Alright guys! It’s Q&A time! You guys asked the questions, now I give you the answers! I did answer just about every (real) question I got. Meaning if your question was “EVERYTHING”, (and someone did ask that, I’m not saying names) I did not answer that because I need more specific questions. Also, one of the questions I got was “S”. So I don’t know what you’re asking. And you didn’t put your name so I don’t know who sent it. So yeah, I answered all the real questions. So I hope you enjoy.
Q: Do you like me? (As a friend)
A: As a friend, yes. Almost everyone here in the SiriusXM Hits 1 Weekend Countdown blog community I like as a friend. :)
Q: When did you feel you needed to start blogging the SXM Hits 1 Weekend Countdown?
A: I never exactly felt a need to start this blog. There was another countdown blog that was active at the time. I really only started this blog for fun because I enjoy expressing my opinions on music, especially hit music. I actually tried an Alt Nation Alt-18 blog, but that didn’t really work out for me because I mainly enjoyed hit music. And that’s exactly what Hits 1 plays. So I decided to try blogging Hits 1’s Weekend Countdown to see where that will take me.
Q: What’s your favorite animal?
A: I really don’t know. I never cared that much about animals. But a lot of my friends say turtle when they get asked this question. So I’ll go turtle. I honestly don’t know. :P
Q: I really love your blog I just wanted to say. I look at it all the time to see popular pop music to look into on grooveshark and see what songs people are interested in. I also love to look at your opinions and notice how they are always almost just like my opinion. I have a question, do you do hitbound and if so, where is it on your blog?
A: First of all, thank you for enjoying my blog and my opinions. I do my best. :P Hit-Bound is something I review every once in a while. Specifically when there is a dramatic change like several new entrants. But I only do Hit-Bound every once in a while.
Q: Have you ever considered having a section on one of yours posts, songs that people should look into? I know in your sidebar you have some songs to download, but not that many. I think you should post more. I know these questions and answers are not for critiquing your blog and are for easy simple question, and i'm sorry if I come of rude. I am just saying a friendly suggestion. You have a really good taste and I get bored listening to the same song for awhile and I wanna keep listening to new songs and I wanna see your opinion. Anyway, I hope your read this! Keep up the amazing work and congrats on 300,000!
A: Thanks for the suggestion! Right now I have a tab at the top of my site titled “New Album Releases” which I haven’t updated in forever. I was actually considering changing it to “New Hit Songs” where I have a list of new songs to check out before they become popular. I may very likely do that so you guys can have some new songs to look up. And thank you for helping me reach 300,000 pageviews. :)
Q: Do you have a song that you never get tired of hearing? If so, what is it?
A: There are actually a few songs that I never get tired of hearing. The main two songs I never get tired of are Avicii/Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up and Calvin Harris/John Newman – Blame.
Q: What is your perfect pizza?
A: I’m not really a huge fan of pizza. It’s not necessarily my go-to food. But my perfect pizza would probably be just sausage pizza, maybe some pepperoni. Very simple. Because I’m a basic b**ch. :P
Q: Are you a male or a female?
A: Very good question. Hmmmmm. Am I male or female? I’m male.
Q: When did you first start to get interested in the Weekend Countdown?
A: It was around the time when P!nk/Nate Ruess - Just Give Me A Reason, Olly Murs - Troublemaker, and Fall Out Boy - My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) were battling for the #1 spot. I started to realize it was pop music that I was mostly into. And I became very interested in the Weekend Countdown. One of the reasons is Spyder Harrison’s awesome DJing.
Q: Do you play RockBand? Xbox or Playstation? What's your favorite restaurant? First concert?
A: No I don’t play RockBand. I used to play Xbox however. But now I don’t. My favorite restaurant is most likely Portillo’s. They have some of the best hot dogs I’ve ever had. And finally, I’ve never been to a concert. A little shocking. But it’s true.
Q: What is your favorite group of debuts ever?
A: As of right now, I think the best group of debuts is one of our recent ones. The group consists of these songs:
- Natalie La Rose/Jeremih – Somebody
- Calvin Harris/Ellie Goulding – Outside
- The Weeknd – Earned It
- Zedd/Selena Gomez – I Want You To Know
Q: How old are you?
A: I’m 15. But I’ll be turning 16 in less than a month.
Q: Who was your 1st blog member?
A: I literally do not know. I’m going to guess it was reader Dylan George. But I’m not completely sure. He was definitely one of the first ones to start commenting.
Q: How often does Lance warren update?
A: Lance Warren, like me, posts the countdown on a weekly basis as well as his T45 chart. You can check it out at hiits1weekendcountdown.blogspot.com.
Q: Throwback song?
A: Apparently not everyone has the same definition of “throwback”. My definition of throwback is anything that was at least a year ago. So my throwback song will be the first solo mainstream single for one of my favorite artists. It is Calvin Harris – Feel So Close.
Q: Would you date a guy or a woman?
A: Personally, I would prefer to date a guy. But that’s just me. :P
Q: Have you kissed a guy?
A: No I haven’t.
Q: What are some of your hobbies?
- More sex
Lol just kidding….maybe… ;)
My main hobby is listening to music and I do that very often. Often enough where I don’t go a day without listening to music. Music is life!!! Anyway, I hate sports and I don’t really like any outdoor activities. I’m more of an indoor kind of person. I don’t know if blogging counts as a hobby but if it does, then that’s another one. I don’t really have that much though. I never realize how boring my life is until someone asks me, “What do you do for fun?” or “What are your hobbies?”
Q: What’s your most favorite song?
A: As of right now, it is probably Calvin Harris/John Newman – Blame. That may change soon. It may not. I don’t know yet. But I would definitely like to hear some new music from John Newman.
Q: How did your countdown chart get so famous?
A: I honestly didn’t think it would get this famous. It’s because people apparently enjoy reading this blog enough to come back every week. It used to be something I would just do for fun every week. But by hitting 300,000 pageviews, I realized that this is something that is important enough for me to set an hour aside every weekend to work on my new post. I enjoy seeing this blog grow in pageviews and comments. Now I’m giving better song reviews and I have a whole lot added to it like these milestones. My hope is to keep this blog going as long as I can. There will obviously be an end eventually, but that won’t be coming anytime soon and you shouldn’t worry about when it might be. Let’s just worry about the present right now instead of the future.
Q: Can you look up Bea Miller - open your eyes and tell me what you think of it?
A: It might just be the best song I’ve heard from Bea Miller. Young Blood was an okay song and Fire N Gold was pretty good. But this song surpasses both of those. So overall, I really like it. Out of the three songs I’ve heard from her, this one is the best.
Alright guys! Those were my answers to all your questions. I may or may not consider doing this again. Real quick, you all should check out Steve Aoki’s new single featuring Linkin Park called Darker Than Blood. I’ve been waiting for this song to be released for forever and I am not disappointed by it! So check it out. Countdown post will coming out this weekend as usual.
