Who would form your HOLY TRINITY of music?
 
So, I got to thinking of narrowing down my favorite singers and bands to form what I have been calling my Holy Trinity of music, you know, a stock answer when the question "What type of music do you like" or "Who is your favorite singer" comes up. I've narrowed it down into catagories and then over all (so, you know, not like this is REALLY narrowing down or anything):

FEMALE SINGER/S
1) Tori Amos
2) Joni Mitchell
3) Indigo Girls

MALE SINGER
1) Bob Dylan
2) Tom Waits
3) Bruce Springsteen

BAND
1) Queen
2) The Beatles
3) The Smiths

OVERALL
1) Bob Dylan
2) Queen
3) Bruce Springsteen

Man, that was tough!
