questionslooking for new music. who's your top 10?


BB King The Thrill is Gone
Anything by Al Green
Simon & Garfunkle - Every single song they recorded. Together or separately.

Am currently listening to this - Phil Collins.

Favorite classical - Rachmonioff's Concerto No. 2 in C minor, by Artur Rubentstein.

Way more than 10 favorites....

I love music, it soothes me. And excites me. Youtube is free, why not listen to songs & then think about purchasing them?


My top 10 coincides with a few of yours:

1. Queen
2. Green Day
3. Eminem
4. Nirvana
5. No Doubt
6. R.E.M.
7. Ice Cube
8. Rage Against the Machine
9. The Beatles
10. Fleetwood Mac

Sadly I have no "new bands" for you to peruse. :|


I see a lot of 90s rock there so I would recommend any of the recent FooFighters albums. Listen and see if you like them but The Black Keys are good. I'll probably come up with more later.


@curtisuxor: Yes! Another favorite! Fleetwood Mac - Tusk. The complete album. Sara, a favorite along w/Tusk. So much music; so much pleasure. The Beatles? Of course!!


another newer one but stop me if you don't like these: Mumford and Sons. The album is Sigh No More


The Toadies Try them they were released poorly it is a good find.
