I love music. All kinds of music (depends on my mood/ even depends on the time of year Wink), can be trance, classic, popular or chart musics etc.

Though classic rock has always been my favourite type of music.
The Who, the Doors, REM etc. (arrow classic rock!)

bought a dvd of the Who last saturday! amazing Wink

I love every type of music. Except the not so hard rock like grunge was in the 90s (like Nirvana, Pearl Jam,...) and punk... ugh.
To give an exact list would be too much but I will highlight:

Electronic music: Jarre (obviously), Air, Daft Punk, Mirwais (produced Madonna's latest 2 albums), Vive La Fete and many more. Kraftwerk, Vangelis (although his latest works are more classical avant-gardistic, nothing wrong with that), YMO and when I'm in a good mood even Klaus Schulze!
World Music: Delerium (and side projects like Conjure One), Enigma, Deep Forest, Peter Gabriel, also many more (Oliver Shanti comes to mind)
Pop: 80s pop rulez! New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Propaganda, FGTH, etc, etc. Trevor Horn is one of the best producers (and still is: T.A.T.U. and Seal are produced by Trev). Modern stuff like Chemical Brothers and Orbital.
Rock: Varying from Mike Oldfield to Rammstein (great concert I saw), Metallica, Iron Maiden, Marillion, Alan Parsons, and also many more.
And there's Hans Zimmer and his mediaventures team (HG Williams, Klaus Badelt, etc), I saw him in Gent, 3 years ago with orchestra. Impressive. He (and the others at MV) know how to use the bombastic sounds. And that's good.

Well, that's some selected highlights from my collection.

Vive La Fete.

No, I've recently discovered Vive La Fete (one or two songs), but it sounds cool.

it sure does. Smile

'Vitamin' on the latest Kraftwerk (Tour de France) is quite retro. I like. (but I don't buy Tongue)

I have two Vive la Fête records (Attaque surprise and Nuit blanche). I think you'll like the latter the most.

(did I already say I work in a record store? Tongue)

Working in a record store is one of the things I would do too, but I chose the cinema, which is cool too!

Anyway, yes, Kraftwerk's Tour de France album is a bit daft, I prefer Man Machine and Computer World (who doesn't Smile ). But so did the Expo 2000 single (brr).

Check out Mirwais' album Production. It's brilliant if you like Vive La Fete. And maybe some Les Rythms Digitales (retro 80s) and Ladytron.
