There are some good suggestions here. Its hard to find new stuff that I don't already have. It looks like Gordon Lightfoot and Martin Orford are winners. I also got some Lynyrd Skynyrd. Another friend suggested The Muse. Plus, I downloaded some of the music from the film August Rush.
Please keep them coming; this is awesome.
I was also listening to REM today, which is a great throwback from the 80's/90's.
My favorite "Classical" piece (which I actually think is technically Romantic) is Mars from the Planets Suite by Holst, although Bach has some pretty good stuff. However, you want to talk about old... I have some medievil Organum and Motet choral arrangements which are pretty awesome from just about a millenium ago when 'music' as we know it was being invented.

Here's some (mostly) lesser known bands that I love and think are worth a listen:
Tsar (glam rock/power pop)
Silversun Pickups (nerdy garage rock...like a bar band version of Smashing Pumpkins)
The Black Keys (lo-fi garage band blues)
The Donnas (basically an all-girl Motley Crue...fun!)
Fountains Of Wayne (power pop with harmonies rivaling the Beach Boys)
Jellyfish (Beatlesque pop)
Kings of Leon (southern rock with a modern twist)
My Morning Jacket (the illegitimate child of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Pink Floyd...really)
Pink Spiders (punky glam rock)
I also have to mention my beloved White Stripes because I've never seen such a popular band that so many people have never heard of.

I like a little of everything myself. From John Mayer to blast beat, guttural screamy metal.
Heavy music will always hold a special place in my heart though.

Mozart was THAT GUY who was always trying to cram too many notes on a line!! Arg! I can see his virtuosity, but the overriding issue with him is the neuroticism. It just throws this heavy TARP of notes over everything. I'm like everyone else in that I like his "magic flute" stuff, but beyond that? He loses my interest quickly. Same thing with Beethoven -- he's like listening to an erratic heartbeat. I imagine his crazy-haired stone-deaf self pounding away on my brain like he did with his piano.
Sort of like Pat Methany and his deconstructed jazz. Yuck.eNFJ 4w3 sx/so 468 tritype
