List your top ten artists and answer the following questions about them.
Top 10 (of my own, not necessarily on last.fm, i fucked this up :/)
01. Tiger Lou
02. Sonata Arctica
03. Pearl Jam
05. The Strokes
06. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
07. Red Hot Chili Peppers
01. First song you heard by 6?
I honestly wish I knew exactly. But I'm guessing somewhere between Whatever happened to my rock'n'roll (Punk song) and Spread Your Love
. Or then I'm again utterly wrong and it's actually Ain't No Easy Way
(at the Filter acoustic sessions, even).
02. Favourite album of 2?
Silence although I'm really tempted to say Winterheart's Guild
03. Favourite lyric that 5 has sung?
"Two can be complete without the rest of the world" on Red Light
04. Times you've seen 4 live?
I saw Muse once in Helsinki. Tis the best gig I've ever been to so far. And yet not the best for them.
05. Favourite song by 7?
I have to pick one of each album that I've listened to because there are too many favourites, sorry :/Behind the Sun
, on The Uplift Mofo Party PlanTaste the Pain
, on Mother's MilkBlood Sugar Sex Magik
, on Blood Sugar Sex MagicMy Friends
, on One Hot MinuteEasily
, on CalifornicationMinor Thing
, on By the Way
06. Good memory you have considering the music of 10?
I borrowed Parachutes
from a cousin and listened to it for about two weeks nonstop. I still love it endlessly. My sister was annoyed I listened to it because she had bought it for my birthday and she reckoned I kinda ruined the surprise. But I was still oh so happy to get the album for myself!
07. A song by 3 that makes you sad?Garden
08. Favourite lyric that 2 has sung?
"I'm king of the land, I'm a ruler of seas, I'd give it away in a moment. If I only had one moment I'd give a kingdom for just one more day" on Kingdom for a Heart
09. Favourite song by 9?PDA
, on Turn on the Bright LightsC'mere
, on Antics
10. How did you get into 3?
This is really weird. I was in a grocery store and found Yield
there in the midprice cd's. There it was, sitting alongside the likes of katrihelenas and einogröns and looked a hell of a lot more interesting than the rest of the cd's there. I took it home and gave it great love and endless listening. Later I found out I had, of course, heard Alive once or twice before the Yield surprise in the store but it was when I didn't know who performed it.
11. First song you heard by 1?Nova Lee
12. Favourite song by 4?
I canNOT answer favourite song questions! So, again, here's a list of them by albums:
Sunburn, on ShowbizDark Shines
, on Origin of SymmetryHyper Chondriac Music
, on Hullabaloo SoundtrackStockholm Syndrome
, on AbsolutionMap of the Problematique
, on Black Holes and Revelations
13. Times you've seen 9 live?
I have seen Interpol live a grand total of nil times.
14. Good memory concerning 2?
I hated them at first, except for Victoria's Secret
. My friends forced me to come with them to see the band play their annual gig in their hometown. It blew me away. They sound so much better live than on record, I don't get it. And the atmosphere was fantastic, you could see that they loved to play in their home. I turned from their hater into their lover overnight and they're still one of the very few bands I have in common with those friends of mine.
15. Song of 8 that makes you sad?Peeping Tom
16. Favourite album of 5?Is This It
17. Favourite lyric 3 has sung?Alive
as a whole lyrical story. But my favourite part of it is:
Is something wrong? She said: "Of course there is. You're still alive", she said. Oh, do I deserve to be? Is that the question? And if so, if so, who answers? Who answers!?

22. Great memory concerning 9?
I got to know them through Antics
first. I was freaking out in a lovely record store in Gothenburg, Sweden, when I first got there. The prices were so low (or then I just didn't quite know yet how to convert SEK to EUR properly). Antics only cost 89 SEK and I thought that was cheap and besides, it was high time I got to know Interpol. I took it to my place and tried to get it out of the cool white cardboard cover and got frustrated cause it seemed impossible! I had to use various tools and managed it eventually with the cover being intact. But it was worth the hassle as the album was a little piece of heaven when I finally got to listen to it.
