"I buried my first victim when I was nineteen
Went through her bedroom and the pockets of her jeans
And found her letters that said so many things
That really hurt me bad."
-- how many times have you seen 4 live?
Not once. He died a few years before I started listening to him.
-- what is your favourite song by 7?
'Testament to Youth in Verse'. Definitely.
-- what is a good memory you have considering the music of 10?
Travelling. I listened to The Woods album when I was catching a plane over winter break. I felt cool.
-- is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
Oh god. Probably 'Which Will'.
-- what is your favourite lyric that 2 has sung?
From 'Lover's Spit':
”You know it's time
That we grow old and do some shit.” I don't know. I remember feeling really incredible when he said that in concert.
-- what is your favourite song by 9?
'A Man / Me / Then Jim'.
-- how did you get in to 3?
I first heard him on the Garden State soundtrack. I learned that song for guitar, 'One of These Things First', and then my GF at the time gave me 'Way To Blue'. I was hooked.
-- what was the first song you heard by 1?
Haha, 'Such Great Heights'. From Garden State, again.
-- what is your favourite song by 4?
-- how many time have you seen 9 live?
Once! I saw Rilo at First Ave back in February 2005, and might be seeing Jenny as a solo artist there again in a few months. Maybe not though.
-- what is a good memory you have concerning 2?
Their concert. Best concert I've ever been to.
-- is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?
'Anything You Want'. They're a pretty upbeat band, but that one gets me down.
-- what is your favourite album of 5?
Oof. Ghosts of the Great Highway.
-- what is your favourite lyric that 3 has sung?
In 'From the Morning':
”And now we rise
And we are everywhere
And now we rise from the ground
And see she flies
And she is everywhere
See she flies all around."
-- what is your favourite song of 1?
If I can choose a cover, 'Waiting for Superman'. But since I won't, 'Each Coming Night'.
-- what is your favourite song of 10?
-- how many times have you seen 8 live?
Ugh, none. They came to town back in November, but it was 21+.
-- what is your favourite album of 1?
Our Endlessly Numbered Days.
-- what is a great memory you have considering 9?
Seeing them with my best friend. That was the first REAL concert I'd ever been to. I remember they performed 'Wires and Waves', and it was incredible.
