peggy Lee's "Fever"

I am a music major and I tend to judge songs on their individual merit, not their genre. It is like comparing apples to oranges. I love everything from Classical, Alternative, Funk, R&B, Punk, Jazz, and yes, God forbid, some Country. I think it is healthy to diversify.

Thank you for your reply. Rap is deffinatly one that I would consider an acquired taste. I personally can only listen to it when I'm in the right mood, but do have a few favorites.

I am definitely the same way with music! If you were to look at my i-tunes library or my cd collection you would think I had multiple personalities. Actually, sometimes I think I do. LOL The only kind I have never liked is rap. Other than that I am a hardcore music lover who one minute might be listening to punk, then country, then pop, etc.. I do have my favorites, but for the most part I just love music so much. I used to not tell people this because some people are so judgemental, I mean, like for example; when I was 13 I got really into Marilyn Manson, and other music like that.. but around the same time is also when I fell hard for Hanson! LOL That is something that not many people are going to admit, but I am to the point where I just like what I like, and what other people think, well, that is their problem.

Well then I guess I am also a schizophrenic music lover too. We should start some sort of club or something. I listen to any kind of music and I just love music. My main things are Hip Hop, Rock and Pop. But I listen to everything, country, alternative, spanish music. But I think it's cool to have so many taste in music like that.
