What kinds of music would be acceptable? :thinking:

That sounds like a recipe for disaster :grin:

I’d draw the line at smooth jazz and Enya.

What about Rap that samples Enya? (Ready or not…here I come…you can’t hide…)

Lauryn Hill always gets a pass.

There’s a whole lot of smoth jazz samples in rap come to think of it, you might run into some trouble there…

I’m waiting for a rap track with a Kenny G sample. That would be dope.

Rap is like a parody of itself now. Seemed to get ridiculous after about 1992.
I cannot listen to it or take it seriously. I cannot remember the last time I listened to any of the pre 1992 stuff either.

The classics of course.

Off the top of my head I would say the works of the following composers that immediately come to mind.

Beethoven
Mozart
Bach
Wagner
Brahms
Schubert
Tchaikovsky
Stravinsky
Schumann
Chopin
Mendelssohn
Debussy
Liszt
Dvořák
Verdi
Mahler
Vivaldi
Strauss
Prokofiev
Puccini
Rossini
Gershwin

My favorite Prokofiev.

Do you notice how this little ditty doesn’t have any lyrics glorifying homophobia, drug use and sales, alcohol use, sexual misogynistic violence against women, violence against the police, etc?

Conversely, we have a cultural desert of garbage known as hip hop.

“Jockin’ the bitches, slappin’ the hoes. Don’t quote boy cause I ain’t said shit!”

Satire of this genre of crap “music” is funny, though.

Hmm, I’m not sure about this one. May cause impressionable teens to start exposing their ankles. :grin:

I know he was into psychedelics but Gary Grant - evil man.

I love Enya and smooth jazz is inoffensive background music. I generally just don’t allow things with too many swears, explicit sexual descriptions, racism, or misogyny. Rap, hip-hop, and pop are the largest victims of this policy, but some still makes it through, especially pop.

She’s comically horrible.

Great sleep/relax music.

I read To Kill a Mockingbird and The Lottery in 7th grade. Watched the movie of the former in 7th grade as well.

I like hip hop. Great workout “music.” Hope it doesn’t get cancelled.

Neither my kids nor myself fall asleep as easily as Grandpa, so I like some good relaxing music that helps that. I actually have sleep music playlists for about 20 different bands/artists and groups of bands/artists. Enya is one.

I would have horrible nightmares if I fell asleep listening to Enya (or Kenny G), but if it works for you…
