Give me the names of some good songs to download please, as I have had a mental block and want to make a good CD. Not classics, as I have enough of them. Preferably rock/indie/alternative, but I will try anything….

My Current MMJB Playlist:

Jimmy Eat World - Get it faster
Weezer - Buddy Holly
QOTSA - No one knows
The Hives - Hate to say I told you so
Bloodhound Gang - Chasey Lain
Puddle of Mudd - She hates me
Placebo - Every you every me
Run DMC - It’s tricky
Less Than Jake - All my friends are metalheads
Incubus - I wish you were here
Greenday - Hitchin’ a ride
Foo Fighters - Learn to fly
Goldfinger - Jackie Chan
Electric Six - Danger High Voltage
Alien Ant Farm - Smooth Criminal
The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony
Rob D - Clubbed to death
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme

Add to that anything by Oasis and anything from the Tenacious D album. Le voila!

Admittedly, a chunk of this is given over to older tracks (they don’t make ‘em like they used to). What do you think?

Thanks a lot guys! There is certainly a lot of good musical taste on these boards…

I already have aqualung, chili peppers, Tenacious D (I LOVE Tenacious D, ‘the search for inspirado’, ‘wonderboy’ - brilliant!), a few white stripes songs.. fell in love with a girl is my favourite there, some nirvana, a few feeder songs etc.

A recommendation for you lot….. any song by a little-known band called ‘I am kloot’, get downloading! And I dont think anyone mentioned incubus who are great.

Keep ‘em coming!

Jessibug, that was a really good list… thanks again!! I’m getting some great ideas now.

itchyfeet - australia by manics is amazing, but only because it was theme tune to renford rejects! and 500 miles - what pure brilliance!

Andy U - really appreciated being reminded of some of those, especially JJ72 and Embrace.

A couple more songs I came up with:

T-Rex - 20th century boy (someone might have said that)
Status Quo - Down down, Whatever you want
Bloodhound Gang - The vagina song
Hives - Main offender
Mercury Rev - Goddess on a hiway

Keep Going!!!
