You can limit it to -10 if you wanna be that way.

I think my all time top 10, and my top 10 after the rules of this thread would have to be slightly different from each other. If it's all the music I can hear for the rest of my life, it would have to cover a fair bit of ground in terms of variation.

Dir En Grey

This is my first choice. They're my favorite band, but they're also very ecclectic and interesting. Hands down the most interesting metal act I've ever heard - by some distance, even. Now, some old-schoolers wouldn't even call them metal but... pfffft! Whatever...

The band also cover several bases in terms of expression and intensity. Plus there's an interesting sonic diversity to the band, great hooks, some weirdness, some freaky vocals... and more. This band has honestly had a pretty huge impact on me. Easily my biggest musical discovery of the last 10 years.

Tori Amos

A pretty necessary inclusion as well. It's a big and varied discography, and I connect very strongly to a lot of this material. Life wouldn't feel complete without her music.

Madredeus

I love their mix of Portugese fado and some more modern musical influences.
There's a good amount of ground covered by their discography and Teresa Salgueiro's voice is pure magic.

Waltari

Because they're so weird, fun, unique, ecclectic. I'd never have to be bored if I had their music around.


After these 4 picks it's a bit less obvious to me who I would simply have to include, so I don't know... maybe these?:


Suzanne Vega
I do have another singer/songwriter already, but Vega has a distinctly different style and some of the best lyrics in the genre. Sometimes her music hits me like nothing else can.

Kylie Minogue
I'd need some straight up pop music from time to time, so who else than Kylie?

Arkona
Unique sounding folk metal and a sea-deep discography.

Megadeth
There's no escaping the fact that this band means a lot to me. They've got 15 albums so far, so there's a lot to chew through as well. Seems like a solid choice.

Judie Tzuke
I haven't been into her music for very long, but it's a fairly substantial discography and there's just this feeling to her music that I'd hate to be without.

Depeche Mode
Big discography, most of it good, plus I have a lot of history with this band.


NOTE: Stam1na is a band I'd normally put in a top 10, but Waltari sort of covers their ground, and more, so for this particular type of list I'd have to prioritize some variation. Not sure Depeche Mode would have been in this list under different 'rules'.

I guess Kylie saves it a bit.

Not that I expect you to do your homework just for me, of course
