Topic: Post Your Music Collection

I was looking through the board earlier, and I didn't see a topic like this one, so I figured I might as well post one.

So what does everybody here listen to in addition to Polysics?  Myself, I tend to like a lot of older rock (mostly), but I'll listen to just about anything I consider good.  I have a bit of an eclectic collection...

A fairly comprehensive list from my iTunes, including only performers / bands I have 3 or more songs from:

Andreas Waldetoft (classical; composes music for Paradox Interactive games)
Apollo (Nashville-area blues group that a college friend of mine plays in)
Badfinger
Bay City Rollers
The Beach Boys
The Beatles
The Bee Gees
Billie Davis (British '60s "Northern Soul" idol singer; never really popular, but I like some of her stuff)
Blue Oyster Cult (not a big metal fan, but I make an exception for them)
Bob Dylan
Bob Marley
Brave Saint Saturn ("space rock" band from the guy behind Five Iron Frenzy)
Buddy Holly
Cat Stevens
Chicago
The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem (Irish traditional folk)
Coldplay (yeah...)
Dave Clark Five
Dean Martin
Devo
Donovan
The Doors
East (early '70s Japanese psychedelic band; only ever released one album)
Electric Light Orchestra
Emanuel Ax (classical)
Eric Clapton
The Format
Fountains of Wayne
The Four Tops (50s-70s soul)
Frank Sinatra
George Harrison
Gordon Lightfoot (Canadian folk / country singer)
The Grass Roots (60s pop)
The Guess Who
Happy End (early 70s Japanese rock / folk group; one of their members later went on to join YMO, and their album Kazemachi Roman was ranked the #1 album of all time by Rolling Stone Japan)
The Hollies
Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (Tchaikovsky)
Jack Johnson
Jim Croce
Jimi Hendrix
John Lennon
John Mayer
Johnny Cash
Joslin Grove Choral Society
The Kinks
L. E. O. (ELO pastiche created by the guy from Jellyfish)
Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra (Tchaikovsky)
The Lovin' Spoonful
Manfred Mann
Mark Baynes (does Celtic-themed gospel music)
The Monkees
The Move (their 3 core members would later found ELO)
Needtobreathe
Owl City
P-Model
Paul McCartney / Wings
Paul Simon
Pink Floyd
Pinkerton's Associated Colours (later became known as The Flying Machine; never really made it big; 60s pop-rock stuff)
The Police
Polysics (of course! big_smile )
Queen
Righteous Brothers
Ringo Starr
The Rolling Stones
Roy Orbison
The Rutles (Beatles parody)
Sadistic Mika Band (70s Japanese rock group; did get one album (Black Ship released in the UK and also appeared on the Old Grey Whistle Test)
Seatbelts / Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop soundtrack)
Shonen Knife
Simon and Garfunkel
Sixpence None the Richer
Sparks (70s pop-rock group; listed on Wikipedia as a Polysics influence, though I don't know how true that is.  Sounds like it would be, though)
Steve Miller Band
Stevie Wonder
Strawberry Alarm Clock
The Temptations
They Might Be Giants (90s alternative band that... does stuff.  Don't know how else to describe it)
Three Dog Night (60s psychedelic rock)
Tommy James and the Shondells (60s pop-rock / psych. rock; famous for "Crimson and Clover" and "Mony Mony")
Tommy Roe (60s pop)
The Traveling Wilburys (the most epic supergroup ever.  Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne (ELO), Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty all came together to record an album.  They did a second one, but Roy died before it could be finished sad )
The Troggs
The Turtles
"Weird Al" Yankovic
The Who
The (Young) Rascals (60s pop-rock)

Also got a few compilation discs of "one-hit wonders" (again mostly from the 1960s), as well as a couple of singletons where I just bought one song off of iTunes / Amazon b/c I liked the way it sounded.

So what about everyone else?

Semper felicitas.
