I'm not sure if I fit into your box. Some of my favorite artists are Schiller (blend of electronic, classical, pop, synth, chill-out and ambient I guess you could say) and Finnebassen (house), but you'll also hear me listening to Industrial Black Metal (yeah, that's a thing) or Dublin Soul. I'm also taken by a lot of music scores, especially ones composed by Hans Zimmer.

Aww, I found out we could only vote once. Hehe, well mine is Alternative/Indie. Coldplay, The Killers, American Authors 🙂

Though I sometimes would consider Taylor Swift a favorite, scratch sometimes .... often times in the car... My fiancee thankfully has not found it as a dealbreaker 😄 😂

I love instrumental too, when I need to focus. I play the piano and a bit of violin (not the best at it obviously -- but I just LOVE how it sounds when played right) so I love instrumental at the right times hehehe!

I would. I mean, find it a dealbreaker. 😂I would buy an extra car, just to avoid listening to it.

I have *all* of his albums. German electronics's just the best. I may or may not have cried when I heard "Ein schöner Tag" live. 

I've met Christopher a couple of times when I was working security in my youth. I actually didn't know who he was, and didn't think much about it back then (we were mostly focused on keeping drunken fans away from the green room area), then a few years later, I was working as cabin crew. I think it was a chill-out version of Ruhe that was playing in the cabin during boarding, and I recognized it so I checked the name of the artist, and sure enough, it was Schiller. Since then, I've been a big fan! 

Ein schöner Tag is beautiful. My favorite has to be Miles and Miles or the older versions of Das Glockenspiel live.

Here's the cabin boarding music - lol

Indian style of music is different so not sure how to categorise it.. But if I were to state a few familiar names, it'd be Linkin Park, Enya, Liz Fraser, Celine Dion, Jose Gonzales, Aurora and my recent favorite Dimash.. I don't know where to categorise these singers either but ya these are my favorites..

Linkin' Park (their old stuff) was good. Used to listen to Enya when I was a kid. Celine Dion has a great voice. Not a big fan of her music though. Same goes for Dimash. I feel it becomes more of a show of how good his voice is (and don't get me wrong, it is really good!). 

I keep forgetting that people actually listen to music from their own country. Must be because I'm from Norway, the coldest fu**ing country on the planet, where every single artist sings about summer with latin vibes pretending we actually enjoy ourselves, when all we do is drink homemade 96% alcohol, going skiing and... singing about summer. :classic_laugh:

Oh, and when we sing about going skiing, we do it in a way so you'd think it's actually about a summer party at Ibiza. This is not a joke. xD

Once we were walking past a loud construction site and my sister said: “Oh look, your favourite band is playing." 

I “only” met Shirley Manson at a festival because I was with someone who had to interview her. They said I could ask her a question and I just babbled some nonsense about how I wanted to grow up to be like her and how fantastic her hair looked in person. She was very nice despite my outburst. I've never met a person "from my playlist" before or after that.

Wow, that’s interesting! I’ve been wanting to find new music to listen to, so I’ll actually try listening to the artists you just mentioned. I enjoyed the video, I like how the beginning part transformed into something bigger and catchy. 🙂

Yeah, unfortunately we can only vote once. If I could I’d vote on most of the genres I put down.

Coldplay and The Killers are my jam! Love them. I’ve never listened to American Authors, but I want to now. Taylor Swift is also a really great artist to listen to, I like her old and new songs. 

Yep, when I need to study or concentrate on something, instrumental is the way to go. It’s cool that you can play the piano, I know how much skill and effort that takes, and even knowing how to play a bit of violin is cool as well. When it comes to instrumental, I really like listening to “Lofi Girl” on YouTube. They produce lofi hip-hop, it’s really calming, in my opinion.

Of course we listen to music from our own country, haha. I knew that Norway can have really cold weather, but I didn’t know that they were that cold. Going skiing sounds hella fun though, I personally love skiing. And honestly, if it really is that cold, then I don’t blame the people for wanting to pretend to enjoy themselves, lol. 

Daaamn, Ibiza though. Beautiful area, just beautiful. 😌

Sounds like an interesting interaction, haha. Either way, at least you got to meet her, and she ended up being very nice too, so that’s a plus. 😄

I been a Hip-Hop head since I was 5 years old, so much so I now dabble in writing rap lyrics as a side hustle here on Fiverr.

 

Your video actually sounded really catchy, so good job!!

And wow, it’s kind of crazy to think about how much you enjoyed hip-hop for all those years, and even decided to make it a side hustle in the end. Gotta say, that sounds really neat, I’m glad that you’re doing something you have enjoyed for so long.

I’ve seen some people post songs from YouTube, so I want to do the same.

https://youtu.be/2urq2v3HprA

I really enjoy this song, and it’s an example of something I listen to. 

That being said, I pretty much listen to everything except country (with an exception of two songs) and most of rap. I guess if I had to pick the top 3 genres I listen to, I’d pick rock, j-pop/pop, and electronic. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My taste is pretty varied, and a little weird tbh, but probably most heavy on the indie pop. 

I keep playlists by the year. So each year as I discover a new song I love, I'll add it to the playlist for that year, and that year's playlist is what I listen to most of the time. When the year starts winding down, I'll start to build next year's, so there is a little overlap sometimes. What's nice about that is if I want to remember how I felt during a certain year, I can pull up that playlist and it takes me back.

I also have special playlists for certain writing projects or certain moods I want to capture.

Here are three of my favorites. These are songs I like so much that I abuse them by listening to them over and over and over. There's a reason I can't work without headphones. I'm sorry, I know I should have only picked one but I love all of these so. darn. much.

Florence + The Machine - Hunger - YouTube

Jacob's Song || Brother Isaiah - YouTube

The Rocket Summer - 200,000 (official) - YouTube

I unashamedly love Taylor Swift, especially right around the Speak Now era. This makes my husband so angry and I Don't Care. 😆 I do love The Killers and Coldplay, too.

I heard that there is a new single coming out soon recorded by all of Taylor Swift's ex boyfriends. It is called, "Maybe you're the fu**ing problem."
