Respect to Buddy Holly for being one of the first to embrace it, though personally, I like my music a tad faster; adding a touch of drama and dynamic. Elvis not the only one, but god, he is good. There's so much good music out there from a few decades back. In fact it's all thanks to the music business being not very creative over the last decade, that prompted me to look back and discover many classics!

Listening to MUSIC!
The FallShellacGiant SandDrive By TruckersFugaziACDCBuilt to SpillMelvinsIsisElvis
Nirvana (even if they're not cool anymore)
I know there's no-one terribly exotic on this list but I liked most of them before they became rich and famous (or just famous) (or just a bit well-known).
Except for Cohen and Waits - I'm not that old; this old hippy at work gave me some of their cds in a secret Santa (even though he knew I liked punk!).
And Pink Floyd - some older surfie mates used to play them in their car all the time when I was young
Unkle - End Titles
Susumo Yakota - Love or Die
Colleen - The Golden Morning Breaks

It is indeed strange how human beings can have such differing tastes. I for one, wouldn't listen to Elvis if it was the only CD I owned, nor Buddy Holly et al. R&R just leaves me completely cold. Interesting to see a couple of people liking Marillion. I used to listen to them when I was a teenager and actually I may just go out and purchase to see if I'll still enjoy them now, I would imagine I will.My 10 are:Stone RosesGroove ArmadaEverything But The GirlJack JohnsonTalk TalkThe Beautiful SouthFleetwood MacGeorge MichaelLeftfieldMassive AttackPhew!
