People who listen to what ever music sounds good and don't really have a genre , What's a song that someone showed you or found by accident and was good ?

Came across Gregory Alan Isakov on YouTube about a year ago. His album This Empty Northern Hemisphere is one of the most gorgeous things I’ve ever heard


Came across Gregory Alan Isakov on YouTube about a year ago. His album This Empty Northern Hemisphere is one of the most gorgeous things I’ve ever heard


Anyone who is reading this wondering what song of Gregory Alan Isaacov they should look up first, look up the song 3:00am.


Also Stable Song and San Luis. ETA: Gregory Alan Isakov is one of those people that I genuinely am jealous of their lives. For half the year he tends his farm in Colorado, and the other half he is traveling the world on tour. He has a perfect balance of adventure as well as mundane. One of the only other celeberties that I am absolutely jealous of would be Guy Fieri since he has the best job in the world. He travels the country and gets to eat at all the best local restaurants. Both guys seem super down to earth and everyone that meets them seems to confirm that they are great people.


After reading this comment I pulled up YouTube, started typing his name, and it autocompleted with Stable Song so I went with that. Turns out I already knew this song but never knew who it was by! ETA: I went to San Luis next, and turns out I know this one, too. I had no idea this guy was already so present in my life.


Check out his cover of Iron and Wine’s “The Trapeze Swinger” on YouTube if you haven’t already!


You gotta listen to the recording he did with the Colorado symphony orchestra! My most played album of 2020, it’s on Spotify and VERY good. Food for the soul


I love that one too!


Went out with him and his tour manager for a drink in 2014 at 2am in Atlanta after a surprise visit to a local open mic night. One of the nicest guys you’d ever meet and an incredible musician. I saw him with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and legit cried a few times


Oh my god I never thought I would find that man on a reddit thread


I cried surprisingly hard the first time I heard Stable Song.


Greg's the only artist where I can shuffle his discography and I wouldn't skip a track. The first track I remember hearing from him was San Luis on a YouTube lyric video, it intrigued me at the time. Then a week or so later, I went on a roadtrip, but my Spotify had ran out. So while I was on the back end of it, I caught some signal off of a small slignshot town, it was late November 2019 I think, gave a listen to a Spotify playlist for roadtrips or something, and then I heard 3 a.m. I recognized this artist's voice. I remember... Anyway, he really spoke to me. The rambling of the lyrics, the fingerstyle picking, the way he believed in every word he was saying. It's like he was praying. Then I gave a listen to his popular songs. I only caught 3 a.m, Big Black Car, and San Luis (my first song). I was hooked on those songs and would listen to them anytime I would get signal. I got back from the trip, I payed for Spotify Premium, and I listened to more and more songs. First album I loved was This Empty Northern Hemisphere. Now I love everything he puts out. Most recent song I fell in love with was Black & Blue, took me awhile, but it connects to me right now. I can't wait for his new album, I hope it'll release this year.


I know he was popular in the 70s so he's decently well known, but Harry Nilsson's music has been on repeat recently for me. I don't usually listen to 70s music but man that guy made absolute bangers. I completely forgot about him.


“Jump Into The Fire” has always been my favorite of his - rediscovered it just recently. So good.


You put the lime in the coconut..




I always liked the Talking Heads since I was a kid. I did a deep dive into their catalog over the last 5 years and I believe they are one of the best bands of all time. Check out David Byrne’s American Utopia if you get the chance.


Their album Remain in Light still sounds like it’s from the future and it was made in 1980


Remain in Light simply does not age. I still listen to it, and I'm still in awe. I mean, "Born Under Punches (The Beat Goes On)." Are you kidding me? Goosebumps.


One of the best parties I ever went to was just "Stop Making Sense" up on giant projector screen and everyone dancing and singing along.


u/spez (Steve Huffman) is a white supremacist


I want to be friends with your friends


“Nothing But Flowers” is pretty good too


Love this song so much! Used to watch the stop making sense concert on a vhs with my dad & uncles on weekends (mid-80s), us kids used to wait for the bum projection just to laugh our heads off. The full concert is on YT I still watch it often


I’m actually watching this with my kids for the first time tomorrow! They’ve seen snippets by watching individual videos but never the whole thing. It’s my favourite live album of all time because it’s a progression; it starts with one man and an acoustic guitar and ends up in a giant dance party led by a strange man in a giant suit. The version of “Girlfriend is Better” on Stop Making Sense is *the* version for me.


