What is your favorite genre of music?
Rock music, particularly from the 60s, 70s and 80s. However, I do enjoy listening to other genres like classical (but not opera) and jazz.
What is your least favorite genre of music?
Country music (by a country mile). I quite enjoy Bluegrass but unlike the “Good Ol Boys” I don’t care for country or western.
What movie has a very memorable soundtrack?
I loved the music from “The Big Chill” all classic tracks from the 1960s. I also like many of John Williams compositions for movies, yes themes from “Star Wars”, “Star Trek”, “Raiders of the Lost Ark” “Jurassic Park” and many others. A lot of these are played on the classical music radio station I prefer these days.
A favourite film of mine is “Local Hero” from 1983. The soundtrack was by Mark Knopfler and I really like that theme as well.
What are three songs that gets you excited?
I’m not sure if this question means get me excited about listening to them or whether it means I think they are exciting songs.
“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin is one I think of as being exciting music. Quite different but also an exciting piece of music is “Jupiter” from “The Planets Suite”. Finally in another genre altogether “When The Saints Go Marching In” is a very uplifting piece of music.
What was the last song that you listened to?
“Stairway to Heaven” while I was finishing off this post.
