Heck with therapy, gimme a DJ all my own (Edited 07/30/10 05:19PM by Jess)
I like a very diverse variety of music, and I crave certain artists depending on my mood. For example, if I'm feeling a little emotionally "weak", I pull myself out of it with some P!nk, or maybe even Eminem. When I'm stressed to the point that I'm giving myself a headache, I crave the likes of Matchbox Twenty, Jason Mraz, Dispatch, Social D, Bush, SP, the Pixies, etc. When I want to drive, I throw in some Tech N9ne....or the Lost Boys soundtrack (but I have to be careful...both of those make me drive fast). When I want to dance around the house and embarrass my 8yo, I listen to Nelly, Gaga (shut up), MIA, BoB...pretty much any dance music/hip hop I can get my hands on.

What do you like to listen to depending on certain situations/moods?

I'm with Kramer all the way on this one.  I don't have specific music for specific moods, athough housework goes faster with some rockin' tunes.  Gotta be plugged into the mp3 tho, that way it can be loud for me and not disturb the neighbors

for relaxation (lay back with eyes closed but not wanting to sleep) ...... moody blues
#14 | 1489 days ago

I pretty much put what I listen to in the intro, but specifically:

Driving - I usually actually listen to Sirius/XM, set to hip hop, alternative, or 90's
Chillin by the grill with some pals - it depends on the pals. Sometimes it's dance music, R&B, hip hop, sometimes it's classic rock, sometimes we prefer island music, Zac Brown Band, Jack Johnson, Jimmy Buffet, Jason Mraz, etc.
Down in the dumps - something strong to me; P!nk, Eminem, Paramore, older Sugar Ray, etc.
Nostalgic - either 90's or classic rock
Studying/Presentation - classical, piano, or movie scores (I have a playlist with all three)
Stressed the hell out - Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Matchbox, Goo Goo Dolls, newer Sugar Ray, Unwritten Law, Dispatch, Social D, Bush, & more, similar
At the gym - I don't go to the gym but when I work out at home I just need something upbeat, either rock I can sing along with (even if it's just in my head) or hip hop
Cleaning house - I don't usually turn the music on when I clean my house; it's NFL or NHL Network. When my husband cleans though, he always puts on Dispatch, ZBB, or sometimes his other country crap, which leads to me finding something else to do outside of the house.
Dancin - it depends on the dancing. If I'm doin belly stuff, it's classic Turkish, Egyptian, Indian music or Fusion-compatible stuff like Beats Antique, Black Violin, etc. Anything else, just whatever has a good beat.

10 - just like to listen to, in general: Green Day, Paramore, Smashing Pumpkins, Creed (shut up), BoB, P!nk, Avril (shut up), Dropkick Murphys, Pepper, Unwritten Law, Foo Fighters, Everclear, Jimi, Ozzy, Gaga, Silversun Pickups...the list goes on and on

1 - Driving - this depends on whether I'm in a singing mood or not.  Lately, when I'm in a singing mood, I've been belting out several of the soundtrack CDs from "Glee" (yeah, I'm a Gleek, wtf of it?!).
2 - Chillin by the grill with some pals - funny you should mention it since my BBQ was yesterday (even though we didn't have music on for most of the night ... we're a talkative folk), and we just had background music on pretty low, had my iTunes on shuffle.  So my answer is, basically, it doesn't matter since none of us are focusing on the music.
3 - Down in the dumps - again, depends on whether I'm looking to wallow (Evanescence or some of Pink's stuff) or looking to get myself feeling better and/or empowered (some Mary J. Blige or fun, upbeat 80s tunes)
4 - Nostalgic - some Boyz 2 Men, earlier Mariah, Whitney, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson ... and any other stereotypical 8th grade dance soundtrack songs (you all know what they are).
5 (and 7/8) - Studying/Presentation/Gym/Cleaning - These are all bunched together for me into a category I call "Runway Strut".  This is the kind of music that gets you revved up for battle.  Like if I need to return something at Target and I know I don't have the receipt and they're gonna give me hell about it, I get my runway strut music on to get ready for the customer service desk throw-down (songs like "Take Control" by Amerie are a good example ... just the beat of this song gets me prepped for anything).
6 - Stressed the hell out - old jazz/blues/R&B singers like Etta James, Nina Simone, Ray Charles, Lena Horne, etc.
9 - Dancin - usually mix CDs, but Deborah Cox was the club/dancehall queen for years, so damn near anything of hers except her latest and first albums.

1 - Driving - Depends- Long trips might be whatever I find, or 80's rock or country. To work usually sports radio.
2 - Chillin by the grill with some pals- Most won't care for my choices, so I let them choose.
3 - Down in the dumps- Depends why.  Sometimes Blues or Jazz, and other times will be something hard.
4 - Nostalgic- Anything rock & roll from the 50's to the 80's.
5 - Studying/Presentation- Heavy duty studying = nothing. I can be a slow reader by choice and I don't want distractions.
6 - Stressed the hell out- AC/DC, VanHalen, and other similar.
7 - At the gym- Usually whatever is playing is fine unless I am irritated (which usually = great sessions) then see #6.
8 - Cleaning house- Anything (except Rap or Opera) or nothing, not very picky here.
9 - Dancin- Terrible dancer so it really does not matter.
10 - Anything else? Sleeping or working in the office I like country.