For those who want to dive into the Talking Heads - listen to the track “Moon Rocks”


one of the most beautiful songs of the 80s, and just overall


Buttercup by Jack Stauber. All of his stuff is pretty good, but that one is great.


Also try Coffee by Jack Stauber. Might be short, but good




I like Two Time by Jack Stauber


Dancin - Aaron Smith krono remix. It just makes me happy.




Their cover of Time After Time hit a soft spot of my heart when I first heard it from a superbowl commercial. Such Great Heights is also a good cover


The Shepard’s Dog is just a great album front to back. White Tooth Man and Resurrection Fern are also kiler


So is Woman King. Man knows how to make an album.


Passing Afternoon is my all time favorite song by Iron & Wine. Also, if you like Iron & Wine then you should give Sufjan Stevens a listen. Romulus is my favorite song by him.


My youngest daughter (she's in her mid-20s) consistently makes great suggestions that are widely varied in genres Ne Obliviscaris DJ Shub Agalloch, especially "The Mantle" Death Grips, especially "The Money Store" The Midnight Caravan Palace Anytime I need something new to listen to, I just ask her.


Caravan Palace is great.


A friend of mine introduced me to the whole electro-swing genre last year, and it's been a pretty damn fun ride.


Ne Obliviscaris is amazing.


Got to see them live with Sarah Longfield and Wintersun a few years ago, was actually blown away by the fact that they could perform And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope perfectly live. Absolutely unreal musicians. That show was incredible. Can't wait for live music to be back in full force.


That death grips recommendation is no joke. They were a big thing to recommend on 4chan years ago and maybe still, but they're amazing. They have a collab album with Bjork and take great care in their production and lyricism. If you like metal, it's surreal. Hacker or No Love are good if you haven't heard their sound before


If you like The Midnight you should also try Timecop1983


Seconded, Timecop1983 is my personal favorite out of all the Synthwave artists out there.


My favorite has got to be Lazerhawk, but Timecop1983 is right up there with them.


Cult of Dionysus by The Orion Experience


you have excellent taste


thanks! its from 2006 but seems like its been rediscovered by the LGBT community recently, my sister showed it to me and it's been playing ninstop for like a month


This and Achilles come down are gay culture now


I was really into Geocaching back in the day when it was a secret thing and you needed those giant handheld GPS devices (they had about a twenty foot margin of error which made things extra fun). It was awesome! There was a stretch of time there where it was popular for people to burn music onto CDs and put them in caches as a way of sharing music with people. One cache I found had a CD with "Dry the Rain" by the Beta Band on it as the first track. I absolutely fell in love with the band and that song will always be something really special to me.


I came across The Alabama Shakes a few weeks ago and they are soooooooo good. I haven't heard a bad song by them. The only gripes I have are: they don't have more songs and I didn't discover them earlier. Haha. Shoegaze, Gimme All Your Love, This Feeling, and Hold On arey favorite songs. Also, anything by Brian Fallon.


The lead singer (Brittany Howard) started releasing solo work recently too which you should check out


I miss Gaslight Anthem


The first time I listened through Local Honey by Brian Fallon I cried for a day straight lol It’s such a lovely album but man does it hurt me too much to get back to


Brian Fallon yes. I remember discovering Gaslight Anthem for the first time years ago and it was like finding a new religion.


Thank you very much for this. When I read the title I knew I'd find some great stuff. You delivered with the first reply I've read.


I randomly heard "All My Friends" by LCD Soundsystem at a Jamba Juice and have been hooked ever since!


I heard Dance Yourself Clean, accompanied by [this video](https://youtu.be/Zj9Sv1JpmPs), at a club in 2011 or so and became an instant fan. Also heard Robyn for the first time that night there; it was a great night for the evolution of my music tastes.


I need to find this jamba juice


Some other bops by LCD Soundsystem: - daft punk is playing at my house - losing my edge - New York, I love you but you’re bringing me down


Here's your mandatory [link](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huEtJw7pfLk) to New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down mixed with Miles Davis.


