    Default Demographic #4: Favorite musical genres and periods

    This one may interest you more than the others so far, especially because it will be more broad than other musical surveys you may have seen here. Think of it in terms of what you listen most to, not what you more neutrally like or what you find agreeable or respectable.

    I voted for everything except pop, country, and regional pop that you ought to mention.

    What about various genres of rock or electronic music? Surely those deserve their own category, as with country, instead of being lumped under "pop."

    Avant garde, baroque, classical, traditional music from eastern Europe, and traditional Irish music mainly.
    It's the greed of huge companies and huge organizations which control life in a kind of a brutal way ... It's gotten worse and worse, somehow, because physical science has given us more and more terrible deadly weapons, and the human spirit has been destroyed in so many cases, so what's the use of having the most powerful country in the world if we have killed the soul.

    There are lots of 20th century styles unfortunately missing.

    At least metal definitely deserves a category of its own.

    Yep, sorry about that. If it's enough of a corn cob stuck up the you-know-where than let us all know about the different 20th century genres you like. I'll tally it somewhere and note it for you all once this thread starts to die down.

    this poll is just "a little bit" classical-centric.

    And no jazz? Far and away the deepest genre outside of classical.

    Yeah, sorry about that. We may want to try this again later after people have mentioned the different things they like. I thought those options would probably cover semi-decent for this crowd, and wasn't as sure of this one. But I did like it better in terms of broadness compared to other musical interest polls I've seen here.

    Traditional music (flute, drum etc) from the peoples of north america, traditional music of the Shona people from Zimbabwe (Mbira) and the trad. music(s) from West Africa (kora, ngoni, Fula flute etc) Griot music, Trad music (yidaki/mago) from the Northern Territory of Australia~I play (dabble) most of the instruments listed above. When not listening to those I am consumed with baroque, renaissance and lately medival (harp) music....
    Peace

    I'd rate my own preferences as

    1. Classical
    2. Jazz
    3. Pop
    4. World / New Age

    Broken down into:

    1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, 1e. (tied) Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern, and Contemporary
    1f. Renaissance and Medieval - though I hope to get that up to tied with 1a-e soon.

    2a. 1945-1970
    2b. 1970-present
    2c. 1920-1945

    3a. Rock
    3b & 3c. Blues, and Country (especially prior to c. 1980; aside from Johnny Cash, very little later than that)
    3d & 3e. Folk; and Techno and electronica

    4a & 4b. Indian Classical Music; and other "world music": i.e. Nonesuch's Explorer Series; the music of Islam, etc.
    4c. World music fusion: i.e. Putumayo Presents, etc. (most of this really should count as pop)
    4d. "Pure New Age": i.e. Enya, Yanni, Clannad, etc.

    Ranking each of those subcategories relative to each other according to about how much time I'd guess I spend listening to them:

    A: 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d
    B: 1e, 2a
    C: 1f, 2b, 3a
    D: 2c, 3b, 3c
    E: 3d, 3e, 4a, 4b
    F: 4c, 4d

    Thank you for putting that as your least favourite.
