I like motown, funk, soul, and a little bit of jazz. How about you?
A mix of classical, folk, country, rock, punk, etc. Mostly 80's stuff with various 60s, 70's stuff thrown in, and some late 90's trance.
John Denver, Hot Chocolate, Tina Turner thanks to my dad, Abba and classical thanks to mum, heavy metal-my brother, I discovered Depeche Mode, punk, goth indie,motown, Kraftwerk. A few years ago Icelandic band Sigur Ros, Olafur Arnaulds, Nils Frahm very melodic ambiant music so pretty eclectic.
I grew up with punk and new wave, do like a bit of folk and have recently bought into a bit of ambient techno. However along with Lullabelle we have fallen in love with the composers Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm.
I've just spent two afternoons listening to Kate Bush's full repertoire (130 odd songs).
Previous afternoons were Van Morrison, Mott the Hoople, The Who, Bob Dylan, King Crimson, Traffic, Queen, Jake Thackray, Pink Floyd, The Troggs, Yes, B.B. King, Long John Baldry, etc., etc.

I like the music that I like, if you see what I mean. That covers a bewildering range of possibilities, but does tend to exclude prog rock, heavy metal and disco. This house is currently working on Irish-Ukrainian-folk-duck, a genre not yet widely recognised.
We saw King Crimson live a couple of months ago in Aylesbury, quite a challenging experience when there are seven people on stage all seeming to play different songs at the same time
A little bit of everything.
John Denver, Abba, Enya, Clannad, Kate Rusby, Armand Amar, Ayub Ogada, The Beach Boys, and little of the Beautiful South, Cara Dillon, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, Hans Zimmer, Loreena McKennitt, Mike Oldfield, Mohicans, Orla, Runrig, Sarah McLachlan, a little Simon & Garfunkel, Terry Gonda, and some Hans Zimmer.
So as you can see a right mixture of whatever appeals to me and I like on the day.
Tomorrow we are flying to Bilbao in Spain, Friday evening we are going to see Kraftwerk live.
Kraftwerk I would love to see.
Beach Boys always make me feel happy.
Sounds like you are same era as me! My daughter likes Kate Bush and went to the recent concert in London. Can't stand her myself. Too ethereal and possibly rather pretentious. The rest I like. And you don't want to hear about the antics I got up to backstage with Mott the Hoople.
Should we ask your age?
I was 3 when we landed on the moon.
I went to school with Methuselah.
And started work before you were born.
