    Jan 16 2009, 23h06

    1. What's your favorite song by 14?

    Because of the stupid arcade fire tags I'll go for 15, which should be at 14 (if that make sense). To be honest, I'm a bit sick of them, know too many people that worship them in a ridiculous way. But to answer the question, probably Fascination Street.

    2. How did you get into 20?

    Free CD that came with the List in 2004 (I think) with bands playing at T in the Park that year. Was totally obsessed with Franz back then, and they'd mentioned them in interviews.

    3. Who is your favorite member in 8?

    Bright Eyes? Hard one,but I might have to go for Conor Oberst. I shouldn't be arcy to a silent quiz master should I?

    4. Whats your favorite lyric bit by 29?
    "And I kissed you in a style Clark Gable would have admired, I thought it classic" - I like a lot of Postal service lyrics though.

    5. Have you ever seen 22 live?
    Wir sind Helden? They only really play in Europe I guess.
    Willy Mason - yeah, twice

    6. What's your favorite album from 10?

    The Smiths - Um, probably The Queen is Dead.

    7. Do you own any merchandise from 3?
    Sigur Rós - too much, T-shirt, DVDs, and a ridiculously expensive poster. I have managed to resist the lmtd edition boxsets out there though...

    8. What is a good memory you have of 7?
    Emma and I always singing their songs? Arranging Step Into My Office for a school concert.

    9. Is there a member of the same age as you in 2?
    Arcade Fire, no way.

    10. When did you first get into 1?
    My friend Anne when she lived in britain (so...3 years ago?), she got me into the music and the 2 films (goodbye lenin and amelie) at the same time.

    11. Who likes 4 along with you?
    Arab Strap? hahaha, noone. Wait, I suppose Sam and Adam.

    12. Which song did you first hear from 15?
    Sonic Youth? Jesus...I had Jams run free on my computer for ages, but it was probably their coer of superstar or teenage riot that got my attention.

    13. What song made you fall in love with 5?
    Radiohead - There There or 2+2=5. I was pretty late getting into them, and I still love Hail To The Thief to this day.

    14. Which song do you not like by 18?
    Broken Records - well, I'm not a huge fan of their slow stuff, so probably Lies.

    15. Why do you like 14's songs?
    I don't anymore, moany git. Haha.

    16. Where did you first hear 6?
    My Bloody Valentine - well, it was more a case of my catching up with those bands that I should have heard of, so in my first flat.

    17. How long was 19 a singer before you liked them?
    Union of Knives - I got into them pretty early on, heard Evil Has Never on a cottish new music show

    18. Does 13 have a song that gives you a bad memory?
    Malcolm Middleton - yeah, I was at one of his gigs when I got some bad news, so his biggest hit to date is not a regular track anymore...

    19. When did you get into 17?
    Frank Turner - Well, I was into his earlier band before he became a singer songwriter, so I few years beforehand?

    20. How long have you been into 11?
    Regina Spektor - a couple of years, I'd say.

    21. If 9 had a concert 300 miles away, would you drive there to see them?
    Animal Collective - haha, I just saw them in my uni union, so it seems like a silly question. But saying that, I'm considering going to see them in London so the answer is FUCK AYE I WOULD.

    22. How many CDs do you own of 12?
    Patrick Wolf - Uh, 3 albums and a single or 2 I think. Not sure about the singles because I would have got 'em street teaming.

    23. Does 21 have a song that makes you cry?
    Biffy Clyro - when I first heard Joy. Discovery. Invention. live, it did. Back when they were good.

    24. Does 27 have a song that makes you happy?
    Devendra Banhart - Quédate Luna makes me want to do some Latin dancing, and a lot of his tracks make me smile, like Chinese Children

    25. Does 23 have a song that makes you smile?
    Man, the number's are totally effed now. Björk? It's oh so quiet. How can you NOT smile?!

    26. What's the last song you've listened to from 28?
    This should be Serge Gainsbourg - so probably Bonnie andClyde or Comic Strip

    Andrew Bird - Fake Palindromes and A Nervous Tic Motion, definately

    28. What is a song from 50 that you've only listened to once?
    I have 4 47s and no 50s so here's em all -
    Damien Rice - probably heard them all more than once except that odd one he played live
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs - probably, I prefer their singles to albums
    Jeff Cole - only has the one song, so no
    Clash - It's a possibility. They've got a lot of 'em.
    Final Fantasy - Probably.

    29. Is there a song you are sick of hearing by 24?
    Björk - uh...I can't listen to a huge amount of her in one sitting I have to admit. Probably something off Selmasongs, because I hated Dancer in the Dark.

    Their live show, but definately Hunted By a Freak

    31. What is your favorite single by 25?
    Idelwild - You held the World in your arms. Definately. Hell, I'm gonna listen to it right now.

    32. If 49 hated you, what would you do?
    Again, I have no 49. I probably couldn't be bothered, as I don't see any of them on a regular basis...

    33. What would you say if 42 or one of the members from 42 asked you out?
    Franz Ferdinand? Probably be shell shocked. If it wasn't for their wives, I so would.

    34. Would you care if 41 had a boyfriend/girlfriend?
    Fleet Foxes? I'd like them all the same.

    Just Picareque (Decemberists)

    39. Is there a song from 38 that makes you mad?
    Bon Iver or France Gall? France Gall makes me sing like a loopy person. Can't say Bon Iver does the same though.

    40. Which member from 31 do you want to see go solo? If 31 is only one artist, what would you do if they joined a group?
    Joy Division - haha basically, this question is asking for my opinion on New Order :p

    41. What does your favorite song from 48 remind you of?
    I'll go for Jeff Cole, because that's the only one that is really significant. It just makes me think of people I miss and just wonder about everything. Where's the Real Sky is my pseudonym for a lot of things too.

    42. Did you hate 43 at first?
    Sufjan Stevens? No, I absolutely adored Casmir Pulaski Day.

    43. Does your best friend also listen to 33?
    múm - don't think she's heard them. Don't see her being a huge fan of either.

    44. Do you think your parents would like 37?

    Ólafur Arnalds, even if he looks pretty moody.

    49. Do you know anyone that hates 39?
    Out of the 3 potential 39s, no. Though I know a lot of people don't like Mogwai.
