Sade !! Sultry and seductive. Very cosy music to boot !! Never met a fellow progger who is into her/them. 'Love Deluxe' is a 5 star album (not of Prog, of course...).

Wow !! I must admit I love the last 3 albums more, but Diamond Life, Promise and Stronger Than Pride are all consistently excellent. Her 2 live DVD's are top class. Always has a great band on stage. I love her as much as Dagmar Krause !!

To my surprise I found out most people around here hate Bob Dylan. I love him.

Many of the bands mentioned are generally liked by at least a fair number of proggies.  A lot of them have either been proposed for addition at one time or another (mostly to PR) or are already here:  Super Furry Animals, Dire Straits, Elton John, ELO, Nirvana, Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Leonard Cohen.
 
Major props to whoever called out Ofra Haza.
 
I'll add Concrete Blonde to the list, plus Gun Club for the punk subset.  Both are probably little known enough to escape distate from the general prog populace.
 
These are the two that top my chart of guilty pleasures though.  A big brass Bucky Beaver badge to whoever knows who they are:

I love some of his old hits - Like a Rolling Stone, Positively 4th Street, Subterranean Homesick Blues - but never bothered to listen to anything else...then my wife bought me his latest Tempest and I was really surprised how much I like it.
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

I have a few albums but IMO Desire is his best. It's a very special album with a very unique sound and of course Dylan's singing is beautiful.

Clem, thank you!! I recently finally bought a new car, and I had three or four CD's I always kept in the glovebox that I took out of the old one to put into the new one, and this was one I was forgetting! It was the double of the Gram Parsons solo albums! Wonderful, so thanks for the reminder! How I love `We'll Sweep Out The Ashes...'

The others were Norah Jones' `The Fall', Tift Merritt's `Bramble Rose', a 3 disc collection of 50's girly teen rockers and a rotating series of Ryan Adams country albums! Clearly my car likes a country mix once in a while!

I think another is one of my favorite pop/synth duos in Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart of the EURYTHMICS.

I like them, but don't love them. Say what you want, Annie Lennox sure can sing.
Over many years exploring the world of Dark-Gothic Progressive Rock/Metal has been an unbelievably great experience. Colour me Goth all over! I'm hooked.

Without Dylan RPI wouldn't exist, and it's not a coincidence if some of his songs have prog covers. The only thing I don't like of Dylan is the way he is used to reinterpret his songs on lives.

Could you explain how RPI 'would not exist.'...?

I think Octopus is referring to the ideological themes, not the music style.
