    I like heavy music, it soothes me in a way I can't explain. But it's all musical, rhythm, tempo, vocals (even if you don't enjoy them), but I know how you feel. I used to deny that Rap was music until someone very important to me explained what music is.
    I was trained in music and it's hard to throw away that training in order to listen to a type of music. Notes are really important to me, and when those are taken away, it's hard for me to think of it as music. I have a hard time with a lot of rap as well. I know that technically they're music but it's hard for me to think of it that way in my head. The thing I don't like about most rap is that if you listen to it without thinking about what the words mean, like if it was just gibberish lyrics, it's not very interesting, the words are absolutely *crucial* for it to make its point--don't get me wrong, there are some rap songs I really get into, especially when I can clearly understand the lyrics.

    My mind is racing most of the time about stuff I'd rather not think about. When I hear grunty screaming cookiemonster-vocals metal with guitars that have so much distortion that notes aren't really a thing anymore, it makes me feel anxious and uncomfortable, something I take medications to try to calm.
    Sorry--but I do not accept the idea that being intolerant of intolerance is THE SAME THING as being intolerant of anything else.

    This was probably 25 years ago, but I was involved in the band scene for a while in my day. Buddy of mine was into this progressively hardcore musician career route. He went to Fla then to CA, cut a few CD's but never got anywhere with it.

    Anyway, I was never into the real hard stuff and I was hanging out at one of his rehearsals and during a break I jumped up behind the mic and started grunting out some shit just to fuck around. They wanted me to consider singing for them.

    Yeah, right.

    Hah - your thread dude.

    You have a pretty distinctive voice and it sounds like you can use it. Smithereens-ish?

    Not a bad tune at all.

    Oh, another one:

    Blade Runner -- Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (get the REAL one by Vangelis not the orchestra one)

    I feel the same way about heavy metal, but respect those who do like it.

    I have never been able to get into rap at all and wonder why it has to always be played so fucking loud.

    Anything else is a go, classical, jazz, pop and rock...although I have a hard time with military bagpipe music....one song and I'm usually done.

    I like good banjo work and love a well played steel peddle guitar. I have absolutely no musical background whatsoever...

    In told this story to IgetitAlready:

    I have a deep baritone voice and decided I wanted to learn to sing. A German woman, classical songstress agreed to give me some lessons. I think she was a bit in love with me because she hated teaching and especially adults. So I went to her place and she played a note on the piano and asked me to sing it. I did. Then she played another note and again I sand it. This happened several times and each time she would go "hmmmm, interesting."
    When she was done she turned to me and asked "who told you, you were a bass?" I looked at her not understanding and she continued "You sang each note perfectly...one octave low."
    "What's an octave?" I asked. I think that was where she stopped being in love with me.
    I tried out for a Barbershop Shop Singer's group who said they could teach anyone. They kicked me out a month later. Staying in key for me is like walking from Nome to Cleveland....in the winter......naked.

    I listen and when no one is anywhere around I sing along. The only song I can sing all the way through and stay sort of in key is the Battle Hymn of the Republic. Consequently I am not in big demand for sing alongs and avoid kareoke at all cost.
