stolen from someone I forgot the name...

1. How did you get into 29? Joy Division
A friend of mine gave me a tape with Ice Age and I kept listening to it all day long... I fell in love with that song and then, years later, I found the 4 cd box Heart and Soul and bought it... only my copy came with cds 1, 2, 4 and 4... no 3... which, today, I think is the best of the collection... I had to complain until I was blue in the mouth (Monty Python reference, anyone?) so I could get a complete copy with cd # 3 in it! : )
oh, the memories... lol


2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Bad Brains
Probably something off I Against I or Quickness, which, I HATED! I have this cousin which is a HUGE Bad Brains fan and he kept trying to make me like it, only I hated HR's voice and could never stand 5 seconds of it (with that in mind, it was probably something off Quickness, which, til this day, kinda puts me off when compared to I Against I stuff)...


3. What's your favorite lyric by 33? SSoM
Well... all of them, since they're mine! lol


4. How did you get into 49? Grateful Dead
It was most probably Dupree's Diamond Blues or else Doin' That Rag... great songs, by the way...


5. How many albums by 13 do you own? The Young Gods
All of them but the new one... this is one of the very few bands I actually buy the cds when they come out instead of simply downloading them off the web... I saw them live last month with their acoustic set and it was unforgettable...


6. What is your favorite song by 50? Queens of the Stone Age
Probably Everybody Knows That You're Insane... also worthy of mention are First It Giveth and Hanging Tree.


7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad? Skinny Puppy
Not at all... I like them, but don't take them that seriously... but, not to leave this one blank, I'll say this: all of their new crappy stuff makes me ultra sad because I hate to see a great band becoming SHIT.


8. What is your favorite song by 15? Flying Saucer Attack
This is a hard one, since FSA is one of my all time favorite bands... it's either My Dreaming Hill or Suncatcher... still, they have many, many great songs... too bad they called it a day long ago...


9. What is your favorite song by 5? The Legendary Pink Dots
These "favorite songs" question are simply too hard to answer... well... the It's Raining In Heaven version of Poppy Day was the one that got me into them so I'll stick to that one.


10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? NoMeansNo
None make me happy, but MANY make giggle or even laugh out loud...


11. What is the worst song by 40? The Beach Boys
Easy... the hip hop remix of Surfin' USA...


12. What is your favorite song by 10? The Lemonheads
Too many... Rockin Stroll, Bit Part, Alison's Starting to Happen, It's All True, If i could talk... far too many...


13. What is a good memory you have involving 30? Anthrax
Kinda funny to look for good memories regarding thrash metal bands, but I do have a lot of them since that's what I was listening for most of my growing up days... I have a particular memory I like a lot involving Anthrax... I was walking along a beach listening to the Sound of White Noise album and there was this huge stone along the shore and I climbed it alone and sat there, at the top, listening to Black Lodge and watching the Sun go down... there you have it... pretty nice memory if you ask me... lol


14. What is your favorite song by 38? Ministry
None stand out in particular... like most of them equally I guess...


15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy? Einstürzende Neubauten
Happy? No... though I love 'em, no song has that power of making me happy... I mean, sometimes it's good to know that there are people making such great music around the world, but that's about it...


16. Is there a song by 25 that makes you sad? Spooky Clouds
lol... no... not really...


17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23? Dinosaur Jr.
Can't really tell... but it was probably Little Fury Things, since it was You're Living All Over Me that got me into them...


18. What's your favorite lyric by 11? Robert Pollard
This is absolute top class: (Slick as Snails)

Be drawn to what's wrong and believe everyone
go ahead touch your nose & off you go up and run

And now comes yet another
the next dose of real freedom
I guess the wait is over
you sat here long enough
your personal triumph is coming up

Piss away again throwing caution to the wind
telling lies to friends

Be strong in your aim map your course and set sail
but know well life is quick and very slick
slick as snails

I contemplate an ocean
at rest or still in motion
a testimonial quest
gorilla of your dreams
and speedy exit schemes
in "Quips for Queens"

The imprint where you sat
dig the ripples caused by that
I can ride them cut
out into the sea where the others cannot be
you keep sliding out
crafted, launched and steered
to where all systems are cleared
you'll be hiding out

35. What was the first song you ever heard by 34? Walter Franco
Mixturação. This is kind of an interesting story... I got Ou Nao album in the first place as a gift for Edward Ka Spel from The Legendary Pink Dots at his request... me, being brazilian and all, should feel ashamed that it was him, an englishman, that directed my attention to one of the most underrated and unheard (but most talented) brazilian artist ever.
