What do you listen to? This is a question I often ask people on gmail chat when I'm bored and I want new music. You know, something to dislodge that song I've had stuck in my head for the past... oh, eon or so? Yeees. Anyhow, people being lovely as they are, oblige me, and so now I have a couple less then twenty playlists from Islanders, with tastes ranging across the board. I've got Black Sabbath, I've got Bollywood, Gilbert and Sullivan and Daft Punk and Disney-songs and Miss Saigon and Michael Jackson and Pachelbel Canon in D. I find this to be epically awesome.

So. I ask you all, forum-lurkers: What you listen to? Tell me, send me YouTube links, take a look at pieces of other people's minds on the playlists I've already got. I love music and I want to listen to it all. And who knows,maybe you'll find a new favorite artist, maybe someone shares your taste in music and a new friendship is born, maybe you'll find something to get that godawful pop song out of your head. I think sharing of music can only lead to good things. Here's hoping you'll all agree.

No, Matthew.
You're finding it funny, because it's probably one of the funniest things out there.

Also, you're learning a lesson through it. That if you touch the sun, you will get kickass sunglasses, and guitar!

I listen to Last.fm a lot nowadays. Artist stations - mostly Cake or Telefon Tel Aviv. There's some music here and there in my youtube uploads and favorites... http://www.youtube.com/babehuth

Telefon Tel Aviv really is fantastic. I keep a copy of their live remix of Stolen Moments up on my webhost just to link to people who like third stream and electronic music. http://www.alexhuth.com/music/stolen_moments_airiemix.mp3

I listen to a fair bit of music from independent artists, signed and unsigned, who participate in SongFight! or similar online music communities. There's a lot of utter shite but also a lot of really good stuff if you don't mind low-fidelity recordings.

My CD collection consists of mostly jazz, plus a ton of Zappa and TMBG, with some Pink Floyd and Queen to round out the set. Unfortunately I'm unable to link you to that.

Lions are awesome.

I listen to some different things. Holst (Jupiter is the best), Mike Enfield (Music of the Spheres), Howard Shore (the best), the music for Battle for Wesnoth (it does have some pretty good game music).

No sound and almost no video whatsoever. Used to have it, though.
You can't begin to believe how badly I miss it. 8|

Sometimes I get lucky and can petsit at another house with a comp that has sound and video, so I'm happy enough for that.

Cripes. I tend to listen to one thing repeatedly until it bores me, then move on. Most recently:
Doctor Steel, My Life With The Thrill Kill cult, Gorillaz, Complete History Of The Soviet Union, Arranged To The Melody Of Tetris, The Beatles, and anything by Hideki Naganuma, Max Raabe's covers
Older interests include Cake, Yoko Kanno, Bloodhound Gang, Bound Together, Daft Punk, They Might Be Giants, and Jonathan Coulton. I'm sure there are others, but this url list thing is boring to write. Plus I'm listing duplicates of others', but hey, more selections of their work. Wink

Any artist that is aware of how important fans are to their success and who is aware of internet will have either a myspace page, a youtube channel or their own website, where you can listen their songs for free. Or rather, at least one of those things. I mean, Jill Sobule* is even on TED.
Some bands who get really pissed off with their record labels will even give their albums out for free, like Nine Inch Nails. Even Jill did something similar, if I remember right.
Youtube's just,... Well, it's for us lazy people. If you want to hear more than one band, neither myspace nor a personal webpage are good for that. So you go for something that can give you more artists. Spotify (or despotify, depending on your preferences), Last.fm, grooveshark** ,... will all offer a much better selection of music than youtube, but they don't have the pretty moving pictures which mesmerize all normal humans. Also, with youtube it's a lot easier to share music, which is the point of this thread, if I understand right, along with the special youtube channel. I honestly can't think of a better outlet to share music.


Anyway, a few more songs to add to the list. There will be more to come, I just need to remember what else I like.
Cypress Hill-What's Your Number
Prozac+ - Acida
Tre allegri ragazzi morti - Il mondo prima
Kosheen - Harder
Another Chance Hed Kandi


* Jill would have goone on my list as well, but it was already in the thread, so I left her out. She's a pretty good artist.
** grooveshark could easily be my best pick, if it weren't for a flash GUI

Secondly, I have this Improbable Island playlist I've been editing for a while now, and I thought I'd share the latest pieces.

Because oh my goodness. Mr. Green


Family Force Five

"Zombie"

"Crank it Like a Chainsaw"


Steam Powered Giraffe

"Automatonic Electronic Harmonic"

Lastly, there hasn't been a song dedicated to our illustrious Caveman on my list... until now.


Professor Elemental

"Cup of Brown Joy"
