    I think @davenn pretty much hit the nail on the head with that list. As said, dozens more too. I am 52 and would add 80s to the list.
    I’ve been enjoying freeview channel Now 80s while soldering and tinkering.
    During the 80s and 90s, I ran a successful mobile disco. So my music taste is truly universal. I still have all my vinyl records too. Approx 15000.

    But for internet music (or noise), a chap on Yourube uses floppy disk drives and HDDs about 100 of them.

    The early 90's : Didn't like any music, most of it I considered noise.
    After mid 90's : Discovered Trance music and got completely hooked. Sadly nobody around me understood and just think it was weird.
    first part of the 2000 : Found the Nightwish band and got completely hooked.

    I listen to way too much Coheed & Cambria. If not that then classical piano and violin.

    Now there's a question.
    I have very broad taste in music including Classical, R&B, bit of Punk, Instrumental, Soul, Reggae and much more.
    Don't like country music or the modern idiom.
    A lot of my taste is buried in the 60's and 70's and some of the 80's.
    Bands I like: The Stones. Fleetwood Mac, The Who, The Kinks, The Searchers, The Yardbirds (From whence Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck came), ABBA,
    The La's, The Beach Boys, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Dave Brubeck, R.E.M., Mike and the Mechanics, Elvis Costello, The Shadows (I played in a Shadows tribute band many years ago). I could go on and on.

    Classical Composers: Prokofiev, Particularly his Romeo and Juliet score, Elgar, Holst, Saint Saens, Liszt, Handel, Kachaturian, Sibeleus, Grieg, Dimitri Shostakovich (you must listen to his piano concerto No 2), plus many more.

    Not the cr#p played at high volume in the workshop at work by the young guys who can't tell the difference between music and noise!

    Hello,

    Here is a real life version of one of the instruments that I posted from animusic:

    I came across this duo just surfing utube for music. They are an extremely talented pair of young musicians who use utube to play their music. Following the links from this utube I found a whole lot of excellent acoustic pop rock folk renderings by a bunch of young musicians
    Reina del Cid and Toni Lindgren

    I really like this rocked up version of a classic by Leonard Cohen. (Well all of his are classics!)
    First We take Manhatton.

    As this is an electronics forum, we have to pay homage to Joe Meek, one of the early innovating music engineers and producers over here in the UK just before and during the big Brit pop explosion early 60's . Extremely influential with his recording techniques, not only with his tape techniques but also his mic and guitar effects units. The Joe Meek compressor is an expensive bit of kit still sold today. Whether or not it merits its rather extravagant price probably depends on if you have backing from a record company I would think!

    Anyway, Shane Fenton and the Fentones hit, I'm a Moody Guy from way back in 1961 (Yes, I was there!) was very influential in my interest in electronics with the sound and tone of the guitar. Possibly tape echo with a spring reverb?

    Rock On, Joe!

    And possibly Joe Meeks biggest hit. From 1962, Telstar, to celebrate the launch of the first communications satellite between the UK and USA. I remember watching the commissioning and first link up of Telstar live on TV here in the UK. It took quite a bit of knob twiddling to get the thing fired up. Very adventurous on live TV. But they got there in the end and look at the comms industry nowadays!! Something that I'm sure kids of today take completely for granted.

    A friend of mine that I have know since infants school, is a musician who plays drums and bass (not at the same time) and did some session work for Joe. He reckons that it was all done in an old 3 story house with the "studio" on the top floor which was the bit that he rented from the old lady that owned it.
    He was a bit of an odd ball by all accounts. Backing singers would often work standing on the stair case between floors. It was also not unusual to see names from the period at the house.
    Joe could neither read or write music and had to hum the tune for Telstar to one of his cohorts after have the tune rattle around his head for a few days. No doubting that it was a good tune though.

    If one looks at Joe Meek's Wiki entry it tells of his mental illness which sadly resulted in his and his landlady's death. A sad loss of this pioneering person.

    Have just re-discovered a piece by Percy Grainger 1882 to 1961,an English composer, called Handel in the Strand. Originally called Clog Dance but the composer changed it. It is really jaunty little piece of music of just over 4 mins' long and gets me grinning from ear to ear. There are many arrangements of it out there. Below are links to just two of them.




    Enjoy
