    I know this is a site about movies and everything related to them, but as we have started to list some of our favourite stuff here on forum, why not share opinion about music and our favourite bands and musicians. Since music is even more important than movies to me, I would like to see what do you think about music.
    My favourite music is alternative rock and trip hop, although I like grunge and hard rock as well.
    My favourite band is Muse and then there are others, such as: Radiohead, Hooverphonic, Jeff Buckley, Hard Fi, Pearl Jam, The Killers, Led Zeppelin, Kyo, Kane, Suede, Nirvana, Garbage, Stereophonics, Dredg and many more. I like female songwriters very much, too, such as Tori Amos, Jewel, Alanis Morissette and Aimee Mann.

    music is a part, sometimes very significant, of movies, so I think the topic is OK:)
    I can't really imagine my day without music, I almost always fall asleep with my radio on;)
    My favourite band is U2, saw them last year in Chorzow, Poland and they were fabulous. I'm really lazy today and it would take too much time to name all my favourite bands, so here's a link, if someone is curious: http://www.lastfm.pl/user/Martuchna8
    What else can I say.. I rarely listen to female vocalists, of course there are exceptions like Sade, Joni Mitchell or Cat Power, but I prefer male voices:D

    Or we can also focus on soundtracks!
    The Road by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis. Heartbreaking.

    I love Trip Hop a lot: bands such as Portishead, Lamb, Red Snapper, Massive Attack, Tricky, Bjork... I followed most of these bands since I was 17 years old or younger and never got bored with them. And, the more depressive they are the better ^^ Probably the music I listen the most
    Sigur Ros (recently discovered, love it), EZ3kiel...
    Radiohead of course, one of the best concert I have ever seen if not the best, 3 hours of total mind blowing music. Clearly one of the best band that ever existed!
    Placebo
    I loooove Dub, electronic dub especially, I like music that makes you fly far in your head and that's the best music for this :) : Hightone (so great!!), Asian Dub Foundation (also one of the best live band EVER), Dub Syndicate, Lee Perry, Mad Professor, Sofa Surfer, Afro Celt sound system
    I like some electro (but not Italo disco so much): Vitalic for example, Vive La fete (not everything but some tunes are really nice), Legowelt, Adult. , Miss kittin... etc
    Bentley Rhythm Ace, Aphex Twin, Daft Punk, Air
    Cat Power, Elysian Field, Noir Desir, Manu Chao, La mano Negra...
    Also love New Wave: The Cure, Joy Division, New order...
    French amazing singer and song writer Mano Solo who just died (sad!!!), Tryo...
    Some French Hip Hop, some Reggae, some rock from the 60's like Jefferson Airplane or the Rolling Stone (only like what they did in the 60's)
    Jan Tiersen
    And I'm a total Tekno lover even if I'm getting a bit old for this ^^ (but one of the music I hate the most is gabber and happy hardcore beurk!!)

    I'm sure I forgot many things :)

    Oh :D I like this topic.

    So far I guess I super match Zythux list :P and a bit of LovelyT's. Aside of all those things, I have Metallica, Epica, Ayreon, Tool (along with the rest of Maynard Keenan projects) and Buckethead on top artists. Hmmm and Our Lady Peace, Default, Primal Fear, Therion, Kane, a bit of brasilian typical music as MPB, as Maria Gadú, Elis Regina, Chico Buarque and Djavan...Lady Gaga :P Killswitch Engage, Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein, a whole lot of female fronted metal bands, metal operas, rocky and alt rock stuff and soundtracks of course =)
    Fave soundtracks: The Piano, by Michael Nyman, Memoirs of a Geisha from John Williams and A Beautiful Mind from James Horner.

    There is only one "music" and that is Lightning Bolt



    Oh and REFUSED, Propagandhi, The Locust, Maybeshewill, Mono, Russian Circles, Explosions in the Sky, This Will Destroy You, Flying Lotus, Free the Robots, Burial, Four Tet, and Boards of Canada.
    And I am going to see Godspeed! You Black Emperor in January.

    According to my Ipod I mostly listen to Air, Amy Winehouse, Arctic Monkeys, The Cure, Editors, Foo Fighters, Franz Ferdinand, Gossip, Jamiroquai, De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig, Kaiser Chiefs, Kate Nash, Kings of Leon, Lily Allen, Macy Gray, The Opposites, R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Scissor Sisters, Snow Patrol, The Ting Tings and U2.
    So pretty diverse I guess...

    A soundtrack I really like is the 'Knocked Up' one, it's called 'Strange Weirdos' by Loudon Wainwright III and Joe Henry. Stumbled upon it by accident and now I love it.

    Oh and by the way @Chrisy I do enjoy some gabber/happy hardcore from time to time, but it's usually when I'm drunk.

    I started to make a big boring list of artists here, but then I grew bored, so if you're interested, you can have a look at my last.fm: http://www.last.fm/user/OhLookBirdies

    That's not actually a representative list yet, I reset my profile a couple of weeks ago, because I was sick of all the shit bands I used to love when I was an angry angsty teenager in the top ten, but it'll give you the general idea, I guess.

    And here is a little serie in hommage of Mano Solo. More for the French I suppose :) Lyrics are essential with Mano Solo so dont even bother if you dont understand :) By far my favorite French artist. He died of aids in January :(
    His album La Marmaille nue is the only album that made me cry, those songs are so poetic and powerful, never an artist touched me that much, although sometimes it is very depressive, it is also so real and full of hope
    I dont know if many French people know him, I mean they are a lot who knows him but he was not all that popular or very mediatic, he sort of stayed in the shadow most of his career

    I could listened to him over and over, and for a long time I have :)
