Some believe the music we listened to tells us everything we need to know about someone’s past. Does the music we are listening to now dictate our future?

    Let’s see here… i grew up listening to Elvis, Michael Jackson, country-western music, some light rock. Currently I listen to smooth jazz when I have to listen to something. TBH, I prefer silence to music.

    Does musical past this say anything about me? Not particularly.

    No, it can predict it. Depending on the person, I believe. For anyone, it can influence good, bad, or neutral behavior.

    Frankly, something I am normally not open about except on this forum, my favorite music is the Doors, in terms of “music I used to listen to”. And with them, just a handful of songs are the ones I still listen to.

    There are songs I try and bury, as I change seasons of my life. Some keep coming up again.

    Led Zeppelin, I used to listen to a lot as a teenager, but I have not much listened to them since that time.

    I like a wide range of music, and am extremely introverted (extroverted at times), because my “religion” I keep at the heart level, so manage the good and bad there. Music hits at the heart, so it brings back memories sometimes forgotten of another age.

    I do not think, however, that any of my current favorite songs is something anyone who does not know me could decipher how I read the lyrics.

    I do, of course,

      @five2one yeah, I think our place in life and our feelings about life definitely have something to do with it.

    I grew up with an uncle who basically only listened to country. Never really liked it aside from a few songs, though they were really the only songs I knew. There was classical music from Tom and Jerry. There was the opera my aunt listened to from time to time. Brother listening to Korn, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails (Korn and MM scared me, lol.) Once I got a bit older though, I started liking more of Nickelback, Creed, Staind, Three Doors Down (basically the top songs on the top hits radio station.) Got a bit older and got into Three Days Grace, Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, Linkin Park, Saliva. I had games growing up like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Burnout that had some great songs. I got back into them later. Rise Against was one of them which became a favorite. My then-girlfriend was playing Lindsey Stirling once and she became a favorite as well. Got into some electronic music. Those with that 80’s vibe really have been hitting the spot lately.

    Overall, listened to some basic rock growing up, which shifted to hard rock mostly with some alt rock and punk rock. It has shifted a bit since then, but still contains most of them plus things like some EDM, classical, hip hop/rap. Even like Korn and MM a bit now, lol.

      @Yin wow, that is quite the variety. why do you think everybody complains about nickel back? I am not sure how much the music we listened to says about us. I know I listened to a lot of codependent love songs back in the day. Now I love piano music to relax me!

        @Scarlett I never really understood the utter hatred the band got. I kind of got tired of most of it since it does seem to be more generic kind of songs. It was like they were made with the same kind of effort or mindset pop songs are, where they are just catchy without much substance. That’s fine, but it got old to me. It may be where the hatred comes from as well, which maybe Chad Kroger apparently saying that he was in it for the money and fame may have hurt them as well.

        A number of the songs you can get a grasp of who I am. Some songs with a little anti-religious message. (Wouldn’t really classify them as anti-religious since that sounds a bit harsh and preachy even, but not sure what you’d call that.) Some are depressing and few even suicidal. Some are the opposite though. Just last night, I found an Indian folk metal song that I really enjoy about not killing yourself and living. I mean, it is quite random what I will and won’t listen to sometimes.

        I love me some piano. I know it isn’t just piano, but ‘A fuoco’ by Ludovico Einaudi is probably my favorite piece, at least if we are talking about modern pieces.

    When I was younger, I listened to KNX talk radio. I liked it because it was the news of the day without music. Now I listen to KFI talk radio, which is the news topics of the day. Except at night there is a program called Coast to Coast that I never miss. Coast to Coast has odd subjects and paranormal subjects. I fall asleep to it and dream weird dreams.
