There seems to be a very wide range of musical tastes here, based on previous threads. What’s the weirdest piece in your musical collection? How about widest range of taste? On my CD shelf sits “John Denver’s Greatest Hits” right next to the Dead Kennedys “Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables”. I also have hits compilations by Patty Duke and Motorhead. Time-Life’s “Country Classics” series and Black Sabbath. I found an LP called “Music to get C 6th By” at a pawn shop where I used to work. It’s an album to help you tune your steel guitar (which I don’t play). I picked it up because it’s a Beatles song on it! LeAnn Rimes and Elvis cd’s; A Patti Page 45 (“Mockingbird Hill”). A LOT of ABBA, the Beatles, and ELO. Tons on 70’s various artists cd’s and albums (Cheers to you, Rhino Records and K-Tel).
Hehe…well i got some weird combos of my own.
Beatles-Rubber Soul next to Einsturzende Neubauten-Halber Mensch
Peter Gabrial-Last Temptation of Christ next to Coil-Scatology
Vivaldi-Four Seasons next to NIN-Broken.
My CDs are pretty tame. Andrew Lloyd Webber, John Rutter, Chopin, RENT, Godspell, Braveheart. No big surprises.
My MP3s however contain all sorts of stuff. They exhibit heavy influences from my friends (Le Sang being about par on the wierdness scale when it comes to music) happy hardcore, Les Mis, Nena, the dregs of the 80’s, John Denver, Manson, and every delightfully bitchy song I could ever find.

Quite a wide range of music interests, I would say. In my other folder I have CD’s ranging from the Soundtracks of The Lion King to Queen to the soundtrack to Beetlejuice to Pink Floyd.
I don’t think my music collection is all that varied as yours, but then I’ve had time to get used to it…

Another Andrew Lloyd Webber collector checking in. Only odd thing is the different languages. Want all three Japanese Phantom of the Operas, all three German Starlight Expresses,
or the Russian Jesus Christ Superstar?
