I have pilfered this from an unsuspecting last.fmer and adapted it to suit myself, cos I'm like that! But then he had pilfered it from another unsuspecting last.fmer.. So I say pilfer away guys, I deserves it!

Dunno if anyone will ever read it, or care, but I had fun so it's all chocolate sauce.. :-)

Name your top 10 most played bands on

1 Regina Spektor
2 Josh Ritter
3 The Dresden Dolls
4 Elliott Smith
5 Ani DiFranco
6 Duke Special
7 The Magnetic Fields
8 Hem
9 Cowboy Junkies
10 The Postal Service

And then answer 13 questions about them..

1. What was the first song you heard of 6?
I think it might have been Some Things Make Your Soul Feel Clean, or possibly Portrait. It was at a gig- he hooked me right out of a conversation, and I was glued

2. What is your favourite lyric that 5 has sung?
You guys have heard of Ani, right? Her lyrics are stories. I couldn’t possibly pick one but I do really like the lyrics to Fuel, an excerpt being:
I keep hearing that same damn song everywhere I go!/ Maybe I should put a bucket over my head/ and a marshmallow in each ear/ and stumble around for another dumb-numb week for another hum-drum hit song to appear

3. What is your favourite song by 7?
Chicken With Its Head Cut Off always makes me laugh. I could pick many from 69 Love Songs though

4. Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
Not really. First Orgasm is kind of sad but mostly the Dolls make me very happy!

5. What is your favourite lyric that 2 has sung?
If I could trace the line that ran/ between your smile and your slight of hand/ I’d guess that you’d put something up my sleeve/ Now every time I see your face/ the bells ring in a far-off place/ We can find each other this way, I believe.
from Come And Find Me

6. How did you get in to 3?
A friend made me a mix tape that had one of their tracks on it. I fell in love with it, and then with him

7. What was the first song you heard by 1?
The gorgeous Us. Same friend, different mix tape ;)

8. What is a good memory you have concerning 2?
I have been to see this wonderful, stellar performer many times but nothing compares to holding hands with Lainey while we heard the crushing crescendo of Thin Blue Flame live for the first time and being rocked to our cores

9. What is your favourite album of 1?
God. I’ve owned Soviet Kitsch for longer but Begin to Hope is wonderful too. Pass!

10. What is your favourite lyric that 4 has sung?
Burning every bridge that I cross/ To find some beautiful place to get lost
from Let’s Get Lost

11. What is your favourite song of 10?
Probably Such Great Heights. Me likey

12. How many times have you seen 8 live?
As yet I havnae

13. What is a great memory you have considering 9?
Sorry, not telling!
