    I'm reeeeeally in to indie at the moment. I have an obsession with Bombay Bicycle Club and have recently been listening to the Maccabees. Ive always listened quite religiously to The Script too.

    It depends how down I am. If I'm really down then I usually have to separate myself from everything, including music. But if I know that music will help it would probably be what I usually listen to or some relaxing acoustic stuff. (Ie Bombay's Flaws album)
    Did go through a phase where I really liked reggae, but I tend to listen to one main artist for a number of months, rather than a range of people.

    More often than not I listen to music that exacerbates my mood. If I'm feeling down then I'm far more likely to listen to depressing music than I am if I'm happy, I find it incredibly cathartic.

    New wave is my favourite.

    When I feel down I listen to some John Denver or Dolly Parton

    I don't understand the sort of person who would willingly confine themselves to such a narrow subset of the thousands of genres available.

    I agree. I always find it difficult to answer when people ask what genre I listen to.

    Same, to a certain extent. I used to listen to nothing but Silencer, Coldworld and Xasthur on bad days. Now I usually go for black metal that's more uplifting or just melancholic rather than straight up depressive.

    Psychedelic stuff. Also a lot of folk. I don't mind what genre something is as long as it's good
