1970’s
Queen, Seven Seas of Rhye, Queen II, 1974
So for people who have no idea who Queen are here is a quick intro.
Queen are a British rock band that formed in London in 1970.
Their classic line-up was Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (lead guitar, vocals), Roger Taylor (drums, vocals), and John Deacon (bass guitar).
Hits like ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ were massive hits.
These guys made a great team of writers and musicians until Freddies death in 1991.
Queen were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.

Hip Hop
The Herbaliser, Mission Improbable, Very Mercenary, 1999
The Herbaliser is a jazz hiphop group formed by Jake Wherry and Ollie Teeba in London, England during the early 1990s.
This is from their 3rd studio album. This album should in my opioin be listen to from the beginning and all the way through.
This song features Jean Grae, formerly known as What? What?, who is an American hip hop recording artist from Brooklyn.

Folk

Mariee Sioux, Two Tongues, Faces in the Rocks, 2007
Mariee Sioux (born February 4, 1985) is an American folk singer-songwriter.
Mariee’s voice is beautiful, her song writing skill are very underestimated, her music is very mellow and well worth a listen.

1960’s

The Doors, Not to Touch The Earth, Waiting For The Sun, 1968
The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek,
guitarist Robby Krieger, and drummer John Densmore.
Because of Jim Morrisons songwriting, wild personality, performances, and the dramatic circumstances surrounding his life and death,
he is regarded by critics and fans as one of the most iconic and influential frontmen in rock music history.
“Not to Touch the Earth” stems from Jim Morrison’s poem, “Celebration of the Lizard” and is one of my favourite doors songs, in fact the whole album is well worth a listen.

Ambient House
The Orb, Delta MK II, Orblivion, 1997
The Orb are an English electronic music group known for spawning the genre of ambient house. Founded in 1988 by Alex Paterson and KLF member Jimmy Cauty,
the Orb began as ambient and dub DJs in London. Because of their trippy sound, the Orb developed a cult following among clubbers “coming down” from drug-induced highs.
Need I say anymore.

Electronic, Dance

Bentley Rhythm Ace, Theme From Gutbuster, 2000
Out of the two albums this second album did not fair as well as the first album however it still has some great songs.
These guys mixed funky beats with strange musical instruments to come up with some great tunes.
“Bentleys Gonna Sort You Out!” was probably the groups most popular song and comes from the 1st album in 1997.

Classical

Pachbell, Canon
Johann Pachelbel (baptised September 1, 1653 – buried March 9, 1706) was a German composer, organist,
and teacher who brought the south German organ tradition to its peak.
He composed a large body of sacred and secular music,
and his contributions to the development of the chorale prelude and fugue have earned him a place among the most important composers of the middle Baroque era.
Neither the date nor the circumstances of its composition are known, and the oldest surviving manuscript copy of the piece dates from the 19th century.

Alternative
Blind Melon, Holyman, from the album Blind Melon 1992
Blind Melon (Stylized as BLind MeLoN) is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California by two musicians from Mississippi and one from Indiana.
Unfortunately the lead singer and one of the founders of the band Richard Shannon Hoon died of a cocaine overdose in 1995. Another great loss to music.
