Rock I'm a huge fan of The Who, The Clash, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd so It's tough to choose just one track out of all those :( I guess I'll choose The Who - Substitute...

Soul Commodores - 3 Time a Lady.

Classical Pavarotti - Nessun Dorma. I think :D

Easy Listening ( So many i love ) Tough choice again, i guess it's between REO SpeedWagon - Keep on Loving you and Cutting Crew - ( I just died ) in your arms tonight.

Film Main Title The Nightmare Before Christmas - If that's allowed ? :D

TV Main Title Only Fools and Horses.

Jazz I loved the Jazz at the Pawn shop album i had years ago on vinyl. I just wish i could find it on CD. :(

Reggae UB40 - 1 in 10..

In truth music is my number one passion ( apart from gorgeous women that is :devil: ) so my music changes as much as the weather does :smashin:

I find it way to hard to narrow it down to single songs, so i'm just gonna name a couple of my favourite groups/artists from each genre.

Rock - Guns N Roses, Rolling Stones, Alice Cooper
Classical - Carl Orff (been a while since i've listened to any classical really, so i cant narrow down any other favourites).
Easy Listening - Nobuo Uematsu (most well known for the soundtracks to the Final Fantasy games).
Film Main Title - I dont know about a specific Title song but for a whole soundtrack, you cant go far wrong with Grosse Point Blank or Pulp Fiction.
TV Main Title - I dont really watch much T.V. so i'm gonna have to leave this one blank.
Jazz - Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald
Reggae - Toots & The Maytals, Max Romeo, The Pioneers

I'm also gonna add a couple of genres.

Blues - Screamin Jay Hawkins, John Lee Hooker, The Blues Brothers Band
Ska - The Slackers, Prince Buster
Two-Tone - The Specials, Madness
Punk - The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, Radio One
