    Can't stand that earbendin',kneeslappin' stuff, nor do I classify rap as " music."
    Love jazz except infusion jazz which sounds like a bunch of musicians "warming up" for something. I even listen to classical. Now that's REAL music. I've learned to tolerate the pop bands because I have two teenagers who are always telling me to "CRANK IT UP MA!" when we're in the car. (Now I know what my mother went through!!!) I tell them,"Look, I'm not young, and I don't want to draw attention to myself at this stage of the game." But that's probably why I have trouble hearing sometimes... Musta been that darn loud music and I can still hear my mother yelling, "Turn that da#* music down!!!" The Eagles are "Still the one" for me,Billy Joel, Steely Dan, Heart. My favorite vocalist ever is Whitney Houston.

    It all depends on mood. I just finished a busy 12 hour shift and I've got Bob Marley box set playing. Love the Dead, Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, Elvis Costello, Beck. Bad Religion is my absolute favorite So Cal punk band; great for the tread mill or just for letting some aggression out, and not only do they rip it up, but the lead singer has a Phd in molecular biology or something so they've got actual intelligent things to scream and rant about. Rage against the Machine is good for the gym too.
    Love Sheryl Crow's voice, not to mention how flat out sexy she is. Janice Joplin and Susan Tedeschi too. Janes Addiction, old REM and so so many others...

    I just got tickets to Blink 182 here in Dallas and possibly backstage passes. I am so excited I can't stand it. I just saw Bon Jovi and they rocked for 2 and a half hours straight! I would also love to see Sugar Ray with Uncle Kracker--those are all my favorite bands.

    I love just about anything if it's played well! Favorite rock band... tie between Aerosmith and Eagles. Also love Springstein, Billy Joel, Madonna, and Elvis...the King that is. I was weaned on Elvis. Also love Creed, the song that the lead singer wrote for the birth of his son, With Arms Wide Open.... I want a man like that!!!! Melts my heart! I don't enjoy too much country, but I do love to hear Patsy Cline wail, and I also like Merle Haggard, but I can't stand Willie Nelson, sorry Willie.

    I think my favorite music is Hip Hop, I love it, can't stop dancing and snapping my fingers. I realy like En Vouge, and Destiny's Child. Anything with a good beat, or soulful lyrics, and I am singing at the top of my lungs in the shower.
