Taste in Music

Music is an expression of feelings and emotions! I think the music a person listens to says a lot about his feelings and his inner life and is certainly not unimportant in the characterization of a human being.


My own taste in music consists on the one hand of certain rock music and on the other hand also of music with electronic influence as well as music with classic influence.


At first, some artists are listed with some exemplary songs that shape my taste in music in recent time or generally. After this listing I have given some additional songs by other artists. The order of the artists is in alphabetical order and does not indicate how much I like certain music. Especially the last listed band "Within Temptation" corresponds particularly good to my taste in music.


Some of the songs are clickable. A click on the link leads to the particular song on an external video-sharing website. But I cannot constantly monitor the actuality and validity of these links...
