    I can't say I have a favorite kind of music. Lots of rock, some country, some classical and so on. It's odd with the classical music I like, though. It has to have a melody buried somewhere or I'm not interested. A piece of classical that isn't one of my favorites is even unpleasant to listen to sometimes. I dislike classical music that is technically structured correctly but has no heart to it. I like Strauss waltzes, especially, along with the usual gang - the 3Bs, Mozart, Schubert, Vivaldi, Debussy, etc. I love the great piano solos by some of these.

    My favorite music is anything that I can't hear.

    I don't go to concerts as a rule because I dislike the hero worshiping aspect at the larger venues. I did attend a Leo Kotke concert at a very small venue in Easton, Maryland. At one point when he came to the end of Eight Miles High, I shouted out "I wanta have your baby!". The place broke up, including Kotke.

    I don't have a favorite anymore. I listen to such a wide variety that it's too difficult to pick just one.

    I love spanish guitar music. True story -- about six years ago or so I needed to stay in an AirBnB while visiting my mom who had just been moved to a nursing home. By complete coincidence, the closest one to her location was in the home of Ronald Radford, a flamenco guitarist -- a little detail not disclosed on their AirBnB listing, but which I discovered after a little sleuthing once I got his name. I did get to hear him play a little bit during the stay, but more incredibly was that he made me breakfast each morning, then gifted me with a CD of his music when I left. Here's a video of one of his performances.

    I like classic rock the most some blues 'JJCale' is little known but great song writer blues singer.I also like some country and have one CD ofinstrumental classic andthat is Strauss.I do like the Three Tenors now and them too.But mostly it classic rock.
    It is kinda expensive but if you haven't seen the 1938 movie, true story of Johann Strauss its a great moive.IMO it sure beeats what HollyHoods are throwing up today. I was `5 with nothing to do one night and as most know only had 1 or 2 channels in the early 60s and it was on the Late Late Show. At first I thought no way am I watching this old crap,ended up being one of my all time favorite movies.

    That Elvis tune sounds more Mexican mariachi than Spanish flamenco to me @Marie Mallery. But here's one familiar country western song that takes a haunting, and to my ear, a slightly Moraccan sound:
