Wednesday, March 3: If you listen to music, what song do you think you’ve listened to the most in the last few months?

I've been listening to a couple a lot lately. The Adam Ezegelian cover of Sweet Child of Mine. The Super Guitar Bros Final Fantasy Medley. Clamavi de Profundis  Song of Durin. I listen to music a lot though. It's as necessary to me as breathing.

I listen to so much music, it's really hard to narrow it down to just one singular song.

 

I've been listening to a lot of lo-fi jazz recently, so probably one of those?

 

Maybe "What's Next?" by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy?

Dang, I love that band. The absolute best for big band music, in my opinion.

 

I've also been listening to Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" a lot for no apparent reason. Just because, I suppose.

I've had "Start Wearing Purple" by Gogol Bordello stuck in my head for the past few weeks because my partner dyed their hair purple.  It just pops into my head daily.  Quite infuriating.

Other than that, I've listened to a couple My Chemical Romance albums on repeat during painting sessions recently.  "The Black Parade" and "Danger Days."

Did Iron Maiden have to pay royalties to someone to use the title for the song they released?

 

Maybe to Alistair MacClean or to whoever holds the rights to the movie theme (MGM?) ?

Highly unlikely

For this to happen they would've had to use significant parts of the song itself, not just the title - basically you can't claim copyright on the title of a song/movie etc and prevent people from using it. There have been a few cases I've seen around this type of thing and that's my memory of the result

See, I prefer to go back to the earlier big band and swing artists rather than neo-swing; Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie etc. May have something to do with the preferences of the group I learned swing dancing with...

Toss up probably between these songs:

 

Powerwolf: Where the wild wolves have gone

 

Brothers of Metal: Yggrasil, Hel, One (Ylva Erickkson....whoa!)

 

Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers: Swichblade

 

Recently it's been 

 

Skald: Norðrljós ("Nothern Lights") the entire new album, but that song in particular)

Tuesday, March 2: It’s National Read Across America Day! Did you read much as a kid? Do you read much now?

 

I used to read a ton as a kid and well into my early 20's. Then the ADHD really kicked in and it's made it harder to do.

Monday, March 1: Mori dons her Robes of Quisitorial...ness! What are your "Monday Best" clothes? If you work from home now, have they changed at all?

 

Work has the potential to destroy clothes.  No one wears a "best" to work, except for a few front office staff.

I did then, not so much now.  For some reason I had more free time when I had someone to cook and clean for me.

I'm not really sure, but given we have a radio on a work and a number of my coworkers like county, it could very well be a song that I don't even know the artist or title of.

 

Voluntarily, maybe this? https://youtu.be/JhiUacGzIg8

Thursday, March 4: How many different sculpts of Sophie do you own?

(From Eastman)

One, if I remember correctly.  2018 Reapercon is probably the one I have, what with the Frozen like inspired dress (of doom)

I have never counted; more than several, less than a dozen? 
 

Nine
 

Final answer. I think. OK, that was just a guess.

Most of them, I think. I have every KS, Reapercon and Artist con model, including the alternate sculpt from 2009.  I did not get the NSFW versions of the 72mm holiday models.  I have KS 1 biker Sophie with clothes. I *think* there was a nude version, not sure. So, maybe 3 I don't own.  And I don't have the ornament.  There should be more Sophies.

I will declare I'm a heretic and own a grand total of

I think, I could be wrong and the correct answer is less than that

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. †
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day, a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... ††
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.
