I hope they have synthesizers and drum machines in heaven

As much as people call electronic music cold and unemotive, some of it is the most ethereal and pristinely beautiful sounding stuff I think I've heard, especially if you slap on a good female vocalist

here's for some examples (feel free to add any you see fit)

Orbital - Halcyon, on & on
Lamb - Heaven
Peace Orchestra - Shining
Craig Armstrong - This Love
Mandalay - Beautiful (Remix)
Vangelis - Rachel's Song (Blade Runner Soundtrack)
William Orbit - Water from a Vine Leaf (ft Beth Orten)
Everything But The Girl - Missing You

I posted this at another board but i think you folks might be able to give me some less pretentious examples

if that is the case, I need to know now so I can go do as many bad things as possible with the time I have left.

I couldn't agree more, Skeek. If I may say a few words...

I listen to a lot of electronic music compared to most people I know. I especially listen to trance, and the name is completely apropos. So many times I've listened to a trance mix and it has sent me into another state of mind. There are so many beautiful electronic songs and some very talented vocalists out there (Justine Suissa probably being one of the best). A 'few' of my favorite electronic songs:

Dumonde - See the Light
Weekend Players - Jericho
Lamb - Stronger
Paul Oakenfold - Hypnotized
Ashiva - Sunrise
Deepsky - Talk Like a Stranger
Starecase - Faith
Andain - Summer Calling
Motorcycle - As the Rush Comes
Oceanlab feat. Justine Suissa - Satellite
Armin Van Buuren feat. Justine Suissa - Burned With Desire
Lasgo - Alone
4 Strings - Take Me Away
Iio - At the End, Rapture
Tiesto - In My Memory
Ballroom - Come Along!
Push - Tranzey State of Mind
Tricky - Christiansands
Jan Johnston - Flesh
Dntel - Anywhere Anyone
Deep Forest - Yuki Song, Will You Be Ready
Evolution - Walking on Fire
BT - Superfabulous, Somnambulist, Communicate, The Force of Gravity

I know most people won't know these songs, but I love all of them. In some ways it's sad that not too many people in the U.S. listen to electronic music, but that just means more for me.

Air - Alone In Kyoto
Portishead - Glory Box
Massive Attack - Teardrop
M83 - Run Into Flowers
Dntel - Umbrella
Postal Service - Such Great Heights

and of course Joy Division and Kraftwerk

oo completely forgot about m83!.. yes run into flowers is just beautiful

so here's some more while im here:
m83 - cyborg (on heavy rotation right now)
new order - all day long
skinny puppy - killing game (not so much beautiful or ethereal =p.. but excellent electronic music anyway)
ministry- stigmata

ive found scaring myself silly listening to skinny puppy late at night...

Tricky, Portishead and Massive are electro? I thought that kinda stuff was called trip-hop

depeche mode, kraftwerk etc. are classical electro, excuse the labelling, however

or do i misinterprete the difference between electro and electronic music?
