Saturday Question of the Day

Every Saturday I'll try to come up with some "out there" question that just makes you stop and think about something not so important. Think of it as a mini vacation. If you have any ideas drop me a line and we'll throw it in here. Who knows, it might be fun.

OK - Here goes

You've been told that you can only listen to ONE genre of music. One, only one for the rest of your life. You have to choose. What's it gonna be?

For me that is as close to an impossible decision as I can imagine. I've mentioned before that I studied music for years, actually started out to be an opera singer, then switched to theater. I sang in a new age band for a while, back in the early/mid 80's. My singing career started out as gospel, I sang in revivals and church gatherings starting at the age of 10. At this stage of my life I've discovered my voice has changed. I'm more comfortable singing jazz and blues and, well all things ballad. I usually listen to heavy metal when cleaning the house or driving open roads. It keeps me going. My CD changer in the car for most days is loaded with country music. I really enjoy that. BUT....while relearning to play the piano I find I'm enjoying playing classical again.

My oh My! What a choice.

But.....if I could only choose one genre of music to listen to for the rest of my life I would have to choose Country. Sitting here thinking about what I usually stop at while scanning the radio stations, it's country. It's got variety and it's as close as I can find to capturing everything I love. Almost.

SO this is my question for you today.....if you could only listen to one type of music for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Tammi! These are not supposed to be hard questions! LOL...

Being the ex- 80's metal chick...I'm going to have to go with 'thrash/death metal'. Metallica, Suicidal, Danzig, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer....
Though it would be a close call between that and reggae (as insane as that sounds...) ;)

hrmm....tough call

I'd have to go for Bluegrass ;)

Easy for me because mainly now all I listen to is new Country.

You know, Shania, Gary Allen, Chris Cagle, Faith, etc.

Bagpipes, definitely.

Thats a tough one, I'm torn between my metal (Being a cheesey 80's metal head) or Celtic (Being a Scottish Re-enactor). So I'm going to create my own new genre or Celtic Metal... Surprisingly the BagPipes and Metal mix, but so do a Bodrhan and bazookie.

Bagpipes & metal? HELL yeah! It's called "AC/DC" :-)

I'm mostly with ALa71 on this, except more of a "hair-band" 80's metal - Cinderella, Judas Priest, Dio sort of a thing.

I too listen primarily to 80's "classic rock" or country.

Too hard to decide... flip coin

Heads ...how about 2 out of three?...
