    According to MP3.com mine is indie/alternative, but i find I am getting more and more into the blues. You can see a list of my CD's at the link in my sig and make up your own mind.

    My favourite stlye of music is indie, electronica and folk pop. So anything from The Smiths, New Order, Kraftwerk, Blondie, Simon and Garfunkel, The Bravery, The Killers etc.

    95% of the music I listen to is bands, I find solo artisits lack substance unless they are very good, e.g Morrissey, Bowie, Elton John etc.

    Roots (in particular celtic), some folky stuff.

    From battlefield band and Skyedance
    to Wolfstone, the Peatbog Faeries (yay got the new album today!!) and the afro celts
    Paul Mounsey, Runrig
    KT Tunstall
    all the way through U2, right up to TATU (yes, I actually liked that album, and no, not just because of that video)
    Nickelback

    Then off to Lemon Jelly and Air and a touch of Ace of Base (plus a song or two here and there of pop)
    So much, such a huge range.
    But the Peatbogs, Wolfstone, Runrig, those are the ones that really occupy my CD player.

    Mainly Jazz but I do listen to many other genres, in particularly rock, metal and electronica.

    Spoon 1, what type of Jazz are you into?

    Currently, I listen to a lot of the new rock coming out: The Bravery, Bloc Party, QOTSA, TV on the Radio, Maximo Park etc etc... but I think hip hop still counts as my favourite kind of music since I keep going back to it and have a bit more hip hop compared to rock.. (bit over 2,000 songs to 1,500ish of rock I believe)
    The rest of the space on my mp3 player is taken up by a variety... drum n bass, a fair bit of other electronica (woo! to whoever said they like Lemon Jelly), classical, world (this amazing afro-beat music which was featured on Pitchfork.com for a bit primarily), dub/reggae, blues/jazz... tiny bit of pop

    Well, at present my favourite musical genre is Japanese music, my favourite band being Ellegarden, a J-punk band.

    Would have to be the blues for me...I am the BIGGEST Eric Clapton fan (not by mass)

    "White man's blues" is good but you should listen to "real" blues , a la Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson. The people that influenced Eric Clapton. :cool:

    Do you not find Eric's solo bluesy gets a bit stale? I mean it's great and all but I think there's much more passion and variety in his Cream era. They truly were fantastic.
