If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
CO: Sufjan Stevens' "Seven Swans."
GA: Bloc Party's "A Weekend in the City."
Favorite song to privately dance/rock out to?
CO: Katy Perry's "Hot'n'Cold" with third-floor Winthrop, especially Lon Nunley.
GA: "Single Ladies" by Beyonce.
If you were in a band, what would it be called and what kind of music would you play?
CO: The Machimatics. We'd play folk/rock/alternative tunes, mostly lullabies and serenades with many cello solos.
GA: The Late Starters. We'd mash-up everything from acoustic guitars to electro-beats and call it a day.
Theme song during Ivies?
CO: "LES Artistes" by Santogold.
GA: "Take Me to the Riot" by Stars.
If you could meet any musician, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
CO: M.I.A. because she has had an amazingly unique life and chatting with her would be sweet. Also, I could steal some of her crazy spandex.
GA: Kele Okereke, frontman for Bloc Party, because I adore him.
Best new music you've heard lately?
CO: N.A.S.A.'s "The Spirit of Apollo," Brazilian Girls' "New York City," and of course Andrew Bird's "Noble Beast."
GA: Crystal Castles—great electronic music. The new Brazilian Girls album "New York City," Utada's English album, Fleet Foxes, and Bon Iver makes some gorgeous love songs...
If you could time travel back to any musical period, where would you go and why?
CO: The 1960s because I could see two of the most influential sounds in music live: Motown and the Beatles.
GA: The mid-1970s during the punk rock scene in New York City and London, only because I'm trying to start a silly punk band with some friends and I would like the street cred.
Bands/musicans who have most influenced your musical taste?
CO: Wilco, M.I.A., Sufjan Stevens, Santogold, Yo-Yo Ma, Andrew Bird, and The Dandy Warhols.
GA: Bloc Party, Utada Hikaru, Stars, Santogold, M.I.A., Patti Smith, Peaches, Ani DiFranco, Tracy Chapman, Broken Social Scene.
