Anyway, that was a fun project. I listened to a lot of stuff I haven't heard in a long time, much of which is good, and I'm bringing back into my regular playlist, or at least my consciousness, and some of which is bad, and which I will, eventually, get around to deleting from my ipod.
But! This brings me to a fun place: I'm thinking a lot about music! I like music, but I don't really know how to seek out new music without guidance. That's where you all come in. What music do you like that you think I might like? I'm tempted to tell you the sorts of things that I like, but I'm also curious to hear what you'd suggest without any prompting. So, I'm going to put a few things I like behind a cut, which you will see when you click to write a comment, but it may allow you to think of some things without bias before you click, if that strikes you as interesting.
Popular chick music:
Stuff like the soundtracks from
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
The Whale Rider
Nine Inch Nails
EDIT: Oh, yeah, and dance music. I know basically nothing about dance/techno, but there's something about it.
In general, I like music with interesting lyrics and music that makes me catch my breath, but I also like stuff that's more mellow. But, really, I'm pretty wide open to suggestions.
