Favorite Music

Page history last edited by Jack 11 years, 2 months ago

Check out this NYC-based rap rock band Kongcrete.They have just released their debut album. Here's the myspace page: www.myspace.com/kongcrete

 

 

 

 

My new fave is James Morrison.  Waiting for that second album to come out.  Hope it's as great as the first.

http://www.jamesmorrisonmusic.com/  Check it out and listen to his tunes.

 

 

 

Hi Latin Music Lover

My favorite music is Reggaeton. It's very fast music with good beat. Here are a couple of well popluar musicians of this genre.

 

 

Reggaeton HitsEl Cartel: The Big BossDa Hit Man Presents Reggaeton LatinoPerfect Melody

 

 

 My favorite song of late is "Days of Elijah".  Exciting and inspiring!

ficuscat.com

 

 

 

 

Abuela also loves all kinds of music but not a lot of any one thing. 

  • I agree that The Beatles are the alpha and omega, all time greatest. I resent RAIN and like groups that try to recreate or imitate great music of previous generations. So many new artists can't create a song and sound that's new and lasting so we get rap, sex, violence and vulgarity instead.
  • Favorites of today include Christian, Latin, soul, soft rock, that which is melodic and original. I can also appreciate a bit of reggae, some country, classical and operatic.
  •  Various songs and artists come on the scene or to my ear and I love it for awhile then move on to something else. The Three tenors, Il Divo, and the like are also ok. The sweet sound of Kenny G can also move me. 
  • Would like to learn more about  mp3, embedding, etc. but perhaps too old and not enough spare time.
     

 

The best band now and forever, the alpha and the omega of music - is the BEATLES!  Enough said.  - Jairia 

 

 

 

 

If you ever need some cheering up there is no band better than The Salteens. I first heard them maybe 6 years ago when they came to Australia and they're still my favourite band (even though they've released nothing new in quite a few years). Their music is the perfect soundtrack to a sunny day. Highly recommended. You can listen to them on their myspace website.

 

 

 

Graeme Connors has just released a new album as a joint project with Fiddler's Feast called the Last Suppeteers.  It is a fantastic album, really upbeat with some great melodies and truly sensational lyrics.  Graeme is an fantastic Australian artist who is identified as Country but I think he doens't strictly fit into that,, his style is more contemporary. I have been listening to Graeme's music for over 16 years, he has large number of albums with various styles over that time.  Check out his website www.graemeconnors.com and you can listen to some of his music and also look at what he has produced over the years.  His latest album as I have mentioned is really worth a listen, even if you just here the song about the boat it's worth it - it's an excellent collboration with another young songwriter.  Also check out the previous album "It's all good" as it is like a best hits album (he has reworked some of the old favourites), with a couple of newies.

Anyone loving music from the disco era - try the Young Divas. Not only are they great Australian young talent, but they sing great music too. (At least I think so!!!) With songs like "It's Raining Men", "What A Feeling", "Gloria" and much more. They are young women finalists from the Australian Idol series. Give it a go!

Just too many to mention but a very long love affair with anything Peter Gabriel.I am particularly fond of Homer Simpson's "I gave my love a chicken' -try finding it!! the challenge is on..

 

 

 


 

When it comes to music I am a country girl. The Australian country music scene has many wonderful artists. My favoutites include Lee Kernaghan and his current album The New Bush.

Adam Harvey with his new album I'm Doin' Alright and Beccy Cole with Live @ Lizotte's.

 

Favorite Music

 

My favorite music of the moment is Pink, even Puddy likes listening to her.

 

If you would to hear something really different, listen to an Iranian guitarist called Armic. I guess you could liken his music to flamenco. I guarantee you will enjoy his stunning playing and find your toe tapping. Try this video clip: www.esnips.com/doc/14fe5859-da9d-42b8-8ec6-2d9e4010da43/guitarist

!

Though my tastes change from day to day, it seems, I've been on a bluegrass/traditional/flatpicking kick for a while (Tony Rice, Norman Blake, Doc Watson, Bill Monroe, etc.) Another standby has been renaissance lute music, with Paul O'Dette being a notable performer. As for rock, gimme Dylan, Dead, Radiohead, Phish, Zeppelin, Queens of the Stone Age...the list goes on. And as for jazz, who can deny Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman or Pat Metheny?

 

RADIOHEAD !!! Go to youtube, search under radiohead, and listen away.

