So who in the world is buying all those Brittany albums? I think it's just a ClearChannel conspiracy, myself.
I don't dig old fart music, but I think it's pretty reliable to say that the Beatles are one of the greatest bands ever. Props to Johny Cash, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Cat Stevens, Pat Benetar (a little dated now, though), okay, I'll stop before I just list a chronological list of great singer/bands.
How about revolutionaries? There is too much great music, but so much is just copied (and I don't want to debate the whole "Good artists borrow, great artists steal" thing). I'm talking about originality:
the Beatles (mostly late Beatles)
Ozzy with Black Sabbath
Pearl Jam (debatable, but hey...)
Eminem (this one guy changed the face of rap and pop culture)
Green Day (huh?)
Toad the Wet Sprocket
of coarse The Dead
Jimi Hendrix (I was forgetting the basics)
The Chemical Brothers
the Beastie Boys
the Violent Femmes (way ahead of their time)
I've never heard of anything by them, but my buddy Adam says Pavement.
I think one of the most important trends lately has been the feminine movement within the music industry. Women have been traditionally overlooked or just taken advantage of. Women of extreme importance (politically as well as musically) are Ani DeFranco, Tori Amos, Sarah Machalan, and the Indigo Girls. What makes these women so amazing isn't just that they are taking a stance agains corporate music and making a statement about our culture, but they are awesome musicians and very creative artists. Sadly, rumor has it that Lilith Fair will be no more. Hopefully something will come in to take its place.
One of my personal favorites that no one seems to have heard of is Turin Brakes. They just came out with their second album.

I guess FTG is busy with school back in session. Oh well, she'll just have to catch up.
Isn't music great, though? Such a powerful force.

My absolute favorite; "The Chairman of the Board" *He wasn't given that name for nothing. *I met Sinatra three times...he has class and style...something that none of our current entertainers have and an attribute that is sorely lacking in general society today.
Latin jazz, Samba, Salsa...that is real soul music. *If you can sit still when listening to Sergio Mendez...you are dead. *You just gotta' grab your honey and dance. *His lead female singer, when I saw him, was introduced as a *"wiskey drinkin' cigar smoking, man haten' Carioca" who had a voice that would shatter your drink glass in the back row.
Antonio Carlos Jobim...what can I say except...: [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/blues.gif[/img]

The sound of a fly struggling to get out of a flytrap is music to my ears......
other plesant sounds include jazz and classical to good old bands like Korn, Manson, Nirvana, and the rage filled screams of Eminem...... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
