Chris of Mixing Memory fame has started a bit of a meme with this post and this post. The basic idea is that with just a few pieces of music you can tell what kind of personality (or lack thereof) a person has.
Here’s my contribution of some things I listen to a good amount. Links go to examples of either the song or the band.
What does this list say about my personality? What’s on your list? Let us know in the comments.
Antonin Dvorak – American Quartet.
Bob Marley – Kinky Reggae.
Deltron 3030 – 3030
The Quintet of the Hot Club of France (aka Django Reinhardt & Stephane Grappelli) – Daphne
Elvis Costello – Watching The Detectives
Frank Zappa – Don’t Eat the Yellow Snow
Grateful Dead – Terrapin Station
Hank Williams – Hey, Good Lookin’
John Scofield – A Go Go
Radiohead – Everything in its right place.
Feverish me-too edit by Sandra:
I took the test but didn’t think it was accurate since it left out genres I’d peg as simple or energetic, or jazzy, or a mixture, and I ruled out anything classified “religious” but of course I like stuff like Billie Holliday’s God Bless the Child. Also I don’t understand why they tried to link my personality to the province I grew up in (there isn’t just one) or my parents’ socioeconomic class. But whatever.
