Nice selections! I grew up on Pink Floyd, Genesis, Rush, then turned to heavy music and 80's hair bands. But thru all the years, my favorite is still Rush.
Right now, a random mix of [primarily] Alice in Chains, Metallica, Disturbed, and Megadeth.
Right now I've got RJD2 going. Love his stuff, and the instrumental albums are awesome for powering through work.
I cannot really say that I have a favorite. But their more recent albums have been getting back to their older style of writing. I cannot wait to see them July 4th in Milwaukee! My brother used to tour with them for a few years as their light operator and did some of their videos as well. So everytime they come to town, I just get in touch with their tour LD and see the show from FOH.
Spotify library on random. Everything from guitar metal, to classic rock, bluegrass, jazz, classical, blues, new age, new wave, southern fried rock, swing, progressive instrumental, country,...... guess that's about it.
Save Ferris, Fountains of Wayne, Propellerheads, Zeppelin, Green Day, Ceasers, Live, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Yes, Peter Gabrial, Damned, Vampire Weekend, Chemical Borthers, Hole, Simon and Garfunkel, just about all that everone else listed, Police, English Beat, Joe Jackson, Clash and BAD, Stone's Jane's Addiction...
Why be bored?
Lotsa cool stuff mentioned in this thread...
I saw Rush when they came to St. Louis a few years back.
But, as for what I'm listening to... just the diffusers. I can't have noise when I do brain-work, I must have silence.
I'm lucky now that my boss and I are separated by an 'external' wall (his office is in a building addition from 1954, mine is in the original 1924 structure, nice thick walls!), because he leaves his radio on all the time. It's classic rock, so I like it, but, it used to drive me batty in our old office, I found it quite distracting.
