Thank you. Love it here.

Well, I think it was Louis Armstrong who said, "There's two kinds of music, good and bad."

Japanese, when sang, can be a little headache inducing. Especially when they try to translate it into English. "I must protecting my heart from your faaaace..."

Honestly, I'm a little narrow-minded musically. I like the volume button up, too, but when the music itself is loud and turned up, like at a rock concert, or a young black male in a souped up car in a parking lot (everyday occurence), I want to leave.

Soundtracks and TV themes are my favorites. I don't know why. Someone else my age is listening to Metallica, while I'm listening to the theme from "The Odd Couple." Although I do appreciate a little Weird Al every now and then...that's about as noisy as I get.

In college, I would even turn the volume way down, I guess out of courtesy, in case someone down the hall could hear it or something. Most of my neighbors were not so kind.

Welcome to FR!
Nice to hear you have an interesting taste in music.
I've been collecting records/cds since 1973.
I think it's an important thing to appreciate different genres (I hate Rap though).
I especially collect the Beatle's Apple Records label (Have them all now), the artists ranged from Hard rock to Celtic to Indian.
I agree on the Japanese kabuki music, to me its like fingernails on a chalkboard. Weird Al is pretty funny, amazing that his father was a famous polka musician.
