The dah dow part is a play on sounds~my real name is Dawn.

Oh, Dave, don't give in so easily: Eric Clapton, The Who, Led Zeppelin...

This thread should be renamed The Thread That Will Not End.

interesting...

a lot of the bands/musicians I like seem to be brittish

The Who
The Beatles
Eric Clapton

yeah there are plenty of american bands... but those are a few that just stand out like sore thumbs. as far as the UK vs USA good music act wars goes I don't think either place really has the upper hand.

No! Me too! I don't know why...

Really? You should see what you think of the Rheostatics. They're a Canadian icon and they're AMAZING. And check out Daniel Iorio and also Nick Zubeck.

Canadians and Brits are deeper than Americans.
We like to sing about sex, drugs, and rock.
Y'all like to sing about philosophilcal idealisms. The way life is. Not experiences.
We are so stuck on what is happening to us or what's going on in our lives and our small circles.

Wow.

CC, you just boosted my impression of Americans by about 50%. wow. Umn... yes. It's because secretly (or not-so-), Canadian artists espouse socialism (which I know has a very bad name in the US) and despise the capitalist agenda. New Democratic Party all the way. We're socially conscious and politically charged.

And Brits already have a socialist system.

You may not believe it but not all Americans are Democratic. I personally prefer Tyranny

ah, CC, i think it goes both ways.  depends on what bands you listen to i guess.

i won't argue that american music gets that label for itself though.  we deserve it.  too many of us americans are too stuck on ourselves and what we can do to other people.  i don't like american music made in that mindset.  i guess that's why i'm not a fan of just about anything older than ... well.. the last 2 years, haha.  too much of the stuff that's older than that just holds too much sexdrugsandrockandroll.

i don't like music that's made in light of thepast.  i say "thepast" because it's like a topic all it's own.  music keeps changing.  so do i.  my interest in music keeps changing.

and it just seems to me that way too much american music (past AND present, and noteably that of the rock genre) is too focused on such non-impressive themes.

that's one of my favorite songs ever

i don't always agree with their political views, but it's a great song because of what they're trying to say

yes, I've been impressed too with some newer American bands, though, the names don't come to mind quickly. I was being vaguely stereotypical.
Good Musician's are beginning to realize they are stuck on a round planet and if they don't come up with new themes then their fame will alone last a second, if they plan on sticking around.
I close with:
I close my eyes
Only for a moment, then the moment's gone...
It's the same old song
We're just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Just crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind...

Eric Benet is American btw

stereotypes... yes.. i couldn't think up that word when i was writing my last post.  that's what i meant to convery there.

a personal favorite of mine:  (the artist writes this in a sarcastic tone)

"we're only liers, but we're the best
we're only good for the latest trends
only good cuz you can have all those famous friends
besides, we've got such good fashion sense"

FallOutBoy is american too   the song's name is "Our Lawyers Made Us Change the Name of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Sued."

the old name was:

"I Liked You a Lot Better Before You Became a F*cking MySpace Whore"

(... without the '*' )

I like the lines
Welcome to a new kind of tension...Everything isn't meant to be okay

I think I might be an extremist though...Not everyone should be allowed to swim around in the gene pool, myself included in that. I'm sure everyone can name at least one person that should not reproduce.
