Most of us have diverse tastes in music which covers a broad spectrum in genre. What are your top three genre that you seem to gravitate to either listening or purchasing?

My top three are blues, classic rock, and classical.

I spend most of my listening time with blues and classic rock, my favorites of which are rooted in blues and then alternative rock. I grew up on these genres first on AM radio and then through the heyday of FM radio. (WBCN in Boston),

I expect given the known relationships between familiar music and pleasure and familiar music and memory most of us gravitate to what we know and like.

I’m off to the Florida Audio Expo today. Hope to hear some music I know and like. :)

Heavy on classic rock, then Blues and anything after that. I do my best to give new stuff a listen, but find myself going back to Zeppelin, The Who, Stones, CCR, ELO. I think U2 is more pop/rock but they're in the list as well. Canadian content Rush and the Hip!

I land in this weird, indie rock, classic rock, techno/electronica, and rap venn diagram.

I find it harder and harder to latch onto new bands. Sometimes I feel like I'm that old guy clinching my fists and yelling at the clouds!

Classic rock, rap, and old pop. 70s and 80s pop I mean. Growing up in the 90s I liked grunge. Funny, now I can’t stand it.

I just can’t get into the new stuff. Hearing what my kids are listening to makes me understand what my parents felt when I was a kid.

Have faith, Mike. Our youngest was the same way. Now at 40 he’s collected 7 to 800 used classic rock and blues LPs. Sharing our similar interest provides some great conversation and learning (for me!).

That’s awesome. I can only imagine sitting down with my grown son, pouring a drink, and enjoying some good classic rock!

My daughters are all over the map with genres they like... but they both like Classic Rock. We took them to see Billy Joel on News Year in Queens, NY. It was awesome and super fun to share that with them!

With the exception of hip hop and 99% of rap, I'm more open minded to music than my kids. My eldest daughter was so irate with me when her friends told her that they thought her dad (me) was soo cool because I liked Metric, a Canadian band that came out in an around 2006.

My eldest daughter is a hiphop rap kind of girl despite my attempt to teach her about good music. My youngest followed in my footsteps and appreciates most of the classic rock with Queen being her favorite band followed by CCR. She also adopted hiphop and rap as well.

I feel the same way on a lot of new stuff. My son always tells me how good Post Malone is, I get it but I don't. I said to my son he must be good if he sung a few songs with Ozzy lol. I do like Greta Van Fleet even though they are basically Led Zepp copiers lol.

I like all kinds of music. I tend to gravitate toward the heavy metal, nu metal or some of the very early rap.
.
I picked this video for shock value. The band is very good. I really like female leads in metal bands. Hailstorm, Pretty Reckless, Within Temptation.

Jazz, blues, rock, electronic. My favorite album is Yello - Touch.

I listen to a lot of weird stuff, but constantly looking for music that just sounds great on my system.

...What are your top three genre that you seem to gravitate to either listening or purchasing?
I've done some prior work on this subject before. Below you'll find a pie chart of my music purchases by genre (2K albums)--exceeding three genres in your request. The graphic tells a better story, however:

1708799672313.png


[Note that I have a couple of playlists with named genres in foobar (i.e., Halloween, Christmas). Don't worry about those.]

The above chart doesn't really tell the story of what I actually listen to the most. Classical is by far the most played. New age (ambient) is played much more than the number of discs in that genre would indicate, as well as "folk rock" (70s AOR), soundtracks, and jazz fusion.

Straight-ahead jazz is played less than the number of discs would indicate, as well as rock--indicating shifting tastes over decades of collecting albums. Multichannel SACDs are played much more on an album basis than CDs. Their statistics weren't caught in the above, as was also the case for multichannel DVD-As, DTS, and Blu-Ray music discs.

My setup is dialed-in for multichannel music reproduction.

That’s a very interesting graphic Chris, nicely done! It does indeed say a lot. It makes me want to go through my collection and do the same.

I just hand transposed the statistics from foobar2000 and plotted an exploded pie chart in MS Excel. I'm sure just about any PC-based music player will do that (i.e., provide statistics based on genre).

I like a wide variety of music, from Trance to Classical.
For me, the music has to have dynamic range, and surprise me with something different.
For example, Bubbles by Yosi Horikawa, and his ping pong and basket balls.

A beat on full loudness the whole way, that's the real turn off.

If it is good music, I'll listen regardless of genre, but I gravitate to jazz first, classic rock even pop.
