What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
'Future' - Still pretty hot to this day.

What is your favorite album of 2?
Ack. This is somewhat difficult seeing as neither of them are at all similar, I love them all in different ways. Purely going off by enjoyment I would say 'Live It Out'. 'Old World Underground, Where Are You Now' isn't that far off.

What is your favorite lyric that 5 has sung?
My My. I am getting the best questions for the best artists. I love pretty much every lyric Emily has written. If I were to choose one it would have to be "With all the luck you've had, why are your songs so sad?" from 'Reading in Bed'. It is sung during the climax of the song, amazing stuff. Saying that, the album is a lyrical masterpiece and I shouldn't have to choose one.

How many times have you seen 4 live?
Never. She played in July but I was seeing Cut Copy and The Presets the two dates she did. Sadness.

What is your favorite song by 7?
It would have to be 'Car Chase Terror' - the song is easily one of the most anthemic yet disturbing songs I have ever heard. It's pretty amazing full blast on huge headphones at 2am (in the dark). Scary stuff.

What is a good memory you have involving the music of 10?
The best memory would have to be going to seem them live last October, my favourite song by them is 'Anthems for a Seventeen Year Old Girl' and to have them play that alone is an amazing experience. To surprise everyone they brought in Emily Haines during the encore to sing her part. Just wow, that feeling was something, and still is - pretty much unexplainable.

Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
'Willow Tree' is pretty sad, his music has a recurring theme of death and despair, you can feel the emotion in his voice.

What is your favorite lyric that 2 has sung?
Emily again? Gah. Metric are lyrical geniuses also. My favourite - purely for it's humour and sarcasm would have to be "Pants down, tits out, overnight in London" from 'Dead Disco'. Haha. Amaze.

What is your favorite song by 9?
'Strangers' - be careful what you hear. o:

How did you get in to 3?
The Polaris Music Prize in 2005 got me into some Canadian bands I would not usually listen to, or be able to find. I came across a blog on 'Infiniheart' and the the rest is history.

What was the first song you heard by 1?
'For the Widows in Paradise, for the Fatherless in Ypsilanti' - one of my favourite's by the Stevens.

How many time have you seen 9 live?
Never - I shall be once they tour the UK.

What is a good memory you have involving 2?
Seeing them live for the first time on my birthday. Yes. My birthday. They were amazing, Emily was hot. I literally died right there in the moment.

Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?
'Going, Going, Gone' which also happens to be my favourite song of all time. I know the song isn't dealing with serious issues but the way it is portrayed is pretty moving. I believe the song has several different meanings - it's up to the listener to decide how they wish to perceive it.

What is your favorite album of 5?
'Knives Don't Have Your Back' - one of the my favourite records of the last few years.

What is your favorite lyric that 3 has sung?
"HOT! RED! DROPS! RED! HOT! DROPS!" from well, 'Red Hot Drops'. Haha, it doesn't sound like much on paper, or a screen - but after the buildup throughout the song it comes at such a fantastic moment. Really anthemic.

What is your favorite song of 1?
'The Mistress Witch From McClure ( Or The Mind That Knows Itself )' - Most likely within my top five songs of all time also. The pure emotion, the banjo - I am going all weird just thinking about it. Amazing man.

What is your favorite song of 10?
'Anthems for a Seventeen Year Old Girl' or 'Backyards' - they are pretty much the same song anyway, and I mean that in the most complimentary way.

How many times have you seen 8 live?
Twice - which quite frankly is not enough. They are a brilliant live band.

What is your favorite album of 1?
'Illinoise' - what a surprise.

What is a great memory you have considering 9?
I don't actually have one yet, they are incredbily fresh to me. I guess the remix of Feist's '1234' seeing as I adored that song. Something surrounding that perhaps.

What was the first song you heard by 8?
'Going, Going, Gone' - during the first season of 'Alias'. I wish to swoon right her due to the mention of Jennifer Garner.

What is your favorite cover by 2?
They have yet to do one. Lets hope they never go down that road.

What is the last song you heard by 4?
'Goodnight, California' - Fantastic.

Mucho thanks for keeping me sane.
