I love Lydian, which would be my first instinct. Mixolydian is all over the place too.
I've done a FAWM song in Phrygian ("Fireflies" Niveous wrote lyrics for that).
So the glaring absent modes are Locrian and Dorian.
What do you want to hear? I'm leaning towards Locrian, it's a bit weirder sounding to me, therefore fun.
EDIT: I guess YYZ is in Locrian, that song is 2nd nature to me. What do you think? Dorian? You name the mode, I'll do it.
Well, Locrian tends to sound... um, ugly to me. YYZ is cool though. It's just harder to make it sound good. I like Dorian, it has that medieval sound to it. So, if you're asking me I'm leaning towards Dorian, but choose whatever you like. I'm intrigued by Lydian, too. Never wrote a modal composition myself up to now, but I'll certainly try.
EDIT: if you manage to do a cool song in Locrian though - kudos to you
