Everyone has many tastes, but many will agree music can be powerful and inspire many to do things. I love listening to music while coding, especially working on my coding projects. Music can be powerful depending on how you use it. I have quite the varied taste, some come from games like RPGs in which I place myself in my own world. I like to work on games and really put myself into my work so music like this helps. Then there's other genres in which I completely lose myself. Depends on the mood I go for. I can pretty much listen to anything, given that it at least has some sort of point, musical interest, or otherwise. Though with genres like Country, I sort of care less for because my step dad had me listen to it WAY too much - though some exceptions are still great to listen to. But rock and the like cannot bore me no matter how much I listen to it. So favorite genres: Game: RPG, Adventure, misc others Band: Rock, Metal, and some others I cannot name at the moment but it'll come to me. How about you?
