What's your second favorite album?
MR: Howard Shore's The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
CB:John Williams' The Empire Strikes Back (1980). On a side note, we both agree that Jurassic Park (1993) by John Williams is the greatest soundtrack of all time.
What would you name your band?
MR: Chicks Dig Band Guys. The name explains the purpose.
CB: The Curtis Pops.
What's the best concert you've ever seen?
MR: Although my favorite soundtrack is Jurassic Park, the best "concert" ever was the Lord of the Rings marathon that I saw on the day the Return of the King was released.
CB: Since our show is devoted to soundtracks, we are going to interpret this question as in, what was the greatest combination of movie/soundtrack experience. In which case, mine would have to be Jurassic Park.
If you could go back in time to see a performance, what would you see?
MR: A rousing chorus of "Meet me in St. Louis" at the 1904 World's Fair.
CB: The farfare as Alexander entered Egypt.
What is your guilty listening pleasure?
MR: The Spongebob Squarepants theme song... "Oooohhh who lives in a pineapple under the sea?"
CB: Christmas Carols in July. For some reason, my roomates can't stand it.
What song is in your head right now?
MR: Anything by Rufus Wainwright.
CB: "Battle of the Heroes" by John Williams from Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. I was listening to it in the car just now at 24 volume (which also annoyed my roomate who was in the passenger seat)
