I am old fashioned in what I like now. I listen to the 40’s most of the time on my XM radio. When growing up it was the called folk music in the 60’s that I liked. I always like the Big Bands of the 30’s and 40’s and Broadway show music.

the best thing about "walk this way" by Run DMC wasn't that it blended with rock... it made us realize that we've been listening to all along.

What? No KISS in your list?

is rock without 6 string guitars, so you're still listening to variation of rock, thank you, Elvis has left the building...

Gosh, we are so different when it comes to why the music was important to us. It seems as though you picked those songs because of the message they delivered. I selected my songs (below) because of what they represented.

Highway Star - Deep Purple (I wasn't allowed to listen to rock music -this was the first time I defied my mother by purchasing the album).

Words (Between the Lines of Age) - Neil Young (I could escape from life and totally get lost in the molody and counter melodies).

Yellow Brick Road - Elton John (I learned from this song that it was okay to quit, leave, or drop out of the main stream)

Salzbury Hill - Peter Garbiel (From listening to this song, I knew that I would have failures in life at times but that I could overcome them).

Angie - Rolling Stones (My first "love" and I selected this as our song).

My youth top five:

People Are STrange - The doors
Another Brick in the Wall-Pink floyd (2 for 5 exact match...spooky!)
Dreamer - Supertramp
Yesterday - Beatles
Nights in White Satin - The Moody Blues

I haven't listened to most of these in a while, but my Pink Floyd collection is alway part of the suffle. Beastie Boys and Run DMC were awesome, but never touched me as deeply as the classic rock albums. I guess in some things I can't help but show my age.

I'm a metal man, myself. One of my favourite albums is "The Puppet Master" by King Diamond. King puts out concept albums. Each album tells a story, and each song is part of the story. "The Puppet Master" is a sad, twisted tale about a puppeteer who makes puppets out of people, and King tells the story from the perpsective one one of these puppets. I posted the lyrics from the second song on the album on my blog. The first song is an intro. The intro on this one is different, coz he usually does creepy intros, but this one is more of a song, but it's short.

Other bands I enjoy are Nightwish, Iron Maiden, Judas Preist, Ancient, Sinergy, Iced Earth, and Gwar.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

That's one helluva list! I also love Gwar, Iced Earth (esp. Matthew Barlow), Iron Maiden, and King Diamond. Some others I love, Ronnie James DIO, Slayer, Lacuna Coil, Type O Nagative, W.A.S.P., Anthrax, Megadeth, Nevermore, helluva lot of others, lol. Oh yeah, and KISS with Ace Frehley!

I'm like Willie8one2 - my tastes are more conservative as I get older: jazz, classical, big band. If I listened to rock (seldom), it would be "dinosaur" stuff like Yes, Jimi...etc.

My brother finds the most interesting/oddball music on the net, like Johnny Cash singing in German, a Scandanavian choir singing Black Sabbath in Latin (serious!).

Ok five song from my youth that impacted on me

1) Queen - Boheimien Rapsody . I was just a kid when it came out and it scared the shit out of me! All the talk of killing and dying and the really strange sound of it. I love it Now.

2)Kate Bush - Wuthering Heights. as with Queen I had never heard anything like this before, trully inspired, a work of genious.

3) Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark(OMD) - Enola Gaye. This was my introduction to OMD, definately my favorite band during the '80s

4) ABBA - Dancing Queen. The perfect pop song.

5) The Specials - Ghost Town. Perfectly somed up the mood of "Thatchers Britain" in 1981

First Girlfriend song was Berlin's "Take My Breath Away"

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo

Everything from classical to country. Currently listen a lot to 3 Days Grace, Evenesense, Seether. 53 and still rockin'. Alot of what I listen to depends on the mood and what/where I'm at. Black Sabbath has the best road music (i.e., a long road trip).
