    I thought we might have a little topic devoted to music. What are your favorite songs at the moment? Bands? Artists? Genre?

    Perhaps get some recommendations too.

    I'll start then:

    The songs I generally listen to all seem to fit in the alternative genre. I do listen to songs from other genres, although I'm not a particular fan of metal and rap.

    Favorite songs at the moment:
    Gang of Rhythm by Walk Off The Earth
    Pompeii by Bastille
    Wetsuit by The Vaccines
    Shooting Stars & Fairy Tales by Mrs.Greenbird
    Elle me dit by MIKA

    The Vaccines
    Mrs. Greenbird
    Boy & Bear
    The Cranberries
    Jim Croce
    Of Monsters and Men
    77 Bombay Street

    And a song to listen to, the music video is awesome.

    Ooooh, dangerous business starting a music thread... for me that is. I could talk music all day long.

    I think my general taste is alternative rock and singer-songwriters. I also love hip hop, opera, heavy metal, classic and some folksy country stuff. And pop if it's very good.

    At the moment I love these:
    Emilie Autumn - especially Rapunzel, Juliet, Remember, Shalott, I Want My Innocence Back and I Will Swallow (because Roo loves them)
    Vienna Teng - the whole "Aims" album, especially Copenhagen and Level Up (it was release this week!!)
    Tori Amos - Ribbons Undone, Liquid Diamonds, Lust, Pandora's Aquarium, 1000 Oceans, Merman, Pretty Good Year, Twinkle (well, I always listen a lot to Tori, her albums are never far from the record player, at the moment we love The Beekeeper, Choirgirl, Venus, Pink and Pele very much)
    Rufus Wainwirght - the Poses album, especially Greek Song and Rebel Prince
    Bat for Lashes - The Haunted Man, Lilies and Marilyn in particular
    Goldfrapp - Happiness, Roo likes to dance to this one
    Neverending White Lights - the Love Will Ruin album
    Emiliana Torrini - Big Jumps, again, Roo likes to dance to this one
    Kate Bush - the Aerial, a Sky of Honey album
    Fiona Apple - Get Gone and I Know, but I love the whole When the Pawn... album
    Greg Laswell - the Landline album, Nicely Played, Come back Down and Dragging You Around are big hits with little miss A

    I hardly ever put on just one song though, I'm a play a record from start to finish kind of girl. But sometimes I'll put on just one on my iPod, and then it's for Roo because she gets super excited about some of these songs.

    Wow this is so exciting! Great idea for a thread! I can't wait to look up all these new artists

    Music pretty much goes where my blood should be, so I have A LOT of favorites. My pet genre is goth rock, but I love everything from Celtic to metal.

    Apocalyptica – hard rock + cellos. Nuff said.
    Ashes of Eve – I think they've disbanded sadly I only have three of their songs, but they're breathtaking
    the Bastion soundtrack – soundtrack or not, this is some of my favorite music of all time! I don't even know how to describe the style because it's so unlike anything else. The person who made the music calls it "wild west meets trip-hop" so we'll add a dash of Asian fusion and a post-apocalyptic twist and go with that.
    Blackmore's Night – amazing fairytale music with an edge…The Storm, Loreley, and Play Minstrel Play are my top three songs.
    Breaking Benjamin
    Delta Goodrem – Electric Storm
    Ego Likeness – Ultra-spooky and slightly mad. I'm currently addicted to Burn Witch Burn, which sounds awful, but it's actually really kickass – a witch on trial is mocking her accusers and the list of crimes they have against her (learning how to read, refusing to marry, etc.)
    Emilie AutumnJuliet, Shallott, Castle Down, and Opheliac are my faves at the moment
    Evanescence– my first love and favorite band of all time. Currently hooked on My Heart is Broken and Made of Stone (the Renholder mix)
    Falling Up – Searchlights (Indoor Soccer) is their best
    Fallout Boy – I'm digging their new album. The Phoenix and My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark are both seriously epic!
    Florence + the Machine
    Flyleaf – I'm So Sick is probably one of the most kickass songs ever…such an epic growly scream from such a tiny girl!
    The Green Children – a more recent love. Dragons is AMAZING!
    Halestorm – a guilty pleasure
    Imagine Dragons
    Josh Groban – he's just amazing
    La Roux – Bulletproof and Tigerlily
    Lady Gaga - I have this love-hate relationship with Gaga. As we'd say in the South, "Well, ain't you a cute little lollipop triple-dipped in psycho?" But I respect the way she subverts her whole life to the pursuit of her art, and that art permeates everything – music, dance, video/story, fashion…plus her songs are just so damn catchy! Haha.
    Loreena McKennitt – One of my faves growing up…I have like ¾ of her CDs
    Milk, Inc. – love their song Walk on Water
    Moya Brennan – Two Horizons is my favorite album
    Muse – swooooon…who doesn't love Muse?? Currently addicted to Undisclosed Desires, Uprising (I think it's called), and revisiting my mad love for Supermassive Black Hole
    Nickel Creek
    Nickelback – don't judge! I truly love their music.
    Nightwish – second favorite band ever. Amaranth is my all-time favorite of their songs, but I also love Nemo, The Poet and the Pendulum, Wish I Had an Angel (although the Nightcore version of this is somehow even more awesome), Bye Bye Beautiful, Wishmaster….gosh there's so many! I could go on forever.
    Owl City – basically everything. I'm in love with Owl City, the lyrics are incredible and the songs never fail to lift my spirits. This music is the perfect cure for sadness. Current faves are Alligator Sky, Kamikaze, Shy Violet, and Meteor Shower. Also love The Real World ("reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there") and Plant Life ("I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest")….and I'd better stop before I list ALL THE SONGS!!
    PelleK – Northern Wayfarer. Amazing. And I love how he sings a new song every day for his Youtube fans – great guy who can sing his butt off with a ridiculously awesome four-octave range.
    Sarah Brightman – hit or miss for me, but songs like Fleur du Mal make me love her
    Scooter – first techno
    Shiny Toy Guns – Le Disko kicks. butt.
    Sixx A.M. – Life is Beautiful…this song never fails to make me shiver
    Skillet – Rebirthing is their best album, by far. Comatose and Whispers in the Dark are some of the most emotionally powerful songs ever. WitD is so darkly beautiful – "my love is waiting to clothe you in crimson roses." – swoon!
    The Rasmus – In the Shadows is my fave…it's the first Kingdom Hearts intro so naturally I'm biased.
    Thousand Foot Krutch
    Three Doors Down
    TobyMac - If you're a Narnia fan, listen to New World. Full body goosebumps every time!
    Unsun - Whispers is a great song
    Within Temptation – Third favorite band of all time. What Have You Done, Angels, The Howling, Faster, Sinead…I could go on and on.

    And this is only the stuff I can remember off the top of my head, without even looking at all the music on my home computer @_@
    Zion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Tobias Rowan ~ Caspian _____
    Alice Willow ~ Ophelia Wren ~ Juliet Snow ~ Lucia Pearl ~ Eve Wisteria nn Evie ~ Cosima Rose ~ River Seraphine ~ Elowen Briar

    Narnia Rose, Astoria nn Story, Illyria, Serafina, Soraya, Faerydae
    Orion Melchior North, Tobias Loki, Edmund, Frost, Oberon, Kenshin, Remiel, Atreyu

    ...and I forgot about Nine Inch Nails/Trent Reznor, R.E.M. and Dresden Dolls/anything Amanda Palmer's ever done. She rocks!
