    Music is completely subjective. It is all a matter of taste. One persons music is another's noise.

    Todays music is no better or worse than anything else in the last 100 years depending on who you ask.

    R.I P. Ronnie James Dio


    Today a Rock legend died. At 7:45 am this morning Ronnie James Dio passed to the next world. He is one of the last of the great rock vocalist. He will always be. and we are the Last in Line.

    We'll know for the first time
    If we're evil or divine
    We're the last in line
    See how we shine
    We're the last in line



    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSjlEjpyA9g"]YouTube- Dio - Last in line[/nomedia]

    We're a ship without a storm
    The cold without the warm
    Light inside the darkness that it needs, yeah

    We're a laugh without a tear
    The hope without the fear
    We are coming - home

    We're off to the witch
    We may never never never come home
    But the magic that we'll feel
    Is worth a lifetime

    We're all born upon the cross
    The throw before the toss
    You can release yourself
    But the only way is down

    We don't come alone
    We are fire we are stone
    We're the hand that writes
    Then quickly moves away

    Chorus:
    We'll know for the first time
    If we're evil or divine
    We're the last in line
    We're the last in line

    Two eyes from the east
    It's the angel or the beast
    And the answer lies between
    The good and bad

    We search for the truth
    We could die upon the tooth
    But the thrill of just the chase
    Is worth the pain

    We'll know for the first time
    If we're evil or divine
    We're the last in line
    We're the last in line

    We're off to the witch
    We may never never never come home
    But the magic that we'll feel
    Is worth a lifetime

    We're all born upon the cross
    The throw before the toss
    You can release yourself
    But the only way you go is down

    We'll know for the first time
    If we're evil or divine
    We're the last in line
    We're the last in line

    My favorites

    Fighting for Strangers-Maddy's refrain is hauntingly beautiful

    Weaver and the Factory Maid-amazing vocal performance by Maddy

    Tam Lin-toss up between this and Sandy Denny's version but the first part of SS's is one of the greatest folk works ever.

    and Black Jack Davey

    I cannot think of a lady with a better voice than MP though Annie Haslam and the late great Sandy Denny come close

    In my opinion, I think most of the stuff on the radio charts sound "flat" and dull.

    1) Hip-hop. I think real hip-hop died in the 90s. Back then the genre was mostly about stuff you could relate to like growing up in a bad part of the city, being pissed at the government, getting away from trouble, or something with meaning. The beats where mixed creatively and they were smooth. Most of it was inspirational. Remember how good hip hop was when 2pac was alive? ...Now all I hear are songs about how much money you have in your pocket with auto-tune vocals. If 2pac and Biggie were still alive, Lil Wayne would be working at burger king right now.

    2) R&B. The artist today have rhythm I guess, but where is the blues? The R&B I hear on the radio sounds like teen pop... I'd say this genre died in the late 70s or early 80s.

    3) Rock. I think rock music died in the mid 90s. Most rock artists today don't seem to have influence from legends like Pink Floyd, the Beatles, ect. Rock has been tuned down and stripped from it's roots in my opinion to get on the pop stations. We are getting an "emo" image in the rock scene. There are still a few bands that have some rhythm like Disturbed and Slipknot but of course the mainstream only plays their slow PG songs and they are played on the radio rarely.

    As for MTV, I don't think it's even fair to call it "Music TV" anymore. They play a music videos sometimes yes.. but for the most part it's full of 'reality' shows.
    OK so I don't only listen to talk radio, but I don't tune into the music stations.

    I like what I like and I like drums. Kodo, for example. Buddha Bar 3 is another. I don't hear much of that in "main stream" music...at least not a drum rhythm which is free of singing, screaming or electric guitar.

    My musical preference is the balance to my humor. Unlike my dry sense of humor, my music needs to be free of sex or anti-social/religious language.

    Songs which follow the traditional style of instrument intro, pre-chorus, chorus, and coda are a turn-off. This is especially true if the coda is particularly long and only contains one line repeated over and over.

    If the music MUST have lyrics, (which I'd rather it didn't) creative use of a bridge is appreciated.

    Techno is another turn-on. I loves me sum techno.
