OK, I lost all my music on a hard drive a while ago and just started to get some of it back downloaded.

I have so far done all

Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, Kate Bush, Pink Floyd, Madonna, Cafe Del Mar,

do you see a trend here for "old music" so come on peeps what do I need in my collection from recent artists, or at least the last 10 years lol

Thanks Sam Orange

Mike Oldfield, Bruce Springsteen did yesterday then watched the Brits last night thinking that would inspire me!

In reply to Sam Mayfield:

I would second the recommendation for The National (start with High Violet).
Also Bon Iver (try For Emma, Forever Ago), Beach House (Bloom), Errors (It's Not Something But It Is Like Whatever), Metronomy (The English Riviera) and the new Foals album is absolutely awesome.

Guys is that the name of a band "mostly wrong" or you dissing my taste in music?

If you want something old (well, 1980) and good, get "Pleasure" by Girls At Our Best.
