Seems only natural to carry over Xen and Sammy's threads.

Post yer tunes, folks. Links to sound clips are strongly encouraged. If it's worth posting, it's worth sharing.:D

Today's tune for me:
"Melinda" from Tearwave

I've got my iPod on my latest buy:
'Kali's Son' by Jonas Hellborg ... wild bass innovator - I miss Shawn Lane, but the wild east/west jazz fusion on this is pretty nice.

Well, I never really liked Haydn, or the rest of the Vienna classical composers... I'm more into early Baroque, Romantics or the so-called Contemporary Classics. Yet I spent a little more time with the Vienna folks recently, and I actually came to like them.
Yes, Haydn is THAT weird.

Right now I'm listening to Roger Cicero...

You know what they say, if it ain't baroque ... ;)

'Contemporary Classics' - what is that? Are we talking 12-tone stuff, minimalism, or ? That is the stuff I like in classical - Beethoven is the *earliest* of the composers I love :)

Now listening to the Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines Sountrack.

OK, my post wasnt wholly accurate - I was more dating my general taste as being from Romantic period and forward. I love stuff from Vivaldi, Back, Mozart, and so on ...

Phew! ;)

Would have to say Romantic is my favorite period as well.

Mozart? Meh... evolutionarily important, but mostly bores me... Requiem is good...

Well, I meant 20th+ Century composers, like my favorite Brits (Vaughn Williams, Elgar, Holst, Britten), the 12-toners like Schönberg and Schreker (in sense), Shostakovitch and others.
Good God! How can you like any classical music and not love Bach?!?!?!
It's a matter of definition. I (for example) love Bach, but he is a Baroque composer and thus not a 'true' Classical composer of the Vienna period (which was truly short, as Beethoven - the last in line - was more of predecessor of the Romantics than anything else).

Currently listening to web radio... 'Gimme gimme gimme' by Abba (feel comforted, Corwin, I love Abba).

Wow, thanks for that link, mate! I really loved the game and the music, and it seems now I can finally get it on my PC! I hope you are seeding it, too, BTW ;)

Otherwise, I listen to gothic metal/dark rock, starting with the founders and the kings of the genre, Paradise Lost. The site I've linked to contains a few songs for your listening pleasure.

I used classical with a little "c" to refer to the genre, which encompasses the periods of Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary.

Yeah, now that you said it I saw and understood. Sorry about the confusion!

I'm currently listening to Samael: Jupiteran Vibes.

@JonNik: Missionforce: Cyberstorm had wonderful music, too.

I've had the ABBA collection (4 CD's) in my car for several years :)

Outside of ABBA, I listen to the music from highschool: Journey, Kansas, Chicago,
REO Speedwagon, STYX, Rush, etc. I also like Michael Jackson's stuff before he became a weirdo.

Arcturus - Maquerade Infernale

You know, this cd just gets raves from practically everyone Ive seen mention it, I just dont get it. Ive had it for weeks, and every time I put it on it's an effort to finish it. This and "Mandylion" by The Gathering, both highly praised cds in the metal community that I just cannot for some reason like. At all.

Total waste of money
