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.

2014 Midterm Elections

Anyone like to guess how the mid term elections will go next week and what the results will bring?It looks like the the Republicans will do well but will that mean that all of us are once again racist? If the Senate is taken over by Republicans how long will it take (hours, days, weeks) for the media to place blame on them for anything and everything that is wrong with the country? I'm sure we will be told again and again how we need to look forward and not dwell on the past.Of course us little…See More
