carol- wait...that means...your bi?!?! i didnt now you were bi?!?
me- ....ME NIETHER?!
me- (quoting interview) "With charismatic bisexual lead singer Maja Ivarsson at the helm, they are a band with a mission on “Song With A Mission,” and The Sounds give the impression of having fun throughout, which in turn makes the listening experience more enjoyable. That spirit carries over on “Tony The Beat,” “24 Hours,” “Painted By Numbers,” “Ego,” and “Hurt You.” Even a piano ballad such as “Night After Night,” which shows another side to the band, doesn't really alter the mood much." ...hay wait...wasnt Painted by numbers your default myspace song for a few...months???
carol- shut up!! i didnt know?!?!
me- you had to have known...
carol- ok maybe a little
me- this is just too good
so there you have it Maja Ivarsson aka ..me..is bisexual "im bleedin ac/dc you yankes!"
After ellen: I noticed a lot of gay men in the audience at the show in Chicago. Are you aware of The Sounds having a queer following?
Maja (me): Absolutely. We had a lot of dykes too, but it depends on what city you are in. But there are a lot of lesbians and gay boys. We have a big gay crowd. I think it's because we look good and we're not one of those sweaty, sweat pants, fat guy, pizza rock kind of bands. It's always been like that in gay culture. They're always a little bit ahead of everything. I don't like playing “Living In America”; it's not my favorite song to sing, it's not that much fun. But when you put it in the set with eight new songs, it's a bloody good song to fit in there. It makes the audience go crazy.
