My all time favorite is Prince.

My current favorite is Ani DiFranco.



I just moved and during the process I went through a bunch of old tapes that I'd forgotten I had. I rediscovered my enthusiasm the Cure, the Church, Martin L. Gore, Swans, the Chameleons, the Replacements, REM, Siouxsie, the Housemartins, the Beautiful South and about a gazillion others!
