Music Meme Monday: YOU. Behind the Music.

SO many people visited last week when I did the “iPod Shuffle Quiz – Parent Edition”!  (Now, I grant you, you may not have known that from the amount of comments/linkie-things, but trust me…folks were here. ;) )

Now, since I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck yesterday, I can see that I’ve stumbled across something that may just be popular.  What say we make this a weekly thing…a music-themed bunch of questions, with a different process to answer them each time?

I like it.  I say we go for it.  And so, we shall.

Today’s Music Meme Monday:  YOU.  Behind the Music.


This week, I’m ripping off the list of questions used by James Lipton at the end of “Inside the Actor’s Studio“.  I don’t feel guilty, though, because he ripped them off from French TV’s Bernard Privot, who ripped them off from the Proust Questionnaire.  Besides, I’m changing them some.

Now, bear in mind – these answers should be “off the top of your head” responses.  No one is holding you to this forever.  Just put down whatever comes to mind first – it’s funnier that way!

  • This time you don’t need an iPod or Music Library – just your memory and gut response.
  • Copy and paste the questions into a new post for your blog, or if you have no blog, play along on our Forum.
  • Without looking anything up or hesitating more than a few seconds, answer the questions. (Delete my answers and add yours, natch.)
  • Add songs, a playlist, You Tube inks if you like, but it’s totally not necessary.
  • Then, come back and link us to your blog or the Forum, using the Mr. Linky Magical Widget below!

Have fun! (I did. ;) )

  • What is your favorite band/artist? (Specify “right now” or “all time”)

  • What is your least favorite band/artist?  (Specify “right now” or “all time”)
    • Helen Hunt.  (All Time)  Oh, I know she’s an actress, but I bet she sings in the shower, so that counts.  Lord, I can’t stand her.
  • What genre of music do you LOVE? (Gotta pick just one)
    • Alternative Country. (Also called “Americana” and sometimes referred to as “Folk/Rock”)
  • What genre of music do you HATE? (Gotta pick just one)

    • Rap.  No, Electronica.  Screw it, I’m picking two.  My questions – my rules.
  • What is a song that you love?
  • What is a song that you find incredibly annoying?
  • What is your favorite “embarrassing guilty pleasure song”?
  • If you were in/involved with a hugely popular band…what “position” would you most want to fill & why?
    • Manager, because I’m a control freak and I LOVE details.
  • What “position” would you NOT like to attempt & why?
    • Roadie.  I’m way too lazy.
  • If you could meet one musician that has passed away, who would it be and why?
    • See number one.  I just have so many questions…

    Oh and here’s a little video from last night… Blitzen Trapper doing Furr which is probably pretty familiar to you all. They were one of SXSW favorites in 2009. If they come near you… go see them! They really give it all they’ve got. Poor guys were sweating their brains out…
