I'm having a bit of Pink Floyd phase at the moment.. Has anyone else seen the film The Wall? It's fantastic, I recommend it entirely!

But other than that, I like Blur, The Who, The Doors, Pixies, Radiohead, Coldplay (what do people think of the new songs?)… and yeah. Stuff like that. brian-epstein

Well, I also love Pink Floyd. :)
I think they are just brilliant, and I have been wanting to watch the wall for a while. :I I should!
Led Zeppelin and the Doors are great too. :)

Oh, the Wall really is excellent – you should definitely watch it! I thought it was going to be hard to follow, seeing as it has pretty much no dialogue, but I really loved it..

What's your favourite Pink Floyd album?

Yeah, Led Zeppelin is pretty much the one band from that era that I don't know very well. I should, really, because everyone tells me that they're really good, but I've just never really got around to listening to them…

It's good to know I'm not alone on The Monkees.

I also like The Posies, Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones, (not really a band) Lady Gaga, Herman's Hermits, Fats Domino, The Four Seasons, The Hollies, and alot of other stuff.

My music is all over the place.

I like all those bands too! New Coldplay songs… well to be honest, I only gave each one of them one listen. Which is strange because they were my favourite band 2 years ago. I guess I'm kind of waiting for the album to drop so I can get the full effect. What did you think?

I think my top 5 right now is: 1. Beatles  2. Rolling Stones  3. Coldplay  4. Jack Johnson  5. Radiohead/Chuck Berry/David Guetta. Just momentarily (though the top 2 never really move, except for interchanging each other now and again)
