With today being an afternoon game, in lieu of a more standard open thread for the evening hours, I thought we could open up another thread for music discussion. Instead of the free for all that occurred last time, I'll try to provide a little bit more of a structured format, but nothing is out of bounds.
So, here's what I'm going to do. I'll list some of the music that I like (after all of my mood music choices, you probably know it all already) by some loosely classified genres with lots of links to Wikipedia, some sample songs, and ask some leading questions.
Rock and Roll
Led Zeppelin - Sample
The Who - Sample
Jimi Hendrix - Sample
The Beatles - Sample
The Doors - Sample
The Rolling Stones - Sample
Queen - Sample
Talking Heads - Sample
Cream - Sample
Bob Dylan - Sample
Rap - Language warning for all samples
What have you been listening to lately?
Name some artists and/or songs that you like that most people have probably never heard of (Hipster heaven).
What popular music can you not stand?
Is there anything that you really liked when you were younger, but don't like now?
What music would people be surprised to find out that you like?
If this thread takes off, we can do it again with movies, television, literature etc. Comments, suggestions, and criticisms are welcome.
