Question What music do budiges like the best?

Hey everyone!

I have poked a little around the forums but nothing too in-depth. I thought it would be fun to ask what music your budgies like the most (and dislike the most). I am also wondering if budgies in general tend to like/dislike any particular music genres, or if it is totally individual like it is with humans.

I have been trying out rap music, Stevie Wonder, classical, dance music, and so on. They seem to enjoy music with high trills similar to bird calls because they chirp along, but I'm not sure if they really care about any of it. I sing to them, and when I can't think of any song in particular, I just sing vocal warmups! Do-Re-Mi- and so on.

What music do your birds like?

For soothing music, mine will listen to classical.
In general, my birds respond well to music with a good beat, they like the old Motown's hits, 70s disco sound, 80s music too.
When training and/or having out of cage time, the TV is always on VH1 for them.

By the way, Stevie Wonder rules! The song "Superstition" is a family/flock favourite.

My birds love loud and fast music, they love rock and electronic the most. I guess they are more of the party loving budgies!😉😂 I don't turn rock on though cuz I don't like it.

Mine seem to love rap also, forgot to put it in the post at first, especially songs that are on the louder side.

Mine love anything with a good strong bass to it, so there's a lot of rap thrown in there that's not my favourite but my husband has found that they and he likes. They also really like foreign language music or even just the news in a foreign language because they like the sounds. What they love best is when I sing to them catchy disney songs meant for small children, hahaha!

We listen to country mostly. I have a soft spot for some favorite 80s artists and throw them in, too, along with Disney of course. My budgies definitely like a faster beat because they respond least when the song is soft and slow. They still prefer the sound of other budgies most. I leave YouTube budgie sounds on when we leave or when it's particularly quiet in my home. That's not often, though. My children are obnoxious.

I recently saw Gremlins for the first time and Greyjoy went absolutely nuts for the theme music, he also seems to be quite fond of Dropkick Murphys (probably the bagpipes)

They love that song (it seems), and they also agree with me that "Livin for the City" is a great track!

Haha yeah it is weird for me because I think, "Don't make loud noises and scare the birds." Then I realize that they live in the wild in flocks of hundreds or thousands of squawking budgies and that they probably don't mind some loud noises!

Now I feel less guilty when I want to listen to something noisy.

My birdie is a clubber boy. Cloud really likes dance musics he gets so excited hops and chirps around. And I found out he likes the rap songs, which I am not a big fan of, but he crazily sings along with rap songs :O of course he does not sing to everything though, he has his own taste and picks the songs he likes to sing along.

I definitely think it's a lot like humans! Mallorn has very different tastes. She does love anything loud, but music wise her favourites are any movie soundtrack (she loves Thor and Pirates of the Caribbean!) and classical music. She also chirps along to Irish fiddle music, which I play a lot and consequently listen to often.
