Something most of you think you'd hate but would actually like

Opera.

 

Years ago I was forced to cover opera for the academic decathlon in high school, we were given a cd to go over, and you know what?  A good chunk of it was pretty damn good.

 

 

I'll prove it to you with a few examples (note, will not work on electronica/trance/techno lovers as you need to like listening to an actual "melody" to appreciate this -

).

 

 

Grand March:

 

 

Seguidilla: (skip to 2m21s)

Toreador:

 

 

Possente Spirto: (this one may be a bit too weird for you all, but it grew on me, like cave moss)

 

 

Anyway, just a few examples.  There is a lot of good stuff, so most of you are secret opera heads.  If not then set me straight!  Especially if you like both this stuff with melody AND that whole metronome like music that just goes OONCE OONCE OONCE OONCE x1000

I thought you meant the browser...

 

Yeah, in some moods, I like Opera, but currently, I've been very much into medium rock.

Fried Chicken. I absolutely detest all things deep fried or with lots of grease, and one day we made fried chicken, and lo and behold, I liked it.

Just answer one question.  Do you like any of the following - trance/techno/electronica/hard metal?

 

Yes to all but also like many other types of music.

 

I can go from James Blunt to The Crystal Method to SOAD to Kryptic Minds.


Nothing to see here - move along.

Umm, not to start a flame war about electronic music but.. trance has no melody?

Partially you're right, some genres of techno and trance are just a beat and a bass line. eg psychic trance...and that's about it. Most trance genres do have a distinctive melody in the songs. Fairly emotional and/or "epic".

 

Might have just been the way you phrased that but just because you might listen to more classical music, it doesn't mean that electronic music is "less music" than classical.

I like opera. My dad is an opera singer.

It's just too boring. People say it's lively but heavy metal is lively, even dubstep and techno (sh*t lol) is more lively than this. And it gives me a headache just sayin.
