How is it that LSD has such a high percentage of well-read users, capable in discussion of the best of literature, philosophy, poetry, etc., but so few with musical interests rising above the prosaic?

How much of this stuff have you actually bothered to listen to?

Much more than necessary.

Rufus Wainwright. He is more fabulous than words. He's known for his covers of Hallelujah and Across the Universe (both of which I think are better than the originals). He's a clasically trained musician and experiments a lot with opera and folk music (both his parents are folk singers). I reccomend for starters Cigarrettes and Chocolate Milk, 14th street, Beautiful Child, The one you love, Poses and my personal favorite Go or go ahead.

Other current obsessions:

The Fratellis- try Baby Fratelli and Henrietta, really catchy!
Scissor Sisters- their new album Ta dah is fantastic, so much fun to dance around to.
The Arcade Fire- their new song "Intervention" is out and I can't wait for their new album. The old one, "Funeral", was really, really, really good.

Great tune.

EDIT: Lily, did that feminist booklist ever get started?  I was really interested, but I'd like to avoid redundancy.

Wait, I was supposed to do one?  My feminist reading is very closely related to health care, so it's pretty light on theory.  I thought I asked Red to make one for the theoretical stuff I missed.

I like the way you think, Gengis.  ;D

New feminist reading list thread to avoid total hijack.

I'll smack you upside the head.

Unless it's an entertaining and/or useful hijack, of course. ;)

In a word: complexity.

Read through this thread and you'll have a better idea of what I mean: http://www.good-music-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,3734.0.html

No no, I get all of that. In a word, though: obvious.

I don't dislike classical. But I also think much of the music I and others have listed is uniquely complicated, original, and intelligent.
