I'M NO PHOGEY
10. DIGBY (just consistently good pop)
9. SIXPENCE; NONE THE RICHER (yeah, I know they are officially disbanded, but they have one more album to be released.
And Leigh Nash makes me ache all over)
8. Natalie Imbruglia (sexy woman with sexy voice and smart lyrics)
7. FIVE FOR FIGHTING (nice, innovative pop, and hockey fans to boot)
6. THE LEGENDS (terrific Indie rock with great harmonies, great guitar work and distinct motown beat)
5. The MENDOZA LINE (great New York alternative/rock band)
4. WILCO (the heirs apparent to THE GRATEFUL DEAD and PHISH)
3. GOO GOO DOLLS
2. NO DOUBT (and Gwen is SOOOO hot)
and the band i am listening to most:
1. GREEN DAY (love about everything they have ever done)
Honorable mention: THE WHITE STRIPES (check out their great, campy, live version of Dolly Parton's JOLENE on the Blackpool Deluxe album
So here's my try:
1. Kid Rock. Get made fun of, don't care, dig his groove.
2. No Doubt. If Bear can count 'em, so can I.
3. Los Lonely Boys. Can't stop listening. The harmonies just slay me.
4. Alicia Keys. I think she will be around for a long time with that kind of talent.
5. Maroon 5. If Stevie Wonder hadn't decided he was too important for pop after "Songs in the Key of Life" I think his albums would sound like M5's "Songs About Jane."
6. Susan Tedeschi. Blues rocker with a voice to make you drop to your knees in pseudo-religious wonder.
7. Jamie Cullum. Jazz and pop with a refreshing twist to it all. Go see this dude live.
8. Cake. I bug out to their bass lines all day. It ain't pretty.
9. Joss Stone. Jailbait shouldn't be allowed to sound like that when it sings.
10. Sass Jordan. No, she's probably not technically "new" but I wanted her on my list. Canadian lass with a voice ripped from the Janis songbook. She rocks, baby, she rocks!
Katy - I said current, not new, so Gwen definitely counts, and the judges have ruled we'll allow Sass too!
I'm sure Jim would just rather I get a boob job and be done with it.
