(Original post by ormaybeitsjustnarcissism)
These guys are complete originals. Always make me laugh, like a twisted Madness. Interesting sidenote: he trained living above a brothel for seven years to get that falsetto.

Roisin Murphy is the sexiest female mainstream electronica you could look for. Reminds me of Calvin Harris. She was in Moloko, if you don't already know them I'm sure you'll recognise Sing It Back. (Bring it back, sing it back, bring it back, sing it back to me)

I'll recommend Patrick Wolf because I push him onto everyone. Magic Position is his poppiest that I've heard so far, although not that popular with fans. It's really adorable. The violin bit that starts after he says "Hey!", the duh-duh duh-duh-duh, duh-duh duh-duh-duh-duh, I can tell you now will be in your head for weeks.

That Time by Regina Spektor. One of the few people that can make a song catchy, funny, and sad all at the same time. I wanted a New York accent for Christmas the first time I heard her album.

Prince Harry by Soho Dolls. Apparently they played Stripper in Gossip Girl? I don't watch it, I wouldn't know, but anyway I prefer this one to Stripper. I am very pissed that they got rid of the old video though, with the eighties makeup and the nighttime fight and the uberlong eyelashes. Again supercool music, if you don't listen to this and feel plain and inadequate then you obviously have more confidence than me; lend some?

President - IAMX. More sexy electro, this time from the kinkiest artist since Peaches. It's excellent live, the drums are truly hynotic. This one sticks in your head too; I often get the urge to bellow "For all you loooooooonely boys, I can be presidennnt!" in public, which can have interesting consequences.

Girl Anachronism - The Dresden Dolls. This one can be hard to like straightaway if you aren't used to them, but the speed and talent and video is easy to enjoy. It was a year before my Dad found out there were just two in the band, they make that much noise. Myspace music video because the youtube one has gone, booo. Quite a few fans go on to feel excessive Amanda Palmer love, and it isn;t hard to see why.

I Spy - Pulp. Very discordant and creepy sounding, but probably my favourite after Common People, mainly for the high level of Jarvis' inimitable brand of disdain in the lyrics. Includes my favourite verse of all time, the "My favourite parks are car parks, birds are something you shag" bit towards the end. I wish the link wasn't a Matrix fanvideo, but it was the only album version I could find. A slightly catchier one of theirs which is good (apart from Common People, everyone knows that one) is Misshapes. Actually I've just remembered I first got into them off the Trainspotting soundtrack, proper catchy and if I'm completely honest the main reason I decided to go to Queen Mary's open day last October (it's situated in Mile End)

I don't know how you feel about punk. In The Diary of Adrian Mole he says "Nigel is very into punk, but I don't see the point if you can't hear the words". I do sometimes agree, but with Poly Styrene's voice you just have to sit and marvel and never mind if you can understand her or not (some songs are easier than others). It was her band that first got me listening to punk, mainly for the memorable beginning, this is Oh Bondage! Up Yours by X-Ray Spex.

And to finish, just some straightforward electropop that got me a bucketload of rep off people when I had the lyrics and pictures in my signature (fun memories), it's Turn It Up by Robots In Disguise. The "hah-hah"s get stuck in your head too, and even my girlhating brother likes this band, so they're doing something right.

I shall try to restrain myself from posting here again as I've said loads and got far too into it as usual, but I always think of bands to recommend about a day after I've actually recommended some.
Very comprehensive post.

I'm used to listening to bands like Linkin Park or Nickelback, singers like Rihanna or Britney Spears, or composers like Hans Zimmer or Steve Jablonsky. However, I want to try something that's completely new - can anyone recommend some songs that are different from the ones I listed?

Thanks!
I can understand Britney but Nickelback? :zomg:

I'm a fan of the fact that anyone can like any type of music there is out there if you give it enough of a chance.

At the moment i'm liking a lot of 90s Dance/Electro/Ambient stuff (Leftfield, Air etc.) and also the likes of The Beatles, Pink Floyd and other rock bands from those times. Also as always i listen to a lot of Michael Jackson. He has the best music back catalogue of any artist i have ever come across. You can spend months mulling over all that. Also Trance is pretty damn epic. Trance Nation 1 is an awesome way to get into Trance. Though bloody bloody hard to get hold of. One of the only albums (and i've downloaded hundreds and hundreds) that is almost impossible to find over the internet. Shame as it's magnifico.
