If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?

JE: Simon & Garfunkel, "The Concert in Central Park."

DS: "London Calling" by The Clash. It's a cliché answer for a reason and there's not a bad track in the 20 on there.

Best spontaneous dance party music?

JE: Anything by Abba, "Don't Stop Believin','" "Walkin''' on Sunshine" or "The Twist."

DS: "A Fifth of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy and the Big Apple Band.

What music gets you in the mood?

JE: "Somebody to Love" by Queen or "There is a Light that Never Goes Out" by The Smiths—is that one weird?

DS: Animal Collective. Nothing better than chanting!

If you were in a band, what would it be called and what kind of music would you play?

JE: My band would probably be some kind of acoustic folky duo playing a mix of original stuff and covers (from no specific genre—probably a grab bag of 1960s pop, jazz and old-timey/bluegrass stuff), and we'd be called Blondie Was Already Taken (as in the band name was already taken). Either that or I'd want to be a part of some Supremes-esque girl group called something ridiculous like The Daisies or The Smiles.

DS: The Rocky Mountain Oysters and we would play electronic rockabilly.

What's the best new music you've heard?

JE: The soundtrack to "Where the Wild Things Are."

DS: What's new music?

If you could meet any musician, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

JE: Carly Simon. She is just the definition of cool.

DS: Neil Young, so I could tell him to calm down.

What's the first album you ever bought?

JE: Two at the same time: The Beatles, "Help," and Michelle Branch, "The Spirit Room"

DS: "Piano Man" by Billy Joel, a cassette tape bought at age eight and demagnetized by age nine.

Best guilty pleasure music?

JE: Christmas carols!

DS: Hair metal—Foreigner, Kiss and Def Leppard, especially.

If you had to pick one song to be banned from Bowdoin what would it be?

JE: "Christmas Shoes."

DS: "Kids" by MGMT. Don't get me wrong—it's a good song, just massively overplayed.

What's the best concert you've ever been to?

JE: Diana Krall this past summer. She had such a natural presence on the stage, and the whole show had this really intimate feel to it, like she was playing in a small, dark restaurant instead of a big outdoor pavilion.

DS: Beirut at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

Best road trip soundtrack?

JE: Eagles, "Eagles."

DS: Jimi Hendrix, the entire "Experience."

If you could choose one song to play when you enter a room, what would it be?

JE: "She's Always a Woman to Me" by Billy Joel.

DS: "Kanske Ar Jag Kar I Dig" by Jens Lekman.
