Nicely put onemanarmy! and that's an oxymoron indeed :)

What about this: Join me in Death - HIM
No, not that.

HIM are hilariously awful. Their song and album titles read like entries in a 14-year-old's diary, like the cheesiest, most awful attempts at "goth" ever.

Greatest Lovesongs vol. 666:
"Your Sweet 666"
"It's All Tears (Drown In This Love)"
"When Love And Death Embrace"

Razorblade Romance:

"Razorblade Kiss"
"Death Is In Love With Us"

Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights:
"Heartache Every Moment"

Love Metal:
"Buried Alive By Love"
"Soul On Fire"

"Shatter Me With Hope"

If it weren't for Bam Margera having awful taste in music, nobody would have heard of them outside of Finland except for the occasional Sisters of Mercy fan who wanted to laugh at their song titles.

Meh, couldn't care less about song titles tbh... (although they are a bit childish from time to time yes)

The 2 cd's I own of them, Razorblade Romance and Dark light are ok in my book

Must be said, Fortress of tears is one gay song :p

Freaky stuff from Tom Ze playing in the shop at the moment.
The music played in heaven is surely Brazilian.

Os Mustantes do it for me. Bat Macumba makes this white boy's derriere wiggle.

I had the good luck to see Caetano Veloso a few years back. His performance nearly brought me to tears; it was so beautiful.

Really folks, if you don't check out what's happening in Brazil you're missing out. Whether your taste is metal or classical, their contribution to the sound of humanity is astoundingly beautiful.
"A Minha Menina" will continue to be the Brazilian floorfiller par excellence for years to come.

The first Gilberto Gil album has Os Mutantes as his backing band. The results are phenomenal as you might expect. There's a great world of discovery beyond the tropicalistas too, from the 70s sounds of Secos e Molhados or Novos Baianos to the 80s weirdness of Agentss and Fellini.

Cure better than DM. Say you joke!;):eek::D Robert Smith is just so whiny!

How about Asteroids Galaxy Tour?
Of course, Dave Gahan has a better voice.

Are you asking if the Asteroids singer has a whiny voice? If so, she has. Quite fun music, but not something I'd specifically listen to.

A couple of folky seasonal songs.
Karine Pollwart - Merry Christmas Everybody (yes that one, but a radical reworking and as Noddy Holder says IT'S CHRISTMAAAAAS)

Steeleye Span - Gaudete

Seasonal folk songs give me a feeling of seasonal coldness and sparseness, together with a warmth from the feeling of culture handed down from generation to generation.
