The Music Intelligence Quiz via Very True Things.

Your final score was 129/180

Mix-Tape Master (109-144 points)

You are a music evangelist: the person in your network of friends who always has the coolest new song, the one whose iPod gets picked to DJ every party. You understand the art of the segue, how the key to the best mix-tape isn’t just the songs you pick, but how they interlock with each other. You also know who the up-and-coming acts are and are quick to recognise where their influences lie and whether they will make it big. You work hard at the pursuit of this knowledge, scouring music blogs, magazines and record stores. Most importantly, you are generous with your passion – and your friends should be very, very grateful. Still, it’s always good to get new inspiration for your latest mix

No, I’m not lying. Apparently I’m a mix-tape master and a music evangelist. It’s as much of a surprise to me as it is to you, honestly… particularly since I don’t visit make mix tapes, visit music blogs and generally the only time I visit record stores is to look at comedy DVDs.

Oh, and the Very True Man scored three points more than me. Swine.

    I’m a Birthday Party DJ (73-108 points), sounds fair enough.:
    You are a rabid consumer of music. You get a rush every time you hear something new but remain faithful to those artists you love. Your music collection represents who you are and what you care about and your home may even bear the tell-tale signs of your affections – posters, old band t-shirts and the odd music biography. But you aren’t a completist, you know what you like and make sure you have it. Simple as that. To expand your repertoire, perhaps there are some genres that you’d benefit from giving a little more attention to – perhaps now is the time to hear something new or get hold of that missing album from your collection.

    BTW, WTF does Q.19 mean ???

    Question 19 – surely it’s simply asking what is to Reggae as Post-Punk is to Punk…?
