Big Grin Recommend me some good music!

Hey everyone, I thought it would be a great idea if I made a thread where I asked you all to recommend me some good songs or even music groups to look into.

Name one, name three, name as many as you like!

Thanks!

I can make you a good Ryan mix, if you like.

What is your musical taste at the moment? By answering this it's a bit easier to recommend music that you might like.

My personal picks would include:
Urban Dance Squad
Spearhead
Elvis Costello
Aretha Franklin
Bruce Springsteen
Pearl Jam
Jimi Hendrix
too many others to mention.

I always suggest Ryan anyway. I like whoring him out.

It's also no coincidence I started with the UDS.

Yes, tell us the sort of music you like, then the recommendations can be more personalised to you...alternatively say what U2 songs you like or whatever and i'll try to recommend bands that make similar music.

I would always reccomend The Verve, Travis and Oasis, though.

*just saw that you mentioned liking Ryan in another thread...and I already acknowledged it*

What stuff of Ryan's do you have? If you have his official releases, I could get you started on some gigs and other unofficial goodies.

I think you want something catchy and rocking in which case you will want to be listening to

Cooper Temple Clause (download the song Amber or New Toys)
The Shins (all of the album 'Chutes Too Narrow')
Franz Ferdinand (check out "Take me Out", "Darts of Pleasure")
Muse (listen to the songs Bliss, Sing for Absolution)

singer/songwriter stuff:

Elliott Smith (listen to Waltz #2, Between the Bars, Needle in the Hay)
Rufus Wainwright (April Fools, Imaginary Love, Go or Go Ahead)

what else do you like? do you like electronic music, dance, etc...

I recommend Ash

fun, summery punk-pop with the most amazingly catchy melodies

I also recommend some weirdo Welsh band, Manic Street Sweepers or something.

Bettie Serveert - the best Dutch band ever (even better than UDS )
Over the Rhine - amazing voice
Groove Armada - needs no explanation
