    Can't say I have.

    3. What album is #26 from?
    Watch Out!

    One of a kind, I can't fault them at all.

    5. Is #19 one of your favorite songs?
    Ever? No. by Underoath? Yes.

    6. Who does #38 remind you of?
    Watching them on that Island Records contract competition on MTV2.

    7. Does #20 have better lyrics or music?
    I tend to listen to The Strokes more for the music (which is great) than the lyrics (which are average).

    Holly is the only one that comes to mind.

    9. Is #33 from a movie soundtrack?
    Nah.

    10. Is #18 overplayed on the radio?
    I severely doubt it's EVER played on the radio.

    11. What does #21 remind you of?
    Nothing in particular, it just makes me think. I've been listening to it for a while now though, so it makes me think of when I first heard it a few years back.

    12. Which song do you prefer, #5 or #22?
    Definitely #5.

    13. What album is #17 from?
    It's not, it's a year mix.

    I think I got it from MP3.com back in high-school. Either that or my mate Andy made me listen to it.

    16. What genre is #8?
    Don't get me started on genres...

    17. Do any of your friends like #14?
    I have no idea, I have a few friends who like Death Cab but I don't know who likes the older stuff and if any of them like this song specifically.

    18. What color does #4 remind you of?
    White for some reason?

    19. Have you ever blasted #11 on your stereo?
    It's not really a "blasting" sort of song.

    Post-rocky indie? I don't really care.

    21. Can you play #13 on any instrument?
    Not off the top of my head, but I think I looked up a tab for it once and strummed along with the chords.

    22. What is your favorite line from #30?
    "Last in line for you, I know" or "I'll never light your eyes up like they should".

    23. What is your favorite lyric from #23?
    The chorus.

    24. Would you recommend #24 to your friends?
    Of course, it's actually my favourite song by them.

    25. Is #2 a good song to dance to?
    I imagine so, in the right "circumstances".

    26. Do you ever hear #16 on the radio?
    Never.

    27. Is #32 more of a “nighttime” or “daytime” song?
    Day time, in fact morning song I would say... a real get up and go sort of song.

    28. Does #36 have any special meaning to you?
    Not really... I like it a lot, but it's not "special".

    29. Do any of your friends like #31?
    There's only two people who I actually know like The Appleseed Cast, Duce and Cat. So probably them.

    30. Is #25 a fast or slow song?
    Pretty slow.

    31. Is #35 a happy or sad song?
    Neither really, I'd describe it more as introspective... it just amplifies whatever mood I'm in, I find.

    32. What is one of your favorite lyrics from #9?
    "The ones we need don't know we're there"... or "Let me sleep some more" (haha).

    33. Is #34 better to listen to alone or with friends?
    I doubt my friends would like this one too much. Not the ones I have round regularly anyway.

    34. When did you first hear #27?
    I think I saw it on Scuzz a year or two ago.

    35. Name 3 other songs by the artist who did #29?
    Lover I Don't Have to Love, First Day of My Life, Lua.

    36. Do you know all the words to #6?
    Some, not all.

    37. Does #28 have better lyrics or music?
    The lyrics are a bit corny, the music's good though.

    38. What album is #10 from?
    Hours.
