Do you tend to listen to new music, or do you stick to the music of your adolescence/young adulthood? (Young adults - just make a prediction)
A combination. I actually didn't like a whole lot of music for my age in HS. I like Classic Rock and alot of the new stuff they're making with a folk/blues rock vibe is very cool.
i go back and forth between the two, usually dependent on the quality of the local radio station.
When I was younger (in the late '90s / early '00s), I'd listen to Buddy Holly-era oldies, and some classic rock, which back then meant '60s and '70s. Now, I mainly listen to '90s grunge.
More old than new, but I still listen to some newer stuff.
I preferred "oldies" even when I was young, but I like a lot of new music too. Have extremely eclectic tastes.
Its a mix of both
I'd say a little bit of both.
1990s for life.
Most of the music I listen to actually comes from before I was born.
I usually listen to a lot of newer stuff, but lately I've been tuning into a Sirius station that plays mainly early 90s Grunge and Alternative. Brings back a lot of memories, but I don't want to be that guy!
Yeah, Lithium is my go-to station, too.
Love Indie music but love oldies. And thanks for the follow!!
Sure thing, I saw you were highly recommended on another poll. :)
Highly! Really. Let me straighten out my skirt, square my shoulders and thrust out my breasts just a little.
My... well if we're being all proper-like, let me just say it's an absolute pleasure to be making your acquaintance. :)
Kick out your two fav bands that you are certain I have never heard. Let's c if the meet n greet was mutually beneficial.
Two observations first:
1) the fact you're asking for bands you haven't heard of probably means this is going to be difficult.
2) this would have been much easier 10 years ago as I haven't a clue what's popular in *any* circle these days.
But let's go with a couple of my recent favorites - Ultraista and Savages.
How about you? What are two bands I haven't heard that I must do?
t.A.T. u. and Serebro
nothing serious there, just some real fun with video and music. More later.
Mostly relatively new stuff, but some oldies too. And a lot of new stuff done by old people. Neil Young is still a favorite. I heard Crimson and Clover on Orphan Black today - I'd forgotten how good it was.
Both, 70s/80s for sentimental reasons but I keep up with the times and pick some contemporary songs, one of my favorites is "get lucky", but isn't that sooo 2013 ;)
Old crap mostly. We're talking 50s & 60s. I only learn to appreciate newer stuff when someone shoves it in my face, like my daughter (80s) or one of my Y aerobics instructors (2000s). Left to my own devices, I revert to Dylan, Seeger, etc.
I didn't listen to the radio for a while because I am a fan of *new* music, but they just overplay the crap out if it. I have a lot of "oldies" on my iTunes and usually go to it once the radio has played "The Best Day of My Life" for the 6th time..
All of It.
I enjoy listening to the music I know and love, but I also like discovering bands that are new and new to me.
