As seen over at Dave’s another fun music listing thingy – answering questions with song titles. As I have the little theory that any conversation can be done in Tocotronic lyrics if required, my choice of band was obvious for this one. So here we go:

1. Are you male or female?
This Boy is Tocotronic.

2. Describe yourself:
Die Idee ist gut, doch die Welt noch nicht bereit – alternatively the English version The idea is good but the world isn’t ready yet.

3. How do some people feel about you:
Du und deine Welt

4. How do you feel about yourself:
Let there be Rock

5. Describe your ex boyfriend/girlfriend:
Jetzt Geht Wieder Alles von Vorne Los

6. Describe your current significant other:
Ich habe 23 Jahre mit mir verbracht

7. Describe where you want to be:
Drüben auf dem Hügel and probably neither Freiburg nor Unter der Schnellstraße

8. Describe how you live:
Aber Hier Leben, Nein Danke

9. Describe how you love:
Es ist egal, aber

10. What would you ask for if you had just one wish:
Hm, Tocotronic fail me a bit on this one, so I’d go for Ich möchte Teil einer Jugendbewegung sein or the only proper wish they mention: Ich Habe Geträumt, Ich Würde Pizza Essen Mit Mark E. Smith

11. Share a few words of wisdom:
Über Sex kann man nur auf Englisch singen

12. Now say goodbye:
So Jung Kommen Wir Nicht Mehr Zusammen

Hehe fun. It helps if bands have many songs to pick from I suppose. It might be interesting to redo this using Element of Crime or Belle and Sebastian. Join in if you feel like it!
