    I Like Dis!!!

    Milla Jovovich: SHE SINGS!?!?! Huh!? I loved her in 'The Fifth Element' and 'Resident Evil' (that skirt! Daaaamn!!!).

    Kelly Osbourne: AHAHAHAHAH!!! That song is so funny: "Bla blabla blablablablaaaah!"\

    Bif Naked: She absolutely ROCKS!!! She's got this really special voice and her music is so great... Her lyrics are really deep too. I loved her album "I Bifficus". I like the songs "Any Day Now", "Chotee", and "Lucky Ones"... She's got a bit of an Indian tinge too... And SHE'S CANADIEN!!!

    My Picks...

    1. Alanis Morisette
    2. U2
    3. The Cranberries
    4. Linkin Park
    5. Eminem

    *Bonus: Massive Attack
    *Bonus #2: Prodigy

    You young whippersnappers are gonna luv this .... my top 5 (and I have to say this changes frequently)

    1. Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered .... by Ella Fitzgerald (in my opinion, THE definitive version)
    2. She Loves You .... The Beatles (still gets me boppin' after all these decades)
    3. Cry Me A River .... by Julie London (many have tried, but only Julie does it for me)
    4. Losin' My Mind ... sung by Mel Torme (the old Sondheim song, but only Mel's version GETS to me)
    5. The Nearness of You ... Norah Jones' version on her album. For some reason this song and the say she sings it, is stuck in my head.

  5. #5

    Cool

    In no order whatsoever:


    U2: 'Elvis Presley and America'

    Nine Inch Nails: 'Closer' (all variant mixes thereof)

    Led Zeppelin: 'Ramble on'

    Janes Addiction: 'Jane Says'

    Nina Simone: 'Sinnerman'

    Favourite performers and my fave songs from each.

  6. #6

    Cool

    I have some odd ones myself:

    Elizabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins)
    Matt Johnson (The The just because of 'Soul Mining')
    Morrissey/Jonny Marr (The Smiths)
    Heppner/Reinhardt (Wolfsheim)
    Marc Almond

    A single song doesn't make an Artist my all time favorite.

    No? And what about "Hotel California" by the Eagles then?

    Anyway - here are mine (in no particular order whatsoever):

    * Roxette
    * Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler (going solo)
    * Martina McBride
    * Shania Twain
    * Faith Hill

    just falling out of the top 5:

    * Crash Test Dummies (only the first 3 albums however ... )
    * Queen (only the 2 greatest hits-albums & Made in Heaven)
    * AC/DC (but only from the mid '80s on - I dislike them back in the '70s)
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story!

    Genres anyone? No one crosses over? Ah hell, I have to give best of in genres I'm afraid.

    At the moment:

    Ella (Jazz)

    Billy (Blues)

    Cash (Country)

    Eminem (Rap)

    Rammstein (Loud)

    Kate Bush and/or DeadCanDance and/or CocteauTwins (Art)

    Catherine Wheel and/or Remy Zero (Rock)

    Wolfsheim and/or Shriekback (Pop)

    Enya or McKennit (New Age)

    Lightfoot (Folk)

    Rogers and Hammerstein (Musicals)

    Hovhaness and/or Vaughan Williams and/or Holst (New Classical)

    ...incomplete....all is subject to change, but all is real at the time of posting.

    To limit oneself to being crazy about music from just one branch is....crazy. There is SO MUCH good music out there. And you can't close your ears, so listen.

    Can I go back to sleep now?

    Cool

    I love the female voice but don't generally care for the male voice, so my list is somewhat biased.

    • Enya........ 'Cursum Perficio'
    • Kate Bush.......'Wow'
    • Lesley Garrett........ 'Dome epais' (duet from Lakme - Delibes)
    • Yungchen Lhamo....... All
    • Bjork....... 'Human behaviour'

    !!!

    - I love Enya and Laureena McKennitt... If you like that kind of mysterious celtic Irish music... Try some 'DEAD CAN DANCE'!!! You hear the heavens in their music!!!

    - BJORK!!! Man she rocks... I love experimental music...

    - I think Marilyn Manson is also great.

    - I dunno much about trance... I like more hard edged techno/jungle/breakbeats n stuff... Anyone like BT, Dj Diesel Boy etc?

    Liz Fraser is the singer of the band 'Cocteau Twins'. And she is the closest thing to an angel (except for my wife of course).

    Want a sample of the Cocteau Twins? I recommend:

    'Iceblink Luck'
    'Heaven or Las Vegas'
    and
    'Aikea-Guinea'
