I'm surprised but super happy to see PM Dawn twice in those lists, they released real deep things, particularly the Dear Christian... album (it's a virtual tourbook of what goes inside a depressed person's mind - and I know because when I was in depression I felt everything I felt was in there!).

.

I'd have a hard time choosing only 5 artists out of my near 5000 albums collection, but long time favorites have been:

Bill Laswell

Kate Bush

Akiko Yano

George Clinton and everything P-Funk

Ryuichi Sakamoto

Goldfrapp

Eurythmics

Thomas Dolby

.

But I feel this list above is like totally absurd because not representative at all of what I listen to on a daily basis, I'd need a "what are your top 50 favorite artists" thread instead lol

Yeah, limiting it to five is hard. biggrin

Sade - got into her again after watching a Prince interview where he talked about Love is stronger than pride
Al Jarreau
George Benson
Runrig
Bruce Springsteen
MJ from J5 to Thriller

But even though I named six, there are still many others. And I have finally reached a point where I can begin to listen to others again. cool

1. Joy Division / New Order

2. Smashing Pumpkins

3. Soul Asylum

4. Moderat

5. Modest Mouse

...

Check my profile for a more complete list, in case! wink

I like this thread as I need to get interested in something new music-wise. I'm having a hard time listening to anything but Prince right now. But these have been some other favorites (as in I've owned their music or attended their shows):
Muse
Adele
RHCP
Journey
The Time

Tower of Power*
Mingo fishtrap
Bruno Mars
Red Hot Chili Peppers
George Michael

*Seriously. If you haven't listened to Tower of Power, you should. Prince counted "What is Hip" among his favorite other-artist songs. Listen to "Down To The Nightclub" and then to Prince's "Family Name" and you can hear the TOP influence all over it, and other songs in Prince's catalog.

In no order:

Janet

Michael Jackson

Maxwell (if Prince ever had a successor, it'd be him, despite his lack of frequent output)

Culture Club (often dismissed, but took reggae and made it pop)

George Michael (one of the best male voices still alive today)

I have to put in Queen, Annie Lennox, INXS, Christopher Cross (that high tenor voice & beautiful melodies still gets me). I love 70s Yacht Rock. I have a whole Pandora station based on Ambrosia's "Biggest Part Of Me". Barry Manilow gets a huge nod too. Joke all you want, but he can truly write the songs that we all remember, whether you like it or not. James Taylor. Carole King.

I'm not a huge fan of Fleetwood Mac (and I really can't stand Stevie Nick's voice - I know I'm in the minority with that), but I do recognize their incredibly ability to truly craft a song, blend harmonies, and build layers of guitars and keys. I highly respect that with them.

According to Maxwell in the recent Essence Prince set him a message to put out new music. Now we have Lake By the Ocean and a new album on Friday. I hope its a good as the last and I can thank Prince for putting that bug in Maxwell's ear.

Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

Thank You Prince

That were 12 acts, sorry smile
