40 About My Top 50


Ott 22 2009, 3:01

1. How did you get into 31? Green Day
I begun listening to them at the beginning of Year 9 I think, my best friend at the time liked them, so I bought American Idiot to check them out, then got all the other albums for Christmas.

2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Jentina
Bad Ass Strippa Oh dear haha. She's 22 because I've overplayed this song way too much, I can remember buying it from Asda when I was a young un :') The music just gave me a feeling about the excitement to come from growing up, so this reminds me of my youth and memories of going out, hence why I play it a lot.

3. What's your favorite lyric by 29? Joy Division
Oh gosh, depends on my mindset. Ian Curtis has some beautiful lyrics.
But at the moment because of my solitary attitude I'll opt for some Isolation lyrics;
But if you could just see the beauty
These things I could never describe
These pleasures a wayward distraction
This is my wonderful prize
Highlights for me how trapped I am within myself but in an optimistic sense. Reminds me of the quirks that I never show anybody and the daily rituals that only I get to see and it makes me feel content with who I am.

4. What is your favourite album by 49? Peaches
The Teaches of Peaches
Probably followed by Impeach My Bush

5. How many albums by 13 do you own? Violent Femmes
Two, I really should own more though...
Only started listening to these a lot recently, probably due to Jeffrey Blitz whoring them in Rocket Science. Don't worry, I'm not just a Blister In The Sun lover ;-)

6. Favorite song by 50? Studio B
Haha oh god, I think they only have one? Well one 'hit'. Again, another song I overplay way too much. I See Girls again, is one of those songs that I loved when I was younger and reminds me of my youth and the excitement of going out etcc.

7. Is there a song by 4 that makes you sad? Radiohead
You're asking me if Radiohead have any sad songs? Aha.
Exit Music (for a Film) stands out here as it's my second favourite Radiohead song and I'd like this played at my funeral.

8. Favorite song by 15? Death in Vegas
Dirge hands down. One of the most beautiful, indescribable songs I have ever heard. It's one of those songs that are so dark yet so innocent at the same time. If anything it reminds me of my state of mind. Projects wonderful images and sequences into my mind.

9. Favorite song by 5? IAMX
Christopher Corner, nom nom nom. He has so many tbh.
President, Song of Imaginary Beings, You Stick It In Me or The Negative Sex if just for the line; "We all want to fuck ourselves and rape the world." (L)

10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? Klaxons
Atlantis to Interzone (Demo) will never fail to remind me of my youth and always conjures up memories of K-Fo, meeting them, and general memories from being 14-15.

11. Favorite album by 40? Michael Andrews
Aha obviously has to be; Donnie Darko: Music From The Original Motion Picture Score
One of my favourite scores ever. Manipulated Living is just absolute love. I cannot stop playing it at the moment when I go for my solitary walks. I feel powerful just listening to it.

12. Favorite song by 12? Late of the Pier
Perhaps a bit clichéd but Space and the Woods
I can just completely let go to this song, and it brings out the slimy indie kid in me aha.

13. What's a good memory involving 33? The Smiths
Oh Mr Morrissey...a good memory would probably be the first time I ever heard The Smiths. Which was yearrrs ago. VH1 was on and How Soon Is Now? came on and I remember staring at the screen with such intrigue and curiosity. I then went on to hunt out some Smiths albums and have made many memories since. Dancing to This Charming Man on nights out and being in isolation silently crying to There Is a Light That Never Goes Out are in the memory fileee.

14. Favorite song by 37? Crystal Castles
AirWar I love Airwar. It's so simple, yet so easy to lose yourself in. You can dance or relax to it too which I really like. Very calming. I actually remember how I discovered Crystal Castles too. An online friend sent me a link to their Myspace and then sent me their remix of Atlantis to Interzone and said I would probably like them because of my liking for Klaxons and because I liked more hardcore stufff.

15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy? The Avalanches
Frontier Psychiatrist (L)! Just 4 minutes of absolute brilliance. I always play this when I'm getting ready or if I have control of the music at a party. To hear this on a night out would be truly amazing.

16. How many times have you seen 24 live? Nirvana
Haha none I'm afraid. To have seen them would have been quite the experience though.

17. What was the first song you heard by 23? The Gossip
Listen Up Courtesy of Miss Nicole Walker. I remember loving Beth, the video and the bassline ever so much. Before Standing in the Way of Control was completely whored I can remember me and Nicole sending each other songs of us singing to different songs and she did Listen Up and it was so good! I got hooked on Standing in the Way of Control from this and played it quite a bit a couple of years back.

18. Favorite album by 11? Nellee Hooper
Haha, unfortunately I don’t think that there is a link to his only ‘album’ (U)
He did the Romeo & Juliet score. And this is my favourite score. Ever.
Introduction To Romeo will always be in my top five favourite songs ever. It is one of the most gorgeous, beautiful pieces of music that I have ever heard. Sampling Radiohead, adding violins and Shakespearan quotes, phenomenal.

