Mar 25 2009, 5h02

1. What's your favorite song by 15?
Hmmm, Seventeen Years or Tropicana...I don't think I really can pick favorites for Ratatat, a lot of the songs sound alike so I can't really discern between tracks sometimes..

2. How did you get into 20?
The Avalanches
Read the Pitchfork (yeahhh..) review for Since I Left You, listened to Frontier Psychiatrist and I was hooooked.

3. Who is your favorite member in 1?
Animal Collective
Gotta say Noah Lennox...aka Panda Bear. His solo stuff is so good!

4. What’s your favorite lyric bit by 29?
Sufjan Stevens
Sufjan always has amazing lyrics, but I'm not a very lyrical person so I don't know what to choose..

5. Have you ever seen 22 live?
Beastie Boys
AHH I WISH! If I go to Bonnaroo then I'll be able to see them live!!! But honestly, it would've been so much better to see them in their prime - in the 80s and 90s.

6. What's your favorite album from 10?
Definitely Let It Die.

7. Do you own any merchandise from 3?
Broken Social Scene
Sadly, no. I saw them in January and I left the show with a t-shirt for Lymbyc System, their opener. Heh.

8. What is a good memory you have of 7?
Watching Paper Planes get HUGE and M.I.A & Diplo! So perfect, but it didn't last..

9. Is there a member of the same age as you in 2?
Girl Talk
Gregg Gillis is apparently 9 years older than me. Dang.

10. When did you first get into 8?
Patrick Wolf
Freshman year? Sophomore year? I remember listening to A Boy Like Me and not being able to find anything else by him, so I requested that Houston Public Library purchase Lycanthropy, but I don't think they ever did, heh.

11. Who likes 4 along with you?
M. Ward
Everybody should!

12. Which song did you first hear from 16?
I think it was Waters of Nazareth.

13. What song made you fall in love with 5?
I...honestly don't know. I'm gonna guess and say it was his M.I.A. stuff, the Piracy Funds Terrorism Vol. 1, and then I started to follow the baile funk craze...dang that feels so long ago!

14. Which song do you not like by 18?
Kid Cudi
Sky Might Fall... I really don't like that track. Everything off of his mixtape is so solid, but out comes this Kanye-produced (I believe it's a Kanye production?) track and it's just not up to par.

15. Why do you like 14's songs?
Beach House
It's gorgeous music. Seeing them live was AMAZING, btw. Their music makes me so dreamy and it's all just so lovely. Really. Beach House fucking rules.

16. Where did you first hear 6?
Andrew Bird
Like every other artist I like, I heard about them from Pitchfork. I got A Nervous Tic Motion of the Head to the Left off of Pitchfork and it was instant love, baby.

17. How long was 19 a singer before you liked them?
Lali Puna
For quite awhile! I didn't start listening to them till 2005 and they've been together since 1998. Dang.

18. Does 13 have a song that gives you a bad memory?
Daft Punk
Nope. DP = good memories!

19. When did you get into 17?
I think arond 2005? I decided to check 'em out after seeing those 3 damn exclamation marks around. I'm glad I did!

20. How long have you been into 9?
Only since 2007, when I Believe In You. Your Magic Is Real came out!

21. If 11 had a concert 300 miles away, would you drive there to see them?
Architecture in Helsinki
Ehhh, nah... I'm not THAT big of a fan. If the concert was free and I didn't have to be the driver, then I would probably say yes! Heh.

22. How many CDs do you own of 12?
Arcade Fire
3, their EP and their 2 albums.

23. Does 21 have a song that makes you cry?
Belle and Sebastian
Eh, nah. I'm not that into them, either. I just really dig We Are the Sleepyheads which does not make me cry at all.

25. Does 23 have a song that makes you smile?
Probably Swans (Life After Death), as the song builds up to its climax it's good enough to make me smile!

26. What's the last song you've listened to from 28?
of Montreal
According to my iTunes, it's Requiem for O.M.M.2. And it was a random play. I haven't really listened to them in awhile. I need to change that.

27. Is there a song by 32 that you've listened to more than 30 times?
The Russian Futurists
Apparently both A Telegram From the Future and Precious Metals both have 30 plays scrobbled!

28. Any song by 50 that you've only listened to once?
Jens Lekman
Doubt it.

29. Is there a song you are sick of hearing by 24?
Crystal Castles
Probably Alice Practice, gets annoying.

30. What song got you into 40?
The Knife
Heartbeats for sure. I still think it's their best.

31. What is your favorite single by 25?
Peter Bjorn and John
As overplayed as it is, it's definitely Young Folks.

32. If 49 hated you, what would you do?
Dr. Dog
I wouldn't care. I'll still like their music.

33. What would you say if 42 or one of the members from 42 asked you out?

34. Would you care if 41 had a boyfriend/girlfriend?
The Blow
I wouldn't care at all.

35. Who has the best voice in 46?
The Flaming Lips
Wayne Coyne, yesss.

36. Do you think 26 is/are good looking?
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Yeah, they're a good looking band! All fashionable and shit. Karen O sometimes dresses a little too weird, but those two boys are cuties.

37. How many times have you listened to your favorite song by 36?
Air France
Beach Party, 46 times.

38. How many CDs do you own of 30?
6. Dang. Fishscale is my favorite though!

39. Is there a song from 38 that makes you mad?
Their whole album, Pocket Symphony, sucks and that makes me mad. Well, it doesn't ALL suck. But in general, bleh.

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?
Out Hud
None of the members really stand out to me, so meh.

41. What does your favorite song from 48 remind you of?
Still Feels Like Tears - reminds me of...nothing in particular. Just staying up late doing nothing. Which I do all the time.

42. Did you hate 43 at first?
Junior Boys
Nope, I dig that electronic shit and always have.

43. Does your best friend also listen to 33?
Grizzly Bear
I doubt it, but if she did I'm sure she would like them cause she generally likes everything.

44. Do you think your parents would like 37?
The Radio Dept.
Doubt it, it's not noisy music for sure, but it'd be too noisy for them. Or too electronic. One of those.

45. Does 47 have a song that makes you want to dance?
Lil' Wayne
Hell yes.

46. Have you ever seen 34 in person?
Nope..but I may in April? I missed them last summer when they came to Houston. Not sure if I realllly want to see them anyways though..

47. Do you like 44's name?
It's Alison Goldfrapp's last name. An awesome last name!

48. Is there someone in 45 that you want to go out with?
He's 1/2 of The Hood Internet. Meh. Can't say I would want to go out with him.

49. Do you know anyone that hates 39?
New Order
Yeah, tons of people don't like new wave :(
