Is there any other band you like to listen to when you're just not in a Beatley mood?(Doesn't really happen a lot.)

I must admit.... in my heart, The Lovin' Spoonful and The Beach Boys are up there in the same place. Don't judge me, please.

I have such a soft spot for all three though.

Note by Ahhh Girl 21 July 2014: Annadog40 pointed out that we had two thread on this topic. I combined them. The second thread began with post 233. There is a little bit of mixing of the two threads on pages 17 and 18, but not enough to cause distress.

I think it's Led Zeppelin or David Bowie for me. Well' David Bowie isn't a band, but you get the point. I am usually left in awe when I'm listening to them just like with the Beatles.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

I listen to a lot of bands, but being a fan? Only U2, Caifanes, Mecano, Tears for Fears and Massive Attack. Roxette also comes to my mind, but I don't have their albums, just their singles. I also like Julian Lennon's last 2 albums a lot.Sadly, my music diet is only Beatles. I sometimes feel malnourished, I mean like when you eat caviar all the time???

Roxette was one of the first bands I ever liked without knowing who they were. "The Look" is one of my favorite songs ever and I especially loved it when I was like 3. It wasn't until the past 4 years did I finlly figure out who sang that song. I also love their song "Joyride". They are a real fun band.

If you like Roxette then you should get their album Don't bore us, get to the chorus! with all their greatest hits. I play it very often in class and my students love it!

Radiohead

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

That's a tough one and like everything else it changes all the time. Having said that I probably listen to the Rolling Stones more than anyone else bar The Beatles.

My top 3 non-Beatle bands are The Allman Brothers Band, The Band and CSN(Y).

Bowie, Costello, Presley and Sinatra are in the team photo.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Yes, with additional sometimes member (and awesome dude) Neil Young. I haven't heard much CSN (mostly the CSNY Deja Vu album) but it should be great.

Led Zep, MX-80 Sound, Captain Beefheart, Velvet Underground, P-Funk, and John Coltrane's various quartets/quintets are my top-tier favourites.

Then comes The Byrds and Blue Oyster Cult and Miles Davis and Bob Dylan and etc...

I love love love CSN(Y). If you have not watched their performance of Suite Judy Blue Eyes from Woodstock, I would highly highly reccomend to anyone who likes things that are amazing.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....zF_MoXOU1E

 

My other favorite bands...

 

Nirvana- they were my Beatles before I really knew about The Beatles.  but Nirvana and Kurt still hold a very dear place in my heart.

Alice in Chains

Beach Boys

CSN(Y)

Simon and Garfunkel- I was supposed to see them in a small string of concerts they were putting on in the midwest USA last year, but Art cancelled it because he has some throat troubles or something.a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Zeppelin

Elton John

Green Day (mostly their stuff from 1039-Warning)
