Suggestions for a 14yr old rock fan pleeeease
 
Well, I'm a Spanish 15yr old and I want to listen to some stuff. Feel free to suggest anything. Also, sorry if my English isn't the best one. These are the bands/artists I usually listen to, I'd also like to know which of these do you like/dislike, just wanna meet people who love music! I've changed the list, so it goes like this (in a random order):
The Beatles
Pink Floyd
Led Zeppelin
Bee Gees (underrated by critics most of the time, unfortunately)
Queen
Cream
The Who
Eagles
Deep Purple
Electric Light Orchestra (Eldorado is such an amazing masterpiece)
ABBA
Neil Young (solo and with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young)
Elton John
Billy Joel
The Rolling Stones (okeeeeeyyy, I'll admit it they were a great great band)
Janis Joplin
The Kinks
Jeff Beck
Alan Parsons' Project
Supertramp
Genesis
Camel
Steely Dan
The Beach Boys
Sting (solo and with The Police)
The Doors
Cliff Richard
King Crimson
Soft Machine
Eric Clapton solo
Blind Faith
Kate Bush (can't believe I had never heard anything from her since I first googled Wuthering Heights about 3 months ago)
Rainbow
The Zombies
Barbra Streisand (she's a great singer and actress, c'mon, I always sing her songs when I'm home alone lol)
Donovan
Bert Jansch (this guy is amazing, seriously)
The Left Banke (Ok, they've only got one album but it's great, oh, and the singer was Spanish)
13th Floor Elevators (^see above)
Love (^see above, with the difference that Da Capo is a good album too)
Rod Stewart
David Bowie
Van Morrison
Traffic
Stevie Wonder
The Moody Blues
The Allman Brothers Band
Carole King (one of the best female songwriters along with Kate Bush, but they both have such different styles, I prefer Carole King, though)
Camel
Aretha Franklin
Emeron, Lake & Palmer
James Brown
B B King
Gary Moore
Jethro Tull
Neil Diamond
Yes
Santana
Moby Grape
CCR
Jefferson Airplane
Paul Rodgers (with Free & Bad Co.)
J J Cale
Fairport Convention
Velvet Underground (Femme Fatale is a masterpiece and the album it was included in is also great, period)
Joni Mitchell
Jimi Hendrix
Simon & Garfunkel
I'm sure I'm missing tons of artists I like, at this moment this would be my top list

OccultHawk 01-11-2021 01:22 PM

S.F. Sorrow by The Pretty Things

Eleanor Rigby 14 01-11-2021 01:32 PM

yass. Among the infinity of great things about the VU is their function as the ultimate gateway to punk and other awesome weirdness

OccultHawk 01-11-2021 02:10 PM

Let me know what you think of that one first if you would please

I’m sure some others will have some nice picks for you as well

You’re English is great btw

Since you fancy yourself some 60's hard rock, you'd probably enjoy Black Monk Time by The Monks. "Complication" is a good song to start with. Anti-war proto-punk feeds young minds.

The Batlord 01-11-2021 03:01 PM

Was gonna suggest that myself but I thought I'd given them enough.

I'm a Stones' fan. I like the fact they cover so much territory. Not only with music styles, but the mood of their songs. Some of their songs can be serious, sad, et cetera. It was those type of melancholy songs that drew to their music.
  • Ruby Tuesday
  • Sitting on a Fence
  • Backstreet Girl
  • Time Waits For No One
  • Wild Horses
  • Angie

edit: I thought this thread was in General Music

First of all, thank you very much for all the suggestions, I really like some of the bands you named, although i didn't write them on the list like: Yes, The Byrds, 10cc, ABBA and David Bowie. Of course, The Rolling Stones have some great songs, my favourite ones are: Angie, Wild horses, She's A Rainbow, Paint It Black and It's Only Rock N' Roll (But I like it). What I wanted to say is that, unlike the other artists I mentioned, I couldn't sit and listen to a whole Rolling Stones album. I think it's mainly because I've never liked Mick Jagger, his way of singing and specially his behaviour on stage or promo videos...The first thing I listened/saw from them was the music video of Start Me Up...It was a bit weird

Haven't heard much of him, but I love Heart OF Gold, it's a great tune. Also, Rockin' In The Free World is a good song. I'll listen more to his music. Thanks.

Thank you very much! I really like some of the musicians you mentioned, like David Bowie or Blind Faith (Eric Clapton is my favourite musician). I've listened to some stuff from Black Sabbath, and they seem cool, but a just a little bit too dark for me. From Blue Óyster Cult, I've only heard (Don't Fear) The Reaper, so I'll find more stuff from them. The only thing I know 'bout J.J. Cale is that he wrote Cocaine. The Doors are strange (never liked them a lot), but I love Break On Through (To The Other Side). Lynyrd Skynyrd are just too overplayed by Spanish radio stations, but they're good. Also, it was sad to find out that Since I've Been Loving You, my favourite Led Zeppelin song, was plagiarised from Never by Moby Grape...I guess it was Jimmy's common habit.
Anyway, I'll listen to the rest of the artists that are still unkown to me. Have a nice day.

I forgot to mention The Allman Brothers Band, I love them. Too sad Duane passed away that soon. What a good guitarist!

By the way, it is true that I'm a girl. I don't play the guitar (mainly becuase I don't have one), but I'd love to start learning one day.

Thanks! From The Zombies I've listened to She's Not There, and they seem to be a good band. As for The Velvet Underground, I've heard Lou Reed claiming that The Beatles were rubbish...But I still love The Who after finding out that Pete Townshend hated The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. So I'll listen to the Velvet Underground too.
P.S: Sorry, but what does "getting a rec from me" mean?

You can argue as much as you want! It's fun, I've never had a discussion about music before.

It's one song on the whole album. You don't need to be a jaded 30-something with a pickled liver to bop to "Ghost Rider".

I read the list, I figured the kid may enjoy it. No snobbiness was intended.

OccultHawk 01-11-2021 03:41 PM

It’s an unassailable record but it’s too far.

And Suicide is just come on / she’s 14

I think VU and The Stooges are better transition bands later.

There’s basically nothing punk or experimental on her current list.

Marie Monday 01-11-2021 04:06 PM

which is why I rec'd it. Expanding your horizons is fun. And the VU at their gentlest is accessible to everyone, I didn't choose Sunday Morning by accident.

Also like Charles said, you keep assuming the kid's a girl, why?

She double posted and I guess a mod deleted one. It said “14 year old girl” on the other

Honestly, I've never really understood punk music. For example, the Sex Pistols are really popular here but I don't get them. Ramones are a bit more accessible for my ears, but I don't like them much either. I don't know much about this type of music. As for other punk songs, I'm not sure if Lust For Life by Iggy Pop would be considered a punk song. If it is, then, great, because I love it. I thought Iggy was a cool guy untill I found a video of him and Yoko Ono "singing" together.

What he means is that, once people obtain a large library of music that may not be exactly mainstream, they can become a bit stuffy with the knowledge they have when compared to others. It's not necessarily a bad thing; you just have to be self aware ;)

The Ramones are the greatest rock band there will ever be. You will come to love punk, hip hop, jazz, classical and all of it. You’re only 14. We’ll take you from here to there. You have to appreciate how the pieces fit together and the beauty will become apparent. It takes time and a certain amount of work and humility. Don’t worry about music you don’t get yet. Don’t write it off. Just save your opinions for when your ready for it. It takes a certain amount of incremental steps. For 14 you’re doing great. You already have sophisticated music taste. Stick around and you’ll end up appreciating and loving everything.
