What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
Had to be the TV show theme because I was watching reruns in the afternoon.

What is your favourite album by 2?
Darin at the Copa

What is your favourite lyric that 1 has sung?
Everybody has the right to be wrong some times. Everybody has the right the right to be dunce-like once-like. Not being to smart is, it's no disgrace. What sets you apart is laughing with egg on your face.

How many times have you seen 11 live?
Never. She played at Bimbos a few years ago when her last album came out, but I didn't go. :(

What is your favorite song by 7?
Super Trouper--I just love harmonies and the mix and everything ABBA about it.

What is a good memory you have involving 20?
Singing Jackie Wilson Said at the Mint. It's one of my kick-ass songs.

(I just realized that joanne_c and I had Van the Man in the same spot on
our list because here answer to the question was:
Listening to "Brown-Eyed Girl" while I danced at my brother's wedding." I promise I didn't even look at her list before I started.)

Is there a song by 3 that makes you sad?
Miss You Nights gets me everytime.

What is your favorite lyric that 14 has sung?

You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.

What is your favorite song by 19?
Slave to Love

How did you first get into 22?
I don't know. He's one of those people who's always been in my consciousness. Maybe from seeing him be a guest on a variety show in the early 7's?

What was the first song you heard by 21?
Maybe the Peter, Paul & Mary version of Blowing in the Wind. For a Dylan song ACTUALLY sung by Dylan, I'm thinking Like A Rollin' Stone, when I listened to WNEW AM in New York.

What is your favorite song by 4?
Half a Boy and Half a Man.

What is a good memory you have involving 13?
My mom took me to see Yellow Submarine when it came out. Not sure I got it all at the time. but I know I liked the music and the colors. I think I related to Jeremy a little.

Is there a song by 23 that makes you sad?
Shiloh. It's like a "Cat's In The Cradle" that doesn't make me want to puke.

What is your favorite album of 15?
I don't know the individual albums that well, so I'll say Greatest Hits.

What is your favorite lyric that 9 has sung?

Well she never asks for very much and I don't refuse her
Always treat her with respect, I never would abuse her.
What she's got is hard to find, and I don't want to lose her.
Help me build a mansion from my little pile of clay. Hey, hey, hey

How many times have you seen 5 live?
Never. WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Please John, one North American show, that's all I'm asking.)

What is your favorite album by 12?
Live at the Palladium

What is a good memory you have involving 25?
First time I saw The Last Waltz and watchd her sing Coyote. Chills, baby, chills!

What was the first song you heard by 18?
I think More Than This when it was first on MTV, but possibly Love Is The Drug when it was on the charts.

What is your favorite song by 17?
Fox On The Run

What is your favorite album by 24?
Harvest Moon

How many of your top 25 have you seen live?
Well a lot of them were dead or dying or broken up before I was either born or aware of them.
I saw Sinatra at Carnegie Hall in 1977 which was AMAZING.
Nick Lowe this year at Great American Music Hall
Tom Jones, once in Vegas and twice at the Fillmore
Van Morrison once at the Greek Theater.
I was at a Dylan/Dead show at Oakland colliseum, but I'm not sure I actually SAW him.
Neil Diamond once at Madison Square Garden. I mostly saw the back of his head.
Neil Young-Many times, including a few Bridge concerts.
So that makes *7*.