 

 

*Give me Portishead, give me Massive Attack and give anything by studio one and im in my happy place ZZZZOOO0MMMM.

 

 

Yes, Massive Attack - thought i was the only person in Aust who likes them -, Portishead, Clare Boditch, the Marie Antoniette Soundtrack is great, and a recent addition as I slide in middle age, Snow Patrol.... 

 

 

Salsa can't be beat cause it makes me want to dance and I can't dance!

 

Josh Groban is a brilliant Pop/Classical singer.His music inspires me with my Art. Katerina 

 

Do you have a favorite cd? A title that you'd like to share? Use this space to add your favorites ...

 

 

*I like Italian music, especially their love songs.

 

*Tim McGraw is my favorite. I just love the way he sings the song and make you believe every word he says.

 

  • Classic country music is my favorite, especially Loretta Lynn, Conway Twitty and Ann Murray.

 

  • right now? My Morning Jacket.

 

  • I can always tap my toes to bluegrass, especially Jack White and Alison Krauss and Union Station.

 

  • Lately, I can't stop listening to Browntown's new single "Gimme Down Pee-paw's Beartrap", Bugsy Bordeaux's french hippie-techno masterpiece, "Goat Cola", Goatmonster's new doom-dirge-sludge-metal children's album, "Go to Your Room", and the new Nirvana album. (Kurt Cobain has never sounded better!)

 

  • Good Rock / Pop? For me it's The Beatles, The Stones, The Cars, The Police, Yes, SRV, STP, Red Hot Chili Peppers... melody has to be a top consideration... long live the 70's and all those who prescribe to that ethic!

 

  • Favorite music prople/groups would have to be The Beatles, Metallica, Nickel Creek, Johnny Cash, Iron Maiden, Eric Clapton, and Alice in Chains. Some favorite songs: Day in the Life (Beatles), Nothing Else Matters (Metallica), Green and Gray (Nickel Creek), Boy Named Sue (Cash), Blood Brothers (Iron Maiden), Traveling Light (Clapton), Man in the Box (Alice in Chains).

 

  • Anyone like some good rock? check out Godsmack, Our Lady Peace, Velvet Revolver, System of a Down, to name a few. If I had to narrow it down to my all-time favorite, it would probably be Our Lady Peace, they are great and they have a very unique sound, i think.

 

  • Music is an amazing thing. There are some commendable artists of different styles.

 

  • One of my favorite CDs is "The Breakthrough MJB". I had the pleasure of seeing her in concert this past weekend in NYC and she was AWESOME! Mary J's music is a combination of soulful R&B, rap, and hip hop that I've enjoyed listening to since her first CD in 1992. DS

 

 

  • I appreciate christian praise music from various artists including Sonic Flood, Point of Grace, and Kathy Troccoli...at least.. Barbara Streisand (I wish my voice was this good), Linda Ronstadt(I wish my voice was this good)...That's to mention a few....jtme

 

  • My favorite of all times "Main Street" by Bob Seger. H.M.
  • "Fox Confessor Brings the Flood" by Neko Case - my favorite by far this year.

 

  • My favorite recording artist is Van (the man) Morrison. His music is SO soulful and uplifting. I'm also very fond of The Indigo Girls. Great lyrics, great harmony. They also do real honest, unpretentious work. - Neily

 

 

  • "Libera" by British boy choir Libera - sweet voices singing traditional Latin hymns with a synthesizer twist...so cool! I've listened to several of their CDs and like their self-titled album best. - F. Stone

 

  • If you want to get your groove on, check out "Turkish Groove" on Putmayo Records. It's a blend of Turkish folk, pop, dance and a little rap. Shelia B

 

  • "The River in Reverse" by Elvis Costello and Allen Tousaint. It will be on every top ten list at the end of the year. Ed M.

 

  • John Cale's "Paris 1919" is always a classic. CS

 

  • Any music that has a good beat to it. It can be rock, jazz, folk, or some country artists. R. Kuehl

 

  • Rockapella While I like all kinds of music this group is pretty cool. And if you have seen the Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego game show on PBS many years ago you will already know this group. Jersey Librarian

 

  • Worker's Playtime by Billy Bragg. An excellent modern english folk album that shows that folk music doesn't have to be jolly ploughboys. Ian Rennie.

