10 Musical Artists Quiz
The last meme was surprisingly unsatisfying. So, unsurprisingly, I have to do another.
List 10 musical artists (or bands) you like, in no specific order (do this before reading the questions below). Really, donít read the questions below until you pick your ten artists!!!
1. The Beatles
2. John Mayer
3. Steely Dan
4. Jason Mraz
5. Adam Lambert
7. Backstreet Boys
9. Bon Jovi
10. Dashboard Confessional
Alrighty I think I have a decent enough mix to withstand whatever comes. Haha.
What was the first song you ever heard by 6 [Timbaland]?
I don't honestly think I would know! I do believe he has a finger in practically any R&B song with a syncopated beat these days. The first identifiable song I suppose would be "Sexyback", with Justin Timbalake.
What is your favorite song of 8 [Pitbull]?
Right now, "Fuego". Don't ask why, I couldn't tell you.
What kind of impact has 1 [The Beatles] left on your life?
Erm, it taught me that somehow, psychedelic drugs and music are an awesome mix. Consider "Come Together", for one. You gotta have been high as a kite to have written that, but I love it.
What is your favorite lyric of 5 [Adam Lambert]?
"I was born with glitter on my face, my baby clothes made of leather and lace", from "Surefire Winners".
How many times have you seen 4 [Jason Mraz] live?
Twice. First at Singfest 2008, then at his own concert at the Indoor Stadium, 2009/
What is your favorite song by 7 [Backstreet Boys]?
Now THAT is hard. I couldn't even give you my favourite song in each album! I will go with "I Want I That Way" right now, for sentimental reasons and the memories it brings back of the Australia geography trip in 1999. Not because it is one of the best songs around, though it is thoroughly enjoyable.
Is there any song by 3 [Steely Dan] that makes you sad?
What is your favorite song by 9 [Bon Jovi]?
Wow. Terribly hard to try to do that for a band with this many classics. "It's My Life" always has a soft spot in my heart, because it makes me think of Sec 4 days. "Everyday" makes me think of Henghwa, and is therefore another sentimental favourite. But in terms of best arrangements and songs that really rock my socks, give me "Livin' on a Prayer", "Bed of Roses" and "Always".
When did you first get into 2?
After watching him play the ridiculous "Your Body is a Wonderland" improv guitar solo at the 2003 Grammy Awards. Yes, this is a specifically remembered incident in my life.
How did you get into 3 [Steely Dan]?
I just seemed to remember them from childhood. "The Fez" was somehow always imprinted in my memory.
What is your favorite song by 4?
Hmmmm... not just one!! I can't do it. How about, "Dreamlife of Rand MacNally", "O Lover", "Butterfly, "Dynamo of Volition"?
How many times have you seen 9 [Bon Jovi] live?
Never. *Sniffle*. One day, just you wait.
What is a good memory concerning 2 [John Mayer]?
Choreographing for Evo 2009 and bonding with my cast mates over it. Long talks with Jess, my JM soulmate. Drives in Halifax with the first semester crew, playing Why Georgia on the radio. Did you only allow me ONE good memory?
Is there a song by 8 [Pitbull] that makes you sad?
What is your favorite song of 1 [The Beatles]?
How did you become a fan of 10 [Dashboard Confessional]?
After hearing "Vindicated" off the Spiderman 2 soundtrack.
