Well.. I listen to a lot of old stuff. Even though I’m only in my 20s. I love discovering bands from the 80s especially.

Old bands I’d suggest you give a go include the Bee Gees – uninformed people laugh and start singing in high pitch voices, but that barely touches the tip of the iceberg – they wrote songs in the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s. They’re incredibly talented songwriters and their music evolved a lot from the disco era. I just love them. Love the Police as well. And Spandau Ballet.

I’m also into opera and love Luciano Pavarotti.

These suggestions probably won’t help you though 😛

I freaking love Rebirth Brass Band and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. I know a ton of people listen to them in NOLA, but I’m from San Diego and no one likes that kinda stuff here.

@MrsTVLover:  Love the XX!

I listen to a wide variety of very strange music so lots and lots of my favorite groups fall into that category.  Some of them include minus the bear, every move a picture, calle 13

@canarydiamond:  I am a child of the 80s and to me, those are all mainstream bands that I knew and loved growing up…and still listen to!  I’m glad that you can appreciate them too!

I really like

-Lykke Lii
-Iron & Wine
-Airborne Toxic Event
-Mumford & Sons
-Band of Horses

My favorite “genre” is rock, classic rock, to be more precise. I am full of knowledge of older bands! Pink Floyd is my absolute favorite of all time. <3

However, I’ll listen to anything that sounds good to me!

@Mrs. Gremmlin:  I saw K’s Choice play a private show at a MALL when I was in junior high.  RANDOM.
