My favourite song for the last few months = [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMEl5RGnfEc"]YouTube - The Real Soggy Bottom Boys, Man Of Constant Sorrow[/ame]
Always loved the song, and now have quite a few Soggy Bottom Boys songs on CD, I love driving to work screaming along
Not a huge fan of modern music really, despite my age, other than trance Tiesto, corsten, van-buuren, sasha & digweed, BT and all their respective aliases. Occassionally, for reasons beyond comprehension I end up with a bit of a taste for some real early to mid 90's Happy Hardcore
Other than that - Genesis (Gabriel & Collins), Phil himself, Queen, Floyd, Mac.
I listen to most things, we'll usually have the radio on whist we work.
I have however, banned heart radio. Utter crap, the same 10 songs on loop ALL DAY LONG. You could have the best song ever but you'd go quietly insane after hearing it as often as they replay them on heart. It was really bad that even after the 6 week summer break, they still had the same 10 songs on loop.
Been listening to absolute radio a bit more, they have a no repeat policy between 9 and 5 which is perfect for me, although they like to repeat that every 5 seconds, lol.
Odd selection here 57 generss about 460 artisits in my itunes.
But as rules Blues, Jazz, 80/90s rock and country.
Few favs B.B King, Blues Traveller, Blues Brothers (mainly as they got me into blues music), John lee Hooker, Katie Melua, Norah Jones, big and rich, Gretchen Wilson, Gary Allen, Jools Holland, Lonestar, Bryan Adams, Bon Jovi, Meatloaf and Madness.
One thing I regret was not seeing B.B King this year being that I think it is unlikely he tour the UK again.
mainly electronica/trance for me.
most of the trance from the 90s/early 00s seems to be miles better than a lot of the stuff today which all sounds the same to me.
looking at the Albums on my mp3 player at the moment I have everything from
The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Stone Roses, Kasabian, Guns n Roses, Ian Brown, Pearl Jam,
Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party, Kings of Leon, , Coldplay, Nirvana, Oasis, Radiohead, RHCP, Stereophonics, The Music, The View, The Fratellis, The Zutons,
and on a electronic tip Ive got the likes of Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx, Kraftwerk, Slam, Silicone Soul, The Prodigy, DJ Yoda, Octave one, Modeleslektor, and a load of live sets from other DJs
to some 1993 Fantazia live sets featuring Ultra Sonic, Bass Generator and some other oldschool Rave artists...
Bit of an eclectic taste I have

I would say for anyone who has kids Mr Mum by lonestar is probably the truest video around.
[nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1TTXdsCtvw"]YouTube - Lonestar - Mr. Mom[/nomedia]
I also think that the video Tough Little Boys from Gary Allan video one of the best videos around.
Maybe not to liking of some peoples tastes on here

I appreciate most genres but mostly tend to head in the direction of Rap.
A few artist in no particular order (Sorry about the huge space - wasn't intending on embedded youtube videos happening with my links!)[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaCyEi_xMsE&feature=related"]YouTube - Eminem - My Darling (2009)[/ame], D12, Dizzee Rascal, Ludacris, [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrX5bUFpVtE"]YouTube - Plan B - Mama[/ame] (UK Rapper / Singer not US band), [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSynz-iSyvo"]YouTube - N-Dubz - Everyday Of My Life ((Perfect Quality))[/ame], [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEPUUYZGR8A"]YouTube - Hollywood Undead- The Loss (With Lyrics!)[/ame], Linkin Park, LL Cool J, Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes etc! All of those might not seem varied but my taste extends to more alternative stuff like Rammstien, Slipknot, and Fightstar right through to George Michael, Five and Michael Jackson!
PS - Check out the hyperlinks - I've gone for some non-mainstream tracks!

Not so much genre specific, more a fan of specific artists/songs.
Jens Gad (Achillea, Enigmatic Obsession)
Dead can Dance
Also have quite a lot of film and game soundtracks.
The main part of my listening is based around the bands that started with the British R&B movement in the '60s. So Clapton, Floyd, The Who, Stones, etc. Add to that English Electric Folk, Fairport, Steeleye etc. and you get a fair idea. I'll give most things a chance, but always remember that "Rap" is spelt with a silent "C".
Everything, From some very nice relaxing classical to banging Lisa Lashes mixes of hard house, to rap from the Cypres Hill to Bass feeds fromt he latest Dubstep.
Depends on my mood really, forexam ple when I skate (inline) I like some 'banging' dance type music to keep me pumped and commited to each trick, as not commital causes too much injury.
This is a recent skating favourite I have on my Ipod, nothing like dropping a 14ft vert with this in your ears.
