In your world, what brings on more creativity?
Music.  Am inspired by songs.

What is the single best decision you have made in your life so far?
Every decision I have made has been a good one, I can’t say which was the best, til I get to the end. 

Why did you break up with your last ex?

For Sure.  Are You Sure?

 Are you watching Idol this season? If yes, how do you like it?

You have the opportunity to sleep with the music-celebrity of your choice. (let's say that you are both single and available) Who might it be? 
Paolo Nutini, but only if he sung all night to me.  And NO smoking.  (I think that wouldn’t be possible for him, he always seems to have a fag)

You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart right now. Where are you gonna go? 
Mount Olive to see my Boy!

Do you have any relatives or friends in jail? 
No I do not thank you very much, nor have any of my friends been in jail.  (I won’t say relatives, because I have a big distant family, and it wouldn’t surprise me!)

Who's winning the U.S. Republican presidential nomination? Why?
I have no idea.  I’m not very politically motivated (apart from wanting to blow up the House of Commons,  and I know very little about US Politics.  I shall ask my son, he will have an opinion!

See Above.

I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.
