I somehow hoped to learn about some great, new music. Instead everyone here seems to be living in the past.

Here are just some of my favourites (in no particular order) to make you ponder even more:

Kate Bush

Stevie Nicks

The Bee Gees

The Beatles

Fleetwood Mac (Mick and the two couples)

The Mamas And The Papas

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a musician myself and can appreciate all kinds of music...except for Blümchen and Vocal House maybe....I was just expecting a bit more...out of line.

Hmm i love music so there are no 5 best bands for me, but ok lets go.

  1. SymphonyX
  2. Dream Theater
  3. Pantera
  4. Behemoth
  5. Blümchen
  6. Opeth

 

Find the error?

You only snuck Blümchen in there for comedic reasons, didn’t you? O_o

You got me ;)   But I must admit that i actually listen to different types of music. Rock and metal were always there, but everything else too, so when I was like 17 or something I actually both her album;)    (but to years prior i both The Great Southern Trendkill soooo... I'm forgiven ?;)

I don't have great music for You, but strange one... maybe Fantomas (and-or) Mr. Bungle? I know they are a little "different" but maybe reading about them might make it more approachable.

Now I see that You are from Germany... no wonder Blümchen was a red flag for You  (hahahahaha - I'm just ashamed of myself;)

I keep all new songs I like in Youtube playlists per year. Maybe there are some songs in there that you'll like.

It's mostly indie & rock.



Around the Network

1. Dan Haseltine - His distinctive voice has no equal! Lead singer of Jars of Clay (favourite band ever) and his side project The Hawk In Paris. With Jars of Clay they have released some of the best albums of all time (self-titled debut, The Long Fall Back to Earth, Inland, among others). They constantly reinvent their sound for each album, so it is almost like listening to a different band each time. While this risk did indeed lose them their mainstream audience in the 90s, I love them more for it. He has released one solid album with The Hawk In Paris (for serious 80s synth pop lovers!), and a few solo singles.

2. Darren Hayes/Savage Garden - Do I need to introduce Savage Garden? His solo efforts are a mixed bag IMO, but his latest, Secret Codes and Battleships could have been SG's third album. Many great songs that take me back to my adolescent years. Great and unique voice too.

3. U2 - Everyone knows U2. I only really discovered them last year. I know, I know. I'm a little late to the party. This is the one band where I love almost all of their major singles. Most of the time I'm left wondering why a band chose a certain song to represent/promote their albums, but U2 seems to know what they are doing. Also, Ultraviolet (live) from the 360 tour is so addicting!

4. Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch and FM Static - great rock voice. Both his main and side bands are fantastic and different from each other. Though some of their songs sound the same, when they release a good song, it's out of this world. Great for fans of Linkin Park. FM Static is a softer side project. He also does great collabs (see Manafest).

5. Paper Route - again, great distinct voice. Out of their 3 albums I can say that 2 are outstanding (Peace of Wild Things and Real Emotion), never heard their first album, save for the single "Carousel" which is great! Their song "Chariots" was featured on Fifa 17 or 16, I can't remember, so some of you may have heard them without knowing it!

Hahaha no need to...we have much more trashy German/Euro junk from the 90ies and we actually like to listen to stuff like this sometimes as well...when we’re very drunk preferably ;))

Thx for the tips. I know Mr. Bungle and Fantomas...you seem to be a Mike Patton fan :)

Thx man, I’ll give it a listen.



I'll go with the artists for which I have the most plays on Last.fm:

1. Madonna - Admittedly, it's been a while since I've truly obssesed over one of her albums (last one would be Confessions on a Dancefloor) but there's no denying her 30+ years of pop goodness.
2. Metric - Canadian indie rock band that I love to pieces. Emily Haines' voice puts me in a trance.
3. No Doubt - Their return album was "meh" but I still love this band. Tragic Kingdom and Return of Saturn are among my favorite albums ever
4. P!nk - Bad ass, authentic, fun, incredible performer, pop music with something to say
5. Muse - The trio of albums - Origin of Symmetry, Absolution and Black Holes and Revelations - won't ever be beat.

Out of these 5, No Doubt are the only ones I haven't seen live.
