Undone - The Sweater Song. Rivers' bowl haircut in the video was hilarious:

Even the glasses weren't doing him any favors ahahaha

2. How did you get into 20 (Snow Patrol)?
The beginning of Spitting Games played in the closing credits for some shitty MTV reality show, I couldn't get the tune out of my head until I found out the name of the band + song

Courtney Taylor-Taylor!

4. What's your favorite lyric bit by 29 (The Flaming Lips)?
I know a girl who thinks of ghosts
She'll make ya breakfast
She'll make ya toast
But she don't use butter
And she don't use cheese
She don't use jelly

She uses vaseline

Buying Guero on a whim in 2005 was one of the best decisions i've ever made

All the Small Things was everywhere back in the day so you couldn't really escape it... unless you lived under a rock

Fast forward to 1:33

14. Which song do you not like by 18 (Violent Femmes)?
Song? More like Songs. I just can't get into anything beyond their self-titled album. I'll keep trying though :(

15. Why do you like 16 (The Cure)'s songs?
Robert's voice. Enough said

16. Where did you first hear 6 (R.E.M.)?

No but damn it, this question would've been perfect for EELS!

24. Does 27 (EELS) have a song that makes you happy?
I don't think Mr. E has ever written a happy song without a hint of sadness or irony. For example, between the chorus in Mr. E's Beautiful Blues ("Goddamn right, it's a beautiful day, uh-huh") E mentions how an elephant wont forget what it's like inside his cage and a clown with a frown driving to the fair while having his "finger on the trigger"

Goody Two Shoes, that drum beat is infectious :D

Quite a few, haven't really listened to them properly in a while though

Even though I like it, i'd say Semi-Charmed Life because the "doo doo doo doo"s get annoying after a bit

Girls & Boys

31. What is your favorite single by 25 (Sonic Youth)?
Kool Thing
