Interesting variety here. I have to confess to hating jazz - I have never heard anything that appeals. Likewise Rap - that is just noise, and doesn't come close to music so far as I am concerned. Of course, this could have something to do with the fact that I don't understand a word which, I suspect, is just as well,
I like Big Bands (when bands are bands, not just groups of wannabees ) but my music of choice is classic. I love classical music, like most of the romantics like Mahler, tolerate the baroque, am not enamoured of Bach, and rarely like the modern non-melodic self indulgences.
There is nothing better than hiding in the greenhouse, pricking out seedlings or whatever, with Classic fm on the radio (dare I say "wireless"?). Easy listening, easy atmosphere, total peace.
