The Educate GregMcduck on Music Suggestions Thread
« on: January 20, 2009, 08:09:34 AM »
By my count, I've posted in the music forum... never. The fact is, I don't really know shit about most music with the expections of 60s/70s popular rock, which my dad had playing non-stop. I know just about every Queen, Beatle and Rolling Stone song, but beyond that, I really don't know jack.

So, educate me on music. Anything you guys like, I want to hear. What I want you to do is suggest all of the following:

1) A band
2) An album
3) A song

and every week I'll randomly select one of each to listen to. You're free to nominate as much as you want, from any era or from any genre (again, if you choose a popular oldies band chances are I've heard it, but if you like an oldie band that's a bit obscure, I probably haven't).

Every week I'll post a new report of my thoughts and discuss with you guys what I thought. So, what can you suggest for me?

PS I've already listened to most of Radiohead, so don't nominate that

Band: Boards of Canada
Album: Music Has the Right To Children Late 90's electronic music has the vibe of 70's-80's analog keyboards. When I first bought it there were a few tracks I liked on it, but the whole has now grown on me and is one of my favorites.
Song: roygbiv

Tenacious D. The album is an incredible celebration of every classic rock tradition, trope and cliche. It's magical.

I reccomend They Might Be Giants. Flood is a good album to start with. I like 'em because they don't sound like anything else you've ever heard.

The Replacements.  The albums Tim and Pleased To Meet Me, specifically.

My favorite song ever:

I fully endorse the last two posts.

What I want you to do is suggest all of the following:
    1) A band
    2) An album
    3) A song

1) Porcupine Tree
2) "Afraid of Sunlight", by Marillion
3) "Ommadawn", off the album "Ommadawn", by Mike Oldfield

I can do a few hundred more of these, which should be enough keep you busy and broke!

1.) Uh... The Beatles
2.) Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Blood Sugar Sex Magik"
3.) "Next" by Bela Fleck & the Flecktones

I really don't music either.  This may be my first or second post on the Music board too.  I need recommendations too.
