11 A song from your favorite band - Psychopsilocybin by Incubus. Fungus Amongus won't be to everyone's taste but this song is pretty awesome. Especially Mike Einziger's guitar work.
12 A song from a band you hate - All The Pretty Faces by The Killers. You know I dislike this band, I happen to think this particular song is alright. Hate is a strong word.
13 A song that is a guilty pleasure - Dancing Queen by Abba. The harmony is extremely special in this one. I'm being very brave putting this instead of something less homo. It's a good song.
14 A song that no one would expect you to love - Sunshine by Twista Feat. Anthony Hamilton. Like the sample most obviously, Bill Withers is brilliant, but Anthony Hamilton in particular makes this version particularly memorable. Twista also lays down a decent rap about hustling and serving muthafuckers.

15 A song that describes you - De Do Do Do De Da Da Da by The Police. Hard to think of one. This seems alright. Remember well; I am me and no song can immitate that.
16 A song that you used to love but now hate - Don't Stop Believin' by Journey. Horrifically overplayed since 2009. Went from favourite song contender to active avoidance. Gee thanks, song challenge question number 2.
17 A song that you hear often on the radio - Forget You by Cee Lo Green. Really like this song, think its still awesome even after all the exposure. Gateway into a fantastic artist. I regret that few will be able to check out his Stray Bullets mix tape which blows away the already great album The Lady Killer. Fuck You was better, mind.
18 A song that you wish you heard on the radio - Ain't Nothing Wrong With That by Robert Randolph and the Family Band. Totally unexpected song that came to me in a Halo Reach Beta montage last year! Definitely deserves to broadcast the good summer vibrations over the waves to the mindless public who otherwise wouldn't hear this. A feel good tune tha promotes tolerance. What?!?
19 A song from your favorite album - Radio by Jamiroquai. Am I copping out by choosing High Times, a singles collection? This album was a surprise hit in summer 2008 for me, and I can still mostly happily listen to it again and again (did so yesterday in the car). Sure, the single edits cut out a lot of great music from the tracks but its an essential collection and brilliant introduction to one of Britain's most funky exports. Plus the song I have chosen is insanely sexy, and I really hope the band goes in this direction more in the next album. Opportunity missed on Rock Dust Light Star?
20 A song that you listen to when you’re angry- Lying From You by Linkin Park. It had to be this band. Nearly picked One Step Closer but this one is normally more apt if a little extreme. Don't get angry very often. Woe betide the person who witnesses it.
This was a really hard task to complete. Hope you appreciate at least some of this choices. Back soon with the ultimate blog post (if penultimate is second to last I guess last is ultimate?)
