I tend to listen to two types of music:

1) Broadway showtunes/cast albums. I probably have 100-300 cast albums in my collection, some rare, some new.

2) Folk music, especially Peter Paul and Mary, Tom Paxton, and the Austin Lounge Lizards. The opening of my recent list ( http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi... ) should have given a clue to this interest; one of the versions of the song was recorded by Mary Travers on her solo-album Mary.

As for other music ... well, I'll occasionally listen to pop, jazz, drum corps, modern Jewish music (Debbie Friedman, Rick Recht, etc.). I'm not into rap, gangsta, etc.

Oh, and for you youngsters out there, obcomment: "And the music they listen to these days, it's just noise."

Wow, I just had to participate in this one, just to help prove that geeks aren't all Rush fanatics. Or new age fans. I swear, this one game store I frequent is constantly playing the absolute worst Windham Hill crap every time I go in. When we game, we listen to: Gang of Four (check the picture), Wire, The Fall, Joy Division/New Order, Echo and the Bunnymen, David Bowie, British Sea Power, Prince, Discharge, Gary Numan/Tubeway Army, Killing Joke, The Faint, Rapture, Iggy Pop/Stooges, the Clash, Frank Tovey/Fad Gadget, Einsturzende Neubauten, Napalm Death, Nick Cave/Birthday Party, Mercyful Fate, Voivod, Kraftwerk, Roxy Music, SPK, Throbbing Gristle, on and on...I'm a music geek as much as a boardgame geek!
