that's a few anyway............... i'm kind of sifting through these particular artists and songs, seeing who and what i like, then making a "favorite playlist" of these artists for the ol' ipod.

feel free to comment and add some of your favorites or artists you would recommend. i love independent, singer/songwriter types. however, i have a WIDE range of musical tastes, so i'm pretty eclectic and interested in everything...
