...Mkay... ipod, ipod, where's m' ipod...AH!

Anton Karas (mostly music from The Third Man)
Barry White
The Beatles
Chef of course
The Doors (although I don't know why)
Ennio Morricone
Hooverphonic (early stuff)
Issac Hayes
Jimi
Los Indios Tabajaras
Roy Orbison
Sorta
21, 24, and The Mighty Monarch

That's about it. Well, those are the ones I know about.

Actually, there may be more. I just realized I have some stuff in there that didn't show up in "Artists".

WAY too much of it but less than I'd expect. Probably more than I know of. Most of the tracks I listen to on Classic FM are made by dead guys (and some dead girls) but they arn't singers, so technically I'm not listening to stuff made by dead singers on that chanel. The Beetles songs are sung by a 3/5 dead singer. Issac Hayes in the early SP seasons is sadly a gonner now. Can't believe no one's mentioned Marc Bolan, who was eaten by viscious T-rexes in the early 70's. Queen was decapitated when Freddie died, so that's basically sung by a 90% dead band. Meatloaf should've died years ago but somehow mannaged to support his heart to today so I can't add him. Good 'ol Roy Orbison's sad little life ended way too early but he probably wouldn't still be around today even if he'd lived.
