Up until the age of 15, I strictly only really listened to mainstream R&B, dance and pop. Then I discovered online music and started to listen to a teeny weeny bit of rock/metal, some folk, and also some R&B, pop and dance that's not so mainstream. So no massive changes really.

I used to love S Club 7 , Steps and Nsync , Westlife, Britney spears , Blue really into pop .
I didn't like R&B , liked a small bit of rap.
In the teens I started getting into rave music for about a year and pop rock and I like alternative rock an dance.

Now I still listen to Britney Spears. I'm really into dance, mainstream and pop and alternative rock like All American Rejects , The Script , Lifehouse , Daughtry, Coldplay. Only listen to Eminem rap nothing else. I like a mixture really . But my fave is dance or rock or some pop songs.

Age 11- I was given Avril Lavigne's debut album, and I liked the 'grunger' aesthetic, which led to Good Charlotte, Blink 182 et al.

Age 12- I got into The Vines, Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age, System of a Down and Muse. Big sister's much needed influence

13- I became a goth haha. I liked actual goth rock though, lots of Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees type stuff (never Sisters of Mercy though, I just really don't get the fuss over them). Through goth rock, batcave and death rock I discovered proper punk music as well as post-punk stuff like Joy Division and The Smiths. I was also into Prodigy in a big way, and still liked the stuff my sister got me into. I like to think I had very well developed taste at this age, I couldn't stand MCR or any of the other stuff the 'alternative' kids liked.

15/16- Made friends with some of the Cool Kids, getting into British hip hop and grime. My main group of friends were into all the current indie stuff, so I started listening to Bloc Party, Arctic Monkeys etc. which led to less well known indie stuff.

I'm 19 now and still into everything except for the stuff I liked at 11. I like a lot of 'oldies' now too, like The Beatles, Bob Dylan and 50's/60's r'n'b. I lean more towards indie than the goth rock stuff but I still have loads of 'goth s**t' on my iPod

1985- heard Hounds of Love by Kate Bush on the radio. Very intrigued (I was only 7).
For the next few years, I listened to quite a bit of Stock Aitken and Waterman who seemed to be dominating British radio e.g Kylie Minogue (and in the years when she was unfashionable- I don't like her now), Rick Astley, Mel and Kim.
1990/1991- Bought my first records- Nessun Dorma sung by Pavarotti and Saviour's Day by Cliff Richard
Early 90s- got in to arguably my favourite band overall, R.E.M., via Out of Time / Peter Gabriel/ Crowded House.
Mid 90s- Listened to a lot of Britpop at university.

Since then listened to a lot of 60s music e.g. The Doors., Pink Floyd,

When I was really young I used to love the Spice Girls and all those kind of pop classics. :')
I didn't even really care about music that much until I was about 11 - even then I just kind of listened to music when I was in the car or on the computer, I didn't have an mp3 player or anything, lol.
Around year 6 and 7 though I think I was into Girls Aloud, McFly, those kind of mainstream pop bands.
I used to be really into Avril Lavigne around year 7/8, which was more rock (well, what I thought was rock at the time, hahaha) which led me to Panic at the Disco, Evanescence and My Chemical Romance, my little emo phase. :') I used to absolutely worship MCR for pretty much all of 2008, lmfao. I found Paramore around that time too and I still listen to them.
The beginning of year 9 though, I discovered No Doubt and basically played Tragic Kingdom on repeat for months and months, lol. They're still my all-time favourite band.
That led me onto finding other new wave sort of bands, and I also really liked ska music for a while. Leading up to now in year 11, where my three favourite bands are No Doubt, Garbage and The Sounds - my music taste now is so diverse thanks to all those different periods, lol.

5-8 ~ Mike and the Mechanics (only music I would listen to!)
8-11 ~ didn't really care for music. I knew I sort of liked rock music but didn't really have a "favourite" band.
11-12 ~ got a walkman with the second Good Charlotte album (cringe worthy I know) Soon afterwards discovered linkin park and the rasmus. Also got one of the first genesis albums which I loved
12-15 ~ the rasmus became my favourite band. I started listening to a bit more progressive music, eventually discovered Wishbone Ash.
15-17 ~ starting going off the rasmus because of their dire 7th album. Still listen to the first three albums though. I think in year 11 or at the end of year 10 I listened to a Finntroll song and thus began my love with metal, particularly folk metal. Started getting into Mark knopfler when I was 17. Still love wishbone ash.
17-18(now-ish) ~ Metal tastes moving towards black metal. Still really enjoy mark knopfler (listening to him now in fact) and wishbone ash are my favourite band.

I tried to group things as much as I can remember - there's a lot of bands missing but I think I got the most important ones.

As a child my dad always played electronic music, nothing too obscure, just Kraftwerk, Chemical Brothers and Daft Punk. I never really listened to my own music, but I watched Top Of The Pops all the time.

Then when I was about 10-11 I was into 90s grunge music, mostly Placebo and Nirvana.

Then I sorta stopped listening to music and then when I was about 14 I started getting obssessed with certain tracks, I played 'Stupid Girl' by Garbage incessantly. I started downloading random songs that I liked, but I didn't become attached to any particular artist.

When I was about 15 I then got into Kate Bush. I remember hearing 'This Woman's Work' but I didn't know the name of the song so I looked around on YouTube for it. By doing this I stumbled on 'Running Up That Hill' which just grabbed me immediately. I then started buying Kate Bush albums from HMV.. I also got into MGMT which were popular at the time, and I bought their album too.

Now i'm 19 i'm obssessed with music. My taste isn't really defined to one genre but I tend to like electronic music, and danceable music of any kind, such as Crystal Castles, The Avalanches, lots of trancey stuff. I also quite like a lot of dark depressing music, but it always has to be emotionally poignant, I love Portishead, Burial, those kind of night-time songs. I tend to dislike those singer-songwriters who just sit there with a guitar, it's just very boring and limiting. I really don't like Mumford and Sons, I hate retro stuff like that, so many bands are trying to be old fashioned and use fifties microphones and doo-wap clothes, it's just irritating.

Here is my lastfm, I only started it a week ago so it isn't really an accurate representation of what I listen to generally, just the stuff i've listened to over the past week.

My music taste has always been pretty consistant. Even when I was 7/8 my favourite bands/artists were Queen, the Beatles, Bob Marley, Elvis Presley. I did go through a period when I was 14/15 of only listening to Hip Hop/Rap. I'm quite fortunate in that both my parents have great tastes in music and i've grown up listening to it.

Your musical compatibility with edwinfry is VERY LOW


Which is kinda odd, as I really like Portishead, Interpol, The Avalanches and Flying Lotus.


WAY TO GO LAST.FM.

Under 12: Busted, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Greenday

11, 12 and a little when I was 13: Emo music

13, 14, 15: Cheezy, terrible pop music

late 15 and 16: Mainstream rnb and a little rap

late 16 and 17: Pretty similar but a little more into rap over rnb

mid 17 and 18: Underground hip hop



So yeah my taste has changed loads, and looking back on things, I used to have an absolutely horrible taste in music and I really did not know what 'talent' meant in music!

Hip Hop

Drum & Bass- old school sh*t, hate the new stuff

Bassline- I can't believe how much I love this genre, it's very rare that I run into a bad song


Conclusion- basshead from the beginning to the end
