I love richly orchestrated, lush sounding stuff, lovely melodies, great harmonies: the kind of music that was produced from the mid 60s to the early 70s.

I'm kind of obsessed with fine arrangements, gentle, lush, rich strings, muted trumpets, harpsicord sounds, wordless vocals, woodwind & flutes, fluegelhorns, acoustic guitars, vibraphone, glockenspiel, latin-tinged percussion.

Sounds that are breezy, springlike, airy, etheral, stylish, gentle, intimate, melancholy, bittersweet, delicate, soft and sunshine-like.

To be more specific:

European Soundtracks of the late 60s, especially Ennio Morricone's easy listening soundtracks of the late 60s, early 70s & stuff that features Edda Dell'Orso vocals especially

Sunshine pop/soft rock of the late 60s by artists like Roger Nichols, The Free Design, The Sandpipers etc.

Bossa Nova/Brazilian stuff by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao & Astrud Gilberto, Marcos Valle, Doris Monteiro, Sergio Mendes and italian bossa nova music

Easy listening/Orchestral/Vocal pop: Burt Bacharach, Herb Alpert, Sergio Mendes, The Singers Unlimited, Claudine Longet, Dusty Springfield

Apart from that i like classic vocal artists & crooners such as Julie London, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole...

Light, gentle indie pop is another kind of music i have a soft spot for: Saint Etienne, Ivy, Birdie, Belle & Sebastian, La Buena Vida, Everything But The Girl, Acid House Kings & Club 8...

Another thing i like is sophisticated pop/electronica stuff: Swing Out Sister, Air, Zero 7, Mandalay, Goldfrapp

I still like synth pop/wave music i was raised up with such as New Order, The Smiths, Depeche Mode and contemporary electro music like VNV Nation or Assembalge 23 as well as vintage 8-Bit C-64 music by Rob Hubbard.

Then there's much more but that sums it up nicely i guess...

Oh, and I love doing compilations...
