I must be getting old...

I just checked out my playlist recently and from my mp3 player and discovered that most of the songs that I listen to have departed from punk rock.

but anyways here's my take on them and maybe you can check them out...

Billy Bragg - Stephen William Bragg (born December 20, 1957), known as Billy Bragg, is an English musician renowned for his blend of folk, punk-rock, and protest music, and his poetic lyrics dealing with political as well as romantic themes.

Bright Eyes - Bright Eyes is an indie rock band consisting of
singer-songwriter/guitarist Conor Oberst, multi-instrumentalist/producer Mike Mogis, and a rotating lineup of collaborators drawn primarily from Omaha's indie music scene.

Dashboard Confessional - Dashboard Confessional is an American
acoustic/electric guitar driven indie rock band, led by singer-songwriter and guitarist Chris Carrabba from Boca Raton, Florida.

Elvis Costello -
Costello was an early participant in London's pub rock scene in the mid-1970s, and later became associated with the punk rock and new wave musical genres, before establishing himself as a unique and original voice in the 1980s. His output has been wildly diverse: One critic has written that "Costello, the pop encyclopedia, can reinvent the past in his own image"

Pedro The Lion - Pedro the Lion was an indie rock band from Seattle, Washington, and, for over a decade, the main creative outlet of singer/songwriter David Bazan. The band combined a biting wit with first person narrative to cover both politics and faith.

Rocky Votolato - While country-inspired singer-songwriters are never in short supply, Seattle's Rocky Votolato stands apart. After dedicating a grueling year and a half to writing and recording his Barsuk Records
debut, Makers , the twenty-eight-year-old father of two -- backed by little more than an acoustic guitar and the occasional harmonica -- has produced an album full of songs that reflect his gift for understatement.
