What music (other than brass) inspires you?

I can often be found listening to Slipknot/Ramstein just before going on stage at a contest to get me going. On a rainy day I have recently discovered The Mad Caddies as my cheer up album. Anything else Punk/Ska is good and all the old 60's 70's classics for a good sing along.

Muse, played very loud usually does the trick for me... or the wannadies on days when everything's just that little bit too hectic...

There are few artists more inspirational than Will Young.
I find his work so deep and his emotive performances move me like no other.

Can't keep this up as the tears are rolling. :cry: :lol: :cry: What a MUPPET.

The guy who wrote the music for Adiemus (Bill.....something....I think), has composed some of the most beautiful work I have ever heard. Magnificent.

Karl Jenkins is the man behind Adiemus , a native of Swanea ( check out karljenkins.com )

Mahler 2 - CBSO / Rattle

That is the most amazing piece of music ever composed in any genre IMHO - if it fails to stir you, then you're dead ;)

I'm also a big Wynton Marsalis fan, Megadeth, Slayer, numerous rock/metal acts and just about anything that hasn't been spat out by computer. Can't beat Mahler though.

there seems to be a lot of love for the old school stuff going on around here... it worries me that hair metal may survive long into this century :?

Wouldn't worry, you're by no means the only one. I do wonder why I bothered putting 'other than brass' in the title of the thread! ;-)
