Musically related questions...

This was something that my friend Bec sent me through an email which I thought was too precious to be posted in Friendster's bulletin board. Feel free to copy and paste this in your respective blogs if you wish. I found these questions rather fun to answer. Enjoy!

Q1: Your top ten singers/bands/musicians of all time?

I like lots of bands but the list below would have to the bands I will love till the day I die...

10. Sex Pistols
9. The Doors
8. Bloc Party
7. Interpol
6. Tears for Fears
5. The Beatles
4. U2
3. Joy Division
2. The Smiths
1. The Cure

Q2: Five most memorable lyrics?

5. It's different now that I'm poor and aging, I'll never see this face again, you'll go stabbing yourself in the neck -- "Obstacle 1" by Interpol

4. Why is the bedroom so cold? Turn away on your side. Is my timing that flawed- our respect run so dry? Yet there's still this appeal that we've kept through our lives -- "Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Joy Division

3. The further we go, the older we grow, the more we know, the less we show -- "Primary" by The Cure

2. I can't operate on this failure when all I want to be is completely in command -- "Pale Shelter" by Tears for Fears

1. If a double decker bus, crashes into us, to die by your side, well the pleasure, the privilege is mine -- "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" by The Smiths

Q3: Biggest crush in the music industry?

At the moment, I would have to say Roland Orzabal... that dancing in the "Mad World" video and the shirtless look in "I Believe" just makes me go... phwoar!!!!!

Q4: Your most favourite song from your top ten favourite singers/bands/musicians?

10. Sex Pistols - "Submission"
9. The Doors - "Love Her Madly"
8. Bloc Party - "This Modern Love"
7. Interpol - "Obstacle 1"
6. Tears For Fears - "Pale Shelter"
5. The Beatles - "Fool On A Hill"
4. U2 - "One"
3. Joy Division - "Love Will Tear Us Apart"
2. The Smiths - "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out"
1. The Cure - "Close To Me"

Q5: Song that makes you laugh?

Just one? There so many stupid songs out there! Ok, probably... "United States of Whatever" by Liam Lynch

Q6: Song that makes you cry?

"There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" by The Smiths. Seriously, need you ask why?!?

Q7: Song that makes you remember of a specific moment during your high school days?

Oh dear, for some reason "Elevate My Mind" by Stereo MC keeps on popping up in my head. This song is very memorable because of my sophomore year in high school was my wildest, I reckon... of course, not as wild as my frosh year :p

Another song would have to be "Stay" by Lisa Loeb. Not only does this song remind me of the best high school year of my life (senior year), but also of my constant argument with then best mate James as to which song is better: "Stay" or "I Swear". I know, I know... all together now..."Eeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!"

Q8: Song that never fails to make you dance?

Many of these as well. To name one, it'll probably be "Take Me Out" by Franz Ferdinand

Q9: Song that reminds you of a loved one?

Of Arnie? It'll have to be "All I Want Is You" by U2. He played it on the guitar and sang it for me a few times. It was lovely!

Q10: Your most hated song?

Only one: "Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears... it was the beginning of the death of rock in the 90s. Bloody tart...
