I’m collecting some data for a Sociology assignment I’d like some American dopers to please reply to this thread with their state of residence and favorite musical Genre. Thanks much!
Georgia – Classic (60’s/70’s) rock
New York State.
Peruvian patriotic zither music, and ska.
Hang on, the demographic’s just shifted.
Cajun zydeco or anything by Gilbert & Sullivan.
Texas - classical, metal, reggae
Virginia – metal, classic rock
Virginia – rock, rap
Midwest (originally St Louis area, now Omaha and about 3 years in the south).
I’d guess 90% of the bands I listen to you could classify as Classic Rock or punk or metal.
TN - Blues, Classic Rock, 70’s Soul
Georgia - religious (contemporary Christian/Catholic).
Second runner up is classical - Beethoven lately.
New York. Rap.
Alabama: early Rock ‘N’ Roll, Blues, Country from the era of Hank Williams and Kitty Wells through Nanci griffith and Old 97’s.
Central Florida - British progressive rock and German avant-garde industrial, intersped with trip-hop and classic classical (y’know, Wagner and Ludwig van Beethoven - recommended by street punks who dress strangely and speak Nadsat everywhere :)). Examples: EinstÃ¼rzende Neubauten, Portishead, Depeche Mode, the Beatles and Pink Floyd.
I like a whole lot of different stuff, bu my favorite is Techno
Illinois - Country music, no specific period or style
I will give my native state, because the state where I currently reside (I moved here recently) has had absolutely no influence on my musical tastes.
California (Los Angeles area), Classical all the way, baby.
Oh, and I suppose I should mention film music - as in film score. (Ennio Morricone, John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Maurice Jarre, etc.) Since this music usually was only played on the Classical station (the late lamented KFAC) I consider it generally lumped into the “Classical” category.
Alabama: Celtic, bluegrass, jazz/Broadway, alternative rock, classical, classic rock.
AZ- classical, 70’s & 80’s rock
Texas- Hard rock, metal, industrial, German.
