    I don't usually do memes on Five Dollar Radio, but it's a fun one. I stole this from lism. If you have a Last.FM account, take your top ten artists and answer these few questions:

    My top ten (at the time I wrote this):
    Paul Westerberg
    The Replacements
    Neko Case
    Townes Van Zandt
    Ryan Adams
    Bruce Springsteen
    Vulgar Boatmen
    Teddy Thompson

    What was the first song you ever heard by #6?
    I think it was "Don't Be Sad." I know that's sort of counting backwards in Whiskeytown's (short) career, but that sounds about right.
    What is your favorite album by #2?
    Oh easy one. Tim. It actually isn't the first album I bought by the Replacements, but it's the one that stuck. The one that made me say, "Yes, this is the music I'm supposed to be listening to." (Here. I'm not going to explain it again.)
    What is your favorite lyric #5 has sung?
    Hmmm... I think the "fuck me up, steal my records" line in "Come Pick Me Up. …

    It´s late, and hey! we all need to sleep, so today there will be a short text. All I can say is this guy wrote some amazing songs, had a nice voice, wrote poetry, looked good and had the coolest name.

    Townes Van Zandt For The Sake of The Song

    Why does she sing her sad songs for me, I'm not the one
    To tenderly bring her soft sympathy, I've just begun
    To see my way clear and it's plain if I stop I will fall
    I can lay down a tear for her pain, just a tear and that's all
    What does she want me to do
    She says that she knows that moments are rare
    I suppose that it's true
    Then on she goes to say I don't care and she knows that I do
    Maybe she just has to sing for the sake of the song
    Who do I think that I am to decide that she's wrong
