    if rap/hip hop gets its own thread, the blues deserves one.

    Does anyone have Sirius satellite radio? BB King's Bluesville (Sirius 74) is awesome. Every once in a while they'll play multiple covers of a song. Most recently it was Smokestack Lightnin. I really liked the Yardbirds' version, but my favorite will probably always be Howlin Wolf's

    I use to listen to the Watercolors station on XM. That kind of smooth jazz, I can listen to. I can't do straight up blues. I'm a folk guy mostly.

    I can listen to alternative blues stuff, like modern singer-songwriters. Mostly the female lounge type singers. Namely Katie Melua, Nick Cave, and Melody Gardot.

    A really good family friend is friends with BB King, so I've met him a few times.
    I'm definitely a fan.

    Muddy Waters.
    Billie Holiday. <3
    Nick Cave.

    My Dad and I sometimes consider Eric Clapton blues-y.

    Unfortunately I've never given the Blues a chance. I've heard a few songs here and there that I enjoyed, but I never expanded my search when it comes to the Blues.

    If anyone could help me get started by posting a few songs that they enjoy it would be much appreciated.

    I love John William Coultrane's Soultrane record. He was actually the reason I chose to play the saxophone in high school. Simply, a brilliant composer. My favorite has to be "You Say You Care" Again, I'd love to put the video up, but I'm in class :D

    I was listening to my Robert Johnson album today. Every song he wrote is brilliant!
