Thursday Thirteen: 13/34ths of a music meme
Picking 13 questions from a music meme posted by Brendan (aka leptard). Why not play along yourself?
  1. What are you listening to right now?
    You caught me on an old-school day. But lately that's been the norm. I'm playing No Thanks! The '70s Punk Rebellion, a four-CD collection of classics. It's set on random. Now playing: "Search and Destroy," by Iggy Pop. No, wait. Now it's "Personality Crisis," by the New York Dolls.

  2. What is the most annoying song in the world?
    The three that come to mind are all from the '70s: "Seasons in the Sun," by Terry Jacks, "After the Lovin'," by Engelbert Humperdinck, and "Escape (the Pina Colata Song)," by Rupert Holmes.

  3. Your all time favorite band/artist?
    The Clash, of course.

  4. Your newly discovered band/artist is?
    Asobi Seksu. Just downloaded their new CD, Citrus, last weekend, and have been feasting on it. Listen to a few cuts on their MySpace page.

  5. Best female voice?
    There are so many great ones. I love the soulfulness of Aretha Franklin, the little-girl whispers-turned-manic panting of Patti Smith, Crissy Hynde, Debbie Harry, even on occasion, Madonna. It depends on what I'm in the mood to listen to.

  6. Best male voice?
    Elvis Costello is up there, but as with female vocalists, it depends on the genre and my mood. Could be Mick Jagger or Joe Cocker one minute, Roger Daltrey the next, or Sufjan Stevens.

  7. Music type you find yourself listening to most?
    Early punk (76-80 or 81), new wave, some recent indie stuff.

  8. What do you listen to, to hype you up?
    Ramones, Clash, Sex Pistols, the Damned -- just about anything raunchy, sloppy, and fast.

  9. What do you listen to, to calm down?
    Cat Power, Sufjan Stevens.

  10. Last gig/concert you went to?
    Now I'm embarrassed. It's been so long since I've been to a real show.

  11. Band/artist you find yourself listening to the most right now?
    Asobi Seksu (see No. 4, above).

  12. Most hated band/artist?
    I'm not sure I hate them, but the Moody Blues comes to mind.

  13. Song that makes you think?
    I didn't know rock and roll was supposed to make you think. But I suppose they all do, at some level. One of my favorite "thinking" songs, in a philosophical, existential sort of way, is "Crosseyed and Painless," by Talking Heads.
