    i was hoping that each of you could give me 5 songs that i should listen to. i'm not putting any stipulations on this, just give me 5 songs that will help me expand my music library.

    i'll try and listen to your guys' suggestions, and then get back to you. thanks, and i look forward to seeing your suggestions.

    thanks for all of the replies so far, guys. i haven't heard of many of the songs, other than the weezer and deftones song. so, i am excited to hear the new stuff.

    if you haven't replied yet, do so, and i'll try to get all of the songs at once. thanks for your input.

    If the goal is to "expand" your collection, we'd have to know what you like already, but here are 5 from different genres:

    "Aicha" - Cheb Khaled
    My favorite example of "Rai" music, a very cool fusion of Eastern (Arab/Berber) influences with modern Western pop.

    "Madame George" - Van Morrison
    In case your "Van Mo" exposure is limited to the overplayed stuff like "Brown Eyed Girl" or "Moondance." This long "story in song" is the center piece of his best (and one of my favorite of anyone) album, "Astral Weeks."

    PUNK/IRISH FOLK (admittedly, an obscure genre)
    "Fairytale of NY" - The Pogues with Kirsty McColl
    Fantastic duet with Shane and Kirsty about a drunk tank in NY on Christmas eve. If you haven't heard the Pogues, I'm not sure there's much like them out there.

    COUNTRY/FOLK (tie)
    "Angel From Montgomery" - John Prine and Bonnie Raitt
    Prine is way undervalued as a song writer, and his voice has a unique quality that harmonizes beautifully with Raitt here...

    "If You Were the Woman, and I Was the Man" - Cowboy Junkies w/John Prine
    ...and with Margot Timms here.

    Boards Of Canada- "In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country" from In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country The only song this band(?) should have recorded. Sublime.

    Anti-Pop Consortium- "9.99" from Tragic Epilogue The worlds most inconsistent experimental/furturist/primitivist rap collective has a lot of great songs, but this is one of the more accesable ones.

    Lee "Scratch" Perry/The Gatherers- "Words Of My Mouth" from Words Of My Mouth There are many, many versions of this song, but the Gatherers version is far and away the best. Lee Perry is a bad man.

    Thelonius Monk- "Japanese Folk Song (Kojo No Tsuki)" Straight, No Chaser Goddamn, this is such a great song. Too bad an ex-girlfriend ruined it for me.

    Morton Feldman- "Piano and string Quartet" Piano and String Quartet OK, this technically isn't really a song, per se, but I consider it an absolutely essential part of my listening collection.

    Cannibal Ox- "Iron Galaxy" Cold Vein So this makes six, but I'm not counting the last one since it's not a song. plus, I couldn't really leave this off. If i could only listen to one rap album, it would be Cold Vein.

    Megadeth--the song was a single, performed on Letterman, and included on their greatest hits and double live album, not terribly obscure (good cut though) :)

    KWS--love him, but nobody out-covers Jimi better than SRV, I'll take Stevie's Voodoo Chile over anyone's, including Jimi.
