What's on YOUR MP3 Player?
« on: April 10, 2016, 10:12:18 PM »
Or iPod, or whatever it is you use to listen to music when you're out and about.

Who knows, maybe someone else's tastes in music will help you discover something new and interesting. Or maybe not.

Sure as hell ain't gonna be mine, at any rate.

Anyhoo, I just have a bog-standard (some would say outdated, but I'll never get an iPod) 4GB MP3 Player, and currently residing ON that MP3 Player:

(Most of this is labelled with "OST" just for clarification's sake. Some of this stuff's pretty old, and I didn't feel like typing "Soundtrack" a couple dozen times.)

I have about 2,300 songs on my Fiio X3 ranging from mainstream music, video game and anime OSTs and some obscure stuff.

You only listen to video game and anime music, Xhaiden?

I have a loads of alternative/indie rock, progressive metal, techno, Djent metal, classical, trip hop, indie pop, orchestra and jazz. A few video game tracks and Cowboy Bebop music.

Dubstep can burn in hell.

I have a loads of alternative/indie rock, progressive metal, techno, Djent metal, classical, trip/dream pop, indie pop, orchestra and jazz. A few video game tracks and Cowboy Bebop music.

Yup, pretty much. I've never really had much interest in real bands or singers, and those I do like (with the possible exception of Crush 40) are decidedly old-school.

My parents have wildly different tastes in music, so I got a liking of bands like the Stray Cats and the Brian Setzer Orchestra from my mum, and from my Dad I got a love of heavy metal and rock, stuff like KiSS, Queen, Black Sabbath, Rush, Motley Crue etc.

If I'm being entirely honest, I actually prefer instrumentals to actual songs, as I can just sit back, close my eyes and imagine a story instead of being told one. I've got a folder full of stuff by Celldweller and Blue Stahli, on the sole basis that I can picture my RP characters in some really awesome action sequences set to that stuff. (For example, I can picture my entire cast doing an "out-of-the-smoke" style anime opening to "Not Over 'Til We Say So". I also pictured a oneshot where one of DrWilyII's mooks - likely boforte - would accidentally let a berserk Alastor out of his containment pod, set to the BGM of Celldweller's "Good L_ck, You're F_cked")

My MP3 Player's actually not all that indicative of my overall tastes, I just don't have enough room on it to include everything I want. I mean, VG and Anime music is a big part of my love of music, but even then it encompasses pretty much every genre except rap. I really don't like rap. I've got orchestral, heavy metal, death metal, jazz, trance, techno, rock, swing, K-Pop, J-Pop, electronica and even chiptune in folders on my lappy. I keep meaning to upgrade my player to something with more space, but I always seem to find stuff I want more than I do a new player....

The only thing my dad listens to is Jazz, but he mainly sticks to Kenny G. Yes, Kenny G is a fantastic artist, but listening to the same few songs over and over again for years is annoying.

My mom listens to a lot of oldies; Janis Joplin, Elvis, Lawrence Welks, etc.

My taste in music is a lot closer to my sister's, and she introduced me to some bands like System of a Down, Muse, and Coheed and Cambria. She also likes R&B music, but I'm not crazy about it.

I'm really fine with anything except Screamo Metal and a specific genere of Mexican Music.  I'm okay with Rap if it's good rap, not those posers that rap about sex and treat women like trophies.

I actually like Country Music sometimes, it's not that bad every once in a while.  I'm also a firm believer that we need more banjos in our lives.

Country music sung by females is fine. Country music sung by males is the same twangy garbage every time I turn on the radio in my sister's car.

Anyway, according to Winamp, I'm sitting at 16,607 audio files. A lot are probably repeated track excerpts from megamix albums.

My largest folder is my Eurobeat collectoin, sitting at 45GB and some 300ish albums, followed by my Touhou folder at 42GB and probably around the same album count.

I really haven't been keeping up on new Eurobeat releases for a few years now. Something to do this summer break I guess. I'm a lot more into Touhou arrangements now than ever. Most of it is vocals and some variance of electronic, i.e. Alstroemeria Records, ShibayanRecords, Studio Syrup Comfiture, etc.

I've got some slew of VGM from other games, mostly Falcom titles like Ys and Legend of Heroes, since they have all their OSTs available on Canadian iTunes, a rarity.

Some other weeb trash I have in decent quantity is an old Japanese group called Anzen-Chitai. Maybe a few specific OPs or EDs from some anime too.

Only mainstream western thing I really have is Queen and some musical film OSTs.

But, I'm sure most knew all this already. I'm willing to give most songs a shot but not often bothered to look further into things.

My old player is half dead.  I rarely use it anymore.  Now I just pull up stuff on YouTube.  So, basically, I listen to whatever I'm in the mood to listen to, which honestly could be anything.

P-Phi listens to djent?

I... Never loved you more...

Anyways yeah, I have primarily prog metal of varying types. I also have a little bit of hip-hop (really just one PinkOmega song and a few Hail Mary Mallon tracks). Bit of Lindsey Stirling. Trying to buff my playlist with some synthwave too.

I love you almost as much as I love booty parades.

My iPod has about 53.90 GB worth of music on it. About 13,064 songs, ranging from just about every genre you can think of. No country music though! XD
