Vision--Close-Minded

Everyone tells me I'm close minded
Why don't you listen to this, you might like it
Everyone tells me I'm close minded
You're some hypocrite if you say you don't buy it
Everyone tells me I'm close minded
I'll tell you right now that I'm never gonna try it
Everyone tells me I'm close minded
Give me what I want or there's gonna be a riot

What am I to do
Close-minded
What am I to do
Close-minded

Everyone tells me I'm close minded
Make no mistake, there's no compromise
Everyone tells me I'm close minded
Just try and see it through my eyes
Everyone tells me I'm close minded
I'll tell ya one more time that ya better keep quiet
Everyone tells me I'm close minded
If it's not punk rock, I'm never gonna like it

What am I to do
Close-minded
What am I to do
Close-minded

[spoken]You know, everybody's always saying, "you're really close minded. You only listen to one type of music. You only go to one type of show." And I say, "well you know what? This is the type of music that we grew up on. This is the type of music that we play. Punk rock is our way of life. It's how we choose to live, and everyone else's opinion is worth nothing. Don't worry about what I listen to, worry about your own life. 'Cause I'm not going to change for you or anyone. I can't help it if you don't like it, and it's up to me if I don't want to listen to anything else. it's what's in our blood. It flows through our vaines. So save your breath, 'cause we're here to stay."

Everyone tells me I'm close minded
Why don't you listen to this, you might like it
Everyone tells me I'm close minded
You're some hypocrite if ya say you don't buy it
Everyone tells me I'm close minded
I’ll tell you right now that I'm never gonna try it
Everyone tells me I'm close minded
Give me what I want or there's gonna be a riot

i don't listen to "types of music"...i just pick and choose musicians/groups...i never listen to the radio cause none of my favs are on it...these are the groups you MOST OFTEN find me listening to, but i like others...

u2 (duh)
jeff buckley (2nd fav)
rem
radiohead
oasis
doves
pete yorn
clash
bruce springsteen
sting/sting and the police

and that's about it. maybe i'll like someone else more later *shrugs* but i'm kind of picky...all mainstream pop music makes my skin crawl...

I listen to mainstream pop a lot. Depends on what you consider mainstream really, but I can count Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys and Oasis as part of my favourite artiste repertoire.

I also love classical music. I went through a period where that's about all I listened to. Now I'm back to listening to mostly rock music.
Oh man great list. I love a lot of the bands you listed. Coldplay rocks! Hey, do you have the Weekend Players CD. If you're into Coldplay, you'll probably dig them.

I've gone through the jazz, new age, techno, rave, etc. phases. And ofcourse rock and alternative.

Now, I just , aside from alternative and rock, chillout, electronica and world. I only listen to one R&B and one hiphop artist.

I more or less listen to everything (except country to be honest) I would like to add some more classic music and jazz to my collection at somepoint in time.

Usually on in my car or computer at work:
rock or alternative or whatever you want to call it these days or
some form of electronica - kinda into the downtempo stuff these days

Hey Bono's Shades, I was wondering if you'd heard of Weekend Players? As a fellow Coldplay fan, I thought you might know them or like them. It's a really cool album. I've been listening to it since I heard it on KCRW. I love her voice.
