Musical Hippie? You Decide.

Recently, on a drive to Columbia, my soon-to-be sister-in-law asked me what kind of music I liked. We were listening to 80's dance music at the time, which is great, but doesn't figure prominently into my usual playlists. (Although, she would be proud to know I have quite the 80's collection; it was the staple of many college house parties.)

My brother-in-law, in an effort to characterize my tastes, described me as a musical hippie--chiming in that I listen to "Dave Matthews, the Grateful Dead and stuff"--so clearly, he has a somewhat skewed perception of my musical tastes.

I guess I would best describe myself as being of the blues/Southern rock persuasion. To answer the question, I'm simply going to list what I listen to most frequently and let them decide for themselves. They should keep in mind that this list doesn't include any classical selections, the stuff I listen to in order to learn for Praise Band, or the myriad of singles by eclectic artists that pepper my playlists. These are the 20 or so artists that get the most regular hits in my iTunes, in no particular order:

Stevie Ray Vaughan
Robert Johnson
Bobby "Blue" Bland
Skip James
U2
Susan Tedeschi
Patty Griffin
Dave Matthews
Rage Against the Machine
Gipsy Kings
Coldplay
Black Crowes
Bob Marley
Tori Amos
Collective Soul
John Coltrane
Taj Mahal
Ray LaMontagne
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Metallica
Scrap-o-Matic
Bruce Hornsby
Santana
The Strokes
System of a Down
Sam Bush

I would *love* to go, except that it's on a Tuesday night! We need to figure out what we're going to do about taking vacation at the end of June, especially if we're planning on coming up for your housewarming. Looks like tickets go on sale Saturday, so I'll have an answer for you by then!
