    Now answer the questions according to the numbers:


    What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
    I'm sure I heard some of the classics before I really knew how Dylan was. But the first song I heard and actually credited in my head as a Bob Dylan song was Subterranean Homesick Blues.

    What is your favourite album of 2?
    Black Sheep Boy. Near perfect.

    What is your favourite lyric that 5 has sung?
    Hmmmm.

    "In the gentle light as the morning nears
    You don't say a single word of the last two years
    Where you were when you reached the frontier
    I didn't understand, no"

    Just a great song. They have a lot of brilliant lyrics.

    How many times have you seen 4 live?
    Never :(

    What is your favourite song by 7?
    Probably going to have to go with "These Wooden Ideas"

    What is a good memory you have considering the music of 10?
    Being the good kind of drunk in Scream with a group of wonderful friends, dancing in a circle to Cemetery Gates.

    Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
    None of his songs make me sad, but he has sad songs that compliment my own sadness if I'm feeling shit. The Streets of Philadelphia for one.

    What is your favourite lyric that 2 has sung?
    Ugh. So so many. At the moment I really love:

    And I believe that if stones could dream they'd dream of being laid side-by-side, piece by piece, and turned into a castle for some towering queen they're unable to know. And when that queen's daughter came of age, I think she'd be lovely and stubborn and brave, and suitors would journey from kingdoms away just to make themselves known.

    What is your favourite song by 9?
    Bulletproof or I'm Not Your Toy

    How did you get in to 3?
    Watched his Glastonbury set. Realised his music was full to the brim with beauty and joy I had never noticed before.

    What was the first song you heard by 1?
    On Board. Probably their worst song. They've grown a lot since then.

    What is your favourite song by 4?
    Probably When The Leaves Have Fallen. It has the potential to upset me though.

    How many time have you seen 9 live?
    Neveeerr.

    What is a good memory you have concerning 2?
    Listening to Unless It's Kicks for about the 5th time but really hearing the lyrics and getting butterflies because it made so much sense to me and felt like my brain had written it without me knowing.

    Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?
    Nah, they're a happy band.

    What is your favourite album of 5?
    Heh, they only have one.

    How many times have you seen 8 live?
    Another never!

    What is your favourite album of 1?
    They too, only have the one.

    The Purple Bottle. Remains one of me absolute favourites.
