My musical taste changes so much so what I'm in the mood for does too but I'd probably take Tom Waits over anything else if I had to choose just one. Ask me again in a year and I might say The Blue Nile, or Aphex Twin, or Nick Cave (and so on and so on).

Tom Waits is great; I own all of his albums. I've been getting into Nick Cave's stuff more and more recently.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, with the caveat that it also include The Birthday Party (Nick's former band) and Grinderman (his current side project). I've also got mad fondness for Bauhaus (and all attendant side projects), The Fall, Swans, and Joy Division. That's my top five; can't narrow it down any more.
Then The Beatles, Hendrix, Billy Joel, Elton John, Queen, Dave Matthews
Matchbox 20 and Fleetwood Mac (guilty pleasure) Flight of the Conchords (hey humor in music is still music), The Who, The Eagles, Beastie Boys, Offspring, Peter Gabriel, OK Go,The Stones and Seamus Keenedy.
I also like Darius Rucker's country career as well as his Hootie years
And I am a fan of motown and funk...Parliament, Commodores, 4 tops, temptations and Stevie Wonder Kennedy sings Scottish/Irish folk songs and is a funny dude (find a song called Old mcdonalds deformed farm)

Easy... The Beatles
I was thinking about this a while back. Whenever I think that life stinks, and screw it, and what's the point... blah, blah, blah. I have to stop and tell myself to shut up...
"Dude, you grew up with the Beatles!"
Of all the great books and movies and sports and MST3K and art I've enjoyed in my life, it all circles back to the Beatles. Apart from family, they are the pinnacle, the prime wonderful, supreme, delightful thing that makes me so glad I'm alive in this point and time.
I apologize for sounding so melodramatic, but that's what the Beatles meant to me. Not just my favorite band, but my favorite anything.
"I'm not a man who approves of definitions. Labels belong on luggage as far as I'm concerned; they don't mean anything in art" - Fellini
^ Big Beatle fan here too and enjoyed reading your comments. And it got me to thinking of perhaps not as well known songs they recorded that nevertheless are as good as anyone elses prime accomplishments. Yes It Is Here There and Everywhere Savoy Truffle Misery Not A Second Time Baby It's You Only A Northern Song to name just a few. What are some of yours?
