Quote from: Jay Tee Em
a friend of mine tried to get me into Bjork, but the song she had me listen to sounded like a cat being tortured.

i'm still open to the idea of getting into her music, just tell me where i should start.

In order...

1. Human Behavior (Debut)
2. Army of Me (Post)
3. Alarm Call (Homogenic)
4. Hunter (Homogenic)
5. Scatterheart (Selmasongs)
6. Who Is It (Medulla)
7. Jóga (Homogenic)
8. Hidden Place (Vespertine)
9. Bachelorette (Homogenic)
10. Pagan Poetry (Vespertine)

These are some of her more grounded songs... Hopefully after these you'll get into songs like Immature, Undo, Where Is The Line, and some of the other Vespertine stuff, which can be quite flightly.

Set down whatever you're doing and listen to Nellie McKay (not to be confused with Bonnie McKay, who's good jailbait, but weak music).  This girl is the single most wildly talented, original songwriter to come up the pike in years.  If you're looking for a taste test, first hear "David", "Ding Dong", and "Inner Peace".  She's probably not for everyone (genre-hopping confuses the riff-raff), but the rest of us will be blown away.

Melissa Auf Der Maur's solo album is pretty cool, too.  Weird lyrics and not the strongest singing voice, but it's better than anything Hole or late-era Smashing Pumpkins ever did.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

not favorite, but listen to the song "Skywriters".  it starts playing automatically when you go to the website.

http://www.nicoleatkins.com/

i saw her a few weeks ago after my cousins band played a show and she was AWESOME.  voice a little like fiona apple, in a breathy old-ish big band style, with some 60's girl group harmonies and a little country.  she's awesome.  i need to buy her cd, cause i've listened to the three songs on her website like 100 times now.

Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.
