A post about music...what kind do you like?

 I am looking for new music to add to my library. I've been listening to the same 20 or so songs for months now, and I'm tired of them. But I don't really know what to download.

I used to listen to R&B, Hip hop, rap...but I'm not really into that so much anymore. I immersed myself in that genre for years, I feel like I've heard it all. I want something new, something fresh. I want a new genre to obsess over. lol

I also went through a metal phase...I don't mind more melodic groups like Avenged Sevenfold (if you would call that metal), but I don't want anything hardcore. Also - NO TECHNO. If it's got anything that could be described as a "club beat", don't bother. That isn't music, it's computer generated noise. (Dated myself with that sentence, huh? lol) I like rock music a lot, pretty much all kinds. Pop...that's hit and miss. Some I like, some I hate.

So what do you listen to? What type of music? What bands, what singers? What would you recommend for someone looking to branch out and listen to something new? You ladies are an eclectic group, so I figured this was a good place to ask.

So...music recommendations. Go!

I watched, like 28 zillion different videos of "Skinny Love" last night. lol I love Bon Iver.

I like songs from almost every genre. I go through phases. Right now I'm a little obsessed with Justin Timberlakes "Mirrors".

I know, these songs have been out forever. Just wait til I start listening to Frank Sinatra again! lol

 I love me some Frank! Nothing wrong with enjoying the classics. Etta James is one of my go-to artists. :)

I like indie and brit pop. You've probably heard The Artic Monkey's latest on the radio:

and maybe Noal Gallagher's High Flying Birds (formally of Oasis):

i like 80's like Bon Jovi etc., a really good band (if you don't mind christian music) is Skillet or Mandisa. :) So many but yet my mind went blank.

Have you listened to post hardcore? It's not really heavy. There's bands like Pierce The Veil, Sleeping With Sirens, also bands like All Time Low, Mayday Parade, A Day To Remember. Saving Abel, My darkest days, Bullet for my Valentine, three days grace, crossfade, newer shinedown. I'm trying to think, I usually listen totthe heavier stuff. OH SafetySuit AMAZING band.
