(10 for 2013!) Quickfire Questions #42: Ralph Pelleymounter of To Kill a King

By on Friday, 21st December 2012 at 1:00 pm

Yesterday we posted To Kill a King‘s leader Ralph Pelleymounter’s answers to some questions Braden posed to him. (If you recall, To Kill a King landed at #8 on our 10 for 2013 readers’ poll of bands to do well in 2013.) Today, we have for you his responses to the TGTF Quickfire Questions. Jeff Buckley makes yet another appearance, and never would have pegged him as Freddie Mercury fan but here goes…

What song is your earliest musical memory?
Something from The Snowman [film], ‘Walking in the Air’, probably.

What was your favourite song as a child?
Anything from Queen.

What song makes you laugh?
Queen – ‘Bicycle’

What song makes you cry?
College – ‘Real Hero’ (featuring Electric Youth).


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.)
Jeff Buckley – ‘Hallelujah’.

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.)
Damien Rice – ‘9 Crimes’

Which song (any song written in the last century) do you wish you’d written yourself?

Beatles – ‘Paperback Writer’.

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

If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
Counting all the many pounds I’ve collected in my big piggybank.

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.)
Anthony and the Johnsons – ‘I am Bird’.

Thank you Ralph for your help answering these QQs. And thanks also to Nick for making this possible!
