Everybody’s Doing It – Take Me To The Nearest Cliff!

So I stole this idea from EmoIsForLuvers. What you do is put your iPod on shuffle, write down the first 25 songs that come out, and then you answer some questions. Ready to see what came out of my magic shuffle? You can hardly contain yourself, right? Well, here goes!

Yay shuffle times on your iPod! Sometimes I forget what’s in my pod. I usually put it on shuffle when I go running. It always makes for good times.

Here’s the Q & A section –

What was the first song you ever heard by 6?

Probably “One Armed Scissor.” It was a long time ago in El Paso. Everyone in El Paso was totally up ATDI bumhole because that was the cool thing to do. Good band, but then they got all crazy and did a bunch of drugs and became Mars Volta.

What is your favorite album by 2?

1983. No wait, maybe the Reset EP. That has the song “Tea Leaf Dancers.” It’s pretty magical.

What is your favourite lyric that 1 has sung?

Oh GAWD. I don’t listen to Ciara for lyrical content. It’s music I listen to before I go get crunk with my LiL John Pimp Cup!

How many times have you seen 11 live?

Yikes. Never! They do have Bollywood Night at the Hollywood Bowl and mostly I would like to go to one of those. Yay!

What is a good memory you have involving 20?

Groove Armada memories. I usually listen to GA when I am alone, and on my bike, racing about. Dodging traffic to Love Sweet Sound is pretty neat till you almost get smashed.

Is there a song by 3 that makes you sad?

I don’t think Justice makes sad songs. Their use of a giant cross, however, makes me sad. What if it fell on them?

What is your favorite lyric that 14 has sung?

Sometimes when this place gets kinda empty the sound of the breath fades with the light I think about the loveless fascination under the milky way tonight 

What is your favorite song by 19?

Bravo, Le Pour Clown. It’s crazy, like a circus of sadness. Thanks, Edith.

Who got you into 22?

The 80’s got me into The Cure. I think I just used to like them because Robert Smith used to have crazy hair and wear really big sneakers. I was tiny when they came out. This was probz around the time of Disintergration, so I was 9 but that album was the shit then and it will always be.

What was the first song you heard by 21?

Magic Spells, I think. That song is fun.

What is your favorite song by 4?

Fave Placebo song has to be Brick Shithouse or You Don’t Care About Us. SO GOOD. I love angry Placebo songs.

What is a good memory you have involving 13?

Listening to Bjork is a good memory. I used to go to my thinking rock and listen to So Broken all the time. I love that song. I loved being on my rock overlooking the ocean and just being at peace.

Is there a song by 23 that makes you sad?

Bad Religion songs don’t make me sad in particular. They just make me think about how fucked up a lot of shit is and that I need to get my hands dirty sometimes.

What is your favorite album of 15?

Space Heater. Such a good album. It has good instrumentals on it. Perfect for driving in the wastelands of America.

What is your favorite song by 8?

Fave song by the Cure? You asking me to basically eat a baby. I hope that plate of babyshanks is hot! Lovecats. Such a fun tune. It’s totally dumb, I know, but everyone used to say that song was made for me.

How many times have you seen 5 live?

I’ve seen AFI a few times live. Tee hee.

What is a good memory you have involving 25?

Having the ability to yell “Turn It Up, Faggot” is really something. It’s the name of their first album. When people ask why you screaming that at them, that’s all you have to say.

What was the first song you heard by 18?

First Misfits Song.. Hmm.. I think it was We Are 138. Me and friend used to be into old B Movies and when we found this Misfits song, we went bananas.

What is your favorite song by 17?

I have no fave Iron Maiden song. I listen to them for pure metal irony. LuLz Probably Trooper LuLz
