RE: TTA iPod Compilation
If you like "classic" rock and "stoner" music, you should really check out Ghost. (Recently changed to Ghost B.C., due to copyright issues in the US) Their sound is wonderfully retro, but they're quite new.

The only put-off I can envision is that their lyrics are so highly and unabashedly satanic. They don't take it seriously - it's all for theatrics - but they play it up to the fucking hilt. When I first discovered them, I fell in love with the fact that their lyrics are so satanic that it was funny (especially with the squeaky-clean vocals they use), but what kept me around is the fact that their music is actually very, very good.

You're right about the lyrics being redonkulous, but I agree, it's pretty good music. For me, it was reminiscent of a dialed back metal, without a shredding guitar solo and screeching vocals. (Not that there weren't solos, but they seemed more simply melodic than a guitarist who tries too hard to be technical while showing off his ability to play fast and loud). I give them 1.5 Thumbs up out of ThumbsupThumbsup

To all you fine folk, I will update with a list of what I got and a list of idea of what I think I need.

For now, I need some World music. Not just English, folks. I'll take Engrish, though. Big Grin

How about some Cesaria Evora for a mild, testing-the-waters kinda venture into "world music" (what a meaningless term anyway... to paraphrase (possibly) Louis Armstrong: All music is folk world music.)?







And a faster one, because she has a lot of those, too (I'm just a gloomy broad Rolleyes ):



And another caboverdean artist, who's quite good:




I like all sorts of other "world music": Breton, Galician, Icelandic, other Caboverdean artists, some Angolan ones... But I'm a junkie, there is no hope for me anymore...

Oh, and 'cause you speak French:



This one is actually very appropriate for an atheist site:

The Soldat Louis one? Those guys are really good. And funny. You should definitely check them out.

(I quite like fado, too, but it's on the gloomy side. And the lyrics - in Portuguese - play a great part in why I like it.)

(Still, I'll post a couple of songs, for the heck of it Big Grin)

Cheap...look for Rob Zombie...American Made Music to Strip By (a different take on his stuff)

Rod Steward...hell's bells...that's why happens when I type that much...look for his old stuff...deep cuts, not the stuff that had big radio play.
Having said that...Maggie May is one of my favorite songs.

Okay, one last one and I'm done, seriously. But I do love Breton music (and Denez Prigent) so much Heart













(Love Scots Gaelic, (the language that is) btw, but mainstream Celtic stuff is rather easy to find).
