      A little prediction.
      My Guess is, Rock will be the most popular. Although its not my favorite.

        A lot of everything. A little country (John Hiatt) but not too much NO rap...sorry....but I like one Eminem song....does that count? But the ones I checked were Rock and Other. That other is Folkish Rock Folkish rock is totally awesome Oh, and I forgot POP! It's all because of Magnetic Duty that I have more pop songs. Also, Jizzle Dizzle has helped me embrace pop Reading off my favorite artists from my top 45 songs....

        The Decemberists (Folk/Rock)
        Dar Williams (Folk/Rock)
        The Beatles (Old Rock)
        Blue Oyster Cult (Rock ...sorry, but I just love "Don't Fear The Repear")
        Dave Carter/Tracy Grammer (Folk)
        The Killers (Rock)
        Eddie From Ohio (Folk/Rock)
        The Nields (Folk)
        Shawn Colvin (Folk)
        Placebo (Rock)
        Hush Sound (Pop)
        Great Big Sea (Irish/Rock)
        Red Hot Chili Peppers (Rock)
        Foo Fighters (Rock)

        All those bands have at least one song in my top 20.....

          What did I dooo?

          Also... Hush Sound is NOT pop >.> *shoots your face*
          AND Great Big Sea isn't Irish foolish boy (I still love you anyway)! They're Canadian! Unless you meant to say Celtic for gerne.

          I spose the majority of my music comes from the many subgenres of rock, though some come from pop and for sure I have some weirdass music taste For the last year or so I've been on more of an Indie binge which so should get its own category

                oldies & classical. lmao. i'm pretty sure i'm going to be the odd girl out here.

                elvis presley, wolfgang amadeus mozart, jerry lee lewis, judy garland, the righteous brothers, the platters, sonny & cher, general golden oldies from the '50-'70s (includes a mixture of rock'n'roll, rockabilly, boogie woogie, bluegrass, ballads, country, blues, civil war era folk ballads--non-hippie!, pop, doo wop, motown, soul, swamp funk, las vegas power ballads, opera, barbershop harmonizing, balladeering, etc...--elvis alone is about half those genres--including opera!), general classical, movie soundtracks--danny elfman, john williams, etc...

                so, i checked off rock, pop, country and other.

                and my favorite movie EVER is amadeus.

                i've been to 2 (?) of mozart's homes (salzburg and vienna) and 2 (?) of beethoven's (vienna).

                and of course, GRACELAND.

                Spoiler:







                my ranking list (with samples):

                1) Elvis Presley
                2) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
                3) Jerry Lee Lewis
                4) Judy Garland
                5) The Righteous Brothers

                  Some Hush Sound is totally pop As is Metric, IMO, or it might be Alternative? AH! So confusing

                  Yeah, I was mixing up a band with Great Big Sea. I was still listening to Great Big Sea, though! I did mean to say Celtic....I think.....

                    I listen to all sorts of music really, if I like it then I'll listen to it, I don't really have one type of music I listen to and others I just despise.

                    I chose pop, rock, dance and other which would probably be alternative and R n B.

                        I've always trouble with 'pop', 'rock', 'indie' etc. Because I never know which artist belongs where.

                        My favourite artists are;

                        Tori Amos
                        Jeff Buckley
                        Coldplay

                        I also love to listen to;

                        Bruce Springsteen
                        John Mayer
                        Keane (but their first cd was so much better than the second one)
                        Ilse Delange (she is Dutch)
                        Jewel
                        Dido
                        Regina Spektor
                        Aimee Mann

                        And I enjoy listening to soundtracks of Disney movies and musicals.

                            i have such a varied taste in music i checked most of the boxes, hehe.
                            i just don't really listen to RnB / Hip Hop or Reggae.

                            i can't be bothered listing, so just have a look at my last.fm account:
                            http://www.last.fm/user/xmorbid_angelx/

                            it isn't completely exact though since my little brother listens to music on my computer sometimes. so Arctic Monkeys as my no.1 artist is more than slightly exaggerated, heh.

                              10 years ago or so I used to listen mainly metal (mostly doom), punk and classical.
                              At the present moment less of metal (but there are some like Type O Negative which I'll love forever), still classical (lately more opera plus minimal stuff), also now I'm more into indie rock and folk. And countless other rock bands. And ambient.

                              But this is what my current iTunes Top 10 most played songs looks like:
                              1) Glen Hansard - Lies
                              2) Glen Hansard - When Your Mind's Made Up
                              3) Quiet Village - Victoria's Secret
                              4) The Mountain Goats - No Children
                              5) Nico - These Days
                              6) Ron Sexsmith - Cold Hearted Wind
                              7) Cat Stevens - Peace Train
                              8) Arvo P?rt - Cantus In Memory of Benjamin Britten
                              9) Feist - Inside & Out
                              10) White Stripes - My Doorbell

                                  I've got no idea if they're still making music but I love listening to them! I love 'Dyke March 2001' - the soundclips are brilliant and the way they've got the drums like military - it's dynamite!

                                  Loving Crystal Castles! Only found out the other day that 'Alice Practice' is literally just that, Alice practising. Originally it was just a recording of their soundcheck

                                  And I love Justice! My dad publishes them so I get to hear all the new stuff I love their collaboration with Simian for 'We Are Your Friends', it is one of my ultimate club tunes

                                      I'm a rock person. ANY genre of rock if it has a heavy sound, like hard rock or metal. I also love the raw sound of punk. So I chose rock and heavy metal, also other because I do like some alternative. My fave bands:

                                      Nirvana
                                      Sublime
                                      Alice In Chains
                                      Rage Against The Machine
                                      Bad Religion
                                      The Sex Pistols
                                      Minor Threat
                                      NOFX
                                      Rancid
                                      Metallica
                                      Megadeth
                                      Slayer
                                      Ozzy Osbourne
                                      Pantera
                                      Smashing Pumkpins

                                      And although most of my musical tastes are early-mid nineties and before, I do like some of the newer stuff, like:

                                      Avenged Sevenfold
                                      Flyleaf
                                      Seether
                                      Three Days Grace
                                      Evanescence

                                      And the amazingly talented (For teens, at least):

                                      Black Tide

                                      I also love some musicals, which is why I adore the new Sweeney Todd soundtrack, and why the OMWF soundtrack is the gem of what I call my "Non-Rock" music collection.

                                        Oh really? Which bands/singers/songs you like the most?

                                        I like Tenacious D, Foo Fighters, and Coldplay too, but Red Hot Chili Peppers is totally different. I guess Basak and Selen can talk about this obsession very well

                                        Fly away on my zephyr,
                                        I feel it more than ever,
                                        And in this perfect weather,
                                        We'll find a place together
                                        Fly on... My wind...
