TIM SULLIVAN '10 AND BARRETT MOORE '10
If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
TS: It'd have to be something by the Peppers, my all-time favorite band. I'd go with "Californication."
BM: John Mayer's live album, "Where the Light Is."
Best spontaneous dance party music?
TS: Obviously whatever DJ B-Rat is putting down, but also, "Empire State of Mind." I can't not bop to that song.
BM: A-Trak's remix of Boys Noize's "OH!"
What music gets you in the mood?
TS: Mood for what? I don't really listen to music like that.
BM: I won't disclose it, but those who know, know.
TS: And unfortunately I know.
If you were in a band, what would it be called and what kind of music would you play?
TS: I'd play stadium anthems and call it "Kings of Leon." Is that name taken?
BM: That's really tough. I don't know if I could combine all the genres that interest me into one band. I'm incapable of answering this question...I'll just stick to DJing for now.
What's the best new music you've heard?
BM: Excellent question. Far East Movement's "Like A G6" is probably my current favorite. Soundshakerz have produced some great tracks recently as well.
TS: The best breaking band I've heard recently is The xx. I'm also enjoying Vampire Weekend's new album a lot.
If your radio show could host any any musician, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
TS: Either Pharrell or Kanye. They're both creative geniuses, in music and outside of it.
BM: John Lennon. I just finished his biography—the bro's got a lot of stories.
What's the first album you ever bought?
TS: That would be "Astro Lounge" by Smash Mouth.
BM: Jeremiah Freed's eponymous debut album.
Best guilty pleasure music?
TS: Maybe Alanis Morissette.
BM: Hanson's "MMMBop." But how guilty do I actually feel?
If you had to pick one song to be banned from Bowdoin what would it be?
TS: What's overplayed? I haven't been to a party where you weren't spinning in a while.
BM: I love Miley, but "Party in the USA" needs to be cut off.
TS: Word, that's a good answer.
What's the best concert you've ever been to?
TS: The Glow in the Dark Tour, hands down. Kanye with N*E*R*D and Lupe Fiasco opening. Rihanna was there too but she was boring.
BM: I'm in a bro-nundrum, but I'll have to go with Ray LaMontagne at the Boston Opera House.
Best road trip soundtrack?
BM: Pakito's pretty good.
TS: I'd go on a road trip if Pakito was pumping.
If you could choose one song to play when you enter a room, what would it be?
TS: I'd throw on "Anti Matter" by N*E*R*D. That gets me hyped.
BM: "Mike Dooley's in the Room," a DJ B-Rat original mix.
TS: A classic, though that might confuse some people.
The Beat Drop airs Wednesdays from 10a.m.-11 a.m. on WBOR 91.1 FM.