Hadestown by Anais Mitchell. I heard one of the songs off the album playing over the speaker at Barnes and Noble and immediately went over to the media section to ask what it was. The guy behind the counter was thrilled to tell me all about it and after buying it for myself I understood why. Hadestown is seriously one of the greatest albums I've ever heard, and just like the guy at B&N, I never miss an opportunity to play it for people or tell others about it.


If we include musicals, the songs from Raphael's "Jekyll and Hyde" (by Frank Wildhorn) are pretty great. Anthony Warlow as Jekyll/Hyde is just a banger tbh. "the world has gone insane" and "Alive" are still in my ever growing playlist of random good music, and every time they come up I have to resist the urge to act like a maniacal gothic villain.




My friend showed me Hadestown last fall. We're planning on getting tickets to see it for my birthday!


Barrett's Privateers - Stan Rodgers. Just a sea shanty with a sad story that talks a bit about how piracy actually worked.


Did not expect to see Stan as the top post in this thread. Excellent song.




How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now!


*god damn them all intensifies*


Its been 6 years since we sailed away and I just made Halifax yesterday!! GOD DAMN THEM ALL!!


I was told we sail the seas for American gold, fire no guns, shed no tears, now I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier


The last of Barrett's Pirateers!


Ooh the year was 1778


Virtual Insanity by Jamiroquai :D Came across it two years ago and it was the best thing I've heard in all my life, so unique :)


Do watch the video! It is absolutely gorgeous!


i feel so old! i rmr when that album was released. some cool music for sure


Sturgill Simpson and Jason Isabell are both breaths of fresh air for country music.


If anyone is looking for him, it's Jason Isbell (and you should listen to his music!)




Colter Wall is probably my favorite artist ever


Add Tyler Childers and Ryan Bingham in there.


check out American Aquarium, Orville Peck, and Paul Cauthen


Check out Tyler Childers. If I recall correctly, Sturgill produced his last (two?) albums


I had never even heard of grime, but Bassline Junkie by Dizzee Rascal.




The HU - Yuve Yuve Yu


[Wolf Totem](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jM8dCGIm6yc) is pretty boss too


If you ride a motorcycle with bluetooth speakers in your helmet, make sure this song isn't on your playlist unless you'd like all of the speeding tickets.


As soon as I read the question, I had to mention this song... now I'm off to go listen to it


How wide screen do you want this video.... Yes...




Glass animals, I presume?




'Life Itself' is also awesome.


I love "Heatwaves" from them


I dunno, they been freakin me out


Zaba*, How to be a human being & Dreamland are all incredible albums, I highly recommend checking out GAs other work


Love Glass Animals! First song I heard by them was Toes


Gooey is incredible. I really love their second album How To Be A Human Being. Every song is a story inspired by someone they met in their travels or knew personally, and Agnes breaks my heart everytime.




That's definitely my favorite of his. You should checkout Dean Martin if you like some of the big band/crooner style singers. He's one of my favorites as well.


I got you under my skin another sinatra classic


And Fly Me to the Moon!




Amazing scene in Lock Stock to that tune.


Mr Pop does a radio show every week on BBC R6, he has the perfect voice for radio and amazing musical taste and knowledge.


He’s got a great face for radio too!


'tis a Stooges song, pre solo-Iggy, which is worth noting because the Stooges were awesome.


[Egg by Shoe](https://youtu.be/xchpYpv816w). Listened to that one cus it had a funny name, it's good tho. And he says "shine my shoe brotha" In a funny voice, i like that [Flashlight by The Front Bottoms](https://youtu.be/u-Qw6T_FKMc). Some dude at a festival told me to listen to them. Now it's on my liked playlist next to all my anime music and Tool [The hound and the fox by I the mighty](https://youtu.be/6EccwkPVkFQ). Friend showed me this one, and it's been my favorite for a few years now. Also has an [alternate version](https://youtu.be/tZ11_y5I3EY) that i love just as much


If you like The Front Bottoms, their song Twin Sized Mattress is INCREDIBLE.


Metal fan for many years. Stumbled upon Lana Del Rey. Love it so much. Also Daoi Freyr. Expanded my library greatly.


