I picked other because the music I like would either be in it's own category or sort of transcend most if not all the categories. My favorite type of music is soundtrack/score/trailer music.
And I don't mean the popular music that typically gets put on soundtracks, though sometimes I like those too. I mean the actual score, and also the music used in many trailers that often has nothing to do with the movie directly.
Some of my favorite artists are:
- Hans Zimmer
- John Williams
- Danny Elfman
- Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica)
- E.S. Posthumus (they do trailer music that was used for PotC and a bunch of others, also the theme to the TV series Cold Case)
- Steve Jablonsky (The Island, Transformers 1&2)
- Two Steps from Hell (trailers for Star Trek (2009), Order of the Phoenix, etc.)
- Immediate Music (trailers for Half-Blood Prince, Order of the Phoenix, and many more)
Additionally, I like celtic/new age music from artists such as Loreena Mckinnett, Enya, Blackmore's Night, and Enigma. Generally I'm more of a songs based fan than any particular genre. My playlists have everything from classical to hard rock. Also, quite a few showtunes and recently a lot of Glee music.
