Favourite Bands (other than the Decemberists): Pink Floyd, The Smiths, Belle and Sebastian, David Bowie, The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Beatles, Peter Gabriel, Elliott Smith, Yes, Madness, The Shins...yes a strange variety there.
First Decemberists Song: California One/Youth And Beauty Brigade - I was sewing a pink bunny onto a skirt of mine when my sister walked in with portable speakers and a copy of California One...10 minutes of wholesome bliss.
Decemberists song you most associate with yourself: Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect (hell, we all read some strange things into songs at times, and I think what I've seen in the lyrics are just so different from their intended meaning)
Decemberists song you dance to: Legionnaire's Lament
Decemberists song you would cry to: We Both Go Down Together
Decemberists song you crave to hear: July, July!
Favourite Decemberists Songs: haha I tried to list them all but I couldn't make up my mind...so if I pick one from each album - Picaresque: Engine Driver, Castaways and Cutouts: Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect, Her Majesty: Los Angeles, I'm Yours.
Least Favourite songs: From My Own True Love, The Gymnast High Above The Ground, Shanty For The Arethusa, My Mother Was A Chinese Trapese Artist.
Favourite Part Of Their Music: Colin's wonderful voice and equally *interesting* accent
Favourite way to listen: Either on the bus while it's raining outside or drinking a huge cup of tea sitting on my bed with my head positioned right in the middle of the speakers (while it's raining...the best weather for practically everything but sunbaking)
