I need to grow my iTunes trove. Song recommendations?

A wide range of musical styles is appreciated, with the exception of country. No offense.

Jul 7th 2006

Well, right now I'm really into Emm Gryner, she's sorta indi-rock-pop-ish, if that makes any sense, and Kellie Pickler from American Idol. I think she has the prettyest voice ever! and also, Mariah Carey.

Jul 7th 2006

Right now I am really into Wilco - everything, but especially "Heavy Metal Drummer" (the version from Kicking Television). And Snow Patrol (especially "Chasing Cars" and "Chocolate"). I love both of them. I get really into a group for a few weeks and then burn out on it...but while I'm into a CD I'm really into it. Then I move on to something else that's probably not new, but is a new discovery for me :-)

Jul 7th 2006

I've gotten a couple of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah songs off iTunes (Yellow Country Teeth and Over and Over Again). Really interesting sound...

The new Belle and Sebastian album "The Life Pursuit" is probably my favorite album of theirs. Definitely worth checking out.

Jul 7th 2006

I'm currently into this French artist, Pauline Croze. I really like the song "Mise a Nu".

Right now I'm very much enjoying the new Dixie Chicks CD-Taking the Long Way. I got it the day it came out (May 23) and have listened to it countless times since!

Well, I just spent an hour or so checking out recommendations, and I want to thank those who shared. I'm buying new tunes and compiling a playlist that I must name appropriately...NA Mix or something.

James: I'm liking your suggestions (loving some); awaiting V.2.

Jul 11th 2006 edited

Just an FYI to anyone else looking for music recommendations, there are a couple threads floating around with great suggestions: Till Death Do Us Rock : Songs that could be in The Office and Shooting the breeze : Non Office-related chatter. Also, Loaded Teapot went the extra mile and put together an iMix of several of the suggested tunes.

Onwards to Volume Two:

  • Over and Over (The 88, iTMS)
  • Ambulance Ltd (Ambulance Ltd, iTMS)
  • The Decline of British Sea Power (British Sea Power, iTMS, took a while to grow on me but now one of my favorites)
  • Keep It Like a Secret (Built to Spill, iTMS, Top Ten list material)
  • Electrified (Dressy Bessy, iTMS)
  • On (Imperial Teen, iTMS)
  • Alligator (The National, iTMS)
  • Fox Confessor Brings the Flood (Neko Case, iTMS)
  • Neva Dinova (Neva Dinova, iTMS)
  • Mass Romantic (The New Pornographers, iTMS, pretty much everything these guys put out is gold)
  • Black Sheep Boy (Okkervil River, iTMS, ditto on the "everything they do is awesome")
  • Urgency (The Pale Pacific, iTMS, Death Cab fans will dig it)
  • Palomar III : Revenge of Palomar (Palomar, iTMS)
  • Summer in Abaddon (Pinback, iTMS)
  • Birds Make Good Neighbors (The Rosebuds, iTMS, Boxcar is the highlight)

I will check out the compiled iMix.

Jul 11th 2006

Nice notes on the iMix (LT's work?)

Jul 12th 2006 edited

i love you but i've chosen darkness---link to great song below

According to Plan

p.s.--my first post!

Jul 12th 2006

early with the cue: I like it. Nice vibe. I read your post quickly and thought I was headed for The Darkness; glad I was wrong...

Welcome, by the way.

Jul 12th 2006

I've listened to a couple Weird Al Yankovic songs, and they are hilariously funny. I would recommend "The Night Santa Went Crazy" and "Your Horoscope For Today."

Jul 12th 2006

Weird Al Yankovic went to my college and got his start on our campus station.

Yes, I believe so. She did an awesome job.

Nice suggestion, early with the cue (and welcome). Those guys are from my hometown. If you like ILYBICD, I recommend that you check out Saxon Shore.

Cool, you went to Cal Poly?

Jul 13th 2006

I've gone with a little classical, a little oldies, this past week...The Clash (I have the first album and London Calling, as well as the great singles cd from a few years back).

I'm taking a British History class this summer at college, and on the first day the instructor handed out a packet with, among other things, some Clash lyrics. I realized it had been a while since I listened to Joe Strummer and company, so out came the old CDs.

Also been listening to the iTunes list I made a few weeks back (with a heavy dose of recommendations from the "songs for the Office" thread, btw)

On the subject of The Clash, I would recommend "Should I Stay or Should I Go" and "White Riot."

Yes, Peach Iced Tea...you too?
I miss SLO (as all alumni do) but am just a couple of hours south.

GT, I am a couple of hours south of SLO as well... (Ventura)
