Meme Is Forever

Yes, another meme found on Tumblr. Not a lot going on right now, really. And this one's all musical.

1. What are you listening to right now?
Joe Hisaishi's score to Howl's Moving Castle.

2. What song(s) make(s) you sad?
Like a lot of nerds who never grow up, "Puff the Magic Dragon" makes me cry. Also "Baby Mine" from Dumbo. I must have some kind of separation issues. And that song about having to put that dog down. "Old Blue"?

3. What is the most annoying song in the world?
"We Are Family" by Sister Sledge. I fucking hate that song.

4. Your all time favorite band?
Band? I'm still saying Queen. But my favorite singer is David Bowie.

5. Your newly discovered band is?
I just found out that I like Forever the Sickest Kids.

6. Best female voice?
Christina Aguilera.

7. Best male voice?
Freddie Mercury. It always embarrasses me to see people attempt Queen songs on American Idol. If you aren't as good as Freddie Mercury--and you AREN'T--don't even bother to attempt it.

8. Music type you find yourself listening to most?
I guess I listen to pop or rock more than any other. Sometimes I get in moods where all I want to hear is film scores or classical for a month.

9. What do you listen to, to hype you up?
Lots of random stuff. Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" always works.

10. What do you listen to when you want to calm down?
Classical music, usually something baroque or something by Debussy. Stravinsky isn't going to make you calm, you know?

11. Last gig/concert you went to?
I went to see Siouxsie and the Banshees in concert in 1995 and that was the last time I went to one. I just don't think about going to concerts.

12. Band you find yourself listening to the most right now?
Nothing specific. I'm in another one of those moods where I'm a little tired of most of what I've been listening to. I've been listening to a lot of Muppet music lately, since I created my Muppet Music blog on Tumblr.

13. Most hated band?
The Black-Eyed Peas still piss me off.

14. Song that makes you think?
Every song sparks something, be it imagery, thoughts, or just a mood.

15. Band that you think the world should love as much as you do?
Since when do I give a shit what the world loves?

16. Coolest music video?
Ever? "Take on Me" by a-ha. I haven't seen a music video recently that I thought was really cool or interesting.

17. Music video with the most babe watch?
Again, nothing lately. I hear Christina Aguilera's working on something.

18. What do you play/would you play in the bedroom to spice things up?
T. Rex. T. Rex is great bedroom music.

19. Can you play a musical instrument?
No, damn it all.

20. Ever been in a mosh pit?
No.

21. Are you in a band?
Sure, in my mind.

23. Ever dated a musician?
Nope.

28. Do you wish yourself that you were a musician?
I'd just like to be able to play the piano.

29. Best chick band you know of?
The Runaways. And the Donnas.

31. Last song that you heard on the radio/cd...etc...?
"Doin' the Pigeon," from Sesame Street. Excitement!

32. What do you think of Classical music?
I love it. I don't understand people who don't, to be honest.

33. What do you think of Country music?
I like most of it. I like the old outlaw country stuff, but I love Dolly Parton, bluegrass, and currently I like Taylor Swift. I don't like to dismiss any musical genre.

34. What do you think of Death metal?
Honestly, I haven't heard that much of it. I'm not sure who to go to.

35. Last BIG band that you saw live?
Again, haven't been to a concert since 1995.

36. Are you a groupie?
No.

37. Do you listen to music in foreign languages?
Sure.

38. What famous musician would you like to fuck!?
That's a long, long, long list, my friend. And most of the people reading this know of my life long love for Jessica Simpson. Just to start in one place.

39. Worst concert moment?
Nothing sucky ever happened to me at a concert.

40. Funny concert moment?
Nope, nothing.

41. Sad concert moment?
Still, nothing.

42. Best local act you can think of?
Again, not a live music guy.

43. If you were a musical instrument what would you be?
A guitar. I dig guitars.

44. Do you listen to the radio?
No. I listen to my Last.fm channel, but I don't listen to the radio.

45. Do you watch music TV?
Where is there music TV?

46. Do you follow the music charts, like the top 40?
Sure. I don't think it's, like, important or anything, but I'm always interested in what's in the top 40.

47. Have you met any famous musicians?
No.

48. Are any of your friends/family/etc. musicians?
Not in a dedicated way. My sister, Mom, and Grandma play the piano, but they didn't make a career out of it, or anything.

49. Song that best describes your feelings right now?
"Hunger" by Spectre General. I need breakfast!

50. Song that describes your life?
"Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed" by David Bowie?

51. Do you know the names of all the band members that you listen to?
No, I'm sure I don't.

52. Does a musician’s physical attractiveness play a role in the music that you listen to?
No. Should it?

53. What famous musician do you want to marry?
Jessica...

53. Favourite movie sound track?
If I had to pick only one, it would be Basil Poledouris' score to Conan the Barbarian.

55. Any musician pet hates?
I do get sick of the wimpy little whiny songs that are so popular on, say, the VH1 countdown. Train is for people who've given up on getting any pleasure out of life.

56. What do your parents listen to?
My Mom likes anything in the minor key regardless of quality. I'm not sure what my Dad likes anymore.

57. What are you listening to right NOW?
Same as before.

58. Do you wear band etc T-shirts?
I have a Beatles shirt someone gave me for my birthday a couple years ago. I tend to wear shirts with Muppets and comic book characters.

59. Do you cook to music?
I don't cook as much as I should, but if I'm going to be a while, I'll put on some music.

60. Do you sing in the toilet?
In the shower, yes. All the time.
