What was the first song you ever heard by 6 (Powderfinger)?
My Happiness when we were learning to sing it in Year 6 for Music Class. Fell in love instantly.

What is your favourite album of 2 (Shout Out Louds)?
Possibly Our Ill Wills because it was the first one I bought, but I love them all for their slightly different sounds.

What is your favourite lyric that 5 (James Morrison) has sung?
“There's so much craziness surrounding me/ There's so much going on it gets hard to breathe”
I always end up singing along to him for some reason.

How many times have you seen 4 (Kasabian) live?
Once at Big Day Out when they were my ‘new favourite band’: complete and utter awesomeness.

What is your favourite song by 7 (The Dead Weather)?
Without a doubt Treat Me Like Your Mother: so much attitude.

What is a good memory you have considering the music of 10 (Coldplay)?
Uh… they have tended to pop up at not so good times… but I did see them live and that was incredible.

Is there a song of 3 (Interpol) that makes you sad?
Surprisingly… no.

What is your favourite lyric that 2 (Shout Out Louds) has sung?
“How you choose your words, that’s where I judge you darling” would be up there… and definitely Walls in general: “You had too much to drink and all those telephone bills but it´s worth it/ Victoria I knew I would end up in Victoria/ I took to many pills and wrote my will just to get to you”

What is your favourite song by 9 (Remy Zero)?
Possibly Fair. They’re all pretty good though.

How did you get in to 3 (Interpol)?
I don’t remember the details but as soon as I came across them I knew instantly that they were perfection.

What was the first song you heard by 1 (The Killers)?
Pretty sure it was Somebody Told Me and I hated it at the time. Little did I know…

How many time have you seen 9 (Remy Zero) live?
None, and that won’t be changing seeing as they disbanded.

What is a good memory you have concerning 2 (Shout Out Louds)?
Sitting on the train listening to them and thinking how they’re pure me, not adapted or leeched from someone else.

Is there a song of 8 (John Mayer) that makes you sad?
Not overly. I guess because I don’t relate strongly to any of the depressing lyrics but Split Screen Sadness is pretty sad.

What is your favourite album of 5 (James Morrison)?
Songs for You, Truths for Me

What is your favourite lyric that 4 (Kasabian) has sung?
“Well I've been pounding at the pavement/ 'Til there's nothing at all”
“You come to take me away/ Like a little white rabbit from yesterday”
“Too much information/ Well I said you're good for nothing”
At the moment at least…

What is your favourite song of 1 (The Killers)?
Impossible to pick, maybe Change Your Mind… no, no I can’t pick.

What is your favourite song of 10 (Coldplay)?
Don’t Panic, followed closely by Yellow and Green Eyes.

None. I like to be disconnected from his real life arrogance.

Depends what kind of mood I’m in.
