Some years ago I listened to mostly pop rock, jazz, classical and to a lesser extent, hip hop/rap. I also listened to slow jam, a sub genre of r&b. Of all the music I listen to, my favourite artists are Alicia Keys, Adele, Keshia Chante, Jack Johnson, Leona Lewis and that's it I guess. A few of the the artists I used to like such as Rihanna, Ciara and Ashanti. I don't seem to like Rihanna as much as I did in the past is because I find her music vulgar these days (I mean she sings about how she likes being degraded) and I didn't like the fact that she went back to her boyfriend who had abused her before. I don't know what's with her. Previously when I first heard her music, she had a sweet personality, I thought I liked her songs and now she has become more...I don't know what to say. She's changed a lot. Sometimes I miss the way she was, for I was a former fan. For Ashanti, she's not much of my musical tastes as I felt she's not as famous as other singers.

And Ciara, I don't buy her album. Ten years ago I heard her song Goodies and it was sort of my favourite song. Up until now I think to me, she's sort of a crunk version of Aaliyah, as people can't stop comparing her to Aaliyah.

I also used to like JLo until I realize what a selfish hypocrite she is. How could she write a song Love Don't Cost a Thing and had a boyfriend who was way younger than her for her own gain, which I think she acts like she can't live without a man.

And Beyoncé, I don't like her anymore. All these years she sung about female empowerment and how women don't need a man to please and now she said bow down B****** I think and sings about getting drunk and talking trash. I find her hypocritical at times.

I used to like Nelly Furtado. Back in the day she was one of the most popular singers on the chart and her early albums were so good. I don't like her recent album. For me it's not what I used to like. I don't seem to like pop nowadays. I think I prefer music from the '90s until recently.

my personal favorite is the late, great Marty Robbins. Not only a wonderful singer, but he was a very good race car driver.
Eddie Rabbitt is another favorite, gone too soon from the world. :cry: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryzIX09s2o4[/youtube]
Kentucky Rain was written by Eddie if you don't know this.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxTD9YVDd38[/youtube]

You don't listen to her music because she's not famous enough?

Here are some of my favorite singers:

Morrissey
Lou Reed
Michael Stipe
Paul Westerberg
Jello Biafra
Joey Ramone
Joe Strummer
George Harrison
David Gilmour
Ian Brown

In general, I listen to rock music from the 60s, 70s & 80s, and I enjoy punk, alternative rock & post-punk. I've been listening to a lot of 60s music recently, and I'm trying to get into the Byrds & Cream.

I didn't know Eddie Rabbit died.

I remember one time I was at a famous rodeo to hear him sing, but he got drunk and canceled. They put a guy none of us had ever heard of in his place and we were all really mad. Then this guy comes out singing a white horse and took the house down. That was George Strait's big lucky break! He was so cool on that horse!
