I had an idea recently that I think could be both entertaining, and educational as well as allowing my friends here in the community to get to know each other a little better. All you have to do is answer this one simple question. What's in your playlist right now? I am firm believer that you can learn a lot about someone from the music that they listen to. And the best thing about it is that there is no better way (that I have ever seen anyways) to find out what kind of person someone is without so much as asking a single personal question. Another thing I consider Important about this is that (and as much as it pains me to have to sound like my grandpa, here goes...) the fact is, good music is getting hard to come by. You know this to be true young Jedi. So taking the time to participate in this will benefit us all. Especially since many of you are literally thousands of miles away, and in places that we may never see in our lifetime. Which makes the chances of stumbling across the same bands that you do pretty remote even in this wired world of ours. So please take a minute and you just might open someone up to something great. One important side note here: DO NOT say anything negative about someone else' taste in music, or I WILL come unglued on you.

Awesome! Thanks you guys, this is exactly the kind of responses that I was hoping for. I guarantee that if this continues we will all benefit from it and find new things that we would never have known about otherwise. Just speaking for my own stuff, I have ton of music that I have collected over many years. A large portion of which I did so not necessarily because it was for me, but just that I wanted to save anything rare I ran across that I felt might disappear. My own taste casts a pretty wide net as far as genres go but my favorite stuff is pretty obscure. I can't wait to see what guys come up with. I really would love to hear from everyone here. Just put up a tune or two you enjoyed today. If something different catches your mood tomorrow come back and share it. Don't be shy about it. :)

I mostly listen to my ~10k tracks from mp3 collection on shuffle (as much again is archived). By the following artists:

View attachment 2018-10-30 Main music artists.jpg

It's kinda stale; I've not had the energy to curate or add to it much in the last few years. Started it in the late 90s, ripping my CD collection. I was lucky to be in student band through highschool, which brought me straight into the good stuff: Radiohead, Pumpkins, Blur, Zeplin, Flyod, Nivana, etc, etc.

Went to lot of rock/metal club nights in the early naughties, too. I made a Spotify playlist of the tracks I remember from that (but don't listen to most of them nowadays).

I've spent the most energy trying to track down good copyright free music under "attribution only" licence for use on my videos (got a lot of quiet space to fill there). I've mostly gone for lo-fi-ish, electronic, chill-hop, whatever the heck it is, as it has to be instrumental and not too distracting. So I'm quite liking Birocratic, thanks @AstraTheDragon, I'll have to try to listen through some more like that, and see what's useable (in legal terms too).

This reminds me of a little discussion we had about music following a dev stream that used a bunch of free-to -use tracks. (I'm sure there's many more threads about musics in this forum section, that I don't follow.:oops:)

I don't know about anyone else, but I've learned quite a bit already and have just barely got into a small fraction of what you guys have posted so far. To be honest, one could probably learn more from 10 things that you are actively into now, or that maybe really mean something to you but just haven't listened to lately, rather than 10,000 that you have but do not. Don't get me wrong, I really am finding a gold mine of things I have never heard of in there, but it leaves me wondering which are the important ones in there in your view. @QuackDuck I'm digging the whole "8-Bit" thing. The concept of doing so much with so little in terms of equipment is a brilliant idea. Some of it is really impressive in that context. @AstraTheDragon you have a pretty diverse list there, and from what i've heard so far they for the most part have a similar "feel" to them that I can see why chose them (if that makes any sense). The classical had some of my favorites in there, and I was happy to see some ska in there as well. Back in high school most of my buddies were Rudy's. I really miss the ska scene around here. Check out "Let's go bowling", they are a local band here, and really cool guys. I really like The Untouchables, The Specials, and The Toasters a lot too. @xXThunderFlameXx There's whole genres in there I didn't even know existed. @Sdarks what was the name of that metal band that you were listening to the other day? I was going to look them up, but couldn't remember the name for the life of me. And I realize it would probably bring the list of stuff you guys are trying to do from a million to a million & 1, so i can understand not, but I'm sure everyone would find it interesting to know what kind of music other members of the team are into. - Rooster

Architects and Emarosa are usually who I am listening to. The first aren't very family friendly so I'd suggest younger forum users don't look them up :) @Matt and @Jamie are both fans as well

Some of my more recent playlist additions, that I groove to most: Poliça, Band of Skulls, Wolf Alice, Metric, We Are Scientists. Longer term: Idlewild, Incubus, Finger Eleven, Veruca Salt, Coheed and Cambria, Stabbing Westwood. All time: Radiohead (even though I don't listen to them often, now).


Architects and Emarosa are usually who I am listening to.
... After Anavae, of course. ;)

@rdoom2003 Props for having some Art of Noise in there, I had Beat Box Diversion One playing as I read this. I'm a big Primus fan as well. I've seen them several times. In fact, I have friends that I met the first time I went, and now every time a Primus show comes around and we meet up and hang out. Been going on for 20+ years now. System of a down, Die Antwoord, and Johnny Cash I like also. Lots of unexplored territory in there for me to check out too. Thanks for posting.
