Help me choose 30 iTunes!

Hello Plebans!

So, I have 30 iTunes that I won here on Interference, and I'd love your help in chosing what songs to buy. Since these were free, I'd like to chose some songs that I wouldn't normally pick for myself. I'm trying to broaden my horizons, and I know you all have excellent musical tastes!

I'll seriously consider anything except country music. That's the only thing I absolutely refuse to listen to. Sorry! I have a pretty open mind, and would love to hear your suggestions!

Have fun, and suggest away! If you have any questions, let me know.

Are you thinking of non-u2 songs?

In that case I'd recommend to check out Snow Patrol.
Q magazine called them the new Coldplay, and if you like them even the slightest you'll surely like Snow Patrol too, and they're kinda more uptempo than Coldplay too and their singer doesn't use his falsetto 24/7 like Chris Martin does.

Here's some 30 second clips of off "Final Straw" one of their better albums:

"Run" and "Chocolate" are my favourites on that one.

"Eyes Open" their latest record isn't too bad neither.

You won the joke contest Thora?! Congratulations!

I really love Huey Lewis and The News. If I had to choose one song specificially by them than it would be Power of Love. Also James Blunt has a great new one out called "High". Oh and recently I discovered Blue October's "Hate Me". Hope this helps you out some,lol.

Thanks so much for your suggestions so far! I'll definitely check them out.

Yes - I'm looking for something other than U2. My musical tastes vary so much. I like everything from Norah Jones to Beastie Boys. Honestly, I'll give anything a chance except country music.

The Corrs have some great tunes
So Young

I dunno if it's on iTunes, but Flogging Molly is hillarious! it's Irish Folk music mixed with rock music!
if they are on iTunes, check out Every Dog Has It's Days

Kasabian has a song called Clubfoot.. and U2 seems to listen to taht song before going onstage... I got it from a friend, and it's pretty good!
some more stuff I like
Arcade Fire - Wake Up
Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Silence
Kaiser chiefs - Oh My God, I predict a Riot
Live - Run To The Water, The Dolphins Cry
Oasis - Wonderwall
Nirvana - Rape Me (do not mind the title, it a song protesting against it )
Kane - Rain Down On Me (dutch band, did a u2 cover tour in their early days, they are HUGE U2 fans)


Hope this helps somehow

They call The Frames' Ireland's best kept secret Adding to that list, download Fitzcarraldo, Red Chord and Finally if you can. I've got a half decent back catalog of their stuff if you're interested.

Bell X1 do a fantastic cover of Heartland. Beautiful Madness, Slowset and Flame are some good songs as well
