Of course there are *so* many answers I could give, but I give the songs that come into my head at the time.

What song or songs make you feel...


'Incommunicado', Marillion. 'Stop The Rock', Apollo 440. 'All I Need', Air. 'Is There Something I Should Know?', AllSTARS. 'The Reflex', Duran Duran. 'I Take The Dice', Duran Duran. 'Pinky Blue', Altered Images. 'American Dream', Jakatta. 'Destination Eschaton', The Shamen. 'Big Area', Then Jericho. 'Wind Power', Thomas Dolby.

'Street Spirit (Fade)', Radiohead. 'Icicle' and 'Cornflake Girl', Tori Amos. 'Buried In The Sand', 'Do You Believe In Shame?' and 'Big Bang Generation', Duran Duran. Anything by The Cranberries. 'Messages', OMD. 'Lullaby', Shawn Mullins. 'Iris', The Goo Goo Dolls. Almost anything by Placebo. 'Blasphemous Rumours', Depeche Mode. 'Love Of The Common People', Paul Young. 'Army Dreamers', Kate Bush. 'Hand In Glove', The Smiths.

'Innamoramento', Mylene Farmer. 'Linger', The Cranberries. 'We Could Leave Right Now', Oysterband. 'Just Like Heaven', The Cure. 'Jessie', Joshua Kadison.

...like dancing?
Too many things to list. No, really. It's *music* - what else is it there for?

'Commercial For Levi', Placebo. 'Iris', The Goo Goo Dolls. To an extent, 'Lullaby', The Cure. 'Michael You've Got A Lot To Answer For', Duran Duran.

'Stay Another Day', East 17. 'Jessie', Joshua Kadison. 'Ebenezer Goode', The Shamen. 'Do You See The Light?', Snap! 'Magician Man', Kajagoogoo. 'The Power Of Love', Frankie Goes To Hollywood. 'Every You Every Me', Placebo. 'Africa', Toto. There are so many more. Pretty much everything that charted in 93/94/95. Pop music. Rah!

Anything May plays - metal of the Sepultura school of scream-as-though-someone's-ripping-your-guts-out-through-your-throat. Most things by Cradle Of Filth, much as I like them. Eh...so predictable I know, but I can't think of anything else.

Are there any songs or artists you can only listen to on your own?
Tori Amos, Placebo, Rufus Wainwright (so far). Music that makes me cry, rather than exultant, is always music to be listened to on my own.

What's the first song you can remember hearing?
Honestly? 'The One And Only', by Chesney Hawkes.

What was the first single you ever bought?
I don't think I ever bought singles until I started collecting records, so it was almost certainly either 'Africa' by Toto or 'Cars' by Gary Numan.

What's your favourite music video?
Such a hard question because I watch so many...'Pure Morning', Placebo, or 'Hey Boy Hey Girl' by The Chemical Brothers...'Rio' of course...I don't know.

What song evokes the strongest memory for you?
It's a tie! 'Iris' by The Goo Goo Dolls, and 'Innamoramento' by Mylene Farmer.

Have you ever fallen in love to a song?
Yes. The Mylene Farmer song above, for one.

What's your least favourite song?
Yes, ok, it's an impossible question to answer. But there aren't that many songs I really *hate*...'Can't Get You Out Of My Head', by Kylie Minogue, is one of them. As is 'My Heart Will Go On' by Celine Dion.

Who do you think is the most overrated singer/group ever?
Probably Nirvana. Either them or Radiohead.

Who do you think is the most underrated?
Menswe@r! Really.

What's the most unexpected band, artist or song that you like?
Er...I don't know. I always expect myself to suddenly start liking something bizarre. Most unexpected song that I like at the moment - certainly took me by surprise - is 'Ride Wid Us' by the So Solid Crew. It's got the Nightrider theme in the background. What can I say?

    So I was just thinking, ugh, I'm too crazy to post another song, why would I even bother anyway, when I was suddenly reminded of a track I had on Now…

  • (no subject)

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

  • (no subject)

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
