It's not only Robert's birthday, but also Iggy Pop celebrating his 70th today. Here's one of his most famous songs covered by Siouxsie & Co.!

A cover from Eternal by Slowdive

Strangers passing in the street, by chance two separate glances meet and I am you and what I see is me...

New Mogwai album coming in September. I think I can hear a few Cure influences here on this track:

I've tried several times to 'like' MOgwai and other artists that Robert apparently likes, but never enjoyed them. Will try again.

Currently listening to The Sounds:

Hey, there's no obligation for us fans to like anything Robert does like (and from what I gathered, he likes/liked a whole lot from Jimi Hendrix & Nick Drake up to The Twilight Sad)!
I know "65 Days of Static" were hand-picked by RS to support during the 2008 tour and they're not too far away from Mogwai sound-wise, but whenever I tried, they never "clicked" with me like Mogwai did. So what...

i know , but i still try...
i thought that , i like what Robert (and the rest) do, so maybe i could also enjoy what inspires them. But no luck so far  :P
I must say i am not very open to new groups and music, in fact The Cure are the exception of the rule for me, since i am a very 'pop' guy

Not being open is not good (in my humble opinion). I've listened to all kinds of stuff from rock to classic (including sitting through 4-hour-operas).

"Pop" is not a bad thing - I'm sure you'll find Robert listened to pop songs as well. For example, I remember The Cure had the singer from Republica (Saffron) doing guest vocals on "Just Say Yes".
Also I found this:

On Your Web site, you cite En Vogue as a band you like. Can you honestly tell me when you last broke out the Funky Divas album?
A few years ago, my CD collection had grown to such insane proportions that I gave away about ninety percent of them. The ones that were left I listed on our Web site. I kept the En Vogue album because I really liked it. Some of it sounded like Janet Jackson – I like some of her stuff. But I wouldn't say I'm a fan. It's partly tongue-in-cheek.

What else did you listen to as a kid?
When punk came along, I found my generation's music. I grew up listening to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd, 'cause that was what got played in the house. But when I first saw the Stranglers, I thought, "This is it." And I saw the Buzzcocks the following week, and I thought, "This is definitely it."

"The Velvet Rope" album is excellent. I also listened a lot to "Rhythm Nation 1814" album. But afterwards, it's a matter of taste. Music is above all a feeling. Being open to other styles of music does not make us "bad people". You can be an interpreter of children's songs and be a fan of Marylin Manson !  :)

Well you can, but I would not recommend it!  :lol:
Never liked Manson (and that includes Charles M. too), then I hear things like he left stage after 20 mins at a headlining show.  :smth011

I'd rather listen to:
