From The Great Gatsby soundtrack, Jack White covering U2, doing his best Robert Plant, and vastly improving on the original. (Wish I could say the same for the movie.)

The White Stripes - You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You’re Told)

Exactly my point.

How’s this for commotion, Ms. Bru? You know what it is about these pictures? Yeah. It’s the lips.

19. Snog, marry, avoid the first 3 artists on shuffle.
We don’t say “snog” here in the U.S., but I get the picture. As for “marry,” I’ve already blogged extensively about how I would not marry any musician or artist, because I know from experience that what attracts you to them is what eventually drives you insane. “Avoid” makes no sense, because if they’re on my iPod, it means I like them, so why would I want to avoid them? So really, the question is, “to snog, or not to snog?” So here goes: The first song to come up is, appropriately enough, Strange Desire by The Black Keys. Definitely snog. One, or the other, or preferably both. Next up is I Fought Piranhas by The White Stripes. Jack White I would so totally snog. Finally, Sweet Cloud by The Kills. Well, I think Jamie Hince is or was married to a supermodel, so I don’t think I could compete with that. However, although I’ve never snogged or had the desire to snog a woman, I sure wouldn’t kick Alison Mosshart off my couch.

12. What’s your favorite genre of music? Whatever genre describes the likes of Incubus (alt-metal?), Yes (prog-rock?), Jack White (alternative?), Led Zeppelin (classic rock?). I never know what to call it. All I know is, I’m not partial to jazz. There, I’ve said it.

13. What song has the highest play count on your iTunes? My iTunes count is all messed up, so I don’t trust the numbers. It does make sense, though, that the highest counts are for songs by Maroon 5, because before my legs stopped working I was listening to my iPod while walking three miles a day on a treadmill, and I found that Maroon 5’s music is perfect for that.

14. What song would you sing on karaoke? I answered this one already on the other 30 day music challenge I’m doing. Eternal Flame by The Bangles.

15. What song should never be sung on
I think there’s something missing from this question. Sung on what? An instrumental to which no one should ever put lyrics? I’m not sure what they’re going for here, so I’m going to make up my own question: What song should never be played when you call your divorce lawyer’s office and they put you on hold? I know this answer from personal experience: We’ve Only Just Begun by The Carpenters.

16. What’s your favorite album? Right now, my favorite album by my favorite band is A Crow Left of The Murder by Incubus, but I can’t say it’s my favorite album of all time. I really don’t think I have one.

17. What would be the best lineup for a festival? Any lineup that includes the two best live bands I’ve seen to date: Incubus and My Morning Jacket. The video posted here is a clip from the MMJ show I went to last December.

18. Do you get any music magazines? Not for ages. When I was a teenager we all subscribed to Rolling Stone. Now I have Tumblr.

7. Can you play any instruments? Sadly, no. When I was a teenager, my sister worked for the dean of the school of music at Yale. One day, the Tokyo String Quartet came to Yale to give a performance, and I got to meet them. When we were introduced, they mistook me for one of the music school students and said, “Oh, hello, what do you play?” It was highly embarrassing. I answered, “The radio.” I don’t think they got it.

8. Which band would you give anything to see? I don’t know that I’d “give anything,” but I’ve never seen the Foo Fighters and would like to very much. And I wouldn’t mind seeing Incubus again. And again. And again…

9. Have you got any music hoodies, T-shirts, wristbands etc…? So far I have two Incubus shirts. I also have my high-tech Firefly Music Festival wristband, which I blogged about a few months back.

10. Five photos of your favorite gig. I’m taking “gig” to mean concert, right? My favorite concert will always be the first time I saw Incubus, which was here in Miami last year, but unfortunately I didn’t have a very good view, and I’m not that great a photographer. Here, though, are the two best pictures I think I’ve ever taken at a concert, and they both happened completely by accident.

11. Favorite song at this minute? This very minute? Maybe Freedom at 21 by Jack White.

30 day music challenge

Day 2: A song you like with a number in the title.

A tie between Three Little Birds by Bob Marley and 11 a.m. by Incubus. Honorable mentions include One Step Up by Bruce Springsteen (the only song I’m listing with “one” in the title, because there are way too many), Four Sticks and Ten Years Gone by Led Zeppelin, Sun/C79 by Cat Stevens, Just the Two of Us by Bill Withers & Grover Washington Jr., 4 + 20 by Stephen Stills, Four Strong Winds by Neil Young, Freedom at 21 by Jack White, 3’s & 7’s by Queens of the Stone Age, Dead Road 7 by The Kills, and, okay, two more “one” songs: In One Ear by Cage the Elephant, and Bob Dylan’s One More Cup of Coffee by The White Stripes. For something new, let’s throw in 45 by Gaslight Anthem, and can I get a bonus point for One More Night by Maroon 5, since the band’s name has a number in it too?
