In my opinion I'd put England top of the tree followed by Holland and Germany (probably in that order). But then I'm into hardcore and techno mostly. Where would others say the best music comes from and what genre is it you are listening to?

Scotland, for Folk music, the Corries and rousing anthems.
Huddersfield and East London for Iron Maiden.
Sheffield for Def Leppard

well, it isnt sweden for sure, just a lot of euro-disco-crap music ...

england gets one of my votes, mostly for all nice underground music coming from there.

and israel, isn't it there where astral projection resides...

I think that Wales is a top place for music, from Male Voice Choirs, through relaxing Celtic music to the latest Manic Street Preachers, Stereophonics, Super Furry Animals and so on.

But currently, I'm listening to a lot of Gospel Music from churches whos names are longer than my arm, like the "New Testament Church of God in Christ Choir" - wow! Most churches in Wales are called things like "Bethel", "Beulah" or, like mine "Saron".

When I'm not listening to "Israel and New Breed" or "Scott Blackwell", it's usually the Blues Brothers or BB King.

I guess you have not been listening too much to Finnish music... :D
For those you like it, Darude and Bomfunk's MC are really good and who would have known that there are from Finland :)
What is wrong btw with Swedish music? ;)

Anybody remember the old Smirnoff add on billboards where a gorgeous looking woman was being towed on a waterski behind a whale?

The strap line was " They said anything could happen......."

Smirnoff weren't too happy when they found out 18 months later that the "girl" was actually a man (before sex change anyway)!
