My iPod carries and eclectic mix, everything from Elvis Presley and Patsy Cline to Disturbed, Moby and Jay-Z. But I do have a heck of a lot of Red Hot Chili Peppers, and most of all, someone Michal already mentioned, Sarah McLachlan, who happens to be my absolute favorite singer.

I don't listen while out collecting, just while at home working on and looking over minerals.

So on the Mohs scale for music, where does Heavy Metal go?

Is there an analogy between sedimentary/metamorphic/igneous and classical/jazz/rock?

Why hasn't anyone mentioned country/western?

@ Dean, "we play both kinds of music here, country and western!"

Hi,

Right now I'm listening to Django Reinhart, 1937 guitar and violin jazz. Give a listen.

Best,

Joe

Wow! This is a really interesting thread! Well, I love many classic compositors: Schumann, Bartòk, Sibelius, Bruckner, Gershwin, Grieg, Beethoven, Brahms...Otherwise, I use to listen bands that reminds me my 18-20 years: Ultravox, Icehouse, Kraftwerk, Propaganda, Rush, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Inti Illimani...But I've no limits: I like also to listen Fritz Lang's "Königsjodler" or the extremely sweet voice of Enya! Moreover, I like medieval music...

I go with Bernstein's philosophy....."There is no bad music, only bad players". If well performed, I have no favorites!

Bach. And when not doing mineral related things, Bach (that is, when I don't have to play it). Obvious.

p.s. I met Bernstein once, long time ago, when I was a student, we had a great conversation. He was a fantastic person, but I have to disagree with him; there is such a thing as bad music!

When doing mineral related things, or anything else in life, I am extremely varied in my musical taste. I listen to everything from heavy metal to 50s to country to classical to 80s to just about everything, whatever mood I'm in at the moment.

I use mineral mounting/labeling/cataloging as a time to catch up on podcasts that I listen to. One of the best ways to spend an afternoon if you have a few favorite shows downloaded.
Always the same:

Bob Marley
Frank Sinatra
UB40

Bruce Hornsby (solo, with The Range or the Noise Makers) and Billy Joel are always enjoyable when working with minerals. By the way, Billy Joel has a fantastic album of piano compositions in a classical style.

Neil Young rules! Also: many great 60's-'70s rock and folk oldies (Beatles, Stones, Byrds, Who, Airplane, Spoonful, Judy Collins, Donovan, early acoustic Heart). And a little eclectic newer stuff like Alison Krauss, Adele, Arcade Fire, etc. And many others too numerous to mention! smiling smiley

Gotta add the Ronettes and other incredible "Girl Groups"! Chuck Berry. The Temptations.
