Title: What music do you like!
Post by: Cedric6014 on July 04, 2007, 10:55:45 pm
Here’s an unusual post – this will knock you all out of your comfort zone.

Everyone likes music. What are you top ten musical acts/performers/bands/composers?

Here are mine (at the moment) – you’ll notice that they are all Anglo-American mainstream rock bands. Hopefully some others out there have a more diverse taste in music. I expect to see prominent New Guinea skull knockers and Pervuvian whistle blowers listed. Oh, and of course, being the UQM community, crazy Finnish death metal bands!

1.   Queen
2.   Nirvana
3.   Queens of the Stone Age
4.   The Beatles
5.   Led Zeppelin
6.   Alice In Chains
7.   Jimi Hendrix
8.   Foo Fighters
9.   The Datsuns
10.   Supergrass

In Flames - melodic death metal
Amon Amarth - melodic death metal
Haggard - symphonic metal
System of a Down - um.. if you tell me what this thing actually is.. (no hypnotize nor memzerize)
Judas Priest - you should have heard of it..
Blind Guardian - quite a poptular power metal band
Mike Oldfield - mostly instrumental stuff like Tubular Bells or Amarok
B.B. King - blues

My taste in music varies a lot with mood and such. For example, at the time I started writing this:

Playing: David Lowe - BBC News Countdown (extended mix) (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/talking_point/4992088.stm)
Next: Rob Hubbard/DJ Mitch - The Human Race (Pop Goes Classics) (http://www.remix64.com/tune_344200.html)

However, tomorrow I could, for example, be listening to Lordi - The Arockalypse (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Arockalypse) followed by Frank Klepacki - Command & Conquer: Sole Survivor (http://frankklepacki.com/).

Title: Re: What music do you like!
Post by: Cedric6014 on July 06, 2007, 01:57:01 pm
I think that Command and Conquer had the bestest game music (not including SC2)


Title: Re: What music do you like!
Post by: Elvish Pillager on July 06, 2007, 02:04:28 pm
Best game music? Out of what I've played, these games had the best music:
- Fish Fillets (http://fillets.sourceforge.net/) (cross-platform)
- World to Conquer (http://northernbytes.ca) (mac/windows)
- Odyssey: the legend of Nemesis (http://www.paranoidproductions.com/odyssey/index.html) (mac only)

My mp3 player is full of game music as well, not excluding the SC remixes of course. But also some Zelda music, Emperor: Battle for Dune and Beyond Good and Evil .

Uh no that isn't false.. Music is alot like religion, it my be influenced by culture and personality etc. but everyone likes some sort of music . Just as every culture and every person has religious views. (Yes athieism is religion as it serves the same purpose imo.)

Yes you do. You have an idea of how us humans fit into this universe which is esentially what religion is . But  I don't want to derail this man's thread. We should take it elsewhere if further discussion is warranted..

And don't derail the damn thread. You can't definitely say people like or don't like music.

Ten of my favourites, with soundtracks where appropriate;

Frank Klepacki (Command & Conquer Tiberian Dawn through to Red Alert 2)
Jeremy Soule (TA, WHM40k: DoW/WA/DC, SupCom, etc.)
Machinae Supremacy
Jon Hallur (EvE Online)
Bill Brown (Generals / Zero Hour)
Steve Jablonsky/Trevor Morris (Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars)
Harry Gregson-Williams (Metal Gear Solid 2)
Toshikazu Tanaka (Metal Slug 3/4/5)
David Bergeaud (Ratchet & Clank series)
Holst (Planets Suite)

Saying everyone likes music is somewhat akin to saying everyone likes sports. Except the difference being that perhaps 98.5% of people like music so it’s easier to get away with the generalisation (whereas maybe only 65% of people like sports).

As for Holst’s Planets – that’s a masterpiece. Would be one of my favourite classical works.

        I need to go with RTyp06 on this.

            Everyone gets goose bumps from some type of music whether or not they’re willing to admit it. I am also noticing a trend that certain people are trying to hard to be incongruous. I hear:  “I’m too deep for the likes of you man!” Bullshit! I won’t name any names but….. I remember joining in a philosophical conversation in arena one day; and the subject of perception came up. I chimed in with the KNOWN POINT that, while we can’t be SURE of another’s existence, we can be sure of our own. It is a simple philosophical constant brought about by empirical evidence. “When I look at a mirror, I know someone is looking back at me. ME!” This universal truth seemed too much for one of our more intelligent members to understand.

