  • Forty Questions About Fifty Artists: End of the Decade Edition

    Dic 17 2009, 0:06

    1. How did you get into 31? (伊藤賢治)
    Mana series and Romancing Saga, I believe.

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? (MintJam)
    The oldest song of theirs on my iTunes is Rival, so I'm going with that. Sounds about right anyway.

    3. What's your favorite lyric by 29?
    It's between KOKIA and Lily Allen... Favorite by KOKIA is perhaps the "Mama, pinku no zou-san dayo!" in ピンクの象. Favorite from Lily Allen, in Friday Night, the line that goes something like "Nice dancing, love, but you should've worn a bra."

    4. What is your favorite album by 49?
    Chroma Chrome or Raining Jane. Only have an album from the latter, so I guess it'd be that, Diamond Lane.

    5. How many albums by 13 do you own? (Andreas Vollenweider)
    I think 4: White Winds, Book of Roses, Dancing With The Lion, Down to the Moon.

    6. What is your favorite song by 50?
    Chroma Chrome or Raining Jane. キキミミ and Wyoming Sky, respectively.

    7. Is there a song by 4 that makes you sad? (ALI PROJECT)
    Most of them, because they're so damn hard to translate. Srsly though, maybe ナルシス・ノワール.

    8. What is your favorite song by 15? (Swing Out Sister)
    As much as I like Touch Me Now and some others, I think it's gotta be Twilight World. First and best.

    9. What is your favorite song by 5? (菅野よう子)
    Favorite Yoko Kanno song? Srsly? I guess back in middle school I had an obsession with Wo Qui No Coin. Honestly though, way too many to choose.

    10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? (茶太)
    I dunno about happy per se, but やまと somehow touches me deeply. Other than that だんご大家族 is a nice cute happy song.

    11. What is your favorite album by 40? (Little Wing)
    REVERIE -Sound Sketch 'Kino's Journey'- Only one I got.

    12. What is your favorite song by 10? (新居昭乃)
    Tough choice. Top played is オマツリ.

    13. What is a good memory you have involving 33? (Gym Class Heroes)
    Seeing them live in concert at school.

    14. What is your favorite song by 37? (Moloko)
    Not sure. My favorite Roisin Murphy is Sow Into You, but that's not the same. Maybe Forever More.

    15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy? (葉月ゆら)
    Well 輝石 is gorgeous but I dunno about "happy."

    16. How many times have you seen 24 live? (Hiroshi Yamaguchi)
    None. Just a composer, anyway.

    17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23? (Thomas Dolby)
    Oh god I could not tell you. The first song I obsessed over was Screen Kiss though.

    18. What is your favorite album by 11? (Modest Mouse)
    I haven't heard all of them, but of the two I have I think I like Good News For People Who Love Bad News better.

    19. Who is a favorite member of 1? (HANA Wakusei Music)
    Well, seeing as Se-ko Izumi is really the only member, I suppose that'd be her. This is the same answer I had last time I took this quiz.

    20. Have you ever seen 14 live? (Eiya)
    None.

    21. What is a good memory involving 45? (m-flo)
    Making fun of the "boom clap boom b-boom clap" at the beginning of miss you in the school courtyard thing at HS.

    22. What is your favorite song by 16? (Masami Ueda)
    The stuff from the Okami OST. No favorite.

    23. What is the first song you ever heard by 47? (Tomohito Nishiura)
    The Dark Chronicle opening theme, Endless Adventure.

    24. What is your favourite album by 21? (Laura Veirs)
    Somehow I knew this question would come up. Saltbreakers is the first I've heard, and the only one I've listened to exetensively, so that one.

    25. What is your favourite song by 18? (kukui)
    透明シェルター, deffo. Also the first one I heard.

    26. What is the first song you ever heard by 38?
    Iain Ballamy or 光田康典. So, Sock Puppets / Flyover, being the opening to Mirrormask, and Time's Scar, probably.

    27. What is your favourite lyric by 3? (下村陽子)
    No lyrics, it's instrumental.

    28. What is your favourite song by 2? (Clouds)
    Favorite Clouds song, really? Maybe Wave. 4 pm is also good, and like, a ton of other songs. (Australian indie Clouds)

    29. What was the first song you ever heard by 32? (Mika Matsuura)
    I'll say Cursed Shinshu Field.

    30. What is your favorite song by 8? (Värttinä)
    Stop asking me these things! Most of the songs on Miero I think.

    31. How many times have you seen 17 live? (Gnarls Barkley)
    None.

    32. Is there a song by 44 that makes you happy? (hicalculator)
    Life is Game or Fight it out.

    33. What is you favourite album by 12? (Yo Gabba Gabba!)
    All the song collections suck actually. My own rips are my favorite album.

    34. What is the worst song by 46? (Awesome New Republic)
    Their songs that aren't the first few of Rational Geographic Vol. 1.

    35. What was the first song you ever heard by 34? (Olivia)
    Bliss Forest.

    36. What is you favourite album by 42?
    Rei Kondoh, Hiroshi Ebihara, or 増田俊郎. Okami OST or Naruto OST.

    37. How many times have you seen 39 live?
    Iain Ballamy or 光田康典. None for both.

    38. What is your favourite album by 36? (Panic at the Disco)
    Pretty. Odd.

    39. What was the first song you ever heard by 28? (The Manhattan Transfer)
    I'm going with Blue Serenade or The Offbeat Of Avenues.

    40. What is you favourite album by 7? (Sanagi)
    I like both of 'em equal. Sailing The Seven Seas though, maybe.
