    Well, let's get to the point. I feel pretty lonely sometimes (well, actually I AM alone) so I usually jack up my PC and play.

    But sometimes, I don't feel like doing anything and I need some music to accompany me, too bad I don't have any music installed here [​IMG]

    What do I have? Sample musics from Windows Vista and some music from Okami (Shinsuu Plains) and that's that [​IMG]

    Can anybody recommend me some music for listening? Cause I'm not a knowldgable about music.

    What musics do I like?

    -Instrumental Instrumental, what else should I say about this?
    -Slow Not as slow as a requiem mind you, usually like Breazy in FFVIII, that speed of slow.
    -Techno-beat I like it techno, but not disco. Pretty much like that techno in "4 minutes" and "techno" from The Urbz, and not like house music or club s#its (fast, abstract, s#itty, not THAT kind of music)
    -Classical There's reason they say classical musi is good for a baby's brain, and it feels relaxing too, but please, I'm not an opera watcher
    -Pop there's something about pop music that draws me in, and usually they're good.
    -2000's You know, songs like The Corrs' "Summer Sunshine"? They're kinda old, like a few years, but somehow old songs are the best
    -Random? You know, it's hard to describe what kind of music I like, since it's so random. I'll give you some example of how random it is:

    Musics I currently like:
    -4 minutes (Madonna-IDK)
    -Shinsuu Plains (Masami Ueda-Okami-Japanese-Instrumental)
    -That's What Love Is (DIVA-Korean)
    -Professor Layton's Theme(Professor Layton-Classical-Instrumental)
    -V3 (IDK, go google something like V3 O2jam, a .mp3 file-Techno)
    -Amadeus(like V3, google Amadeus O2Jam-Techno)
    -Brahms(again, Brahms O2jam-Techno-Classical)
    -Love Mode(IDK too, google love mode audition, you'll see-Korean)

    You see, I can't say I particularly like a genre, some music in a genre is good for me, while others in the same genre feels suck

    Can somebody recommend me a music, based on the info I tell you? It's just for a casual listening in my room, so I can't afford a loud music

    Dude you can never be to picky about music! You seem a little to picky or it seems like you don't listen to a lot of different types of music.
    But you can try "Bond", it's a group of ladies that play classical instruments, techno in there songs and good beats.
    If I we're you I wouldn't be to picky about music, here are some genre's that I like and try to listen to different types of genre's:

    Hip Hop (Real hip hop like Rakim or Lupe Fiasco)
    Rap (Rap like Chamillionaire or Rock City)
    Funk (I listen to this because i'm a dancer)
    Hardstyle (I have friends who "Shuffle" and some hardstyle songs are pretty good)
    Trance (Much better than techno, I can't stand techno it's to old school)
    Break Beats (It'll be hard to find decent break beats, but try to find Dj Babyboi)
    Rock (All kinds besides oldies, screamo, and heavy metal)
    RNB (Only when i'm in the mood, but there are some good RNB songs out there)

    My list can go on forever and I can get into lots of details, but yea that's some of the genre I like. Try to find different kinds of songs and listen to them and see if u like them.

    Try finding some stuff from Tokyo Philharmonic. A bunch of their stuff is really annoying and hard to find, but if you ever find any, it's most likely worth your time. They orchestrate a bunch of video game tracks and the like (because, you know, Japan does this sort of stuff), and it sounds just damn swell.

    Might be Vicious Delicious. There's a very short radio edit but it's actually over an hour.

    Here's my suggestions..
    No - Vim!

    I recommend the entire "Cross" album by Justice, but one of my favorites is "The Party".
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbN5B93mpFE

    Paper Planes - M.I.A. (lol)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sei-eEjy4g

    I'd like to recommend more but that's the only things I can imagine you would like.
