The hardest question ever: What's your favorite band/ musical artist?

Impossible to answer, I know!

But I'm going to cast my vote.

For me, Led Zeppelin may not have been the best, the most important, the most memorable, the biggest record sellers, or even the most influential among contemporary musicians. Certainly they rank somewhere in all these categories.

But what makes them stand out for me is the strange magic! I find Led Zep to easily be the most mystifying band in my collection. I often go into a semi-trance when listening to their albums and long improv jams.

Is there anyone more magical and mystifying?

I have a distinct memory of being in my dad's truck when I was about 5 years old, and Dazed and Confused was on the radio. He listened to the oldies station. It just imprinted on me. Many years later (as a teenager) I heard the song again and instantly the memory flashed back. I recognized the song and it seemed so familiar!

That's when I sought out rock music from a generation past, and found the magic. After seeing this, I picked up my first pair of drumsticks and never looked back. I am still spellbound.

Iron Maiden have been with me all my life. What they do always fits. Wether I'm working out hard, or just listening the music has a transportational effect on me that no other does. There is a power that shifts my perception. I have tried to pin it down and I can't. The individual contribution to the whole is massive, and the whole is huge beyond what I can express.

I like Pink Floyd, "Wave upon wave of demented avengers March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream."

Darkside of the Moon is just amazing album.

I like a lot of songs from these metal bands: Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, Megadeth

White Zombie has some really cool songs:

"The wheels of his Mustang exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45
True Death: 400 Horsepower of maximum performance piercing the night
This is Black Sunshine"

Finally nothing moves. High noon.
Black top rolling below the asphalt drive
A concrete fascination scraping the edge of nothing
This is Black Sunshine"

White Zombie Black Sunshine www.youtube.com...

I'm crazy in love with Sean Yseult the bass player. The way she throws her hair while she plays is amazing. Check out how cool Sean is in this video: www.youtube.com...

How cool would it be to have this band play in your backyard: www.youtube.com...
Sean is so effing cool. The history of the band and how she met Rob is really interesting: www.youtube.com...

I like some new bands. Amazing graphics in this Volbeat video. Check out the tunnel of fire down to hell in this video: www.youtube.com...

Here's another more recent song i like from Pop Evil: www.youtube.com...

I really like this one from Danzig. Great ax work: www.youtube.com...

Speaking of ax work, nothing beats Dimebag Darrell: www.youtube.com...
Too bad that a hole shot Dimebag Darrell.

Here Lemmy shows you what it means to be a liberal: www.youtube.com...

I've been really grooving on the Iron Butterfly IN A GADDA DA VIDA. I listened to it about 20 times over the last 2 weeks:
www.youtube.com...

There's so many good songs and bands. I listen to tons of music of all types so it's hard to figure out what mystifies me.

Oh here's one I forgot. This describes politics in this country: www.youtube.com...

I remember the summer I discovered Atom Heart Mother. Best teenage summer of my life.

OMG that's a good one! How about this gem from Meddle:

www.youtube.com...

It's how I feel about talking politics with Republicans. The song certainly qualifies in the mystify category. I feel like I'm acid when I listen to it!

Thought it would be Echoes


p.s. For the record, I wasn't high when I posted about Scarlet Johansson/ Steve Buscemi. And yes, it was meant to be quirky tongue-in-cheek post.

I found this song to be strangely mesmerizing:

If you really want to blow your mind listen to this version of the song:

You are forgiven. It was so off the wall I really didn't even remember who made the post. Besides 1/2 the things I say are really stupid and the other 1/2 of the time I just get lucky.

Tool.

But that mostly revolves around when their next album will be released!



(Oh.... the low hanging fruit!! Like the answers so far!

Mystified...? Interesting choice of words op.

The first time I heard Loreena McKinnett's music I felt mystified. We are not of the same spiritual beliefs but I love the mystical tones to her music.

Loreens McKinnett. The Mystics Dream

Led Zepplin is a fav of mine as well.. especially the song Thank You .
That song will always resonate a mystical feeling to me.

Led Zepplin. Thank You

Really difficult just to pick one artist or band OP ... I have others I love that mystify me for different reasons.

"Thank You" was a special song shared between me and my first crush. It was also Robert Plant's first full lyrical contribution to the band.

I always think of those special women in my life when I hear "That's The Way." They may have forgotten me, but I still wish them well

Led Zep was ground breaking. The first true heavy metal band with substance. Priest amazing as well. Saw Pink Floyd mentioned a couple of times, they're truly magical and were amazing live.

But my all time favorite music act, the one that speaks to my soul more than any other is the Pogues, amazing lyrics, eclectic and varied musical styles, great live, and a complete maniac as the lead man.


My favorite band to see live was the Ramones:

I read the thread title and thought Led Zep, then clicked on the thread and wallah...

Glad to see we share the same mystic perspective. I'll double down... did you ever see them live?

Bill Graham, day on the green, oakland coliseum,.. that was the most mystical concert I ever attended, and I'm not kidding, I could write a book. I did somewhere on youtube, they pulled the video due to some bs reason...

"Sit with Elders of the Gentle Race,

Worlds are seldom seen.

Talk of days for which they sit and wait,

All will be reveeealed."

No. As I said in OP, this was my father's generation.

I've seen Plant a few times through the years though. I'm loving his solo career.



I mentioned once or twice on ATS that my dad wasn't a big part of my life. One thing we shared was the rock music. When I got diagnosed he went out and bought me Robert Plant's The Principle of Moments.
