Check this out -- a friend of mine got me hooked on this:

Put in the name of a band you like, and it'll show you what other people who like that band listen to.

You can download a plug-in for your favourite media player that spits what you listen to into a big-ass database. They crunch the data and recommend new artists based on what you listen to -- it's pretty darn cool. I've found a *lot* of cool new stuff this way.

I swear this isn't spam; I'm just spreading the gospel. ;)
Try: Keane, Dido, Maroon 5, Thievery Corporation, Five for Fighting, Peter Cincotti, Damien Rice, Vintage Chill, Jem, Rufus Wainwright (sp?), Fisher, Killerz, Franz Ferdinand, Diana Krall, Ani DiFranco, Aimee Mann, Pj Harvey, Depeche Mode, Morcheeba, Ben Folds, Eva Cassidy, Rachael Yamagata, Paul Oakenfold, Crystal method.
mmm...going on from your listing of frank sinatra and ray charles...

sarah vaughan, coleman hawkins, ben webster, peggy lee, nina simone, johnny hartman, john coltrane, etta james, anita o'day, astrud gilberto, stan getz, antonio carlos jobim, dusty springfield, shirley bassey, dinah washington...

and some other favorites of mine:

gotan project, bebel gilberto, m.ward, the flaming lips, cafe tacuba, the shins, everything but the girl, the arcade fire, de-phazz, son house, kevin o'donnell's quality six, eliane elias, portishead, dimitri from paris, astor piazzolla, smoke city, frou frou, royksopp, alicia keys, ted leo + pharmacists, massive attack, death cab for cutie, pink martini, the pharcyde, the roots, jill scott...etc.

If you like rock music, try Linkin Park, Finch, Coheed and Cambria, Sugarcult, Breaking Point, Seether, System of a Down, Chevelle, and Emery. Those are just a few I can think of right now. Hope this helps!
As usual, I always have to plug my man Johnny Lang. :D And then there's my recently discovered new love.. Michael Buble :wub: On his new album, he does a great remake of Nina Simone's Feelin Good. That link will play a few of the songs on his new album but he also does great on a lot of the classics. ;)
check out a band called "Seven Nations" they are celtic rock music...excellent!!
bagpipes, fiddle, guitar and great vocals :D I LOVE THEM and hey...they are not too bad to look at either!
I mostly listen to Beck, Cake, Gorillaz, Chemical Brothers, Crystal Method, The Wiseguys, Basement Jaxx, and Moby.
