I lost my headphones to wear and tear a few weeks back ...and received my new super woofer purple ones yesterday ..

I have just had 49 mins of utter joy listening to tubular bells with Mike Oldfield whilst hoovering and housework...

What music tastes does everyone have ...I'm pretty eclectic Simon and Garfunkel , Bread ,Fleetwood mac ...

So list your tastes below bit different from a picture post πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

We had Tubular Bells but not now. Glad you like your new headphones.

I’m a fan of Fleetwood Mac, ELO, Coldplay, Keen, Clean Bandit, AC/DC and many many more. I love music. Xxxx❀️🌈

I love Queen, Motown, any music really not this modern stuff though. Have a great day and take care πŸ€— Bernadette xxxxx 🌈

Perfect taste Bernadette todays music is completely different from my taste some okay but the majority I agree isn't πŸ’œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Tubular Bells was an album of my youth, I actually saw them live in Southampton late 60s or was it early 70s. The album carried me right through into my 30s but not played it since.

Saw Shanana in Southampton also :)

I saw Fleetwood mac in Salisbury live would you believe, back in the days when Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich play live at our Saturday night dances.

Saw David Bowie at his Ziggy Stardust concert in Salisbury too, gosh this is bringing back memories. Led Zeplin in Salisbury.

In the days when going to live bands dances on regular basis was the norm, before discos and nightclubs were so predominant.

So much great music in days gone by.

Those were the days my friend, zI thought they'd never end............

πŸ˜€xxx

We sing and dance forever and a dayyyy

It's lovely to revisit those days with others on here who also remember and enjoyed those times gone by.

I was born at the end of the war and enjoyed music from the 40s, 50s and 60 s. I grew up with rock n roll and loved the 60 s, A song on the radio instantly transports you back in time. I love all the songs from musical theatre, and a touch of Classic FM goes down well too.

Cheers. Xxx

I love the 60s music 😊

Are we allowed to ask which headphones you have chosen. x

Just JVC wireless ones from amazon Rossie but the sound is amazing ..

My old ones were skullcandy had them years πŸ™ˆ

Thanks very much. There is such a range I am confused. x

Have a look on Amazon or ebay I like the ones with no wires as your free to wander while connected to bluetooth πŸ’œ

Thanks very much

Remember this one....

Oh my goodness what memories the first record I bought was bridge over troubled waters in my local wollies.

Saw David Bowie in the late 70,s as well as Led Zepplin, Queen amongst others. Then to be different I love opera and bits of classical music

I am a bit naughty tho, some of my neighbours play what I call boom boom music, very irritating, so rig my speakers up to play Carmen or Verdi’s Requiem loudly out of the window😁

Hi yes I tested my own audios many times with tubular bells...along with remembering the scratches from my LP that I had ..todays sounds are much more appreciated πŸ˜‚

Funnily, I was thinking of getting earphones too. What does "Woofer" mean please? But purple sounds lovely. Are they the cordless ones? I quite fancy some cordless earphones. xx πŸ™‹

Woofer meaning is a speaker that's designed to reproduce low frequencies in music.. .so it's like a fine tune and you hear every note rather than music such as low base being in the background ...you will hear it much better ...theres woofer and sub woofer...I may not have explained it correctly but you can google that may help more πŸ˜‚

Yes mine are cordless so I can move around the house hoovering πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

Elo, Muse, oasis, verve, Hendrix, foo fighters, stones,royal blood, could be here all night.....

Hello Blackbird8. Firstly your headphones are they bluetooth and i always wonder how they stick in your ear. The corded 1s i have are forever dropping out. Anyhow Music as John Miles sang. Music was my 1st love and it will be my last. Elvis Presley is Top Always so much choice on songs Then. Rod Stewart. Queen. Abba. 70s. Love Affair did some great songs. Lonestar. Led Zeppelin. Bon Jovi. Meatloaf i just loved his songs too. ELO. Nazareth. Anything except only like a few country songs and also a few songs from musicals Have a good day Brian

Hi Brian ..

Yes bluetooth and not ear fixing ones it's a head one with no wires ...I connect them to my phone via bluetooth and run YouTube through them ...fab taste in music though I wasn't a fan of the Pelvis he had some good songs but for the life of me he grated on me a bit and I dont know why πŸ™ˆ

I think it was the films he was in πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Yes Blackbird8 Each has there own opinions I agree with you reference the films. I did not like him in film but on stage singing was a Real Entertainer I shall try some Ear phones Its just usually they keep dropping out Brian

I’ve got quite a wide taste in music. Motown - saw Stevie wonder in concert when I was 17 Mike oldfield (still have tubular bells but on cd now) ,Rick wakeman, elbow ( find guy hypnotising) ,pink, moody blues, bread , Queen , Elton john and Bon jovi to name a few. Of course David Bowie too. X Anita

Your headphones sound fab.

Excellent taste in music Anita ..I think most people are pretty eclectic in taste as variety is the spice if life the headphones are brilliant expensive but worth the comfort and sound they deliver πŸ’œ

I love all the 60/70's music, I grew up with it. I can still remember our neighbours son singing to the Beech Boys, all the Mowtown music, moved along with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, wow there was so much going on in the music world its hard to say what you liked, pretty much most things. I know the radio was never off in our house. I was the youngest of four so was influenced by older sisters as well x
