Music makes the world go around

Some people live and breathe by their music, bleed for it even.
Some people couldn't care less about music, they don't listen to the radio, albums, iPod, Zune, whatever or seek out new music at all. I fall into this category. I just don't listen to music anymore. I think it came from my brief stint living in Atlanta where I had a four hour commute (one-way) to work each day and I would hear the same songs over and over on the radio.
After a while I just stopped caring about listening to music.

but everyone has a favorite song, album or artist. The stuff they can always listen to.

For me, off the top of my head and in no particular order:
Queen - Queen just made good music, so many songs to choose from but I like just about every song on their album "a kind of magic"
This was the soundtrack for the 1986 movie Highlander and both the album and the movie are earmarks in my development

Alan Parsons Project - tales of mystery and imagination:
This is a themed album of songs derived from the works of Edgar Allen Poe. It is also the very first CD I ever bought.

David Bowie - Heroes, Changes, Under Pressure, Space Oddity, Never let me down. Geesh, I could go on.

Once more with Feeling - this is the soundtrack to the musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Not only are the tunes catchy, I mean really catchy, where they stick in your brain like peanut butter on the roof of your mouth
but the show was also a bonding moment between my kids and I, making it extra special

            Sweeny Todd - this is the soundtrack to the movie starring Johnny Depp. They did a good job. On the rare occasions, I listen to music this is what I can always listen too.

            Phil Collins - I like his solo stuff like No Jacket Required but I can dig some Genesis too.

            Dean Martin - Ain't that a kick in the head. Probably my all-time favorite song

And If I am in the mood then there is always
Alice Cooper
The Crow soundtrack
Van Halen - I like 1984 and 5150 the most
Motley Crue - I think their Dr. Feelgood album is my favorite

What's yours?
