    I have a problem.
    Most of my 'favourite' bands have produced IMO some brilliant songs mixed with quite a few rubbish ones ie Captain Beefheart ,Frank Zappa,Chemical brothers,Isley brothers,David Bowie,Led Zeppelin etc etc

    I agree 100% Anything except rap and death metal.

    If I had to pick a favorite band: Grateful Dead. Musician: Jerry Garcia. There was so much more to Jerry Garcia than the GD. Too bad not too many people know his other work.

    Bon Iver
    Fleet Foxes
    Elliott Smith

    and I have been listening to the new Between the Buried and Me EP for the past week now as well.

    My favorite band is still ABBA from Sweden.
    They went into the rock and roll hall of fame last year.

    Some ABBA songs are beautiful, but many are trash , "Waterloo" top of my trash list.
    Their best songs were those belonging to the period they were breaking up.

    I have favourites, no just one. In other words there are many singers, and bands who I enjoy and listen daily in my i-pod. I listen to songs in English and also in Spanish . One of my favourites Spanish bands is Amaral.

    Today I downloaded this song:

    "For The Sun"

    by Amanda Jenssen

    "It's been four years since I saw the ocean
    It's been five nights since I held your hand
    It's been forever since we talked the whole night through
    It's been too long, I need to comprehend

    So tell my love
    I am leaving
    I gotta find something to believe in
    Tell my love
    I am leaving
    For the sun
    For the sun
    A new day has begun ... "



    Amanda Jenssen - For The Sun - YouTube

    When the combination of music, lyrics and singer is right, the whole is then greater than the sum of its parts and such is the case above. I love her voice and the lyrics express my feelings better than I ever could.

    Before I forget: just like the members of the ABBA group, Amanda Jessen is also a native of the land of IKEA and VOLVO
