barbershop music... hmm like the music they play in barbershops..? If you like that, then I like elevator music.


Actually it originated in barber shops, very long ago. Or, at least, so it's told.

If you don't happen to know what kind of music it is, I'll tell you and I'll give you a link to a video on youtube.

In a nutshell, it's male-only quartets singing popular songs a capella in close harmony. Like this:

Did you try reading the rest of my post? You would have found out.

I think I should have rephrased it as "since you say you don't know what it its, I'll tell you and then give you a link", because I did both things.

I like mostly alternative rock but I also like Salamander which is a hard rock song.
I like DMB, Darkness, Duran Duran, I love Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and much more!
Seldom Jpop is good and some is really bad. IMO

The Japanese songs I like are:

Mr. Children is pretty good. I like that new song he/they sing.
O yeah and Aqua Timez
Ayumi Hamazaki (Blue Bird) :D

BTW is Ayumi Hamazaki's music directed to girls?
I really enjoy her song Blue Bird and I'm a guy

I find that all music is good in some strange way, but if I had to choose favorites I would probably say rock, techno, dance, and classical. All good. Even better mixed together. (Hint: Think about "Coldplay")

I'll listen to just about anything, really. I just put everything on shuffle all the time, so I'll get some Missy Elliot and then some Berlioz. :p

But my favorite band for the time being is Muse. Just saw them last month in San Diego and will be seeing them again here in Vegas in September! One of those bands that's at their peak live.

Punk!!! (old school stuff mostly but there are a few good bands out there)

Old school rap (when they didn't have to cuss every other word)

Heavy metal (slayer!!!!!!!)

AFI they are hard to fit in a genre but they are pretty much my favorite band.

and finally anything I think sounds good :-)

I am not a big fan of him, I don't like what he represented (whether intentionally or unintentionally) with his music. I don't like singers who glorify being a "gangster". I also don't like artists who use the "n" word in their music. As you can probably tell I don't like almost everything that comes out now a days.





The best old school stuff didn't cuss at all.

Well, if you listened to his older music he doesn't glorify being a gangster.. Like his songs

Changes, i aint mad at cha, smile, keep ya head up, ghetto gosple, life goes on.. ect.

And I hope you don't mind me asking.. by why do you care if they say the 'n' word or not..

I grew up on rock and roll, mowtown, and the Beatles (genuflecting..)
I'm not into alot of what passes for music these days, especially not hip-hop or rap. I've pretty much revolted against what I've been subjected to on the radio of late, although I find some of the techno stuff interesting.
I'm originally a guitarist, but I'm also learning fiddle and tin whistle, so I enjoy alot of celtic music.
Basically, if someone sits down and writes a song with a good narrative, I'm all ears. People like Richard Thompson come to mind, as well as John Hyatt.
Classical has always been a mainstay (Bach, Mozart, Chopin, Rachmaninov)
But every once in a while I have to dig up my copy of Abbey Road :D

I didn't say all his songs. Personally I don't find "changes" that bad seeing as the original song was pretty good. His persona did glorify the "thug life" though. He was one of the few rappers that did actually care about the community but unfortunatly he and his friends were involved in a lot of gangster activity. The incident that involved his death started with him beating up another gang member in retaliation. It was not just the music that promted the lifestyle it was his life that did.

It is ok to ask questions.

I know what it is like to be on the recieving end of that word when it is not from a rapper.

I don't feel there is any need for that word and I don't understand why black people (mostly the youth of today) still use it.

yeah I know what it's like to be on the recieving end of that word too.. I don't care(as much) if someones just.. well.. If they call me that word Directly meaning "black slave" I'd get very mad.. If they just say it in a sentece(the way rappers use it) I might not get mad.. This might sound racist but.. I'd get mad if someone white called me it, even if they just use it in a sentence..

Anyway..
