All about Music

anyone in a group or thinking about entering the music scene?

I am not in a group, but sometimes I tend to make my own music when I get bored. Sometimes, the idea gets in my head so well that it becomes a complete song. I have played some of my songs at school, and the students and teachers are quite pleased. Currently, I am in the process of creating fan made versions of the various tunes in AIR. I may post them here in PCF someday.

I listen to a variety of Music. I've been listening to Metal as of late, But that doesn't mean I don't whip out a good ol' Fleetwood Mac song once in a while. Technically If I like it, I listen to it.

I can listen to clasical music right before I listen to some heavy metal.

I can

HEAVY METAL will outmatch classical Anyday, except on those rainy days you spend laying on a couch next to your lover.

How is one supposed too choose from such a small selection. I think I like more of a punk rock/ska/emo kinda thing though. Kinda weird huh?

WEll I like some electiric and techno but I practiacally isten to everything excpet, hard core rap, country or religion stuff..

I'm into heavy metal. And by that I don't mean the mainstream, screaming stuff. I'm talking about classical metal! Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Deep Purple, Dream Theater, and so on...

Some of the new stuff is okay, too. Arcturus is a good black metal band that started in the late 90's. They don't scream at all. They have alot of orchestreal elements, too.

See ya,

Whoa, someone who likes DT. I'm a rabid DT fan. :B

Anyway, my absolute favorite genres of music are classical, jazz, and progressive rock/metal. I love mixes of any of those catagories (a little jazz-rock fusion, some symphonic metal, etc). Then some other types of music I like are industrial and various other forms of rock and metal.

In spite of the fact that I listen to punk rock more than anything else, classical must take the gold. In my opinion, there lies true musical merit.

Schubert, Mozart, and Vivaldi pwn j00!!!111!!!1oneplustwentysixequalspot

Be aware that I also DO like some soft rock as well, and jazz, and pretty much anything outside the realm of rap (is that "music," really?).

Well, Mozart is pretty good. I perfer Chopin, though. Some genres are better than other, others are not as good. Jazz is pretty nice. Rap is considered "music", because even though it's not singing, it's sometime poetic, and is in rhythm as well.

Jo Smile . Okay...I'm not sure how the introduction of this post shall go. Juat.....that it's about rap. Now, I've said that country and pop are the only two forms I generally don't like, and even though I generally carry low opinion of commercial hip hop, I really do like "good" rap, whatever that could mean - after rock and jazz, it's my favorite form of music. I just notice the general bad opinion about rap, and when one looks at the mainstream, it's easy to understand. Of course, some of it is also cultural differences as well Smile .

Either case, I'm just sharing a list of several artists - some still around, others not - that I particularly enjoy, and they come from a wide variety of genera in rap (bet you didn't even know "rap genera" existed Tongue ): Alternative, political, urban, the ill-defined "Golden Age", etc. I hope that perhaps this will present the thesis that rap is more than just Hot boys and "bling-bling!!!!!" Tongue Smile .

-Spearhead: these guys are great Smile They have a good balance of political and regular beats. "Do Ya Love" can be interpreted on a number of ways Big Grin .

-Jungle Brothers: Don't....look so much for super-deep or political consciousness here Tongue Big Grin . But these guys are a lot of fun, and they incorporate a lot of alternative souds, some Carribean, and a mix of others Smile . Though some of the lyrics of their more obscure raps are quite eye opening.

-The Pharcyde: These guys...*shakes head* I't's really hard to peg them. Sometimes they are so funny....then, they drop something using the devil as a metaphor for...something, haven't quite figured it out yet. Either way, they may sometimes offend you, sometimes make you laugh....but they always surprise you Smile

-Digable Planets: They might be familiar to a few of you Smile . They were one of the most innovative members of the jazz-rap movement of the early 90s.

Those are mostly unknown. The following, however, are not:

-Arrested Development: "Tennessee". That's all I have to say. Their soothing and positive sounds were a breathe of fresh air Smile .

-A Tribe Called Quest: Without a doubt, one of the most intellectual and cerebral rap gorups of the 90's - and one of my favorite groups, as well Smile ). They dealt with a number of social issues - date rape, the use of the word "n***a", and many others - in a calm, jazz-blend style that reminded me of De La Soul Smile .

-Busta Rhymes: I'm sure he's probably the most familiar on this list Big Grin . His aggressive, ragga-style lyrics contain a lot of humor, inventivness, and a surprising degree of complexity....ah, hell, just remember that he's funny and idiosyncratic Tongue Smile .

And now, for the surprising latecomer:

-Eminem:....Surprising, huh? Okay.....I will say this. I like a lot of his earlier works; he had(has?) a very brutal, mean-spirited edge to him, and he was disturbing without even being overtly violent Smile . All of that was accentuated by his high-nasal style. I'm just thankful that he was one of the few hardcore rappers that didn't fall into the "gangsta trap". I'm not so sure as to my opinion of him now, though....

As you can tell, I fall mostly into the "old school" crowd; with the exception of a few listed here, I mostly stopped listening to the "mainstream" after Tupac's death - and completly after Bone Thugs became a little...., well, not to my standard, is the fair thing to say, I suppose, and then broke up.

However, there is a lot to this world, and a lot of good to mine Smile . These are just the tips of the 'berg - the more accessible ones - and there are plenty more I could pull out....maybe in the Song quotes thread Smile . Hope this puts a new light on the music genre Big Grin

Peace Cool .

Edit: ...I just realized for the first time that I forgot to put "rap" in the poll. Sweatdrop ............
Editx2: Forgot to mention Eminem Smile . Added him in...
