I don´t usually do these, but what the heck... how often would one show up on this collection of artists?
1. How did you get into 31?
(actually tied for 29) I had heard some of his older stuff, but I didn´t really know what Prince
was until he did the Batman Soundtrack
. I had only just started listening to pop music at that point, and I was quickly infected by his hooks. Then I went back and picked up Purple Rain
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
(actually tied for 21) My parents had The Best of the Smothers Brothers, Vol. 2
(of course, there never was a Vol. 1), so my first Smothers Brothers
song would have been Cabbage
. Probably the first one I had memorized, too.
3. What's your favourite lyric by 29?
Hmmm... four-way tie... Van Halen
is actually 29th on the list, so:
(those are the lyrics to Eruption
4. What is your favourite album by 49?
Tie again... let´s call it Incubus
. I have to say the title goes to Make Yourself
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