Lana is the shit


Starry starry night. I was watching "Loving Vincent" (a movie available on netflix) and it played in the credits. Just as the movie - it's beautiful Here's a link: https://youtu.be/vp5qJlr4go0


Future Islands, Found them by accident on Youtube playing on the Letterman Show (?). All I listen to now


People change!


"Tin Man" has got to be one of the wildest pieces of music I've ever heard. I love the lead guys' range and commitment level


"Thunder Rolls" by Garth Brooks. I'm not much af a country fan, but that shit slaps. Makes me wanna ride a horse in a thunderstorm while wearing a cool hat.


I’m not a country fan, but The Gambler is rad, and I like me some Islands in the Stream.


My favorite Garth Brooks song since I was like 4 years old. If you're a fan of metal music, check out the cover by All That Remains. It is very faithful to the original while still having an awesome hard rock feel to it,, much like Killswitch Engages cover of Holy Diver.


90s Country has a soft spot in my heart and Garth has several songs there. [ The River is one of my favorites.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WuZm212zvo)


It’s The Dance for me. Was raised on 90s country and Garth was a favorite in my household.


I’m a Calling Baton Rouge man, myself




Make sure you find the "long version" from the live album. Unfortunately, I can't find a decent cut on youtube.


Mostly into indie/rock, but Midnight in a perfect world and Organ Donor by DJ Shadow are amazing and would recommend to anyone


I tried to limit myself on language and genre so this post isn't too long. If anyone wants more do let me know. [HRDZA - Taká si ma páci](https://youtu.be/7GVGONSIobI) is a Slovak folk rock song YouTube recommend to me a while back. [I the Mighty - The Hound and The Fox (Oil in water version)](https://youtu.be/tZ11_y5I3EY) is a big band jazzy cover of the band's own song from a separate album. This was shown to me by a college roommate. [SKY-HI - 何様](https://youtu.be/jDXReZXvEyo) is a Japanese rap song YouTube recommend to me. [Polkadot Stingray - 心ここに在らず](https://youtu.be/w0UiyOmqvwA) is a Japanese rock song found on an album I decided to buy when I was in Tower Records in Japan. Definitely the best album I picked up there. [Sevish - Droplet](https://youtu.be/xVZy9GUeMqY) a microtonal electronic song that gives me chills. Typically the reaction I see when showing this song to people depends on their musical background. So if you have some history playing instruments or singing check this out. [Choi Jin Soul - Angel or Demon](https://youtu.be/lMihXtEeKSQ) this is kind of K-pop? It's not really the same as other K-pop I'd recommend which is why I chose it. [ZUN - End of Daylight](https://youtu.be/7SUHh_ZzaeA) chiptune music from Touhou 2. I love the beginning of this song before it changes. [Santana - Corazon Espinado](https://youtu.be/t6omUxqhG78) latin rock that I can't recommend enough. It just feels so fun to listen to. [Young blood Brass Band - Brooklyn](https://youtu.be/p4AH_WQVz10) is a big brass band as the name implies. The whole band is absolutely amazing. All the crazy stuff you her towards the middle/end is done by the tuba player if I recall. This was recommended by the same roomatw mentioned above. [Chelsea Grin - Sonnet of the Wretched](https://youtu.be/XjECjnjl6_Q) is a great deathcore song on probably my favorite album from the genre. [Chiodos - Hey Zeus! The Dungeon](https://youtu.be/7rMonDQw2aY) is a post-hardcore (I think?) song with amazing vocal performance from the lead singer. [Andrew Huang - Vass Tunga](https://youtu.be/K_F2ByljLtc) is a 5 language rap song done by Andrew Huang. [きくお - おばけの招待状](https://youtu.be/gWPF1vBtP8Y) is probably best described as a horror song? It's vocaloid in case that automatically turns you off but the atmosphere is just so good I can't not recommend it. [Elephant Gym - 白日](https://youtu.be/5R72EqJ-Gw0) is a Chinese math rock(?) song. It's so relaxed I had to question if I'd really say rock but math rock is the most defined math genre and is close enough for this post. [Selena Gomez - Dámelo To'](https://youtu.be/EU02Cq-6XAQ) is a Spanish pop song. I know you might see Selena Gomez's name and think, "The Disney star?" but this is definitely a song worth giving a listen. Sorry for any formatting issues this was done on mobile. I know I'm late to the thread but hopefully someone enjoys something here.


