One Heavy February

Wild Like Children
What is your favorite lyrics of 5? (Bloc Party)
ugh, that's really difficult. Their music is so political and thought-provoking, but the lyrics I've probably related the most to I also use as an away message sometimes:
If I could do it all again
I'd make more mistakes
not be so scared of falling.
If I could do it again
I would climb more trees
I'd pick and I'd eat more wild blackberries.

What is your favorite song by number 7? (Ingrid Michaelson)

Not really. I mean, some of her songs are sad, but her music is so pretty I'm always happy when I'm listening to it, if that makes sense.

Oh geez, that's something I always go back and forth about. I think it's With Arms Outstretched though.

As cliche as it may be, Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games

I kept seeing my friends with good taste listening to her on last.fm, so I checked her out.
What is your favorite song by 4? (Smoosh)
Which of the 10 has influenced you the most?
Well, I mean, The Beatles have had a place in my life since childhood, but I feel the greatest connection with Tegan and Sara's music.

Any of the times I saw them live and the entire crowd sang along to With Arms Outstretched. That's a great feeling.
What is a good memory concerning 3? (Mirah)
Singing along to Recommendation over and over again in my car on the way to Sacramento from the bay area. That song needs to be longer.
Is there a song by 8 that makes you sad? (Tilly and the Wall)
any of their slower songs. they're such a contrast to the usual upbeat happiness of their music.
What is your favorite song of 1? (Tegan and Sara)