 

  • I am a huge Elton John fan. I like a little bit of everything, though oldies and American standards are probably my favorites. I remember asking my mom when I was about 8 if there would be "really oldies" radio stations when I was grown-up. I had figured out that the music that was current at the time would be my generation's oldies, and I was worried that 50's and 60's music would no longer be on the radio. Library Lil

 

  • Social Distortion, Bob Marley, Nirvana, Pavement, Rolling Stones, Skynyrd, Johnny Cash, Eric B. & Rakim, Beastie Boys, 2Pac and so many more. A friend turned me onto the Drive By Truckers the other day - good stuff and PLCMC owns it! Check it out - Michael Lambert a.k.a. "freed librarian"

 

  • Jazz of all sorts. An excellent site with good articles and reviews is All About Jazz They give away a free MP3 file every day, featuring excellent contemporary players, famous and new artists alike. - Mark S

 

  • I have so many favorites that I cannot pick just one. Right now the Soundtrack to Garden State is my favorite CD. It is a nice mix of relaxing acoustic guitar among other things. crazyhorse

 

  • I have too many favorites to name just one, so I'll name a few of them: Simple Plan, Green Day, Sum 41, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride....I could go on a for a few pages....Amy/ST

 

  • I have too many to name but if it's World Folkfusion, I probably will like it. However, I'm partial to Tuvan and Scandinavian bands like Yat-Kha and Hedningarna. ~ MKyle

 

  • I just saw Calexico in Chapel Hill. They're one of the best live bands around.-Ruddy Rocky Pinnacle

 

  • I really like Andrea Bocelli - One of his newest CDs "Amore" is a favorite.

 

  • Love Celtic Music of all sorts, from the traditional strains of the Chieftains to the kilt-ripping sounds of Neil Anderson, Clannandrumma, Seven Nations, Black47. And if you have never heard Dolores Keane sing Summer Of My Dreams, you have missed much. Am also intrigued by certain movie soundtracks: Braveheart, Apollo 13, Gladiator amongst them. nancynoreen

 

  • I like Weird Al. His new CD Straight Outta Lynwood just came out on Sept. 26, 2006. He is a very talented artist who parodies but also writes original humorous songs and every time a new CD comes out people are so impressed! But then they say, "I didn't know he was still doing stuff." Anyway, check it out. Weird Al's official website And here's a link to his new video. White & Nerdy music video

 

  • Two of my favorite bands ever are Better Than Ezra and Jimmy Eat World. I've been able to see BTE quite a few times, and they are so great live! Their newest CD "Before the Robots" is really great. Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to see Jimmy Eat World in concert yet, but I keep checking their website to see when they are touring near here! Jessica/MOR

 

  • Oh my goodness! BTE is my favorite band, too! I can't even count the number of times I've seen them live. Every show has been a great experience! Check out their website here. - Erin/IB

 

 

  • I'm a huge country music fan. Kenny Chesney puts on a great live show! My new favorite artists are Jake Owen, Jason Aldean and Sugarland. ~ Bookgirl11

 

*I love world music. (African, Cuban, Native American, Reggae). Bigshot's Daughter

 

  • I enjoy folksy acoustical music with strong female vocals such as Mary Chapin Carpenter and Carrie Newcomer. SMc

 

  • I dig The Beatles, Janis Joplin, Van Morrison, The Shins, The Decemberists, Tori Amos, Kings of Leon, The Smiths, The Cure, Natalie Merchant, Jeff Buckley, Joseph Arthur, Otis Redding, The Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello, Billie Holiday and so very many more! Sarah Jo

 

  • I enjoy a variety of music but lately I have been listening mostly to contemporary christian. I enjoy the WOW cds. This is a great way to hear a variety of artists without owning an extensive cd collection. I can't wait for the mp3 player so I can keep some of my favorite tunes handy at all times. readlotsofbooks

 

  • I love Elvis Costello, XTC, Pearl Jam, Violent Femmes, The Who, Elton John, James Taylor, and a wide wide wide variety of other artists. Right now, I am so into Ok Go that I cannot stop listening to their CDs. I believe it's become an addiction. But I suppose there are worse things to be addicted to... --LL

Harry Connick, Jr., Los Lonely Boys, Leahy, Eileen Ivers, Stevie Ray Vaughn - some of my favorites Purple Librarian

 

My favourites at the moment are The Fratellis, very beaty, Butterfingers and Regina Spektor...there's so much music out there and so little time.

