I can sympathize with your predicament. Like you, I like a little greater variety of music than just tropical/ tiki music.
There are lots of blogs out there that have lots of excellent lounge music available for downloading if you are interested. I've not really ran across one that has a forum regarding lounge music. Perhaps it's time to start one. . . any volunteers?
