I'm With Stupid
It's not her best album, but it was my first Aimee album and still has a lot of significance to me. It also contains some of my all-time favorite tracks.
What is your favorite lyric that 1 has sung?
Oh jeeze. I love all of them. It's going to be hard to choose one. But I guess I'll choose the one that cemented Tori as an ultimate Goddess in my life.
"So you can make me cum that doesn't make you Jesus"
- "Precious Things" - Tori Amos
C'mon, that's the most awesome lyric ever!!!
* I'm still going to stick with my original answer on that lol.
How many times have you seen 11 live?
I've seen Metric live once. I went to the Metro with my friend Jen to see them a few years ago. It was a really awesome show. We made our way up to the front and I was so close to Emily Haines! We had to stand for hours, but it was worth it.
What is your favorite song by 7
Running Up That Hill
This is the song that made me love Kate. I know it's an obvious choice, but it's still my favorite song by her and I'm always happy when it comes on my foobar or Zune.
What is a good memory you have involving 20?
I don't know if I really have any happy memories of listening to Rasputina. I usually listen to them when I'm in one of my dark moods.
Is there a song by 3 that makes you sad?
Umm the first one that comes to mind is Sorry I Am, especially the live version on Living in Clip. It has always made me sad because I can relate the song to many messed up situations in my life.
What is your favorite lyric that 14 has sung?
I'm not that hot new chick
And if you won't let me run with it
We're on to your same old trick
Get up and run away with it
- Cat Power "He War"
What is your favorite song by 19?
I've always loved Possibly Maybe. The melody is just so soothing and melds nicely with her voice. I like listening to it before bed.
How did you get in to 22?
I remember watching a lot of Vh1 as a kid back in the 90s. Vh1 played a lot of Sarah McLachlan when Surfacing came out. I remember not being that impressed at first, but for some reason the song Adia really grabbed me, so I bought the album. It took me a while, but I eventually got to love Surfacing and her other albums. I also got my mom to love Surfacing as well.
What was the first song you heard by 21?
Oh jeeze I think it was Sprout and the Bean. I remember not liking Joanna when I first heard her because I found her voice so off-putting at first. I eventually grew to appreciate the genius of her lyrics and melodies.
What is your favorite song by 4?
That's tough because I love so many PJ songs for different reasons. I guess I'll pick Sheela-Na-Gig since that was one of my favorite songs from her due to the lyrics and music and I still love it today.
How many time have you seen 10 live?
Never. I would have loved to have seen Joni live back when she was in her prime in the 1970s. I'd still like to see her live though even though I'm not that into her new stuff.
What is a good memory you have involving 13?
I have many good memories involving Gaga. I always listen to her when I'm in a bad mood. She always cheers me up. She also reminds me of my sister since she is the one who got me into her.
Is there a song by 23 that makes you sad?
Hmm that's tough. I don't think there's a song that really makes me sad by Patti Smith. Although, Pissing in a River is pretty emotional to me.
What is your favorite album of 15?
I love nearly all their albums, but the first one Garbage still resonates the most with me.
What is your favorite lyric that 9 has sung?
The lyrics to The Way Things Are are pretty much the story of my life.
What is your favorite song by 8?
Ooooh that's so hard because I love a bunch of SK songs for different reasons. I guess I'll pick Combat Rock since I can listen to that song all the time. Everything about it is perfect to me. I love the lyrics, melody, and singing. I love it when Corin and Carrie sing together.
What is your favorite song by 16?
Gone Sugaring I love everything about that song. The melody and vocals are amazing and always put me in a good mood.
How many times have you seen 5 live?
Never, but I'd love to see her live. I love Liz so much!!!
What is your favorite album by 12?
Umm that's a tough call. I like a lot of them equally. I used to like Bed the most, but I think I love Hey Babe the most now. The songs just really speak to me, especially Ugly, which could be the story of my psyche.
What is a good memory you have involving 25?
I used to listen to Emily Haines all the time when I was at work. Her soothing voice, beautiful music, and brilliant lyrics always made my shitty days at my office job go by a lot better.
What was the first song you heard by 18?
I first heard it on a cable radio station I used to listen to a lot. I didn't care for the song at first, but then grew to love it and the rest of the Let It Die album.
What is your favorite song by 17?
That's a tough decision since I love listening to nearly all of her songs. I guess I'll pick
Dilapidalliance since I really love the lyrics and the melody. It just stick out to me more than most of her other songs.
What is your favorite album by 24?
It contains most of my favorite Softies songs.
