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!
What is your favorite band/artist? (Specify “right now” or “all time”)
All time: Elton John. My kids called him my boyfriend until we had to have the 'but he's gay' discussion.
What is your least favorite band/artist? (Specify “right now” or “all time”)
Right Now: It's a ridiculously close tie between Miley Cyrus, Kesha and Jessica Simpson. I'm going to justify the rule-breaking by saying that all rolled up into one they're still a sandwich short of a rock-star picnic.
What genre of music do you LOVE? (Gotta pick just one)
Alternative Country. (Yes, I'm copying Ri…..watch out, it will happen again).
What genre of music do you HATE? (Gotta pick just one)
Electronica/Techno. Same thing, right–the sound of fingernails on chalkboards.
What is a song that you love?
Righteously by Lucinda Williams
What is a song that you find incredibly annoying?
Oh so many choices…..um…..ANYTHING by Rascal Flatts.
What is your favorite “embarrassing guilty pleasure song”?
Paradise by the Dashboard Light by Meatloaf (Ri, I *heart* that you love this too)
If you were in/involved with a hugely popular band…what “position” would you most want to fill & why?
Hehehe….my mind immediately went to the gutter for a lovely moment. How about official wardrobe assistant for Jon Bon Jovi. I doubt I need to explain why.
What “position” would you NOT like to attempt & why?
Official wardrobe assistant for Keith Richards. Again, self-explanatory.
If you could meet one musician that has passed away, who would it be and why?
Johnny Cash and he should bring along June. Just 'cuz.
