If you like Korn and System of a Down, then you might like Thrice - The Artist in the Ambulance. it's a bit "harder" than most of the stuff people listen to, but it's great!!! the lyrics are beautiful... wub.gif *points to his signature*

I suggest that you listen to a sample before buying the CD though -- since not all people like *that* type of rock/punk.



Lyrics

Hmm, just throwing out random band names.. I listen to Ministry.. it's good too. And KMFDM (pretty sure they have CDs on shelves in USA, but not sure about Canada) [for KMFDM, listen to a sample of the song called "Anarchy" to get an idea about what it's all about. their new CD WWIII is awesome!!!].

Bon Jovi is another one of my favourites. Although I like his older CDs better. Dido is very good too. I also listen to a band called Disturbed, and some oldies, Engelbert Humperdink, Frank Sinatra, Paul Anka, Tony Orlando, etc.

Another one of my favourites is REM. and of course, the Beatles. wub.gif Fool's Garden is another good band (early 90s). and the Goo Goo Dolls (Iris, my favourite song by them!!! wub.gif)

Then there's Bloodhound Gang (with their famous song "I Wish I Was Queer So I Could Get Chicks laugh.gif ).. and Alanis Morissette. A-Ha and AC/DC are good ones too.

I listen to a bit of German rap - Xavier Naidoo (good luck finding that one lol, it's next to impossible -- if you know German and want to get it, that is..)

Some of Sting & The Police. and btw, Sum41 = thumbup.gif (I like "Casualty of Society")

And.. Pink Floyd (another one of my favourites!!!!) and Nirvana <---- wub.gif great songs!!! biggrin.gif

Angel jan…

Have you heard Evanescence? I like “My immortal” and “bring me to life” songs from their album…I personally think she has very nice voice and she sings very well (that is of course according to me wink.gif biggrin.gif tongue.gif )….
Anyway just a thought…
Also…have you heard Josh Groban? He has very awesome voice, too….
Oh I also like 3 Doors Down smile.gif smile.gif Anyway you can hear their music’s online and make up your own opinions… smile.gif smile.gif
Good Day!!!

Western art music - a.k.a. Classical music smile.gif

Here are some suggestions for Classical music that's also "popular" with non-musician audiences:

- Rachmaninoff's 2nd Piano Concerto
- Brahms' 1st Piano Concerto
- Chopin Nocturnes
- Beethoven piano sonatas
- Khachaturyan's Spartacus ballet (selections from)
- Mozart's Requiem
- Vivaldi's Seasons

Beethoven's sonatas are great. wub.gif but I find it hard to listen to classical music these days.

Most of the classical music I listen to is on the radio, mixed stuff.. but i like Strauss and Handel.

That's great, Dan. smile.gif Nowadays it's really hard to find people around our age who listen to classical music other then "Fur Elise" on their cell phones.

Good evening

Just received a few Pm’s form our members regarding some of the activity in this trade / I would like to ask all of you to stop pointing fingers and calm dawn our moderators teem will examine this and you all will know the outcome.....
For now except the apologies from each other and – lets stop this kids game
Thoth has apologized - and I don’t see any need to continue the name calling and or any insults to each other. Wan in other case some “popular” members don’t even bother apologizing or even admitting their wrongdoing.
