Extremes in music on your iPod

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I am home from work again today and bored out of my mind I have spent a good part of the last 2 hours organizing the music on my iPod and adding a few cds I hadn't yet. I found myself cracking up at the wide variety of music I have. I was trying to figure out the 2 extremes, or 2 artists that are completely opposite in all aspects. I think I have to go with Sarah McLaughlan and Marilyn Manson Wow! Can anyone top that?

I just made a CD last night - that starts out with Stevie Wonder - Isn't She Lovely - and ends with Ludacris - Come See Me. Lots of variety in between

Thats totally opposite of eachother - but I like to have a variety on my cds

lol Mine is nothing but extremes...I have video game music alongside anime soundtracks and musicals like Phantom of the Opera and Miss Saigon, everything from Sarah Brightman to Japanese pop singers, American rock, and Chinese rappers! A couple of songs in Spanish, lots of Christian music, and I need to update it with more Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit!

Hmmm, my weirdest combo would be Jay-Z and Trisha Tearwood

I always laugh when I'm at the gym listening to it, and I'll be listening to some hip hop..and then the next song will be Shania Twain or something..What a weird switchover

I had a shuffle go from Pink Floyd to Kitaro. The strange thing was that they were very compatible.

Since my husband and I have been collecting music for the last 25 years, I have to say we have a diverse collection so how to pick the extremes?

Celine Dion and The Dead Milkmen
Brittany Spears and Megadeth
Alison Krauss and Stone Temple Pilots
Squirrel Nut Zippers and The Muppets

I love the Dave Ramsey podcast so we keep it on the iPod...with music. Dave Ramsey is really great to listen to. He is a financial advisor but not boring to listen to at all! He's got quite a sense of humor. I highly recommend him . Now I wish Clark Howard would get a podcast.....

I have you all beat -- my ipod has a hefty collection of Duke Wellington on it, as well as MegaDeath and Cocteau Twins (anyone ever heard of them????) (from one extreme to another).

Shuffle could go from Dwight Yoakum to The Pixies to Chinese pop songs to Edith Piaf and on again to Tom Waits. I don't believe in listening to any one kind of music.

Actually, this topic makes me remember that when I first moved to Taiwan I couldn't stand Mando-Pop (pop music in Mandarin Chinese, it sounded too sacarine. Now it some of it doesn't bother me a bit, and some of it I love! )

I don't have an iPod either but in my computer my downloaded stuff goes from Canon in D to Slayer! My CD collection has anything from the Legend of Zelda CD to Megadeth.

I have a huge variety! I just got my IPOD Video for my birthday and just loaded it up.

I have everything from
the Guys and Dolls Soundtrack
to Cradle of Filth
to a cool Japanese song from the video game Suikoden 3
to Dave Matthews Band
to Ray Charles (a song from the anime Metropolis)
to Sigur Ros (who sings in Icelandic and a made up language I believe)
to Lost: Season 2
to my favorite podcast show called Sowerby and Luff's Big Squeeze from Comedy 365 (British Comedy Show is really pretty good, check it out)

Wow! You guys have some great music on yours. In some ways it bugs me because I feel my iPod is unorganized. I just made several play lists today. I set them up as genre favorites (ex: country favorites, alternative favorites, etc). I do enjoy just hitting shuffle on the entire playlist most of the time though. It is funny because one second I could be listening to Enya, then Usher plays, and then it could be Nine Inch Nails

I am glad I am not the only one with extremes. I have many Korean/Chinese pop also (which are not all that extreme)- Canon in D (Classical) to The Strokes to OutKast . You name it, except for Country . I have even developed an appreciation for rap on some level (rap in Mandarin/Korean is good ). I just made Stephanie, Linda and Danielle listen to my latest fave song (which is a few years old ) last night. This guy is super talented - US born - parents from Taiwan.

I hope the link works.

Enya to Social Distortion!

The Bach Unaccompanied Cello Suites are for some reason RIGHT NEXT to Kanye West's album Late Registration on my iTunes library....sort of an abrupt change...

I have everything, though. The only two things I WILL NOT under any circumstances listen to are smooth jazz/easy listening and (sorry guys!) country.

K is Kiss

M is for Mary Chapen Carpenter , Micheal Bolton, Motley Crue, Methods of Mayhem

Nine Inch Nails, Placebo, and Tool at one end of the spectrum and Les Misraeble and the Silent Hill 3 soundracks at the other.

I don't have an ipod yet. Now that I know you can put books on tape on them I totally want one. My CD player in my car currently has the new Goo Goo Dolls cd, a Bane cd (a hardcore band), and a Stavesacre cd (a christian rock band).
