Top study break song?
Caitlin McCarty: "Lost in the Music" by D.P. It's really an anytime song.
Casey Brust: "Glaciers-Her Majesty & The Wolves" by Roksonix Remix.
What is your favorite song lyric, and from what song?
CM: "More than begin but less than forget / less than forget but more than begun" from "Adventures in Solitude" by The New Pornographers.
CB: "You probably wanna know what planet we on/Can't help if I see everything in neon" from "ADD SUV" by Uffie ft. Pharrell.
If you could meet any live musician or artist, who would you meet and why?
CM: Joanna Newsom. I'm not a big fan of the voice, but I'd love to see her play the harp. I also heard she has an electric harp.
CB: Joan Jett because I just watched "The Runaways."
Why did you decide to become a DJ?
CM: I play music when I do everything. It seemed like a fun way to spend an hour and sort of a quintessential college thing to do before graduation.
CB: Being a DJ seemed like a productive way to be doing the same thing Caitlin and I would be doing anyways in my room.
If animals could sing, which do you think would have the worst voice?
Would you ever join a garage band?
CM: I've always wished I were a more talented singer. If I were, yes.
CB: Yes. But I would have to learn the drums before that.
What song would you dedicate to your favorite Bowdoin professor?
CM: "Take on Me" by A-Ha for my (mostly) secret professor crush.
CB: "Teenage Dirtbag" by Wheatus.
What would you wear to a '70s music concert?

CB: Nothing. Just kidding.
Best hip-hop song written in the past decade?
CM: "Gin and Juice" by Snoop Dogg.
CB: "Acid Raindrops" by People Under the Stairs.
Which song would you have liked to sing with Back Street Boys?
CM: "Larger than Life."
CB: "The Call."
What is the best musical instrument ever invented in your opinion?
CM: Harp. It can do everything a piano can do but has a more vibrant sound because you pluck the strings directly.
CB: The harp. Watching Caitlin play the harp is one of my favorite things to do at Bowdoin. But I also really like how the English horn sounds.
How would you describe Billy Joel in three words to someone who has never heard of him?

What piece of music advice would you give Taylor Swift?
CM: I'd like to hear a collaboration with Katie Herzig. Or Lily Allen.
CB: Keep singing and writing songs when you are older, even if you are no longer a popular musician. I think you are very capable of capturing specific feelings of high school hopefulness, and I can't wait until you write more mature lyrics.
Name a song to which you do not know all the lyrics.
CM: "Who dat Joli Garcon?" by Mashup Germany. But still a really good party song.
CB: "Sommar" by Fronda.
If you wrote a song called "My College Years," give a lyric from it.
CM: "staying up late is alright / when you've got pizza every night / partying or study time / pizza saves us in a bind."
