My top ten favourite music artists
See Getting personal: A few top ten lists for the background on this series of top ten posts (this is the second post in the series).
Just because an artist has made one of my top ten favourite music albums it doesn’t mean they make it onto this top ten list of music artists. This list is where longevity and overall quality counts.
Sure, I’ll admit that in some cases this list is influenced by nostalgia as well, but I have taken the entire career (until the present day for those who are still active) of these artists into account here. Some of these artists I do not currently listen to a whole lot, but they still account for many, many months of listening throughout the years.
The list is ordered alphabetically, which means I have not ranked the artists. Picking ten is hard enough as it is.
- The Cure
- Dead Can Dance
- Massive Attack
- Miles Davis
- Simple Minds
- The Sisters of Mercy
- Skinny Puppy
- Stan Getz
Of course this sort of list is always changing – ask me next month and the list will probably be quite different.
Now it’s your turn – which are your ten favourite music artists? If you want to share, do so either by posting a comment with your list or by posting a link to your own blog.
