Ok STO, Lets See What You Listen To ???
I acctually got this idea from the Forum of another MMO RPG I used to play or in fact still do but very rarely since STO came out.

So what do You players listen to ???

Hopefully it won't turn into a thread of "oh man Your taste sux" or "d00d Ima cap Yo @ss for listening to that". :D

Just a fun way for us to share our music taste and maybe pick up a few tips and find music we might have missed but turn up to like.

I guess this is a leftover interest from my days as a DJ, when I still didn't have any grey hairs. ;)

Here are some I listen to these days.

YouTube: James Horner - The Ludlows (from the Movie Legends of the Fall with Brad Pitt, Anthony Hopkins, Aidan Quinn) Many instrumental Version on YouTube by people who just sit and play it at their piano or synth's.

Above the asteroids By Alien Hand. Its a remix of below the asteroids and it must be good because I generally dont like club songs outside of a club.

I normally don't talk much about my musical tastes because I avoid the mainstream, but I noticed you had David Arkenstone, Lorenna McKennit, AND Kitaro. 3 of my favorites.

Nice! "Below the Asteroids" (the original that your link is based on) is my favorite all-time game track. It's amazing how well it captures the feel of EVE. I have it on my iPod and listen to it several times daily.

Here's the original haunting track; Below the Asteroids

I listen to anything that strikes me as interesting. I like everything from classical to jazz to electronic to avant garde to funk to hip hop to metal and just about everything in between. I don't care much for most of what gets played on the radio, though. I usually have to dig a little to find the stuff that interests me.
