In the days of the IIITian dream head, I used to listen to nothing but metal. For everything …. and every occasion.
Then I went into loggerheads with this French girl, my STEP buddy who seems to hate metal and worship sissy pop music!
And the clash in the true professional management style led to a collaboration, a compromise , a middle-state convergence. (do I hear the people shout Glooobe !! 😉 )
I still dont listen to shit like Britney and kiddo teenage music like that of Backstreet boys.But … a little more flexibility has creeped into my musical part of life 🙂
So these are I guess the kinds of music I would recommend listening to on different occasions.
Running : heavy on the lyrics – something you sing along with energy and gutso .. (alternate rock ,gothic metal, nu metal and trust me ..senti songs 😛 , ——to name a few, hhh, evanescence, maiden, eminem, etc.,)
Weights in the gym: heavy on the beats ..which causes enough disturbance in your head to forget the heaviness of the weights. My favourite here being an orchestra called INVASION which is also the entrnace music for Bill Goldberg. (apart from heavy metal, hard rap …also South Indian item numbers 😛 , Punjabi etc, should do 😉 )
Dance or aerobics – techno, indi pop remixes (they work !!)
daaru (drinks) sessions – trance, house or latesht filmi music
(if you are sad with daaru … nothing matches better than Dev D 😀 )
Candle Lit dinner dates : French orchestra any day.
Fast Food dinner dates: Indian filmy music, the foot-tapping ones
Sleep inducing – any lyric less music … instrumental versions of soft songs, orchestras et al.
Love making: I seriously won’t comment on this …. lol
