Actually me and my wife love music and enjoy nothing better that belting out a good old song together on the road.Even have our mp3 plug in of classic cheesy rock to sing to with the likes of Kiss(i wanna rock and roll all night),Wasp(i wanna be somebody),Twisted sister(were not gonna take it) to the Doors(light my fire),Beatles(helter skelter 4 yr olds fav song) and of course Queen(Bohemian rhapsody) to name just a few.Cant beat driving along listening and singing the classics and we have a right old laugh doin it.

Similar tastes Mariesnowgoose: but I would add Paul Simon (Hearts and Bones) Nick Drake and Paulo Nuttini (Sunny Side up), though a certain tv add is regularly repeating one of his songs and one of my favourites to the point where I may get fed up of hearing it (Growing Up Beside You). I also really like Randy Newman, a very caustic songwriter who can say so much with so few words.Oh!.. I nearly forgot The Moody Blues (Threshold of a Dream).
A lot of oldies there, but then so am I.:lol-053:

Most of these groups and singers on here I've never heard of.
Music finished around 1964 for me...... give me 1940s and 1950s music any day. It had melody that the milkman could whistle in the morning. It had lyrics that meant something to each and every person and the bands and artists could sing in any venue in the country without 1000s of watts of PA and sound mixing gadgets etc: They could even sing without a microphone. That is talent!!!!!
Blues, rhythm and blues, swing, jive, doo-wop, country and PROPER Rock n Roll; That's for me, but I'm biased, I earn't a livin' with it.

I appreciate most styles of music ( but not jazz or rap, sorry). Very often I'll hear a song on the radio, or in a supermarket, whatever, that I like, then buy the album for a couple of pounds from eBay. That CD will get played over and over until something new comes along!

This is the most recent one that I'm playing.... Nelly Furtado - Maneater (US Version) - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLolag3YSYU&feature=relmfu) (fast-forward through the ads and the intro)

I try to take some suitable CD's for the area that I'm touring. For example, I would never go to Scotland without taking a couple of Calum Kennedy CD's. His "Land Of Hearts' Desire" has got to be my favourite of all time. It's not currently on YouTube, but is well worth tracking down if you can!

If I'm time-travelling back to the 50's (before my time!), then this is one of the best..... GENE VINCENT- UNCHAINED MELODY 1956 - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkLrfnqvOus)

So true mate. Beach boys even pinched other artists tunes. Somebody on here says fifties music is boring.... eh! How can Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Webb Pierce, Curtiss Lee, Little Richard and Hundreds more like them be boring, Plus wonderful memorable ballads and some of the best singer songwriters like Buddy Holly. Brilliant stuff from the greatest music the world has ever known.

Traffic lights turning purple and ceilings flying away ........ what's that all about?

50s Rock n Roll isn't just music. It encapsulates an whole era when for the very first time young people had freedom from parents decision as to what clothes you should wear, what music you should listen too, what tastes and styles of hair and make-up etc:
The lyrics of the music reflected this era.... The first Car, the first motorbike, the first kiss, the dance halls, the shoes, to be young and carefree. It all went sour in the sixties and is even worse today. What is this Rap crap, nothing but poetry and bad poetry at that! put to a continuous jungle beat? and what the hell is House and garage? Somewhere to live and put the car in to me. Heavy metal? played with so much distortion as to drown out the fact that it is played very badly. Singers who sing flat and to huge backing tracks that continually play the same string of notes with no tune over and over again for 5 minutes and more.
Give me good wholesome clean cut music any day where for approx 2 mins and 20 seconds you can hear the singers every word. Where the musicians can really play their instruments or acapella where there are just singers with no instruments at all. Beautiful long lasting melodies to up-beat, up-tempo tunes..... ahhhhh there is something in there for every mood and I don't need drugs to appreciate it.
