I've been listening to lots of Tori Amos lately. Celtic music puts me in the mood for crafting and dancing, too.

Sometimes while I'm sewing/knitting/crocheting in class while listening to music, people will walk up to me and steal my headphones to listen, and half of them can't believe I can work with anything but classical music or something quiet like that. But mostly I craft to The Beatles, Something Corporate, Armor for Sleep, Bright Eyes, Hellogoodbye, a little Yellowcard, Dashboard Confessional, some Lifehouse, Iron and Wine, Hawthorne Heights... yeah. There are some other 'random' songs on my crafting playlist that don't really fit in with the others, but I like them -- some Dave Matthews, Dandy Warhols, Kill Hannah... yeah. It's a pretty weird mix sometimes, if people steal my player and listen to that particular playlist they kind of look at me funny. I think there's even some country on there -- not that that's bad, but my friends don't really like it.

We recently got XM, and I've been listening to a lot of channel 81, BPM ( dance music). I'm not a huge fan of dance music, but it kinda gets me motivated with the fast beats and such.

the misfits! i lalalalave them. the adicts, dead milkmen, clash, ramones, sex pistols, buzzcocks. some heavy metal and local shit too.

Except for the "heavy metal" that's a lot of what I listen to, too. I pretend metal doesn't exist unless it's amazingly good. Anyway, I simply do not understand how anyone can craft while listening to all the mellow stuff people have listed. I need energetic music or I get bored with what I'm doing.

Jack Johnson- In Between Dreams- is one of my faves! Also, I love good old school Presidents of the United States of America self titled album is a good one for rockin out  Cheesy

Oh, Presidents are great for cranking out stuff!  It depends on what I'm making.  I listen to more moody stuff when I paint, like Eels, Nick Cave, and Tom Waits.  For a lot of other stuff I like more upbeat music like Scissor Sisters, Heartless Bastards, White Stripes...I like a TON of different stuff, though so this can change from day to day.

Anyone here listen to the Postal Service? None of my friends have heard of them, my cousin recently made fun of me saying all "my bands" were named after wierd things (aka.. Dashboard Confessional, the Postal Service, Spill Canvas, Armor for Sleep) he's just a sheltered child musically Wink

i love the postal service (way before anyone i know ever heard of them, might i add). their album is wonderful. i hope they make another.

my tastes keep growing and changing. i'm constantly finding new (and not-so-new)  bands/singers to love. my playlist usually includes pj harvey (after a break up, uh huh her, is a wonderful album), beck, death cab, something corporate (i'm currently listening to konstantine on repeat), foo fighters, cyndi lauper, pixies, matt barber (a wonderful canadian), jill barber (his equally wonderful sister), sarah slean, tegan and sara, weezer, dashboard, beatles, anything motown or 50's/60's pop, hawksley workman, tori amos, the gossip, le tigre, pat benetar, 80's, metric, liz phair, journey, kelly clarkson (my guilty pleasure), joel plaskett

there are many more but that list is long enough
