These amuse me, and so, since I'm the arbiter of content around here, I'm putting his one up ^_~ I got it from darlojo, who I don't know, but has great taste in memes ^^

This is based on my top artists as of this morning, April 21, 2009.

1. What's your favourite song by 15?
The Go! Team
Very tough choice...today, it's probably "Keys to the City"

2. How did you get into 20?
Depeche Mode
A couple of my friends were going to see them on the 86-98 tour and invited me to come along. At that point, I was hooked ^_^

3. Who is your favourite member in 1?
Well, Kylie Minogue is really the only member, so I choose her :P

4. What’s your favourite lyric bit by 29?
The Pipettes

They're not really a lyrics-driven band, but I do enjoy their theme song:
We are The Pipettes, and we've got no regrets.
If you haven't noticed yet, we're the prettiest girls you've ever met.


5. Have you ever seen 22 live?
Men Without Hats
Sadly, they'd broken up by the time I got into them.

6. What's your favourite album from 10?
Erasure

Probably Chorus, although I really like Nightbird too.

7. Do you own any merchandise from 3?
Saint Etienne
I bought their limited-edition fanclub-only Boxette, but that's it, I think.

8. What is a good memory you have of 7?
Beth Orton
Beth's not exactly the most cheerful artist, but I remember writing a review for Central Reservation when I was writing for Superstarcastic.com and really enjoying it.

9. Is there a member of the same age as you in 2?
New Order
They're all old enough to be my parents. Unless you feel a desperate need to count Phil Cunningham, who's six years older than me.

10. When did you first get into 8?
They Might Be Giants
Sophomore year of high school, maybe -- my two best friends were totally into Flood, and so I started listening to it too.

11. Who likes 4 along with you?
Jandek
Hehe...probably the single artist on here most disliked by other people I know. Kylen listens to him sometimes, and Becca saw him live.

12. Which song did you first hear from 16?
The Corrs
I remember "Runaway" being on the radio, although I didn't become a big fan of theirs until later.

13. What song made you fall in love with 5?
The Knife
I bought Silent Shout based solely on reviews, without having heard any of it, but I was totally blown away by both "Silent Shout" and "We Share Our Mothers' Health"

14. Which song do you not like by 18?
The Echoing Green
I don't know that there's any of their studio songs I dislike, but they've put out a handful of pretty awful remixes.

15. Why do you like 14's songs?
Johann Sebastian Bach
I'm a sucker for counterpoint. Plus, it's the piano student in me.

16. Where did you first hear 6?
CUB
On a mix CD that my friend Laura made for me. She is awesome.

17. How long was 19 a band before you liked them?
Hilary Duff
I have to sort of adjust the question, but I started listening to her when her first non-seasonal album, Metamorphosis came out. I didn't follow her at all before that

18. Does 13 have a song that gives you a bad memory?
Kavin Hoo
No...it's what I was listening to when my wife and I were dating, so those are the memories it has.

19. When did you get into 17?
Pet Shop Boys
Maybe a year or two after Very came out. I was towards the beginning of high school, and my friend Matt loved them.

20. How long have you been into 9?
Crowded House
I had a friend who played me a couple of their songs in college, but I didn't become a big fan until maybe two or three years ago.

21. If 11 had a concert 300 miles away, would you drive there to see them?
The Cure
That would be like...New York City, maybe? If it were earlier in their career, probably, but not with the current lineup.

22. How many CDs do you own of 12?
The Church
I've got their albums in digital form, not CD, but I've got eight if I'm counting right.

23. Does 21 have a song that makes you cry?
Kasey Chambers
"Bluebird," no question.

25. Does 23 have a song that makes you smile?
Julie de Azevedo
Sorensen and I used to play "State of the Heart" over and over again just to hear the 80's-style guitar note at the end of the bridge. It still gives me great joy.

26. What's the last song you've listened to from 28?
The Moody Blues
I think it was "Procession," although I've got a bad recording of it.

27. Is there a song by 32 that you've listened to more than 30 times?
Ann Winsborn
"Kiss of a Butterfly," "La La Love on My Mind,"...probably most of Pink-Collar-Crime, actually.

28. Any song by 50 that you've only listened to once?
The Clash
Not that I can think of.

29. Is there a song you are sick of hearing by 24?
The White Stripes
"Seven Nation Army" got a bit overplayed for me.

30. What song got you into 40?
Elvis Presley
I remember loving "Return to Sender" as a kid.

31. What is your favourite single by 25?
Elijah Wyman
As far as I know, he's never officially released a single, but "Why We Never Go Swimming" is my favorite song of his.

32. If 49 hated you, what would you do?
The Beatles
Well, half of them are dead, and I think I could take Ringo, so I like my odds ;)

33. What would you say if 42 or one of the members from 42 asked you out?
Aphex Twin
Much as I respect Richard D. James as an artist, I'd have to decline.

34. Would you care if 41 had a boyfriend/girlfriend?
Amber G.
Given that she's a purely digital studio creation who doesn't exist IRL, I wouldn't bother myself too much about it ;)

35. Who has the best voice in 46?
10,000 Maniacs
I actually liked Mary more than most fans did, but Natalie is probably better.

36. Do you think 26 is/are good looking?
Annbjorg Lien
She's all right I guess, but it's the Hardanger fiddles that keep me interested ^^

37. How many times have you listened to your favourite song by 36?
Ian Van Dahl
Last.fm gives me 21 plays of "Will I?"

38. How many CDs do you own of 30?
Coldplay
I have their whole catalog digitally, but the only thing I physically own is the Live 2003 CD/DVD combo.

39. Is there a song from 38 that makes you mad?
Ladytron
"Destroy Everything You Touch" is a great song to be mad to, but I don't know that it makes me mad.

40. Which member from 31 do you want to see go solo? If 31 is only one artist, what would you do if they joined a group?
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
*is laughing too hard to answer*

41. What does your favourite song from 48 remind you of?
Gary Numan
I used to play "Cars" on my guitar in my dorm room until my roommate got huffy and made me stop ^_~

42. Did you hate 43 at first?
Cascada
I actually pre-ordered their first album before hearing any of it. But I did like it when I got it and played it.

43. Does your best friend also listen to 33?
Sam Eddington
I judge my friends by whether they're willing to listen to me sing or not ^_~

44. Do you think your parents would like 37?
Belle and Sebastian
My mom might until she listened to the words...I know my dad really likes "The Blues are Still Blue."

45. Does 47 have a song that makes you want to dance?
Collective Soul
I love them, but they're not really a dance band.

46. Have you ever seen 34 in person?
The Human League
I have, actually, in 2003, about a year after Secrets came out. I was right in the front, and it was awesome.

47. Do you like 44's name?
Blur
It's not bad, actually.

48. Is there someone in 45 that you want to go out with?
Lasgo
Being happily married, I'd have to say no. The replacement singer is cuter than Evi, but she doesn't sing as well.

49. Do you know anyone that hates 39?
David Bowie
Not that I can think of.

50. Have you ever danced to a song from 35?
September
Of course! Practically any of hers will do.
