: Alright here is the deal. I like my soft rock. Not like Celine Dion and stuff, but often from bands who don't do this kind of music regularily.

: If you could include anything in your response that you might think I would like that would be similar to the stuff below, but not obscure (I wanna be able to get my hands on it). Any help would be great.

You should check out Granddaddy. Well, first you should destroy all your Seven Mary Three CDs and apologize to Pearl Jam for ever supporting them in the first place (don't feel bad--I've already done the same) and THEN check out Granddaddy. Based on what you listed in your post, I think you'd dig their latest CD, "Sumday." Check out the song "Now It's On" if you want to see what they sound like.

Other suggestions:

--Black Label Society's "Queen of Sorrow" (similar to Alice in Chains' "Jar of Flies" EP, which'd be good, too)

--Dylan's "Moonlight" from Love and Theft or anything from Time out of Mind (his last two discs)

--Ryan Adams' "La Cienega Smiled"

--Brad's "Buttercup"

--Jet, "Look What You've Done"

--Chris Cornell's "Wave Goodbye"

--Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Californication"

--The Jayhawks' "Tailspin" or anything off Rainy Day Music

--Jeff Buckley's Grace, pretty much the entire disc

--G-n-R Lies, "You're Crazy"

--Soundtrack of Our Lives, "Broken Imaginary Time"

--Joe Strummer, "Redemption Song"

--Built to Spill, "Strange"

--Counting Crows' "Anna Begins." Did you have some Crows on your list? Can't recall, but I love this tune.

--Dave Matthews' entire "Live at Luther College" disc

--Dropkick Murphys' "World Full of Hate"

--Mark Lanegan, "One Way Street" and if that works for you, try Mondo Generator's "Four Corners" (also sung by Lanegan)

--The Lemonheads, "Into Your Arms"

--Monster Magnet's "Your Lies Become You"

--Motorhead's "One More Fucking Time" (no, really. Or else "1916," or maybe "I Don't Believe a Word"

--Flaming Lips' "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Part 1"

--Marilyn Manson, "The Speed of Pain"

--Mike Ness, "Big Iron"

--Morphine, "Honey White"

--Neil Finn's One All disc

--Nick Cave, "Wonderful Life"

--Ozzy Osbourne, "You Can't Kill Rock and Roll" (okay, so maybe not this one but it's a good ballad anyway)

--Queens of the Stone Age, "In the Fade"

--Anything by Keb Mo

--Anything from Beck's "Mutations" or the first half of "Sea Change"

--Radiohead, "Morning Bell"

--Rush, "Nobody's Hero"

--Soundgarden, "Zero Chance"

--The Rolling Stones' "Wild Horse" from Stripped

--Spiritualized, "The Straight and the Narrow"

--The Twilight Singers' "teenage Wristband"

--Spoon, most anything from Kill the Moonlight or Girls Can Tell

--Tito & Tarantula, "Back to the House"

--U2, "In a Little While" or "Red Hill Mining Town" (that one's from '87 so it might be too old for your criteria)

--Sublime, "Badfish"

--The White Stripes, "Truth Doesn't Make a Noise" or "We're Going to Be Friends"

--Yeah Yeah Yeahs, "Maps"

--Tenacious D, "Fuck Her Gently"
