    I really hadn't heard so much of Eric Claptons music before I joined Last.fm. Of course, I had heard his hits like I Shot The Sheriff, Layla(Derek & The Dominos), and Wonderful Tonight. After I had heard the samples on Last.fm (…), I bought my first Eric Clapton album - Unplugged. This is my favorite album today. All the songs are great. Like the acoustic version of Layla, Signe, Old Love, Before You Accuse Me and Hey Hey. After few weeks (with exams >.<), I bought three new albums, The Cream of Clapton, Me and Mr. Johnson and his newest album, Back Home. Three great albums. Though, I must say I was a bit disappointed of Back Home.

    2. What song makes you sad?
    Never is a Promise—Fiona Apple

    3. What is the most annoying song in the world?
    I could make a list a mile long… I think the ultimate in annoying has to be The Macarena, right? I get annoyed thinking about it, even. I’d bet my left nut that you’re annoyed by me mentioning it, too!

    4. Your all time favorite band?
    This is so crazy difficult to do. If I had to pick one, I’d have to pick Pink Floyd. Or The Clash. Or Fiona Apple. Or Aerosmith. Yeah. One of those…

    5. Your newly discovered band is?
    I’m kinda falling in love with Nick Drake. He makes me happy!

    6. Best female voice?
    Fiona Apple. A close second has to go to Etta James.

    7. Best male voice?
    I absolutely adore Jamie Cullum’s voice, although I have to admit that it always freaks me out to see him sing. His body and his voice don’t seem to match up in my head.