19. Favorite member of 1? Bright Eyes
Conor Oberst
My idol, my inspiration etccc.

20. Have you ever seen 14 live? Lady Gaga
Haha, now isn’t this the guilty pleasure…None, but tbh I think she would be great live. She’s an amazing performer and two of my most favourite of her performances are from The Ellen Degeneres show and The Rove show. Her lyrics are absolutely fucking dire though, but that just makes me like her just that little bit more. Annoyingly catchy as fuck songs, i.e. I can’t stand Poker Face yet I want to listen to it.

21. What's a good memory involving 45? Timbaland
Haha, oh dear. Another overplayed song I’m guessing…but the good memory has to be that every time I’m in Basement with Nicole they always play The Way I Are and it’s just a great song to dance to and start the night with I guess, well it’s a great song if you’re in Basement…everything else they play is fucking dire :-)

22. What's your favourite song by 16? Madonna
Hung Up stands out by a mile. Although Frozen, Music and Beautiful Stranger are great too. This song just gives me indescribable feelings and takes me off to another world, just with the intro and the climax towards the end (L)

23. First song you ever heard by 47? The Cardigans
Probably Lovefool Brilliant pop song. I love Nina Persson’s voice, it just seems to reflect her beauty on the outside so well.

24. Favorite album by 21? Justin Timberlake
Just because of the youth factor. I don’t care what anybody says, JT is a great pop artist. I actually bought this album when I was younger (L) aha.

25. Favorite song by 18? Daft Punk
Oh so many choices! Probably Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger though. Just because of how it never fails to remind me perfectly of an arcade and then this triggers memories of the amusements and Spanish City in Whitley Bay aha and I just remember really good times and then I think to myself how I want to dance in an arcade and this song is just a great song tbh. Kanye picked this sample well.

26. First song by 38? Regina Spektor
That I heard or that she released? Well the first song by Regina that really caught my attention was Après Moi when the lovely Selim put it on the mix CD he made me. I then started to listen to some of her stuff, particularly Begin to Hope and I instantly liked her.

27. Favorite lyric by 3? Test Icicles
Lmao, because this is a band that I clearly loved for their masterpiece lyrics :’)
Oh I do miss them though. Such memories they bring. Nothing special, but I love how the lyrics in Circle. Square. Triangle and the song as a whole manage to highlight the change from the 90’s to the 00’s era. Along with the video, I think it’s the first piece of music that makes that transition and reaches out to that particular audience and gives you feeeeeling.

28. Favorite song by 2? Patrick Wolf
The Libertine The first ever band or artist that made me appreciate the beauty and importance of lyrics. I will always love Patrick Wolf just based on the reason alone that he helped get me through the hardest time of my life, particularly this song. Achieving freedom is worth more than anything else and this highlights this perfectly. The violin, the lyrics, the darkness ahhh (L)

29. First song you heard of 10? Laura Marling
I’m guessing it would be Ghosts as I heard good things about her and downloaded Alas I Cannot Swim and this is the opener! Beautiful voice and such beautiful lyrics for a 19 year old.

30. Favorite song by 8? Fluke
Absurd Nothing could ever beat it. Possibly my most favourite dance song, ever. I remember asking a DJ to play this and he had never heard of Fluke (U) I then called him shit.

31. How many times have you seen 17 live? Metronomy
Even though I bought a ticket to go see them at the academy I didn’t end up going because of my shit ex at the time. So none. I should of seen them though. I like Metronomy, nothing special but nothing bad either.

32. Is there a song by 44 that makes you happy? The Hives
Hate To Say I Told You So An absolute classic of an Indie song. I like listening to this on a sunny walk when I’m not overly thinking and surrounded by people, it makes me smile.

33. Favorite album by 12? Late of the Pier
Considering that there is only one…Fantasy Black Channel It is a very good album though. Hence why LOTP are number 12.

34. Worst song by 9? Arctic Monkeys
A few from Favourite Worst Nightmare were extremely disappointing, but Fluorescent Adolescent really fucking annoys me though and I hate it.

35. What's the first song you heard by 34? MGMT
Something from Climbing to New Lows, I can’t recall what though. I don’t find MGMT to be amazing or anything. Quite bored of them at the moment.

36. Favorite album by 42? Faithless
Reverence Faithless were the first ever ‘real’ band that I classified as my favourite, i.e. after the Steps and Spice Girls era…I absolutely adored them and I remember buying this album in Windows years ago. This reminds me when I had my tape player and I used to make a hell of a lot of tapes and when I bought this I was so excited to be able to put the likes of Salva Mea and Insomnia on my mixes. Oh, good times.

37. How many times have you seen 39 live? No Doubt
None, not too fussed though aha. I’m surprised these are so high. But saying that though the multiple plays of Hey Baby, Don’t Speak and Just a Girl must have gotten them there. Good band.

38. What's your favorite album by 35? Kasabian
I actually think their newest album West Rider Pauper Lunatic Asylum would have to be my favourite. If it’s one thing I like about Kasabian it’s their consistency. They don’t try to better themselves or head in a new direction, yet all of their material still manages to be fresh and maintains the element of just good sound indie.

39. What's the first song you heard by 28? Gary Numan
Probably Cars. One of the best songs of the 80’s, electro at it’s best.

40. What's your favorite album by 7? Muse
Jesussss, probably Origin of Symmetry Features some of their best, although it’s closely followed by Black Holes and Revelations, but I can’t stand Starlight

Well this didn’t take long at all…
