Babydaddy: What is in my iPod? I don't know, it's a lot of classic stuff that isn't on the radio right now. Franz Ferdinand has been in my iPod for months and I love them, we talk about them all the time. I love the Zooton which is probably part of that whole vibe. I listen to ELO as well as classic pop music.
Ana Matronic: Our music and shows are as much for hormonal teenagers and housewives with a dancing bug as it is for the downtown party scene.
Babydaddy: I wouldn't mind mixing Britney Spears, I think "Toxic" is amazing. It's a timing issue as we don't have all the time in the world.
Ana Matronic: I don't think we're afraid to play anything
Ana Matronic: None of us are lesbians.
