Wow! That's the first time I think I've ever seen The GoGo's, Joy Division, Siouxie and Dire Straits all together in the one list! Wonder what it would sound like if we could get them all to jam together . . .

You should continue with your list of left outs, because that list, so far, is looking far better than the ones who made the cut.

Mindy, didn't you post a message like two weeks ago saying you heard Belle & Sebastian for the first time? And that quickly they make your Top 10? Or do I have you confused with somebody else?

Re: in no special order

i was grasping at straws. there are only so many bands that i like and that i have enough albums of to form a fair opinion (i have three b&s ones). mind you, it took the smiths about 30 seconds to become my favorite band. in any case, my list changes daily. if i were to make the list today, i'd probably take off r.e.m. and add the beatles or something.

I don't listen to anything else, truly., but I do like...

Gen is the only other band I do listen to on a regular basis. I love his writing and how he uses his gorgeous voice. They are even better live, I think, than on any cd.

I also like Suede, Pulp, and Belle & Sebastian. I listen to them once in a great while. And I can listen to and enjoy Tom Waits, Ani Difranco, The Cure, REM, U2, The Sheila Divine, and Counting Crows, but I would never put on a cd and listen to them myself. I see no point in listening to anything I don't love, no matter how "good" it is by musician standards or ability. I can listen to the radio while I am working or driving because I am not concentrating on it, it's all just background noise. When i really want to concentrate on music, it's only Moz (more so than The Smiths) or Gene that will do.
Call me narrowminded, it's my truth.
