Help me build my music library

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Angola!, Aug 3, 2008.

    I just re-signed up for iTunes after not having it for 2 months and losing my entire library.

    So, help me build a new one.

    I like a lot of music. From '60s classic rock to some '70s to few '80s to grunge music to rap to Coldplay to the killers and white stripes.

    I really don't know any new music beyond those last two and I only know the killers' old album and white stripes' icky thump.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    this thread may never end.

    ok, homeboy ...

    oasis is a must - "definitely maybe" and "what's the story morning glory" absolutely necessary.

    80s shyte galore.

    oingo boingo.

    (this is just a start)

    Just get Oasis' greatest hits - Stop The Clocks.

    If you like White Stripes, check out the Raconteurs' Consolers of the Lonely and Broken Boy Soldiers. It's Jack White's "side project" and it's awesome.

    You cannot go wrong with The Verve's "Urban Hymns."

    incorrect on oasis. those 2 albums are as good as any band has had to offer in my music-listening lifetime. lots of songs on those not on that best-of.

    Just a side note for Raconteurs fans...

    The other members of the Raconteurs are Brendan Benson, who's a damn good power-poppish singer/songwriter, and the bass player and drummer from the Greenhornes, a really kick-ass garage/power pop/60's style band. I discovered the Greenhornes through the Raconteurs and now I'm a big fan.

    Any Funkadelic albums, but I know these three better than the rest: Maggot Brain, Let's Take It to the Stage, One Nation Under a Groove.

    The new Nas, Illmatic, Stillmatic. Metallica's And Justice For All. Cee-Lo's two solo albums. Every Eric B. and Rakim album.
