Lately I've been watching a lot of dvd concerts with my boyfriend as he loves his music, and when he puts certain ones on, it brings back great memories plus it's fun to get up and dance! But my favorite bands still are the Eagles, and my dream was to be the backup dancer for the Rolling Stones, or any rock band for that matter! Funny thing is my personality is somewhat shy and easy-going so most people get a good laugh when I tell them. So what music do you like to listen to?

Ha ha, I know all about the teeth on edge! My boyfriends son practices his electric guitar along with some really acid rock songs...yikes to these old ears! But we have to laugh because we remember our parents wondering how we could listen to the "oldies" rock we listen to now! Ha!

My very favorite song to hear while I'm stuck in the car or something is Land Down Under by Men at Work. I actually have a rule that there is no talking when that song comes on.
Other than that I'm kind of a channel surfer going from station to station to station till something strikes me :)

Wow...finally a thread I can sink my teeth into...LOL

At night when I'm trying to set the mood, I like to listen to smooth R&B music from the seventies and eighties, which are classics. I also like Bossa Nova, Reggae (but only if it's smooth with great vocals; not the nonesense played by many of todays youths...Bob Marley's music is nice), Jazz and Classical music. However, my favorite music is Calypso music from Trinidad...in fact I have started to write my own compositions, which maybe recorded and released next year in Trinidad.

Now...if only I can dance without stepping on my wifes feet.

Hello music lovers,
I was brought up on classical music and the crooners in the 50's. Then I twisted and shook my way through the 60's/ 70's. Sang folk songs and played the guitar. Then I put up with my son's favourites until he left in 1993. My second husband introduced me to rock and roll of the fifties/ early 60's -- and we love to BEE BOP . Soon having a 50's / 60's theme weekend for which I have made my husband a drape Teddy- boy jacket, and myself the full skirt with stand out petticoat, bobby socks and sneakers. We also go to 40's events and dress in the fashion of those times. We go ballroom dancing too. So my tastes in music are quite diverse as you can see.
Music evokes such memories and is an essential part of life.

Ah, you people and your old-timey music! I'm just kidding, I love it. I enjoy music from all genres and all eras. I must say, hands down, Def Leppard is my all time favorite band. I seen them in concert my 8th grade year. I also love Cinderella, Ratt, Firehouse, Motley Crue, and the list continues. However, lately the Goo Goo Dolls have taken over my mind. I cannot get enough of them.

it matters what mood im in whether or not i like all types of music, like when im sad or angry i listen to disturbed, linkin park, breaking benjamin, nickelback, staind and stuff like that, but when im happy i like listening to mellow music, something with a good beat but also something that i can understand the words too and even relate to them. like late seventies or eighties rock, Eagles happen to be my favorite lately, the live version of hotel california, now that gets my feet tappin lol

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, and forget about the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance take it, if it changes your life let it. Nobody said it was going to be easy they just promised it would be worth it.

Sadly I haven't seen them live, yet.  I just started to get into their music.  I heard their song "Peng!33" recently and have been hooked ever since. 
Belle and Sebastian is another great band, by the way.  "I'm a Cuckoo."

Oh man, it really depends for me, I usually like more "mellow" stuff and my all time favorite band is Radiohead. I also really like Fiona Apple, I can listen to her music and just forget about everything else. I have to be in a certain mood to listen to rap or more heavier rock, and most of the rap on the radio these days is just garbage anyway.

Oh and classical music... I can listen to Beethoven or Chopin any time, but I love to have it on when I'm studying or taking a test, I don't know why but I always seem to do much better! I was listening to Beethoven during a statistics exam in college that I had failed before and I passed with flying colors, I like to think it was because I had that on my headphones instead of listening to everyone tapping their pencils and rustling their papers.

Female, 23, Ulcerative colitis (pancolitis) for 8 years so far; GERD; gastritis; osteopenia in femur head & lumbar spine from long term prednisone use....

Current Meds:
Lexapro 10mg, Lialda 2 pills a day, Rowasa enemas nightly

I like a little bit of everything, but old time jazz (Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington) always puts me in a happy place. I'm a sucker for Marian McPartland's piano jazz. Love folk and indie. Grateful Dead (in small doses -- my husband could listen to them nonstop), especially some versions of Eyes of the World and Franklin's Tower. Can't help but sing loud to the Fugees' version of Killing Me Softly.

Clapton's She's Waiting. Daughter, by Loudon Wainwright III. Bittersweet Symphony (Verve), New Soul (Yael Naim), Are You Gonna Be My Girl (JET), Praise You (Fatboy Slim), Steal My Kisses (Ben Harper). Pretty much all Ben Harper and Jack Johnson. I don't know, there's so much great stuff out there and at my age I'm way behind the curve...

