.....I like almost everything but Rap.....makes me want to vomit!!
Krauss & Union Station are a favorite but this song always picks me up when I'm down and takes me back.
What floats your boat??
Paul, how can you criticize Rap! What other kind of music doesn't require you to be able to sing or play an instrument?

I got into it though the back door of folk music of the 60's. I just sold my 5 string banjo, because I love the music, but not enough to practice it evidently!

I screwed up and sold a 1970 Fender Strat Starburst out of high school when I got into hunting so I could get a Leupold....I'm NOT going to say what that Ax is worth today. I could KICK myself....I have a 70's vintage Alvarez Acoustic that is worth some coin but I was too much into football and track and never did spend the time or effort to learn to play.

Anyway, one thing we can agree one is she has the prettiest voice on the planet!!
I wish rap had never been thought of.....it is like fingernails on the board to my ears!!
I like just about any kind of music if it's performed by skilled musicians. About 95% of what's recorded and played live today (and for all of the 60 years I've been listening) isn't. Particular favorites if done well include Inca folk music, Russian classical, Baroque, bluegrass, jazz, and rarely, hard rock. Any of those done poorly sucks. Good music can put you in a trance and move you to a different reality.
A least I can enjoy music. I've been very careful to use good hearing protection when shooting since I started. It's the one thing my father taught me correctly about firearms.
I don't want my boat to just float. I want it clipping the wave crests at 70+ knots and taking me to a secluded beach with clean sand and supurb weather.
Good music can do that.
joan biaz-----the night they drove old dixie down-----makes me cry. ben
Have to admit I like Hard Rock....
...but old school like Led Zep , AC/DC, Stones, Hendrix, etc....

Paul, I had you pegged as a Bocephus man. Was I wrong?
HMMMMMMMMMMMMM let me think????????????????????? AHHHHHHHHHH, anything buy that Texan named George Strait. As a matter of fact just about anything in the Country and Bluegrass genre.
In getting back to Alison Krauss, she reminds me of a songbird. I just love watching her perform. The words come out of her mouth with very little effort.
This is one of my favorites by her a James Taylor remake.
Well, now.. this definitely fits the general classification.
Lesee... Old country. Don't care too much for some of the modern country, It's just not my favorite.
Listen to a lot of other stuff (classical, big band). Really enjoy singing barbershop quartet though.
Guess I'm the odd one in the bunch.
You are correct...

Hank Jr, both W & W ', Merle......I like it all. Music keeps me sane. Dire Straights, Rush, Clapton....
There is a Christian Rock group called 'Third Day' that is super cool too....

I always liked Queen, Styx, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon,and The Police.

Some of the early Kingston Trio songs are among my favorite. Some of John Denver's. Almost all of Willie Nelson's music and who could forget Johnny Cash.
Anyone remember "Sing Along with Mitch Miller"?

I just transferred that from an old L.P. to digit CD last week!
