My favorite kind of music is Gospel, specifically what I call old-time Gospel. That doesn’t mean the really old Gospel songs, it seems Gospel these days has been redefined to be Contemporary Christian music by many people. Big difference between the two music genres.
Get a hymn book that been around a couple of decades https://www.bogardstore.org/pc_product_detail.asp?key=C3FC725D0B734F089D644AA05271BE5E (not an affiliate link).
For other music genres, I like non-depressed Country and Western or Classic Rock – pre-1980s provided I can hear the words and it’s not unintelligible nonsense screamed by a person who should not be singing. Same for musicians who don’t know how to play instruments. I don’t consider smashing a guitar or other instruments as playing them.
I would much rather listen to a singer who can’t carry a tune in a bucket, but is singing from the heart then someone who sings a lot better, but isn’t singing from the heart.
It’s sad how many professional singers today who lip sync claim singing at a concert is too hard to defend lip syncing. It wasn’t that hard decades ago when musicians could go hours without lip syncing. If I pay for a live concert, I expect to hear actual live singing and not lip syncing. With all the video cameras and cell phones out there, you will get busted for lip syncing.
It’s like watching a foreign language film where the mouth doesn’t match the words. In that case, I don’t expect them to because it’s different languages.
I rely on subconscious lip reading if I can see a person’s face due to my hearing loss, 60% in one ear and 40% in the other ear.
