1. How did you get into 29?
The Zutons

iTunes internet radio featured. More specifically, Woxy! :)

2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
Handsome Furs


What We Had. First album, first single. I'm not a fan of Wolf Parade, not I dislike them, but haven't heard much from them either. This is yet another Woxy contribution to my artists


3. What's your favorite lyric by 33?
Tapes 'n Tapes

Insistor:
Challenge is for lovers, but when I run my feet hurts
So I stay here and fight for lovers rights



4. How did you get into 49?
Caribou

Heard good things about Andorra, late last year decided to check it out after a couple of weeks of listening to Melody Day.

5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
The Arcade Fire

Physical albums (CDs/Vynils)? None. Digital, all.


6. What is your favorite song by 50?
Kevin Drew

Gang Bang Suicide


7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad?
Sigur Rós

Don't really speak icelandic, but most of their tracks are kind of melancholic. At least so they seem to me. I love Svefn-g-englar.


8. What is your favorite song by 15?
Beirut

Nantes! It's been a loooong time since I've seen you smileee. Magical.

9. What is your favorite song by 5?
Grizzly Bear


Plans or Central and Remote or On a Neck, On a Spit or... or... you get it :P But those three are some of my favorites.

Don't know what't going on but they've been growing quite fast on their Last.fm charts! And they don't have new material... hmm, Radiohead backlash?

10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy?
Thrice

Not really "happy", but whenever I listen to Deadbolt I'm just jumping around or doing some air guitar. Good ol' punk days! Those kind of songs will never be made again by Thrice, and that's a good thing.

11. What is the worst song by 40?
Tool

The Pot, closely followed by Vicarious, that is pretty much A Perfect Circle song with Tool instrumentation. That album (10,000 Days) was a disappointment for me. I mean if you are going to take 5 years to make an album, people are going to expect masterpieces like Ænima or Lateralus.


12. What is your favorite song by 10?
The National

Start a War.



13. What is a good memory you have involving 30?
Finch

Don't really know for sure, never seen them live. But I'm glad they are back together again. Those Cosmonauts demos were kind of bleak.

14. What is your favorite song by 38?
Sufjan Stevens

Casimir Pulaski Day


15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy?
Voxtrot

Not happy, but somewhat hopeful. Soft and Warm. Doesn't this survey has better words than "happy"?!


16. Is there a song by 25 that makes you sad?
Snowden

... or sad. Not really, but maybe Innocent Heathen



17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23?
Forget Cassettes


Instruments of Action. Again Woxy on full throttle.

18. What's your favorite lyric by 11?
of Montreal

Basically A Past Is A Grotesque Animal. The entire song. In my Top album of 07 journal I created a category for this song only. It's got too many good lines in it.

”The past is a grotesque animal and its eyes you see how completely wrong you can be”



”It’s so embarrassing to need someone like I do you. How can I explain I need you here and not here too”



”At least I authored my own disaster” (*nice line!)



”It’s like we weren’t made for this world but I wouldn’t want to meet someone who was”



”Let’s just have some fun, let’s tear this sh*t apart, let’s tear the f*cking house apart, let’s tear our f*cking bodies apart, let’s just have some fun!”



”We want our films to be beautiful not realistic”


And so on!

19. Who is a favorite member of 1?
The Twilight Sad

I don't know them to pinpoint a favorite person within the group. To most people is almost intuitive to go with the lead singer, which it's understandable, they're pretty much the face of the group. To be honest they're all good at what they do, that's the reason they're number 1! So all of them :)


Gotta say I do love James' mic-stand-breaking ways, that I see on YouTube... you know, don't get me started...

Also congrats on the number 1 thing that came to be fairly recently :P

20. Is there a song by 14 that makes you happy?
Sleater-Kinney

Again not happy per se, but whenever I listen to You're No Rock n' Roll Fun I switch to full show-stopper mode: singing, weird choreography that doesn't really go with the song, the whole nine yards.


