Top 10 Artists Survey - Pt. 2


Mai 20 2009, 22h37

I did this for the first time 3 years ago. #1 and #3 are still the same, but everything else has changed, or at least changed order. So here we go. I'm bored, if you can't tell.

1. Jason Mraz
2. The Decemberists
3. Death Cab for Cutie
4. The Good Life
5. Colin Meloy
6. Cloud Cult
7. Josh Ritter
8. Radiohead
9. Elvis Presley
10. Azure Ray

1. What was the first song you heard of 6?
Oh gosh, I can't remember that far back. I think it was "Happy Hippopotamus." It was at least something off that album.

2. What is your favourite album of 2?
They're my favorite band because I love all their albums sooo much. I think "Her Majesty" might be my favorite, but they're all incredible, and that changes daily, depending on my mood.

3. What is your favourite lyric that 5 has sung?
This is kind of unfair because Colin Meloy is the frontman for the Decemberists, so it's funny that they're both in my top 10. Ummm. Probably all of "Los Angeles, I'm Yours," though. Because, as an L.A. native, it really hits home.

4. What is your favourite song by 7?
Argh all these questions are so much harder this time around. Probably "Wings" but it could be any of a handful of songs that are always battling it out.

5. What is a good memory you have considering the music of 10?
Hm. I was really into Azure Ray when I was also in a very deep depression (so, up until I was 20, basically). So it's hard to pick out many positive memories. Which is weird because it's not like I get depressed listening to their music -- it's so gentle and beautiful. I guess when I saw Maria Taylor live, that was pretty fun.

6. Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
All of them. No band breaks my heart in a more painful way, because I have some really bad memories associated with their music. I would say most everything on "Transatlanticism" makes me pretty sad, if I let it.

7. What is your favourite lyric that 2 has sung?
Same as Question #3.

8. What is your favourite song by 9?
Oh I could definitely not pick a favorite Elvis song. That's...impossible. MAYBE "Love Me," but no. Impossible question.

9. How did you get into 3?
About four of my then-friends, spanning the country (one each in Washington, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Michigan), had all mentioned them in a favorable way in a relatively short amount of time, so I gave 'em a listen and fell in love. This was in the time after "Transatlanticism" but before "Plans," whenever that was.

10. What was the first song you heard by 1?
In 2002, I heard a live version of his later single "You & I Both" and it touched me in a huge way.

11. What is your favourite song by 4?
Finally, an easy one! "Beaten Path," for sure.

12. Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?
A lot of songs. All the older, slower ones. Like "Fake Plastic Trees," or "How to Disappear Completely," or "Exit Music."

13. What is your favourite album of 5?
Argh, three songs about Colin/Decemberists? Haha. I mean, Colin has some solo EPs and a solo live album, so. "Colin Meloy Sings Live," I guess. Not too many to pick from.

14. What is your favourite song of 1?
That live version of "You & I Both" that I first heard.

15. What is your favourite song of 10?
Yay, another easy one. "Displaced."
