Thanks.

Yeah, I would recommend more folks to revisit Slowdive, The Chameleons, Sigur Ros, and, of course, the Pet Shop Boys...


No thanks, PSB are exactly the kind of 80's pop I can't stand any more.  :P

I will post a few new lists, each one with Slowdive in, maybe that will help!  :lol:
Can't you see I try? Swimming the same deep water as you is hard...

Obviously, PSB don't fit with my other recommendations. I was getting greedy.
:roll:

This is a new list, with some of my all-time faves:
The Damned, TV Smith, Ramones, Buzzcocks, The Stranglers, Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Sound, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Slowdive, Mogwai, R.E.M., Heather Nova, Cranes, Anne Clark, Pj Harvey, Nick Cave, Hugo Race, Chris Eckman, Angelo Badalamenti, Calexico, Sacri Cuori, Mike Scott (Waterboys)...

and many more... my taste ranges from the likes of Mark Knopfler to Guns N'Roses...
or even from jazz to classical...  :roll:

To me it's always great when very young people are introduced to "old" bands  by their families/friends, it's something that I try to do with my little sister as well, but it's clear that we don't have the same taste in music  :lol:

No, she always says "that music is strange, you are the only one who listens to it!"  :D But i think it's quite common for a girl her age, even if when I was 16 I was already into all these bands

Yup, as I mentioned before, it is difficult to make a list... but The Cure and The Damned are bands I've listened to since 1985 and they are always at the top of the list (and always will be, I guess)...
Can't you see I try? Swimming the same deep water as you is hard...
