That you are SG....but look at DD he loves Bob Seger and well he doesn't fit into either category. Maybe people don't want to post outside of the "comfort zone"...or they just like a lot of prog rock and heavy metal.
I have the pleasure on Monday night of jamming with some folks in Chi-Town. They're set list contains some very cool stuff like Highway Star, Lazy, Pinball Wizard, The Seeker, Wishbone Ash aplenty, Allman Bros....the list goes on. Although all a blast from the past, its nice to visit and work with these guys as well as study these great bassists like Martin Turner, Roger Glover and Mr. Entwhistle. I hadn't heard Lazy in years. Machine Head is such a classic album. Jon Lord, Ian, Richie...neeto mosquito!

Their is a wide world of music tgat is being ignored. Remember folks...there is no bad music, only different music . Mayhaps I am seeing phantoms in the posts that do not exist, but it seems I see a lor of Prog stuff, guitar riff heavy music.

Hey, someone <cough...Scooter...cough> made fun of me because I find a great deal of Sting's music very moving, as I do Clair de Lune, Hall Of The Mountain King and Oh Fortuna. Even the Braveheart soundtrack will put chills on my butt. (RN / Scooter... shut it.)
Everyone has something that strikes a chord, for whatever reason. For some, it is music that they grew up with. For others, it may be a particular genre that they are simply in tune with. Not everyone is inclined to listen to everything, searching for a pearl in the goo, so to speak. Some simply do not have the life style that allows for hours of scanning for new, different, good stuff. Some may take advice from others on what is "good" or "different." It all comes down to what the individual finds appealing.

I gave up trying to explain to Dawn why so and so has my utmost respect as a singer, songwriter, drummer, guitarist... Some people simply "listen" to music, they don't hear it. My ex-wife could play anything on piano... but she played with no emotion. As I told her, "why bother?"
That went over well. It's tough to point to a work and convince someone that, "this is great!" Personally, I disagree with the notion that there is no bad music. Beauty, as well as revulsion, is in the (ear) of the beholder.
Why you gotta call me out? I'm not ashamed to say I love me some ABBA, Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow, and even some musical soundtracks (Music Man and Sound of Music are particular favorites). There is even some Beethoven, Holst, and Grieg that I find farking awesome.

It's like my opinion of riding...I don't care what you listen to, just that you appreciate music of some sort. I don't understand people who DON'T listen to music. How can you not? It surrounds us...

In the fragile state I've found myself in the past couple years, it's been way easier to cling to and take comfort in music that reaches me on so many levels. It's my audible security blankie. Someday, when I get through all this, I'll be able to fold it up neatly and put it away, but for now, I need it and I'll use it as much as I want.
Up ^ high! Cool
I suppose for me the music that kicks my butt is prog and heavy like our boys for example. Some great points are made here about not forgetting all the other cool music out there so here are a few of my other favs that I highly recommend:

Gregorian Chant: these fellas used the Greek modes in such a cool way!

Bach/Hayden/Mozart: this age of classical rules!

French Jazz and cafe: my daughter loves this stuff and I like it too!

40's standards

Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire, ABBA, Early Bee Gees (Jive Talkin and before), Jefferson Starship, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Carpenters, Toto, The Stray Cats, The Clash, U2, The Police, KISS, Queen, Barry Manilow, Peter Lemonjello, Creed, Matchbox Twenty, Oasis, Third Eye Blind, Alanis Morissette, The Raspberries, Carly Simon, Dan Fogleburg, James Taylor, Three Dog Night, Paul McCartney...there are so many more.

Yesterday I picked up "OK Computer" by Radiohead. Very cool production and interesting chord changes.
If you look at your reflection in the bottom of a well,
What you see is only on the surface.
When you try to see the meaning, hidden underneath,
The measure of the depth can be deceiving.
The bottom has a rocky reputation

Doing my paperwork today to Hold Your Fire. Time Stands Still moves me though when it came out I wasn't feeling it at the time. It took me time to really appreciate it. As I approach 50 it has deep meaning for me. The combination of lyrics with that melody really hits me deep inside.
Bach rules......
