Main stream

Depeche Mode

Majestify with the Mode.

Erasure

Peppy electronica pop.  All kinds of synthesizer sounds.  Some of their stuff is actually quite spiritual.

New Order

Nice.

Marillion / Fish

Firm poetry.
Half of it a little aggravating, the other half brilliant.
Must haves:
  • Clutching at Straws
  • Missing Childhood
  • Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors
  • Internal Exile

Pink Floyd

  • Dark side of the moon - To be played 1 or more times every 10 years.
  • Metal...

Beatles

Been there done that?  Good stuff still!

Earth & Fire

Not Earth Wind & Fire.
A Dutch band from the 70's and 80's era.  They sing in English.

Alphaville

Electronica pop, with a German accent.

OMG

Smooth electronica pop.

Gary Numan

Boxy, but good.

Talk Talk

Talking Heads

David Bowie

The Cure

Police

Pop which plays well in social settings.

Phil Collins

This guy knows his stuff.

Elton John

Very enjoyable.

Jean Michelle Jarre

Synthesizer pioneer.  Tangerine Dream and other synthesizery branded groups don't come close.

Vangelis

Synthesizer, unique, great sounds.  The Blade Runner movie music is made by them.

Abba

Happy happy joy joy !

Focus

  • Hocus Pocus

Madonna (not)

Maybe they can leave her hanging off of that stupid cross of hers.

Celine Dion (not)

"There is a hot potato stuck in my throat, but the show must go on... and on... and on..."

Mod music

And now for something completely different.
I wrote a tribute article on Mod music.
