>"Me? It's difficult to describe my musical preference. I listen to everything! XD"
>>
Good for you, best way.
>>
>>61910814
Basicly that kid who listens to edm, pop, hip-hop and dadrock,
>>
I'll take "what you reply to normies you're uncomfortable around" for $3,50
>>
>>61910814
If you do actually like a lot of types of music about equally, what's the best way of saying it?
>>
>>61910850
this.
"Everything" usually means about 4-6 specific genres
>>
My immediate response at that point is "do you listen to harsh wall noise, avant-garde and industrial?". They usually clarify what exact genres they listen to after being mindfucked by shit they've never heard of.
>>
>>61910875
I'll give it a shot.

"Me? It's difficult to describe my music taste. Basically pop music, but more psychedelic and progressive music than anything. I also love most genres of jazz. I only really like a few selected pre-20th century pieces. Avant-garde/experimental is awesome too. I guess you could say my music taste is reasonably broad."
>>
>>61910875
"I listen to music I like."
>>
>>61911009
excellent taste my good sir *tips*
>>
>>61910981
>avant-garde is a genre
everything except pop and country
>>
>>61911098
Fair enough
>>
>>61910850
nah not really people like that listen to whatever is considered cool by vast majority of their peers.

Friend tried to say justin timberlake's futuresex/lovesounds was bad. but thinks luke bryan and ed sheeran are music genius.

>>61910875
depends on who you're talking too is how u say it.

If i'm talking to a older person I'll mention pink floyd and frank zappa, miles davis

girl: I'll say shit like chvrches and black flag. but thats only if Im interesting in being friends with them, can't scare people off or act like I'm some kind of music autist. everybody has their own taste I will respect theirs.
>>
>>61911009
>Avant-garde/experimental is awesome too
lmao
>>
Ok, I'll narrow the playing field for you, OP. I hate country, bluegrass, folk, blues, r&b, rock-n-roll and soul. Everything else is on the table.
>>
>>61911009
this post is either ironic or the most underage shit ive seen in a while
>>
I just say that I listen to "weird shit"

People don't care
>>
>>61911098
the only true answer
>>
>>61911339
>Really? So do I! Do you like BVB too?
>>
>>61911009
The person asking would have gotten bored and left by the time you get to "psychedelic".
>>
>>61911374
I have never met anyone who has mentioned that band before
>>
anything but pop punk,edm and hip hop
>>
>>61910875
I usually say 'I enjoy almost all kinds of music but recently ive been listening to a lot of [genre]'
I think its polite enough while also making way for a followup question if they are actually interested in music
>>
>>61911339
>You like weird music? Have you listened to Grimes? She is such a weirdo! XP
>>
I've been in that situation recently and struggled not to give a pretentious answer, but in such situations I find it hard to not say everything, cause I basically just listen to everything that makes a sound. But then the person asked multiple times, but if you had to specify on one genre, what would it be?
How do you react to that question, because that person just didn't get the concept of not listening to music by genre.
>>
>>61910875
I say that I listen to a lot of different kinds of music, but then add that recently I've been listening to whatever.

You know, you can just answer these questions honestly.

>>61911503
just say whatever u want
remember people don't care about you. they're too busy worrying about themselves. unless they really like you,they're hoping you name something they already know,. if not they dont care
>>
>>61911531
Same guy as >>61911479

I would reply with "Yes, I have. It's alright. But I don't really think her music is that weird."

See, I can be normal too.

Then you rec her Ground Zero, Keiji Haino and Taj Mahal Travellers

At a pre-party last weekend

>some slut:Me? It's difficult to describe my musical preference. I listen to everything! XD
>me:Oh? Can you name any of your favourite bands or albums?
>she:I mainly just have a ton of songs on my ipod. I have like 12 Bon Iver songs lol

At that point I turned 360° and walked away

>tfw too patrician to get laid
>>
>>61911603
Nah dude I'd recommend something like Improvised Music From Japan, a 10-disc, 11-hour box set.
>>
>>61911505
This is what I say as well.