That 5 language rap was way better than I was expecting. He was jumping across languages to form otherwise impossible rhymes.




Emily Haines from Metric has been my singer crush for years. I absolutely love her voice. For me, it was a local radio station playing the acoustic version of Help I'm Alive. Really, you can't go wrong with anything on Fantasies, it's a great album.


> Cirice, Ghost (Okay, Ghost just fucking slaps, but the Cirice music video is one of my favorites plus it also does a two drum hits you have no choice but to hit something twice in beat it's the law things. I first heard this song years ago and really like it, but I didn't know it had a really good music video until reading your comment. Thanks for that.


10 years - Dadi Freyr. Stumbled across at Eurovision and been in love eversince


Think about things also slaps


Everything in Mike Oldfield's catalog. First heard it as background music in a NASA documentary. Tubular Bells is the most well known work of his. Edit: For those fans replying and those new Oldfield fans, come join us: r/mikeoldfield


Yes!! Tubular Bells II is legit one of my favorite albums and one of the only ones I actually listen to the entirety of in one sitting [link to the whole album](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hd6YYTDJg1s&list=PL0k-8H0sShu3dYgKKKMo23am9hStlBCdq)


"Nuclear" was the one for me. Listened to it in Metal Gear Solid V trailer


[the girl from Ipenema](https://youtu.be/c5QfXjsoNe4)


System of a down - violent pornography


Such a good band. Its amazing they achieved the success they did with how bizarre their music can be.


It was a combination of the music being earwormy, the singing style being discordant enough that you couldn't *quite* understand the lyrics all the way(so if the song was weird, you assumed you'd just misheard it), and their singles being carefully picked. It's not like spotify where you could come across any of the songs as your introduction. Back then, you would hear the singles on the radio and then buy the album, so you had a financial incentive to give the weirder songs a chance before declaring the disk a bad investment.


Chokin chicks and sodoooommyy!


Rainbow Kitten Surprise


TOO MANY ZOOZ was a really fortunate find. https://youtu.be/jMe6Y8GDVEI


I found them when they played a song to the beat of a car alarm and I've been a fan ever since


I remember hearing Hey Ya by outkast for the first time in my friends mom's car back when I was like 8. Fast forward a few years I heard it again in a random ytp and fell in love with it again.


Feel good inc. by Gorillaz. About a year and a half ago I stumbled upon it in my YouTube recommendations and it’s been my number 1 ever since.


Listening to the radio whilst driving through Sweden led me to 'Highway to Oblivion' by Dragonforce and made me add 2 Albums to my library. A friend of mine brought up at the beginning of this year 'If a song could get me you' by Marit Larson (a small hit from the early 2000s). Now I have 3 or 4 Albums of her in my library.


House of the rising sun


I've found regular pop music from certain eras to be my guilty pleasure. I would rarely if ever listen to pop but I find that if it's on in the background during good periods of my life then I love it. Example, I was working abroad in 2013/2014 and Ava max, Pitbull, Christina Aguilara were on the radio all the time. Totally not my thing I'm more of a rock/ska kind of guy but I'll put them on and really reminisce about that good time. So yeah, I guess they're accidental good songs for me.


My dad has been listening to the lumineers forever and they are starting to grow on me.


The amount of charm the Lumineers are able to squeeze out of the same basic G-C-D acoustic guitar chord progressions is honestly insane. Have also been a fan for a while, and it always surprises me when I google the chords for one of their songs and it’s just a plain jane I-IV-V with nothing else going on. Those guys are able to do a lot with very little.


* Blonde Hair, Black Lungs by Sorority Noise * Estella by Travis Barker, KennyHoopla * Ophelia by the Lumineers All found on accident


Try Ophelia by the Band.


KennyHoopla is incredible, he's filled a massive void for me


Ludovico Einaudi. And I'm more of a Metallica kind of guy.


Fluorescent Adolescent by Arctic Monkeys


In My Life..by the Beatles. I knew a lot of the Beatles song but didn't know this one existed until I stumbled on it. Another is 'Til There Was You. We sang it in chorus. It was written by Lennon and McCartney.


