22. Nov. 2010, 6:51

1. What's your favorite song by 14?
- Wake Up (The Arcade Fire)

2. How did you get into 20?
- I enjoyed his novelty sounding ukulele songs, so I downloaded his debut album "God Bless Tiny Tim" expecting to hear a plethora of happy songs. What I got was complete insanity, tragedy, and disturbing stuff indeed. I was completely obsessed with the album for at least a month after downloading it. It's actually pretty amazing. (Tiny Tim)

3. Who is your favorite member in 8?
- I'm honestly not familiar with any of the band members themselves. I just listen to the music. (Tuxedomoon)

4. Whats your favorite lyric bit by 29?
- "My brain is just a jellyfish in the ocean of my head / 'Cause I drank too much tequila and I woke up seein' red." (The String Cheese Incident)

5. Have you ever seen 22 live?
- No, never. (The Smiths)

6. What's your favorite album from 10?
- Probably Toxicity. (System of a Down)

7. Do you own any merchandise from 3?
- I have some Phantom of the Opera stuff around here somewhere which features her. (Sarah Brightman)

8. What is a good memory you have of 7?
- Seeing Q+PR in Cleveland and being a mere 9 rows away from Brian May. (Queen)

9. Is there a member of the same age as you in 2?
- I have no idea. Very doubtful. (Bells on Trike)

10. When did you first get into 1?
- I listened to very little of their stuff until last year, to be honest. I was familiar with them, but not really a huge fan. I got pretty into them last summer, and having the opportunity to see them in August of last year pretty much sealed the deal. I'm a phan through and through. (Phish)

11. Who likes 4 along with you?
- Probably the closest would be Rett, but Rett seems to think that ol' Ernie is a douche, so that's not even really a certainty, haha. (Trey Anastasio)

12. Which song did you first hear from 15?
- Hide And Seek. (Imogen Heap)

13. What song made you fall in love with 5?
- Either Ripple, St. Stephen, What's Become of the Baby, or Scarlet Begonias. (The Grateful Dead)

14. Which song do you not like by 18?
- I don't think there's really any that I don't like that I've heard, honestly. (The Beau Brummels)

15. Why do you like 16's songs?
- Her voice, lyrics, and interesting piano playing style are superb. (Regina Spektor)

16. Where did you first hear 6?
- In 2005 or something, I went on a downloading rampage of all of these "cool, obscure bands". One of the ones I fell in love with was CocoRosie. (CocoRosie)

17. How long was 19 a singer before you liked them?
- Longer than I've been alive, by far. (Talking Heads)

18. Does 13 have a song that gives you a bad memory?
- Love Song kind of does, actually. (The Cure)

19. When did you get into 17?
- When I was a kid, pretty much. Mom and Nana are both fans. (The Ramones)

20. How long have you been into 11?
- Since I was a freshman in high school, if not even before then. I know that I was mad into The Wall when I was a freshman, but I feel like I was exposed to their music and approved greatly long before then. (Pink Floyd)

21. If 9 had a concert 300 miles away, would you drive there to see them?
- Just to see Paul and Ringo? Fuck no. If they resurrected George and John for the occasion, then GOD YES I'd be there, though. (The Beatles)

22. How many CDs do you own of 12?
- I own all of his albums with Phish, solo, and with Leo digital format. (Mike Gordon)

23. Does 21 have a song that makes you cry?
- No. They have a few which kind of creep me out, but in a good way. None which make me cry. (Themselves)

24. Does 27 have a song that makes you happy?
- Vote On Tuesday always makes me really happy. Good stuff. (Tea Leaf Green)

25. Does 23 have a song that makes you smile?
- His songs aren't generally very happy, honestly! Twilight does make me smile because it's such a fucking awesome song, though. (Elliott Smith)

26. What's the last song you've listened to from 28?
- Beauty Of A Broken Heart, I think. (Page McConnell)

27. Is there a song by 32 that you've listened to more than 30 times?
- According to, no. I've not scrobbled one more than 30 times. Pretty sure that I've listened to Divine Disappointment over a hundred times, though. (Alias)

28. What is a song from 50 that you've only listened to once?
- I have no idea, really. Probably one of the songs I didn't really like stuck in the middle of her albums. I don't know. (Jenny Owen Youngs)

29. Is there a song you are sick of hearing by 24?
- I got way burnt out on The First Day of My Life. I doubt I could still listen to and enjoy that song, honestly. (Bright Eyes)

30. What song got you into 40?
- Well, this is the songwriting team behind most of Phish's songs - Trey and Tom - so it'd probably have to be a Phish song that got me into them. I must say, however, that the song which had me sold on their album (Trampled By Lambs And Pecked By The Doves) would have to be Limb By Limb, from which the title of the album is taken. (Trey Anastasio and Tom Marshall)

31. What is your favorite single by 25?
- I don't know if he really has any commercial singles, per say. I will say that I love The Tale Of The Private Mind. (Doseone)

32. If 49 hated you, what would you do?
- I probably would be kind of hurt, actually. (Amanda Palmer)

33. What would you say if 42 or one of the members from 42 asked you out?
- "Thanks but no thanks, Keller." (Keller Williams)

34. Would you care if 41 had a boyfriend/girlfriend?

- Not especially. (The Disco Biscuits)

37. How many times have you listened to your favorite song by 36?
- Many, many times. (Jefferson Airplane)

38. How many CDs do you own of 30?
- None. Digital. (Disco Biscuits; tagged differently I suppose - probably why they're on here twice.)

39. Is there a song from 38 that makes you mad?
- Nope. (Kimya Dawson)

40. Which member from 31 do you want to see go solo? If 31 is only one artist, what would you do if they joined a group?
- He is solo, and he has performed with groups. I suppose I love him regardless. I'm also surprised he's so low on my list. (Bob Dylan)

41. What does your favorite song from 48 remind you of?
- I try to rap over it all the time. It reminds me of that. (Kno)

43. Does your best friend also listen to 33?
- Not too sure. (Umphrey's McGee)

44. Do you think your parents would like 37?
