EMMA CHIAPPETTA '11 AND MATT SEWARD '11
If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
MS: Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
EC: Workingman's Dead by the Grateful Dead (on Vinyl!)
Best spontaneous dance party music?
MS: This should ask for "best spontaneous ass kicking music". But if we're going to have a dance party it should be "Down" by Jay Sean.
EC: I dance to everything...
What music really gets you in the mood?
MS: What kind of mood are we talkin about? I got a lot of moods.
EC: Percy Sledge: "When a Man Loves a Woman." Easy. Now I'll be singing it for the next five minutes.
If you were in a band, what would it be called and what kind of music would you play?
MS: Crazy Expectations and we would play blues-inspired punk rock. A little grittier than blues but it would include basic twelve bar stuff.
EC: Assuming I had musical talent I would probably play sappy folk music.
What's the best new music you've heard?
EC: I saw Béla Fleck last night, which was new to me. It was super awesome.
MS: This Swedish group Bliss. It's kind of wacky Danish chill pop.
If your radio show could host any musician, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
EC: Jerry Garcia, easily.
MS: I would be down with Jerry Garcia coming to our show. He would be a really chill dude.
What's the first album you ever bought?
EC: With my own money...Britney Spears: One More Time. Spent the rest of the afternoon choreographing a dance.
MS: I guess the Beatles, but the first one I take ownership of would be The Arockalypse by Lordi.
What's the best guilty pleasure music?
MS: Lady Gaga? I don't know if it's a pleasure or if it's just guilty.
EC: I listen to some crappy music, but I'm pretty sure I'm proud of it, so no guilt!
If you had to pick one song to be banned from Bowdoin what would it be?
MS: Nah, I don't believe in banning music. That's fascism...except for Ke$ha. But I secretly kind of like that song so it's ok.
EC: I dunno. I've probably had enough Ke$ha too.
What's the best concert you've ever been to?
MS: Dropkick Murphy's and Mighty Mighty Bosstones. It was my first mosh!
EC: Mmm...probably Allman Brothers...or Avett Brothers...anything "Brothers" really.
Best road trip soundtrack?
MS: John Williams!
EC: We used to have a Disney Traveling CD. Goofy's "There's a Hole in My Bucket" was a personal favorite.
If you could choose one song to play when you enter a room, what would it be?
MS: "Hey Ya" By Outcast
EC: The opening of "Uncle John's Band." I'd like to be a little sneaky. But while on the topic of sneaky, maybe I should pick "Pink Panther" theme song.
The Best Laid Plans of Emma and Matt airs Friday from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. on WBOR 91.1 FM.
