Now answer the questions according to the numbers:

- What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
One day, I was listening to KEXP and heard Casimir Pulaski Day on the radio. I was impressed, but I didn't connect with it right away. I think it took almost all my friends talking about how amazing the album Illinois was. I ended up downloading it, then buying it, and I haven't stopped listening to it yet.

- What is your favorite album of 2?
The album that got me into the Doves was Some Cities. I had never even heard of them before I listened to that album. I was actually at this record store in Seattle with my friend and he told me to stand at a listening booth and listen to the album.

- What is your favorite lyric that 5 has sung?
Picking a single lyric from Issac Brock is not an easy task, as one of the main reasons I love Modest Mouse is his lyrics.
"I've changed my mind so much I cant even trust it
My mind changed me so much I cant even trust myself"
from Talking Shit About a Pretty Sunset

-How many times have you seen 4 live?
Once, at the Bumbershoot Music Arts Festival in Seattle. I would love to see them again.

-What is your favorite song by 7?
The Bass and the Movement has always been a favorite of mine. There is a million others as well.

-What is a good memory you have involving the music of 10?
Living in the U-District with my friends, where we would trade music freely and inspired each other quite a bit. The Shins are one of those bands that I found then and I always think of those times. Simple times, simple lives.

-Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
I don't listen to the music that makes me sad as much as the music that makes me happy. NIN was more of an aggression music for me. But, I guess The Becoming or Hurt would be the saddest music.

-What is your favorite lyric that 2 has sung?
"And I feel, like I'm losing my head
I didn't mean to stay
Lives have been wrecked, and I've picked up my cheque"
The Man Who Told Everything

-What is your favorite song by 9?
One More Robot/Sympathy 3000-21 or Turn It On

-How did you get in to 3?
Back in the day, when The Downward Spiral came out, I realized who that band was. I liked the stuff on the radio, like Head Like a Hole, but what caught my attention the most was when I was at my friend's house watching Woodstock '94 and I caught Nine Inch Nails performance. After that, I was obsessed.

-What was the first song you heard by 1?
It was most likely Laid, as that was the first album I got by them because of that single. It's been such a long time since I first started listening to them, though. I'm not sure.

-What is your favorite song by 4?
The best R.E.M. song ever is Find the River.

-How many time have you seen 9 live?
One time. They opened for Beck, actually. And then they were his backup band.

-What is a good memory you have involving 6?
I'm in my car with this girl whom I like a lot. We were talking about music and I mention Sufjan. She hasn't heard of them, so I call KEXP and request They Are Night Zombies!! They Are Neighbors!! They Have Come Back From the Dead!! Ahhhhh! and they play it as the very next song. A perfect moment, for sure.

-Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?
There is a lot of sad Beck songs. The whole album sea change is pretty sad.

-What is your favorite album of 5?
Good News For People Who Love Bad News has bypased their earlier work. The Moon & Antarctica blew my mind when I first heard it too.

-What is your favorite lyric that 3 has sung?
"lay my hands on Heaven and the sun and the moon and the stars.
while the devil wants to fuck me in the back of his car."
The Only Time

-What is your favorite song of 1?
Tomorrow would be the one that I've obsessed the most over.

-What is your favorite song of 10?
So Says I

-How many times have you seen 8 live?
Let's count. Once at the Paramount, once at Benaroya Hall with the Flaming Lips, any more? I can't remember. At least twice, maybe more.

-What is your favorite album of 1?
I really like their last album. Pleased To Meet You

-What is a great memory you have considering 9?
Besides seeing them live? Listeing to Zaireeka for the first time. My roommates and I all pull out cd players into the living room. We each arm one with a disc and press play in the correct order. Then we all get really high and experience the amazing audio experience.

-What was the first song you heard by 8?
Loser, of course. I remember when this first broke on radio. Awesome song.

-What is your favorite cover by 1?
On the b-sides collection, the have this awesome cover of China Girl by David Bowie.
