1. Bowie, baby!
2. The Infrareds (surf guitar)
3. trance, like Junkie XL
4. the Clash (naturally) 5. Echo and the Bunnymen (constantly)
6. Siouxsie and the Banshees
I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND ECHO! Oh, I don't play it as much as the above, but I love ANYTHING by Richard Butler (Psychedelic Furs and Love Spit Love). There was once a huge obsession... but I won't go into that, though.
I - 75% N - 55% F - 55% P - 61%
There is love... in the red letters
There is truth... in the red letters

4. Stone Temple Pilots
5. Gotan Project/Thievery Corporation type music

And there's no way I'm going into individual songs...
