The concept of "favorite artist" just doesn't work for me.

I listened to Mission of Burma and The Moles while working on my taxes this afternoon, if that helps.

All of them since I handpicked virtually every song on the thing. No wasted space on my iPod. :D

Neil Young - Harvest. It seems to be my go-to when I can't work out what I want to listen to.

Other than that, I seem to listen to quite a lot of Gomez, and Vaughan Williams when I'm in a classical mood. As others have said, it's the diversity of music on the thing that appeals most though.

Pearl Jam, Jamiroquai, and James Brown. I like th classic rock too (Beatles, Stones etc). To be honest though I usually end up listing to podcast mostly nothing makes you pound the pedals hard than listening to politics. :crap:

Me too...love To Tulsa and Back plus a lot of his other stuff. Also listen a lot to of Alison Kraus and Grateful Dead. Have my whole cd collection on the ipod but they are the ones that mainly get listened to.

Coincidence - their "Please read the letter" song was just playing on the radio when I checked this. Have tickets to see them at Red Rocks this summer.

Today it's the B-52's.

Back in October it was Randy Travis

Last month it was Nelly.

Akon and Fergie before that.

Next week it could very well be Paul Simon or Moroon 5.

I'm leaving for a walk right now and will start with some John Mayer and Bobby Brown

Kewl. Have you heard Davies co-op project with Eric Matthews called Cardinal? Sublime stuff.I never picked that up. I got "There's Never Been a Crowd Like This" and still can't decide whether it's genius or trash. One of the most unusual records I've ever heard... I guess that makes it genius, huh?

I concur. Old 97s are fantastic. Saw 'em at First Ave in Mpls and the Fillmore in San Fran.

Also in heavy pod rotation:

Ryan Adams (NOT the 'Cuts like a knife guy'. He's a bit of a a head case, but is very talented)

Fountains of Wayne (long live pop!)

Yeah, I picked up that Davies record as well after I had heard Cardinal and was a little underwhelmed. A little to "plonky" for my tastes. There are those moments on the Cardinal record, but the gems like "Dream Figure" make the record worth it. Eric Matthews' debut solo record is really good too. Here's a vid for Eric's "Fanfare".

And here's a link to some clips for Cardinal. I didn't know they reissued it with 11 bonus tracks!

Anything Ryan Adams, Sonvolt/Jay Farrar, Richard Buckner, Flogging Molly or Wilco. All the rest are just pack fodder.

U2 live from the I tunes collection, which is almost 40 hours of U2.
I don't know how I never get tired of them- I am on my third year with this collection.
