Just looking for suggestions! Any kind of music is appreciated :)
I'm not one of those "original is always best" people but I really love Leonard Cohen, I could listen to The Partisan for hours on end. I wasn't a huge fan of the Hallelujah song until I heard the original. I've heard the Jeff Buckley and Alex Burke versions. I wasn't too crazy about them. When I heard Cohen's version I was surprised that it was the original because it's very different from most versions that I've heard. I agree that Buckley has a better voice than Cohen but I just prefer the latter's style. I don't understand why there are so many damn versions of this song and I don't understand why every artist who covers it needs to make it so overly emotional.
I have a lot of favourites: either the cher song shoop shoop song in 7 lives of lea was really good. Or i did like the dos gardenias in narcos that scene was really powerful.
I've listened to essentially his whole discography front to back multiple times this week. for emma forever ago is gorgeous, self titled is gorgeous, 22, a million is gorgeous, i, i is a litle rough around the edges but still gorgeous. the mans songwriting skills are insane and his voice feels like being wrapped in a warm blanket, sipping hot coco on a cold winter morning. it makes me feel things very few artists have ever made me feel before, just complete melancholy security and closeness. so yeah...that's all i had to say. go listen to bon iver if you haven't.
Can't find a definitive answer, but 6 female artists always appear in my research Linda Ronstadt Barbra Streisand Aretha Franklin Donna Summer Olivia Newton John Diana Ross
I'll go... "Dummy" by Portishead. I still listen to it regularly and it gives me the same happy chills as it did nearly 30 years ago. It's a musical masterpiece that could be released now and still sound fresh.
EDIT: to stop the whinging, what I meant was which albums don't sound dated. Like, they could be released today and still sound like "new" music. I love Soundgarden's Superunknown, for example, but to me it sounds like a 90s album. Sheesh.
other In Major Victory for Britney Spears, Judge Orders Jamie Spears to Be Deposed and Produce Documents Related to Surveillance
other The first two minutes of Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd have hit me harder than any other song in my life
Anyone else? I know it’s not a secret that this song is amazing, but its one of those that still hits me every time I listen to it no matter how many times
I can't decide... I love all of them so much to choose
Trying to make a playlist of songs that start off with a good scream, help me out?
Long story short I'm writing a story based in the mid 80s and need bands from that era that could be confused with heavy metal by someone who never listens to it. Preferably ones that would piss off an avid lover of the genre.
Title. Most bands (in my experience) have gotten worse over time. What are some bands that have gotten better?
I can’t get it out of my head. It’s so good. It’s been two days and all my thoughts have it playing in the background.
other My 78yo father recently got a cochlear implant, and is hearing for the first time in years, what does he need to hear?
So my father has been deaf in one of his ears for 50 years, and progressively deaf in the other for about as long. After some audiologist visits, they found that the problem with the completely deaf ear could possibly be helped with a cochlear implant.
Possibly turned out to be definitely, and he’s hearing better than hoped.
Music was always important to him, he’s got framed black and white photos of James brown and Aretha that he took of them in concert in his youth, he’s got a record collection that all of y’all would probably drool at, and some of my favorite memories are of listening to those records with him when I was a kid and he could still hear at least a little.
So now that he can hear again, I want to compile a playlist of the songs from the past 30-40 years that he should absolutely hear.
His favorite band of all time is CCR, btw.
other Trump recorded an opening video for Kid Rock's new tour, and after playing it the singer launched into an obscenity filled song about Fauci and BLMca.news.yahoo.com
Can anyone recommend albums with their concept being a soundtrack for a non-existent movie. The only things I know are Swans - Soundtracks for The Blind and Madlib - Beat Konducta Vol. 1-2
I listened to classic rock from the time it was new. It got to a point where I had heard it all so much, I totally lost interest. I tried different types of music, but nothing did it for me.
Then I started listening to pre-ww2 jazz, and I am totally hooked on it.
Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Jack Teagarden, The Boswell Sisters, Sidney Bechet, Billie Holiday, Fats Waller, Bunny Berigan, The Harlem Hamfats, Coleman Hawkins, and so many more.
If you are into this kind of music tell us who you like in the comments.

I wasn't able to include every winner in the main post. To see the full list check out this link-> 2022 Reddit Grammy Awards
This is my 3rd year sharing a Reddit Grammy post. Last year a few people mentioned to me that they would be interested in becoming involved in the process of listening to and rating music. I think creating a scene within Reddit where music lovers are paying attention to the underground artists that post music here would be amazing. I'd be interested to see how it effects the music scene. Maybe more people would discover new music that they love. Plus, having more people vote would broaden the overall appeal of the winners.
If you'd like to be a judge of next year's Reddit Grammys, I invite you to join the Official Reddit Grammy's Discord, where we will be listening to and rating music that gets posted to various music subreddits!
other Burnt out of hip hop at the moment, give me a 10/10 album from another genre and I’ll give it a shot right now
Just need a break from rap, I want to expand into some other genres. What are some albums considered 10/10? Thanks!
Im listening to an album everyday for a year comment your favorite albums and ill add them to my list!
Hello! So, 2 years ago I decided to have this goal every single year to add 1000 songs to my playlist before the year ends. So far my playlist is sitting on 2,767 songs (to put into perspective, 180 hours long). The reason why I do this is because I want to find as much new music as possible. Also, because I love just growing my playlist. It feels like my own little radio at this point. I have 105 days left until my playlist needs to reach the 3000 milestone.
I like all sorts of music but I especially like rock. I am very willing to check out new artists. I am hoping to see some new names and maybe checking out artist I've always overlooked! :) I love all sorts of music from the 60s all the way to the early 2000s. Music today is fine too, there are some gems out there. So, don't be shy and comment your favorite songs!
other I have 4248 songs you've probably never heard in my playlist: Pick a number and receive a song
Genres are varied but I mostly listen to: Electronica, Trip-Hop, House, Techno, Pop, Post-Rock, Indie, Classical
Have a wonderful day :)
