I thought it would be kind of neat to find out what kind of music my fellow giant bombers listen to, so if you could post your top three favorite bands and your top three favorite songs it would be greatly appreciated; or you could just give a singular favorite song, or musician, or album. However much (or little) you feel like participating. I will go the extra mile and put my current favorites as well as my all time favorites.

My current top 3 favorite musicians (bands):

1. Daniel Johnston

2. Built to spill

3. Pavement

My top 3 all time musicians (bands):

1. Bob Dylan

2. Bright Eyes

3. Neutral milk Hotel

Current top 3 songs:

1. Daniel Johnston - story of an artist

2. Built to Spill - twin falls

3. Nico - these days

All time top 3 songs:

1. Bob Dylan - Girl from the north country

2. Neutral Milk Hotel - In the aeroplane over the sea

3. Cat Stevens - If you want to sing out

Musical inconsistency is pretty normal imo (I listen to as much indie, industrial and alternative as metal and punk, for example)

Oh, and your top three bands... you're awesome. Thank you for being awesome.

@mowcrosoft: Daniel Johnston. Weird. Have you ever heard of Jandek? He's another prolific outsider musician who is just as weird as DJ, but in an entirely different way.

FAVORITE MUSICIANS:

1) Kanye West

2) Pink Floyd

3) Daft Punk

(runners-up include Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Fun., and Notorious B.I.G.)

FAVORITE SONGS:

(runners-up include Some Nights, Try A Little Tenderness, Something About Us, and Good Vibrations)

BEST MUSICIANS:

1) The Beatles (sorry, guys, boring, but it's what I was raised on, and nothing else has topped it)

2) Stevie Wonder

3) Queen

(runners-up include Pink Floyd, Kanye West, Led Zeppelin, Ella Fitzgerald, and Aerosmith. Much of this could be in another order.)

My top three musicians have been constant for quite a while now. I suspect that unless I experience some major upheaval in my life, that isn't likely to change:

  • The Who
  • Paul Weller
  • The Black Crowes

It's nigh-on impossible to pick my three favourite songs of all time, but I'll do my best. Love, Reign O'er Me is the only one that there's really no doubt about - that song (and the whole Quadrophenia album, really) changed my life. Here's my attempt to pick another two songs to sit beside it:

  • Love, Reign O'er Me (The Who)
  • Girl from a Pawnshop (The Black Crowes)
  • Dazed & Confused (Led Zeppelin)

And for good measure, here's three songs that I've been listening to a lot lately:

  • The Devil Takes Care of His Own (Band of Skulls)
  • The Only Moment We Were Alone (Explosions in the Sky)
  • Twist of Cain (Danzig)

Favorite bands is tricky for me, as there are very few bands I feel keep the same level of quality over multiple albums.

1. Built to Spill

2. LCD Soundsystem

3. Pavement

Favorite songs are a bit easier:

1. All My Friends - LCD Soundsystem

2. Carry the Zero - Built to Spill

3. Baba O'Riley - The Who

The first three that popped into my head when I asked myself this question were:

Machine Head

Nine Inch Nails

Marilyn Manson (Holy Wood and earlier stuff).

To really and truly answer this question is something I don't want to spend time on.

As for the top three songs:

Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb.

Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence.

Machine Head - Halo.
