Now answer the questions according to the numbers:
What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
The first track on Say I Am You, Take It from Me, was the first I heard by The Weepies; but, more accurately, I found them because had the track Herons by the lead singer's prior band, Hummingfish, on an old mix CD.
What is your favorite album of 2?
What is your favorite lyric that 5 has sung?
Oddly, I don't have one, because (I've heard) Andrew Bird writes his lyrics to fit his music, not for profundity. A lot of them don't even make sense, so, I don't pay much attention to their meaning. With most artists, though, I love listening to and quoting the lyrics.
