The Script are one of my favourite bands, so when the opportunity rose to ask their awesome drummer Glen Power some questions following their show in Washington DC on 7 November, I took it of course! First, we present you today his answers to the TGTF Quickfire Questions. But stay tuned here to TGTF, because we have a wicked full interview with Glen posting tomorrow morning.

Many thanks to Glen for answering our questions and Taylor for sorting this for us.

1. What song is your earliest musical memory?
Listening to a Beatles vinyl on my parents’ vinyl player.

2. What was your favourite song as a child?
‘Twist and Shout’ – The Beatles.

3. What song makes you laugh?
‘Don’t Worry Be Happy’ – Bobby McFerrin. [Editor’s note: sorry to those who don’t like this song, but come on. The video has Robin Williams in it. We had to embed it!]

4. What song makes you cry?
‘All by Myself’ – Eric Carmen.

5. What song reminds you of the first time you fell in love? (It’s up to you if you want this to be sweet, naughty, etc.)
‘Misty Blue’ – Dorothy Moore.

6. What song makes you think of being upset / angry? (Example: maybe you heard it when you were angry with someone and it’s still with you, and/or something that calms you down when you’re upset, etc.)
‘Wash me Clean’ – k.d. lang. It calms me down every time.

7. Which song (any song written in the last century) do you wish you’d written yourself?
‘Yesterday’ – Paul McCartney.

8. Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.)

9. If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
Trying to be one of the above.

10. If God said you were allowed to bring only one album with you to Heaven, which would it be and why? (Sorry, but double albums do not count.
