I'm just really big into mellow rock, Coldplay especially. Their X&Y album knocks me off my feet every time I hear it, over and over again. :nuts:

I've turned into my mother! When I was growing up, my mother once said that she lived in a house where she was constantly 'assaulted' by the music choices of my father and my sister and I that, when she had the chance to choose her own music, she chose silence. I just could not understand that AT ALL (as a fifteen year old).

Now, it makes perfect sense!

Oh my what a question. I drive my daughter to school everyday. In the morning its Z100...a crazy radio station. In the afternoon its R&B. Kids should keep their hands off of the radio station I too sound like my mom.:lol:

Vlad - I've a Coldplay fan since the very beginning, and have seen them in concert 6 times! And I'm going to see them again in March. It's interesting to see their progression - the first tour was very stripped down and bare in terms of theatrics, but the last time I saw them (in September for the X&Y album), it was very much a "light" show. Anyway, I love them! What other bands do you like, since you like "mellow rock"?

Eh, Counting Crows have a few amazing tracks, other than that it's pretty random. I used to be a metal head, but with increasing age I kinda moved to the softer side of things. Any sugggestions from you?

Megs and I have tickets for the Cleveland Coldplay show in March as well, but we're not sure if we'll be able to attend yet. Shucks, they're floor tickets, too... what a shame. :cry:

i'm really in to indie rock - bright eyes, neutral milk hotel, plus i've been listening to some less credible stuff i listened to in high school recently. saosin (one particular acoustic song), copeland, thursday, blood brothers, etc. i like a whole range of stuff.

plus a local radio station, 95.5, that plays nothing but commercial rap...it's my guilty pleasure, and how i adore it!

The variety on my ipod would scare anyone! I have heavy metal (AC/DC, Metallica), large amount of Alternative/Modern Rock (loving Howie Day & Coldplay as well), modern Christian pop/rock, classical, ver limited country (I'm not a big fan), and, Pink Floyd. I hafta say that Pink Floyd is my fave band in the world (and no, I'm not smoking a thing..lol)

Lol...the age comment....come on, we all know that you're not "old". Anyway, I hope that you and Megs make it to the Coldplay concert, especially because you have floor tickets.

Here are a couple of "similar" bands/singers you might like: Athlete, Embrace, Damien Rice, Keane, Snow Patrol, James Blunt (he's kind of the "IT" person right now since he was on SNL a few weeks ago), Rilo Kiley (I love them!). They are all pretty mellow, but very good.
