Recommendations?

I'm looking for some new music recommendations from those with similar music tastes. Moz ranks #1 on my list, followed by The Beautiful South, Depeche Mode, Llloyd Cole, etc.

Quality lyrics keep my attention over anything else. Please share any of your favorites.

Thanks,

Divine Comedy have good lyrics, Suede particularly good first 3 albums,Pulp very good lyrics (if a bit perverted sometimes ), The Kinks (Village Geen, Arthur), Elvis Costello (occasionally too clever by half),Gene ,the late Kirsty MacColl,R.E.M.,

it's a start anyway!

I am a huge R.E.M. fan so that would be my top recommendation. I think Michael Stipe can write some amazingly beautiful lyrics at times. Despite Around The Sun not getting much credit, as it was a relative slowly paced album, I believe that some of his best lyrics were upon it.

I guess U2 would be another choice. Although I sometimes feel that Bono can write a good pop song but he sometimes lack depth and meaning.
