27 nov 2011, 20:211. How did you get into 29?

Warrant - Dog Eat Dog

The Beatles - That's a tough one. I'll go with a tie between The Long and Winding Road and I've Got a Feeling.

Britney Spears - ALL of her songs make me happy! But I'll go with Toxic cause it's my all time fave of hers.
11. What is your favourite album by 40?
Barbara Mandrell - Hmmm I don't know if I have a favorite. I've really only listened to her discography once thru so far. But I think I like her late 70s/early 80s stuff the most.

Billy Joel - Another tough one. He has so many great songs. I'll go with Two Thousand Years.
13. What is a good memory you have involving 30?
Mitch Hedberg - Awww. He was such a funny guy. So sad that he's no longer with us. I remember first seeing him on Comedy Central with his donut bit - "I give you the money, you give me the donut. End of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this." My husband and I laughed our asses off.
14. What is your favourite song by 38?
Hanson - Penny & Me!!!
15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy?
Prince - Of course! He has tons of great tunes. I'll go with Endorphinmachine. I can't sit still when I hear that song.
16. How many times have you seen 25 live?
Demi Lovato - Never seen her.
17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23?

Jewel - This Way
19. Who is your favourite member of 1?
Fall Out Boy - Patrick Stump
20. Have you ever seen 14 live?
Miley Cyrus - Yes actually. I saw her on Oprah when I was in the audience. She performed with Joan Jett. But as for an actual concert of hers I have not.
21. What is a good memory involving 27?
Foo Fighters - Hmmm I guess just my husband's enthusiasm for them. That kind of made me a fan too. And the first time I listened to the Wasting Light album and fell in love with it.
22. What is your favourite song by 16?
Crystal Gayle - The Sound Of Goodbye
23. What is the first song you ever heard by 49?

Sugarland - I don't think there is one I dislike. I'm not too crazy about Joey I guess.
27. What is your favourite album by 3?
Linda Ronstadt - Mad Love...although I think Get Closer actually has more plays in my library. I'd say that's either a very close second or a tie.
28. What is your favourite song by 2?
Kiss - I used to always say it was Hard Luck Woman but I think it might actually be Mr. Speed. Maybe another tie? It's so hard to choose lol.
29. What was the first song you ever heard by 32?
Dwight Yoakam - I think it was probably Little Sister when I saw him back in the 80s on The Nashville Network. I did not like him back then. I didn't become a fan til way later.
30. What is your favourite song by 8?
Stevie Nicks - Sleeping Angel from the Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack.
31. How many times have you seen 17 live?
ABBA - None. And never gonna happen unless they ever decide to do a reunion which is unlikely.
32. Is there a song by 44 that makes you happy?
Selena Gomez & the Scene - Pretty much all of them. I like happy pop music. I'll go with We Own the Night (feat. Pixie Lott)
33. What is you favourite album by 12?
Trisha Yearwood - Another tough one. I'll go with Real Live Woman
34. What is the worst song by 45?
Avril Lavigne - I don't think she has any horrible songs. One I can kind of take or leave is I Don't Have to Try.
35. What is your favourite album by 34?
Nelson - Because They Can
36. What do you not like by 48?
Aerosmith - I'm not crazy about anything they've done since "Jaded". That's their last really good song IMO. And the rest of that album didn't really do it for me either other than maybe the title track (Just Push Play). The previous album (Nine Lives) was outstanding so everything since has kind of been a let down.
37. How many times have you seen 42 live?
Garth Brooks - Once in the early 90s at the Houston Rodeo.
38. What is your favourite song by 36?
Sherrie Austin - All The Love A Heart Can Hold

Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
41. Is there a song by 41 that makes you happy?
Carrie Underwood - I guess I'll go with Last Name

Dane Cook - All of his stuff is hilarious. Don't really have a favorite.
43. What is your favourite song by 24?
Guns N' Roses - November Rain
44. What is a good memory you have involving 47?
Queen - I remember going to the library and checking out the Night At The Opera album on vinyl when I was in high school. Mostly to listen to Bohemian Rhapsody. But it wasn't until I met my husband that I was introduced to their entire catalog.
45. What is your favourite song by 35?
Nickelback - Burn It To The Ground!! That song kicks my ass.
46. Is there a song by 9 that makes you happy?
Heart - ALL OF THEM! So many memories attached to this band for me. But off the top of my head I'll go with (Love Me Like Music) I'll Be Your Song
47. What is your favourite album by 5?
Green Day - American Idiot
48. Who is your favourite member of 37?
Bon Jovi - Jon of course!
49. What is the first song you ever heard by 43?
Madonna - I think it was Lucky Star.

The resulting number of unique artists is your super-eclectic score. You can compute your own score at http://anthony.liekens.net/pub/scripts/last.fm/supereclectic.php
My super-eclectic score is currently639/1000
The most similar artists for my profile are Katy Perry (7), Carrie Underwood (7), Poison (6), Miley Cyrus (6), Taylor Swift (6), Christina Aguilera (6), Cinderella (6), Skid Row (6), Jo Dee Messina (5), Lindsay Lohan (5)
Not too bad considering it only calculates your top 50 artists. I imagine it would be even higher if it calculated my entire library.

