1.How did you get into 29?
- Daft Punk
... Even at the size of a foam extinguisher I loved Da Funk and Harder/Better/Faster/Stronger due MTV. But the real love flamed up 3 years ago on a wintery night, walking from rehearsals and Discovery pumped warm blood through my ears to keep me warm.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
- Oh Blonde Redhead
! One of my closer friends introduced me to them with The Dress from 23 and since then they have become one of the more important bands emotionally. They are like theraphy to me.
3. What's your favorite lyric by 33?
- Antony and the Johnsons
. Isn't there a phrase I wouldn't love by them? Especially when Antony Hegarty lifts those words beyond any emotion imaginable. You just have to feel those words. And this part especially makes me shiver every time I hear it:
"Epilepsy is dancing / She's the Christ now departing / And I'm finding my rhythm / As I twist in the snow "
4. How did you get into 49?
- The Antlers
. I wouldn't have fallen in love with the Antlers if I didn't have to say a bittersweet goodbye to a one friend I had bonded quite close to. And Hospice was the perfect solution to those emotions: left unspoken and unsolved.
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
. I own Showbiz, Origin of Symmetry, Absolution, Black Holes & Revelations, Hullabaloo and H.A.A.R.P. so it is 6. The Resistance is utterly shit, don't want that to infect my collection.
6. What is your favorite song by 50?

8. What is your favorite song by 15?
- The Knife
. I have to admit that this is a chose between a chocolate waterfal and a cloud made of marshmallows... Silent House or We Share Our Mothers' Health. There is a myriad of songs that should be mentioned here.
9. What is your favorite song by 5?
- Massive Attack
. It has to be Angel. It is Massive Attack at their best with that dark athmosphere and the bassline to make your speakers go boom boom boom. And Andy Horace. Do I need to mention more? This is art people. This is music.
10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy?
. Agoraphobia. It takes me to my secret place and makes me feel happy and full of energy every time I visit that place. Lockett Pundt's comforting voice uplifts the mood in seconds.
11. What is the worst song by 40?
- Broken Social Scene
. What an uneasy mission to accomplish... There aren't any bad songs or even songs I wouldn't like on some level. The worst of the best is - let's say - Shampoo Suicide because...
12. What is your favorite song by 10?
- Nine Inch Nails
. A tough one as well. Closer is the one that brought me to Nine Inch Nails and it's by far the "the" Nine Inch Nails song. I wan't to fuck you like an animal! *giggles*
13. What is a good memory you have involving 30?
- Crystal Castles

14 What is your favorite album by 38?

16. Is there a song by 25 that makes you sad?
- The Crash
. Fireworks makes my eyes glossy every friking time. Teemu Brunila is a genius when it comes to making songs to make people sad and teary eyed. Also Sugared because it was the last song on their setlist on their farewell tour :(
17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23?
. You Look So Fine was the first one (and the best <3) but since I've played Gran Turismo on Playstation 1 and it's soundtrack included As Heaven Is Wide.. I don't recall hearing it, but how could I have not heard it?
18. What's your favorite lyric by 11?
- Sufjan Stevens
. Sufjan Stevens is a god. You could quote any of his songs and it would be the best lyrics ever written. The last lines of John Wayne Gacy, Jr. are the most truthtful and sincere words ever sung:
"And in my best behavior
I am really just like him
Look beneath the floor boards
For the secrets I have hid "

26. What is the first song you ever heard by 26?
27. What is your favorite album by 3?
- Arcade Fire
. NOOOOOO!!! Do I really have to choose? Don't I have any options or alternates? Bugger.... I have to say I love each and every album by Arcade Fire for different reasons. They are perfect. But if I really do have to choose, let it be Funeral and only because it has Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) which is the greatest song ever. Once again, no exceptions.

31. How many times have you seen 17 live?
. I have never seen Interpol, which makes me depressed. Carlos D. is gone, so I'm not sure will I even want to see them anymore. If someone could invent a time machine or get me a DeLorean so I could go to 2002 and see them in the times of Turn on the Bright Lights.
32. Is there a song by 44 that makes you happy?
have the unique ability to make happy and emotional electronic music. Miss It So Much makes me shit butterflies and rainbows, Lykke Li
and Röyksopp are such a good combination.
33. How did you get into 12?
. Hmm.. I can't really remember how. It was when I had the Icelandic music phase because of Sigur Rós
and I was dying to find more similiar music. I downloaded Finally We Are No One and put it on my iPod and went to make sandwitches when Green Grass of Tunnel went on. It was an eargasm. And then múm became something I will never let go.
34. What is the worst song by 45?
- TV on the Radio
. Pick any song from their OK Calculator garbage.
35. What was the first song you ever heard by 34?
- Nelly Furtado
. I'm Like A Bird and I was, what, 9 years old? I was dying to get that album so I could repeat it to death. It took over 6 months for me to get Whoa, Nelly! but when I got it I was surprised I loved her other music as well. For the record: Nelly Furtado was a great artist. Whoa, Nelly! and Folklore are especially ambitious records and even more succesful. Loose and Mi Plan were to poppy, she forgot who she was :( But I still wish best for her because I'm Like A Bird is the song my childhood!
36. What is the first song you ever heard by 48?
. I have no idea. It might be Overcome because I always listen to albums in the correct order.

43. What is your favorite song by 24?
- Beach House
. I. Love. Norway. I never imagined Beach House could ever write a song that striking that I would surrender by it's magnifigance in less than 10 seconds. Good memories of the year 2010.

47. What is your favorite album by 4?

Music doesn't get any prettier than this and I sure do hope they play this in the heaven.

50. What is your favorite song by 20?
. Dancing On My Own. I have lived through that moment. And it was painful as hell. I could have died. That night I was dancing on my own and watching a loved one getting action with someone else. Thanks to Robyn I overcame the issue and now can stand proud and dance on my own with no shame. There's no shame to be alone on the dancefloor. At least you don't have to go through some major shit around relationships.
The best pop song I've ever heard.
