It seems almost impossible to find women over college age who like electronic dance music... are they out there?

Now excuse me while I get ready for the oh so witty "that's because only immature kids like that crap" comments.

Not this one.. I guess if I were in the mood to dance, I'd like it.

It's awesome for workouts and to just keep you going... I love it and my brother is an amateur dj spinning it. I have the perfect compromise between house and chick music - the remixed Sarah McLachlan albums. Oh yeah!

I don't like house or techno, but I do like electronica, trance, goth (all kinds), hard rock, classic rock, industrial, punk, metal, grunge, umm...there's more but I'm not really big on what music is called I just know what I like when I hear it.

Some of that type of music is okay, but I'm not a hard core fan.

It depends on my mood. I like just about ANY kind of music. From Top 40's to Acid Rock, and yes, even house/techno/jungle/etc...

Nice to see so many responses.

I think the real issue is that most people who "don't like" Electronic Dance Music have never been exposed to anything good.

For example, in Los Angeles, a MAJOR city, the only station that plays EDM that you can take seriously is KCRW, more or less a public radio station.

Commercial radio stations just don't play the good stuff, because most of it is not vocal-driven. Even when it is, it's not top-40 friendly.

Trance is popular now, but I think you'll find most "real" dance music fans got over trance back in '99. Paul Oakenfold and Paul Van Dyk (are they all Paul?) are very talented, but their brand of trance hasn't evolved much and if you've been listening to it since 1994, well, either you moved on or you're still 17.

If you think all dance music is repetitive nonsense, just go buy (or download) this one album: Underworld: dubnobasswithmyheadman and if you still think it's crap, then just stick to country.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE JOKING!!! techno/electro whatever you want to call is not exclusive to the under 25's of today...I was listening/dancing to it 20 years ago. The 70's early 80's was when that type of music was born due to the introduction of more sophisticated equipment etc... (early experimental stuff in the 50's /60's aside)
In fact it amazes me how so many bands do samples of the stuff I used to listen to back then...and still listen to now just depends on what mood I'm in.
Just because you're over a certain age doesn't automatically mean you have to only listen to Celine or Elton...

I like Republica the best in that type of music. I though listen to all kinds of music. Everything from Classical, to religious, to country, to alternative, to funk...to yes, trance (love BT!).

I've got the music in me, even though I am 40 now.

Love em all, Mojo. Got really turned onto it earlier this year - flipping thru the stations trying to find a beat that would keep me awake on a long drive. That's all it took - now it's love, baby.

I'll always like dance music, and I love to dance.

Hey, Madonna is 3 years older than me, and she just came out with a Dance Music album not too long ago!

IME, this is actually the quickest way to enjoy what music you like, and meet others who like what you do...

Go early, grab a drink, get situated and all before the crowd gets there, that way you don't feel as intimidated walking into a huge crowd.

Absolutly love it! Great dance music, and I play it all the time. DJ Francisco, Victor Calderon, Tony Moran are just a FEW that I love, and have even met at some huge Gay Pride event with my Gay guy best friends in Toronto the past 3 years in a row :) I like a wide variety of music, but lean to this stuff. It is always up beat, and is GREAT to have on my IPOD in the gym.

Well, there ya go... lot's of 'em in the thread!
Myself on the other hand... I really can't stand it. I always equate being stuck listening to that type of music as being in my own private hell.
I'm just a straight up rocker chick, always have been and always will be!
