I started redoing this thing, which I did a while ago and found some minor insight into my music tastes and history. But then I started getting the same results again, because the questions repeat themselves for different numbers, and some bands get the same thing asked of them as last time. So for this one, I'm going to use my top 50 from the last 12 months.
1. How did you get into 31? Lucero
My brother started getting into this country-punk music, at the same time as I decided that I'd see what the deal was with Johnny Cash, so I was sort of co-opted into it. I listened to (and fucking loved
) Ben Nichols
' Last Pale Light In the West
, so I decided to see what the deal was with his band.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Muse
No clue. Probably Butterflies and Hurricanes
3. What's your favourite lyric by 29? Gogol BordelloUltimate
: There was never any good old days / They are today, they are tomorrow / It's a stupid thing we say / Cursing tomorrow with sorrow.
