Inaugural Journal Post, or, YATTQP


2. Mai. 2008, 13:39

So, this is one of the multitudinous Top Ten quiz thingys. I figured
that I might as well hurl myself on that particular bandwagon as a
starter to my journal. Yeah, it's taken a year and a half to
post, but hey, that's life.

Name your top 10 artists played on

1. The Police
2. Sting
3. Garbage
4. Aimee Mann
5. Andy Summers
6. The Cure
7. Eric Serra
8. The Whitlams
9. Alanis Morissette
10. Gary Moore

Now answer the questions according to the numbers:

What was the first song you ever heard by 6 (The Cure)?
I'm not sure, but I think it was Close to Me, on Rage late one night.

What is your favourite album of 2 (Sting)?
I really like Ten Summoner's Tales. A superbly crafted album, with an absolutely awesome lineup. I must say, though, that The Soul Cages comes a very close second.

What is your favourite lyric that 4 (Aimee Mann) has sung?
From Ghost World, on the [album
artist=Aimee Mann]Bachelor No. 2[/album] album:

'Cause I'm bailing this town
Or tearing it down
Or probably more like hanging around
Hanging around

And all that I need now is someone
With the brains and the know-how
To tell me what I want...

How many times have you seen 5 (Andy Summers) live?
Twice. Once recently with The Police, and once several years ago in a
small club, with his jazz trio. There was only about 30 people there,
and it was just amazing.

What is your favorite song by 7 (Eric Serra)?
Two Ways Out from the Léon soundtrack.

What is a good memory you have involving the music of 10 (Gary Moore)?
Cracking a large number of people up and nearly causing an accident by singing Still Got the Blues for You in a Sean Connery voice.

Is there a song of 3 (Garbage) that makes you sad?
Cup of Coffee, for reasons I will not go into here.

What is your favorite lyric that 2 (Sting) has sung?
Tough call, but probably the entirety of Jeremiah Blues (Part 1).

What is your favorite song by 9 (Alanis Morissette)?
Probably You Oughta Know.

How did you get into 3 (Garbage)?
A housemate had a copy of Version 2.0, and I sort of got into them then, and then started getting more into them when I first saw the TV show Hex, which had #1 Crush as its theme song (the real, original version, not that piece of crud that was on the Romeo+Juliet soundtrack).

What was the first song you heard by 1 (The Police)?
I think it was Message in a Bottle, not long after it was released.

What is your favorite song by 4 (Aimee Mann)?
Gah, narrow it down to one? Yeah, well, screw you, I'm gonna give you three.
Ghost World, which is a song I just love.
Pavlov's Bell, because, well, Buffy.
Sugarcoated, for reasons I can't explain.

How many time have you seen 9 (Alanis Morissette) live?
Once, on her first tour. Actually, if you get the Singles Box Set, and listen very very carefully to one of the tracks, you can just hear me in the crowd.

What is a good memory you have involving 2 (Sting)?
Seeing him live. Front row. Center. I got sweated on by him.

Is there a song of 8 (The Whitlams) that makes you sad?
I'm Still Faithful

What is your favorite album of 5 (Andy Summers)?
No question, it's Earth + sky.

What is your favorite lyric that 3 (Garbage) has sung?
Again have to go with the whole of #1 Crush.

What is your favorite song of 1 (The Police)?
Most probably Walking on the Moon. But the live version of Driven To Tears that was on a B-Side is just an amazing piece of work.

What is your favorite song of 10 (Gary Moore)?
Once in a Blue Mood. Just a great blues jam.

How many times have you seen 8 (The Whitlams) live?
Far too many times to count.

What is your favorite album of 1 (The Police)?
Probably Regatta De Blanc.

What is a great memory you have considering 9 (Alanis Morissette)?
Seeing her live. A great performance.

What was the first song you heard by 8 (The Whitlams)?
I have absolutely no idea, but probably No Aphrodisiac.

What is your favorite cover by 3 (Garbage)?
I don't think I've heard them do a cover.
