    Peter Murphy - Cuts You Up
    I actually met a pretty cool stripper who danced to this song. (I saw Peter Murphy in 1989 or 1990, with Nine Inch Nails opening.)

    Some stoner cred you mean....
    Lalo's too mellow 1960's hipster to be considered stoner, but Kyuss...well, while they are labeled stoner rock the only music the stoners I know listen to is Dave Matthews, Phish, String Cheese, et. al. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get on the business end of this bong. Playing "Thumb" now...

    Nick M, tracks 1 and 4 just gave you some serious cred points in my book.

    Recommend you go this route:
    http://www.pandora.com/
    http://www.last.fm/

    With Pandora you type in the bands you listen to and it creates a personalized streaming station based on your genres and the opinions of others with similar musical tastes.

    Last.fm is similar but a tad more limited in terms of exploring new music. It does have more artists, however.

    Both are free.

    Excellent idea - but preferably go for the double whammy, pandora.fm

    No worries. For fun I posted ten nonsense songs by ridiculously named bands in another one of these threads. No one batted an eye. There are a lot of bands out there and everyone tries to "out-obscure" each other.

    My real songs from my IPOD, just doing shuffle real fast:

    1. Imagine by Eva Cassidy
    2. Take It Easy (Live) by The Eagles
    3. Don't Know Where She's Going by Cory Morrow
    4. Open All Night by Bruce Springsteen
    5. Whip You With a Strap by Ghostface Killah
    6. Typical Situation by Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds
    7. O Fortuna by Carl Orff
    8. The Doctor's Office by Dr. Dre
    9. Intro by KRS-One
    10. What Would You Give in Exchange for Your Soul by Lester Flatt and the Nashville Grasseaters.

    Out obscure? The ones I put were actually surprisingly well known compared to some of the stuff on my machine...lol P.s. I only recognize two-three of the bands you posted so...

    irresistible...(real time comments in brackets)

    1. Wayfaring Stranger - Jack White (not a bad start, forgot I had this)
    2. Simply Beautiful - Al Green (oh this is great, no-one better than the rev)
    3. Minsato Le, Mi Dayihome - Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou Dahomey(This looks pretentious I admit, but really this is one song on a fantastic afrobeat compilation i got cause it was on david byrne's label luaka bop)
    4. It's Jigaboo Time - The Pharcyde
    5. The Thrill is Gone - Aretha Franklin (one of three versions on the itunes Chet baker and bb king the other two, if I could only take one with me, it would be this one)

    I'm halfway through and hugely enjoying this - thanks to the original poster.

    6. 4 Better or 4 Worse - The Pharcyde
    7. Broken Stones - Paul Weller
    8. I'll Rise - Ben Harper (lyrics by Maya Angelou I believe)
    9. As - Stevie Wonder
    10. 59th St Bridge Song - Simon and Garfunkel (randomness)

    on with I Hope That I Don't Fall in Love With You by Tom Waits

    2. Appalachia Waltz (Yo-Yo Ma, Mark O'Connor, Edgar Meyer)
    3. Tennessee Waltz (Bill Monroe)
    4. Neville St. Claire's Nostalgia (Patrick Gowers/Sherlock Holmes Soundtrack)
    5. Shine (Benny Goodman)

    7. When You Got a Good Friend (Robert Johnson)
    8. Unequal Love (Del McCoury Band)
    9. Church (Lyle Lovett)
    10. Kim (Charlie Parker)

    Not too bad, actually. I was afraid of what might show up! [​IMG]
