Ok folks, let's share music!

I guess the best way would be to find links to your favourite stuff online and share them here. YouTube is a good source. If the band/artist has their own website, share that too!

I have to share this video with the world.

I've been listening to a very similar version of it on my favourite radio station, from when they had Thirsty Merc in the studio, and just fell in love with this song. Ray Thistlethwayte has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard.

Great example of Australian music for those of you outside of Oz.

Ok, share away folks.

Oh this is such a cool idea. Here in the States, we have such a limited view of music! I am glad I found this site!

Glad you like the idea Rowan. To be honest, I really just wanted to share that Thirsty Merc song with the world, LOL!

Great video by an amazing band - Disposable Heroes - song : Television, Drug of a Nation here.

An extract of the lyrics here :

The methadone metronome pumping out
150 channels 24 hours a day
you can flip through all of them
and still there's nothing worth watching
T.V. is the reason why less than 10 per cent of our
Nation reads books daily
Why most people think Central Amerika
means Kansas
Socialism means unamerican
and Apartheid is a new headache remedy
absorbed in it's world it's so hard to find us

(I like the bit about books, very appropriate here in this forum)

Now the band has become Spearhead - check them out here

Michael Franti and Spearhead... brilliant stuff!

Ok, I feel the need to move away from Hip Hop...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWfQJRw-6pw

Two of the most beautiful female voices in the world, though mostly Linda is singing in this song. There isn't much by way of Vika and Linda stuff on YouTube. They're just amazing.