 

I love country, especially Big & Rich and Rascal Flatts ~ Linda

 

  • Any of you library folks ever hear of Saigon Kick? They had some crazy music back in the 80's, but were very virsital, playing from ballads, to rock, and everywhere in between. One of thier finest, Chanel, is creative and fun. Be sure to check out "Love is on the way," another favorite of mine. -- the Zookeeper

 

Some of my favorites are Descendents, Cure, Beck, Stellastarr, Face to Face, Prince, Replacements, Llyod Cole and the list goes on and on. Flight of the Concords (the new HBO show) has a CD that just came out and it is hilarious, of course. -Jennifer

 

I know this is a bit weird, but I really enjoyed a concert by the US string quartet "Ethel" last year. Their official website is Ethel . I also like conventional chamber music - Mendelssohn, Shostakovitch, Brahms, etc - Oscar the Grouch

 

Currently I'm rocking to my lil brother's Finger Eleven CD. Since I have a short attention span....It it currently my favorite.

 

Nick of CCLC loves:

Red Hot Chili Peppers (my all time favourite band-such an awesome mixture of sounds), Placebo (Crazy cool lyrics

and great guitars), Anberlin (awesome old school emo), The Butterfly Effect (I saw them at the Hi Fi bar and I was

in the front row), plus older music, ie: The Beatles, ABBA, The Beegees, most music from the 60's and 70's...

 

I have been listening to county music for the last 35 years. My husband converted me. I love anything by Toby Keith. I own several of his cd's. I also like the sound of Keney Chesney, Lorrie Morgan, and the Statler Brothers. But you really can't take the rock out of the girl. I still love my oldies from the late 50's; 60's and early 70's.--pumpkin parlour

 

I'm loving Annie Lennox's Songs of Mass Destruction right now. -- D.I. Bookwoman

 

I love world music - cajan, fado, gypsy, klezmer, tex/mex/Mexican, zydeco...Anything with an accordion, balalaida, bouzouki or zither & anything South American with a harp.. music for dance: csardas, flamenco, polka, tango, waltz... Quester

 

 

  • Frank Sinatra is my all-time fave. And, I am not in my eighties. I was born in the '80s, though...
  • I love a diverse range of musics from Indian pop, Indian classical, Techno, Funk, Qawwalli, Arabic, Rai.  At the present I can't get enough of the haunting voice of Abida Parveen, a Pakistani Qawwalli singer.  She is fantastic.  I heard Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan when he came to Adelaide for the WOMAD festival.  A beautiful performance on dusk after a 43 degree day.  Another favourite of mine is Moroccan composer/singer Abdelwahab Doukali.

 

I love all kinds of music.  From country, to hip hop, to rock, to oldies.  My all time favorite artist, though, is Michael Jackson!  He might be a little weird, but he is an amazing artist all the same!  ~Kim M.

 

 My taste is eclectic to say the least ... love Regina Spektor (hey, someone else up there too!), a small obsession with mika (if lollipop doesn't make your feet tap i worry about you), missy higgins, evanescene, etc etc etc etc.  :Donna

 

Despite of my age I love Coyote Ugly - probably because of grate movie with the same name.

 

Anything I can dance to.  Cab Calloway for lindy hop, Shakira for samba, Secret Garden for waltz, Marc Anthony for cha cha, Frank Sinatra for fox trot.

 

 Gotta love U2 - cliched I know, but that's the way it is. Also Australian bands - The Angels are making a comeback, and I always had a soft spot for Midnight Oil. Missy Higgins is a great performer to see live as well.

 

Son of famed musician Steve Earle, Justin Townes Earle is starting his musical career with a great first album. Have a listen. http://www.myspace.com/justintownesearle

 

Rich Mullins...my all-time favorite artist.  Changed my life.  The first time I listened to his "Songs" album, I kept remarking, "I love ALL of these songs...I can't believe they're all so good!"  There aren't too many albums you can say that about (even greatest hits albums).

Seeing as almost everyone's favorite music seems to have been written in the last 20 years, I'll throw in a couple of other tracks. On the less popular front, I have always really enjoyed pieces such as Resphigi's 'Pines of Rome', Stravinski's 'Rite of Spring', almost anything by Bach and a lot of 20th century choral music. In addition, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Weather Report and Chick Corea are a minute few of my great and enormously listenable jazz favorites.

My favourite band is Bon Jovi. I like all of their music. At the moment I'm listening to their latest album, 'The Circle' with 'Superman Tonight' and 'We weren't born to follow' as my favourite songs. I can't wait for when they start the Australian leg of their world tour.
