    My music phases go something like this: Classic Rock ----> classic punk (iggy pop, mc5, television, etc) -----> punk / hardcore / ska / reggae -----> metal -----> and then a bunch of random stuff after that. I started to realize there was a lot more good music outside of my musical knowledge, and basically started searching for as much music as I could.
    HOLY CRAP....not only is it the Catch 22 singer, it's the GOOD one Tom right?

    Awesome dude. Thanks. Love that guy's voice. My friend and I saw them in Albany when we were in college and showed up early to mee the band. Only met the singer, but he was way cool and took requests from my buddy. Great show too.

    Good stuff man...gonna pass it on to my friend (guarantee he's heard them, loves them and will say "of course I know them" )

    Just listened to "Would you be impressed?" - SM Very very cool. Reliving my Catch 22 college days

    So as long as we're going band-for-band.....what do you think of Gogol Bordello?

    lol - go ahead.

    Actually, I just felt left out of the conversation. I had to interject momentarily.

    I like a lot of stuff ...

    I'm kind of the indie alt-proggy (hyper-literate, thank you Stephen Colbert) pop-rock girl, I guess. I will always love the Decemberists, although I find that their earlier albums were a lot more beautiful than their newer stuff. It's still good, however. Other indies like the Slats, Bishop Allen, Kleenex Girl Wonder, Wild Sweet Orange, Tortoise

    Love the garage-noise of the Thermals. Love the low-fi, and artsy, Iron & Wine. Neil Halstead's ability to craft a song. Yo La Tengo's ability to do pretty much anything (long time fan).

    Loved the 90s grunge days -- picked up that new Nirvana live recording (Live at Reading). Cranberries in the 90s. Also used to listen to a little rap/hip hop, but not so much now.

    I've got a soft spot for the Zombies, Hard Fi, Oasis and naturally, the Beatles.

    I like female vocalists, so you can throw in Regina Spektor and Fiona Apple.

    I also really dig electronica. Typically heavy hitting bass lines that you get with breaks and jungle; but I can always listen to some house and tech-house.

    Tchaikovsky is my favorite composer (Russian, imagine that).

    Country music ... well, it depends on the country music. Nothing off the top of my head.

    Oh, and sadly enough (although admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery), I've been absolutely addicted to Lady GaGa lately.

    ... don't shun me.

    It's just that addictive over-sexed radio dance-pop. Imagine if Madonna was just starting out.

    I'll give the girl one thing; she holds all creative control. Music (her own), theatrics and choreography (her own), themes, sets, etc ... As far as radio pop music goes, it's definitely not bubble gum cookie cutter.

    But, just simply saying that you enjoy the music from somebody named "Lady GaGa" leaves much to be desired.

    Oh awesome. I heard The Decemberists for the first time a few years ago at the Coachella music fesitval. they were SO DAMN GOOD. Put on a hell of a live show. I fell in love with them on the spot. Crane Wife is such a great album and of course the Mariner's Revenge is BRILLIANT. I love his style of song writing. You can tell he's got an English major background....very creative.

    Iron & Wine is great as well. My g/f loves them (and pretty much every band you mentioned )

    The Beatles go without saying. If anyone gets the chance they HAVE to check out teh Fab Faux. A group consisting of the bassist from the Letterman band and the guitarist from Conan's old band. They cover every Beatles song to precision. They don't get all goofy and dress like Sgt. Peppers or try and match Lennon's accent or anything like that. They just have every note of every song down perfectly. (Check out I am the Walrus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lknCpGbsJc )

    Funny thing is, I don't like Lady Gaga (don't particularly dislike either...just neutral), but I love the P.S. 22 kids version of "Just Dance": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0FPZolbYns

    If you haven't seen those kids before, check out the rest of the stuff too. their teacher does a brilliant job of getting their kids passionately into the songs they sing. They do a great job and he deserves a ton of credit.

    Don't forget to rate and comment....it increases their youtube popularity, which gets them more appearances (they were on good morning america and the Bonnie Hunt Show), which gets them more funding for programs like this.

    If you like his stuff (and if you haven't already) you'll have to check out Tarkio -- Colin's old Montana band. (Omnibus)

    Maybe I am your girlfriend.

    Yeah, probably not.

    Well, I have to say that I'm a little embarrassed to be enjoying it. Especially after my six year old daughter came home after borrowing a friends CD from school (I had never heard it before) and I lectured her about it. TOTALLY not for a six year old's ears. And TOTALLY out of the realm of what I normally listen to.

    Colin Meloy singing about suicide, murder, rape, and prostitutes seems so much better than Lady GaGa singing about "bluffin' with my muffin." Double standard? Yeah, probably. But, still ...

    Watched and rated. Good stuff.

    Oh fiddlesticks!

    Russian composers trump German composers every day of the week ... except maybe on holidays. I'll give you the second day of every third month, too.

    Compromise FTW!

    Cool. I'll definitely have to check that out when I get home tonight.
