Same here, Stormy. I like some of the early rap by Bone Thugs n Harmony, but almost nothing else in that genre. I also dislike the really monotonous type of jazz where they just play the same phrase over and over and over again.

Yeah, ZuZu, I'm not too wild about that either.. Even too much of a good thing can spoil it. My niece was so excited about a particular "Alternative" song. She really wanted me to like it. It sounded to me like an electronic snippet taken from Beethoven that was just repeated over and over again. While I enjoyed the snippet, the tune lacked structure and became monotonous.

On the other hand, it drives my DSO crazy that I like the Black Eyed Peas, "Let's get it started".

there's something in every genre that ends up as being catchy, and we sing them in our head over and over again.

Even Disney tunes!

Can't say I like any of that music, must be I was brought up with classical music such as Opera and the many composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert and so on

I have taught piano students for 30 years. Most of the early lesson books contain all styles of music. In the third or fourth year, they begin to learn from the classical composers.
Last October, an 11th grade student of mine entered a Concerto competition at the local college. She played the first movement of the Mozart Concerto in A major, K. 414, earning a superior rating.

I will start teaching my five year old great-grand-daughter next Tuesday afternoon. Her name is Skyler and she is in kindergarten. I'm excited to get to see her every week.

I went to the hospital a few weeks ago to visit my daughter, who was in ICU.
When I walked in the room, I saw a former student of mine who was her nurse. I frequently see the moms of former students while shopping at Walmart and we stop and visit for sometimes twenty minutes, catching up on where their child is and what they're doing.

I love Celtic. I've found that I can buy any CD by someone whose name begins with "Mc" or "Mac" without even listening to it first and I'm never disappointed. I love the lilting type of Celtic voice, Like Enya's or Loreena McKennitt's, but my absolute favorite is the throatier voice of Dolores Keane.

Have you ever bought every rendition you could find of one song? After hearing Linda Ronstadt sing "Icy Blue Heart," I looked it up on Amazon and bought the CD's of everyone who had sung it. I did the same thing with "The Water Is Wide." Somehow, the people who choose to sing a specific song can all be equally appealing.

We have an Irish fest here in Indy, I started going a few years ago, and was very surprised to find good local talent.
They have three stages so there is a lot of good music and story telling.

I love good Celtic music. Oddly enough, I have none in my possession. I suppose that's because I can usually find a good program on television to get my 'fix'.

Not to mention youtube.com. How did I ever live without youtube? When I think of all the albums I've bought just because I wanted to occasionally listen to one song... Now it's so easy to find that song whenever I want to hear it.
