My Favourite Records… mit Emmy The Great

Emmy The Great

Unsere liebste Singer/Songwriterin, große Hoffnung für 2009 und Fastgewinnerin unserer 2007er Songjahrescharts, Emmy The Great, hat am 9. Februar in England ihr erstes Album veröffentlicht.
Zur Feier dieses lang ersehnten Releases spricht Emma Lee Moss mit dem Popblog über ihre Lieblingsplatten und überrascht uns mit dem Bekenntnis, welchen deutschen Rapsong sie auswendig kann!

* Your three favourite Punk singles/songs?

** „Ambition“ by Subway Sect
** „30 Seconds over Tokyo“ by Per Ubu
** „San Dimas High School Football Rules“ by The Ataris

* The best band/artist in London right now?

** Sleeping States
** Micachu and the Shapes
** Younghusband

* What’s the best song about London?

„The Saturday Boy“ by Billy Bragg. I know it’s not specifically about London but it’s got to be set in London cause it’s about his youth and he grew up there. I also like the Sex Pistols‘ lyric ‚there is no future in London’s dreaming‘.

* Your favourite song by Hefner / Darren Hayman?

„I took her love for granted“ (Hefner)

* A record that will make you dance?

„Don’t Worry Baby“ by the Beach Boys

* The best „new“ band right now?

Beach House

* Your favourite lyrics in a song ever?

** „Jane Came back with a lock of your hair, she said that you gave it to her, the night that you planned to go clear‘ from Famous Blue Raincoat (Leonard Cohen),
** or ‚There are no supermen, there is no superman, there’s only everyone, i learn from whom i can‘ from Diane Cluck’s „My Teacher Died“,
** or „everyone’s a little gay, why can’t she be a little straight‘ from „Pink Triangle“ by Weezer,
** or every lyric to „Across the Sea“ by Weezer.

* Your favourite song by Pete Doherty?

I don’t know but I heard the b-side to his lastest single and I really like it.

* Your favourite german song/record?

„MFG“ by Fanta Vier (Maybe this is very lame to German people but I used to be able to rap the chorus so I still really like it)

Actually, I just did the rap to myself and the lyrics are fucking amazing so I’m not ashamed!

* Your favourite record of all time?

Impossible!! Maybe – „Baby I’m Bored“ by Evan Dando or the „Green Album“ by Weezer.
