There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    I even didn't knew there is so many different genres in the world. But, after little research I found this : http://everynoise.com/everynoise1d.cgi?scope=all . It is a list about micro-genres of popular music, over 1400 different genres @april

    I think there should be only several music genres. All the rest are bullshit. And even better would it be to have music divided into five groups: Trash music, For silly people, Listenable, Wonderful, Genius Pieces.

    I like your thinking @SovereignSun and your five groups :smiley: For me it's enough those basic genres like pop, rock, r&b and few more and that's it

    Recently I've opened a new genre to myself.
    It's J-Pop:D
    I knew about it,but didn't listen.
    So,now I know "삐딱하게(CROOKED)" by GD.
    How could I live without this song so far?:D
    Anyway,can't now.

    The legendary jazz harmonica player Toots Thielemans has died in Belgium at the age of 94.
    May he rest in peace.

    I enjoy listening different music genres, it could be pop, classical, folf, U&B etc... everything depends on my mood.
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,340 mod
    I agree with you, @Nazerke .

    @bigcheeseh
    I did a mistake,not J-pop,there supposed to be K-pop,lol
    And yes! :D Cowboy Bebop's pretty cool and I definitely agree that this opening's one of the best.

    I didn't know that there were that many! I would only be able to name about ten off the top of my head!
