Your Favorite Music Genre?

Is there such a thing as a music genre that is most liked around the world (even if by a small amount)? If so which would it be?

In my expirience hanging out with different types of people from all over the world, Reggae is almost rarely disliked.

Re: Most Popular Music Genre?

well you could have made the poll a question "what is your favorite music genre" and you will get the answer for MTF's most popular music genre which will give you more or less a global idea, every country (or more accurately "culture") has it's own musical heritage and culture and has it's own popular genre(s).

Re: Your Favorite Music Genre?

I voted Rock, mainly for my love of "Classic Rock". I guess that term is somewhat vague, but I'm always happy to be listening to The Beatles, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, The Who, etc.

I'm also a big fan of what I guess you would call "New Age". That is my preferred genre when I just want to relax. Recently, I've discovered that listening to solo piano by George Winston can be very soothing in really bad rush hour traffic.

Re: Your Favorite Music Genre?

I have voted pop... but then I also like The Beatles and The Who and other 60s bands and I would consider them to be pop rather than rock in most instances so it's hard to actually vote. My taste falls somewhere between pop and rock.

My favourite music era is the early 80s stuff by bands like Human League and Duran Duran which would fall into the pop category, but my favourite band is Muse which is classed as rock.

Re: Your Favorite Music Genre?

Jazz nearly edges out (Classic) Rock. I like rock alot, but I think jazz has a better rhythm.

Yep, I'm not always sure whether to denote something as pop or rock. I tend to think of pop as something that is played frequently on mainstream radio, and doesn't easily slot into a more specific category. So, off the top of my head...James Taylor is someone I would consider as a great popular artist. His music can appeal to a lot of different folks, and you can easily hear his songs everywhere, from restaurants to doctor's offices.

One of my other favorites is Joni Mitchell, but she never had the mainstream appeal of James Taylor, and probably would fit somewhat into the folk category.

The Beatles had mainstream popularity, but I guess my mind wants to put them in the Classic Rock category. Maybe that's just how much I like their music, that I feel the need to put them in my favorite category.

Re: Your Favorite Music Genre?

I voted "rock" because I guess it's the closest thing to alternative/punk (and some metal).

Mugs have feelings too.
