ok..probably showing my age..(.but I really do like all kinds of music...from Rap to Classical. ) The latest additions to our humongous CD library are....Bareknaked Ladies EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE and Anne Murray WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD (this one is fun...old inspirational songs like Peace in the Valley..Softly and Tenderly...Lean on Me...Let it Be) I got up early and listened to both here on my PC.....let me know if any of you have heard them.
Jackie, Matthew has a few of Barenaked Ladies he listen to them all the time I have never listen only what I can hear threw his walls, LOL I guess Ill let him listen to them in the living room today so I can hear them. Becky
I love Barenaked Ladies, too... like you, I love all music, depending upon my mood... my CD player is such a mix... right now I have Avril Lavigne, Chicago soundtrack, Shrek soundtrack, Simon & Garfunkle, and Cheryl Crowe in there.
My newest craze is country.... I always kind of liked it anyways, but at work the only channel I could get to come in was a counry one... and I spent the rest of the day getting misty eyed over the songs !! LOL So now country is usually on my radio because th only country CD's I have are Shania !
One of the reasons I love American Idol so much, is that they do such a broad range of music and I truly love all music... even some Metal !! My kids laugh at me & wonder how I can know so many songs ! I tell them becasue I am so old !

Jackie - I love BNL - they definitely lift my mood whenever I listen to them. I love pretty much all types of music too...I have a little bit of everything in my colllection but Anne Murray is where I draw the line (kidding!!)
Allisa - I love the Shrek soundtrack too...but I really really love the Shrek II soundtrack. There's a song on there by Tom Waits, who ranks in my top 3 of all time favorite singers. My DH loves country...I like some of it but not all. We have been to a few concerts...I have to say I love the Judds. Once we saw them in concert (the reunion tour?) I fell in love w/ them.
I have to say the only type of music I really don't dig is current pop stuff...and I'll pretty much listen to anything if I like it, LOL!! One of my current passions is African music...Youssou N'Dour, Angelique Kudjo -- I think it's all so amazing, very beautiful and energetic. And I always have some blues lying around, either in the CD player or the car. We have a great station here - wfuv - it's actually a "professional" college station - and it's the only station I listen to...they play folk, Americana, blues, standards like Simon & Garfunkle, the Beatles, John Hyatt, BB King, Tom Waits - it's like carrying my entire CD collection around, LOL!
gee, can you tell music is really important to me? I'll shut up now :-) laurie
I am worried about my music "growth" with Emily not here. Music is her "LIFE". No kidding...all she needs is the first two notes of almost anything and she can tell you the song...artist...and CD name!!!!!
Her interest in a certain type of music borders on obsession.....
It began years ago with NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK....we had posters of Danny? everywhere we looked...and she bought and bought every form of CD with them on it even if it had the same songs.
From there she moved to BILLY RAY CYRUS and into her country phase....never missing a single CMT award show for years...we even saw Billy Ray in concert at the Texas State Fair (blech)....and owned a Billy Ray crotch clock!!!!!
Then it was THE MAVERICKS where she obsessed on Raoul Malo...?
Then ...not NSYNC...but their rivals....oh my how could I forget their name....brain farts this morning I guess...anyhow you will know..(oh yes...Backstreet Boys)......and she had her ENTIRE bedroom walls done in their pics from fan magazines....I posted the bizarre pic here of all that...LOL.....
Her latest craze has been the 80s and Classic Rock....and it seems so weird to get into the car now and being able to turn on our NPR station with no protests!.....
She draws the line at Mozart, however!!!!
I can listen to anything if it appeals to me.....and I DO love Mozart!
