    1. How did you get into 30?

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
    Radiohead - Surprisingly enough I think it wasn't Creep, but probably the video of Karma Police on MTV (back in the day when they still played music).

    Feist - I don't listen to lyrics that much, but I really love the song Inside and Out
