I'd say my range is just about any type of rock from about 1950 to current. And I really enjoy finding bands that noone else has ever heard of.

Earlier this year I came across a band named Eskimo Joe. I'd say they're similar to Snow Patrol.

Last summer I found The Music. As far as I could tell they only had one true album and a few singles, but have already disbanded.

Talk about going mainstream, The Bravery. I'd been listening to them for a few years then suddenly I hear one of their songs on the radio. sigh

Another one I found a couple of months ago, but I'm having trouble much more than a couple of songs by them is Living in Question. They have a song, 10th Street, that is just bad a$$. It's like RATM goes ragae or something.

Josh Rouse, I found a few years ago, and I don't think the guy knows how to put out a bad song.

I listen to mostly old fashioned music. I love celtic, folk, and my all time favorite is Gregory Issacs, Buju Banton, Oh and of course Steel Pulse.
Right now my playlist is them plus some Nancy griffith, and Tom Petty, and Seamus Kennedy.

My favorite band is Coldplay. I love Franz Ferdinand's new cd, Amy MacDonald, Gorillaz, Body Rockers, Miguel Migs, Blue Six, Ryan Bingham (yea Texas!), Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Maroon 5, and lately I'm into ELO's greatest hits.

I still love B Spears, Backstreet Boys, Eminem, Justin Timberlake, Nsync

I love greatest hits cds and usually purchase them in many genres from different eras.

Here's a song I'm obsessed with the past 2 days:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVtJKErRBpI - It's a surpise!

My favorite bands are Godsmack, Metallica, Nirvana, Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, amongst others

I also love older rock/ popular music that nobody seems to listen to anymore like the Beatles, Abba, The Hollies, Everly Brothers, Patsy Cline, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Mammas and the Pappas etc... (even though every one of these people were at the top long before I was even born)

And, I love gospel music, old-fashioned hymns and singing in church!!

I can listen to classical and jazz when I'm in the mood (it is very relaxing)

dnurse- Coldplay is my wifes second favorite (after Fleetwood Mac)

I collect greatest hits from stuff my grandparents liked. I've got Nat King Cole, Eddie Fisher, Dean Martin. My mom liked Charlie Rich when she was young I have his too. She liked CCR and I have some of their stuff. I have some Patsy Cline too.

I never was a big Nirvana fan. I do like one song by Alice in Chains that plays on the radio...Man in the Box.
I own 3 Randy Travis Gospel cd's, that's all I'll listen to if I'm in the mood for it. I never got into the Beatles but I loved the musical Across the Universe. Mama Mia! of course made me want to get Abba's greatest hits. Your wife has good taste! I never get tired of Coldplay.
ELO, Franz Ferdinand, and Amy Macdonald are my obsession lately. Oh, and Miguel Migs. It's electronic music like Blue Six. I was going to post a video but I just got sleepy. Finally! I probably made you sleepy too by just reading this.

I thought about you notkaplan. DK mentions the singer Israel Kamakawiwo'ole on the Odd Thomas MySpace as one of Odd's favorites (along with The Decemberists, Franz Ferdinand, and Death Cab for Cutie). I take it that DK likes Israel from something else he quoted. Anyway, Israel does a take on John Denver's Country Roads song regarding Hawaii. Here's the song.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZw5AC_re6I - IZ Take Me Home Country Roads

Also, I love Franz Ferdinand and some critic compared them to The Knack. But I don't really agree. I think I only like My Sharona by The Knack. Not sure.

dnurse, have you ever listened to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3wp3rGITOQ - Sweeter Love by Blue Six? It is one of their better songs, and I neglected to mention it during our discourses on musicology. Long, but worthy.

I've listened to it more, it does grow on you. You know, it has that same sound that bothered me in Tropicalia except it is mixed right in this song. It flows. In Tropicalia, it was mixed in at a louder and sharper volume and it would distort my speakers until I had to adjust the volume until I couldn't hear the rest of the music in the song well. I wonder why they did that? Anyway, Sweeter Love is mixed well and it works. I have 3 songs from Miguel Migs that are so similar to Blue Six but I think I like Migs a little better. I have one from Aquanote but it was the only one I really liked out of many of theirs I listened to. I swear it is the same lady singing the Aquanote's True Love song as in one of Migs called The One. Oh, listen to Franz Ferdinand's Dream Again, it has that same quality I was telling you about that is in Fade Together.

dnurse- I liked that link you posted! When I was listening to it I had my eyes closed and I was picturing myself in an open air tiki bar on an island in the pacific somewhere with locals, not tourists, listening to live music drinking a rum and coke. Then I opened my eyes, saw the wind whipping the bare trees outside, saw the thermometer and had to welcome myself back to reality!!

