Ok, I'll just chime in here...like Cav Em, my tastes are very eclectic. Zeppelin, Dave Brubeck, Queen Latifah, Van Morrison, The Smithereens, Stevie Wonder, Hellogoodbye, India Arie, Diana Krall, and of course Elvis (the one with the glasses). The only 2 bands I'd currently recommend that haven't beeen mentioned are Gnarls Barkley and Bottlefly. Gnarls is a collaboration between Cee-Lo Green's lyrics and DJ Danger Mouse's production ... Danger Mouse did the Gorillaz album. Bottlefly is a happy, if slightly thin, sound...they could use a little better production, but listen to the song Umbrella a couple times and I'll guarantee you'll be singing it later in the day.
