If my life depended on it, I wouldn't be able to name one Garth Brooks song. Like, maybe I'd get credit for a honky-tonk reference with a gun to my head, but even then, I don't think that's the song I'm thinking of. Gross.

I've always disliked country music even though it was the backbone of everything around me growing up. I know he's popular, and I know that I know the chorus to the song Rodeo, but there is zero chance I would have remembered it out of the blue. The only reason I know any country songs is because I had a roommate at Iowa State that was a massive (like two-step every Saturday night) country hick and he would play songs by the hundreds until he found something I could tolerate. There were a few Brooks and Dunn songs that I ended up liking, one Sammy Kershaw song, (someone named R-Something Atkins or something similar also had a song I liked) and a few Clint Black songs. That was basically the list and I've never listened to another country song or station by choice since that time (around 1995).

What kind of music do you like, out of curiosity? I'm with you for the most part with country ( though there is some that I like)

I consider myself to be very eclectic, but I'm guessing most people do.

These are the things I listen to on a daily basis:
  • Orchestra music (mainly movie soundtracks)
  • Reggae (mainly The Fugees, Wyclef, Marley)
  • Soul (Mainly James Brown, but others as well)
  • Christian (Mainly Sovereign Grace Music and Whitecross (Heavy Metal), but many others as well)
  • Grunge (Nirvana, Alice in Chains, etc)
  • Johnny Cash
  • Tom Petty
  • Bob Dylan
  • Random 80's and 90's stuff
  • Random oldies (pre-70's)
  • Limited 70's, but I like Led Zeppelin and a few others
  • Eminem (not much other hip-hop, but I do like several RTJ songs)
  • Alternative (I love the "old" stuff like The Cranberries, and the no longer new stuff like Band of Horses)
  • Folk (Old folk, like Peter, Paul and Mary & Dylan, and new folk like Passenger)
My favorite song by far is Knockin on Heaven's door. I must listen to about 30 covers of that song regularly. My favorite versions are as follows:

I don't know what they are officially classified.


Edit: "Their repertoire included elements of hip hop, soul and Caribbean music, particularly reggae."
