1.How did you get into 29? (Air)
I guess it was when Sexy Boy & Kelly Watch the Stars got a lot of airplay on MTV in the late 90's.

2. What's the first song you ever heard by 22? (The Radio Dept.)
Not entirely sure, but I vaguely remember seeing them live on a festival in Sweden in 2004, which is probably when I heard their music for the first time. (Mind you, it was at a boozy music festival after all, so it's all a bit of a blur really...)

3. What's your favorite lyric by 33? (José González)
Maybe these ones from Broken Arrow:
"Summerlove left this town
It was too cold to bathe and the leaves turned brown
The sun went down
And with it the love we found
That's the way things are sometimes
Most of the time"

4. How did you get into 49? (Björk)
Well, seeing that I'm Scandinavian she was a pretty big deal there with her debut album (called Debut). The first track I heard was Human Behaviour, but I didn't start listening to her stuff properly until the late 90's.

5. How many albums by 13 do you own? (MF DOOM)
Two (Operation Doomsday & MM Food).

6. What is your favorite song by 50? (M83)
Graveyard Girl.

7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad? (RJD2)
Not that I can think of, or maybe One Day.

8. What is your favorite song by 15? (El-P)
Tasmanian Pain Coaster is pure genius.

9. What is your favorite song by 5? (Sage Francis)
Sea Lion.

10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? (Alias)
Not really, I wouldn't exactly say Alias is famous for his feelgood-tracks. Maybe Dr.C by Alias & Tarsier.

11. What is the worst song by 40? (Coldplay)
Violet Hill no doubt. Can't stand it. I never understood how it could be released as a first album single.

12. What is your favorite song by 10? (Sia)
Breathe Me, followed by Death By Chocolate.

13. What is a good memory you have involving 30? (Sole)
I remember being on a road trip with my brother and he'd brought 'Selling Live Water' which had recently been released. I had never heard of Sole, but I loved what I heard.

14. What is your favorite song by 38? (CunninLynguists)
It's a tie between Seasons (Remix) and Don't Leave (When Winter Comes). The beat for the remix of seasons is amazing and fits the lyrcs perfectly.

15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy? (Murs)
The Night Before is nice. Bad Man! is a good party tune.

16. Is there a song by 25 that makes you sad? (Feist)
Yep. Let It Die, The Park & How My Heart Behaves. To name a few.

17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23? (Jean Grae)
Love Song.

18. What's your favorite lyric by 11? (Bat for Lashes)
From Good Love:
"In the night time we are found
Misty sorrow swoop unbound
Whisper you mean it, say you'll stay
Hold my heart till brighter days"

19. Who is a favorite member of 1? (Aesop Rock)
Ian Matthias Bavitz (aka Aesop Rock). Tricky one that.

20. Is there a song by 14 that makes you happy? (Why?)
Gemini (Birthday Song) and A Sky For Shoeing Horses Under both put a smile on my face.

21. What is a good memory involving 27? (Burial)
I listened a lot to Burial when I initially moved to London, so maybe that.

22. What is your favorite song by 16? (Regina Spektor)
Samson was the first song I heard by her, and I absolutely loved it. Still find it amazing. But she's done so many incredible tracks, other favourites are Ode To Divorce and Somedays.

23. What is the first song you ever heard by 47? (Radiohead)
Creep, back in the day. Not really feeling their recent stuff.

24. What is your favourite album by 18? (The Clash)
London Calling - one of the greatest albums ever made imo.

Accordion.

26. What is the first song you ever heard by 26? (Masta Ace)
Beautiful.

27. What is your favorite album by 3? (Death Cab for Cutie)
Plans. Even quality throughout, not one bad song on the entire album.

28. What is you favorite song by 2? (Sigur Rós)
Probably Með suð í eyrum or Saeglopur. A lot of good songs to choose from though.

29. What was the first song you ever heard by 32? (Boards of Canada)
Music Is Math was featured in a Swedish movie, and that's what made me start listening to them.

30. What is you favorite song by 8? (The Album Leaf)
We Need Help.

31. How many times have you seen 17 live? (Bon Iver)
None, but I'd love to. Hopefully within the next year.

32. Is there a song by 44 that makes you happy? (Lykke Li)
Everybody But Me (Christoffer Remix). The lyrics are depressing as anything, but it's still that instant party anthem.

33. How did you get into 12? (Madlib)
Through Jaylib's Champion Sound.

34. What is the worst song by 45? (Buck 65)
Kennedy Killed the Hat (which a lot of people seem to love)

None.

Goodbye. Great beat.

42. What is your favorite album by 41? (Zero 7)
Simple Things.

43. What is your favorite song by 24? (Azure Ray)
Rise. (In fact the song with the most plays in my entire library.)

44. What is a good memory you have involving 46? (Dosh)
I listened a lot to Wolves and Wishes when I went to Tokyo last year, and listening to that album still reminds me of the good times I spent there.

45. What is your favorite song by 35? (DJ Shadow)
Stem/Long Stem, hands down. Amazing track.

46. Is there a song by 9 that makes you happy? (The Streets)
I guess the easy answer here would be to mention any song off Everything Is Borrowed. But I'm not really a big fan of Mike Skinner going all happy-go-lucky, so I'd have to say Fit But You Know It and Don't Mug Yourself.

47. What is your favorite album by 4? (Atmosphere)
Lucy Ford, followed by God Loves Ugly.

48. Who is your favorite member of 37? (Bloc Party)
Don't have one.

The Funeral. Still reckon it's one of their best songs.

50. What is your favorite song by 20? (The Roots)
You Got Me. High school memories right there.
