[Official] The Damn Good Music List
I will seriously listen to everything on this fucking list – i’ve been waiting for a HE music list, and it seems to have been here for a while! haha
I really love Steely Dan and Donald Fagen solo, The police, Tool, Borgore, Pink Floyd, Stevie Wonder, Bar 9, Datsik, Rusko, Jakwob, Otis redding, Nina Simone, Sammy Davis jr.
trust me it goes on way longer than i can write down within an hour. Anyways… I have music as one of my majors so it goes without saying that music is important to me.
One of the most beautiful songs I have heard lately is a remix of the theme song from Inception. Here’s a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se5NBKNcsy4
One of my favorite songs is Over the Hills and Far Away, by Led Zeppelin.
The whole Inception soundtrack is awesome.
All of the songs ever done by People Under the Stairs. They’re a hip hop group, but not anything like the bullshit on the radio, they actually make good music. Anyone who likes music and wants to listen to some real hip hop, check them out:
Oh, and I bet alot of the people on here would enjoy Mark Farina’s “Mushroom Jazz” series. He mixes trippy/jazzy/hip-hopesque beats and some songs with vocals into hour-long seamless music mixes. A couple songs in the mushroom jazz mixes:
I <3 music alot.

^^ Matt, have you heard of The Sea and Cake, or Dinosaur Jr.? Judging by some of the artists you posted (Animal Collective, Arcade Fire, Phoenix, Sufjan Stevens) you’d probably like them. You’ve also got a little hip hop in there, so def check out People Under the Stairs.
Wounded by Third Eye Blind. The song tells a story.
Tight thanks Ben i will check them out. I am listening to People Under the Stairs right now, sick. I will have to download em
Since I love Carl Sagan, I love the Symphony of Science: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSgiXGELjbc

Yeah Sigur Ros is one of the best bands right now in my opinion

@ Lucas: Thumbs up to Black Moth Super Rainbow and Jack Johnson
-Jordan: Don’t Lose Your Head is another favorite, but I’ll have to check out The Bay
@Brittney, Cake has a new album?? I’m going to dl it right now. Is it good?
I’ve only listened through it a couple times so far, but my first impression is that its AWESOME. Its classic Cake, but at the same time its got this sweet jazz/funk flow throughout the whole thing. Definitely download it!
I love Xavier Rudd, hes very talented in many ways:
mmmhmmm good tunes…
there’s more where that came from
I second Xavier Rudd- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uE0b9XzrjeE
Sooo many more, but this is what I’m jamming to today.
‘destiny’ by zero 7 has always been my number one chill song. and by chill, i mean it stops me in my tracks and i can’t do anything except sit there and listen to it. THAT is what music should be, either that or make you dance a lot. either one is awesome. haha :)
Hey Hallie, Zero 7 is an amazing band. Destiny is beautiful, not to mention ‘In the Waiting Line’ and ‘Distractions.’ Didn’t like the newest album as much but it’s still good
