Well...both are good kids, but our taste in music is 180 degrees apart most of the time. We do agree that Michelle Branch and Avril Lavigne rock! But, hey I'am listening to good ol Hootie and the Blowfish right now.<br><br>
okay, i love many types of music. for the past few years, i have pretty much settled on the blues (BB King), but i still love rap music. it was all that played in the town where i grew up in kansas (an army town -- catering to the soldiers -- lotsa hip hop-type music back in the 80's). i wasn't introduced to other kinds of music until college. i left for college with eazy-e, nwa, ice cube, too short and other rap music (i think i had one non rap CD -- INXS)...didn't take long to get into the other stuff...and then nirvana kicked off a new sound that i enjoyed in the early 90's...saw pearl jam just before they hit it big and loved that, too. ihave varied tastes.<br><br>i tend to listen to the radio in iTunes...typically go with 80's music; alt/modern rock; urban; blues; electronica; raggae/island...probably in that order. i won't do hard rock and country. i also enjoy NPR (but that's not music).<br><br>anyway, my point is that i think rap music derserves a little more credit. people criticized it early on for this and that, but it just kept growing and growing and may be one of the biggest selling types of music around...it's here to stay. i realize that some people have a hard time recognizing it as music because the artists don't tend to use their own bands and they tend not to sing (duh...the title is rap), but the music sure is appreciated by many people these days.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
heh...i am not a marilyn manson fan, but i don't hate his music either. when i lived in lawrence (kansas) a few years back...marilyn manson was scheduled to kick off a world tour. the night before it was to begin, he decided to do a practice show in lawrence at a small venue. i ended up with two tickets and went. i walked away from that show thinking he was just a great entertainer...i enjoyed it (and i don't buy his music).<br><br>good list. i could do without some of the harder rock, but i love the black crowes, smashing pumpkins, chili peppers, u2, weezer, and you had a few more things that a person might find in my collection. thanks for sharing.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
