Here's a big long music quiz which I didn't write but did answer. Why not do one yourself to double the pleasure and double the fun?

1. What are you listening to right now?
The sound of a man banging pipes outside my window. And no that is not a euphemism. He has actual metal pipes and is banging them together. I would have said that this is not the intention but who knows? He could be just doing it to annoy me. Anyway this is supposed to be a music quiz about music. So... music!

2. What song makes you sad?
You know that Hometown Glory by Adele. Well I hate her catterwalling all over the music but the music itself reminds me of the last scene from Six Feet Under. So it makes me sad.

3. What is the most annoying song in the world?
Anything that falls under the subgenres of Rap, Hip Hop or R'n'B.

4. Your all time favorite band?
My Chemical Romance.

5. Your newly discovered band is?
Madina Lake don't really count as new as I've been listening to them for ages now but I think they are the most recent band that I really feel like I've discovered. Or that my friend has discovered and then recommended to me which is just as good.

6. Best female voice?
Imogen Heap. I like other female singers more but she has hands down the best voice ever. Well, her or GLaDOS.

7. Best male voice?
Don't know. I tend to sing along to most songs so I don't often have a clear impression of what other people's voices sound like. I rather like my own voice though if it helps.

8. Music type you find yourself listening to most?
I always feel like a git when I use the words Rock or Punk. So instead of using them I'll use the words Post-Hardcore. Which make me sound like even more of a git but have the benefit of being specific.

9. What do you listen to, to hype you up?
I don't generally. I can hype myself up with hardly any musical accompaniment. I suppose if I was going through some kind of training regime and needed a video montage I'd have to listen to something like Eye of the Tiger or something but that's speaking in such hypothetical terms that it's a question for science fiction authors to answer.

10. What do you listen to when you want to calm down?
Imogen Heap.

11. Last gig/concert you went to?
My Chemical Romance which was ages ago. If only Drive-By or Madina Lake or The Used would come to Manchester. Then I'd have a different, more up to date answer.

12. Band you find yourself listening to the most right now?
Madina Lake.

13. Most hated band?
You shouldn't really hate people over something so trivial as musical tastes. That said I hate Alphabeat and if I saw them I would drive a steak through their heart. Or possibly a stake.

14. Song that makes you think?
Songs don't really make me think. What would they make me think about? Notes? Chords? Instruments? Well excuse me if I've got a little too much respect for the artist to drift off half way through a song and start thinking about ridiculous music frivolities!

15. Band that you think the world should love as much as you do?
Madina Lake

16. Coolest music video?
Can't Stop - Red Hot Chilli Peppers

17. Music video with the most babe watch?
I didn't write this quiz you know. I just want to be sure because I want to distance myself from the phrase babe watch. I want to get so far away from it that if it shouted something to me I wouldn't be able to hear it with a hearing aid and an ear trumpet. Which is quite far away.

18. What do you play/would you play in the bedroom to spice things up?
Hold on a minute. First you think I should be all brooding and comtemplatative while listening to music and now you think I should stop thinking while listening to music and start having sex. I resent your implication and I'll be writing a stern letter to your headmaster.

19. Can you play a musical instrument?
Nope although I wish I could play a guitar. I'd set up a band called ... just to hear people attempt to pronounce our name.

20. Ever been in a mosh pit?

21. Are you in a band?
No and you know what I'd do if I was. I'd call it ... just to hear people attempt to pronounce it. Doesn't Jo Whiley look blooming?

23. Ever dated a musician?

28. Do you wish yourself that you were a musician?

29. Best chick band you know of?
Girls Aloud? They're fairly popular plus some of their songs are alright.

31. Last song that you heard on the radio/cd...etc...?
3 Libras by A Perfect Circle. I was testing the bass on the subwoofer and just clicked to play the first thing I could see. Not that 3 Libras by A Perfect Circle isn't good. It is good. I like it very muchly.

32. What do you think of Classical music?
Nope. Boredom.

33. What do you think of Country music?
Does Primal Scream's Country Girl count as Country music? If not then probably not.

34. What do you think of Death metal?
Too heavy for me.

35. Last BIG band that you saw live?
My Chemical Romance. Okay they're not BIG big but they had a number one almost concurrently with the performance. If that doesn't count then I'm afraid I haven't ever seen a BIG band live.

36. Are you a groupie?
Nope. Although I would if the opportunity presented itself. Particuarly if the opportunity presented itself around tatu, avril lavigne, gwen stefani, christina aguilera or (possibly) noel fielding.

37. Do you listen to music in foreign languages?
I used to listen to the russian versions of tatu tracks then I got bored of that and just listen to the english versions now. I can understand the words on them better.

38. What famous musician would you like to fuck!?
Welcome to the most repetitive quiz in the world. How about seeing the answer for question 37?

39. Worst concert moment?
Not been to enough concerts to have what I'd describe as a worst concert moment. However the support act for My Chemical Romance the first time I saw them was pretty dire. I think it was something called Every Time I Die or something. Although Drive-By which was the other support act were brilliant even though I didn't know the words and I now own their album.

40. Funny concert moment?
Again I haven't been to enough concerts to have specific emotional moments. Although I guess yawning my way through a hard rock support band (Thursday I think) might qualify. Possibly.

41. Sad concert moment?
Not enough concerts to have specific emotional moments. Leave me alone!

42. Best local act you can think of?
Probably The Oasises. They're pretty famous and I can't think of another musical thing that comes out of Manchester.

43. If you were a musical instrument what would you be?
A sponge!

44. Do you listen to the radio?
Only radio with minimal amounts of music. Like Chris Moyles.

45. Do you watch music TV?

46. Do you follow the music charts, like the top 40?
Nope. By the way this quiz feels like it's been going on for a long time now.

47. Have you met any famous musicians?
No. I've met the author Robert Rankin but he isn't a musician and many would argue that he isn't famous.

48. Are any of your friends/family/etc. musicians?
No but my friend Lee owns a guitar and my cousin Tom owns two guitars. Between them they own three guitars. I am going delirious.

49. Song that best describes your feelings right now?
The song "Delirious" by Prince. I've never listened to it but it's the easiest way of describing my current emotion through the medium of song titles.

50. Song that describes your life?
The song "Delirious" by Prince. I've never listened to it but it's the easiest way of describing my entire life through the medium of song titles.

51. Do you know the names of all the band members that you listen to?
Only My Chemical Romance, and even then I think they might have changed their lineup from what I vaguely remember.

52. Does a musician’s physical attractiveness play a role in the music that you listen to?
No. But I'll typically only admit to liking their music if they are hot. For women that is. For men I don't care.

53. What famous musician do you want to marry?
Yulia Vulkova out of tatu, but only if I was Lena Katina. Which at this stage of my life is unlikely.

53. Favourite movie sound track?
Kill Bill Volume 1

55. Any musician pet hates?
Nope. I don't dislike the pets of any musicians. That would be cruel and unnecessary.

56. What do your parents listen to?
My mum likes exactly the same music as I do. My nan does as well actually, just not some of the harder stuff.

57. What are you listening to right NOW?
A car revving up outside.

58. Do you wear band etc T-shirts?
Yes. My Chemical Romance ones.

59. Do you cook to music?
I sometimes sing while I make sandwiches. Does that count?

70. Do you sing in the toilet?
Yes actually. Really random songs that I don't know the words/titles/artists of.
