Last Sunday I couldn't sleep until 2am.. then had to wake at 6am to be at 7am at work.

Normally I'm more of a instrumental music fan. I mean everything Rock, metal, ska, punk, jazz, blues, latin sounds, oldies classics, clasical music, anything with musicians playing instruments, hence you can tell I'm not into pop music at all... and sometimes I also get a little exasperated with some friends who brag too much about electronic music and raves being so underground and awesome.

I DO understand there are some intellectual electronic music DJs out there... but, I still admire more anyone capable of transmitting their artsy feelings AND talent through an instrument by analog movements of their hands and body instead of just programed bits of 1s and 0s.

So don't get me wrong, I don't dislike electronic music, but I find it harder to admire something that attractive to me. So far my very poor knowledge genres of this music form limits to some Bjork, Portishead, Aphex Twin, Prodigy at the most.

Bah... this is just a midnight thought...

Engineered music straddles the line between analog and digital. Try to find a video of Imogen Heap performing on Letterman (i would, but I'm on a phone)

When I want to chill I will listen to electronic music/EBM/pop industrial. Like VNV Nation, And One, Wolfsheim, and Iris.

I just like how it is calming and relaxing. It's really good after just waking up.

That Imogen Heap girl sounds pretty amazing, and talented.
I think I've heard VNV nation somewhere..

Thanks for the recommendations.
