What is "Furry Music"?
« on: May 22, 2003, 03:32:29 pm »
Responding to the "Y.I.F.F." thread prompted me to go on and get this up in the air.   I've been pondering this question in my mind for quite some time now..  What makes furry music "Furry"?  Is it because the musician is furry, or is it in the music itself?  Is it the lyrics or the titles?  I noticed that most folks that call themselves 'furry musicians' tend to do instrumentals (like myself)..  What is it about furry music that makes it its own genre?   I seriously would like to know all of your opinions, and think that this might be a good topic of discussion.  Thanks.
NYA!  =^_^=

Hey Katty '<img'>  I think you could class it into two groups.  You have music that is of furry interest which is the most common.  It has a topic/theme/tune that is of interest to furries.  The second class would be composed for furry.  Music that was made for or about furry as it's primary influence and the artist is expressing the furry culture/idealism in some way through his/her music.

Our band YIFF are all furry members, all active in the furry community, and our songs reflect our furry lifestyles.

This is a great question.  I'm a musician and I occasionally write lyrics.  I haven't considered any of the music I create furry music since it doesn't overtly reference furry specific topics.  

My lyrics have been influenced by furry comics like Lacunae by Silverblue and interactions I've had on various mucks.  The rest of the band I'm in are not furres, so I haven't put overt references to the fandom in my songs.

I'm not into creating music but we do have several artists on Furtopia that do. Check it out by clicking on the "Home" button above and then clicking at the top of the page on "Music".

Welcome to our forums! Would you mind introducing yourself to all of us by clicking here.
We would love to hear a bit about yourself. We are all quite friendly and willing to answer any questions you may have and always ready to lend an ear!

You may also check out the rest of Furtopia as there are a lot of things going on besides the forums. The forums is just one of our benefits.

Oh, I'm Kada-Ru, the friendly pegasus that helped WhiteShepherd create this home away from home for furs.

Ok basicaly I am just here to say this is the silliest topic I have ever seen yet. Gay music is considered gay music because of its singers lifestyle. So I am assuming that applies to the same with country, which I dont listen to at all lol. Anyhow...all jokes aside...

I think the genra would be Furrie if done by a Furrie and they WANTED it to be classified as Furrie music. After all its their art. Why shouldnt they be able to classify it.

Then again...You may like those jungle sounds with ambient music. Remember spam is evil.
