Songs you like that aren't of a musical style you prefer.
« on: August 23, 2007, 01:27:11 PM »
I'm not the biggest hip hop/R&B fan here. I'm mostly into alot Gothic Metal, especially from European band like Within Temptation and Nightwish, but I'm finding myself really liking Rihanna's hit song Umbrella alot.

I guess I might like this song because there's a bit of a metal riff in the melody or something, but it really goes against the grain of my preferred musical tastes. Are there any songs you guys listen to that totally goes against the style of music you prefer?
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

This is hard for me, because I have a wide musical spectrum. However, I hate all country, no exceptions. Rockabilly is OK with me though.

I really liked Justin Timberlake's "Summer Love", if that counts.

I guess that would count if you don't ordinarily like Justin Timberlake.

My Music range consists of Classic Rock, Rock, 80's-90's Rock & Pop, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, to Techno and Trance.
A lot of my music preferences can be catagorized in multiple areas.

I like Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden and I'm not really into that sort of rock.

And Fighter by Christina Aguilera; great set of pipes on that girl.

Oh and Bye Bye Bye by N*Sync and Backstreet's Back by The Backstreet Boys Never Mind about those :-[

I like 'Children of the Damned' on that same album..
I've been a Huge Iron Maiden fan since the early 80's.. After 'Fear of the Dark, they lost me until 2000 when 'A Brave New World' came out

I don't like country but I love The Devil Went Down to Georgia.
I hate rap, but I own most of Eminem's discography.
I'm not into metal, but I like Blind Guardian. (Some would say those two statements can peacefully coexist, though.)

Why? To bring all the boys to the graveyard?  :)

Son of a Preacher Man by Dusty Springfield, but mostly cuz Cypress Hill used a sample of the song for Hits From The Bong.  I don't like Dusty Springfield of Rap that much so it's even weirder.
