Surely none of us only listens to film/TV music. I'm keen on jazz, classic rock, '80s/early '90s hip-hop, and some country and pop. Classic rock can't be beat, with the usual assortment of groups including Rush, Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Nine Inch Nails...

How about you?

80s pop onwards. I grew up during this period. I have had a great deal of fun perusing the UK chart archive and rediscovering songs I hadn't heard since they were originally released.

I've also had fun discovering songs from later on, a time when I wasn't listening to the radio much anymore.

*edit* These embedded videos don't show up in Chrome anymore. There's just a blank space below. They do work in Edge, however. Here's a link, as well as the embedded video for Edge users.

The rare chance I'm not listening through film music scores, I'm listening to either pop rock, or 80s synth.

Outside of my 90-minute analog-cassette and full-CD anthologies of treasured individual songs which I've compiled periodically since 1986, here are the separate non-film-music albums and classical pieces to which I still return with the most pleasure:

Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass: their '60s albums, especially Tijuana Brass Vol. 2, South of the Border, and Herb Alpert's 9th [my love of these LPs helped feed my adolescent transition toward Ennio Morricone with FISTFUL OF DOLLARS]
Samuel Barber: Adagio for Strings
The Beatles: Abbey Road
L.V. Beethoven: piano sonatas Moonlight, Pathetique, and Appassionata; Symphony No. 7
Leonard Cohen: esp. I'm Your Man; The Future
Nat "King" Cole: Love Is the Thing
Sam Cooke: 28-song anthology The Man and His Music
Claude Debussy: The Girl With the Flaxen Hair; Clair de Lune
Dire Straits: Brothers in Arms
The Drifters: The Drifters' Golden Hits
Antonin Dvorak: Symphony No. 9
Enya: esp. Watermark; The Memory of Trees; The Celts; Shepherd Moons; A Day Without Rain; and Amarantine
Roberta Flack: Killing Me Softly
The Four Tops: Anthology
George Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue
Philip Glass: Dancepieces; Songs From Liquid Days
The Grateful Dead: American Beauty
Quincy Jones: Quincy Jones Plays the Hip Hits (Big Band jazz that incidentally includes my favorite cover of Gold's EXODUS theme)
Scott Joplin: his piano rags as performed by Joshua Rifkin (or orchestrally by the Southland Stingers); the opera Treemonisha (the 1975 Deutsche Gramophone recording)
Franz Liszt: esp. Mephisto Waltz; La Campanella; Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2; Liebestraum; and Les Preludes
Dory Previn: Mythical Kings and Iguanas; We're Children of Coincidence and Harpo Marx
Maurice Ravel: The Bolero
Diana Ross and the Supremes: Anthology
Simon and Garfunkel: Bridge Over Troubled Water
Paul Simon solo: Graceland
Frank Sinatra: September of My Years
Cat Stevens: esp. Mona Bone Jakon; Teaser and the Firecat; Tea for the Tillerman
Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life; Hotter Than July

What's this -- this thread is up for three days, and nobody else bothers to identify or recommend other music that more of us might discover?

I listen to mostly classical music, I don't know how much exactly but probably more than half of what I listen to falls into the general domain of classical music, from Bach to Brahms to Penderecki.

The rest is film music, jazz, rock/pop, techno, industrial, house, whatever....
