    Default Albums & Songs You Should Be Listening To...

    After hearing all of the new artists performing on the AMA's stunk, I decided to start this thread to reminisce and praise old and new artists who are unique and wonderful. Songs or Albums.

    I nominate Dr. Buzzard's Old Savannah Band. The wrote Cherchez La Feem and the album title is the band name.

    I've never heard anything to interesting and upbeat in YEARS.

    Please start sharing. I'm a music head and I love hearing and discovering new and old music....

    Jeff Buckley's album "Grace" and in particular his cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"

    Iron & Wine's "The Creek Drank the Cradle." You can currently hear their version of the Postal Service's "Such Great Heights" in an M&M's commercial.

    Death Cab for Cutie "Transatlantacism"

    Tori Amos "From the Choirgirl Hotel"

    The Cure "The Head on the Door"

    Muse "The Origin of Symmetry" and "Absolution"

    Red House Painters "Songs for a Blue Guitar"

    Mazzy Star "Among My Swan"

    Tanya Donelly "Beautysleep"

    50 Foot Wave "Golden Ocean"

    Red House Painters "Songs for a Blue Guitar"
    i definitely agree with you abou those three albums.
    i love music! here are some of my favourites.

    *tom waits. possibly my favourite musician ever. it's all good, but some of my favourite albums are 'frank's wild years', 'foreign affairs', 'rain dogs', 'closing time', 'heartattack and vine', and 'nighthawks at the diner', which is probably the best live performance ever.

    *talking heads. so many good albums, but definitely 'stop making sense', 'fear of music' and 'sand in the vaseline'

    *nick cave. my faves are 'the boatman's call' and 'murder ballads' (especially 'henry lee', the duet with pj harvey)

    *wu-tang clan. and a lot of their solo stuff. i love the 'ghost dog' soundtrack, 'enter the wu-tang', 'the w', 'iron flag'. i think people are turned off hip-hop by the crap that's on the radio, but there's also so much good stuff out there

    *wilco. 'yankee hotel foxtrot'

    *blur. 'think tank'. the whole album is perfection

    *devendra banhart. 'nio rojo'

    *nick drake

    *air. 'talkie walkie'

    *lambchop. great band from nashville. kind of a country band (alt country), but sort of obsessed with soul (curtis mayfield mostly), there's 13 of them, and they're like nothing you've ever heard. and they're one of the best live bands i've ever seen. i especially love 'what another man spills' and 'nixon'

    *calexico. love them all, especially 'hot rail'

    *aesop rock. 'bazooka tooth'

    *the streets. 'a grand don't come for free'

    *blackalicious. 'blazing arrow'

    *vinicius de mores, toquinho, joao and astrud gilberto, antonio carlos jobim, milton nascimento, maria bethania and all the other classic brazilian singers. my parents had all their albums, as well as stan getz' samba records, so i grew up listening to them, and they're still staples in my cd collection.

    I love these two!

    I'm not good at remembering album titles and such...

    * Bright Eyes
    * John Denver
    * R.E.M. - Up
    * Radiohead - OK Computer
    * Azure Ray - Azure Ray

    ... are those I can remember right now
    Mmm... Am I wrong, or did it just get fatter in here?

    *Cowboy Mouth - Are You With Me?
    Cowboy Mouth is a cross between rock, country, pop, etc. They are well known as a Mardi Gras party band.

    *Duran Duran's Greatest Hits
    I know I know.....Duran Duran??? Yes. This album is one of those that you can put on and play through over and over and it never gets annoying.

    Ok I know Im going to get slammed for this one but I got the new Enya CD and it is excellent especially when you are enjoying a warm cup of coffee and laying back enjoying the day.
    And you cant go wrong with Grover Washington Jr's Soulful Strut.

    Double jackpot. I've listened to Grace hundreds of times, and it never tires. Totally amazing.
