My Favorite Music

I've put together a sorted list of my favorite music.

It was rather difficult to sort, since i was dealing with a number of different metrics, such as artists with one song i really love, as opposed to artists with an overall sound I simply enjoy. Also, my familiarity with the different groups was important, and any specific history I might have with them. Additionally, there is an overarching genre-sort going on at the same time, so while in general the higher an artist is on the list, the more I like it, there are subsections of the list in which some groups are pulled together by the force of similarity. Just becasue of the sheer number of artists involved, it is almost impossible to do a one-to-one comparison--that is to say, while I stand by the order I put the artists in, it is possible to find an artist high on the list and an artist low on the list that I feel nearly the same about. I should say that just because a group is near the bottom of the list does not mean that i DISLIKE it. This is a list of music I like, scaled from 'intense love' to 'marginal interest'.

Lastly, I suspect there are artists I have forgotten or overlooked. Since completing the list five minutes ago I have already thought of three. Feel free to comment if there is music out hre you feel warrents being on my list!
