February 16th, a series of questions about bands.

Taken from my top 50 artists on last.fm

1. How did you get into 31?
The Breeders - "No Aloha" was on a playlist that was made for me ages ago and I downloaded the album it's taken from, Last Splash, after that.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
The Maccabees - I can't remember, it was forever ago, but I think it was probably either Latchmere or About Your Dress. In fact, I remember seeing the About Your Dress video with the fingers, so probably that.
3. What’s your favourite lyric by 41?
The Moldy Peaches - Oh god they're just hilarious. "Who mistook this steak for chicken/who am I gonna stick my dick in?" is quite the classic.



4. What is your favourite album by 49?
Ocean Colour Scene - Moseley Shoals, but to be honest it's the only one I've really heard.
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
mclusky - 2. Do Dallas and mcluskyism. I hate that they don't capitalise their name.
6. What is your favourite song by 50?
Blink-182 - I can't believe they're so far down! Josie or Down.
7. Is there a song by 4 that makes you sad?
Arctic Monkeys - Yes, a few, Cornerstone, Love is a Laserquest and Piledriver Waltz off the top of my head.
8. What is your least favourite song by 15?
Hole - Letter From Me To God. Nobody's Daughter is a pretty poor album but I think that's the worst of a bad bunch.
9. What is your favourite song by 5?
Los Campesinos! - Straight in at 101 or The International TweeXcore Underground because It references Amelia Fletcher.

10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy?
Suede - Beautiful Ones. THAT guitar intro
11. What is your favourite album by 40?
The Cure - Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me
12. What is your favourite song by 10?
Lush - Single Girl. I think.
13. What is a good memory you have involving 33)?
Primal Scream - Country Girl always reminds me of being quite young, and listening to it in my room on a Now! compilation CD. I knew all the words to every song on both discs.
14. What is your favourite song by 37?
The Verve - Drugs Don't Work. I don't really like them that much, though...
15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy?

22. What is your favourite song by 16?
Cage the Elephant - Shake Me Down

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

24. What is your favourite album by 3?
Fujiya & Miyagi - Ventriloquizzing but it's a close call because they're consistently very good, very clever.

Japanese Voyeurs - Milk Teeth
26. What is the first song you heard by 38?