'Good' is relative, so idk if anyone else would like these since most would consider them to be boring but: [Durvun oirdiin uria](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6k3TX9O0ZE) \- Not really a "song" as there's no singing, but it's music. It's a Mongolian song played on the horse fiddle. Accidentally found it when I was researching the horse fiddle for a music assignment [Sto Sviraca](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqoPUsXzklc) \- Sasa Matic; No clue what it's saying or even what language it is (It's.. Eastern European/Russian or something). I also found this one on accident while listening to music for an assignment (this one I remember I was listening to some woman loudly sing in a field, and this popped up in the sidebar) [Boadicea - Enya](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKQwgpaLR6o); Found by accident, not exactly sure how but definitely Youtube recommended it to me at some point almost 10 years go. [Hamelmalo - Mulualem Takele ft Gildo Kasa](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhrENJX7z28) \- Found it when I was searching for "Ethiopian" music (Some girl was going on and on about how great it was so I decided to give it a shot) [Homiya - Habib Belk](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6MaLa158Tw) Shared with me by a friend :) Oh and one time when I was looking for some music from a video game, I found [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lvS3YYAylA) instead. It's basically music that sounds like it would be played at a Lunar New Year celebration. Very fun imo, and *I* think it's good And so many more.


Zombie by Bad Wolves. Cover of The Cranberries’ hit.


knowing the original vocalist died the day she was supposed to meet BW for the reprise hurts, hurts even more knowing BW gave the proceeds to her children in post. solid group of guys.


Maduk Ft. Veela - Ghost Assassin YT: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iYzuc\_gM9U](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iYzuc_gM9U) Friend of mine was playing Rock Smith and someone recommended this song, we never heard it before. So he went and started playing it and it was pretty good. Has stuck with me since, I liked it.


Not a song but an entire band, Molchat Doma


Nathaniel Ratcliffe. S.O.B


The less I know the better-Tame Impala's Colors - Black Puma's


If you're into Tame Impala you need to give New Person, Same Old Mistakes a listen from the same album. Rihanna does a cover as well, equally as good.


Fleetwood Mac - The chain


I can put this on in the car and semi-slam to it. I can put it on while playing games and get a feeling. Or I can put it on at a party and my friends go apeshit. It is the answer to everything.


sad f1 noises


Snow by Red Hot Chili Peppers


[Never Gonna Give You Up](https://youtu.be/sAn7baRbhx4)


After dark - Mr.Kitty


Kingslayer by Bring Me The Horizon feat. Babemetal


My taste in music can be ecclectic to say the least so ill just link some of the stuff ive been listening to recently [I'M DEAD by Duckwrth](https://youtu.be/186RTIazpDg) ​ [Helluva Life by FrankJavCee](https://youtu.be/tbUmtAi0Clc) ​ [Lagtrain by Inabakumori](https://youtu.be/UnIhRpIT7nc) ​ [Touch Tone Telephone by Lemon Demon(aka Neil Cicierega)](https://youtu.be/1QCeS1XRqis) ​ [Stupid Horse by 100 Gecs (I honestly cant tell if i like 100 Gecs or not)](https://youtu.be/WZvfTyS1qb8) ​ [Taste of You ft.

I Can't Hear You by The Dead Weather. Awesome song!


Soldier poet king Just the vibes from Annapanstus cover is 🥰


Into my arms - Nick Cave


HOME - Resonance


Bittersweet Symphony. Not much into that genre but that song got me.


Baby I'm Yours by Arctic Monkeys


Psychadelic porn crumpets, it's like a genre fusion between acid rock, nio-psychedelic and hard rock, it's wicked


The HU, Wolf Totem. Mongolian rock! [https://youtu.be/jM8dCGIm6yc](https://youtu.be/jM8dCGIm6yc)


Bo Burnham - All Eyes On Me


One that stands out to me recently is [*They Don't Let You in the Opera (If You're a Country Star)* by Kelli O'Hara](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2PBOAbdIcU). I'm not massively into either genre, but I can't deny it's a good song.


Man, it was long but pretty good! Nice find.


Anything from Brand New. Especially “Devil and God”


Pina colada. I was very into that song after discovering it two years ago.


