    I tend to like the "heavy" stuff. It pumps me up and motivates me when doing bagwork and the like.

    If I'm feeling 'old school' I will access my infinite Iron Maiden collection or maybe listen to Pantera. If I want more modern I will break out with some Clutch, Skindred, 36 Crazy Fists, etc...

    Favorite 70's song? 'Kung-Fu Fighting' of course!

    Favorite 80's song? Don't know....

    I always thought it would be cool to do an escrima form to Sepultura's song "Rahamatata."....... lot's of drums...=) If you've never heard it you should download it. You may find yourself jumping around and bouncing off the walls. LOL.

    From the 70's I love listening to Meatloaf Bat Out of Hell can still kick some butt.

    From the 80's I liked the Phil Collins and the Cars

    I like to listen to Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Toby Kieth, Johnny Cash, Aerosmith, and some classical music.

    In the past I competed with Jan Hammer's theme from Top Gun, Flight of the Bumble Bee, music from the movie Only The Strong, and Aerosmith's Living on the Edge.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    There is nothing wrong with a little Johnny Cash or Ray Charles

    Being a classically trained musician, I have been exposed to ALL sorts of music. Had to study most of it actually...

    What I listen to depends on what I'm doing.

    Training - high intensity stuff to do cardio, lower, more mellow stuff for stretching and breathing exercises...Clutch(<that's all Celtic Crippler's fault) for cardio will definately get you going.
    For practicing forms, I train with Josh Groban. His songs flow really well and it helps me with timing.

    I love jazz... none of the Kenny G pansy-a$$ stuff, but real jazz... Billy Childs, Chris Botti, Michael Buble, Ella Fitzgerald, Renee Olstead, Dave Koz...it's what I love to sing...

    But music I listen to for pleasure, hum, let me think...
    DMB (mainly older DMB stuff)
    Ray Charles
    Jack Johnson
    Sarah MacLachlin
    Otis Redding
    No Doubt

    Somewhere along the way I get pop stuff stuck in my head as well as some rap, so I give it all a chance.
    To sleep I turn on NPR and listen to whatever they have going.

    Um, that is all.
    "Second chances they don't never matter, people never change
    Once a whore you're nothing more i'm sorry that'll never change
    And about forgiveness, we're both supposed to have exchanged
    I'm sorry honey, but i'm passing up, now look this way...*" --Paramore "Misery Business"

    I'm a little bit country and a little bit rock-n-roll (though not a big Osmond fan)

    I also like Jazz and Classical since I played both in HS.
