How did you get into 29? Manu Chao

I heard his solo work while I was in Puerto Rico, and I already liked his former band Mano Negra

2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Franz Ferdinand

The Dark of the Matinee, loved the clip, very 80s, great song!

3. What's your favorite lyric by 33? The Human League

You were working as a waittress in a cocktail bar, that much is true...

4. How did you get into 49? Jamie Cullum

His cover of High & Dry, quite fun... Not a huge fan of the rest, still quite nice though. It is #49 of course...

5. How many albums by 13 do you own? Bad Manners

I used to have the first three on vinyl, now I have 7 of them, including the first three, as downloads. Still like them, silly!

6. What is your favorite song by 50? Eurythmics

Love Is A Stranger

7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad? Radiohead

LOL. There is hardly any of them that makes you happy, that's what I like. The saddest I think is No Surprises

8. What is your favorite song by 15? Duran Duran

The Chauffeur, sexy and menacing, or Tel Aviv

9. What is your favorite song by 5? The Police

Difficult, all in all I think The Bed's Too Big Without You

10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? The Specials

They didn't do "happy", it was all very realistic and grey. Maybe Monkey Man

11. What is the worst song by 40? Marvin Gaye

I don't really like the up tempo duets, and prefer his later work. A low is a 12"of Sexual Healing, just too long and boring. Maybe if you're having sex I guess

12. What is your favorite song by 10? The Pogues

Because of the Wire it''s The Body of an American

13. What is a good memory you have involving 30? Johnny Cash

My favourite soccer team, Feyenoord Rotterdam, sometimes plays
Ring of Fire, and I liked I walk the line, the movie as a whole.

14. What is your favorite song by 38? Suede

Saturday Night. This takes me so long that Radiohead actually crept in #38 in the mean time, see question 7!

15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy?

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, their Secret is very uplifting.

It was Loser

18. What's your favorite lyric by 11? Bob Marley & The Wailers


Said said
Said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown
Oba, ob-serving the hypocrites
As they would mingle with the good people we meet
Good friends we have had, oh good friends we've lost along the way
In this bright future you can't forget your past
So dry your tears I say

No woman, no cry
No woman, no cry
Oh my Little sister, don't she'd no tears
No woman, no cry

Said, said, said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown
And then Georgie would make the fire light
Log wood burnin' through the night
Then we would cook corn meal porridge
Of which I'll share with you

My feet is my only carriage
So I've got to push on through
But while I'm gone...

Everything's gonna be alright

20. Is there a song by 14 that makes you happy? Simple Minds
Someone, Somewhere, In Summertime

21. What is a good memory involving 27? Snow Patrol
Going to a concert, although apparently I behaved a bit autistically that night, kinda embarrassing.

Sun Hits The Sky

31. How many times have you seen 17 live? Blondie
Never!

32. Is there a song by 44 that makes you happy?
The The
I would say it's never happy bunny happy, as even songs with a nice melody have dark lyrics. I'd go for Uncertain Smile, as that was the first song I ever heard, and wasn't aware yet of the darkness.

33. How did you get into 12? Blur
Dancing (!) on their There's No Other Way, and a friend influenced me from the 2nd album on.

34. What is the worst song by 45? Oasis
I like most of their songs, nothing comes up right now. Maybe The Hindu Times as I can't recall how it goes, not a good sign.

35. What was the first song you ever heard by 34? The Human League
Almost certainly Don't You Want Me

36. What is the first song you ever heard by 48? Joe Jackson
Is She Really Going Out With Him?

Never.

38. What is you favorite song by 36? Jeff Buckley
Eternal Life

Run

40. What is you favorite album by 7? The Clash
London Calling

41. Is there a song by 31 that makes you happy? The Beautiful South
Definitely
Rotterdam (Or Anywhere). How often does a band you like sing about the city where you live and were born? And them being from the UK, while singing about a Dutch city makes it even more special. London would be quite common...

42. What is your favorite album by 41? Morcheeba
Big Calm, perfect music, perfect sleeve, one of my favourites!

43. What is your favorite song by 24? Beck
Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometimes. Wonderful movie too.

44. What is a good memory you have involving 46? Doe Maar
Mot really good ones (nor bad ones). Just that I was a little hypocrite, when they became too popular, I exchanged my albums with a friend for some others. In retrospect that's a bit childish.

45. What is your favorite song by 42? Peter Tosh
Don't Look Back

46. Is there a song by 9 that makes you happy? The Beatles
Definitely Yellow Submarine!

47. What is your favorite album by 4?Madness
Embarassment

48. Who is a favorite member of 23? Coldplay
Chris Martin. It's also the only one I know by name, the old singer of the band thing...

49. What is the first song you ever heard by 43? Everything But the Girl
Each and Every One. This takes me so long that especially in the lower regions bands changed places!

50. What is your favorite song by 20? Beirut
Not my favourite, my iPod likes him a lot. Maybe Nantes

Finally, finished on the 16th of November!