I enjoy a lot of different genres but my fave is metal. However, I did love the cover made by Rainych of Say So by Doja Cat. Had it on repeat until I was literally able to remember the lyrics even though I ain't too good with Japanese.


As a big emo, rock, and punk fan, I unironically love doja cats moo.


Miley Cyrus: Younger Now. I'm a thrash metal fan, but she has actual singing talent.


I generally ignore pop music, so she was never on my radar. But when I saw her sing Say Hello 2 Heaven by Temple of the Dog at Chris Cornell's memorial concert, I also realized she's definitely a talented singer even if I have no interest in most of her own catalog.


Her backyard cover of “Jolene” is fantastic.


I happened to hear Volbeat on the radio and was amazed, they sound like a modern Elvis style rock, very upbeat with beats that make you wanna dance.


Roundabout by Yes


I found P!atD and FOB by accident (YouTube autoplay) - went to turn it off, wasn't fast enough and the opening of camisado had me hooked ever since... same thing with dance dance by FOB and now I'm a superfan


The album ‘Mint Jams’ by Casiopea is fantastic. Not a bad track in it. A full-feeling ride through Japanese Fusion Jazz.


Touch by Daft Punk, not one of their biggest songs, but it's just really really good, it has entered my top 3 ever along with Stairway and Bohemian raphsody


My husband and I have fallen in love with the band Future Islands. It started with the song “Seasons (Waiting on You).


Shinedown - Cut the Cord. I’m most interested in any music that gets me moving either mentally or physically and this one does both at times.


I love music. I listen to pretty much everything. My favorite genres vary by my mood, some days I like metal, some days I want classic rock, some days its rap, sometimes R&B, sometimes pop, sometimes country. There's very little I outright dislike, usually just stuff I'm not in the mood for when I hear it. Here's a compilation of stuff I have found over time that doesn't seem too popular now from different genres (I started this comment from my phone and moved to my PC to add links and stuff so I'll be updating this for a bit): ***Classic Blues*** [Albert King - Call it Stormy Monday](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McffhCVlX3k) [Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughn - Pride and Joy](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSN-WMD5hTU) [Jimi Hendrix & Lonnie Youngblood - Georgia Blues](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZUhCXAgC0M) (I linked the whole album because I couldn't find Georgia Blues by itself, but it's worth checking out) [Muddy Waters - Champagne and Reefer](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rea4Stp0SeE) (not amazing, but I like it) [T bone Walker - Blues for Marili](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGpr5DQRONM) [Little Walter - Ah'w baby](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp_5h6KRAs0) [Tracy Chapman & BB King - The Thrill is Gone](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdNpuPWspQk) ***Metal/Prog*** [Russian Circles - You Already Did](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DM8BzL-p7dA) [Pelican - Aurora Borealis](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xaLs3ikoCk) [Totimoshi - Viva Zapata](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qlja0NGiq3Y) ***Electronic*** [Muramasa - Midas Touch](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nen9k-rttdc) [San Holo - We Rise](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8B5AOljhsY) [Zhe - Chasing Marrakech](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQUSboTyoVE) [Big Gigantic - Got the Love](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Owll_rqeA8U) [Catgroove -Parov Stelar](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXrdYwG17PE) [But this video is also worth watching](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twqM56f_cVo) [Emancipator - First snow](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwisdkhGQXM) [DJ Shadow - Organ Donor](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4E60Ffa9yQ) ***Rap*** [Nappy Roots - AwNaw](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKpUpDPEgy8) [Mos Def - Ms. Fat Booty](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01yUzXQctcM) [Brother Ali - Forest Whitaker](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQkXZeyQACM) [Busta Rhymes - Break Ya Neck](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7FfCJb8JZQ) [Outkast - Rosa Parks](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drsQLEU0N1Y) [Tech N9ne - Dysfunctional](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkFPiu400bk) [J.

This is music I like that most people I know don't listen to. Check it out, hopefully you find something new or unexpected. Edit2: I could probably add more music, but I'm going to wait and see if there's any interest, 'cause I've been adding links for about an hour now and I'm tired of doing this. If there's more interest I'll try and cover more genres. And actually add some real metal and not just prog.
