I have to agree on that, even deaf people probably totally ignore lyrics and just keep on with the vibrations. Like we tend to keep to the music, not concerned about lyrics (at least the majority of us)

You're not understanding what I'm saying. Csihar gets it, I think. You can like poetry just by reading it in your head, you don't need musical instruments to go along with it and you don't need to hear it out loud by a person (though it does help). I'm not really talking about the beat or the rhythm here, just the lyrics. It's not a good overall picture of the song, of course, but I doubt just feeling the vibrations are either. Not all songs have worthless lyrics, and I guess I'm one of the rare type of people who are concerned about lyrics. I don't listen to songs with bad lyrics, only songs with good ones (I do like music with no vocals as well).

Sorry, I'm just bad at explaining things sometimes. :P

Then it doesn't match this topic, if you make it this way. That would make literature, not music ;P

But isn't language, in a way, music in itself? /ponder

Anyway, I wonder what kind of music Rin would be into in particular. Shoegaze and avant-garde arty shit are probably too obvious to be true. (And then I imagined her trying to put headphones on with her feet and HNNNNGGG)

I don't care too much for Rin's theme song, so during her scenes I just played something else in Winamp. What was I hopelessly into at the time?

...Shoegaze.

It was meant to be.

I can't help but think that Rin would like IDM.

I hate IDM.

"Intelligent Dance Music." It's kind of a catch-all term for quite a wide range of electronic music styles. Ever watch MTV's "AMP" back in the early 2000s? A lot of that would be considered IDM. I guess the most well known artists would be uh... Fluke and Aphex Twin. There's probably an assload more than that but those're what come to mind.

Don'tcha love pretentious genre names? I call just about everything "Techno"

If you ever played GTAIV, "The Journey" is essentially the IDM station.

When I first played it, I listened to the station for a while, thinking it would be electronica. I was right, but I was also wrong. It's like... How can people listen to that for more than 5 minutes?

Rin probably could, though. But she isn't people.


Edit: Also, I think Kenji would probably like LCHC as opposed to classic/prog metal. (I hate extreme metal.)

No idea what if any other stations could be specifically associated with any of the other characters so I'm not going to try, but I'm sure everyone likes LRR. Anyone who doesn't like LRR is a faggot, even if they're a girl.

I'm disappointed in your guy's choices for Punk rock. Come on you could have mentioned Black Flag, Reagan Youth, Bad Brains, the Descendents, Crass, heck even the Clash. :(

Also Rin seems like she would listen to Free Jazz or Math Rock, not that Shoegaze doesn't represent her perfectly. It's just that her thoughts are all over the place much like the notes in Free Jazz or the rhythmic structure of Math Rock.

Free jazz is basically jazz where literally everything is improvised, and math rock is usually defined by the use of non-standard and shifting time signatures. Either will break your brain if you try to think about them too hard.

I've listened to free jazz, and I personally am not into it (preffer old blues almost any day), but I have to agree with G0, the concept of creating something without thinking too much about it seems to fit Rin like a glove. A bit like freestyle rap, except that freestyling is pretty much stroking your dick and trashtalk someone else...

Hey, techno isn't something I listen to normally. The most techno I've listened this past month is 8bit music.
