You have fabulous taste in music, Astro. I'm pretty ecletic (sp?) with my music. One day it may be Mozart's Concerto in G for Piano, No. 4 or the next it may be the early years of Led Zepplin or Pink Floyd.
My collection is all over the place, too - classics (everything, especially into classical guitar), older rock, older pop, , world - and in the last 10 yrs or so I have developed a real appreciation for jazz & roots music. Two of my favorite online radio streams for jazz programming:
Sorry to say that I'm not much of a Jazz of Blues listener, I still listen to the 70's and 80's music such as Rush, AC/DC,Queen, Stones and even Elton John, Fleetwood Mac,Guess Who, Since retiring last couple of weeks my son took me to the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert and I took him to see Chicago. I have to have music in my life. I started to play the guitar years ago, but work got in the way and now my son started picking it up. Hopefully one day I'll get back to it.
Give me a museum and I'll fill it. (Picasso) Give me a forum ...

Re: What's everyone listening to?
I listen to RadioParadise.com an Internet station with an eclectic mix from the fifties through today. I periodically download about a days worth (legal time shifting and dump them in Itunes/iPod to listen to on the home stereo. A recent listing starts with Innocence Mission and Depeche Mode and moves on to Thievery Corporation, John Coltrane, Paul Simon, Radiohead, Miles Davis..... They manage a very interesting playlist.

DanTien: That's a beautiful, nostalgic Neil Young song. YouTube has "Cortez the Killer" and "Powderfinger," too, to round out the flashback.
Cube_rat: Found some Anoushka Shankar on YouTube, too. Nice.
Astromeria: I never realized that "Night in Tunisia" was originally a Dizzy Gillespie song, having only been familiar with the Art Blakey version. There seem to be a lot of covers out there. Neat.
I can't seem to get into opera or rap either. I believe you need a great voice for opera, but rap...................no comment. Maybe if I understood what the heck they're saying re opera, that would help.
