I'm starting with an empty library. Any suggestions for bands, songs, and albums that I should add?

What kind of music do you like?

You can't go wrong with a little Professor Longhair.

Kenny Loggins

Give us a genre. You can include the Beatles of course, since they transcend all genres.

70s rock and indie music mostly. 

Kansas

Skynyrd

ELO

Heart

Harry Chapin

Fogelberg

Aerosmith

Queen

Bee Gees

Carpenters

Styx

...you may not like all those, but they should be enough to remind you of other things you like.

You might also make a Pandora station, and see what turns up.

I don't think you can go wrong with pretty much anything from the 80's.

Liturgical Chant?

A little. Only in small doses. The closest I get to liturgical (Gregorian) Chant on a regular basis is Mozart's Requiem. Though that's less a chant and more a work of classical music art. 

I dig some Gregorian chant. It relaxes me. Various Orthodox chants too.

If you're into rock, I recommend the Raconteurs.   

Explosions in the Sky is great. Very good music when you just want to drive around and think about things.

Big stuff done. Sloppy primer is on it (and seats/covers propped open). Now it's just more sanding, more painting, and trim.

"Thanks for that. I'm glad the reaction here is to try and negate the very source I was asked to check out. Since I'm a foreigner here, I look forward to seeing some true American statistics to counter what I've found out for myself.…"

The Barbershop

It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group.  My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found  to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop.  See More
