1) What is the first song you remember from your childhood?
The Way by Fastball. I think I was like... six or seven? And apparently it was The Whole Family's Favourite Song. I stopped liking it because back then we had a bunch of CDs in the car, which were the only things we listened to while driving, and that song was on one of the CDs, and everyone else loved it and played it over and over, and we drove to visit my dad's family three hours away a ton back then. Basically oversaturation ruined it for me.
2) What is the first music you purchased with your own money?
I feel like it was a Hannah Montana CD. Sometimes I just think about how many CDs I bought when the internet was right there and easy to pirate and just Regret all that money lost.
3) What's a piece of music that you know by heart?
I've been in choirs so long that I probably have a list a mile long. But for songs that I didn't learn in choir, or for singing lessons, or during musical theatre productions as cast or crew, or from Christmas production things with my singing/piano teacher (which, oddly, feel like an entirely different category for some reason), I realized a while ago that I'd memorized No Children by The Mountain Goats. Also Little Talks by Of Monsters And Men, Riptide by Vance Joy, and What'd I Miss from Hamilton.
4) What's a song that makes you turn off the music right away?
Lately, most pop songs.
5) And why?
I feel like it's probably some deep-ingrained superiority over those Basic People who like Popular Music™. Which makes me feel awful. But it doesn't really change the fact that 90% of current pop music (as in, the last two-three years) have made me cringe and immediately turn off the radio.
