Question: What's your favorite piece of technology?
Rebecca Romijn: My iPod has changed my life and it's my favorite new reason for technology. I have so many crazy playlists, I wouldn't know where to start. Right now I'm obsessed with songs that build. I've discovered that I really love songs that build, songs that crescendo. And my best friend, totally by coincidence, revealed that he also loves songs that build, so we have build-offs. We've had five build-offs where we get together for an entire evening, where we literally go, "Really, you think that song builds? Listen to this!"
Question: What songs?
Rebecca Romijn: Ours are all over the place. Like "Free Bird," we all know is a huge build, but we've also heard it a million times. "Bolere" is an ultimate favorite. "Day in The Life" is a huge build. But we have a lot of opera, falmenco. It's super fun. We have 12 CDs worth. We just scheduled our next build-off for two weeks from now.
