Rush and Porcupine Tree take up about 90% of my listening time.

I also like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Van Halen, Pink Floyd, The Cure, REM, Dire Straits....

Oops. I first read the thread title as "Favorite Musicals" and was going to suggest "Singin' in the Rain" and "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers."

Not quite the same thing, I guess.

Re: Favourite Musical Artists/Bands

The Chieftains, Billy Bragg, Frank Zappa, Philip Glass, Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Doors, Pink Floyd, David Bowie to concentrate on those that have a livelier contemporary presence. Or in a different format, John Williams, Danny Elfman, James Horner, Howard Shore. All pretty standard. For me, the ever increasing indifference to whether the lyrics can be heard has sharply diminished interest and pleasure in pop music.

Re: Favourite Musical Artists/Bands

My favorite classical composer is, without a doubt, Philip Glass. It's only because of him that I own any recordings of operas (Einstein on the Beach, Monsters of Grace). And his soundtrack work is great as well (such as the Qatsi films). The endless repetitive electronic stuff isn't for everyone, but I likes it.

So I guess you're not fond of the Cocteau Twins then?
