    Two for me: Squeeze and Sloan. Every couple years or so I go down a wormhole where I only listen to each of them for a week and then don't revisit them for years. Pure pop brilliance from both.

    ZZ Top, Tears for Fears, Blondie, Black Sabbath, Blues Pills, Depeche Mode... have strangely been through moods for all of these other than BS lately. But I'll go quite a while between listens to their stuff, and always regret not playing them more.

    Allan Parsons. Truth be told, anything I really love doesn't collect dust.

    John Prine and Chris Rea fall into that category for me.. a few others but they're the big two.

    Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton, Eric Clapton, The Who, Blondie, John Prine, The B-52s, then most of all... Tom Petty. I forget that I have nearly every album he's made since the late 70s in various formats.

    And as a side note, The Who were the first LP I ever listened to.

    Loved them through college. Absolutely loved them. Moved on for 25 years and rarely listened to them at all. Started getting back into them in the past year or so. Their late 80s/ early 90s work is better than I remember.

    Except the rap in Roll the Bones. That's still terrible.

    Easily Linda Ronstadt and Maria Muldaur. I revisit fairly regularly, but each time I'm taken aback by how good I think it is.

    I have to generally take a break from an artist to really appreciate their music (I get burnt out otherwise).
    The more I've listened to an artist all the time, the longer the break is needed til I can love their music again.

    And sometimes the obsessions with a certain artist or artists make me forget about others that I've really loved as well.

    Mark Knopfler's soundtrack work and Nanci Griffith.

    I've gone years without playing either of them but when I do -- boy, do I remember!

    Yesterday for my walk-it was the Kinks Misfits on my CD player...and I thought "God I love the Kinks. Today it was REM's Fables of the Reconstruction."

    Not that I forget them, but sometimes just don't play them as much as I should.

    Linda Ronstadt for me as well - I always rediscover deep cuts on the classics but lately I've been fascinated with her underrated late 80s/90s rock albums. I had forgotten how great her powerful voice sounded paired with covers of Paul Carrack, John Hiatt, Tom Petty and Dylan

    BryanW Likes his pop sunny.

    When you've been collecting music for as long as I have, this urge can strike you at any time - and for any of countless artists. Today, I had a fragment of melody in mind that eventually reminded me of Mariko Takahashi. It has been a while, but I am listening now, and it is wonderful. I'm glad that I have loads of music just a few clicks away.
