I guess I've decided this board is the Music Board. At least for me.
Do you have your own unique associations with certain musical styles or bands?
For example, the poster known as "???" has musical associations to the various seasons.
I associate certain bands with the written works of certain authors. I noticed this about myself when I was in my teens. I found I wanted to listen to Led Zeppelin when I was reading the Dune novels by Frank Herbert, yet I wanted to listen to Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes album, "Hearts of Stone," when I was reading the Thomas Covenant novels of Stephen R. Donaldson.
I also associate certain bands with doing my own creative writing. Atrimus mentioned something similar in another thread. For me, 80s hair bands stimulate my imagination, with Def Leppard reigning supreme in this capacity.
How about you?
Septerra's Core was a computer game I was playing for a while and I was listening to Hellbilly while playing it. So somehow it became my unofficial sound track to the game [although they'd have nothing to do with each other]. So now I can't listen to that album without the urge to play the game [and vice-versa]
