    1. How does 2 make you feel?
    Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box - Puts me in a wonderful trance of sorts. The sound effects and Thom Yorke's voice just intertwine so perfectly.

    2. To whom would you sing/play 24?
    2 + 2 = 5 (The Lukewarm.) - I'd play it to our government. Then maybe (not) they'd do something about all the problems in the world.

    3. Is there a way 15 could make you happy?
    Trippy Green Skull - Always makes me happy, no matter what. Dan Deacon is the happiness wizard.

    4. Would you dance to 25?
    South Carolina - I'd dance for money to try to replace my dented bike.

    5. What's the best thing about 8?

    6. Does 20 inspire you?
    Autobahn - Hell yes. It inspires me to take a long scenic drive in the country and forget how much gas I'm probably paying for.

    7. Does 12 remind you of someone you know?
    Please - Yeah, but I'd rather not say. :P

    8. What's your favourite line from the lyrics of 9 (if there are any lyrics)?
  • Museek Surveigh

    Sadly, I'm the kind of person you enjoys both doing/reading these kind of things. Anyway, here we go.
    (incase of ties, I'll just pick the one I want)

    1. How did you get into 29? The Aquabats
    -My brother got into them about 2 years ago, and I basically copy everything he does.

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Blink 182

    I think it was ALL THE SMALL THINGS, it was pretty big when I was in fifth
    or sixth grade.

    3. What’s your favorite lyric by 33? Steve Burns
    -shit... I'm not going to lie, I don't really know any of the words to his songs. I listen to him enough for him to be my number33, but usually it's while I'm busy checking emails and I'm not paying attention to words. I like the song 'Mighty Little Man' though.
    (Haha! I'm sure this doesn't count, but I've always beena big fan of the mail song of Blue's Clues :D)

    4. What is your favorite album by 49? Meatloaf
    -Ha, I grew up listening to Meatloaf with my dad…
  • TOTW: John Linnell (TMBG) - South Carolina

    I am a huge They Might Be Giants fan, right back to when they were in the UK charts with Birdhouse in Your Soul, which I bought as a single. Then things went quiet for a while, there was a video for Istanbul (Not Constantinople) one Saturday morning on one of the few music video shows we used to get, but I only saw it once and then I never heard anything more of them for years and years.

    They never got big in the UK but meanwhile my cousin got into them, somehow he got their stuff from America I think, but he sort of re-introduced me to them and discovered that they had a huge back catlogue of work going way.

    South Carolina is actually by John Linnell, one of the Johns in the group, but don't fret, this track sounds exactly like a TMBG track.

    I don't know how it is with them in the USA, I think they are what you guys call a University Campus band, which I imagine means they get played a lot on campus radio and do tours. I actually like the fact that they never got big and I'm sure…
