What are your favourite music genre's.

I'm into Classical - mainly Brahms, Mozard, Beethoven and Bach.

I like 60's and 70's rock too - Neil Young, The Rolling Stones, Buffalo Springfield.

I have recently got into Jazz 30's-60's - Charles Mingus, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Lennie Tristano, John Coltrane.

I love Italian music too, give this a try:

I also enjoy Classical, primarily baroque compositions for the clavichord, lute, and guitar. I find it good background for reading and studying.

A few years ago I did get into jazz as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__OSyznVDOY

Mingus rocks, and this is one of my favorite tracks.

I'm pretty ecclectic. Pretty much, if it's catchy enough to get stuck in my head, it goes on my ipod. That being said, i've got a lot of tchaikovsky and strauss (I love his viennese extravagance), tons of punk rock, select metal bands (AC/DC, Metallica, Rob Zombie, anything by Rammstein), a lot of new orleans jazz/zydeco (John Mooney being my favorite), and a growing amount of 20's-30's standards, shoulder to shoulder with ZZ Top, Foghat, Eric Burden, Santana, and any form of Clapton. Really, the only thing i don't care for is modern country music, and i keep my picks older country/western off my ipod. Think Willy Nelson, Hank Williams Sr, a bit of David Allen Coe (he gets really raw though.)

Classical- Beethoven, Vivaldi and Wagner are among my favorites

Metal- Sabaton is my all time favorite band, they sing about war and history. As a history buff and a metal fan, I can't help but love it.

 Manowar, Amon Amarath and Ex Deo are pretty awesome as well. Great to work out to.

Classic Rock- Bruce Springsteen (I'm from New Jersey, so its pretty much a requirement), Billy Joel, The Rolling Stones, etc. None of that ever gets old.

I have a varied taste in music as well.

Ranging from classical to heavy metal, including country, pop, celtic, rock, movie soundtracks, ... Like Nate already stated: if it's catchy enough to my liking, I buy it, no matter the genre. Only thing I don't like is modern "R&B", rap, and all that electronic "dance" music. Far to ridiculous for my taste, like the subcultures attached to it.

Am a big Manowar fan, despite far from looking like a metalhead. Currently trying to better introduced to early rythm and blues, soul and jazz. Think Etta James, The Ink Spots, Billie Holiday, etc. I'm looking for  easy listening music of the 40's-50's, to enjoy in the background while at home or while having a drink. So I'm definately open for suggestions, if you would be so kind!
