Thread Name: The Pagan Alternative. What's the music?
Subject: RE: The Pagan Alternative. What's the music?
Mbo: oh yes i forgot Evil Woman! and of course Rhiannon, and the others mentioned...there are a number of things by various progressive and art rock bands that people consider very pagan in sound if not intent, like the groups Renasissance, Klaatu, Gentle Giant, even Jefferson Airplane, and of course the Incredible String Band...also various songs by Kate Bush, Dead Can Dance, David Sylvian, etc.
BTW a new movie coming out with a great soundtrack (70s classics and score by the contemporary group Air) is The Virgin Suicides; one very memorable scene in which "Strange Magic" is played at a homecoming dance...really great film too!!!
