The Weekly Bit: 08/15/04: A Bit of Music

  1. What kind of music do you listen to?
    Wide range of musical tastes. The single most-represented genre in my music library is rock, followed by classical and then pop/Top 40.

  2. Who is your favorite music artist?
    Several vie for this, so I'm listing them all in alphabetical order: 10,000 Maniacs; eastmountainsouth; the fat lady sings; Grey Eye Glances; Sarah McLachlan; October Project; Vienna Teng; Steve Winwood

  3. How has your taste in music changed over the years?
    More classical as I've grown to appreciate a good symphony performance and wanted to include such music in my collection. I'm also much more particular about the music I'll buy nowadays, but with the various online music stores (iTunes and so on) I can be much more selective and not have to buy an entire album, say, because I like a single song I've heard.

  4. What is your favorite song?
    Another several-ways tie: "These Are Days" by 10,000 Maniacs; "drunkard logic," "providence," "arclight," and "twist" by the fat lady sings; "Between" by Vienna Teng; several of Steve Winwood's solo tunes; several October Project and Grey Eye Glances songs as well.

  5. What song do you think is just plain annoying?
    Much of what ends up getting airplay on mainstream radio irritates the hell out of me, primarily because it's repeated into the ground.


If you could write a song about your life what would you title it?
No idea, I don't have a song idea for it.

What style of music would it be? country? rap? ballad? etc.
See previous.

Has there been a song out there that has really moved you and changed your outlook on certain things?
Another "several" answer, this time too many to list. Many of the songs that are important to me I found by way of good friends, and each song has a particular place. None stands out enough to be listed specifically.
