Ah, I'm pretty wide ranging :happy:

Btw, if I had to listen to girlie pop a la Lily Allen I'd rather go with Kate Nash. Similar but a little bit more interesting.

Eagles of Death Metal, Drive-By Truckers, Florence and the Machine, Dragonette, the Avett Brothers, and the XX are all very good bands.

I bleedin' hate Florence and her flamin' machine. Pretentious, boring old tripe imo - needs a dose of punk to blast that sort of stuff out of the scene just now imo...

I'm not buying a three day ticket to my local festival because she's headlining on the Friday. Ugh.

Otoh the XX are quite interesting :happy:

Pandora.com is pretty cool also (Yoda clued me into this), you create your own station, and it suggests other songs you may like. Give each song a thumbs up or thumbs down to refine the song selections.

Here's my "Rockers" station if you want a starting point:

Pandora is awesome. I plug my phone into my car's audio and it's like your own personal radio station with no ads.

Just gave a quick scan through their Everyday Demons album. This guy is pretty good. This one made it onto my player. Thanks!

The singer from The Answer reminds me of the late Ray Gillen from Badlands.

One of the coolest tunes I've heard from The Answer is "Never Too Late", from an '06 album called Rise.

If you didn't catch Badlands the first time around when they put out their debut in '89 and follow-up in '91, check them out too.

Hmm, dunno if it's available on the continent, but we get it here. Never really bothered too much tbh, but it seems v popular with peoples.

I thought you could get it actually - kinda assumed it was merkin. There might be license issues though?

I love the singles soundtrack too!

Thing is, it plays like an album, not a soundtrack, which shows the genius of Cameron Crowe, in using music in movies.

The last song, Drown by Smashing Pumpkins, one of their best .. great, graet song.

Yep - not available here yet. Open some places - open with invite only others. I can access it via a proxy server in the UK or FR but it is still asking for an invite code ...

Sorry, I'm not in on it I'm afraid - I thought I'd tried it out, I think it used to be a freebie. But no more anyway :-(

That and "Take You Away" by The Chelsea Smiles were my two favorite songs of 2009.
