Here is my idea of what each Touhou listens to. There seems to be little in the way of canon on this issue but if there is, please correct me. Not every Touhou is on this list, I feel like there are quite a few that I don't know enough about to make a fair judgement. Feel free to find your favorite Touhou, comment on my choices, argue, call me a fag, etc.
Marisa:
A weird mix of cutesy indie folk and old-school gangsta rap. Has memorized and can rap the lyrics to most of Biggie's discography with an incomprehensable Japanese accent.
Reimu:
Doesn't listen to that much music of her own. Mostly listens to whatever people around her put on, but she likes some of the stuff others listen to.
Sanae:
Obsessed with traditional Japanese music like Gagaku and Kagura-uta. Will not shut up about how great it is and gets insulted on a personal level if anyone disagrees with her.
Rumia:
Doesn't listen to music. She knows nursery rhymes and other kid songs though and sings them with her friends.
Cirno:
See above
Daiyousei:
The most basic bitch J-pop out there.
Meiling:
Classic C-pop from the 50's and 60's.
Patchouli:
Simultaneously a classical elitist and a jazz elitist. Smug about her tastes and ridicules others to no end. Encyclopedic knowledge of classical and jazz music though, she isn't a poser.
Koakuma:
Tries (and miserably fails) to stay one step ahead of whatever Patchouli listens to in an effort to impress her.
Sakuya:
Ragtime. Responsible for introducing it to the Mistress.
Remilia:
Impressionist music, the subtler and softer the better. Ragtime is her guilty pleasure.
Flan:
Gabber and other assorted ADHDcore.
Letty:
New wave, especially Japanese new wave.
Chen:
See Rumia
Alice:
Dorky "vintage revival" music like Steampunk music and the 90's swing revival.
Prismriver sisters:
Very diverse and eclectic music tastes. They say they listen to a bit of everything and they do. The unquestioned musical authorities in Gensokyo. Each one listens to music more in the genre of which their instrument is predominant.
Lily White:
Symphonic progressive rock, fond of the Moody Blues.
Ran:
Listening to herself singing lullabyes to Chen.
Youmu:
Basic J-rock. Her favorite bands are The Pillows and Band-Maid.
Yuyuko:
Gagaku and other forms of traditional Japanese music. Sanae talks her ear off about it with her. She appreciates the conversation, but she isn't as die-hard about it as Sanae is.
Yukari:
Thinks music is a waste of time for someone of her power and intellect.
Suika:
Blues rock and southern rock. Also has a soft spot for sappy romantic ballads but gets embarassed if you bring it up.
Wriggle:
See Rumia
Mystia:
Adult contmeporary. I have literally no explanation for this, I just feel it in my soul.
Keine:
Synthpop, mostly newer indie stuff.
Tewi:
Very, very loud bubblegum pop.
Reisen:
Weird Japanese nationalist anthems and patriotic music from the Tojo era.
Kaguya:
Similar to Yuyuko, except that Sanae pisses her off about it so much that she physically forbids her from speaking with her about music.
Mokou:
Grateful Dead. One of the rare fans who prefers their studio albums over their live albums.
Aya:
Denpa music. It can be heard blasting out of her earbuds whenever she walks by.
Yuuka:
Generic classic rock. Tune into your local classic rock station. That's what Yuuka likes. She's also into Enya.
Komachi:
Silly, fun J-pop. Gets a little too involved in idol groups, Eiki doesn't appreciate her enthusiasm.
Eiki:
Yacht rock, on the rare occasions she deems worthy of listening to music.
Nitori:
Chiptune and video game/anime OST. ZUN is her favorite composer!
Kanako and Suwako:
Japanese court music. They are partially responsible for Sanae's obsession.
Parsee:
Really angsty scene kid shit like Blood on the Dance Floor. Stuff even most middle schoolers would be embarassed to listen to.
Yuugi:
Thrash metal and old alt rock. She especially likes Queens of the Stone Age because it's both at the same time.
Satori:
The fringes of the musical avant-garde. The stuff she listens to doesn't blow up in popularity till years later.
Okuu:
Sludge metal and drone metal.
Koishi:
Why bother listening to music when you've got your own personal soundtrack playing in your head 24/7?!PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAKE IT STOP
Nazrin:
Ambient. Also enjoys discussing field recordings with Kisume.
Kogasa:
Black metal, the edgier the better. Wishes she could leave Gensokyo to try and scare hardened metal fans.
Byakuren:
Tibetan singing bowls.
Hatate:
Aesthetic soundcloud garbage like Lil Peep.
Sunny Milk:
Old videogame OSTs.
Luna Child:
Super into Brian Eno and all the people associated with him.
Star Sapphire:
One of those annoying Beatles fangirls.
Kyouko:
Anything, as long as it's played louder than 120 dB.
Futo:
Doesn't listen to much music, but very keen on music theory. Reads a lot of it and composes her own music on lute.

>>24003417
Kokoro:
Emotionless European avant-garde composers. She claims it makes her "feel stuff inside", but that's doubtful.
Mamizou:
All Zappa all the time. Talks all the time about how Zappa was the best guitarist of all time and if you get her drunk enough, about how much she wishes Zappa was still alive so she could fuck him.
Wakasagihime:
Shoegaze and other dreamy guitar music.
Kagerou:
Doesn't listen to music. She thinks the song of the forest is enough.
Seija:
Whatever people around her don't like, just to piss them off. She has no taste of her own.
Inchling:
Most music is unpleasantly loud for her. Nitori is working on some tiny headphones for her so she can listen to music without killing her eardrums.
Raiko:
Various taiko playing styles and jazz drum solos.
Kasen:
Rejects music as part of being a hermit. Secretly loves it though.
Sumireko:
Nerdy internet microgenres like vaporwave.
Clownpiece:

Honestly it fits well with her being a jazz elitist though. For example, Patchy likes '93 Til Infinity because of the Billy Cobham sample. Similarly, she likes Slim's Return because it samples Gene Harris.

Most touhous have no access to music, especially western, but...

Marisa likes heavy metal, though she dislike the more extreme stuff. Satori listens to noise/industrial almost exclusively. Music probably pisses of Reimu, she prefers silence. Flan and Koishi dislike music as it makes them too anxious. Kosuzu has a lot of random vinyls of various genres. Sumi pretends to like free jazz/improv to feel special, the more obscure the better. Sanae listens to generic indie pop. The fairies don't listen to music. Alice seems the shoegaze type (though i can imagine her listening to electro swing). Suika likes blues and anything folky. Renko and Maribel listen to jazz. Nitori likes anything with bleep bloops and synths.

Could see her liking Sabbath because she's literally a witch.

That's a good take. Not too far off from what I said.
>Kosuzu has a lot of random vinyls of various genres
Also a good take. I overlooked Kosuzu.

Maribel I can see, Renko I feel is too weird (and not in a cool, liking-jazz sort of way).

>but your explanation makes more sense than mine would
Haha, nah, not really. It's just wishful thinking of mine. Rumia is my favorite danmaku girl, but I seriously doubt she'd appreciate darkcore. She's a dum dum, so slightly more realistically, I see her listening to cute, child-like music like Lullatone, Klimperei, Kuricorder Pops Orchestra, or that one east-asian project with the cartoon marching band animals playing cute music.

But it's all just more wishful thinking. She'd probably actually dig those asmr videos of pets eating various meats or something.

Yeah, I realistically think she would just sing kiddy songs or whatever with her friends, perhaps the Japanese equivalent of singing songs about wishing a violent death upon Barney. I couldn't see her seeking out music to listen to on her own.
