Well, I don't know really much about music, but I've listened to some Indie music, such as Kate Nash, Adele, Feist, and I don't know if Lilly Allen can be in this genre, but I think their music is very lively. I can listen to any kind of music, and those singers I like very much.

 I love music in general, but especially indie music. Im a great fan of Radiohead and I hope my friends enjoy it as well
 

I really love indie music, specially London bands, i love jazz too, but is other kind of music, maybe more complicate to understand, but i really love jazz music.
This is my first post, and this is my first time in this web, i really enjoy to learn english in this way,

I am really a big fan of this band.All of their songs are masterpieces which can make u feel melancholy, cold, amazed etc.The best band ever!

wow..this the most interesting English learning media. I have been an English teacher for almost 15 years but I just found this amazing media for learning English. It really help me and is very useful for my students at all ages

I've discovered Radiohead quite recently, and one of their song i like best is "Nice Dream", because it's very peaceful, not at all aggressive, and kind, compare to some other songs.
And the lyrics is (are?) great, too:
"They love me like I was a brother
They protect me, listen to me
They dug me my very own garden
Gave me sunshine, made me happy..."
NICE  DREAM

Hi OlessyaKZ, how are you? I like your lyric.

I would say music is the lingua franca of human being and nobody dislike music and song as we shared the same way of feeling, right? Artistic creation do plays an essential role in our daily life, it can influence the mood swings of us. My experience is that when I was feeling unhappy I listened to hot pop music or songs and its effect is fantastic.
What music and song I mentioned above is none other than the Chinese one which is my mother tongue. Honestly, I seldom listened to English song so I lack knowledge in this respect and I am going to do switching because listening to English songs can also improve my English.
There is a song : 'Saturday Night Fever',which is one of my favourite song, I love it very much.
 

this tupe of music is simular with coldplay or travis
they too make alternative rock
and I think  it is the best way to start day with music

Sorry but I hate the way she talks
spoiled the subject, not good for learning english
