The Music I Listen To

I can't play a single musical instrument. I no longer attend concerts and my music isn't continuously in my ears.  I have dedicated over nine years to customizing my iTunes Library for my listening pleasure. I currently have enough music that I can listen for ten days and not hear the same song twice. I had a few albums and a plethora of 45's as a teenager. The one artist that had a truly positive effect on a home life filled with disharmony was Tom Jones. I didn't start finding my musical saviors until I was 20 years old. That's when I allowed myself to listen and let the music influence my positive energy. That's also when I met my friend, Beth, who helped me tune my musical personality. I rarely listen by artist because I like the element of surprise in my huge multi-genre play lists.

My favorite genres are alternative rock, indie rock, classic rock, rock, adult pop, and rhythm & blues. I have quite a few motion picture soundtracks, a little country, and some easy listening (smooth jazz and piano.)

I have three or more songs by the following artists (current favorites are underlined).

AC/DC, Adele, Aerosmith, Alanis Morissette, Alex Clare, Alexandre Desplat, The All-American Rejects, Amanda Marshall, Arctic Monkeys, Ashlee Simpson, Asia, Avril Lavigne, AWOLNATION, The B-52's, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Bad Company, Badly Drawn Boy, Band of Skulls, The Beatles, Beyonc√©, Billy Joel, Billy Squier, The Black Crowes, The Black Keys, Blondie, Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band, Bonnie Raitt, Boston, Broken Bells, Brooks & Dunn, Bruce Hornsby, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Buena Vista Social Club, Bryan Adams, Carolina Liar, Carrie Underwood, The Cars, Carter Burwell, Celine Dion, Chaka Khan, Cheap Trick, Civil Twilight, The Civil Wars, Colbie Caillat, Cold War Kids, Coldplay, Corey Hart, Corinne Bailey Rae, Counting Crows, Crash Kings, Creed, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Cyndi Lauper, Dan Auerbach, Dashboard Confessional, Daughtry, David Bowie, David Cook, The Dead Weather, The Decemberists, Def Leppard, Don Henley, The Eagles, Ed Sheeran, Eddie Money, Elton John, Elvis Presley, Eric Clapton, Faith Hill, A Fine Frenzy, Five for Fighting, Fleetwood Mac, Florence + The Machine, Foreigner, The Fray, Fun., Garth Brooks, Gary Clark Jr., Gary Wright, Gavin DeGraw, Gavin Rossdale, George Benson, George Harrison, The Goo Goo Dolls, Gordon Lightfoot, Gotye, Grand Funk Railroad, Green Day, Griffin Peterson, Hall & Oates, Heart, The Heavy, Howard Shore, Howie Day, Hozier, Imagine Dragons, INXS, J.