#5: Trisha Yearwood - Where Your Road Leads
Another wonderful album from Trisha, this one actually includes some of my all-time favorite songs of hers - "Wouldn't Any Woman", "There Goes My Baby", "I'll Still Love You More", and "Powerful Thing". The title track, a duet with Garth Brooks, is also a lovely song. I like her version of the Allison Moorer song "Bring Me All Your Lovin'" too.
#4: Nelson - Brother Harmony
This is most definitely one of the most underrated albums I have in my collection. Although the cover calls them "The Nelsons", it is indeed the Nelson twins Matthew & Gunnar, so I just call this Nelson along with their other albums. But perhaps the change in their name is due to the change in their sound; because, believe it or not, this is a country album! I did not discover this album until a few years after it was released. I am so glad I did. I'm not sure what's wrong with the country music industry, but they really missed the mark not endorsing and advertising this record. This album is full of radio-friendly country-pop catchiness. My favorite song is "Goin' Goin' Gone" followed by "She's Way Too Cute For Him". Those two tracks alone are worth checking this out, and if you like country ballads, you'll love "Just Once More" and "What About Me?". The only songs I'm not crazy about are the last two, but every other track is perfection.
#3: Kiss - Psycho Circus
After the big KISS reunion in 1996, the original members went back in the studio to record a new album. This was the result. And I love it! This was right around the time I was really discovering KISS and becoming a fan, so it fit me just fine. My favorite songs are "You Wanted The Best", "We Are One", and "Raise Your Glasses". The only song I think is just okay is the Peter Criss track "I Finally Found My Way", but the rest is awesome. Now if only they were able to make another record this great again...but that's a journal entry for another time...
#2: Dixie Chicks - Wide Open Spaces
I remember when I first saw the video for "I Can Love You Better" on CMT. My first reaction was "who are these girls? I love them!" Soon after I saw the CD at the music store and bought it. I loved every single song on it, and to this day it's one of my favorite country albums (although I think I like Fly even more). My favorite tracks seem to change often depending on my moon, but right now I'd say they are "Let 'Er Rip", "I'll Take Care Of You" and "You Were Mine". I also love their cover of the Maria McKee song "Am I The Only One (Who's Ever Felt This Way)".
#1: Jewel - Spirit
I can't stay enough good things about this album. It's pure perfection. I love all of Jewel's albums, but this one holds a special place in my heart. I think it was just one of those records that came along just at the right time. I think of every song as a beautiful piece of art. Like the Dixie Chicks album, my favorites change often, but I think my top favorite song here is "What's Simple Is True". Just exquisite. I also love "Do You", "Life Uncommon", "Deep Water", and "Down So Long".

#5: Shania Twain - Come on Over
Shania's third album was probably her most successful, so much so that an international version was released with subtle remixes. This album is great for the occassional country fan, or those that prefer country-pop over traditional country. One thing I like most about this album is that it includes the original version of "From This Moment On", which was a duet with Bryan White. I prefer this version over the single version that was Shania's vocals only. It also includes the singles "Man! I Feel Like A Woman!", "Love Gets Me Every Time", "Don't Be Stupid (You Know I Love You)", "Honey, I'm Home", "That Don't Impress Me Much", and the title track, as well as the massive hit "You're Still The One". Fantastic record from beginning to end.
#4: Hanson - Middle Of Nowhere
I loved these guys from day one. The first time I saw the video for "MMMBop", I just thought they were fantastic. I bought this CD soon after, and it instantly became a favorite. Other than "MMMBop", my favorite songs are "Speechless", "I Will Come To You", "Madeline", and "Where's The Love". These are super talented guys with very catchy, melodic songs that anyone should be able to enjoy...as long as you don't have your head up your ass and think you're too good for pop music.
#3: Martina McBride - Evolution
You know those albums that you instantly fall in love with just from one listen? This was one of those albums for me. It's by far my favorite of Martina's, and this album made her one of my vocal idols. I really feel that she did her best and gave it her all with this one. It includes the huge hit "A Broken Wing", as well as "Whatever You Say", "Still Holding On" (with Clint Black), and "Valentine" (with Jim Brickman). My personal favorites are "Be That Way", "Some Say I'm Running", "Wrong Again", and "I Don't Want To See You Again".
#2: Aerosmith - Nine Lives
In my opinion, this was Aerosmith's last really good album. Every track is typical Aerosmith greatness. My favorite is "Ain't That A Bitch", followed closely by "Hole In My Soul" and "Full Circle". "Falling In Love (Is Hard On The Knees)", "Taste Of India", and the title track are also fantastic...and let's not forget "Pink"!! Other than "Jaded" and the title track from their next album (Just Push Play) and "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" from the Armageddon soundtrack, I don't think Aerosmith has been on top since this album.
#1: Green Day - Nimrod
Even if you're not a Green Day fan, you at least know one song from this album - "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)". And hopefully there are enough people who bought the album just because of that song and ended liking the rest of it. Because this album is superb! My favorite track on here is "The Grouch", but I also love "Hitchin' A Ride", "Nice Guys Finish Last", "Worry Rock", "Redundant", and "Walking Alone"...just to name a few. And if you've ever seen them live, you're probably familiar with "King For A Day" ;) (By the way...see them live if you have a chance...they're the best!)