I usually tailor the 'whatever' to who I'm taking to, though. I mean maybe I've been listening to a lot of metal lately, but if I'm talking to some folkie chick of course I'm gonna say 'woody guthrie'

You can call it lying, I call it being a good conversationalist
>>
>>61911462
>no pop punk
Faggot
>>
>>61911634
Hope you didn't knock her over, my good man.

shes a slut cause she likes bon iver?

What are your favourite bands?

Just say the one that you specialise the most in. Don't say everything because you've listened to, say, 5 albums in jazz, electronic, punk, metal and blues music. I listen to a range but I always say underground dance music when asked because it's the area I'm into and know about most.
>>
But I do. How do I know if I like it if I don't give it a shot?
>>
>>61910814
dude, today is french pop, last week was disco, a month ago it was southern hip hop, next week im planning to go through some college rock bands, and The Books fill in the spare time. what the hell do i listen to
>>
>>61910875
This is a problem that I have.
Sometimes I just say "radio music". Its not worth it.
>>
>>61911669

>>61910875
Say that you like a bunch of stuff but then pick something in particular
Saying you like everything and leaving it at that doesn't give much in the way of conversation

>>61911009
I've no fedora in home but I've got a coppola and I've tipped it right now, good job.

If you turned 360° you were just in front of her again.

Do you often find people turning around and walking away from you when you try and talk to them?
>>
>>61914396
No, but they do often turn suddenly on the spot 360° and walk right into me.
>>
>>61914471

I hope you're some other anon trying to make a joke instead of actually that guy.
>>
>>61910875
>What kind of music do you like anon?
Anything and everything, really. Why what do you like?

how to answer without sounding autistic
>>
>>61910875
nobody except autists on /mu/ gives a shit, just say you listen to a lot of different stuff
>>
>>61910875
Say you like anything as long as it's good.

you sound fun

Why am I not surprised?
>>
>>61910981
Do you even know what avant-garde is?
>>
>>61911009
God, at first I thought you had the right answer but you fucked it up in your explanation.


>>61910875
The true correct way to say that would be "I'm willing to give every genre a fair shot."

If they start asking for specific bands, you can list a couple that are from a broad range which tells the listener you have a wide interest range. That way you open up further conversation topics for them such as "have you ever heard x? You should check them out".

>>61915674
>>61914027
>>61911706
It's fucking bait, you dinguses.
>>
>>61911009
This is actually a good answer if the person you're asking is genuinely interested in your music taste

I just like to say that I have an eclectic music taste, and that I try my best to listen to as much music as possible. Usually this is a segway into saying what I've been listening to lately.
>>
>>61910875
In the US, if I say I like Techno, people will assume I like Skrillex.
>>
>>61917906
They are just terrified kids worried that someone will say to them "ha! pleb". Worried that all the effort they put in cultivating their taste will be shown up as fake when they meet a bigger patrician. They can't bring themselves to say they like The Beatles, Radiohead, GYBE, Death Grips or anything else in case they get back "oh entry level stuff" and any attempt to describe their taste will limit it making them seem shallow.

"What do you listen to?" isn't a test it's a conversation opener.
>>
Will normies understand if I say that post-punk is my favourite genre?

I think the funniest part about is that /mu/core in general is the most entry level shit. It's why I only go outside the /mu/ generals on occasion, because you guys discuss shit like swans as if it's some avant super patrician shit, when in reality they're a pretty damn popular band with a large fanbase.
>>61918353
If you explain what post-punk is, yes.
>>
>>61918353
no but if you aren't completely socially incompetent you could explain it without weirding them out.
>>
>>61910850
From my experience it means "what's on the radio and nothing else" In fact they will be horrified if something they don't instantly recognise hits their ears. These normalfags don't like music, they just want to say "OMGEE THIS IS MY SONG" in responce to every fucking top 40 hit since 2005
>>
>>61911695
Post your soundcloud? I'd love to hear what you've got.
