    Now answer the questions according to the numbers:

    What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
    It was probably either South Side or Extreme Ways. It was so long ago, I can't remember.

    What is your favourite album of 2?
    Definitely The Lord of the Rings, which I consider one album because it tells one continuous story.

    What is your favourite lyric that 5 has sung?
    "The more you lose the less you see,
    So close your eyes and start to breathe,
    Oh you said yourself, this wasn't easy."

    How many times have you seen 4 live?
    Never! D:

    What is your favourite song by 7?
    It's Good To Be In Love. If this song were human, it would be my soul-mate.

    What is a good memory you have involving the music of 10?
    Relaxing in bed and falling asleep to the sounds of Dayvan Cowboy.

    Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
    Uh... Sigur Rós makes me so happy, it's a little sad. Does that count?

    What is your favourite lyric that 2 has sung?
    He's a composer, but my favourite lyric from his albums is:
    "When the cold of winter comes
    Starless night will cover day
    In the veiling of the sun
    We will walk in bitter rain

    But in dreams
    I can hear your name
    And in dreams
    We will meet again"
    Sung by Edward Ross in The Breaking of the Fellowship from The Fellowship Of The Ring album. :')

    What is your favourite song by 9?
    Sunday 29th.

    How did you get into 3?
    I... Uh. I don't know! I can't remember. :/

    What was the first song you heard by 1?
    Cherry Blossom Girl! It's the entire reason I went searching for more songs by them.

    What is your favourite song by 4?
    A&E. :)

    How many time have you seen 9 live?
    Never.

    What is a good memory you have involving 2?
    I have so many good memories involving Howard Shore's music, it's ridiculous. It's the only music I listened to in high school. I played it constantly, all the time, on repeat. It at times would make me cry, make me laugh, make me cheer. I was as equally in love with the Lord of the Rings music as I was with the books and the movies. I know it's such a cliche to say, and I hate to say it, but... This music saved my life. And my love for it has not diminished over the years.

    Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?
    Can't think of one.

    What is your favourite album of 5?
    Her newest, Ellipse.

    What is your favourite lyric that 3 has sung?
    Well... they sing in Icelandic.

    What is your favourite song of 1?
    Mer du Japon.

    What is your favourite song of 10?
    Dayvan Cowboy!

    How many times have you seen 8 live?
    Never. I fail when it comes to concerts.

    What is your favourite album of 1?
    I guess I'll go with Talkie Walkie.

    What is a great memory you have considering 9?
    I always associate them with my sister, because we both went a little crazy with them for a while.

    What was the first song you heard by 8?
    Follow My Ruin.

    What is your favourite song by 2?
    How much time do you have? Concerning Hobbits, Lothlorien, The Breaking of the Fellowship, May It Be, The Riders of Rohan, The King of the Golden Hall, Evenstar, The Breath Of Life, Forth Eorlingas, Gollum's Song, Minas Tirith, The Steward of Gondor, The Ride of the Rohirrim, The Return of the King, Into the West.
    If you're going to make me narrow it down a bit more to one song:
    The Fellowship Of The Ring - The Breaking of the Fellowship.
    The Two Towers - It was a tough choice between Forth Eorlingas and something like The Riders of Rohan or The King of the Golden Hall which feature the beautiful violin theme that I associate with The Two Towers and Rohan, but in the end I went with Forth Eorlingas.
    The Return Of The King - Minas Tirith.

    I am completely, 100%, obsessively, head-over-heels in love with Air.

    I cannot even put into words how much I love this band.

    They make my soul smile.

    Hypnotic.
    Transcendent.
    Boundless.
    Consummate.
    Sublime.