Oh, forgot a few of the critical ones: Bob Marley, Van Morrison, Neil Young, CSN, The Beatles (Norwegian Wood!). My daughter and I sing Don't Worry about a Thing together at bedtime sometimes.
40 years old and female
Dx ulcerative proctitis, 3-5 cm, June 2008 (after 5 weeks of blood and mucous) and still flaring

CURRENTLY: Proctofoam at bedtime
Effexor 37.5, Clonazepam .5 mg (or more) and Trazodone 50 mg for sleep
2.5 mg methimazole for thyroid
Recently started probiotic (Garden of Life Primal Defense Ultra) and acupuncture
Osteopenia (and I haven't even taken steroids!)

I was raised on 70's rock but now gravitate to jazz but I have to say I love anything by Lenny Kravitz (and he's also my "bad boy" crush!). I also really like Maroon 5. Something about them reminds me of songs from the 70's, they can really get a groove on!
Dx UC 1979 at age 14 - (I know, some kind of record)
Was Mildly Chronic (flares every couple of years) until last 2 years now Chronically Acute
Can only get about a month symptom free between flares now
Asacol, Canasa, Rowasa, Cortifoam (on Sulfasalazine for 28 years previously also Pred)
GI Doc recently told me I have "lead pipe syndrome" which is advanced scarring of colon
No surgery - multiple colonoscopies reveal uc "from rectum to appendix"

Oh gosh, you've all given some really good music tips! I'll have to check into some of the music/bands. My mellow music of late has been Van Morrison; for some reason flying on a plane and listening to him on my ipod is so soothing. Eric Clapton is another favorite and has some awesome concerts to watch on DVD.

I listen to rock of varying flavors (heavy on classic rock, progressive rock, psychedelic rock), jazz, bluegrass, reggae, and a wee bit of classical.  Some of my favorites have remained constants for years - The Beatles, Jethro Tull, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, John Mclaughlin Trio, King Crimson, Joni Mitchell, Adrian Belew, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, old Heart, Yes, Rush, etc.  Other bands I enjoy come and go in my mind much as they do on the radio.

Lately the CD I have listened to the most is my own band's album, it feels good to finally have it finished.  I'm not trying to sell our CD here and I'm not in the music thing for money, I have a full-time tech job.  But I would like to share with anyone who wants to hear the music I make (and making music helps keep me going through the rough times).  You can listen to some excerpts if you want to - this site is the one with the best sound quality and best "sampler" to hear.  Click on the "Play All Songs" button midway down on the left:

I listen to a lot of instrumental (piano, sax, etc.), most anything from the Windham Hill label.  I listen a lot while at work - most of us are connected to our IPods all day while working on the computer.  I also love Broadway and showtunes, but don't listen to a lot of them at work as it can be hard to concentrate on what I'm doing.  I also like smooth jazz, 50's and classical.

--justcallm3jack: I didn't know anyone else has heard of Firehouse!!

When I was born my brothers were 14 and 8 so while I was growing up I would hear whatever they listened to which was mostly 80's music like Journey, Reo Speedwagon, Survivor etc. However my parents are baby boomers so I heard a lot of oldies like Billy Joel (whom I love), The Doors, The Guess Who, Led Zeppelin, Little River Band and some late 50's early 60's stuff.

I have my favorite bands like The Shins, The Fray, Michael Buble, Cary Brothers, and Coldlay but there are some songs though that I can't help but turn up loud and sing along too...Catch My Disease by Ben Lee, Layla (acoustic version) by Eric Clapton, Uptown Girl by Billy Joel, Everything by Michael Buble, Sweet Talkin' Woman by ELO, Semi-Charmed Life by 3eb, That's How Your Love... by Diamond Rio

I always have a soft spot in my heart for country of the 90's like John Michael Montgomery, Shania, Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw...Not so much after 2000 though, and I dunno why!?

BUT the best CD I have heard in a VERY long time is Raising Sands by Robert Plant who was one of the lead singers of Led Zep and Alison Krauss who is country. Its an amazing CD!

Sweet mother of potatoes, what's wrong with you people???  confused    smilewinkgrin
Bon Jovi!  Everything Bon Jovi!  Have I read his name here yet? 
 
I've been to 3 of his concerts in the past 2 years.  That's my feet tapping (and working out) music.  
 
I listen to classical, celtic, Global/new age for the calming times.  But there are those times that *Have a Nice Day* is simply the only song that will do!    
 
Have a Nice Day/ Bon Jovi
Why, you wanna tell me how to live my life?
Who, are you to tell me if it's black or white?
Mama, can you hear me? Try to understand.
Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man.
My daddy lived the lie, it's just the price that he paid.
Sacrificed his life, just slavin' away.

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day

Take a look around you; nothing's what it seems
We're living in a broken home of hopes and dreams,
Let me be the first to shake a helping hand.
Everybody, pray enough to take a stand,
I knocked on every door, on every dead end street,
Looking for forgiveness,
what's left to believe?

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,

Have A Nice Day.

When The world keeps trying, to drag me down,
I've gotta raise my hands, gonna stand my ground.
Well I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day
