1) How did you get into 29
I pretty much grew up listening to The Smiths
, my mum's a huge fan. But I didn't properly get into them myself until I found their singles collection when I was about 14.
2) What was the first song you heard by 23
was my first OutKast
tune, I think.
3) What's your favourite lyric by 33
Wow, TV on the Radio
are so good at this, it's going to be tough, but... Tonight
stands out in particular. Probably... 'Your busted heart will be fine / In its telltale time'
4) What is your favourite album by 49
?Turn Off The Bright Lights
5) How many albums by 13
do you own?
I'm pretty sure I own all of Daft Punk
's albums except their first live one.
6) What is your favourite song by 50
?There She Goes
by The La's
. A bit predictable, I suppose, but there's a reason for that.
7) Is there a song by 39
that makes you feel sad?All My Friends
by LCD Soundsystem
can make me feel kinda crappy sometimes.
8) What is your favourite song by 15
I haven't really listend to Arcade Fire
in a while, so my memory's a bit hazy, but I'd probably have to go with Rebellion (Lies)
9) What is your favourite song by 5
Close call with Massive Attack
never fails to raise a devilish little smile, but Unfinished Sympathy
is perfection. If it came to it, I'd probably have to go with Unfinished Sympathy.
10) Is there a song by 6
that makes you happy?On
by Bloc Party
, every single time.
11) What is your favourite album by 40
. Best £5 I've ever spent. Completely recommended.
12) What is your favourite song by 10
I was hoping I wouldn't have to choose a Bon Iver
song... I'd probably go with Blindsided
, but Beach Baby
runs a *really* close second.
13) What is a good memory involving 30
Hmm... I don't really have any memories specific to Sigur Ros
. Which is weird, considering they can make any moment about 50 times more epic.
14) What is your favourite song by 38
?Running On Empty
by The Rumble Strips
. Love the way Charlie Waller screams in that one. Ahem...
15) Is there a song by 19
that makes you feel happy?The Stone Roses
are generally good at this anyway, but How Do You Sleep
stands out, despite the subject matter.
16) How many times have you seen 25
I saw the Foo Fighters
once in Hyde Park in London about 4 or 5 years ago, supported by Motorhead
, Queens of the Stone Age
and... Uh, some others. It was good, but the sound was a little bit dodgy.
17) What was the first song you heard by 22
I'm pretty sure I just bought The National
album without listening to anything by them first, so I suppose it would've been Fake Empire
. Not a bad way to start though.
18) What is your favourite album by 11
have never topped Origin of Symmetry
, and at the rate they're going now, they never will.
19) Who is your favourite member of 1
Isn't Mark Everett basically the only member of Eels
20) Have you ever seen 14
Never seen The Coral
live, no. Not really too fussed about it either.
21) What is a good memory involving 27
are good, but I don't really listen to them enough to have any delightful memories of them.
22) What is your favourite song by 16
My personal favourite Charlotte Gainsbourg
is probably The Operation
, for *that* bassline.
23) What is the first song you heard by 47
Again, I just bought Swim
without listening to any of it first, so Odessa
24) What is your favourite album by 18
's best album is probably Homogenic
, although Medulla
gets a special mention.
25) What is your favourite song by 21
I think I like Thirteen
best out of Forward Russia
's catalogue. It would be Gravity and Heat
, but that one goes on a little too long.
26) What is the first song you heard by 26
Oh, Jesus Christ, I probably heard my first Blur
song when I was about 4 years old... I have vague memories of hearing Tender
and End Of A Century
at a young age, but I've got no idea which was first. I guess End of a Century's more likely, seeing as how it came out first.
27) What is your favourite album by 3
Wow, another hard one, Radiohead
... This one varies. Though it tends to be Kid A
28) What is your favourite song by 2
With Bat for Lashes
, it's either Daniel
, Siren Song
or Pearl's Dream
. Mmm... Probably Siren Song if I really think about it.
29) What was the first song you heard by 32
You keep picking all the boring ones. Once again, the first track on Holly Miranda
's first album, Forest Green, Oh Forest Green
30) What is your favourite song by 8
by David Bowie
is hands-down my favourite song of all time.
31) How many times have you seen 17
I saw The Answering Machine
once when they supported The Rumble Strips
at the Scala in London. Possibly the only support act I've seen that managed to completely upstage the main event.
32) Is there a song by 44
that makes you happy?
Haha, 'happy' is an odd choice of words when it comes to Nirvana
. I can't really think of a song of theirs that makes me happy, as such.
33) What is your favourite album by 12
?The Flaming Lips
have never released a *bad* album, but Embryonic
is my favourite at the moment.
34) What is the worst song by 45
by The Avalanches
doesn't really keep up with the standard on the rest of Since I Left You
35) What was the first song you heard by 34
is similar to the Blur
situation, I was hearing stuff by them from such a young age that I have no idea what I heard first. It was probably either London Calling
or Rock the Casbah
36) What is your favourite album by 48
?Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever
is undoubtably The Cribs
' finest hour.
37) How many times have you seen 42
I've never seen The Beat
live, though they're still going and I'd liek to if I got the opportunity.
38) What is your favourite song by 36
It really depends on my mood with The Beatles
. I've always got time for Blackbird
39) What was the first you ever heard by 28
. First track, first album, you know the story here...
40) What is your favourite album by 7
In my experience, The Cure
aren't really an albums band, but I guess it would be Disintegration
41) Is there a song by 31
that makes you happy?Little Dragon
specialise in crafting nuggets of pure joy, but Runabout
should be prescribed as an antidepressant.
42) What is your favourite album by 41
' first, self titled album, even though the version of Too Much Too Young
on there is a bit poor.
43) What is your favourite song by 24
Oh my, Gorillaz
... I think I'm just going to have to go with my gut and say Empire Ants
. Although I'm already regretting not saying Hong Kong
or El Manana
44) What is a good memory involving 46
Once again, haven't really got anything for Gnarls Barkley
45) What is your favourite song by 35
Pretty much everything Los Campesinos!
touched before their 3rd album was gold, but I think All Your Kayfabe Friends
is the one I go back to most often.
46) Is there a song by 9
that makes you feel happy?
Despite being the most miserably fuckers on the planet right now, The xx
are still able to warm my heart with VCR
47) What is your favourite album by 4
All of Portishead
's albums are masterpieces, but Roseland NYC Live
is breathtaking, the best live album I've ever heard. If we're just talking studio albums, then it's probably Third
, even if it is quite a tough listen at times.
48) Who is your favourite member of 37
's just the one guy. I forget his name. Nathaniel something...?
49) What is the first song you hear by 43
I'm pretty sure it was Somebody Told Me
. I didn't really like The Killers
at first. Wonder why.
50) How many albums do you own by 20
I've got all three of Lemon Jelly
's albums. And they're all brilliant.
