Vote for your favorite genre of music

I know we all love classical music here, so the question should actually be more like: What do you like besides classical music?

Forgive me if there are other great genres I forgot to add, All suggestions and criticisms are much appreciated!

Hard to vote vote because to me there's good and bad music in whatever genre I listen to, classical included. Also I tend to have phases... but before I started listening to so much piano music, I have listened to metal, house/neo-soul, jazz, blues, old school rap, some weird stuff that does not really have a name...and in my very young days also punk :)

My only criticism at this point is that you list Bob Dylan as a country artist. Other than that I would say I have always been a fan of the latest and greatest probably more in the alternative genre with Imagine dragons , and 21 Pilots. the other day I listened to an Eminem song that had a gorgeous piano/keyboard playing in the background.  Very 'classical' sounding.  you also did not mention Chuck Berry in the Rock category. But it is all good, you are forgiven.

I feel I have quite a broad music interest, my father had an entire walk in closet full of vinyl albums growing up so I was brought up with music. My parents were hippies in the late 60’s/70’s their massive love for Dylan stays with me,  plus it was the usual Beatles, stones, Janis Joplin then anything from gospel to country, jazz to funk in between.  When my mum remarried after they spilt my step dad was more into prog rock, Bowie, 70’s glam rock etc. On top of that when I did music in school I realised I loved classical music when I started piano lessons at 11. But I also love, soul, Latin, rock and pop and hip hop. To give you an example in the last year I have been to concerts by both MArtha Argerich and the Sugarhill gang ( not together though..that would be a sight to see!) 😂
Things I have noted over the years-
1- people really try to pigeon hole you into ‘what you are into’
2- there can be a huge snobbishness around music ( is this maybe more of a UK thing?) about what  is ‘real music ‘ - hey if it’s got a funky beat and makes me move I’ll listen to it.
3- some have been surprised ( again in Uk maybe?) that I went to a school that wasn’t particularly affluent ..and yet I love Classical music and Opera, ( again think this is more of a class issue in the Uk) I once had someone Telling me how surprised they were that I knew what the Goldberg variations were considering ‘where I was from...’
4-I have a pretty good talent for hearing 1 or 2 beats  from a song and knowing what it is...I have quite a photographic memory for music 1960’s  onwards..😂😂
5- my husband grew up in a house with no music, I find that really odd as even now his parents won’t have music or the radio on much, even driving....we had music on constantly growing up.

I really really love music, I couldn’t live without it. I love how a song or piece can touch your heart, make you cry or instantly take you back to a time or place.  It such a wonderful thing! 😍😍

Also there is a programme on in the UK called Jools Holland, it’s such a great mix of music, he can have up to the moment rap artists, flamenco singers or a music legend on all in the one week. I think his show really celebrates what is great about music, and often has musicians jamming together For a song.  Here was a good one with Amy Winehouse and Paul Weller, whatever her personal struggles were, when she was good She was great. I think you could probably get the show on BBC America, for those not in the UK. I still hear a lot of stuff from people appearing on his show. See link below.  ;D

I thought I'm the only one who loves a broad range of music! haha! that includes Hip-Hop and Classical music, Have you heard of Birdman? His music contains a ton of profanities, it's gangster rap after all, but he's my favorite rap artist.

Do you like Electronical Music? EDM can be repetitive and really uncreative at times, but I really love Skrillex, and Martin Garrix, last but not least, I strongly recommand everyone to listen to a little know EDM producer called "Mirrored Theory", his songs "I dare you", "The Great View", "Bring it back", "Weekend", are all very awesome, but of course these songs aren't perfect, he's after all, a quiet poor musician with very limited tools (I believe so, judging from one of his interviews.)

The only established genre of music I liked in my youth and am still infatuated with at seventy-one is ragtime but I haven't a clue why. I haven't been moved by either classical or jazz for many years, although I was passionate about both as a boy. I suppose it might be because I have been immersed in my own music for so long, but I am just guessing. I would have to answer the poll by saying I dislike classical music because it is the closest option, but that answer isn't quite true. It is more a case of neutrality, of not being stirred at all by it either way.
