2. have you ever had a song written about you? by a friend, yes. never a whole song.
3. what song makes you cry? "everybody here wants you" and almost everything else by jeff buckley. "this must be the place," the talking heads. "inner city blues," marvin gaye. "let you down," dave matthews band. "i only have eyes for you," the flamingos. "protection," massive attack.
4. what song makes you happy? all of the above. anything by the aquabats. most anything by led zeppelin. everything by souls of mischief, especially "93 til infinity." stuff i listened to in middle school, like soul 4 real. that bit in the middle of "round here" by the counting crows.
5. what do you like to listen to before bed? "let you down," dave matthews. "i only have eyes for you," the flamingos. "la cienega just smiled," ryan adams. "perfect blue buildings," counting crows.
