My Musical Preferences

Shesinparties: Regarding music, I like it less and less as the years go by. Maybe old age, but that doesn’t make much sense in my case.

Before I was born: 1955-1979 (birth of rock n roll through 70s) similar to my 80s taste, and nearly as strong. I like it.

Preteens: 1980s- Love Black and White music. Macho, chicky, and gay types of music. Love a variety of White music (punk, new wave, metal) Strong White underground scene. The zenith for me.

Teens: 1990s- Love White music still. But I gave up on Black music at this point. Like macho, but less chicky and gay music.

2000s music- Like White music still, but less variety. Not into chicky and gay types of music.

2010s- I only like White chicky music. Not into man music at this point.

I went from liking a variety of music to White chicks music. I wonder what I will like the next decade. Gay Arabian music?

Gay Arabian music is hot. You need to check it out. Very underground scene.

I  have really only listened to what could best be called White music all my life, although I did like disco, Motown, and funk, all forms of Black music. Hendrix wasn’t playing Black music.

Never been into any other ethnic music, sorry, although King Sunny Ade and Sun Ra Arkestra West African music is damn good.

Not into Black jazz or R & B either. Some soul music is ok. I like Stevie Wonder a lot, and I do like James Brown.

I like a lot of genres within White music though. Face it, rock and all of its forms and offshoots, folk, country, and electronic music are all de facto White music; non-Whites can definitely play this stuff, for the most part they don’t.

What the Hell is chick music? I have no idea what that even is.

What the Hell is fag music, I mean gay music? Village People? Soft Cell?

1955-1979 (Birth of Rock n Roll through 70s) similar to my 80s taste, and nearly as strong. I like it.

I was listening to this music only in my teens and early 20’s. I didn’t listen to any music as a preteen. Of course this is my favorite.

Preteens: 1980s- Love Black and White music. Macho, chicky, and gay types of music. Love a variety of White music. (Punk New Wave Metal) Strong White underground scene. The zenith for me.

I do like this but especially towards the early 80’s when I was much more into it. I love punk, new wave, and underground. Probably not gay, Black, or chick music though, whatever that means.

Teens: 1990s- Love White music still. But I gave up on Black music at this point. Like macho, but less chicky and gay music.

2000s music- Like White music still, but less variety. Not into chicky and gay types of music.

2010s- I only like White chicky music. Not into man music at this point.

I don’t know much about music during these eras, though it seemed to me that early 90’s music was pretty good. Music went downhill for sure after that, however, good music continues to be made.

  1. Jimi Hendrix was a rock guitarist but he was a bona fide bluesman. He incorporated blues into his music, so when you listen to some of his stuff you are listening to Black music. “Voodoo Child” is nothing but electrified blues.

    1. There’s a ton of blues rock, but almost none of it was played by White musicians. I consider blues rock to be White music. Blues itself of course is Black music. Sure Hendrix’s rock had blues roots, but all rock has blues roots. Think about this. Say, “Jimi Hendrix was black music.” Doesn’t that sound silly?

      1. It sounds silly to you, perhaps. 🙂 (Yes, the music Hendrix played has blues roots, but Hendrix also performed blues and R&B in his career.) It’s not a stretch at all to say that Hendrix was black music.

          1. Hendrix was greatly inspired by Bob Dylan. It’s been postulated that’s what took Hendrix to the next level as an artist, beyond a guitar phenomenon.

          2. Hendrix defies categorization, being the genius that he was. And yet there’s no denying the Blackness in his music. (The controversy over whether his music is “Black” or “White” has been going on for years.)

            No matter what you call his music, I know I love it. I like to imagine that when my husband and I first met and he looked at me, his eyes started singing:

            I have only one burning desire…
            Let me stand next to your fire.

  2. Chick music is music made by women that is loved mainly by women, especially teenage girls. Think Cyndi Lauper and Brittany Spears.

    Gay music is music beloved by gay men. Disco and Hi-NRG were two similar forms of dance music that were popular with the gay crowd.

    Black music taste pretty much aligns with you. Pro funk, disco, Motown, R&B, etc. Anti Jazz and rap.

  3. like Stevie Wonder a lot, and I do like James Brown.

    Hey, me too. “I just called to say I love you” is my all-time favorite. I don’t mind calling it my #1 song either. All the beautiful moments of my life, the lovely women I’ve been with, that song was playing in the back of my head, if not for real.

    I don’t know much about music during these eras, though it seemed to me that early 90’s music was pretty good. Music went downhill for sure after that, however, good music continues to be made.

    It’s pretty shitty now. Ryan Lewis, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran….I can’t listen to any of that muck. It’s revolting.

    I made a comment on YouTube about Ed Sheeran and they downvoted me till I was bleeding red on the YouTube comments section. I am sorry if you like that mediocre singer, but he’s just an untalented person who got lucky.

    Rihanna is not a patch on some of the real talented Black singers of yesteryears. How can you even match Donna Summer?

    In 2015, such softies as Fun., Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and Maroon 5 topped the charts. In 1997, we had The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Sugar Ray, Everclear, Third Eye Blind and The Wallflowers. Something changed (though one can argue rock in general has been progressively neutered since the 1960s).

    On a side note, could you imagine Pamela Anderson and Fun’s Nate Ruess banging on a yacht? Me neither.

    Pink Floyd told the Man to “leave those kids alone.” Beyonce wants to be the Man and ban words. Everything is safe and easily digestible — like baby food. No one expresses what’s in their heart anymore; they only want to make it to the charts, which inevitably leads to stale, superficial tracks that are “in” one week and “out” the next.

    It’s been scientifically proven that repeated exposure to a song makes you like it more. Record companies literally pummel it into your brain until you’re OK with it. Radio stations are playing fewer songs than ever because once corporations invest in an artist’s song, they peddle the shit out of it until it’s playing on repeat in your tortured noggin.

    We are being held captive by crappy music. Mike Rugnetta of PBS says it’s “akin to musical Stockholm syndrome.” And we all remember being held down and force-fed “Blurred Lines” and “Fancy” recently.
