    What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
    I think Crystalline Green or Number 1. Wasn't overly fond of them at first but now my mind is blown by Goldfrapp.

    What is your favorite album of 2?
    Mezzanine! hands down.

    What is your favorite lyric that 5 has sung?
    Scott Farcas Takes It On The Chin:
    When I think of how things are right now it feels like,
    Yeah it all feels like some kind of circus show
    And how this town, it keeps you pinned down
    With the same song from years ago
    And y'know this place will chew you up and spit you out before you go
    And when they drag you
    Kicking and screaming
    From the scene you know
    It's time to leave
    When I think of this town
    Right now it's filled with
    Speed freaks and assholes
    And all kinks of creeps.

    How many times have you seen 4 live?
    Never. maybe one day.

    What is your favorite song by 7?
    Can't Stop!
    Also, I really dig The Power of Equality. Great start to a kick-ass album.

    What is a good memory you have involving the music of 10?
    Just talking with friends about how good they are.

    Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
    Tiny Vessels kinda breaks my heart. Transatlanticism (the song) also, because of that nostalgia to it.

    What is your favorite lyric that 2 has sung?
    From Unfinished Sympathy:
    "How can you have a day without a night?
    You're the book that I have opened
    And now I've got to know much more."
    From Safe From Harm:
    "Midnight ronkers, city slickers, gunmen and maniacs
    All will feature on the freakshow
    And I can't do nothing 'bout that, no
    But if you hurt what's mine
    I'll sure as hell retaliate."
    From Protection:
    "This girl I know needs some shelter
    She don't believe anyone can help her
    She's doing so much harm, doing so much damage
    But you don't want to get involved
    You tell her she can manage
    And you can't change the way she feels
    But you could put your arms around her."
    Also, I find all the words to Dissolved Girl very poignant.

    What is your favorite song by 9?
    Destiny remains topz, it's gorgeous. But Home affects me emotionally the most... Distractions & The Pageant of the Bizarre strike a personal chord as well. Oh, and the atmosphere of This World is really growing on me. Zero 7 is brilliant.

    How did you get into 3?
    Well a few years back, when "teh O.C." became popular, rave reviews for the band were everywhere. I ignored them for a while then gave it a chance, I'm glad I did cause their music is a lot more than the hype.

    What was the first song you heard by 1?
    Only back when With Teeth came out and the video was on MuchMusic. The song that stopped me in my tracks though was Hurt.

    What is your favorite song by 4?
    Fighter.

    How many time have you seen 9 live?
    zomg I wish.

    What is a good memory you have involving 2?
    Just listening to their music is always a good memory. Lol also, when I was teasing Aaron about his crappy music taste "It's because you love Panic At the Disco and Fall Out Boy that much!" and he's like "Well you love Massive Attack that much... wait... Massive Attack is actually good..."

    Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?
    Swing Life Away in a bittersweet way.

    What is your favorite album of 5?
    Don't own any of them. Not sure which one would appeal to me most either. I just like random songs from each of the albums.

    What is your favorite lyric that 3 has sung?
    The lyrics to Transatlanticism...
    the atlantic was born today and i'll tell you how:
    the clouds above opened up and let it out.
    I was standing on the surface of a perforated sphere
    when the water filled every hole.
    and thousands upon thousands made an ocean,
    making islands where no island should go, oh no...
    those people were overjoyed; they took to their boats.
    I thought it less like a lake and more like a moat.
    the rhythm of my footsteps crossing flood lands to your door have been silenced forever more.
    the distance is quite simply much too far for me to row
    it seems farther than ever before, oh no...
    I need you so much closer (x8)

    What is your favorite song of 1?
    Wish, Hurt, Just Like You Imagined, Head Like a Hole. almost the entirety of The Downward Spiral. yeah i can't choose.

    What is your favorite song of 10?
    Can't Catch Tomorrow (Good Shoes Won't Save You This Time) and Wake Up (Make A Move) are so energizing. Last Train Home and 4:AM Forever are haunting... Last Summer triggered so many memories first time I heard it. Kinda like musical deja vu, if that makes sense.

    How many times have you seen 8 live?
    Nope haha. could've though.

    What is your favorite album of 1?
    The Downward Spiral. amazed at the whole thing, probably only one or two tracks I don't love as much.

    What is a great memory you have considering 7?
    Guitar nights in China.

    What is your favorite cover by 6?
