I'm pretty eclectic. I like all sorts, such as pop, rock, country, new age, classical, andopera. The genres I'm not keen on are rap, soul, R&B, power ballads, blue, and jazz, but there are always exceptions.
Mainly because there is something for each mood.
I like it sometimes a little loud, most the time just normal level.
It can evoke feelings of sadness or even being happy.Cause people to dance, laugh and sing.
It really is it's own entity.
From the '50's & '60's, especially Surfing, & Mersey sound.
The 3 Tenors, especially. Placido Domingo.
Many of the UK artists, eg Elizabeth Jenkins, Bryn Terfel, Paul ?, & their ilk.
Flamenco, eg Paco Pena, Paco de Lucia, & other Spanish-type music.
Argentinian, eg Astor Piazzola.
Various Ballet scores, eg 'Swan Lake'.
'Carman', & as an Opera, too!
