Sister Hazel (other favorite is the Beatles)

Why is Sister Hazel cool?
their song "Firefly" is a good reason to start... :-)

Also I love their music--the first time I heard their song "Change your mind" on the radio I cried. I've found many of their songs to relate to my experience, both happy and heartbreaking and everything in between. Also they ditched their big company deal to go back to being an Indie band (how cool is that?). Lots a talent. Great music.

Cheers, Amylisai

REAVERMAN


My favorites are:
1) Disturbed; I think "Overburdened" is an excellent song for the Operative(post-Miranda), while "Down With the Sickness" is the most Reaver-ish song I've ever heard.

2) Seether; "Plastic Man" is a good one for River or Mal. "Diseased" is all River though.

3) System of a Down; "Soldier Side" is a great one for Mal or Zoe.

4) Fear Factory; "New Promise" is fitting for Simon.

5) Nirvana; For sheer, random funnyness, "Lithium" is Wash's song! And "Pennyroyal Tea" is definitely for Jayne.

6) Social Distortion; "I Was Wrong", "Through These Eyes", and "Crown of Thorns" are all good ones for Mal.


You're welcome on my boat. God ain't.

Going to see Disturbed in September (I think) they rescheduled their European tour. They rock!
Scottish people dont actually sound anything like Groundskeeper Willie. Unless of course I dont realise it being born and raised here in which case I'm off to get my tongue cut out in true Reaver style.

CANTONHEROINE


I'd have to say Manic Street Preachers, hands down. The Holy Bible has got to be one of the most intense albums ever made, it's just brutal.

I also love Radiohead, the Beatles, U2 (especially their early stuff, pre-Joshua Tree) and David Bowie.

LittleAlbatross - you need to hunt down and talk to a guy on this site called Jadehand (try talk story) To say he's a bit fan of Marrilion is like saying we all think Firefly is kinda ok.

Huge. Big. Grande fan of Marrillion. From what I've heard they are very cool.

My own favorite band, oh gods, pain! can't... choose... just... one... ...ok. er.... Tori Amos.

Any album whatsoever, just pick up and immerse thyself. She's incredible, every song, even the more outlandish one such as 'Proffesional Widow' is just an incredible ride. Favorites include 'Tear in your Hand' 'Sleeps with Butterflys' 'Putting the Damage On' 'Honey''Space Dog'''Talula' 'Sweet the Sting' General Joy' oh hell, now i'm just listing the songs. I like her.

If you've not heard her stuff and want to, try Little Earthquakes and Scarlets Walk or the latest one, they're the somoothest intros.

Jeeze even her remixes are good.

Others are Kate Bush, NIN, Fleetwood Mac (early stuff, pre stevie-whatsername) Elton John (seventies stuff) Smashing Pumpkins,Killers Kaiser Cheifs, Pearl Jam, Led Zep, the Who, the Monkees, Placebo, Garbage, Damian Rice, Queens of the Stonage, Foo Fighters, Roxy Music, RHCP, Dave Matthews Band, the Eels, Goldfrapp, Maximo Park,Fairport Convention, Nirvana, The divine Comedy, Bjork, Counting Crows, Soundgarden, Sneakerpimps, and so very many more.


People that need a mention, but i've only managed to hear one of two of their songs - The Shins, Frou Frou, Arcade Fire, Sunna, A (did a song called 'nothing' a while ago which I play almost everyday but never heard anything else)Jose Gonzelez (the 'Heartbeats' song from the ad with all the little coloured balls)All American Rejects, Zero7 and Nick Drake.

Funnily the only band in the world that i'm totally ambivilant to (don't hate, but could happily go the rest of my life not missing) is the Beatles. I dunno.

Overall, no one old or earth shattering but 3 doors down. Some of their music was my high school experience, and some pretty cool things happened to me while their tunes blasted over head, so them because fo their talent and sentimental value. But third eye blind saved me a few times "Hows it Gonna Be" became a weapon i used to keep my sister safe from my dad. it made him think about loss so he would stop yelling. sad huh? but such is life. On the up side everything rocks now that i don't see him any more. neither does my sister and so i love both bands because they helped me some in a figurative way, some in actual life-like ways. The universe if funny in that way. But now i have a semi-chamred life. The key hard work!!!! Have fun every one! Sorry short adn choppy sleepy work night have to up in day to pay bills!!!! Hehehe

We have...um...was sheep mentioned?




As for favourite bands, I adore (sorry, there's way more than one) the Smiths, Regina Spektor, PJ Harvey, Kate Bush, Hole, Rilo Kiley, Sufjan Stevens, Tilly and the Wall, Cat Power...yes. Lots of music. My top two are probably the Smiths and Regina Spektor, and then it's a huge orgy-like tie for the third favourite spot.


Mmm, music orgy.

Hey flywithme, Marillion is certainly worth a listen. Just make sure you get some of their later music. I don't at all care for their early stuff, but that's just me. Find JadeHand, he'll be able to recommend their best.

As for me, my favorite band of all time has to be Rush. Thinking person's rock and roll. And Neil Peart is one of the few Percussionists (as opposed to Drummers) working in rock today. Not to mention the lyrics he writes. I've been lucky enough to see them twice, including seeing them perform 2112 in its' entirety!

Next, I'd have to say Genesis, especially with Peter Gabriel. I saw them in late '81. Still one of my favorite concerts ever.

In no particular order, I also regularly listen to:
Status Quo
School of Fish
Eric Johnson
Kate Bush
Tonic
Solas
Joe Satriani
Emerson Lake and Palmer
Metallica
Alan Holdsworth (how does he make those sounds come out of a guitar?!?!?!)
Green Day
U2 (though I prefer them before Zoo)

Now, since we're all friends here, I'll let out a little secret. Even though I pogo'd to the Pistols as a lad, had hair halfway down my back and headbanged in my 20s, and have been brought near to tears by a truly sublime live performance of Haydn by the Toledo Symphony, I....... listen to synthpop.

I blame Gary Numan, who I also still listen to. Then along came Men Without Hats, who I also love. And lately, I've been listening to Freezepop. There's just something about a bouncy, frothy pop song carried by a synthesizer that makes me smile. You won't tell, will you?

nah, as long as you tell no-one about my eighties obsession, I love almost all of it, good and bad, but especially Adam and the Ants Cyndi Lauper, and The Cure, love the Cure, can't believe I left them out the first time.

But the biggest shamefull confession I have, is that I kinda like the Black Eyed Peas.

I know I know, its not like i'd ever buy their albums, not even the first one (remember when they were a protest group?) But with the exception of that humpy one, I listen to their songs when they come on the radio.

That and I prefer the covers of 'How Soon is Now' to the origional Smiths version, which to many I've spoken to is sacrelige(sp?) but hey, I can't stand theat Morrisey guy (is that the right one?) his voice just makes me want to thump him. Really hard.

I always stop surfing for an Aerosmith song. Even when I was 8. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers came to me with Don't come around here no more, but I couldn't stay away. And Jewel, always so heartwrenching and breathy. Yes i said breathy. Not breasty. These are my all time favorites. Aiming for the top spot: Horrorpops.
Patricia Day=Evil Gwen Stefani on crack. Total Rockabilly Psycho B**ch Outta Hell. I love you and your stand up bass, so don't break it.

they aren't Firefly related but they are Joss-verse related. The lead singer is Christian Kane who played Lindsey McDonald on Angel. Not your typical country and very good music. Check out their Myspace page for sample songs: http://www.myspace.com/kanecountry
