I need some suggestions for some good music that I can listen to while exercising and/or hiking, as well as while coding, so something with a good tempo. I like rock and alternative. Guitars are good, but I’m not really into heavy metal — I want to be able to understand the words (if there are any). I also like some occasional electronic music, but am not very familiar with the genres to know one from the other. While not required, I’d also like to find a new artist that I might not hear on the radio, iTunes, etc. No rap. No country. I’ll give just about anything else a listen.
If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments or contact me. Send links to sites/sample clips if you have them.
You know, what I really need is a place to upload a list of my music and get a suggestion based on similarity with other people’s lists.
I would suggest going to pandora.com. You can type in one of your favorite artists and then they play similar music. You can have different channels, and rate the music. I love it because it plays people you would never think of.
