        Have no top faves - I just scoot around almost everything, listening as the mood strikes me, trying to discover new and interesting stuff. Have 5 CDs in the changer right now, I can give those to you -

        Andreas Vollenweider
        Great (opera) Tenors of the Century
        Baka Beyond - Spirit of the Forest
        Legends of Polka (yes, polka)
        Smithsonian Folkways collection - Classic African-American Ballads
        I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

          It's always interesting to see how the list varies even for one person.

          Dear & the Headlights
          Manchester Orchestra
          The Beatles (since I was wee)
          Everclear
          OK Go

          Unsure about my last choice, but they are definitely a favorite of recent years.

                My list would be pretty boring. The top acts -- Beatles, Stones, Zep, Doors, Hendrix -- are popular because they're good.

                So my top 5 might not really be my top 5, but a kind of personal top 5:

                1. Beach Boys -- this is based 90% on Pet Sounds, which I never tire of listening.

                2. Cheap Trick -- underrated hard-pop. Great juke box stuff

                3. Galaxie 500 -- shoe gazing at its prettiest and most somber. To be played at my funeral.

                4. Psychedelic Furs -- so sue me, I'm a product of the 80's.

                5. Gang of Four -- Marxist funk-punk, groovin' and angry.

                    I mostly listen to Minimal Techno buuut:

                    1) Leonard Cohen
                    2) Fleetwood Mac
                    3) Sam Cooke / Otis Redding
                    4) Chromatics
                    5) The Knife

                    And The Beatles go without saying
                    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                              Good stuff. I might try a couple of these. Pick me two to start with. I like rock.

                              Don't know who. But she was very pretty.
