What do you listen to? This is a question I often ask people on gmail chat when I'm bored and I want new music. You know, something to dislodge that song I've had stuck in my head for the past... oh, eon or so? Yeees. Anyhow, people being lovely as they are, oblige me, and so now I have a couple less then twenty playlists from Islanders, with tastes ranging across the board. I've got Black Sabbath, I've got Bollywood, Gilbert and Sullivan and Daft Punk and Disney-songs and Miss Saigon and Michael Jackson and Pachelbel Canon in D. I find this to be epically awesome.

So. I ask you all, forum-lurkers: What you listen to? Tell me, send me YouTube links, take a look at pieces of other people's minds on the playlists I've already got. I love music and I want to listen to it all. And who knows,maybe you'll find a new favorite artist, maybe someone shares your taste in music and a new friendship is born, maybe you'll find something to get that godawful pop song out of your head. I think sharing of music can only lead to good things. Here's hoping you'll all agree.

Other than that. I rarely listen to any music.

It's the best feelgood song evereverever!
I even listen to it when I am not on Island. I clean, and do chores to this song.

I must be tired because there's no way I should be finding this as funny as I am.

The music I listen to is like this. Or maybe like this.

No, Matthew.
You're finding it funny, because it's probably one of the funniest things out there.

Also, you're learning a lesson through it. That if you touch the sun, you will get kickass sunglasses, and guitar!

I listen to Last.fm a lot nowadays. Artist stations - mostly Cake or Telefon Tel Aviv. There's some music here and there in my youtube uploads and favorites... http://www.youtube.com/babehuth

Telefon Tel Aviv really is fantastic. I keep a copy of their live remix of Stolen Moments up on my webhost just to link to people who like third stream and electronic music. http://www.alexhuth.com/music/stolen_moments_airiemix.mp3

I listen to a fair bit of music from independent artists, signed and unsigned, who participate in SongFight! or similar online music communities. There's a lot of utter shite but also a lot of really good stuff if you don't mind low-fidelity recordings.

My CD collection consists of mostly jazz, plus a ton of Zappa and TMBG, with some Pink Floyd and Queen to round out the set. Unfortunately I'm unable to link you to that.

Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? All you get is one trick: rational thinking. But when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, the sky's the limit.

Lions are awesome.

I listen to some different things. Holst (Jupiter is the best), Mike Enfield (Music of the Spheres), Howard Shore (the best), the music for Battle for Wesnoth (it does have some pretty good game music).

I haven't listened to this Playlist in a year, because I've got no sound on the computer.
However, people seem to like it, so it might help:
http://www.playlist.com/playlist/17897520139

Apparently the site's been deleting songs off. It used to have 147 songs.
Now it has like...half.

Did anyone else expect an old man, a maid, or a group of kids and a dog to start singing when they clicked this?

Fine, fine. I'll list some of mine.

Beside the classics from Disney like Be Prepared and such, I listen to the more comedic styling of Weird Al Insane Ian*, Brentalfloss and many people on this website.

*Remove Ian's hat and that looks exactly like me


I make the many models of a mutant individual. To make them I use vegetables, animals, and minerals. From robot bugs to zombie bears to many singing barnacles.

*shrugs*
No sound and almost no video whatsoever. Used to have it, though.
You can't begin to believe how badly I miss it. 8|

Sometimes I get lucky and can petsit at another house with a comp that has sound and video, so I'm happy enough for that.

Yes! I know!
I'm happy to have shared the love, I'll come up with some real music later. That is, if you don't use MAC, because GrooveShark doesn't work on most MACs....

It's the price you have to pay for not having a pile of crap.

Cripes. I tend to listen to one thing repeatedly until it bores me, then move on. Most recently:
Doctor Steel, My Life With The Thrill Kill cult, Gorillaz, Complete History Of The Soviet Union, Arranged To The Melody Of Tetris, The Beatles, and anything by Hideki Naganuma, Max Raabe's covers
Older interests include Cake, Yoko Kanno, Bloodhound Gang, Bound Together, Daft Punk, They Might Be Giants, and Jonathan Coulton. I'm sure there are others, but this url list thing is boring to write. Plus I'm listing duplicates of others', but hey, more selections of their work. Wink
