So this is at the moment, yeah? I'm leaving U2 off because I never listen to them, and they haven't released anything in a while, so even though they're my favourite band of all time (or at least tied), they're not one of my favourite bands at the moment. Enough waffling; here you go:

1. Starsailor (Silence Is Easy....mostly for the live aspect of this's just so sing-a-long)
2. Ed Harcourt (Sugarbomb.... and I have no other place to vent this, but I am SOOOOOOOO upset that I can't find one of my Ed singles )
3. Idlewild (These Are Just Years)
4. Doves (Cedar Room)
5. Elbow (Asleep In the Back)
6. Tom McRae (Streetlight)
7. Seafood (Similar Assassins)
8. Mojave 3 (A Room With a View)
9. Granada (Amazing It Seems)
10. Kent (Duett)

ooh...i can only list 5 cause past that, all the bands i listen to are about even playing field...

and i'm such a rollercoaster fan...i cycle between these five as to which is my favorite, so i'll just list them all. and there's no way i can list just one song...i'll try to stick to a couple. so really i'm just indecisive...

radiohead-exit music, street spirit, just, paranoid android

u2-please, love is blindness, rtss, n and s of the river

jeff buckley-what will you say, morning theft, lover you should've come over, jewel box

rem-nightswimming, daysleeper, beat a drum, why not smile, sweetness follows, at my most beautiful

sigur ros-staralfur, olsen olsen, #1, #7

*side note* u2 is in there, but i haven't had a u2 kick in months upon months...
