So this is basically my ultimate list of my fave bands with a few comments...enjoy!
Goo Goo Dolls - IMO, the best band in existence - I was blown away by Live in Buffalo, and everytime I listen their songs get better and better. Simply awesome. Black Balloon, Two Days in February, Name, etc. every single song gets me.
Dire Straits - some brilliant guitar solos here - Tunnel of Love, a classic, & Romeo and Juliet is great too. Fab.
Something Corporate - Konstantine - amazing. I fell in love with this song, still can't get enough.
Dashboard Confessional - Pure & simple - Bend and Break to Hands Down & some of the more raw tracks. As Lovers Go grabbed me first when I heard it on my radio. Obsession carried on from there.
The Calling - I've seen them live & they were even better in the flesh. I love both their more sensitive & upbeat stuff - Wherever You Will Go of course, & Anything from the album "Two." Definitely rate this band.
Feeder - Going to see them in March - really can't wait. Echo Park is def their classic album, but gotta love "just a day" too, and a few off Yesterday Went Too Soon. Their more recent stuff is mellow & soulful. Can't beat it.
James Blunt - what a gem. I heard "Goodbye my Lover" and cried for about 20 mins. No joke.
matchbox twenty - Have two of their albums & love them both - particularly "Hang," "3am" and "Bright Lights." I'm a sucker for the slow ones.
Train - my first official favourite band - I got hooked on Drops of Jupiter & it went from there. Still love them now. "Lincoln Avenue" is a treat.
Jimmy Eat World - "Work." What a song. The intro gets me every time, & then the lyrics...I go for the lyrics.
The Darkness - Saw them at Leeds festival, & I'm goin to their next tour - I can't help loving Justin Hawkins. He's the most hilarious frontman ever - when he got us to sing "I'm hungry, give us some meat." he's a genius.
Aerosmith - "Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" and "Dude looks like a Lady." Love em!
Lifehouse - Brilliant new album - "You and Me" & "All in All." Also liking "Hanging By a Moment" from "No Name Face." They're the kind of band where you can listen to an album and love every song.
Well my fingers are hurting now, so here's the rest in short hand:
3 Doors Down
Funeral for a Friend