Ridicule is the favorite weapon of fools. Pay them no mind.


Title: Re: What music do you like!
Post by: Cedric6014 on July 16, 2007, 09:58:29 pm
Amiga, if you would just apply that same philosphical constant to the music debate then you would realise that only YOU know if you like musuc, you can't possibly know if others do or not.


Title: Re: What music do you like!
Post by: Amiga_Nut on July 16, 2007, 10:12:23 pm
That would be a good point, if only it were true.

You know EP; I don't think you're qualified to make that determination.

Title: Re: What music do you like!
Post by: Lukipela on July 17, 2007, 04:35:24 pm
That would be a good point, if only it were true.

Explain to me why it isn't. You can only be sure of your own existence, but you can be sure that someone else enjoys music?

While I think it mindnumbingly depressing that there are individuals out there with no sense for the spiritual or musical, that hardly surprises me. I mean, compared to the fact that some people enjoy scat, a lack of interest for music is hardly comparable.

Post by: Amiga_Nut on July 17, 2007, 08:06:48 pm
ALRIGHT! I suppose there are perhaps a few people in the world somewhere that don’t like music, never have and never will; although I have trouble imagining it. Just like I have trouble imagining anyone else here admitting the possibility of being wrong.  >:( :P

If it makes you feel any better, most people who say they don't like music are pretentious blowhards. Just like the ones who pretend to not have emotions, or be above them. But there are always some oddities around.

I bet this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkHbON2jF70) would make them laugh and enjoy music anyway. But they'll never admit it.

It will be very hard for someone who was born deaf to enjoy music.


Title: Re: What music do you like!
Post by: Lukipela on July 17, 2007, 08:56:35 pm
Well done!

I seem to recall something about modern death people getting advanced hearing aids than can be operated into the ear (confirm/deny?), but without one of those it'd be very hard. Still, I suppose they could feel deep bass. They probably all love R&B.

EDIT: To have at least some relevance to the original topic, I suppose I should talk about what music I like. Unfortunately that won't help much, because I'm pretty omnivorous when it comes to music. Unlike a lot of people I know, I have no trouble listening to and enjoying most of todays pop music, but I also enjoy all sorts of jazz, blues, classical and so forth. Pretty much the only thing I don't like is really really heavy Death Metal.

I would say that someone who is born deaf can't fully enjoy music, but most deaf people can feel the music - (bass/rhythm) and they seem to enjoy that well enough...they at least experience a part of it. I used to go to this club downtown where a lot of deaf people would go - the music would be abnormally heavy on the bass and the deaf crowd would be dancing to the rhythm.

One of my all time favorites is Simon & Garfunkel...I also like this new song by Plain White T's called Hey there Delilah. Mazzy Star, jazz, blues, oh yeah and Gorillaz are good. Hmmm...REM was at the top of my list for a long while and Red Hot Chili Peppers. I guess for the most part I'll listen to just about anything - Although, most 80's music makes me feel ill and pretty much anything by Josh Groban, Celine Dion, Barbara Streisand, and Bette Midler really blows me.


Title: Re: What music do you like!
Post by: RTyp06 on July 19, 2007, 02:23:20 am
Hypothetically speaking, if doctors could cure all deafness, I'd bet 99.99999~% of deaf people would enjoy some sort of music if they didn't already.

Also I' am a little more diversified in musical taste than the previous post would suggest. Although I do tend toward dark,  heavy and bluesy music ,I do like alot of pop,rock, modern country. Not much into classical or jazz except on occasion. And just can't seem to get into  Blue Grass , Hip Hop, Rap or Yodelling at all.

Greatest song ever:

I don't often like particular groups, genres, etc, but I do tend to like VG remixes a lot (http://www.ocremix.org (http://www.ocremix.org)).

TSO's pretty cool.
Gotta like the Beatles.
John Williams is required for a Star Wars fan.
Lemon Demon's a ton of fun.
Pink Floyd, of course.
Rammstein, somewhat.
Weird Al Yancovic.
ELP here and there.
Animusic's cool. (http://www.animusic.com (http://www.animusic.com))
And DMA_SC, who did the stuff for Darwinia (http://www.darwinia.co.uk).
