I'm at about 60GB here, but I am very selective and picky about my music! I usually only listen to music in the car or when I am drawing/working at my
PC, or busy with a model build.
I can't list everything, obvs, but noteworthy examples would include:
* Thematic orchestral movie/TV soundtracks such as Star Wars, Morse, Batman (1989), Jurassic Park, a few Star Trek movies and the Voyager & DS9
soundtracks, Band Of Brothers, Stargate, Das Boot, and many more
* Orchestral video game soundtracks such as Medal Of Honor, MOH:Frontline, MOH:European Assault, MOH: Underground, BLACK, Skyrim, most Halo
soundtracks, and I'll probably add the Destiny soundtrack when it arrives. I also have the Persona 4 soundtrack which is RIDICULOUS and INSANE and yet
at the same time COMPLETELY AWESOME.
* The "Stuff From My Youth" collection which includes a few Queen albums, a few ELO albums, most Jarre up until Revolutions, "Thief" and "Exit" by
Tangerine Dream, Wendy Carlo's "Switched-On Box Set", a few Penguin Cafe albums (if you have no idea about Penguin Cafe, please google the album
"Music From The Penguin Cafe" and check them out. Strongly recommended), the Best of Jon and Vangelis, and more old stuff. I'm, not really into songs
per se, other than stuff I grew up with.
* A small collection of proper vintage stuff: Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, Ted Heath & His Orchestra, Inkspots, most of the songs featured in Fallout
3, The B Side of the Singing Detective (soundtrack collection) and a few odds and ends I have picked up.
* A rather large and odd collection of orchestral "library music" from the KPM Production Archives that I...um..."obtained" through various means.
These are pieces written purely for the KPM library that are then made available to film and TV production companies for licensed use, and can't
simply be bought. Now I have a great big library of, well, library music, and the only downside is that I can spot and recognise so many pieces of
music in TV programmes now that it kinda sucks.
What else...um...oh, a fair amount of classical baroque - Bach, Scarlatti and the like.
That's about it.
