OK, so this is not my idea, I saw it somewhere else, I think it was in a Last.fm group and I liked the idea, the randomness... so let's see.

1. How did you get into 29? Daft Punk
I was in High School and Around the World was getting a serious amount of airplay on MTV that year (back when MTV was still good). I loved the concept of the video, I've always loved Michel Gondry's work, and the tune blew my mind so I decided to give 'Homework' a shot. It got me hooked.

2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Yael Naïm
New Soul

3. How many albums by 13 do you own? Cat Power
Three: The Covers Record, The Greatest and Jukebox.

4. What is your favorite song by 15? Portishead
Hmm... that's a though one. I guess it would have to be either Roads or Over. Although I can't keep Silence (off the latest album) off my head.

5. What is your favorite song by 5? Beirut
That's easy! Cliquot.

6. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? Yann Tiersen
Definitely, yes. Two, actually: J'y suis jamais allé and A quai.

7. What is your favorite song by 10? Goldfrapp
If I have to pick just one: Number 1. But this is just so unfair, so I will pick one more: A&E.

8. What is a good memory you have involving 30? Camille
Just finding about her music and being amazed by the beauty of Le Fil. C'est magnifique!

9. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy? Stephen Fretwell
No! At least, not in the sense of a tune being uplifting, but in that of allowing myself to be amazed by such beauty in his compositions. Because realizing that such beauty exists makes me happy.

10. How many times have you seen 25 live? Death Cab for Cutie
Uhm. None...

11. What is the first song you ever heard by 23? The Knife
Heartbeats

12. What is your favorite album by 11? Rufus Wainwright
Tough one. But I guess Want One.

13. Who is a favorite member of 1? Damien Rice
Uh, it's quite obvious, no? Damo, of course.

14. Have you ever seen 14 live? Sufjan Stevens
No, but I'm dying to.

15. What is a good memory involving 27? Carla Bruni
Her songs are quite sexy, but I haven't had yet the opportunity to attach them to a moment I'd like to keep in my memory.

16. What is your favorite song by 16? Air
You Make It Easy Beautiful.

17. What is your favorite album by 18? Ely Guerra
First, it was Lotofire but then she released Sweet & Sour, Hot Y Spicy and wowed me once again.

18. What is your favorite song by 21? Serge Gainsbourg
LOL... Je t'aime... moi non plus
I would also have to say Elaeudanla téïtéïa.

19. What is the first song you ever heard by 26? Tori Amos
Wow, can't really remember. I guess it was a cover... her version of 'Enjoy the Silence'. I found it excruciating. But then I heard what she did on the 'Great expectations' soundtrack. Bravo.

20. What is your favorite album by 2? Madonna
It's not fair!!! Fuck it, I don't have just one: Confessions On A Dancefloor, Music and Ray of Light. But I also love the underrated American Life.

21. What is you favorite song by 3? Radiohead
Street Spirit (Fade Out) and Lucky.

22. What is you favorite song by 8? Sigur Rós
Við spilum endalaust. It was a toughie, because I love that whole album.

23. How many times have you seen 17 live? The Cardigans
Ha ha... None. It seems that every time this question comes up, is on artists I've not yet seen.

24. What is the worst song by 12? Björk
Well, I'd like to say none, but she does have some avant-garde shit which I don't totally understand, most of it on Medulla. But I can't name a specific track.

25. What was the first song you ever heard by 28? The White Stripes
Fell in Love With a Girl, and I fell in love with them. My best friend said they 'being just another of those garage bands, won't be around for too long. They're a one hit wonder'... ha ha ha... wrong.

26. What is you favorite album by 7? Depeche Mode
Easy: Violator. (Them, I have seen live, by the way).

27. What is your favorite song by 24? Kleerup
I love the whole album, but right now I'm listening quite a lot to On My Own Again.

28. Is there a song by 9 that makes you happy? The Beatles
Yes: Here Comes the Sun.

29. What is your favorite album by 4? Feist
Both Let It Die and The Reminder.

30. How many albums do you own by 20? Pink Floyd
Three: Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and Wish You Were Here.
