    ...in the secular world, if anyone? Are there any groups that you really enjoy that aren't in the Christian market?

    For example, my favorite secular singers/groups are (which are also the only secular groups I listen to, outside of what I catch for the sake of my middle schoolers - I need to know what they listen to):

    Pat Metheny Group/Trio
    Oasis
    Alana Davis
    Starsailor
    Beatles (Their early period, before their music got weird)
    Frank Sinatra

    ...yep... that is about it!

    The secular music I enjoy most would have to be:

    Wilco
    The White Stripes
    Blonde Redhead
    Radiohead
    Sigur Ros
    Bob Dylan
    The Beatles
    The Kinks
    Belly
    Mogwai
    The Beta Band
    Belle and Sebastian
    Lucinda Williams

    It goes in phases and I typically only listen to music in the car, but that's pretty much what I am listening to the most at present.

    I have extremely eclectic tastes in music and I know I’m missing some people...

    Groups/Solo Artists:

    Barenaked Ladies (Quirky pop with a twist – they are excellent in concert)
    The Beatles (all phases except for the dreadful parts of the “White Album” and “Let It Be”)
    Buddy and Julie Miller (alt-country/bluegrass/folk/Americana/neo-traditional country – they’re not easy to classify)
    Daniel Lanois (One of the most underrated artists out there – his new album “Shine” is amazing)
    Dire Straits
    Emmylou Harris (“Wrecking Ball” and “Spyboy” are excellent)
    Janis Joplin (in very small doses – she was from my hometown area and I have a sense of some of her inner struggles and musical/lyrical references)
    Moby (I’m normally not big on dance music, but he manages to make it interesting)
    Paul Simon/Simon and Garfunkel (Paul Simon is an amazing lyricist)
    Sam Phillips (aka “Leslie Phillips”)
    U2 (all eras)

    Older music:

    Hank Williams Sr.
    Nat King Cole
    Frank Sinatra
    Vince Guaraldi

    Even older music:

    Bach
    Beethoven
    Vivaldi
    Mozart

    Music collections:

    Any Wim Wenders movies soundtrack
    Any Motown collection

    There's not much I don't listen to.

    I have a lot of favorites but they change from day to day. The only constant is Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band. Seen them 24 times and going to see them again in a couple of weeks. To be honest though, I do prefer the late 70's era version of the band.

    I like Little Feat, Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett, C,S,N and Jackson Browne quite a bit, too.

    I listen to a lot of other Parrothead music, country, rock, folk, singer songwriter stuff, R&B, cajun, reggae, a little Irish, a lot of bluegrass, some jazz and all kind of other stuff.

    I guess it's easier to tell you what I don't listen to.

    Greetings Brother Jesse.
    As far as I know, Enya is not New Age, although the New Age'ers seem to love her music. Enya is a Roman Catholic, which upsets the New Age'ers when you bring that to their attention.
    If you like Enya, check out the album Perfect Time, by her sister, Maire Brennan - if you haven't already. I purchased mine at either Lifeway or Family Christian Stores.

    Hope you are doing well on this first Sunday in June.

    It's funny but, when I was a kid, John Denver was the last person you'd admit you listened to but now that I'm an adult, I like his music a lot. Especially his early stuff before he got so big.

    By the way, I'd like to add Steve Goodman to my list. I can't believe I forgot about "Chicago Shorty".

    All of you have great tastes in music, and have picked some great artists.

    Some direct comments to some of you:

    ScottEmerson writes:
    &gt;&gt;Beatles (Their early period, before their music
    &gt;&gt;got weird)

    WHAT? Revolver is the greatest rock album of all time, even the folks at VH-1 agreed
    (according to their website) and they never get anything right. [​IMG]

    &gt;&gt;The Beatles (all phases except for the dreadful
    &gt;&gt;parts of the White Album and Let It Be)

    &lt;still laughing&gt;
    You mean like the cheerleaders screaming "Hold that line" in Revolution 9???!!

    Dr. Bob Griffin writes:
    &gt;&gt;Have a hard time getting through a day without that spiritual giant JOHN DENVER

    &lt;laughing again&gt;
    You mean the pantheist?? Great music, but twisted doctrine! Good choice, Dr. Bob. I will follow your lead, and publicly acknowledge my love for his music as well.


    Alright, to add to this wonderful eclectic list of groups/performers:

    Crowded House (the most underestimated band of the 80's)
    Gypsy Kings

    I guess I just like their simpler music, that's all. Revolver isn't terrible, but I'm a big fan of the early music such as "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away," "Help!" and "Can't Buy Me Love."

    In that case, he's right. She's "new age" as a marketing category but you guys are right, she and her sister, Maire Brennan, are Catholic.
