Anything 80's is my favorite ... except for Metallica and the like. I like the british bands and the dance music.

For Christian music, the only one I listen to is Amy Grant. I've been listening to her since the 80's when she came out. Great music, great lyrics.

my word verification is lizwrrt. I think I'm changing my name :-)

Great list.

What got me through my adoption was Enya. Also Michael Crawford "on Eagle's Wings". Calmed me down enough that I could concentrate on work. ;-)

Many of my favorites right now are listed above in Debbie's post.

"Praise You in this Storm" by Casting Crowns got me through the loss of our first referrals.

I also love "Orphans of God" by Avalon, "My Jesus" by Todd Agnew, "How Great Is Our God" by Chris Tomlin, and "Held" by Natalie Grant.

Newsboys' Adoration and Devotion are awesome CDS. My hubby's favorite band is Third Day. I am also enjoying going back to my past with Bart Millard's (from Mercy Me)new CD, "Hymned". It jazzes up all of the old hymns I used to sing as a child. It's something different and refreshing.

I love all CDs by the Counting Crows!!! I also am listening to Mike Doughty's CD "Haughty Melodic" these days like a mental patient, particularly a song called "Your misfortune". He's definitely not a christian artist, but this song is as if God is singing it:

When your faith in life is gone
Come and speak to me
When you’re down and all messed up
Seek my sympathy

I'm also a Third Day fan.

I like The Killers, but I've never been able to get into Coldplay for some reason.
