    OK, I love Ibiza-chill music and remixes, women with guitars, African world beat music, Brazilian old and new samba. All time faves include Pink Floyd (another mention), Katie Mellea, Nightmares on Wax, St. Germain, Kygo, Mike Dawes. 
    Sounds like a pretty diverse group here.....

    OMGosh where do I begin?
    Since I grew up in the era, I love most all 80's music.  First real 'rock' band that I became infatuated with, both for their music as well as their commitment to one another as a band, is Def Leppard.  (Listening to them right now, actually)
    Recently I've made the discovery to a bit harder rock (metal) but I'm very particular in which I listen to.  I love Disturbed, and most recently have come to enjoy Five Finger Death Punch.
    There's so much out there to really enjoy though that it's hard to list the ones that you like the best.  Even in my old age, I have a deep respect for Eminem, both story and music as well.
    I enjoy music, as long as I can understand the lyrics.  Consistent yelling or screaming I can do without.  I want to know what the music/song is about, I want to feel what they felt when they wrote it.

    Along with @kltaylor , I'm an 80s kid. I am far more on the pop side of things, but my favorites are Billy Joel, Warren Zevon, and the Barenaked Ladies.
    I'm also a big CCR fan, and I *love* 50s, 60s, and early 70s R&B, along with a healthy dose of yacht rock.

    Thanks, @Mattman , I forgot Billy Joel! I remember seeing him perform once at the NEC in Birmingham in the 1990s. One heck of a concert: What a showman!

    @Pooh I would LOVE to see Billy Joel in concert. I keep trying to see if I can make it work when I travel, but so far it hasn't, and I think his chances of touring Anchorage are slim at this point...

    I saw Billy Joel LIVE during his 'An Innocent Man' tour.
    He put on a great show, one that I will never forget.  One of the most memorable songs that they performed was Goodnight Saigon where he actually asked vets in the crowd to join him on stage to sing the chorus together.  At the beginning of the song, all of the lights went dark, they had the sound system rigged so that the chopping sounds of a helicopter arrived from behind you.  High powered fans blew down along the way, making it more 'real'.  Then a spotlight of him on the piano as he began the song.
    I was quite impressed.

    I have always said that Billy Joel is a performer, set apart from other bands and acts.  He and Elton John fit that classification in my mind.

    That memory has stayed with me throughout the years, it was a great experience.
    Back when you could purchase a concert ticket for $20.
