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.

Will Western civilization collapse?

I don't want to panic but the economic and cultural changes I see disturb me in a lot of ways: 1. Obesity rates skyrocketing just within a few decades (after the advent of mainstream cable TV apparently). 2. Adult and sexually suggestive entertainment being so widely available - I think this can lower men's sex drive and incentive to be high achievers 3. Too much technological convenience - People drive cars everywhere, and rely on services regularily - physical skills like bartering,…See More

How many marriages and LTRs in this day and age are alive vs dead?

Just curious how many relationships and marriages today do you estimate are dead relationships. Such as a percentage wise, 50% or so.I've personally met more couples who's marriages or relationships seemed dead and based more on expediency than strongness of the relationship, which is a bit discouraging.I think there are some cultural factors which may exacerbate this problem:1. Marriages and love relationships are considered "sacred" culturally - in spite of this there are definitely some…See More
