    01. How did you get into #31?

    I was a big fan of Queer as Folk (the US version) once upon a time around four yeras ago, and I stayed up until ass o'clock in the morning watching this one storyline, and then Brian and Justin got back together to the tune of Lover's Spit and it was beautiful. And the next day I downloaded You Forgot It In People and I fell in love with Broken Social Scene.

    02. What was the first song you ever heard by #22?

    Needle in the Hay is the first Elliott Smith song I ever heard, I think. In The Royal Tenenbaums.

    03. What's your favorite lyric by #41 ?
    Well, Bear McCreary is the guy who writes the score for BSG. But one time he wrote an operatic-style song for the first season, and translated into English one of the lyrics means: "There's a toaster in your head and it wears high heels." AWESOME.

    04. What is your favorite album by #49 ?

    My favourite Nick Drake album? It should be simple but it's kinda hard. …

It was built on an idea, as most grand ideas are, from something that had been building in my head for some time. I am fairly certain that it revolves around the song by Boards of Canada: 1969. I started thinking about songs named after years. I wondered if there was a song named for every year. It seemed far-fetched when i started. There are a multitude of songs out there granted, but were there enough artists out there impressed with one or any given number of random years to have named their song after it?
    Some seemed obvious: 1999, 1984, 1969. But what about 1962 or 1987. What could be so great about those years that a song is worthy of being named by it. So i started my search. I had stringent rules. Mainly, the song had to have the year in the title (though not necessarily, mentioned in the song, as mostly i am into songs without words anyway). …
