    Yes, I just found another one of these. Put your music on shuffle.

    If you reached the top of Mount Everest, you would scream:
    Björk - Possibly Maybe
    Guess I'm not sure if I'm really there.

    The next time you stand up in front of a group of people, you'll say:
    Bad Manners - Lorraine (Extended 12 Inch Version-Bonus)
    Wow, profound!

    Your favorite thing to say when drunk is:
    The Cooper Temple Clause - Did You Miss Me?
    Kinda creepy thing to say, a bit like 'are you looking at me?

    Your message to the world:
    The Polyphonic Spree - Section 12 (Hold Me Now)
    A cry for love

    When you think of your best friend you think:
    Spandau Ballet - To Cut a Long Story Short
    It is a song that one of my best friends likes.

    Your deepest secret:
    Elvis Presley - A Big Hunk o' Love
    Happy it's not my desire...

    Your innermost desire:
    Crowded House - Hole in the River (live)
    Suicide? Not really.

    Your oldest memory makes you think:
    Toontje Lager - Viel Die Maar
    It's a song where someone hopes the A-bomb is dropped, so...
  • Top 50 Artists - related questions

    31. Dez. 2009, 20:52 von Nallis

    Perhaps this year I will put some effort into something on some sites... Seeing as Last.fm is music, this seems a good place for it, seeing as it has helped me endlessly in my quest to find new music.

    So, I stole this from somewhere, cos I r a thieving child I am... but it is questions relating to the top 50 artists if I understand correctly, so here goes...

    (I do get the feeling that I have more of a top 20 to what I listen to most but nevertheless!)


    How did you get into 31?
    Imogen Heap
    I honestly have no idea, all I can recall is having an album of hers, (Speak for Yourself) and it coming on the iTunes party shuffle thingy while playing WoW and I got sickeningly hooked. Very strange stuff!

    What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
    I can't be certain at all, I know it was off one of the Metal Opera albums... I didn't listen to it in order at first because clever clogs me didn't realise >.<

    What is your favorite lyric by 29?
    Blinded by the Light - Manfred Mann
  • Joe Jackson and the Incredible Shrinking Playlist (Updated)

    Sat 19 Apr – Joe Jackson

    Some day I'm going to get to see Joe Jackson early on the American leg of one of his tours, before he's settled in and road weary. The last time I saw him, in support of Night and Day II, I'd read reviews of two-and-a-half hour shows that included an extended solo set in the middle and a scorching cover of Steely Dan's Reelin' In The Years. But by the time he got to Cleveland, the show was down to a tight two hours. It was still great, but I had to wonder if he had something against Cleveland.

    So for his show in Pittsburgh, I avoided reading reviews of previous shows. But, as it turns out, the set list was literally changed at the last minute - so I had to wonder. Perhaps I'm just cursed.

    A little background first. This was my fourth JJ show. I've seen him with a ten piece band that included a horn section (Blaze Of Glory tour), a five piece band (the Warmin' It Up club tour which rehearsed material for the soon-to-be-recorded Laughter And Lust)…

    A concert Of Joe Jackson is always like a first introduction. Although you know eachother for years, at the start there's always an uncomfortable first five minutes, in his case a first uncomfortable song.

    This time the first song of the set turned out to be Stepping Out. The sound wasn't okay, the vocals were sung as if Joe was taking a shower, but the audience loved it already. After this Joe relaxed, started to talk, made funny faces, laughted and was interacting with the people.

    With a new album out it was obvious that Joe, accompanied again by Graham Maby and Dave Houghton, would play a lot of the album. The audience wasn't disappointed with a setlist that included eight of the ten tracks. Although there were people in the audience unaware that he had released a new album recently.

    For me it was a bit disappointed that opener "Invisible Man" wasn't played, although I could understand it, since the track was on the setlist in the 2006 and 2007 tour.