21. What is a good memory involving 27?
Xiu Xiu


Hmmm not yet, but I'm planning on seeing them live on August.

22. What is your favorite song by 16?
Deerhoof

Hmm, tough one. I'm going with Kidz Are So Small, because I think it captures their whole style into that one song.

23. What is the first song you ever heard by 47?
The Dears


No Cities Left Oh, the drama!!!!


24. What is your favorite album by 18?
Muse

Origin of Symmetry. Gotta say I was kind of disappointed on Black Holes and Revelations. I mean, I loved Space Dementia, but that doesn't mean I wanted that song stretched into a whole album. Just the feeling I got.

25. What is your favorite song by 21?
Broken Social Scene

Ibi Dreams of Pavement (A Better Half)


26. What is the first song you ever heard by 26?
The Walkmen

The Rat = instant modern rock classic


27. What is your favorite album by 3?
Arctic Monkeys


Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not. I liked Favourite Worst Nightmare, but debut was still better. A bit more concise.


28. What is you favorite song by 2?
Menomena

Wet And Rusting. This last week it was proved that when a song it's this excellent nothing can destroy it. There's an acoustic and a remix version... they're good. I mean there are not that many songs that can be thrown into different waters and still be great!

Sorry for the number 2 thing, gonna keep you there until you come back to the east coast ;)

29. What was the first song you ever heard by 32?
Metric

Hard to say, it's been so long! Hustle Rose?



30. What is you favorite song by 8?
Frightened Rabbit

I don't know man, it's tough. Lately, it's been Floating in the Forth. 



31. How many times have you seen 17 live?
M83
None



32. Is there a song by 44 that makes you happy?
The Big Sleep


Again with the happiness, what's the obsession with happiness? Not one song makes me "happy", almost all of them make me wanna rock!

33. How did you get into 12?
Radiohead

Radio. High and Dry. Teenage years. Enough said.



34. What is the worst song by 45?
Yeasayer

I wouldn't tag worst on any of the songs in All Hour Cymbals. It's a pretty solid album, I think. 



35. What was the first song you ever heard by 34?
Kings of Leon

I think it was The Bucket, not sure though.



36. What is the first song you ever heard by 48?
Tacks, the Boy Disaster

Matilda. Now that's a "sad" song.



37. How many times have you seen 42 live?
White Rabbits


None

38. What is you favorite song by 36?
The Hold Steady

Stuck Between Stations


39. What was the first song you ever heard by 28?
Band of Horses

The Funeral

40. What is you favorite album by 7?
TV on the Radio


Return To Cookie Mountain. Desperate Youth Blood Thirsty Babes was good, but Cookie mountain was great.

41. Is there a song by 31 that makes you happy?
Noisettes

Not "happy". But Don't Give Up


42. What is your favorite album by 41?
LCD Soundsystem


Sound of Silver


43. What is your favorite song by 24?
Apostle of Hustle

Song for Lorca. Love that song.


44. What is a good memory you have involving 46?
!!!

My two year-old niece break dancing to Must Be The Moon. Yupe, break dancing. She basically just puts her two hands on the floor and crosses one leg over the other.

45. What is your favorite song by 42?
White Rabbits

The Plot.

46. Is there a song by 9 that makes you happy?
Animal Collective

Are you serious? This is Animal-freaking-Collective. The Purple Bottle.

47. What is your favorite album by 4?
The Besnard Lakes

Tough! Both stellar albums... let's call it a draw! I'm such a wuss.

48. Who is a favorite member of 23?
Forget Cassettes


Please read above for The Twilight Sad response, although Beth has been the one constant in the group.


49. What is the first song you ever heard by 43?
The Killers

Somebody Told Me. Didn't really liked that song though.


50. What is your favorite song by 20?
Slaraffenland

Polaroids :)

I think some positions were left out... to whoever created this thing. Come up with better terms than "happy" and "sad".

That's all, I'm terribly bored. Oh well, brand new week in like 16 minutes!
