If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
EB: "The Soft Bulletin" by the Flaming Lips.
TT: "Houses of the Holy" by Led Zeppelin.
Favorite song to privately dance/rock out to?
EB: I guess the one I should put here is Lou Bega's classic, "Mambo No. 5," but honestly I see no shame in that.
TT: "Blue" by Eiffel 65.
If you were in a band, what would it be called and what kind of music would you play?
EB: We'd be called Best Boy Electric, and we'd be an acoustic ukulele quartet who played luau covers of '90s pop hits in the lobby of some luxury resort where we would get paid an exorbitant fee despite the fact that nobody is really listening to us at all. I'd have fun with it and start throwing in profanities, just to see if someone would notice.
TT: I would be in Eric's band, but when the band inevitably split up due to its sheer ridiculousness, I would start a band called Aural Asphyxiation and would play straight up electronica all day everyday.
Theme song during Ivies?
EB: Easily the "Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats, because you can never be too safe during Ivies.
TT: "Double Vision" by Foreigner. Yes, Foreigner.
If you could meet any musician, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
EB: Kurt Cobain, so I could teach him to love.
TT: Charlie Parker. No explanation necessary.
Best new music you've heard lately?
EB: A luau/hip-hop band called Reefer. Wow, I've been listening to them for over a week and I just got the pun in the title now.
TT: I'm going to copy Eric and say Reefer as well. Hoorah for puns.
If you could time-travel back to any musical period, where would you go and why?
EB: Just before Mozart, so I could publish all of his stuff as my own and then everyone in the future would be all into Binswanger.
TT: Well if I had to choose after Eric, I would go back to an earlier point so I could foil his evil plot and restore order to the musical galaxy, destroying his alternate 1984-like Back to the Future!
Bands/musicans who have most influenced your musical taste?
EB: Neil Young.
TT: There are so many. The Skatalites, Bob Dylan, The Who, to name a few.
"The Dan Halen and Scott Lee Crew Show" with Eric and Taylor airs Fridays from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. on WBOR 91.1 FM.
