There was a time when I preferred to listen to music without words. When I was in this phase, I listened to quite a bit of 'New Age' music, specifically that offered by the Narada label, which tended to have more interestingly melodic offerings in their New Acoustic and New Age Fusion collections than the rest of the 'New Age' offerings at that time. My avid interest in RPG video games led me to collect soundtracks of some of my favorite video game music, mostly the music from the Final Fantasy series, Xenogears, Chrono Trigger and other Square/Enix games -- with one notable exception being Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, which is a Konami game. My rekindled interest in anime (because some of Square's games have distinct anime touches to the cut-scenes) brought me to appreciate JRock and JPop music, which has led me back to listening to rock music, complete with lyrics, again.
Ghosty's 'That Modern Rock Show' is helping me to 'catch up' on the music I missed while taking my round-about way here. My favorite band of all is the Eric Stuart Band, but, as there are no tracks available on Project Playlist, they aren't represented in my player below. (Please follow the link in the band name to sample some of their music on their MySpace profile page.)
If you are so inclined, you can find a pretty good representation of the kind of music I like to listen to best in the player linked below.