Brother Iz has maybe the most beautiful voice ever.

I like Migs, but I can't get into them as much as the other bands. Just don't like the voice as much as the other bands.

I've never been to Hawaii. The song makes me want to go there. Maybe one day. Your part of the country is too cold right now. Glad you liked the song.

I'm obsessed with Shakira's Spanish videos. I'm hooked on this song La Tortura. I have some of her cd's but not this song. It's hot. Check it out.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9G5a7T6KFQ - Shakira-La Tortura

If you have time while you are there, listen to Ojos Asi(has belly dancing), Objection-Tango, Suerte(Whenever, Wherever), and Hips Don't Lie and Donde Estas Corazon. She has the prettiest voice and she can really dance.

I don't get the obsession people have with Zappa. I just recently asked someone to take him off of their myspace page!

I'm currently into Duffy's Rockferry album today. Love the songs Breaking My Own Heart, Oh Boy, and Mercy. She has the blues thing down.

This song is very nice. It's about not hearing God. I was at work yesterday thinking about all this stuff in different situations. Maybe it's depressing but it's still pretty. The words are very meaningful. I know if my stethoscope every did what happens in this video, I'd be slapping the hell out of it.

It's very similar to Pandora, but it seems to have those few little things that I enjoyed about Launchcast. I guess we'll see.

I tried it. I typed in Gabriella Cilmi and it created a station that included some of my favorites (like Amy MacDonald and Duffy) along with some others that I wasn't familiar with. So far I liked all the music. That was unusual for me. I have no idea what it can do better than Launchcast since I don't use these types of sites much.

Nigrodamus, slacker.com has been great. I don't know it it's their way of mixing up a radio station with the artist Gabriella Cilmi that makes it great or just her as the baseline. I was listening to it yesterday, and they played a song called Dope by Rocco Deluca that I just loved. I had to go check him out. The lyrics are fun but I'm assuming Dope is just a euphemism and it's cute the way he did it.

Here's a link to the song. Don't listen to the live video, listen to the audio in the right hand corner.

http://www.last.fm/music/Rocco%2BDeluca%2B%2526%2BThe%2BBurden/_/Dope - Dope

I'm not real familiar with Deluca. Anyone like him?

I liked Katie Melua a lot. Thank you! I just added Shy Boy and Halfway Up the Hindu Kush to my playlist. I was just looking through my Rolling Stone reviews and I wasn't liking any of the music that are rated as "must buy now" and I was getting bummed out because I want somthing new. She's perfect for hanging out. Well, her Piece By Piece album seems to be good for that. I liked the blues ones best. On the Road Again and Spider's Web were nice too. Do you like Gabriella Cilmi? She's pretty good too and a little similar. I love her.

The group from the 80's that I really like is The Cars. Prince is pretty good too. When I was in highschool, I thought Led Zepplin was some old brokeup band that stoners listened to. Snowman turned me on to some of their music a few months ago. They're not bad. ;-)

From the 70's, I like that funk style.

I like Pink Floyd's The Wall song.

The greatest early rock bands are Queen, Aerosmith and Van Halen (with DLR).

I can't stand Rush ;-) or that REO Speedwagon group.

Coldplay rules!

Diamond Dave vs. Van Hagar...of course, you and I would be in different Van Halen camps.

Tears for Fears...hmmmm...okay, I'll be nice.

ZZ Top might be in my top. There are so many to consider. It's hard to choose.

INXS..They're from the 80's too right? I love them too.
And Def Leppard. I have to stop.

What do you have against TEARS FOR FEARS Dnurse? They were no more corny than any other 80's bands, but they had better music.

ZZ TOP? Good band, but so 1 dimensional. All of their songs sound alike. The drummer knows 1 beat, and all the songs are based around it. Ugh, ok, I'll be nice.

Sammy Hagar had more respect for the music, his band mates, and life in general. Don't get me wrong, I love DLR. His SKYSKRAPER album is a top 10 album imo.

INXS was good.

Anyone else fans of U2 or Neil Diamond?

Tears for Fears wasn't bad just not my thing.

I guess you are right about ZZ Top but I still like their music. However, I've so outgrown their lyrics. That's one thing I like about Aerosmith, their lyrics are unique.

I like U2's popular hits but I'm not a diehard fan. I recently read an interview of the band in Rolling Stone Magazine that was interesting about how they came up with their newest album. I forgot the man's name, but the man that helped them out with it was the same one that worked with Coldplay on theirs.

I recently bought Neil Diamond's greatest hits! I like him.
