1. How did you get into 29?
I can't remember when I first heard about Soulwax, probably listening to their amazing remixes and then I listened to their albums.
About Queens of the Stone Age, my ex-boyfriend is a fan and I listened to Rated R when he bought it in 2001. I'm hooked ever since.

2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
I'm almost sure it was The Hives - Declare Guerre Nucleaire from the Vini Vidi Vicious, back in 2001, maybe? That blown me away.

3. What's your favorite lyric by 33?
My favourite verse from The Cinematics in from the song Break. So simple, so foolish, so... me.

"I like my loneliness and the thoughts it brings
The darkness can sometimes be a pleasure to me
I stand around on the outside of it peering from the edge
Looking for the answers to the questions I’ll never ask"

4. How did you get into 49?
First heard about Pinback in 2002? Or was it 2004? Don't remember. Someone in Soulseek decided to send me a message complaining I was just downloading from others but never sharing a single file. I had a dial up connection back then, too slow - and that's what I answered this girl. By the end of the day we were having this great conversation about new bands to suggest (she was from California) and she told me to get their songs. Never heard about this girl ever since, but sure she made me a Pinback fan.

5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
Marc Moulin??? Unfortunately, in "fisical" format I have none, they're too expensive and hard to find. Guess I have 9 albums on mp3, Marc solo and with the original Placebo - the one Brian Molko took the name from.

6. What is your favorite song by 50?
My fave Cake song is Jolene, for sentimental reasons - they played this song the only time I saw them live and just cause I asked them for it. Nice fellas! But they have so many great songs it's hard to choose only one.

7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad?
I can't think of any song by Metronomy that makes me sad.

8. What is your favorite song by 15?
Wow, tough question. I'm so in love with The Sugarplastic right now... I'd say I'm torn in between Transworld Modal Operator, Very Stereo and Here Comes the Mouth.

9. What is your favorite song by 5?
According to last.fm, my fave song by Mansun is Hideout ;D

10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy?
Sure, there are many songs by Telex that makes me happy. They were such a funny band! Twist à St. Tropez and Spike Jones came to mind.

11. What is the worst song by 40?
Can't think of a song by Wire to consider the worst.

12. What is your favorite song by 10?
By Weezer?!?!? Awww... it's hard to choose only one, but it definitely has to be Say It Ain't So, 1995 was a fine year and that was my soundtrack.

13. What is a good memory you have involving 30?
I don't think there's something that special involving Clor, but everytime I listen to them I feel really great. Sorely missed band.

14. What is your favorite song by 38?
When it comes to The Cars, Shake It Up and Just What I Needed are tied.

15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy?
She's A Rejecter, definitely. My fave song by of Montreal

16. Is there a song by 25 that makes you sad?
Tuxedomoon is quite gloomy alright. Dark Companion doesn't make me sad, but sounds just like its name. Great song.

17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23?
Probably first song I heard by The Clash was London Calling, when I bought this album back in my teen days.

18. What's your favorite lyric by 11?
VERY DIFFICULT for me to choose only one lyric by Blur. This time I won't choose Clover Over Dover, which is one of my favourite songs ever. I'll pick Chemical World, a song that still gets me everytime after all these years...

"These townies, they never speak to you
Just stick together, so they never get lonely"

19. Who is a favorite member of 1?
That's probably the easiest question involving XTC I could answer!
Andy Partridge all the way, forever and ever!!! Love him. I admire his music, his lyrics, his sense of humour, still have a crush on him... Every kind of love possible towards a hero I feel for him.

20. Is there a song by 14 that makes you happy?
Heartbeat is my fave song by Late of the Pier. It's so vibrant!!

Thing is, I won't consider any XTC album here, and the Fuzzy Warbles series are basically demo versions...

Video Killed The Radio Star, that I was surprised to know that the original version was by Bruce Wooley & The Camera Club instead of Buggles.

27. What is your favorite album by 3?
According to last.fm, my fave Devo album is Duty Now for the Future. It's a good call, since I can't decide it on my own... Oh, No! It's Devo, Freedom of Choice, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!and New Traditionalists are perfect albums as well.

34. What is the worst song by 45?
According to last.fm, Infatuation by The Rapture and Dawna by Morphine are the least listened tracks of both bands in my library. But I don't hate them actually...

The only opportunity I had to see the Pixies live I had to let it go, cause it was too far away and I didn't have money to travel or buy the ticket. Boo hoo.

38. What is you favorite song by 36?
Alright, this is weird: first Muse song I could think of was Plug In Baby, then I went to my library and I've just learned that this wasn't one of my most listened tracks AND it wasn't in the "Loved Tracks" list either! WTF?... My fault and, truth to be told, I listened to more Muse CDs than mp3s. Anyway, according to last.fm my top track is Exo-Politics which is a great choice as well! =D
