I guess I am similar in the sense of preferring singles to albums. I have never listened to an entire album from lid to lid.
If I had to describe my favorite kind of music (without specifying the genre), I guess I would say simultaneously deep and catchy, with lyrics that at least make sense if not tell a story.

EDIT: I also enjoy some 80s/90s rap, like Warren G's "Regulate" and Tone Loc's "Funky Cold Medina."

And these tend to sample other songs as well.  The former heavily samples Michael McDonald's "I Keep Forgettin" while the latter seems to sample the guitar riff from Foreigner's "Hot Blooded"

I'm a techno, rap, dance, club, rave fan. I hate country although many people where I live like it.

And, of course, "Wild Thing", used a guitar sample from Van Halen. I want to say it was "Jayne's Crying"?

You'd be correct on that one. An uncredited sample, at that.

I've always loved a very wide range of music, including rock, heavy metal, dance music, pop, alternative and even classical. In the past decade or so I've been expanding into a lot of rock precursor music, mostly from the late 1940s and early 1950s.

I've been a Les Paul fan for many years, but until a few years ago I was only familiar with his later music with artists like Chet Atkins. I knew he had famously invented multi-track recording, but for some reason until about 10 years ago I never listened to any of those early recordings he made with his then wife, Mary Ford. But once I started listening to it I quickly realized what a profound impact these pre-rock hits had on later artists, even into the heavy metal era.

Les Paul & Mary Ford introduced the world to the unique sound of multi-track recording (and in the process, lip-syncing on TV) in 1951, with the hit single 'How High The Moon'.


I actually consider How High the Moon to be an early rock song, several years before Bill Haley.

Great stuff that was before its time!

Smooth by Santana/Rob Thomas has become my new favorite song of all time.
It was released in 1999, too, so that makes it even more magical for me since that was the year I was born. I think the '90s would have been a super fun era to grow up in.
Ugh, that song was absolutely everywhere in 1999 and into 2000. The 90s were indeed nice to grow up in, but like every era it had its overplayed songs.
