I'm going to do this about my top artists of the past 12 months to make it more interesting.

1. How did you get into 29?
There is no 29, there are two 28s, Gaslight Anthem and Black Hybrid Swan Fatigue
My sister recommended Gaslight to me, I think. I am a member of Black Hybrid Swan Fatigue.

2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Fleet Foxes
Not sure, they all sound the same, haha. Probably one of the earlier singles, I guess.

3. What's your favorite lyric by 33? Led Zeppelin
"How soft your fields of green can whisper tales of gore of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords." -Immigrant Song

4. How did you get into 49? Bon Iver
I used to listen to this weirdo pseudo-last.fm radio that Yahoo.com used to have. I really liked the songs that I heard, but when I stopped using Yahoo radio I forgot about Bon Iver until about a year ago ago when everybody started talking about him.

5. How many albums by 13 do you own? The Dresden Dolls
The concept of owning music is weird, but I have four albums of theirs on my computer, which I think is all they have.

6. What is your favorite song by 50? David Bowie
Maybe Modern Love.

7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad? The Beatles
The Beatles in general make me think of high school, which makes me think about how long ago high school was, which makes me think about how old I am, which usually makes me sad. So, all of them?

8. What is your favorite song by 15? Bright Eyes
They have so many songs that I love. I'd say You Will. You? Will. You? Will. You? Will. is my favorite song of the moment. Lua is a pretty good one too.

9. What is your favorite song by 5? Wolf Parade
You Are a Runner and I Am My Father's Son, definitely.

10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? Modest Mouse
Out of Gas, I guess? It's really catchy. Catchy songs make me happy I guess.

11. What is the worst song by 40?
39 is a tie between The Beatles and Catch 22
The Beatles have no bad songs, maybe Your Mother Should Know is the one I respect the least. Catch 22's worst song is probably on an album I don't have.

12. What is your favorite song by 10? Brian Wilson
As a solo artist? Maybe Live Let Live

13. What is a good memory you have involving 30? Grateful Dead
Playing Friend of the Devil with Jay Everett and Ben Resnick in the hallway outside the gym.

14. What is your favorite song by 38?
37 is a tie between The Sloppy Horse and The Beau Mondes
The one time the full lineup of The Sloppy Horse played, Before I Move Along was really really awesome. Steve's guitar solo was great. As for the Beau Mondes, Curses and Blessings.

15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy?
18 is a tie between Okkervil River and Dan Scarpa
This is what I answered a year and a half ago: "No. This is an annoying question. Songs don't make me happy."

16. Is there a song by 25 that makes you sad? Andrew Nieporent & the Nonspecifics
Nostalgic sad, see question 7, but replace high school with college.

Threeve used to be a Greentrail Estate song, does that count? I'll say it does. Threeve.
