I'm old...I listen to a lot of stuff from the Great American Songbook genre: Sinatra, Ella, Dinah Washington, etc. I have TONS of music in iTunes so I just kick it off on random play and see what comes up.

I also love audiobooks. I'm in the middle of listening to Dickens' "Oliver Twist" at the moment.

I usually listen to whatever is blasting out from the kid's rooms... sometimes it gets so bad I can't tell who is playing what. One is on a Green Day kick, another listens to hard rock and country and the other listens to classic rock. It's all good!

I listen to a soundtrack called My Crazy House If you've never heard it then you need 2 dogs that are 11yrs apart in age, a husband that watches American Choppers and Biker Buildoff, a large fish tank that younger of said dogs likes to growl and bark at, and neighbors with a 4 wheeler and fireworks (yup I live in the country).

And my family wonders why I'm so excited about vacation !!

if someone's watching tv and I'm sitting on the couch, I use my iPod. usually it's surf guitar or mellow electronic stuff like Ursula 1000 or Thievery Corp. if I can use the radio channels on the tv, it's usually the new agey mellow stuff, '80s, or electronic.

These have all been played in my house in the last few days: U2, the Police, Yaz, Echo and the Bunnymen, Del Amitri, Bela Fleck's classical banjo album, Dean Martin, Elvis Costello, opera, art song, a fabulous album that has a compilation of movements from Masses by Mozart and others, the Pogues, the Pixies, the Beatfarmers, B-52, the soundtrack from O Brother, Where Art Thou?, the list goes on and on...

And then there's 17yo DD and her iPod, playing the newer alternative stuff when she gets home from school.
